A LIttle Sweetness



I thought 
we could all use 
a little sweetness today

it has been a busy week for me so far
and this was suppose to be my free week
ha ha ha





 I truly hate complaining as I love this time of year


 
it's the running around
lack of sleep
trying to get everything done
I don't enjoy


at least my baking is done
thanks to the cookie exchange

you know I came home with...

shortbread cookies, peanut butter balls,
peanut butter fudge, cherry surprises,
chocolate coconut balls,
2 kinds of cookies 
and
peanut brittle.




can you say yummy!




on Saturday night
I went to a craft/antique fair
took my camera
and did not take a picture


nope



I did come home with 6 cupckaes
and a dozen mini cheesecakes though






and one gift that wasn't for me
yeah!





the cupcakes prompted this post
because I am sure they
are still with me



yup
there they are
on my hips!


Maybe I should have stuck with these ones instead



or even this one





hope you are having a great week!


xo

GORGEOUS GORGEOUS GORGEOUS Lori....you sure are extra good at Christmas posts :)

Any chance that the gift that wasn't for you was a mini cheesecake just for me?! ;) Actually, even just thinking about it seems to have added a centimetre or two extra to my already-padded hips LOL!!!

I LOVE all these images...how cute are those cupcake ornaments?

I know you love snowmen and one of our local shops has a very good window display which is all really beautiful large snowman....every time I go past I keep thinking how I would love to kidnap them and put them on your lawn as a surprise!! So don't be surprised if after one Christmas party too many next week for me, they turn up ;0

Happy December honey :) xo
