A Weekly Link Round-Up Where I Worry Me

Why do I worry me? Because I hate to wear hats... and I wore a Santa hat for a good seven hours today. That's why I worry me! I'm also planning to brave a grocery store tomorrow to pick up a few cookie baking supplies.

Happy Holidays!
Having worked retail for more years than I want to admit to, one of the ways I kept sane during the holidays was by not shopping after my mother's birthday-- which is exactly two weeks before Christmas.  But I'm not in retail anymore, and if I come in contact with someone who's having a temper tantrum, I can tell them precisely where they can stick their foul mood and be on my merry way. Rather liberating, that.

So I've been waltzing in and out of stores, Denis and I have been enjoying lunch out, and I'm still baking and stitching up decorations. In fact, some of my decorations were received in the UK today, and I've seen photos of my decorations on a Christmas tree thousands of miles away. Pretty cool, huh?

I know you've had your eyes on that photo. Grab a plate and help yourselves to some spiced pecans, Black Bottom cupcakes, miniature cheesecakes, and lemon carrot bread. I'll be around with the drinks shortly. While you're waiting, here are some links to keep you occupied!
