5 Reasons Why This Weekend Has Been Great...

1. I had my work Christmas party last night and it was a blast. I work with the best people EVER at the best place EVER. After the party, we went with our friends Justin and Jessica and looked at Christmas lights. Love, love, love this time of year!

2. I slept till 9 a.m.(because my days of doing that are almost up), woke up to cold, rainy weather and went and had a pedicure, manicure and my eyebrows waxed. It was a very nice treat. I have decided that I need to keep my nails painted on a regular basis. I don't take near enough care of my hands - I bite my nails and they look so good when they are well manicured. I always splurge on pedicures, but tend to forget my fingers. Going to have to change that!

3. I did a lot of baking today. I made cookie jars and cake pops. I love to bake! It was fun to just spend the afternoon in the kitchen. Here's a few photos of the finished products. If you are interested in purchasing a cookie jar for $10 I am selling them to raise money for our adoption fund. They make great gifts for teachers, coworkers, neighbors, etc.

4.  I tried another Pinterest recipe today and it rocked! It's the easiest Potato Soup recipe - only 4 ingredients - I'll share the yummy secret. In a crock pot put a bag of frozen hash browns, 1 can of cream of chicken soup, 3 14 oz. cans of chicken broth and cook on high for 4 hours or on low 6-8 hours. An hour before you are ready to eat, add 1 8 oz. cream cheese and let it melt. Serve with bacon bits and shredded cheese. It's so good on a cold, rainy day. Here's a picture:

5. I had several autographed Taylor Swift CD's left over from our golf tournament, so I decided they would be the perfect stocking stuffer for crazy girls who love Taylor Swift and the perfect way to raise some money for our friends Clint and Kathleen who are also adopting. I posted on Facebook about the CD's and so far we have sold 2! I have 4 CD's left and one of them could be yours for a donation of $20 or more. I plan to mail them on Monday, so they will be in your stocking just in time for Christmas. Just donate through our blog and all proceeds will go to the Ellis Family. Make sure you leave your address so I can mail the CD to you! Here are our sweet friends and a photo of what the CD looks like. (the CD package actually comes with a copy of Taylor Swift's Christmas CD too!)

So that's been my awesome weekend in a nutshell! Trying to enjoy these baby free moments because they won't last much longer! Remember to take a guess at when you think Jackson will make his grand arrival! The winner will get a fabulous prize! You'll be surprised, I promise!
