Happy almost weekend!
SOOOOO relieved that it’s Friday, though this week did feel all off-kilter with so much school cancelled because of the snow. By the way, you can check out our first snow of the season, plus a fun way to “paint” snow with the kids, right here. This weekend we’re sort of at the whim of hubby’s pager. If he doesn’t get called in on Saturday, we’ll try to make it to a friend’s holiday party, and of course, squeeze in all of the pre-holiday errands with or without hubby in tow. We also have lots and lots of cookies and treats to bake for teachers, etc. In years past, we’ve done salted vanilla caramel corn and graham cracker toffee bark (a.k.a., Christmas crack) for Scarlett’s teachers, and we always pop in a Target gift card, because really, who doesn’t love Target?
I’m thinking about possibly making these insane salted butter and chocolate chunk shortbread cookies, but I’d like to also make something dairy-free so that Scarlett can snack on some as well. Any favorite recipes for things that bake up easily and transport well? ♥️
I’ll be sharing what we’re up to throughout the weekend over on instagram (lots of fun behind-the-scenes on my insta stories too!), facebook, and twitter. Follow along! How about you? Any exciting weekend plans?
With that, a few little love notes to the things I loved most this week …
