Friday ramblings.

lemonheels.jpgIs it silly that I am obsessed with a pair of lemon yellow heels in the middle of winter? Curse that Anthropologie catalogue! Especiallly since it gets me drooling over expensive (in this case $298) accessories when a) I will not spend that much on a pair of shoes and b) I need to start my Christmas shopping already! Is anyone else a superwoman like my sister-in-law, Alex, who already had all her presents bought and wrapped the beginning of last month? I have always been a true procrastinator, so I’ll probably still be getting last minute things up until the 23rd. Do you all have exciting holiday plans? Besides the normal family dinners and present exchanges, we make tamales with my husband’s family every year. It is so fun, very messy and well worth it when we get to bestow delicious tamales on friends and enjoy a few ourselves! The girls of my hubby’s famly are also having a First Annual Galleta Fest (galleta is cookie in spanish) in a few weeks. Speaking of baking, my mom and I always get together and crank out tons of holiday cookies and bars. My mom is an amazing cook and baker, she does most things without recipes and I hope I can someday be as good as her! There’s also the little get togethers we will be having with friends, so overall it should be a busy rest of the month! Anyway, I hope you all have beautiful weekends. Take care!

    The key to being insane and buying all of your christmas gifts and wrapping them by the time Thanksgiving rolls around is Christmas music. I was listening to NSYNC’S Christmas album in October. =P That’ll get ya motivated. haha.

    Christmas music in October?!?! Alex, you’re beyond insane 🙂

    Nicky-The galleta fest was a true success, with the exception of those nasty peppermint crips we tried to pass as cookies. Better luck next year for me!!! LOL! Toodles, ~B
