Let me give you the play-by-play of my day today: I left the house at nine to journey down to Reno to do all of my Christmas shopping. Fantastically, I was done with all of my gift shopping by ten (and a little personal shopping... I can't turn down running tights sales), but then came grocery shopping until one-thirty. As much as I love Costco, today was a crazy mess, and I can only take limited doses of that much humanity.
Upon finally returning home at two, I ate a quick lunch and began on my baking/cooking/prepping adventure extraordinaire (you know there are pictures coming). It's 5:10 pm as I sit down to write this, and I just got off my feet. This blog post is my work break before I return to the food-prep marathon and start whipping up all the other components of tonight's eight person meal, and then I will immediately begin gift wrapping.

Yea, I'm definitely a housewife deep down.

|Ornaments from my Nutcracker days. These ballerina ornaments carry so many memories.|
