12 Days of Xmas : Days 6-9


Day 6 : Gift Ideas for Me 
I have a feeling most of my gifts are going to be home-related this year! And you better believe I'll be welcoming them with open arms!

 
Day 7: Holiday Craft/DIY
 I'd love to make some etched glass jars like the Young House Love'rs did! I haven't had time to do any small crafts lately though... I think these would be really cute as cookie jars for Santa too!
 
Day 8: Least favorite thing about the Holidays
 
I miss having entire month off like when you were in college! Boo on the 'grown-up' world! I hate that the older we get, the busier we are... there's no more wandering to the mall and the movies with your friends every weekend just because you have nothing better to do.Or ice skating on a random Tuesday night (see photo above) because you don't work the next day.  I miss December being a month full of relaxation and sleeping in!
 
Day 9: Favorite Holiday recipe
 I love to make my Red Velvet cookies for the Holidays... they're the perfect color for the season and super easy so you can whip up a big batch for parties and to give as gifts!

I so miss having a whole month off for Christmas. Wouldn't that mean we would be off next week?
