My, my, my…only SIX more days until Christmas! Are all of you ready? Have you done all of your shopping? I’m happy (and relieved) to note that Craig and I are DONE! Now for me to wrap everything…
The past week has been a BUSY one, and I don’t know that things are going to slow down anytime soon! I went to a ‘Holiday Couples’ Shower’ for our dear friends Ashley & J.W. (sadly without my better half – Boo!!!!!!!), but I did get to enjoy a girls’ sing-along car ride to the shower and back with one of my faves, Julia! There’s nothing like singing at the top of your lungs to every song you know to pass the time on a long road trip!
Such a fun shower! And if you recognize the location, it’s because once again, it was hosted by another couple we absolutely adore: Lauren & Randall.
After the shower and our sing-a-long ride back to Northwestern Georgia, Julia and I met up with Craig and Julia’s hubs Josh & their children for dinner. 🙂 Always a great time with all of our special friends – Craig and I are so blessed to have such a great group of TRUE friends surrounding us!
On Monday, I FINALLY got my wedding bands back from the
slowest man on earth jewelry designer! Our design turned out just BEAUTIFUL and I think the setting will be much stronger!
I am absolutely ECSTATIC to have my wedding bands displayed proudly on my finger once again! 🙂
Last night, C & I were up until 1:30am making a COMPLETELY FROM SCRATCH White Chocolate Candy Cane Cheesecake (completely gluten-free, as well!)…We even had to make the GRAHAM CRACKERS themselves for the crust, since we couldn’t find any sans gluten. Needless to say, even the cheesecake hater Craig thought it was delicious!
Tonight, we’ll be making Christmas cookies! 🙂 And when I detail that experience, you’ll have to remind me to show you a picture of the Peppermint Plate we made last night! So cute! (And yes, it’s the same thing you’ve seen all over Pinterest!)
Oh, and how could I have forgotten!?!?! Craig booked our hotel for our trip to Rome in February!! You’ll have to ask my sweet husband all about it! 🙂 We are SO excited about our upcoming vacation!!!
Y’all have a great evening! Maybe I can sneak in a short nap at the office before my long drive home?? 🙂

Busy times for you! Can’t wait to see the rings all together – did you have two bands before? I only remeber one…. but then I didn’t get to see it too long 🙂 The dessert looks awesome, how was making you own gluten-free graham crackers? Looking forward to seeing you both in Jauary. God’s B;essomgs for a Merry Christmas!
Love, Mom and Dad
sorry about spelling – Blessings not B;essomgs ?????? oops!
🙂 My wedding band was originally one eternity band, but when one of the stones fell out while I was at work, instead of just having it repaired, we chose to have the one eternity band made into two bands with stones across the top. Can’t wait for you to see them! They are gorgeous in person! 🙂
As for the cheesecake, it was delicious and as a bonus we have a yummy little bag of leftover graham crackers to eat! 🙂 They were actually much easier to make than I would have thought…and we are finding you can really make a gluten-free version of most things, as long as you keep some key ingredients on hand! 🙂
We hope y’all have a wonderful Christmas! Maybe we can do a Google Video Chat with y’all on Christmas Eve night or Christmas night! 🙂 Looking forward to our visit in January! 🙂

The cheesecake looks DELISH. The wedding bands are gorgeous. And the snow falling on your blog! (was that intentional?)…PRICELESS. Love you boo! Kiss santa for me!
Snow falling was definitely intentional! 🙂 I saw the option and of course, had to choose it!!! Have to have a WHITE CHRISTMAS somehow right??? 🙂 Love you tons!
