Well it’s finally here, we are only a few days away from Christmas!
I know you are all incredibly busy right now but I am so pleased you stopped by, today, yesterday, last week, all year! Thank you folks!
As this is my last post of the year I just wanted to say a big Merry Christmas to you all along with the biggest of best wishes for a happy and healthy New Year. 2018 here we come!
David and I will be taking a much needed two week break from everything – work, stress, CrossFit, routine… you name it. And I can’t wait! So expect another post from me in early January!
So to let you get back to your present wrapping, Christmas movie watching, cookie decorating, festive tipple drinking, I will keep today’s Friday Favourites short but definitely sweet.
Favourite…Moment – Party time!
We had both David’s work Christmas party and our CrossFit Christmas party at the weekend and they were both really good fun. Sometimes you just need to have a glass of bubbles with friends and get dressed up!
Favourite…Feeling – Making cookies!
I always make a sweet treat for David’s co-workers and a few friends each year. This year I made the espresso cookies from Cook and Savor and they were delicious (I swapped out espresso for choc chips). But I don’t stop there. I always dress them up! Here is one all packaged up ready for an individual eat!
Favourite…Purchase – Wrapping presents
In my opinion, the best purchase is always the one for someone else. Here are David’s pressies, all wrapped up and now under the tree. He is the easiest person to buy for, the hardest part is actually picking the select few to buy! Oh and I adore wrapping gifts so this was pure heaven for me.
Favourite…Food/Drink – Saturday brekkie with David
We needed a good feed before the CrossFit Christmas party so we headed out for breakfast to Red Chair who do the best omelette! Filled with veggies, ham, Swiss cheese… it was perfect and all could ever ask from breakfast!
