Christmas baking

Every year my mom, my sister, and I have a full day of christmas baking! It’s a christmas tradition, we mark it on our calendars in advance, my mom gives us “baking day presents”, and we put on cute vintage aprons. We start in the morning making batches of shortbread, dipping pretzels in chocolate, watching “Eloise at Christmas” and drinking tea… Then many hours later we finish the day icing cookies, cleaning the disaster of a kitchen we just created and drinking margaritas. Then I walk home and David sneaks cookies for the rest of the night! 

I’m One!


David and I decided last minute to spend a weekend away! I called a bunch of resorts in different areas, and then after finding a good deal we decided to head up to whistler! Our plan this year for our christmas present was to go snowboarding at whistler, so we combined the two. It was so nice to have a free weekend to just get away and relax. We woke up really early on saturday and drove up to whistler, we snowboarded for the day and it was so beautiful!! It was sunny, and the snow was wonderful! It was the first time we had been snowboarding in 2 years so by the end of the day we felt like we had been hit by a train! We got a bottle of wine, and rested our muscles in the hot tub.  Sunday we spent walking around the village, we went to my favourite candy store (which I have not posted any photos from because when david was looking through the photos after he was practically peeing he was laughing so hard at my hair… yes, i know, so loving. I didn’t have a second mirror to see the back of my head okay!!!!) anyway. it was a wonderful weekend, one of our favourites! The drive from Whistler home made me never want to live anywhere else, what a beautiful province!! 

it’s beginning to look a lot like christmas


On sunday I pulled out the christmas decorations… I had been aching to since november 1st but David still felt like it was toooo early, fair enough… The house isn’t decked out quite yet (notice our empty tree) but it’s getting there!! This year I bought a few decorations at target (the ones in the glass vases), and a christmas candle from bath & body works, it smells SO delicious i can’t believe it!! Luckily we live in the woods, so i can just continue to pull out huge boughs and place them around the house to add some christmas cheer!
