Weekend Recap

This weekend was such an interesting juxtaposition for me. I felt like, “seasonally speaking,” I covered all of my bases: I celebrated a friend’s birthday Friday night, crafted mimosas and a gingerbread house Saturday morning with two of my best girl friends, spent Saturday night at a Christmas dinner with family, taught about Jesus’ birth Sunday morning in Sunday school, and baked and decorated gingerbread men with my mom and Shannon on Sunday. Upon some reflection, I understand pretty fully why, at the end of Sunday evening, I’m about to conk out before Barbara Walters’ much anticipated “Most Interesting People of 2014” at 9:00 pm PST.

Everything about this weekend has been nothing short of wonderful. However, for the first time, I have a genuine understanding of what people refer to when they say that this time of year is hectic, chaotic, and exhausting. I don’t know if it’s a product of being in the full-time workforce for the first time or what, but I’m feeling the Winter rush! But if there was ever a time when the expression “Time flies when you’re having fun” applies, it’s definitely now!

Happy Monday! Remember-only one more full work week until Christmas!


  1. Sounds like a full weekend! For me it’s chaotic trying to do all of the fun Christmas activities. I never feel like I do enough of them, and before you know it, Christmas is over.
