Well, December has officially snuck up on me. I feel like it was just after Thanksgiving and I couldn’t believe that the calendar hadn’t flipped to December yet, and we had SO MUCH TIME until Christmas. Ummm, where did that time go?! I still have some shopping to finish up! This is basically our last weekend before Christmas since next Saturday we’ll be celebrating with my grandparents and my dad’s side of the family.

How are you spending this weekend?!

As always, you’ll find a recap of what was posted to the site this week, the most shared recipes, my Sunday dinner menu, and recipes I’ve bookmarked from other blogs. Enjoy!
