a holiday filled weekend

Happy Monday! Hope everyone had a great weekend. I made the mistake of doing some last minute Christmas shopping this weekend. Never again. It was mass chaos. The rest of the weekend, however, was wonderful!
Friday night we stayed in because we had one helluva rain storm so Guy made some yummy lettuce wraps. (yet another idea from our lovely friend Maggie!) They were soooo good and super easy!


Saturday night we had dinner with friends which is always a good time! We wanted to get together one last time before everyone left for the holidays.


Please notice my hand in the first picture. Heinous. If you have no idea what I'm talking about, read here.
Moving on.... Sunday was a lazy day filled with baking, movies, and pizza. PERFECTION.


Peppermint Bark.... delicious!

Hope everyone has a great start to the holiday week! Hopefully you're not at work like I am!

I went out on Saturday for a shopping day with a few law school friends (one lives in Appleton and one lives in Oshkosh... perfect!) and it was surprisingly not busy. I was shocked. The rest of the weekend was uneventful.... lots of sleeping since I am working crazy hours. I love the experience and am grateful for the money but I am stressed out and beat. I am averaging 10 hour days and could easily be staying even longer... sheesh! Hope you're all ready for Christmas!!

Hehe... I made peppermint bark on Saturday to give my friends for Christmas! I used white chocolate and a combo of mint and dark chocolate chips! Yuummm... it was my first attempt, and so good!
