Top 5

We are so close to Christmas, I can’t believe it’s only a couple of days away.  I am so excited to get home and spend some time with those nearest and dearest to me.  I feel blessed to work for an institution that closes down between Christmas and New Years – it gives me all the time to enjoy this special holiday.

I hope you have a great weekend! Anyone doing some last minute shopping??

Here’s this week’s Top 5.

1. Snow Day.  Yesterday we got 12 inches of snow in Des Moines and the city closed down for the day.  The hubby and I took to the streets (in awesome winter snow suits) with a mission to enjoy the snow like 5 year olds.  Despite the crazy cold wind, we had A BLAST! Complete with snow angels and numerous rolls down a snowy hill.

2. Host a Winter Party.  I love that I still have a couple of months to throw a “winter celebration”.  Celebrations at Home has some great ideas on party hosting, including this black and white themed celebration.

3. Get lost in a book.  I am so excited to have a couple of weeks off from school.  I want to get lost in a good book.  Any suggestions?
