Holiday Spiritness

We're pretty much fully half way through the month and i have yet to say anything about the Holidays!

Last weekend was spent in a lot of Christmas tree decorating, and apparently I'm kind of pro! HeeHee

I don't know about you, but I think that spending a cold Saturday night drinking vino & tree decorating with good friends is pretty awesome!!

Yvonne's little blue & silver tree
Sunday morning I woke up with the motivation to decorate my own tree - which had been standing naked in my living room for 4 days. Popped in Jingle All The Way in the meantime - I hadn't seen it but it definitely won't be making its way onto my list of favourite Christmas movies of all time.

My big red & silver tree
By day...
& by night.
I haven't been too much in the Christmas spirit this year, not sure why. Probably has something to do with living alone. But I put up my tree, put out my outdoor lights & am motivating myself to do some baking by buying all of the necessary ingredients. Things are pretty busy though, I'm not sure when I'm going to fit it all in!

Oh yes...and I may or may not have not started my Christmas shopping. At all. And I juuust started getting some ideas for gifts today! *eek* I think the fact that I was so stressed about not knowing what to buy people also didn't help the lack of Christmas spirit. So this week, it'll be in full force! :)

Tonight I'm enjoying some Glühwein, which is a warm winter German version of sangria. Basically, it's heated spiced red wine. And I looove it. I brought back a bunch of Glühwein spices 2 years ago & I'm glad I did. Not that I wouldn't be able to find any here at an ethnic store, but knowing where it came from makes it that much more delicious! I don't normally like red wine, but I love this so I definitely recommend trying it :))

That reminds me - I really need to do my Christmas cards. That are being mailed to Europe...oops!
