    I’m a silver and platinum gal too. I have done almost nothing to move ahead the holidays around here. A real slouch this year. And not apologizing! I will live vicariously through your amazing elfery. 🙂

    I am so with you on the holiday burnout. I keep telling myself – just 2 more posts. By the time Christmas actually gets here, I will be Scrooge.

    I have a bottle of Baileys and an Aeroccino, you can come over and we can drink drunken hot chocolates and get nothing done together.

    Have I mentioned I don’t have a single tree up (and you have, what FOUR?) and I haven’t started Christmas shopping. Oh, and I am hosting Christmas dinner (and cooking a whole pig) AND we’ve got 30+ people coming for New Years Eve.

    Ha ha Alex you’re awesome…should I post photos of the life-sized dust bunnies I’m living with? and the gazillion empty pizza boxes in the recycling from this week? And all my Christmas baking has already been eaten! Tomorrow I’m hosting a crowd of teenagers for a Christmas brunch event…what??!! they want to eat food??!!

    I think you did great with your accomplishments! Lets face it… all the other things on your list will be much easier with cookies and skor bars. Fold towel, eat cookie. Buy stamps, eat skor bar. Address cards, eat cookie (sip Baileys). You have your priorities straight! And you made all of us laugh and shake our heads while muttering “I get that, me too”! Merry, Happy, and all that. love ya!

    Well said my friend…. well said. I recently felt myself starting to hyperventilate with all the pulled together blog posts pouring into my reader reminding me what a slacker I am. Pinterest Holiday Burnout indeed!

    I love Skor, and I have always wanted to try the mock recipe but I never seem to have saltines…guess I’d better get some!
    Oh, I am always behind on laundry, who isn’t?!
    Thanks for the honest post.

I love your comments!
