Weekend Highlights {Weekend Before Christmas}

Happy Monday! Very rarely do I look forward to a Monday but this one is obviously different. We're one step closer to a short week AND Christmas!

I kicked off my weekend with a friend's Christmas party Friday night.  She was truly an amazing hostess. Everything from the delicious food, drink, and decor was perfect. She left no detail untouched. 


My favorite part was the moscow mule bar setup she put together. I will definitely be stealing her idea for my own parties in the future. I NEED copper mugs



After a long Friday night of driving and partying a brunch was a necessity. Luckily, my friend Sam and I were able to go to our favorite spot (Wild Eggs for KY peeps). There is nothing better than skillet potatoes and Kalamity Katie's Benedict. So good!
It was also good fuel for the gift wrapping party that commenced the rest of the day. It was the perfect December Saturday spent with my friends, wrapping gifts, chatting, and watching all the dogs play.

I finally got to try out the Starbucks Holiday Flat White drink that everyone has been raving about on Instagram and it may be my new favorite. Forget the peppermint mocha, gingerbread, and all the other frill...this spiced drink is delicious!

I rounded out my Sunday by getting a jump start on baking for our Christmas festivities with my mom. She did most of the work while I stuffed my face with peanut butter balls but we managed to crank out dozens of Christmas Rock cookies. They are from an old traditional family recipe and are full of nuts and dried fruit. 

I hope everyone has a great week and takes some time from the hustle and bustle to take a breath and enjoy this fun time of year!
