For me, this week has been all about Christmas Cheer & Motivation.  I still have yet to put my tree up in my home but I decked the halls in my office and put up a few little Christmas things around the house to get into the spirit. People where I live are finally putting up Christmas lights too, even though it's 60 degrees in Southern New York, yeah weird right, I'm starting to feel like Christmas town! =) 

This weekend I still have gifts to buy, Christmas cards to send, and finally I will be wrapping up things my wedding photographer needs from us. I put it off for way too long. I need to take my own advice and get that Cookie Press! Craig and I have a holiday party on Sunday and I think cookie press sugar cookies will be the perfect thing to bring! I just have to remember to chill the dough slightly before I make the cookie shapes! =)
