Occasionally I feel the need to bake for the festive season. Not for any one person in particular, but it’s fun to bring treats to various gatherings. Continue reading Christmas Cookies
I had the absolute pleasure of meeting my friend & her toddler at the mall yesterday. I drove up the mountain (escarpment) after work to get a bit of Christmas shopping done while we were there.
Unfortunately my friend’s little one is muddling through a bit of a cold? but she was in good spirits & had a nice treat of apple juice while we strolled.
I think we walked for easily 90 minutes with a random stop here & there. I do my absolute best not to purchase anything for myself in the month of December, but with my belly fast expanding I’ve had to cave & buy some maternity tights & one pair of maternity workout capris.
At the mall yesterday I “splurged” on a Burt’s Bees Vanilla Bean lip chap and a box of oatmeal bath sprinkles. It seems that no matter how much I moisturize, my skin is just dry & itchy. I can tell you that it was quite the treat to myself to have a nice warm bath with the oatmeal to soothe my skin (and the cat was pretty excited about it too & kept me company on the side of the tub).
I purchased two regular sized cinnamon buns from the Cinnabon kiosk at the mall for the hubby and I to enjoy & a box of small buns for my friend to take home. They are get husband’s favourite treat and he was very pumped to have them.
All in all it was a wonderful & productive trip to the mall. I got to catch up with a great friend & I picked up a Christmas gift ♡ only one item left to snag & one parcel to pick up then im done!
On that happy note, I leave you with a picture of an adorable 6 month sized onesie that my amazing coworker jusy gifted to me for the nugget:
Every Christmas since my hubby has been working at his current job, a group of doctors put on a fancy Christmas dinner for the staff and their spouses.

Last time on the mellow beat I mentioned we were heading out to enjoy the neighbouring town’s Christmas Parade with our friends. It was a very fun morning, though the weather was completely uncooperative!
