Ahhhh....vacation!!!

Yes, it's the sweet smell of vacation. No plans, nothing pressing to get accomplished or done, shopping is mainly done, wrapping is done...just pure vacation bliss! Our trip to Vegas was too much fun. It was great to meet all my hubbie's high school buddies. Nice to put a face to all the stories. And we stayed up waaay too late and drank too much and ate too much...but it was an awesome weekend. Believe it or not, I didn't take ONE photo!! We just were moving around too much and I didn't want to be responsible for my big, chunky camera everywhere we went. Plus, I didn't want all my hubbie's friends to think he married a paparazzi. I am waiting for some photos to surface on Facebook because other people were taking photos. Not sure I want to see them...hee hee!!

I have baking plans this week but that's about it for plans! Here's one more layout I did using the Color Me Daisy December kit this month. My mom is amazing in the kitchen and she loves to cook with my daughter. Here they are last year making cinammon bread or rolls or some doughy goodness for the holidays.




I loved using those postage stamp looking rubons from Pink Paislee in the kit. Too cute!!

I am going to be making my mom's coffee cakes this week. We always had coffee cake on Christmas morning for breakfast (plus a big plate of holiday cookies!) and I love it. It's my grandma's recipe and we'll be making it this week for sure. I also am bringing dessert to Christmas dinner at my BIL's and i'm looking for some good recipes. Any suggestions????

Thanks for stopping by!!
