On the 8th day 'till Christmas my true love gave to me...

Seared tuna, roasted corn and sundried tomato salsa & roasted po-ta-tooooooessss.
[that was me singin', folks]

MR and I are working to get into the holiday spirit! Now that I am done with work until Christmas, it's time for present wrapping, cookie baking, baby snuggling, celebrating, movie watching & loving.
Last night MR cooked me a beautiful and delicious dinner(seriously, I'm drooling remembering how good it was) while I took a blissful shower and then had a glass of wine and wrapped our presents.
[Our gifts this year are wrapped in simple shipping paper, names have been hand painted on & they're all topped off with handmade bows!  These happen to be all of my girlfriends gifts :)]
The night was finished with a massage for MR(he'd cooked for me, afterall) and a viewing of National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation.  I just LOVE that movie!

Hope your weekend is off to a festive start as well!

9 love notes:

  1. Looks like someone's boyfriend is a good cook! :) I adore your homemade wrappings. By any chance do you have a link to a tutorial for how to make the handmade bows? They're darling!

  3. Super cute wrapping my dear! Hope you have a good one and enjoy the holidays gorgeous!!!
