Oh my golly. What a busy busy weekend. Jam packed with work, work party, Flywheel, decorating, baking, shopping, and more decorating. Holy smokes, it is like the weekend never existed.
Here’s a snip-bit of what happened…
This tree literally took like 5 hours to decorate. Why so long? Well, we couldn’t figure out “how” it should be decorated. Last year, we had a Seahawks themed three and this year I thought the beads would be fun. Then we had to go search for beads. We went to four stores, before we found any white beads. Low and behold, Freddies had them. We knew that we should’of started there first. Lesson learned.
Then…..we had to decorate the mantel and organize crap. This also takes time at our house. It is quite humorous.
Sunday consisted of Football and baking. I went a little overboard and made three kinds of bark. Last weekend, I made the Peppermint bark. These were a hit….But the Chocolate Toffee, Oreo, and Mint Chocolate are out of this world.
The Oreo bark is unbelievable. I couldn’t stop eating it. It takes just like Oreo cookie ice cream. Hands down my favorite.
I wrapped all the bark into individual bags for my co-workers. They loved the sugar high before 9am. 😉 So yummmy!
I’ll be sure to share the recipes this week, before I have to make more this weekend for the party on Monday night. My Nana is coming into town, and we are celebrating with family and friends. The bark has already been requested…
Our house officially looks and smells like Christmas. Simply amazing.
I hope you had a festive weekend!
Do you decorate your tree the same way every year?
Real or fake tree?
