Keep It Sweet Desserts Weekly Wrap-up 12/19/15

Posted on December 19, 2015

I am beyond happy for this week to be over. The second half of the week wasn’t so bad but on Monday night I was in a car accident with L. Thankfully neither of us was hurt (I’ve been counting my blessings all week), but it was definitely the scariest car accident I’ve ever been in. The other car ran a red light and my poor car took a beating but will be okay. L was super secure in his car seat and back to his happy self a few Cheerios later. I, on the other hand, am still recovering mentally. It took all of a lot of extra will power to keep myself from emotionally eating my way through every dessert in the house.

We really are okay, though, and I have a lot of good things to look forward to this weekend and in the next couple of weeks. Today I’m actually heading to my 18th (I think?) annual “Christmas Eve” brunch with my best friends from growing up. Clearly it’s not exactly Christmas Eve, but that’s when it started. This year I’m bringing pumpkin chocolate crumb cake and ginger pecan candy crack. Other than that, I’ll spend the next couple of weeks trying to soak up all of the good holiday cheer.

L LOVES building with blocks!

Happy as usual building blocks!
