Weekend Roundup

Holiday Wrapping


This weekend I am…

  • looking forward to sleeping in after four mornings this week with meetings at 7am or earlier
  • playing in the rain…it’s so rare for us to get rain in Arizona!
  • grocery shopping for girl’s night menu items
  • prepping for Thanksgiving in Napa…I usually pack several days before a trip to make sure I don’t forget anything!


A friend of mine is hosting a Christmas wrapping party, isn’t that such a fun idea?!  Wrapping gifts is one of her favorite things to do and she’s sharing the fun with others.  We’ve been friends since middle school and one year in college she had a winter break job wrapping gifts at the local mall.  I used to hang out with her and wrap a few gifts if she got really busy.  I think of her each year when I’m diligently wrapping gifts for family and friends.  I wish we lived closer so I could attend her party this year and am so happy she’s living a life full of her favorites!
