I’ve started my Christmas shopping!  Barely, but it’s a start, right?  And I’m slowly starting to pull some decorations/Christmas-themed things out of storage.  We attended Jordan’s staff Christmas dinner this weekend, so we really had to get into a bit of a Christmas mode.  It was really nice.  Good food, loud music (I’m a sucker for a loud bass, believe it or not – ha!), dressing up, great company.  It was pretty great.  

There is a food post on the way this week – I’ve just got to put it together, and finish eating the pan of squares.  

Love of Lists 16 - Whisks and Wooden Spoons

For the list this week, we’ve got diy, recipes <– of course!, books, clothes, encouraging articles.  A little bit of everything.  Seriously check out the ornaments, they are so great.  And the books would make a great Christmas gift!

  1. I love the style of the pictures on this blog, and I adore her writing.  This White Chocolate Ricotta Cheesecake she’s created takes the cake – it looks amazing!
  2. I found the sweetest diy ornaments EVER.  They’re SO cute!
  3. I love eggnog.  Eggnog fudge?  Sounds amazing!  Somebody make it and give me a piece!  (If I make it, I’ll eat it all.
  4. Currently reading a Nicholas Sparks.  This guy – he pulls me in and I don’t like to put the book down.  Such easy reads, so enticing.  This one it pretty good so far.  I read this one awhile ago – it was a bit different for him, but still really good.  
  5. These pj pants are so comfy-looking, and adorable too!
  6. I made this pulled pork (in the slow cooker!!) recipe for a potluck this weekend.  I’ve made it before.  It’s pretty awesome.  It has jam in it, which gives it a great extra layer of flavour.  
  7. I also made some Cran-Apple Toffee Blondies.  That recipe will be up soon.  Promise.   😉
  8. This is a great MOM post.  “When You Just Want Your Kids to Leave You Alone”  Humbling.  I need to be reminded of this often. 
  9. Some Christmas cookie inspiration.  These are so pretty, and classic.

And there you have it folks!  The list of the week.  

Would you like to see a Christmas baking compilation at some point?
