Well, it's been a day. A really fun day. A really FULL day. But a great day today.

This morning started at 6 when I had to run to get treats for our 6th grade girls' Bible study again. I just can't seem to do that one early. Not sure why.

So Bible study at 7. That's A.M. Kids off to school. A little time over coffee with Amy because she helps out with Bible study and that's "our time" each week.

Later in the morning my friend, Harper, came for a cooking lesson. She can totally cook, so I'm thinking she's staking out my house for a future burglery or something. No other reason I can think of that she'd want to hang out here, but it sure is fun for me.

Just in case you're curious, today's lesson comprised of Pork Tenderloin (my recipe which I guess I should post here at some point), how-to-cook-a-steak (we used the indoor grill today--brrr!), and Butternut Squash Risotto which we ate for lunch.

After Harper left I quickly made a red velvet cake to take to a party tomorrow, and then picked up our Bible study girls at school. We're--even as I write this--having a little Christmas party together. Can you say sugar rush??

So that's been my day. My feet are tired. I think I've earned dinner out with my family, wouldn't you say?

My weekend is just as busy as today, so there probably won't be anything new around here until Monday when I'll be linking up to the Nester's Christmas Tour of Homes.

  4. Hey--if your red velvet turns out moist, will you please give me the recipe? Thanks!

  5. I find that every day is crazy busy any more. I hope that January slows down. I would love that red velvet cake recipe as well! My daughter and I love red velvet cake and believe it or not, my sister-in-law and I were just talking about red velvet cake today!!

  6. After all that cooking and you ate OUT? You are so cute.
