Career Choices You Will Regret In 20 Years

Had a nice weekend with my little men.  Yesterday we celebrated my nephew's christening (I am the proud godmother :)). 

Hopefully this week will be quick and painless as we near vacation time for me and the kids. I really can't believe there are only 16 more days left to the year.

In other news I just read this article about Career Choices You Will Regret in 20 Years.  I think this article is spot on to apply to all aspects of your life.  Life is short - live without regret and make every day a happy one. :)

Just found this list of cool toy ideas for kids.  I just bought the ice cream play truck tent for the kids for Christmas. They are going to FLIP!!!  SO excited to suprise them with it!

That Darn Elf

Forgot to move your Elf on the Shelf?  Here are a list of exceptional excuses to give your child. 

You're welcome.

Had fun Friday at my company holiday party, which had a Vegas theme.  We had a local party Saturday night. I told the babysitter I was tired so would be home in an hour.  I apparently got a second wind because four hours later...whoopsie.  ;) 

Hope everyone has a great week!

Chocolate Pecan Pie

I made this chocolate pecan pie and fresh whipped cream on Saturday and everyone loved it.  The recipe is a keeper.

The house is in order for the most part for the holidays.  I made a gingerbread house with the kids yesterday. 

Yes, he is licking it.  I pick and choose my battles.
We have a lot of fun activities this week/weekend -- holiday parties, tree lighting among other fun events.  Hard to believe it's only 3 1/2 weeks until Christmas and then 2014 is over!

Hope everyone found some amazing Cyber Monday deals.  My kids are so annoyingly specific with their gift requests for example "a remote control plane that charges quick and stays fully charged for several hours and has all the windows and doors open".  Um yeah, no such thing, but I did my best scouring Amazon to look for it!! :)

All the baking is done and table is set for tomorrow.  Flipping around facebook while I wait for everything to cool off and just came across this Buzzfeed list of 39 European Christmas Markets

All the Germany markets = bucket list!

Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

I started to write that I had a nice quiet weekend with my little boys and then realized that was a total lie.  They were out of their minds screaming and tackling each other every waking moment.  Boys will be boys, I guess. :)

As a special treat yesterday we made this recipe for mint chocolate chip ice cream -- my big boy's favorite.  I left out the green food coloring and put in dark chocolate chips and it was awesome.  The recipe is a keeper.

Looking forward to flying through the day today.  Meeting a friend later for drinks and tomorrow have the day off so I can attend my middle guy's Thanksgiving concert happening smack in the middle of the afternoon (I guess they don't think anyone works?!). 

Quick workday on Wed and then lots of baking and prep for the big day Thursday.  Wednesday evening I also have to get my big boy dressed up like an Indian to deliver baked goods to some home-bound elderly.  This is apparently a second grade tradition at his school.  Super cute, but hoping we can fly through it so I am not up until 2 in the morning with Thanksgiving prep!
