Girl Friday

It's officially crunch time!! The last weekend before Christmas, last chance to get things done.  I actually feel ready for the holiday.  I just have a few loose ends to wrap up but nothing big left to do.
Today is also the last day of school for my kids so I have just a few short hours to run errands solo.

Tonight the hubs has an office, Christmas, happy hour party.  I am popping in right at 5 for a quick hello and a cocktail...

then the hubs and I have to shop for our stocking gifts...

and then onto a dinner date

the hubs just loves his whiskey

Saturday is my day of beauty...

(it's a lot of work getting ready for Christmas)

Saturday night we are taking our kids to Powell Hall...

for the annual Christmas concert.  This is the perfect night for kids.  The St. Louis Symphony plays all the Christmas classics, the ones that the kids know the words to, and they are encouraged to sing along.  They have hot chocolate stations in the lobby plus Santa and his reindeer show up.

Sunday I am taking my girls to a Sugar Plum Fairy tea

they get to meet the dancers in the Nutcracker while we have lunch

then it is on to watch The Nutcracker

I do this every year with my girls
Christmas 2012

And then after the show we are off to the Zoo for the Wild Lights display

then ending our weekend with dinner with Santa  at the zoo

ho ho ho,  have a beautiful weekend!!


  1. Jam packed!! I would expect nothing less of you. :-) That all sounds like so much fun. The Orchestra night sounds right up my alley. I need to get the kids to our zoo lights in the next 2 weeks while they are off from school.

    Enjoy your weekend!!!

  2. Wishing you and your family a Happy Christmas. Hope you have a fun filled day.
