Happy Saturday! I’m in full holiday planning mode this weekend, and I’ve gotta admit: I’m loving it. I’m taking advantage of a weekend without much on the agenda to finish my Thanksgiving meal planning and even start prepping some of the items that can be made in advance (did you know that cranberry chutney will be perfectly delicious kept sealed in the fridge for 2 weeks?) I’m also putting the final touches on my Christmas decor plan and picking up items I’m still missing so I’ll be prepared to deck out my house the day after Thanksgiving. This year I’ve been surprised at how many of my neighbors already have Christmas lights up – I’ve always considered that a post-Turkey Day event! When do all of you think is the “right” time to put up Christmas decorations? Leave a comment and share your thoughts, & enjoy my favorite links from the week!
