I admit that I’m already on my second cup of coffee and still moving a bit slower after a late-night holiday party at a friend’s house last night — thank goodness for another day of the weekend, with time to lay around, watch a Christmas movie, and finally finish getting all my holiday cards ready to send out. Oh, and hopefully make a healthy, detox-worthy recipe for dinner, like this White Bean, Kale & Squash Minestrone — I’m in serious need of some clean eating! All our decorating is done, which makes it so much more fun to have a cozy day at home. What are all of you up to today? Hope it’s full of festivity, and enjoy my favorite links from the past week!Women confess the dumbest things they spend money on (are you guilty of any of these?)
