I need some tips.....

I am just heading to bed and I remembered that I hadn't blogged in a few days....

It has been crazy busy at work...I told Terry in an email today that it was actually almost uncomfortable how busy it was in the shop today. I really like to have a certain atmosphere in my salon..which is relaxed, calm..quiet...well today it was so busy...and loud and just not exactly how I like it. Now I know it is Christmas and I should be thrilled that it is soooo busy..but I am just afraid that my clients will get a bit ticked off. Hopefully they will understand that it is just a really crazy time of year and the next appt that they have will be back to normal....

We have such a fun weekend planned...tomorrow night we are going downtown for dinner with Jill and Jeff..so fun we haven't been out with them for so long... and then Sunday night we have a few couples coming over for a Chinese/Japanese potluck dinner....an idea Julie had after we came home from our AWESOME dinners in Vegas...Terry and I are trying to recreate a dish "the rock" that we had there.......really thinly sliced pieces of beef tenderloin marinated...brought to the table uncooked and you take it and cook it on this sizzling stone that is at the table... I found the sizzling stone a Stocks last week...can't wait to try this........and if all else fails and all the food is just horrible...pizza is really close by!
Then on Monday we have Terry's PAG Christmas Party at the London Club...great food there last year so it should be a repeat this year....oh and the hi light of my Monday I have to confess is getting my hair coloured and cut...... can't wait!

So a new development that has happened this week, Terry and I are going to hold family Christmas on Christmas Day....kind of a surprise but I think in the end it is going to be the best for me this year......I get to be in my own home and my WHOLE family will be around...My parents and brother will be here and Terry's Mom and Dad and grandparents....we are just so lucky that everyone gets along so well that we can combine things so easily...
I do have a bunch of unexpected things to get done for that now though.....oh well I love to be busy!!!

I am thinking about making a few "sweets" for Christmas now that I am having some company....I just can't decide what to make...........so I am asking all of you..........now come on I see that there are a ton of hits on this site everyday.....so now I want some feedback...send me your all time fav. Christmas cookie or candy recipe..........help a girl out here....:)

okay off to bed..big day tomorrow...winter wedding first thing...
