FRIDAY FAVORITES....HOLIDAYS IN FULL SWING EDITION


While last week I was upset the week drug out long, this week I wanted it to go Sloooooow, to soak in every precious Christmas season moment!! Cards sent, Shopping is done. Yesterday "wrapped" up my wrapping with an all day, blare the christmas music, drink Bailey's and Coffee all day wrapping marathon, and tonight it's Holiday Cocktails out with the ladies. I hope you're enjoying these festive Friday favorites as much as I am.

1. Bailey's
Speaking of Bailey's...I have professed my love for it on many occasions. A cup of Baileys and decaf and I'm out like a light sometimes by the light of the Christmas trees. I found a cope more cool drink recipes..check them out..
Just how I like it, clear mug and lots of Whipped Cream

And Look at these yummies!!!

2. Trifles
Nothing says Holiday Festive Food like a Beautiful Trifle in a clear glass dish. Your family and guests will rave about it's beauty when you know it was super easy to put together, This Red Velvet White Choclate Trifle is my most favorite dessert I have ever made or put on the Blog.

  29. Ah Baileys! Mmmmm. What a beautiful scarf and the Hunters are so nice.

  30. I LOVE that scarf from Italy! Just love it! We are huge fans of trifles around here. That mix of cake, cool whip and pudding just can't be beat and I find no matter what candy toppings (or liquor) I mix it only enhances the appeal.

  31. This post is full of all the Christmas cheer. I never think to make drinks with Bailey's but it sounds delicious especially with a little amaretto mixed in there. I agree red & green can be a bit too much" but olive does the trick. Love how you styled the outfit...fabulous as always! Have a fab weekend my pretty friend!

  42. I seriously had one (or three) too many of those martinis a few years back and spent the night on the bathroom floor while we were visiting old friends. EEK!
