What are your plans this weekend? We’re heading up to the family cabin at Lake Wenatchee for sledding and a big Christmas feast with aunts and uncles and cousins. I’m hoping (begging) that my aunt whips up a batch of her famous London Fog. It’s like a coffee milkshake made with bourbon instead of milk and is basically heaven in a cup. Here’s the recipe:

  • Fill blender with vanilla ice cream.
  • Add heaping tablespoon of instant coffee.
  • Pour in bourbon (or other whiskey).
  • Blend and enjoy.

We’ll see you back here on Monday! In the meantime, here are a few links from around the web.

Do you exchange Christmas gifts with your girlfriends? I think these tiny stacking rings from Tumbleweed are so elegant and would make really sweet friend presents.

Is your calendar totally online nowadays? Or are you still a paper-and-pen planner person like me? If you’re in the market for a 2016 calendar, you have to see these chic Kate Spade planners at Merriment right now. And Target has these adorable (and affordable) calendars from an L.A. company called Sugar Paper.
