Week in Review & Pretty Pintastic Party #186

Pretty Pintastic Party #186

TGIF! I hope everyone had an amazing week and is ready for the weekend! We’re back with another weekly Pretty Pintastic Party, but first let’s sneak a peek of the week – in the rearview mirror of This Scattered Life.

The holiday season is in full swing, as in ready-or-not Christmas will be here before you know it! Not ready is of course my status. No real surprise there. We do have outside decorations up (thanks Jeff!), a tree that still needs ornaments, and 2 gifts purchased. Baby steps – I’m getting there.

All my attention this week has been focused on my 3 nephews that I just found out will be flying in on Sunday. We are so busy planning our adventures that the holidays have taken a back seat. Our kids only have the 3 cousins, so it will be a reunion of sorts.

I did carve out some time to make Barefeet in the Kitchen’s Cranberry Pepper Jam with my friend Cindy. It was a first for both of us – and it turned out fantastic! I’m not sure if the Caramel Apple Hot Damn Toddy’s helped or hindered our process, but we sure had fun!
