Visions of Sugarplums....

It's almost Halloween.
You know what that means.
Christmas is coming!

I've been starting to get the Christmas itch and it was amped up big time yesterday after spending some time with my cousin who might be the biggest fan of Christmas ever.
It started with Glade commercials advertising holiday scents.
Two months.... that seems like an awfully long time but it's going to fly by.
October literally disappeared in the blink of an eye.

But back to Christmas stuff in a moment.
I have an exam in a few hours (yes, I should be cramming) so this won't be a long post.
I was invited to join Sigma Theta Tau, an honours nursing society!
I joined, paid my dues. Literally. $100 worth.
But well worth it as it'll look good on my resume when I start applying for jobs and it's a good place to start networking.

Before I get dressed and leave to write the final exam for this history course (side note: I got a 90 on the paper I spent 3 weeks slaving away on so now I'm not super worried about the exam, though I probably should be), I want to share with you something I am quite excited about.
It's a new challenge I've set for myself.
After this exam, I have 2 assignments and 1 exam left for this semester.
The entire month of December I will have 1 exam (and work, obviously).
With that amount of free time I am going to turn this apartment into Santa's workshop but I also want to get back into baking in a big way.
I am challenging myself to bake 25 different cookies (or baked goods in general) as a countdown to Christmas challenge.
It'll be a busy December.

Exam time!


  1. Good luck on your exams.
    And how dare you! Give us November at least before the Christmas countdown begins! They don't make two month advent calendars!
    Oh the pressure.

  2. I'm hoping that the Boxing Day famjam will get to try out some of the Christmas cookies??? They would make a wonderful Country Christmas gift!!!!

  3. Jamie - I'm glad I have that influence on you - I'm sure John is thrilled :)
    Always up for Christmas/wedding gabfest over here :)
