grateful: week 35

inspired by my reading of the happiness project by gretchen rubin, i am instituting monday "gratitude" posts (read here for more detail), where i will list "3 things i'm grateful for" from the previous week.

the 3 things i'm grateful for this week are:

1) got the bf's knee surgery over and done with and he's on the mend!

2) finally got around to some holiday baking (annnnd eating!).

3) i went home to michigan just for the weekend (have to work this week before i'm really home for the holidays) for our annual christmas party with family friends.  i was put in charge of drinks - see below for a super easy and very yummy christmas cocktail!
