The Best Of The Holidays / Appetizers

Don’t hate me, but I’m starting the weekend early this week and taking the day off today.  Since I worked through last weekend I figured it wouldn’t be the end of the world if I spent the day getting a little r & r.  I am kicking the day off with a pregnancy massage, followed by a manicure, a little blogging, and then dinner with the hubby before heading over to Caitlin & Caitlin’s holiday party.  If you have big holiday party plans yourself this weekend and are looking for something to bring, check out these 10 delicious apps that will surely have you invited back next year!
