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!

      You and me both! I always have the hardest time thinking of things last minute before a party!

    Enjoy your long weekend Jen! As for me, my holiday weekend plans include a Christmas Caroling party and spiked hot chocolate. I might have to add a few of these delicious appetizers to the list however.

      Thanks, Leah! Spiked hot chocolate sounds so delish! Hopefully it will taste just as good come Christmas 2014 😉
