So, it’s December 22, huh?
I guess I haven’t blogged in a while, but it’s only because I’ve been busy getting sh*t done. I actually managed to finish my Christmas shopping ahead of schedule this year AND wrap all my gifts WHILE watching Love Actually.
It’s not Christmas until I’ve watched Love Actually. And it’s the first time in probably 10 years that I haven’t left my wrapping until Christmas Eve.
My uncle Paul also volunteered his day today (while I’m at work) to come to my parents’ house and have a Scandinavian bake-off with my mom. I hear there may be a kringle appearance and I’m so excited about it I could pee.
Raise your hand if you’ve had kringle before. I hope you’re sitting at your computer with your hand in the air like a nerd right now, but if not, this is what it looks like:
And yes, that’s an acceptable breakfast food at Christmas. Or whenever. Just so we’re clear.
Oh and apparently there’s a butter shortage in Norway. This means there’s only one thing to do. We Norwegian Americans need to pick up the slack and make even MORE buttery cookies this year.
