Friday Favorites from Candid Appetite, How Sweet Eats, Once Upon a Chocolate Life and More

Good morning! It's 11 days until Christmas and I am starting to feel a little pressure to get all of my baking finished this weekend and then shipped to the recipients on Monday. Everything else I needed to do for Christmas is finished and I have been enjoying lots of Christmas music, movies and holiday lights. What about you? Are you ready for the big day?
