The C word is back. Are you ready? I’m not. At. All. So, I thought a Christmas Prep roundup would be just the thing for us today. Let’s get inspired, started or finished with Holiday preparations. Usually by this time in December, I’ve done some shopping, wrapping and have the tree up but truth is? I haven’t done any of those things.

Oh, and I have to add my Homemade Bailey’s recipe..I stole it from Lynne over at Design The Life You Want to Live
13 oz Vodka
1 can sweetened condensed milk
2 c of half n half cream (or whipping cream)
2 tbsp chocolate syrup (I like Quick)
1/4 cup of Kahlua
Blend all ingredients and pour into pretty decanter (that seals) and refrigerate. The longer it sits the better it tastes. It will have to be drunk by the best before date on your half ‘n half cream though.
