"make or buy"
If you didn't see it yesterday, I urge you to read The Happiest Mom's post on holiday baking. Having just returned from a cookie swap with a decadent platter of other people's cookies, I thought it was absolutely fabulous that the hostesses said "make or buy" 3 dozen cookies on their invitation. How many times have you been invited to something like this, and then just completely run out of time? Or your head is spinning when you look at your to-do list, but you could really use an hour off and a cup of coffee among mom friends? I loved that everyone felt welcome, from those who probably stayed up late to make beautifully iced cut-outs to those swinging by the bakery en route to the gathering.
