Happy Friday, everyone! I hope it’s warmer in your part of the world than it is in  mine. It’s absolutely bitter cold here in Chicago, but on the bright side, at least the sun is shining today. Can you believe that Christmas is less than two weeks away?! I haven’t gone into panic mode yet, but since I’m hosting a Christmas Eve celebration at my house this year I know I’ll be running around until the last minute. What about you? Are you finished with your Christmas shopping yet? If not you may still be able to get some good gift ideas from this weeks Ten, along with a whole lot more. This weeks list includes…
