Shopping finished? Gifts wrapped?

I've wrapped all of the gifts I have so far. Sounds impressive, right? Wrong! I still have a considerable amount of shopping to do. I'm off work tomorrow and while I had planned on being home all day to play along with guest blogger Colleen Love, it looks like I'm going to have to make a trip to the mall with all of the other crazy procrastinators.
Lindsay and I (mostly Lindsay) made Rum Ball last night. Tim's sister always makes them and we love them but never have rum on hand to make them. We're not big drinkers here and if there's alcohol in the house it's more likely to be plain old beer. They're a no bake cookie and oh, so good. If anyone's interested, I'll share the recipe.
Hope everyone is having a great weekend!
