an extended weekend.

it was quite a weekend.  mostly spent at home whittling away the to-do list.
i cleaned.  i cooked.  i reorganized.  i crafted.  i painted and hung stuff.  i sewed.

looking back, it was pretty awesome.  i was really hoping to go somewhere & do something, you know- for holiday bragging rights- but a weekend around the house was much needed.  despite all the time spent on projects, i still managed to make time for bubble baths, movies, long convos with a., a birthday brunch and my all time favorite treat every night: hot cocoa.

i will share most of my weekend projects with you this week.  but for now, i will leave you with this- the yummiest (and easiest) hot cocoa recipe.
hot cocoa
makes 1 cup

really, really good chocolate 
cinnamon (optional)

place chocolate in the bottom of a microwave-safe mug (i use about a handful of bittersweet chocolate chips).  microwave until melted (about 2 minutes).

add milk directly into mug.  microwave until milk is hot (about 3-4 minutes), stirring frequently.  use caution when microwaving milk- when it get's too hot it will boil over the mug and make a mess of your microwave.

add a dash (or two) of cinnamon to the hot cocoa.  enjoy with caution- it's dangerously good- and you'll never drink the powdered stuff again.

i hope you had an enjoyable weekend as well.  here's to getting things done and a four day work week!  
hip hip!
