What to do Weekends #206 and Happy New Year!

I can't believe I am wishing you all a Happy New Year, already!! Christmas seemed to just fly by! Most of December, too.  Have you ever noticed the times you look most forward to, go by so fast and the times you're kinda dreading seem to just drag on and on?! I wish that wasn't SO true. Perception is everything, I guess!   Welcome to Shoestring Elegance and the What to do Weekends Party!
