- Gather the cookies recipe and all I need to bake them in handy
- Keep my winter coats, boots, gloves and all easy in reach(you gals understand me on this one, it happens every year when I'm getting ready for a party and I remember the scarf I want is tucked in a luggage....)
- Make sure the Holiday table setting(napkins, table cloth, napkin rings) is clean and ready to go.
- Have the house clean, especially the guest room.
This way I feel better in case something comes up or someone comes in town and need a place to crash...
