Is it too soon to say Merry Christmas?

a beautiful home, a great cheap bag, diy gold clipboards, and chocolate panna cotta
Because I’m totally ready. Garlands, snowflakes, pine-scented everything… bring it on. I’m officially excited.

But I guess maybe we’ll stick with the gourds and the grains for a little bit longer… I’m excited for Thanksgiving too. Especially since this year we’re headed to New York to watch the big parade. It’s something Mark did as a kid, and it’s always been a really special memory. So this year we’re taking Austin, and hoping we can create something just as special for him.

But enough about the future, let’s talk about the now — how was your Halloween?!Ā It rained on us, but we ran around in it anyway and Austin brought back quite a haul.Ā I think the birthday boy had a pretty great time too.

Eye this beautiful little home.

Buy this great cheap bag.

Make these DIY gold and acrylic clipboards.

Bake this creamy chocolate panna cotta with blackberry caramel.

A rant that all bloggers should read. And a great reaction they (we) should too.

I think I need to make this.

These awesome ladies.

Remember how I said I love apple desserts?

    Halloween was great for Batman and I! AH, I am beyond jealous of your Thanksgiving in New York. I’m looking forward to the holidays too. I don’t know why, but I feel like they are all going to be extra special this year…

    The girls in that video are AMAZING. I’ve seen so many great slam poet videos lately that I think they just might be inspiring a blog post today.
