November Around The Web

Hi, friends! I took last week off from the blog to enjoy Thanksgiving with my family. I love all the traditions during this season, and we were especially lucky that Dale had the day off on Thursday so he could join in all our festivities too! This month I hosted a baby shower for one of my best friends from college, celebrated Friendsgiving twice, and started decorating out house for Christmas for the first time. At work I’ve been busy working on Christmas product for next year, so my holiday spirit is in full swing! This was a also a big shopping month for me as I started buying presents, and a few things for myself as well. This Blue Clay face mask from Herbivore has by far been my favorite beauty find the month:

  • Next year I would love to make a wreath or swag for my door during November. I love this swag for inspiration!

  • Grace’s Cat Lady Gift Guide has been one of my favorites so far

  • We have family in Chicago so I am bookmarking this guide for our next visit!

  • The perfect potato soup for a snowy day in, my favorite recipe we tried this month

  • My New Year’s plans may need to include a champagne tower this year…

  • Beautiful Fall color inspiration

  • I never would have paired disco balls and died palm leaves, but it’s a new favorite

  • Cocktail tray inspiration perfect for December parties

  • Last, but definitely not least, we have started a few updates on our kitchen! I just ordered this sink and faucet, so a full recap after we finish is coming (hopefully) soon!

Thankful for you!

Back-to-School (Nine to Five Style)

Hello, friends! Here is my second annual "Back-to-School" wish list as a working adult. This year my littlest sister is headed to middle school (!) and I am trying my best to enjoy some of the same back-to-school excitement she is feeling even thought I am just headed to work per usual. Here are a few things I would love this Fall:
