Fave Friday

A lot on my mind lately.  Mostly that, still, I need 5 more hours in the day and another set [or two] of arms.   I’m not gonna lie lovelies, the idea of the holidays is major stressing me out.  Just call me scrooge.  I think this is the first year, ever, that I have not one ounce of excitement.  I probably wouldn’t even mind if they just passed on by.  I know, I know….but I’m sure some of you feel the same way, yes?  But… I’ve got FOUR [omg] little la la’s that are nothing but excited about this time of year and, well, I can’t let them down.

So…. here is to finding some holiday cheer this weekend!  I’m starting with the picture of that house that was like everyone’s Christmas screensaver 10 years ago.  Lame?  Maybe.  But it might already be working a little bit.  AND ….  I think I’ll head over to pinterest + get my holiday board going.  That should help!  Meet me there!  [hey, have you seen any super cute stockings?].

Ok.. And…maybe listening to this will help + taking advantage of this sale. fa la la la? la! la!

ps- on a totally random note….Do you have the new Coldplay album?  Do you like?  Gosh they are my favorite.  Their music is tragic + melancholy and happy + hopeful all at the same time.  How do they do that?

I think of living in France almost daily.  Here is a little story of an American + French play date [sort of, you’ll see].

I love the Living With Kids series over at Design Mom and I’ve been drooling over this house in particular this week [btw, she has some seriously great giveaways going on right now].

I’m always looking for the perfect flats.  I’ve never thought about making them.

Blogging is usually all about girls.  I love this i heart list for boys.

Dwell Studio is hosting a “My Modern Thanksgiving” contest.  Fun ideas + if you take a look please vote for my friend Caitlin.  I hope she wins!

Don’t forget to enter the Jewel Mint Giveaway.  A little shiny for you to get or give!
