Happy Saturday to ya! We’re headed off to our annual neighborhood Thanksgiving/Christmas parade with friends soon, and celebrating Thanksgiving with Jeff’s extended family later this afternoon. It’s finally cold enough to feel like fall here, so I’m ready for all the sweaters, boots, soup, and hot chocolate a weekend can handle. What about you? Doing anything fun this weekend?
Here are some favorites from around the web for you to browse with your coffee this morning. Enjoy!
Managing Baby and Toddler Schedules (When Your Schedule Is Different Than Normal) on Through Clouded Glass – practical advice for making decisions and adjustments for things like parties or events that conflict with your child’s schedule
“Velcro Baby” by Ashlee Gadd for Coffee + Crumbs – beautiful
Did you see this AMAZING mash-up of classic movie dance scenes set to Uptown Funk? SO fun.
Love these words from Clemson football coach Dabo Swinney
“Letting Go” on The Fisk Files – I needed this.
Threshold Christmas Brights Collection for Target – Have you seen these? I use a vintage felt tree skirt that my Great Aunt made years ago, and it has a whimsical vibe with lots of fun colors. These accessories would go SO well with it.. I’ve already packed my virtual shopping cart!
This banner (on sale at Brickyard Buffalo) has a similar style.
Also, Nora may need these. 😉
LulaRoe – Are you wearing this stuff yet? It’s kind-of the next big craze, and based on the fact that their products are focused on being comfortable, flattering, and affordable, I can see why. The shopping model is a little weird though, and I’m still figuring it out. I’m so intrigued that I’m even considering doing an online party for blog readers/friends even though I’m usually not into that. Would you be interested?
Ugg’s new Classic Slim boots – I got rid of my old Uggs during a closet clean-out rampage this summer, and I’m seriously regretting it now. I love the look of these new-and-improved cozies.
This sweatshirt would go PERFECTLY with Uggs.
I’ve had my eye on this shirt for a while.
Rain for Roots “Waiting Songs” – Several of my friends rave about these folksy albums that set the Gospel to music for kids. I’m ordering a couple for Sam’s stocking, but think this Advent one sounds awesome too. (Sold out on Amazon? Can that even happen? It must be good.)
Speaking of Christmas gifts, how great is this rollable Lego mat?
And one more Christmas thing – I just learned about Star from Afar and am thinking about ordering one for our family. It seems like a simple, Jesus-focused alternative to Elf on the Shelf… Anyone have one or know anything about it?
That outta do it! Have a great weekend friends!
