It’s Wedding Day for my life-long friend Emily today and the grand finale (I think) of my bridesmaid career!!! Today’s list of links and likes is going to be quick because I’ve got to go lost 15 pounds before I get my hair and make-up done at 10AM ;), but, there’s still some good stuff for ya. Have a great Saturday!!

“Thoughts on Election Frenzy” – well put, Rachel
#TrumpBookReport Tweets – politics aside, this is amazing
“Since When Should 4-Year Olds Spend Six Hours a Day in School?” – this is a topic I feel pretty strongly about (I’ve even got a post for Monday on a related subject), but I imagine many would disagree with me. I’d love to hear your – kind – thoughts.
This week, the author of Very Married: Field Notes on Love and Fidelity was interviewed on The Simple Show podcast. I LOVED everything she said and resonated with so much of her story – especially the parts about marrying young and doing the hard work of “growing up” together. Definitely worth a listen – and I added the book to my “to be read” list as well.
I’ve long been a fan of May Designs’ notebooks, but their new Patterns with Purpose Collection takes the cake. In honor of National Down Syndrome Month, CEO Mica May worked with her son’s school – Rise School – to have kids with special needs actually design all of these beautiful covers. Even better, 100% of proceeds go back to that school and other initiatives to raise awareness provide better education for these children. I mean, I can’t think of a better way to shop. (I’m going to get Sam a mini notebook book (only $12) – the one with the paper planes – for his stocking and use it as an opportunity to talk to him about kids that are different from him. And… I might have to get myself a classic prayer and gratitude ($18) in Sweet + Sassy.)
I really like this BP. Wrap Front Pullover from Nordstrom. #waitingforasale
And this Bean Sweater Fleece Pullover looks classic and heavenly.
Speaking of my mom, she bought Nora this adorable little pumpkin shirt and these leggings from Gymboree. The outfit is super cute, on major sale ($9 and $7 plus an extra 50% off), and I think there’s still time to order it before Halloween!
And finally, if you missed my post yesterday where my sister styled and modeled the Remi Swing Dress from Cents of Style be sure to check it out. *Apparently the internet broke yesterday, but it’s back up and running now and – this weekend only – you can get the dress for just $21.95 shipped with the code DRESS2016.
Ok! That ought to do it!!
P.S. If you aren’t following me on Instagram, I’d love for you to join me over there too! In addition to posting random pictures of life – like photos from the wedding this weekend – I’ve also started a hashtag called #samandscoutclassroom with little updates and ideas of what I’m currently doing with my students. There’s some great stuff there – if I do say so myself – for those of you that wish I was better about sharing teaching resources here.
