Wow, these embroidered tennis rackets are amazing! (see above photo) 19 books to read before the movie comes out in 2016. Which ones have you read? What movies look good? I’m seriously considering trying out Capsules. I want to be more intentional with my clothes shopping but I think I need help! I laughed through this toddler interview. You’re not a bad mom. I probably need to read this every day! What are you up to this weekend? I have the day off today and am taking care of a bunch of nagging tasks! Also, Liam turns two on Sunday, so we are having his family birthday party at Chuck E. Cheese. Whatever you’re up to, have a good one!

First of all, I’m so excited to be a brand ambassador for Madre Beads, a small business of one mama who makes playful jewelry and accessories for mom + baby. She’ll be restocking soon and I can’t wait! I love Modern Mrs. Darcy’s annual reading challenges, and here is 2016’s! I hope to try and complete this one. If I were choosing a word for the year, it would probably be the one Brittany chose. Interactive books for energetic young readers. These are perfect for my kids. My friend Miranda is going to be one of the featured makers with The Crafter’s Box in the next few months, and this week she gave a good description of the project! This…

Today the kids have their Christmas party at daycare, and it’s PJ day! To celebrate, last night we went to Target and got them both new PJ’s (which were needed anyway) and hats since it’s finally a bit cold outside. I have got to try this hot chocolate tip. I made these green beans + bacon for Thanksgiving and brought them to a church potluck. They get so many compliments which is rare for a vegetable, I think! They’re my go-to now. Annual best-of lists are coming out, and I’m loving it! Here’s one list of the 30 best fiction books of 2015, and I had only heard of six of them – and read none! For the last two…

Do you like our Christmas tree? How about the decorations? ;) I think I need to investigate some sort of anti-cat spray for this situation. Anyway, happy weekend! I’m so ready for it; we have had a long and difficult week! This weekend we are hosting my brother who is in town from NYC for a movie night (Home is on Netflix now!) and I’m also going to attend the annual Messiah singalong with my mom, one of my favorite holiday traditions. How about you? To the mamas of littles during the holidays. (And maybe all the time, too?) I really like Erin’s thoughts on dual (duel) parenting. Did you shop the sales last weekend? I ordered these jeans (still…

This dinner in a jar really IS the perfect holiday gift. (photo above) Another easy gift idea, perfect for neighbors and teachers! I could have written Ashley’s post about having a big kid. A dozen ways to make mornings with kids easier. All of these tips are good. I’m all in on The Crafter’s Box. It’s like they looked into my soul and created it just for me. Planning on using this mini-album format for my December Daily album this year. I think it’ll be pretty simple to put together at the end of the season. *** I hope you all had a lovely Thanksgiving Day! Ours was great despite the water leak we are still dealing with, but that’s the joy…
