Thanksgiving & What's In My Head

Is it strange that this is what's playing in my head today?

I had to show you the correct version so you didn't get it confused with Jessie Spano's mental breakdown after taking too many caffeine pills while staying up to study for her geometry test AND rehearsing for her singing group. I mean how much can one girl take?! (If you don't know this reference please move on as I'm sorry but we can't be friends)

I'm going home for Thanksgiving this afternoon and I'm pretty jazzed.

Things I am thankful for this year:

My Sweet Hubs

My Fantastic Family

My Amazing Friends

All of whom got me through a bit of a rough time this year.

Oh yes, and my Dad's new hips.

He's going to be dancing around to this song in no time.

iPhone Lovers Unite

If you have an iPhone you need to download instagram.

Did you know you can follow people and see their pics?

Well I didn't and it's my new favorite.

Just like facebook but with out all the chatter.

(Serious, do you really need to know if your friend's friend from junior high's kid is crying?)

If you were following me, here are a few you would see.

You can even like and comment on other people's pics.

Time to let your inner photog come out.

A picture is worth a get the idea.

Mildy obsessed with all things fringe lately......Particularly on my feet.

And by mildly I mean over the top insanely completely out of my mind. Obsessed.

The next time you see me, don't tell me I need to get my roots done.

Jessica, Lily and Drew all told me it was okay.

The ombre train has left the building, and I am on board.

Woot Woot.

ipod song of the day

Florence + The Machine - Dog Days Are Over

Pro: Scream-singing "The Dog Days Are Over"

Con: Thigh slapping during the chorus while driving may result in red and throbbing legs.

Or is that just me?

Bringin Back a Little Old School

Technology. A double edge sword in my book. I love me some iphone, mac books, ipods, apps, emails, blogs, and facebook but it's really kind of sad the good ol' fashion letter is now out of date.

What da ya say we bring it back?

I know, I'm not normally inspired to hand write, address, and stamp things either....until I saw these gems from Colette Paperie.

Who knew one day it would be so easy to show someone you really care by just sending a letter instead of shooting off an email?

Check your mailbox. I'm going old school on ya.

Hello Friends!

It's November. Can you believe?

I'm starting to get inspired again to post on this little blog and I think it's because the holidays are just around the corner. I love the holidays, in particular picking out gifts. It gets my juices flowin. So I was prepared when one of my friends asked for ideas for her Hubs for his November birthday.

I pulled this one from my own Etsy 'hearts'. I was saving it for a gift for my own Hubs one day but since I love her so much, I decided to share.

(via Nativevermont)
See, you customize this canvas with whatever you want. Places you have been, your dog's name, inside jokes, your anniversary date.... you get the idea. Her list includes '6 Martini's' which is how many drinks he fed her on her 21st birthday.

Hate to toot my own horn here, but since they are moving into a new home soon, the gift really is perfection.

Don't you agree?

Side note: Who are we kidding, I LOVE to toot my horn.
