Week's End

This week has been another blur.  Halloween feels like a hundred years ago, so it's weird to think that it was just on Monday.  I'm so glad it's the weekend!  Although I always have a long list of things I hope to accomplish/errands I need to run, there are very few concrete plans- just the way I like it.

The list making has begun for the coming holidays.  Thanksgiving menus ideas are swirling together with Christmas gift ideas, and my kids all happen to have birthdays within 3 weeks of Christmas (hooray for my first non-winter baby on the way), so birthday planning is also thrown in the mix.  I'm hoping I can spend some of the weekend getting the house in order to feel better prepared for the next few busy months.

Speaking of lists, I've recently come across a few links worth sharing:
-these ham and cheese sliders were enjoyed during a lunch with friends this week and were delicious.
-the coolest kid's duvet cover I've seen in a long time- a project full of patience.
-emergency car kits may just be on my weekend to do list, and this post has some great ideas.  This has been on my mind a lot lately.
-this post on holiday gluttony had a lot of great food for thought, especially in the comment section.

In the midst of relaxation and productivity, I'm also hoping the "extra" hour of sleep this weekend leaves me feeling magically rested.  Don't forget to set your clocks back Saturday night.  Happy weekend!

Good luck! You always seem to keep yourself extra-busy and yet everything you do is fabulous!

It was good seeing you yesterday...albeit a little rushed and hectic with the boys. Let's do something more relaxing next. My house? Let me know.
