What a week! I’m so thankful

18 Nov

This week has been stressful. My dad was rushed to the hospital and was finally released last night. He is doing OK, but there are more follow-ups to come.

I’m relieved he is home, though.

I apologize for missing blog posts this week, but I’m sure you can understand. My brain and heart have calmed down and I’m looking forward to the beautiful weekend ahead of me.

Plans:

Bake THESE delicious-looking Pumpkin Cookies with Brown Butter Icing from my go-t0 baking blog, Brown Eyed Baker. I’ll post my own “How-To” Sunday. Can’t wait.

On another note, I’ve been reading a lot of posts about how companies and brands are decorating too early for the holidays. I LOVE  the early decor! Christmas comes and goes too quickly in my opinion. So the earlier the better for me.

Second on my list: Maybe  squeeze in some DIY time and make my Personal Holiday Greeting Cards for 2011!

Well because it is Friday and Lovely out, here are a few of my favorite things this week:

For the foodies: Salt + Magic Shaker Wands.

Make your meal MAGICAL!

Caroline Bootie from Target.

Because it is getting a bit chilly out.
