A Meandering Mind

November 16, 2012

Yes please!  Breakfast in bed surrounded by all these beautiful prints and fresh red roses? Sign me up!  I'm so happy the weekend is here.  This is my favorite part of the year without a doubt with crisper temperatures, happy celebrations and get-togethers, more warm soups for dinner, holiday cheer....but it also feels like a bit of a sprint to do a million of things before the end of the year.

So here are my meandering thoughts

|| Christmas Cards.  Yikes!!  I'm almost too late.  I have been ordering them from Minted for the last 4 years and I have been so happy with them.  Their designs are great and I love the card stock they offer.  And this is the one I'm thinking about for this year.  Always simple, because really, it is all about Little Miss A.'s photo.  And I have a cute one this year! 

|| Dessert. I'm making this beautiful dessert this weekend. I'm so excited to try it.  I love when other blogs inspire me to do and make.  Thanks Alison.  I will report back, but the nice thing about the recipe is that I pretty much had all the ingredients on hand.  Gotta love those recipes because you can do them spur of the moment.

|| Movie.  I'm totally seeing this movie this weekend!  SO EXCITED.  Are you a fan?

|| Gift Guides.  I thought next week would be a great week to do my gift guides of ideas I have been collecting to make all your holiday shopping easier.  So I might do a different one each day (You know one with ideas for your mom, one for kiddos).  If you have any special requests of ideas for specific types of people let me know (like if you have a nerdy friend and have no idea what to get her....).

|| Dress. I have a wedding January in Boston and I have been keeping an eye out on dresses.  I love this one but its a little out of my budget.  This is similar and totally within budget.  Do you like? I might just wait until after the Holidays. I bet everything will be in sale big time.

Happy, Happy!! Have a wonderful weekend.

  1. Nice! I'm sending this photo to the hubby so he knows what I need to be doing this Sunday a.m.! Your gift guides are the best so yes, please rally on and showcase something daily. Special request: gift ideas for clients. I usually do cards but want to send a small token to a dozen clients who have really helped send my business through the roof this year. What says you 'lil Miss Big A?

  2. Can I switch spots with the model in that photograph? I hope that you enjoy the dessert!

  8. I have to order christmas cards asap! I'm doing mine with Pinhole Press...ten dollar off coup to boot! We are seeing Breaking Dawn tonight and I'm excited! It's funny because Ethan and I went and saw part 1 the same day he proposed last Christmas (kinda makes me want some more diamonds hehe). The dress options are gorg and that pie looks divine. xx
