We're back!

Hope you all had a scrumptious Thanksgiving holiday! Mine was full of ridiculously delicious food, completely awesome friends and absolutely lovely family. Suki and I are both totally pooped after all that cross-country flying so we've been huddling together on the couch trying to keep warm. Next up, Christmas! I'm a sucker for the holidays, I know.

And we're off!

Suki and I are flying to Miami for Thanksgiving this weekend. I'm so very excited to be going home and visiting my family and friends. I'll try and post while I'm home, but I make no guarantees! Enjoy the weekend!

Cute 'do

I've been sporting this hairstyle for a couple of months now, but it's never come out as pretty as hers. I can't quite figure out what the heck she does here, but I'll give the curling iron, twisty move a go and see if it works.

Sleepy Weekend

I spent all weekend camped out on my couch with the sniffles and a sore throat {mep}. I just finished reading Harry Potter 7 in preparation for the movie-- I'm totally watching it at midnight this coming Thursday! After finishing a good book like this though, I can't help but feel a little sad because, what's next? Now I'm on the hunt for another good book. Any suggestions?

OK Go | Myspace Music Videos

Have you seen the new, super awesome Ok Go video? It makes me want a slice of toast real bad.

I dream of...

This tartan bomber jacket by Lauren Moffatt. I wish I could just wiggle my nose and instantly have this gorgeous-ness for my very own. Anthropologie has a tartan cape/coat that seems to be imitating one of her pieces but I tried it on the other day and it looked like the thing was trying to eat me. Seriously scary.

Friday Fun

I'm sure you've all heard of Fifi Lapin by now, right? Right? Well Fifi is totally bananas (yes I know I'm channeling Rachel Zoe quite a lot these days). I can't help but love this oh-so-stylish little bunny. I'm buying the book ASAP and I'm definitely putting one of her scrumptious prints (and maybe a pin too) on my Christmas wish list. Hope you all have a fantastic weekend!

Did you vote?

I did! It seems like such a small, easy thing to do but voting feels so powerful to me! Most of the time I feel so helpless when it comes to all the big things that are going wrong these days like wars, social injustice, climate change, species extinction, and the list goes on. Voting just makes me feel like I'm doing my part and making a difference, even if it's only a teeny tiny difference. It's so easy to feel cynical and bitter about our government and state of affairs lately but sitting back and doing nothing is definitely not the answer. Plus, what kind of American would I be if I didn't vote for our future American Idol  policies and leaders?!

Go Giants!

I know I'm a California transplant, but I'm pretty darn excited that the San Fransisco Giants won the World Series! Go Giants!


There's a Fungus Among Us

Although it wasn't my favorite Halloween costume (that honor goes to my Margo Tenenbaum get-up), my mushroom impersonation wasn't half bad. The hat was a big hit at the Halloween party I attended on Saturday night, and I was all too glad to let others partake in the shroominess because to be honest, it was pretty uncomfortable and I couldn't see a thing! Hope you all had a fun Halloween!
