Happy Saturday! And happy first day of November. Hopefully you're recovering from your sugar coma nicely this morning. My church is having their fall festival this afternoon and I couldn't be more excited because it actually feels like fall (see yesterday's semi-rant about how it's never cold enough for coats in Florida...) My hair loves the crisp, dry air and I am going to make use of my ever-growing scarf collection while I can. Who knows, maybe I will be eating Thanksgiving turkey in shorts and sandals. 

And now onto my favorite posts from this past week, curated just for you to enjoy during your morning reading: 

I can't get over how precious Sarah's sons "Where the Wild Things Are" costume is. It was one of my favorite books growing up and loved the film that came out a few years ago as well. 

Speaking of another children's book-turned-movie, Alexander and the Terrible Horrible No Good Very Bad Day came out a few weeks ago. Since it is only a couple dozen pages long, I'm interested to see how much backstory is added to the movie to extend it to 2 hours.

Prague was on the short list for The Next Adventure, but it will be saved for another trip. Two of my favorite bloggers just recently visited there and for now I (and maybe you) will have to live vicariously through their posts. You can read Jamie from Gunters Abroad here and Samantha from Wandering Grad here.

I am a firm believer in the concept of Inbox Zero. Espeically at work, I love the few minutes at the end of the day sifting through my email, sorting through them, remembering things that have yet to be completed/replied to, and knowing that in the morning it won't seem as overwhelming. Kelsey from Pinegate Road shared her experience working to reach Inbox Zero.

The Great Christmas Exchange sign-ups are going on now! I absolutely loved participating last year. I sort of over-extended myself by participating in three Secret Santas and let's just say that I was best friends with the post office workers. This year I'm just going to focus on one and searching for the perfect gift. I can't wait :)

What you missed this week:
Evolution of a hair cut (aka the slow realization that I look best with shorter hair)
Do more of what makes you happy

I hope you enjoy it! Such a great experience and a great way to get into the spirit of Christmas.

Jess said...

You should definitely do it! Such a great way to connect with other bloggers out there. And mail never hurts either :)

It was practically frigid last weekend and this weekend as well! I loved every minute of it.
