This and That

  • New this week, my current favorite meal, a Thanksgiving MUST, and a beautiful fall salad. Also, check out my gift guides for HER, HIM, and the KIDS.
  • We go on a lot of drives to get out of the house. We usually don’t have a destination in mind, just good tunes, conversation, and scenic views.
  • Looks like a blouse, but feels like a tee. YES!
  • I don’t think I will ever go to a nail salon again because of these. They are easy to do at home, come in a ton of colors and designs, they don’t ruin my nails, and they last for almost 2 weeks. So much cheaper and they look so good, like legit salon nails.
  • Super duper COZY!
  • I am looking forward to reading this.

  1. I loved the surprise ending of “Grey’s”. I read that Patrick Dempsey will appear in 3 episodes so two to go I guess. I wonder if anyone else will appear…Lexi or George or Ellis perhaps? I appreciate that they are addressing life right now and are trying to offer a sense of hope in the midst of so much loss. The first two episodes of The Good Doctor also addressed the pandemic. The episodes were was sobering, heart wrenching and yet hopeful as well.
    Great photo of you and your little guys.
    Have a wonderful Thanksgiving.
