Above is a fall take on these iced flower cookies (except with black sprinkles in the center – which I love!). This past week we’ve been squeezing in work during off hours on a small studio rental that we are hurriedly getting ready for a new tenant, which means a little rest and family time might be in order around this casa for the weekend (including a date with our favorite pumpkin patch). Hope you enjoy your weekend, too!
If you have some extra time:
How to (properly) roll cuffs via Jenna Lyons.
A fall cardigan (love this in black).
A cheeky vase I’d like for my desk :).
The challenges and thought process behind designing a book cover (from a designer that has thought up over 600 of our favorites).
Growing up my step mom wore these types of dresses all of the time. I’m surprised and a little happy that they’re back.
A few of these comments hit home for me, especially in these last couple of months of a ‘surprisingly expecting’ pregnancy (but a happy one at that). I thought Sarah Ridenour did a nice job of summing up what harmless, off-handed comments most moms with 2+ probably don’t want to hear…
How to learn self-control (turns out it’s a trait that can be honed, just ask the children – who are now in their 50s – who participated in the psychological ‘marshmallow test’). I’m trying the test out on Liv ;) and the habit-forming suggestions on me!
Ignoring the above, I’m breaking the meal norm and making this super-comfort food tonight :-).
PS if you’re in the San Diego area, here’s more on Summer’s Past Farms, that pumpkin patch we love!
