Links & Things

It’s a happy day around here today! Ryan has worked everyday the past two weeks, including Thanksgiving and weekends, and he finally has a long weekend at home. We will be celebrating by indulging in some holiday shopping and movies, as well as attending Nutcracker in the Castle, a local event at a historic mansion nearby where they bring the scenes of the ballet to life in each room of the house. I, for one, cannot wait!

Favorite links:

If you haven’t yet seen the Macy’s holiday commercial, do yourself a favor and go watch it now.
These seasonal jammies are on their way to me and will be perfect for Christmas Eve.

While I’m not the biggest fan of Amy Schumer, I definitely can get behind the message that she’s sending to women about body image.

These cute (and free!) holiday iPhone background images will definitely get you in a festive mood.

This roundup of 20 affordable gifts is a book lover’s dream.
Have a wonderful weekend!

  • It has been 84 years since it stopped raining in Wisconsin, so it seemed necessary to document the occasion. 💁🏼‍♀️ #thursdayvibes #loveloft

@Disneyland is full of hidden scenes and little details. This area in particular, right around the corner from Fantasyland, was my favorite of them all! Maybe because we were there early before the crowds came pouring in, or maybe I was taking a moment to be nostalgic ... either way this was the first time in a few months that I felt happy and 100% myself. Perhaps that’s the magic of Disney that Walt always talked about.  #adultsatdisney #disneyland
