Pre-Holiday Weekend Prep & Links

We made it to Friday! What a week it has been. I took some time for myself this week to reboot and regroup. Stress has been heavily weighing me down lately, so I needed to take a deep breath and eliminate a few things that just aren’t a priority right now. We’ve all been there, and I’m sure some of this won’t resolve itself until after the holidays. But, that’s life!

Pre-Holiday Weekend Prep & Links

Follow me on Instagram!

On the upside, I’m excited to head into a busy weekend full of Thanksgiving preparations! I purposely held off on grocery shopping for the big day until Ryan was home from work. That way he can come with me and push the cart while I reference my three different shopping lists! We also are almost there with finishing up the details and finishing touches on our home projects. You guys, I can’t WAIT to share our half bathroom with you in the next couple weeks. I will share our finished dining room and Thanksgiving table next week, so stay tuned!

Anyways, in true Friday fashion, here’s a few links and articles that I enjoyed from the week.

| I think we all agree that Julia from Gal Meets Glam has the most enviable head of hair, and now we can achieve those same effortless curls. I also think I might try the original Bare Minerals foundation again since it’s her go-to.

| T-minus one week until Gilmore Girls! Updated cast pictures are sure to get you in the mood. Oh, and did you know that Jimmy Fallon also is a big fan? I loved his #GilmoreGirlsTop4. (Psst – mine are Sookie, Michele, Paris and Emily).

| For all of you that already have started your Christmas decorating, check out these 7 ideas to steal from Target’s holiday catalog. I cannot wait to get started on our own house!

That’s all for now – have a great weekend!

Linking up with Amanda.

    We’re doing all of our Thanksgiving shopping tonight. I’m so excited for the day to finally be here!

    Also, I love that Jimmy Fallon clip. My top 4: Kirk, Emily, Luke, and Mrs. Kim (excluding the two leading ladies, of course).
