Friday Five

Posted on November 17th, 2017

6 days until my FAVORITE holiday!  Thanksgiving wraps up so many of my favorite elements– food, football, family, tradition, and gratitude.  We will be back in St. Louis this year, and since I haven’t been in St. Louis for the holidays since 2015 it will be particularly meaningful.  But first…

Ian and I are heading to The Game (the annual Harvard/Yale football matchup) in New Haven tomorrow.  Given the quality of Ivy League football, we’re really mostly in it for the reunions with friends and tailgates.  It is rude to show up empty handed, so I’ll stock our car with a myriad of goodies.  I just took these Caramel Apple Cheesecake bars out of the oven… they seem promising!


The article says it all: “Dog lovers, this is the moment you have been waiting for.”  You can now match your loungewear with your pup.  Twinning and winning.  (Although the pajamas I have my eye on don’t come in doggie sizes.  Sorry, Gracie)


We’re definitely pretty far from being able to furnishing/decorating our house, but we couldn’t resist picking up this print from Chasing Paper’s new collection.  I love the message in a kitchen or dining room, Ian loves the Beatles, and we both love color.  No matter where it ends up, it will be bringing good vibes.


I stumbled upon the most fun Instagram account this week (as pictured above).  Marie combines cheeky humor, puns, and exquisite baking photos–  I can’t stop scrolling!


Wanted: navy mittens to coordinate with my new hat.  Maybe these?  Anyone have any suggestions?
