Sarah's Favorite Things

How is it already November? The holiday season is officially upon us (and snuck up on me). This means lush scarves, hot toddies, cookies and then some more cookies, and countless hours spent online shopping. Wow, I'm not sure I'm ready. However, if you are, I've definitely culled a list that will make it easy to a get a head start on and avoid the stress of the season.

Sweet inspiration just in time for the holidays.

Jeans + Tee + Chic = Instant Outfit Update.

Some bunny loves this.

But maybe this one is in my stars?

These aren’t the familiar Toy Story and Where the Wild Things Are, but are fantastic examples of DIY done right.

Your baby can relive the ‘80s in style.

Being prepared is more than half the battle—arm yourself with tricks of the trade for transitioning to a toddler bed.

Then ensure that the little ones have sweet dreams with these smart tips.

Dreaming of Palm Springs. Now I just need this house.

Guest Post: Small Thoughts

Last night we had some friends over and we all ranked our top 5 candies from those available in our leftover Halloween stash. Mine are as follows: Twix, Sour Punch Straw (red), Skittles, Reese's Peanut Butter Cup, and Kit Kat.  Reese's Pieces and Milk Duds would have been at the top of my ranking but they were deemed ineligible because I had already eaten them all. I love Halloween.



We were Romans for Halloween. It was awesome.

We have added a twin bed to Calvin's room and are working on transitioning him from the crib. Mainly (only) because he can climb out of the crib and it freaks me out. It was in his room for probably 2 weeks before he requested to sleep in it. He spent one night in it but that's all. He can't fall asleep in the bed. He doesn't get out, he just flops around and plays with the covers and doesn't fall asleep. We waited one night until 10pm before my husband went in to move him back to the crib. When he walked into the room Calvin shouted "I'm sleeping!" Hardy har, kid. So now he wakes up in the middle of the night in his crib and asks to move to his big bed but we don't let him. It's a thing. We are working on it.

Of the Fall TV shows I started to watch I'm going to stick with New Girl and Ringer. I'm on Season 3 of True Blood. I am a new fan of Jimmy Fallon's show. I am already excited for Project Runway All Stars which is happening next year some time.

I believe I've been committed to my current tube of toothpaste for longer than 72 days.

I created a secret Pinterest identity just to be able to pin gift ideas for the holidays. And since you have to have a facebook or twitter account to set up a pintrest account, I also had to create a dummy twitter account to complete the task. I put decidedly more effort into this than into caring for my child today.

Calvin and I go to a Mommy and Me Montessori preschool once a week. Last week the teacher said Calvin did a really good job with his play dough. Literally. She was impressed with his play dough skills. So he's got that going for him...which is nice.

Remember how fun the mall rides were as a kid?  Bring it home (just in time for the holidays!) with this motorized rocking horse from Peg Perego.  My little buckin' bronco would have a great time with this in the (under construction) playroom!
