In t-minus 7 days I will be lying on this beach…. to say I’m excited would be the understatement of the year! It has been a year since our last vacation and not to be annoying but we are overdue for some R & R. 
Our plan for our vacation is basically no plan - I’m going to download some ebooks, lather up the sunblock and enjoy afternoon naps. Florida weather, you better cooperate! High-res

Some times we need a bit of a reminder to think happy thoughts - positive thinking can be very powerful! Plus, this print is so darn adorable in the gold frame. One day I hope to have a stunning home office where I can hang all my girly prints!

For the magazine’s fall Food issue, we treated six second graders from P.S. 295 in Brooklyn to dinner at Daniel, where the seven-course tasting menu goes for $220 a person.

This video made MY DAY! So cute and fun to watch, foodies will love this.

As you all know, I love tablescapes and get so excited when I host a dinner party as it gives me an excuse to buy fresh flowers and decorate the heck out of our dining room table. Since my tablescapes have been lacking lately I was very happy to see my sister-in-law create some amazing ones!

She posted a number on her blog today - they range from holiday glam to rustic chic!

This past weekend was Canadian Thanksgiving and we had a wonderful time celebrating with our families! It was full of delicious food, laughter and stretchy pants - stretchy pants really are the best thing EVER.

We’re now looking forward to my 30th birthday and our Euro trip turned relaxing trip to Florida which I’m sure will be lovely! October is shaping up to be a fantastic month.

These gold pumpkin place cards can be filed under my “gold” obsession and perfect timing since Canadian Thanksgiving is next weekend (yes, I know it is weird we do it so early)! There may be some spray painting in my future. Check out the tutorial at Style Me Pretty.
