Happy Friday!


{i cheated on dunkin' with an eggnog latte. my wallet hates me.}

It's Friday once again. I don't have five things for you this week because, well, I just couldn't get it together to make it happen. I did collect a great bunch of links that I loved this week and I hope you'll enjoy them too. Tonight we plan to get our christmas tree and spend the weekend in and around Jersey City doing lots of holiday things, with a viewing of Elf mixed in for good measure. Despite the poor weather forecast for tomorrow, we are planning to take P to Sesame Place for their Christmas spectacular. Here's hoping it all goes smoothly!

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
