Have a wonderful weekend!

Happy (almost) Halloween! What are your plans for the weekend? We’re going out for Italian food with some friends tonight, so I’m saving my appetite for a giant piece of lasagna. And I’m excited for the Halloween parade this weekend! Toby’s going to be either a wolf or a tourist. Hope you have a good one, and here are a few great posts from around the web…

Pumpkin chocolate-chip cookies? Yes, please!

Alphabet bookcase.

Let’s go backyard camping.

Love this wedding dress.

Do you think this ponytail styling lotion really works? If so, that’s genius.

Awww, such a cute print.

Rethinking sweatpants.

What a lovely wintery shot.

Ooh, I want to go on a photography getaway.

40 clever advertisements.

This beautiful bride wore this beautiful gown!

Kate Spade’s adorable inspirations.

Have a good one! xo
