Random thoughts on a chilly falling leaf fall morning:

1. If you are local, mark your calendars for October 22 at McKinney High School. It’s time for the first Christmas craft fair of the year. Every year our local high school has a craft fair where local artisans bring their handmade candles and soap and crocheted stockings and paper mache Santas and painted ornaments and all their other wares and put them on tables.

And then?

We get to shop.

My favorite thing.

2. It was an amazing week on the blog. We talked about:

3. What is your favorite subscription box service? I’m thinking about giving them as Christmas presents.

4. Did you see a new season of The Amazing Race started?

5. I found the best new lipstick for fall. It’s under $6.00 with over 27,000 reviews and it CHANGES color with whatever lipstick pencil you add to it. You can see it here.

6. Westleigh is home for fall break and we are spending the best mom/daughter weekend ever.

And now?
