Am I the only one ready for the weekend? Or ready for Thanksgiving? Or still in disbelief that Thanksgiving is less than a week away? Time flies, I tell ya. Time flies.

But I digress. The point of this post is to share the bits and pieces from my week--one photo, little lessons, and lots of lovely links--so let me get back on track. Enjoy, friends!

A lovely, lovely, lovely post. And one that's too good to scroll past!

Some inspirational words to print and hang on your wall.

And some wise, wise blogging advice (some written by yours truly!).

I'm not sure if you're a SheReadsTruth-er (just made that one up, by the way), but I was re-reading some of my old prayers and notes from SheReadsTruth earlier this week and was completely amazed at how each devotional matched up with each prayer written down in the journal. If that's not a sign that SheReadsTruth is amazing, I don't know what is.

Hey you, you're really loved. You know that?

It's never too early for some cute Christmas gift tag printables, right?

I'll take that as a no, because I've got another set of free Christmas gift tags I want to share with you, too!

The perfect holiday nails.

And the perfect fall blog post.

I'm also liking this nail color, too.

This was the perfect reminder for me.

And this is the perfect phone wallpaper for the holiday season.

The prettiest pinecones ever.

I'm adding all of these amazing gifts to my Christmas wishlist now.

So I don't know about you, but I'm excited about Hunger Games + Catching Fire. Please tell me I'm not the only one! I won't get a chance to see it for awhile, but that doesn't mean I won't live vicariously through you if you do (not that I'm calling for spoilers, though!). And it also means that I'll be re-watching the first movie in the very near future, too.

Coconut pumpkin pie? Yes, please.

Well, these are pretty cool (and pretty easy to make, too!).

Now this is the best Thanksgiving bunting ever.

You're going to want to download these lovely wallpapers for the holiday season.

And um, this is THE sweetest thing ever. Puppies + little kids + naps? You've got to check this one out.

Have a great one, friends! And may the odds be ever in your favor.


  1. I feel very sad to say that I completely forgot that Catching Fire was coming out this weekend. That small thing showed me how busy/stressed we already are with upcoming travel for Thanksgiving/Christmas, because I'm a weirdo and had it marked on my calendar. Ha! I have fingers crossed to see it this weekend sometime... probably not. Eesh.

    1. With work, I honestly have not had time to keep up with all the hype, either. It's a little sad, to tell you the truth--especially since I looove the series so much. I hope you get to see it soon! To be honest, you'll probably end up seeing it before I do! :)

  2. OH MY GOSH. i am going to see catching fire tomorrow and i can't wait!

    also, all those christmas backgrounds!!! i just downloaded the majority of them. haha!

    1. Gah, I'm so jealous that you're seeing it (or have seen it by now? time zones mess me up, to tell you the truth!). :) Anyway, you'll have to tell me how much you like it--but not too much!

      And those Christmas backgrounds are awesome, right? I saw them on Pinterest and downloaded almost all of them, too!

  3. I really want to see the hunger games movies, I've read the books. Are the movies as good?
    love those Christmas backgrounds!
    that first post, it totally spoke to my heart! Just what i needed to hear! And the second one too!
    holiday nails---love!
    love she reads truth--the thankfulness devo's right now are totally filling me up! so good!
    coconut pumpkin pie--looks so good! I may have to try to make that :)

    1. You should! I loved the books and thought the movie was amazing (although I honestly can't remember all that much about the movie except that part--I really need to see it again!). :)

      And I love the Garland of Grace post, too! It was perfect and was exactly what I needed to read, too!

    2. oh well maybe i will have to watch the first one.
      me too. it was so good!

  4. I am super excited about Catching Fire too! :) So many good things I can't even pick which is my favorite! Maybe the nails? The printables? Most definitely the Christmas tags... too many to choose!

    1. Hooray for another Hunger Games fan! Have you seen it yet? I don't think I'll get to see it anytime soon, but I'm super excited about it nonetheless. :)

  5. I love all the iPhone wallpapers and desktop wallpapers that you pass along. Which means that about every Friday, I change my background to something new! Can't wait to add a new one for December! :)

    Also, I'm going to see Catching Fire this weekend and I am sooo beyond excited! :)

    1. Haha, that sounds like a plan! And it kind of feels like the pressure's on now for me to find some more wallpaper downloads, eh? :)

      And please tell me if you like it! I'm probably not going to see it for awhile but I'd love to hear what you think of it!!

  6. I went on a hot date with my husband to see Catching Fire the opening night! you will LOVE IT!

    1. Um, that sounds like a hot (and fun!) date to me! :) It sounds like you loved it so I know I will, too. Hunger Games is one of the few book/movie series that I like, so I'm super excited to see it!!
