The last 36 hours I have been a tornado of productivity and it feels great! The halls are 98% decked for Christmas (making one more Michael’s run today… so many deals!), I’m just about caught up on freelance work, I made a dent in a 700+ page book for book club, raked the yard (again), shopped for Thanksgiving, conquered a warehouse sale, worked out and even managed to tidy up a bit along the way. I wish I could kick up my heels and coast for the rest of the day but I’ve got to ride this wave while I can. Look out library, errands, patio project final touches and basement storage, you’re on my list. Enjoy these links while I run around like the crazy person I am!
The biggest event on my list this weekend is a Christmas Warehouse Sale and I am readyyyyy! I hate to admit it but the Ericksons are going faux with their tree this year. After an unfortunate leaking tree stand on the hardwood floor situation last year, drastic measures must be taken. I’m sure I’ll find some other treasures along the way and blast the Mariah Carey Christmas album on my way both to and from the sale. I may even bust out the only piece of red clothing I own! Clearly, I’m getting in the spirit. Have a great weekend, friends!

I’m a little too pasty for the color palette above but I’m kinda digging it as the colder temps insist on staying.

Swap that Spring-y dress for some serious fleece pajamas (just keepin’ it real) and the photo above is my ideal Monday night!

Lately, I’ve been in one of two modes: either complaining about the cold and snow or fighting the urge to put up Christmas decorations. It’s been a struggle. Thankfully the sunshine this weekend slowed my roll a bit and I was in neither of the two modes above! Instead, the Red Head and I were outside putting finishing touches on the patio (more to come this Spring, of course). The project has been quite the labor of love and I cannot wait to have some happy hours there next summer. While I got sweep a little more sand into the patio seams, enjoy these links from around the web:
I think the image above sums up ideal weekend plans, no? Let’s see if we can make it happen, people!

While the Red Head and I were in Morocco a couple weeks ago we called Casablanca ‘home’ during our stay. To be honest, it ended up not being the favorite city we visited but it was wonderful to have the cooler temps, an ocean-side hotel and countless restaurants all within blocks every single day. Plus, with Petit Taxis readily available (and cheap!) we felt like the whole city was at our fingertips.
Below are a few snaps from around the city! Highlights include the Hassan II mosque, reading Game of Thrones by candlelight (a nightly occurrence), breathtaking tilework at every turn, fresh fruits and juices at every corner and this amazing dinner spot (not pictured). Next up: Marrakech!
