happy weekend!

This was a busy week over here. A bunch of events and work things, and whoa to Thursday’s SNOW! I went up to Bedford last night for a friend’s party, take the train home today and my parents are back in town tonight. They’ve been here a lot (to see the new baby) which has been nice. I hope you guys have a great weekend and are staying warm and toasty.

And be sure to check out our holiday page if you haven’t already. Lots of fun things happening over there, and it’s nice to have everything in one place! All things holiday style, gift guides, and recipe ideas!! In the meantime, enjoy this week’s links!
