Friday Links


Happy, happy Friday!  We've got a weekend full of holiday fun ahead of us, along with some seriously warm weather for December in Michigan.  60 degrees?  I'll take it.  Other than spending lots of time outside (lucky Brady may get a trip to the dog park!), a friend and I are going to a Christmas craft show and then our neighbors are coming over for a holiday dinner on Saturday night.  Hoping to squeeze in a sleepover in front of the fireplace, too :)  My fave. 

A few things from around the web that have caught my eye lately...

+ The guys in my life are by far the hardest to shop for, but Zelle put together an awesome list of gifts for him that you have to check out.  And please tell me I'm not the only one still shopping?

+ Brown butter scallops with parmesan risotto... my mouth is watering.  I can't wait to have an at home date night and cook this up soon!

+ A round up of my all time top favorite Christmas movies - what's yours?

+ I popped into Target this week for a new planner (and $100 worth of other stuff, of course) and picked up this pretty.  I love the Sugar Paper planners - adorable and the best prices.

+ How unbelievably comfortable do these jogger pants look?  I would l-i-v-e in them.

+ 10 holiday hashtags to use on Instagram.  #hashtag

Ps. I'm looking for a new blog designer... time to spruce this place up again.  Any recommendations?
And with that, have a great weekend!! xoxo

  5. Hey, let me know what blog designer you go with - I've been wanting to find one myself.

    I thought of you when I was thumbing through those planners at Target last weekend - they are all so cute - & inexpensive! If I hadn't won an Erin Condren, I'd totally be picking up one of those.

    OK - off to look at the guy's shopping ideas - they are the HARDEST to buy for!

  16. Go on Creative Markets and look for blogger templates there. Super affordable and so many options :-) Those joggers look amazingly soft and comfy!

  21. I love the Target Sugar Paper planners! I already got one through MayDesigns this year, or I would have purchased one the other day (though I almost did anyway! Haha).

  22. I love The Santa Clause as my favorite Christmas movie. It's so funny. And I love your design. What are you thinking of going to? Another color scheme? Or just a different header, etc?

    Those jogger pants look so comfy! I got some from Old Navy, and literally I wore them non stop when I was sick at home, that's like 6 days straight.

  26. That's super warm for this time of year. I am in MT and we have been experiencing mid-50s; it's insane! Have a great weekend, Katie!

  27. Gotta love those Sugar Paper planners! Sounds like you have a fun weekend ahead, enjoy that nice weather!

  28. The weather here is insane, right? Sunday is supposed to be a record breaker!!!
    I got my design off Etsy. I can't remember exactly how much it was anymore but I want to say it was $15. It was pre-designed but you can make your own tweaks to it once it's installed... it was super easy!

  29. I loveeeee Sugar Paper products! They are seriously the best!

  30. I love Sugar Paper! And I just got my blog redesigned about 3 months ago but I'm just not feeling it! Hope you had a wonderful weekend!

  31. I'm considering a new redesign too. I had a couple of things updated hoping that would solve my issues, but I'm still not quite into it. Please let me know if you find one! And I love Sugar Paper! xo, Champagne&Suburbs
