Something to Eat

Okay, I'm gonna be honest here, I'm actually not a huge fan of Thanksgiving food. There's a lot casseroley dishes that are really heavy and I tend to like my food a little more simple and light. This apple cranberry salad from Creme de la Crumb looks amazing and would make a really nice, fresh side for Thanksgiving dinner. My sister mentioned maybe making something like this today for a Thanksgiving side, and now I can't stop thinking about it! 

Something to Read

I follow Anne Sage on Instagram. (You can check out her lovely feed here.) She just came out with a new book that I'm itching to read. Let's just say my Christmas list this year is going to be composed of books. You can purchase Anne's book here.

Something to Watch

I know I'm behind. Like waaaaayyy behind, but I've been spending the week with my nieces who are all seven and under, and I finally got to watch Frozen for the first time. I actually loved it! The beautiful choir music in the film took me back to my college days when I used to sing in a choir and the magic of that, the imagery was beautiful, and there were actually some really good life lessons portrayed. I love that the world wasn't saved by the kiss of a handsome boy, although that never hurts ;) You can take a Play Buzz quiz here to see what Frozen character you are (why are these quizzes so addicting?) Apparently I'm Elsa. According to this quiz I am elegant and graceful, reserved, and very complex. Reserved and complex, yes. But the elegant and graceful part, apparently this quiz hasn't met me yet.

Something to Make

I love this idea for a coffee table out of crates from Anything & Everything blog. The stain she chose is so pretty and I love that you can store books and magazines in it! You can read her tutorial here.

Someone to Follow

 I love following Claire Brody through Instagram. Not only is she a fellow Texan, she has an incredible style. I love reading her blog. She sounds like one of the nicest people ever! You can check out her blog here, and visit her Instagram here. This picture is from one of the rooms she just redid for the One Room Challenge. I am loving the color choices. You can see the entire room tour here.
