Happy Friday 11/23/18 + Thanks


Happy Friday! How was your Thanksgiving? We celebrated the holiday at my sister's house this year and it was filling, fun, and just as crazy as you might expect with 11 young people running around.

My sister has a beautiful old home in the hills surrounding Portland (Oregon...not Maine ;) ). We decorated the table with flowers and appetizers, which really could have been a full meal, but you know...Thanksgiving ;) And then we pulled out the china and ate for real. Turkey and stuffing and salads and mashed potatoes and pumpkin pie. All my favs. And today we're settling in for football, leftovers, and a little bit of shopping.

Speaking of shopping, I've rounded up some of the best black friday deals at the bottom of this post (let me know if you have others and I'll add them to the list!).

Sometimes I get a little overwhelmed by all the inspiration out there, but this home tour really brought me back. It's exactly what I want our Farmhouse to feel like.

This is a couple years old now, but amazing none the less. Ballet meets hip hop meets art.

Will one of you buy this $99,000 house. I want to come visit!

Moving away from consumerism is hard. Especially with kids. I love @sommersruthie's post about it.
