Yet another item off my checklist–done! One of my bff's had a baby on Friday, a little girl named Quinn! (I knew it would be a girl!) I went to the hospital to meet her yesterday and she became the first baby I've ever held!

I admit, I was terrified, but she was a doll. I think we're going to be spending a lot more time together.

Happy Pics from Pinterest

Happy Turkey Day, ya'll. I'll be spending the weekend sewing and nerding out on projects around the house (and holding my bff's baby! that lil pumpkin will be born on Friday!!).

In the meantime I thought I'd leave you with some happy pics for the weekend.

Lana Del Rey : Video Games

Heard this song while driving home tonight. It was super haunting with the sun safely tucked under the horizon and the crispy winter air building an icy film on the car windows... *sigh* but so lovely.

FNL Music

I may have mention this before, but I am a HUGE sucker for TV on DVD (probably partially due to the fact that I don't have cable or even an antenna). My latest obsession, Friday Night Lights. It's SO GOOD! Combine that with my discovery of 8tacks and wa-la! I found a playlist of music from FNL. It's good. Real good. Give'r a listen and I'm sure you'll agree!

Ely Kim

I found out about this while watching Kate Bingamin Burt's Creative Mornings talk over on Swiss Miss (which you should also watch, she's just quirky and fun).

Rock out Ely, rock out.

Joggers and Dead Bodies

I don't know if you've ever watched any of Natalie's videos, but they always put a smile on my face. Aaand I'm totally jealous of her accent.

Do you ever laugh at inappropriate times? ...I do.... ALL. THE. TIME. And it always makes me think of this scene in Freaks and Geeks.


Mama's Sauce

I know, I shouldn't post about the competition, but there's just something so lovely about this.


Lovvvve these Alice in Wonderland illustrations by Leonard Wiesgard I found over on Brain Pickings.

Self Improvement

Great article over on the 99% today, all about "grit," called The Future of Self-Improvement. One quote that really stood out for me:

"If it was ever in question, we can now rest assured that dogged hard work is the cornerstone of remarkable achievement." -Jocelyn K. Glei
