I imagine that most of you are already headed over the river and through the woods, but for anyone checking their Feedly over the holiday, I have some fun and (mostly) seasonal links for you…

Tomorrow we’re flying to Wisconsin to spend Thanksgiving week with Ryan’s family – fingers crossed the plane ride with Caroline goes as smoothly as possible! Any tips for flying with a 6 month old? I’m also hoping to contribute a pie to Thanksgiving dinner, something seasonal but not obvious, but the truth is that I’m not much of a pie baker. I’m thinking maybe a chocolate pecan pie or this butterscotch pie, but I’m open to suggestions, so please share!

Caroline has decided that getting more than three hours of sleep in a row isn’t her thing, so Ryan and I are a little sleep deprived these days… which might explain why I’ve started this sentence seventeen times, only to delete it, start over, and still end up with something bearing no resemblance to the English language. So instead of trying to string words together in a coherent way, I’m just going to get out of the way and share some awesome links…

Did you have a fun Halloween? We dressed Caroline up as a little duck (if you click through you’ll see me in my ninja outfit/blogger uniform) and showed her off to the neighbors – she was a really good sport about it! This weekend we’re going to a Diwali party, and I’m also hoping to do a little baking. What are you up to?

I have big dreams about making some changes to our living room, and Les Indiennes has me drooling over their prints.

Halloween is just around the corner! My mom made all of my Halloween costumes when I was a kid, and she’s generously offered (okay, I may have badgered her a little) to make Caroline’s first Halloween costume. You’d think we would have figured this out already, but we’re still trying to decide what to dress her as. Also, I’m not exactly sure where you’re supposed to take a 5 month old on Halloween…
