happy november!

you know what that means?  so many little things that make me happy :)

so like any good blogger friend, i must share them with you!

1 - those gorgeous little red cups of starbucks holiday coffee have returned!!  peppermint mocha, here i come.  and as i was discussing with my pal erin over at sparkle & hay (check out her wedding sneak peaks!), we are both excited for those pretty red holiday cups too.  and have you seen this yet?  salted caramel hot chocolate has just arrived.  sweet and salty?  wow.  i cannot wait to check it out.  (disclaimer - don't read the nutrition facts or it might ruin the holiday spirit you're feeling, haha)

2. dark nails.  just got back from the nail salon and got my first "fall" manicure of the year.  i went with O.P.I. "nevermore" which is a dark purple with a tiny bit of "glitter".  can't go wrong there (until you dig in your purse for your keys and scratch a nail haha)

3. it's the beginning of the holiday season!  baking cookies, thanksgiving, holiday decorating, holiday music... i get to see my family and spend time with loved ones.  and there's just that feeling in the air.  love it!!

4. onslaught of pretty things - pretty holiday weddings, gorgeous winter bouquets, details, details, details!!

  8. I need to stay away from the peppermint mochas, or I won't be able to fit in my wedding dress. I also just recently realized that once spring comes around, I'll be married!

    My aunt got married in December, said the church was already decorated so she saved money there. haha :)

  11. Peppermint Mocha is my favorite. I wait for it every year, I try to get through Thanksgiving before I get one but that doesn't usually work out. I have been baking up a storm. I'm going to have to send cookies to all my blog friends the way this is going!

  12. I love everything about this post...and a friend on facebook posted that holiday cups are in at Starbucks!


    It's in the mid 40's here today, so I am certainly feeling the holiday spirit!

  13. 1)I saw an ad for that salted caramel thing & totally thought of you. There was a recipe I saw online for cupcakes too, I'll try to find it.

    2) LOVE those paperflowers in the 1st pic. I've seen them on a couple other blogs this week and I'm in awe of them.

    3)I am BEYOND PSYCHED to start making Christmas cookies - I might have to start with Thanksgiving. ;)

    4) Glad you're coming back East for the holidays. No offense to our West-coast blog friends, but Christmas-time just isn't right when it's 75 & you're wearing flip flops.

  16. We had SNOW in Toronto on Hallowe'en. I couldn't believe it. It melted as soon as it touched the ground, but still: our flip flop season up here is O-V-E-R.

  17. I'm excited for an eggnog/chai latte, FIANLLY. It's super hard to wait all year for them!

    Also, I freaking LOVE the balsa wood flowers. I really wanted them for our wedding.

    And? It's finally time for Santa Coke and mint M&Ms! YES!
