Friday Faves – November 8, 2013

So many favorite things from this week!! Enjoy! Hope you have a great weekend!

      1. I told my kids I ate all their halloween candy – Jimmy Kimmel does this every year, and it makes me laugh every time. I don’t understand why it’s such an earth-shattering experience, but then again, I never really went trick-or-treating.
      2. Bread Bowls! – but not just any bread bowls, A Beautiful Mess shows us how to make pretzel bread bowls. Sounds like a great idea! maybe better than Panera’s! photo 1182013breadbowl_zpsc8f91077.jpg
      3. The Tory Burch Gift Guide – This may sound slightly biased, but the Tory Burch Gift Guide is beautiful. I love the way everything is categorized by “pretty” “cozy” “shimmery.” The product is also lovely, so please browse and enjoy. photo 1182013giftguide_zpsc41d6c77.png
      4. “Marriage Isn’t For You” – Last but not least, I’m so glad this blog post basically went viral this week and got freshly pressed. If you’re considering getting married, you should be saying this: “I realized that I wanted to make her happy; to see her smile every day, to make her laugh every day. I wanted to be a part of her family, and my family wanted her to be a part of ours.”Maybe you’re reconsidering your current marriage: is it because you’re seeking your own happiness? “No, a true marriage (and true love) is never about you. It’s about the person you love—their wants, their needs, their hopes, and their dreams. Selfishness demands, ‘What’s in it for me?’, while Love asks, ‘What can I give?'”

        If the person you love is happy, you will be happy.
