Sorry friends, I've been MIA lately. I've been off doing exciting things and cannot wait to share some great projects! But, in the mean time, I'm VERY excited for a break with the family!

So, before I hit the road I wanted to share this week's Top 10 items that have caught my eye, and also make this post more about Thanksgiving. I HAVE to share this youtube video. Have y'all seen it?

I discovered Julie through Instagram of course! I could not get enough of her beautiful interior images and her cute sense of style.

I swear y'all the One Room Challenge Reveal gods were against me.

But, I made it, phew! If you're just seeing this, you can look at back here. My goal in the end

I'm behind again this week. But, I wanted to put together some eye candy to get us through Tuesday because in an about an hour or less my boys will be up and they're off from school.
