This week I…

+ was happy to be guest posting over on Brighton’s blog about things that have been ‘brightoning’ my day. Such a cute feature she has going — be sure to check it out!

+ am a little exhausted from the pup, I won’t lie. We had amazing days and rough days. It can be such a roller coaster! New parent-ness still has yet to wear off.

+ found the most gorgeous dress that I WISH I could wear on New Years Eve. However, I think we’re going to do a low key thing in Napa, so I might just have to dream!

+ am dying to see the new Vogue documentary on HBO. Have you heard about this? Did anyone see it last night?

+ will hopefully be making some Christmas cookies this Sunday afternoon. What’s your favorite recipe?

LINK OF THE WEEK: Joe sent me The Atlantic’s three-part year in photos, so you can thank him for this one. I love looking at stuff like this. I always think it’s so fun to look back at the year and be like “Oh YEAH! Wow, that all happened THIS year?” and also, “The world is a pretty beautiful/messed up/incredible/scary/wonderful place.” Enjoy all these photos over your coffee this morning, or over the weekend!

    The Kate issue is getting even worse, can it be true that the nurse is now dead? http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/world/uk-hospital-receptionist-who-took-kate-crank-call-found-dead/article6078780/

    the vogue doc was fun! it was so interesting to hear the stories of past fashion editors… i’m newly obsessed with polly mellon (she wore a juicy sweat suit for her interview) who is probably almost 90!

    I hope that you’re having a great Sunday, and that you & your puppy get more & more into a routine every day!

    I love that dress – imagine twirling in it?! Let’s get real though – I would probably get it caught on every door handle I walked past :)
