Hard to believe a week in December is already gone! Are you recovering from Thanksgiving okay? I won’t lie, I probably need to take it easy for the next few weeks until Christmas…especially since we unabashedly continued to eat leftovers in the early part of this week! This weekend will be pretty relaxed, with a double date tonight, brunch tomorrow, and a much needed Skype catch-up with a West Coast friend on Sunday. The weather in NY has been so weird this week (yesterday the high was over 60!) and I’m sure I’ll regret saying this at some point, but all I want is for it to be cold with a fine layer of snow on the ground. Whatever the weather where you are, here are some links to cozy up with this weekend:

+ Adding this to my wishlist of coffee table books.

+ Speaking of coffee table books, One King’s Lane is having a sale on a bunch of ’em…check it out!

+ I found this post on where freelancers spend their time to be spot on.

+ I shared some more fave gift picks over on Sweet & Spark. “Gift picks”…slash things that in reality *I* just want.

+ Caved during Cyber Monday and ordered this tray and this little candle snuffer. But I guess that’s not so terrible!

+ Glad to see someone else had a similar bra revelation as I did a while back!

+ This is totally random, but this week in French class we started talking about Transatlantic (or “Mid-Atlantic”) accents, and it reminded me of this article from forever ago. Interesting if you’ve ever wondered why 1930s and 1940s accents sound so funny.

+ J.Crew is my fave this time of year…if only because they really keep the deals comin’! They’ve extended their 30% off sale through the weekend on all these items. I’m kind of digging this buffalo check pea coat (so lumberjack chic) and I would love it if these cute playing cards ended up in my stocking (cough cough hint, Joe).

+ Loved these tips for hosting house guests (this will come in handy if you’re playing host in a few weeks)!

+ I’m still recovering from the calorie fest last week, and bookmarked this idea for a simple, seasonal, healthful salad. Yum!

+ Have you seen Catching Fire yet? I thought this background interview on the costume design was so cool! I have yet to see the movie…along with Gravity and about 10 others (oops).

Have a great weekend, everyone!!

    I have a Mid Atlantic English accent. Born in Canada, but raised in Europe we spoke a much more ‘neutral’ English at home. Now back in Canada, people just can’t quite place where I’m from ;)

    Catching Fire was so dark and well acted! IMO Stanley Tucci, Elizabeth Bank and Woody Harrelson stole the show.

    Also, I already have a coffee table addiction. I see this will now continue!
