Weekend Reading: November 13, 2010

rolling down the hill in a GBOP (Great Big Outdoor Playball)

We’re enjoying the warmer weather this week and the chance to spend hours outside before winter officially hits, but we’re also looking forward to the holidays! We’re started Christmas shopping, decorating (shh…) and planning our family get togethers, and we’re looking forward to it all. Hopefully this week I can finish my gift lists and shopping lists and finish designing my Christmas cards because being ahead always makes it easier to enjoy all the fun!

Have you downloaded your FREE Thanksgiving Your Way ebook and printable planner?

Here are some of my favorite posts from that batch this week. As always, check out what I’m reading to see the other posts that make me stop and think.
