Weekend + Links

cozy on the boardwalk
We’re into the first few days of November and I have a feeling the next two months are going to fly by. I love this time of year and all the hustle and bustle that surrounds the holidays. Brian and I are hosting Thanksgiving at our house for the first time and I’ve already started brainstorming decorations, our menu and when my cousins and I should binge watch Gilmore Girls. We have so much leftover Halloween candy that needs to leave our house before we eat it all. I’m dropping off most of it tomorrow for Operation Gratitude (ATL residents– you can also drop off for the cause here) and highly recommend donating any extra candy that you may have too! Our weekend ahead includes one of my best friend’s son’s 1st birthday party and a baby shower for another close friend. Hope yours is a wonderful one!

    I was surprised about Class Pass…they’re so expensive, I guess I could never get past that! I pay around that for my gym, but I can go every single day, all day. I bet they’re getting a lot of cancellations! those wedge booties are really really cute. happy friday dear!

    I was really surprised to hear that Classpass was canceling the unlimited membership, as that’s going to make for a lot of very upset clients. How exciting that you’re hosting Thanksgiving this year, my favorite meal of the year! Happy Friday <3

    At the top of my to do list for Thanksgiving is binge watch Gilmore Girls. I cannot wait! I’ve always had a hard time with class pass because I live in an area that is so spread out! Since you can only go to each studio a certain number of times I would run out of my passes for the closer studios and then still end up paying for my regular gym membership too. Good luck hosting and have a great weekend! 🙂

    I love that sweater and that sweater dress!!! I agree with Amanda too about your Thanksgiving table. I’m sure that everything will be classy, elegant, and beautiful just like you! 🙂 Have a wonderful weekend!
