This week’s learned, links, and thankfulness…

Ugh! We’ve hit a couple bumps in the construction in our front yard and we’re trying not to worry (cause does worry really do anything?!) and trust (and thank) God for the trial. It’s not a bad problem to have, but does get a little frustrating when you aren’t seeing eye to eye with the contractor.

Thankful Thanksgiving break starts now! WOOT!

Okay, so Aunt Flo came early and I think I’m a cup believer. Will give my review on it on another post. Also, I love reading all your comments regarding the cup and your cultural norms of shoes in the house. I miss reading your comments (I know most people no longer really comment on blogs these days) and I love how it felt like a discussion here (I want to do more of that). I plan to respond to the discussion in the posts in the next couple of days. It’s been so busy this week that I felt like Ben and I had to both schedule time just to breathe because we’ve been go, go, go.

Any orders placed in the WOVENFOLK main shop and etsy between 11/18-11/26 will be shipped out 11/27.

These thin oat cookies look delicious.

Do you have your eye on anything on Black Friday? The girls have wanted SONOS speakers (they love listening to music at home), so we are thinking about it as a community gift for them (if we find a good deal). We were also considering Chromecast Audio, which seems to be really cool and is only $35, but it doesn’t play iTunes, which is where all our music is stored.

Cute denim dress from Ms. Tips. Looks cute layered with a sweater under during the colder months.

“Suffering is like scorching heat to the soul.” from this Desiring God article. A rebuke and encouragement to suffer well.

We are headed to Sedona, AZ for Thanksgiving week! Anyone have recommendations for things to do, see, and eat there (or neighboring cities)?

This geometric building block set  and make a face puzzle looks really cool. The toys that get played with the most at our house are the ones they can build things with.

If you’re stateside, happy pre-Thanksgiving weekend prepping! Hope everyone has a chill weekend!

    Try Elote in Sedona for dinner. Drive up Oak Creek for the views. Indian Gardens does a great array of sandwiches for lunch. Flagstaff is amazing, but I call it home so I am a bit biased 🙂

      We went to Flagstaff and had dinner at Criollo! Such a cute little city! We had plans to go to Elote the first night we arrived, but we hit bad traffic and never made it. Wahh! I heard good things about that place from another friend.

    Visit the south side of the Grand Canyon if you have time and the girls haven’t seen it! Also – not a specific – but just looking at the stars in Arizona is amazing too, since there’s so much less light pollution. Hope you all have a great trip! 🙂

  • I’ve been a cup ( user for over two years now. Same cup the whole time. I am a big believer in it. hehe.
    Have a fun time and have a happy Thanksgiving.
