This kid... I'm telling you. He would LIVE outside if he could. Even on the coldest of days, which fortunately have been few and far between, he'll go stand by the front door trying his hardest to open it as he says over and over again, "At-side! At-side!" How can I resist? So I say, "Radcliff, let's get your socks and shoes on first!" He'll run and bring them to me and say, "Docks, docks", as I put his sockies on them big old feet, and then, "Sooooes, soooooes", as I put his shoes on. The second I open the door, he's gone. He has this new little walk where he flings his hands in the air and skips as he does it. He is so terribly pleased with this new adorable walk of his and so am I! He totally cracks his own self up with it. He can walk and walk and walk right by my side for the longest time! The other day I think we walked five or six blocks together. It's fun just talking with him as we walk... "Trees Radcliff, birds!" "Ohhh, cooool!", he'll say! "Mhhh, this flower smells good Rad"... Que him skipping over and giving that pretty flower a good old loooooong sniff and exclaiming, "Mhhhhh!" His fat finger darting towards the sky screaming, "Paaaaaane!" (plane), or staying at our neighbors house for an embarrassingly long time shrieking at their motorcycle, "Mo-er-cycle. Brooom, broooom!" I love talking to him. It's funny... How this has happened!? I can't believe how fast my little man is growing up and how smart and sweet he is. I feel so lucky that he's mine.

All of these beautiful table displays make me so excited for Thanksgiving tomorrow! I've been a little scared of how Thanksgiving will be different this year without a special coma-inducing something... GLUTEN. But I have been scouring the internet for gluten-free pies and this one looks delightful. I'll make it and bring it with me wherever I go that day and I'll somehow get through it! The rolls on the other hand? Well that's just plain rude! ;) BUT, I'll be one of the few ones that's not lethargically pulling myself off the couch. So it's all good, I guess!
This time of year, I can't help but think of all of the children who are faced with hunger while we are stuffing our faces with unlimited portions of food and worried about how we're going to decorate our tables... Guilty right here. It just isn't fair. I hope everyone can take time tomorrow to reflect on all of the good in their lives, even if you're in a time in your life where it's hard to see it!
I am so thankful for such a fun, thoughtful, dedicated, and pleasant husband and father Wren is and for such an inquisitive, happy, sensitive, and smart little boy Radcliff is. I would consider myself one of the luckiest with just those two people in my life. But then add in all of the other wonderful people in my family, my dear friends, and all of the dumb little things that are so important to me... My bed, hot baths, chocolate milk, a running car, tweezers, heaters, living five seconds from Whole Foods, and most importantly, being able to afford food for my family. I have so much to be thankful for!

Always have my little friend trying to "help" out...
About a month ago, I was contacted by Missiko to see if I would be interested in testing out their HANAair Professional Hair Dryer, by HANA. I'll be honest... At first, even as a girl who went to beauty school, I wondered how a professional hair dryer could really be that much better than your basic blow dryer from the grocery store. They both just blow air, right? But I was still excited to give it a whirl! It came packaged at cute as it could be. There were little boxes with various things in them such as nail files, bottles of hand sanitizer, an eyelash curler, little pink bags, a hair straightener travel bag, and mini pink roses. I knew this wasn't going to be your typical blow dryer, and let me tell you what... After using it for a couple weeks now, it truly is incredible! I cannot believe how soft it makes my hair. I've always had curly hair that frizzes up lots when I round brush it. It still frizzes a bit, but I could actually leave the house now before straightening it after using the HANAair blow dryer. I seriously would recommend this blow dryer to anyone looking for a high quality one! Thank you HANAair! You've made my blow drying experience that much easier every morning. Who am I kidding? I don't wash my hair every morning. But you catch my drift right? It's the best hair dryer ever. Go buy it!
