Odds & Ends

Pin It

1. 40 Maps That Will Help You Make Sense of the World. I'm not a map-lover by any means, but a lot of these were so interesting!

2. I couldn't resist the Nordstrom half-yearly sale a few weeks ago and bought this fleece wrap cardigan (in the bright pink, of course!). I absolutely love it...it's insanely soft and cozy but still looks polished, even if it feels like you're wearing pajamas. Because of the cut, I can wear it now with my giant preggo belly, but will also be great postpartum (note-it's not a maternity sweater!).

3. Over the years, coffee has slowly grown on me. I don't know that I'll ever be one to drink it black, but trashed up with cream and sugar?! Count me in! Bailey's is actually my "creamer" of choice, but since that's off the table for a few more months, I was pumped when my mom introduced me to this So Delicious Coconut Milk creamer. I've got a carton in the refrigerator at work and find myself going for a cup of mediocre-at-best work coffee, simply so I can add this deliciousness to it!

4. Heading to a Christmas party this weekend? Bring the host some cinnamon sugar pretzels on a pretty dish (they take just minutes to throw together for the oven) or maybe some chocolate peanut butter dipped pretzels decorated with holiday sprinkles....you know everyone else will be bringing cookies, so go for something different! (and if you really want to bring cookies...here are a few of our favorites!)
