With Thanksgiving behind us, we now have the two biggest events of the year in our household that both happen to be right around the corner: Halloween and Xavier's Birthday (respectively) just a few days apart. These are arguably the most import events in Xavier's life right now. Those that know us well, know that you can roll in on any given day, say July 27th, and our house will have every. single. halloween. costume/decoration/treat. pulled out and spread across the entire place. I guess you could say we (are forced to) take Halloween rather seriously. Admittedly, I am entirely OK with this and Xavier holds me very accountable to the success of these events **note beads of sweat have begun to form on my brow**. This weekend is entirely devoted to costume prep and building then planning little Mister's bowling/halloween costume birthday party. Yes, you read that correctly bowling party where everyone gets to sport their costumes one more time! Pretty cute, non? But for now *sigh* here are a few gems from around the inter-web.
I read Anjelica Huston's memoir "Watch Me" this past spring while on vacation in Mexico. I don't recall sharing how amazing I thought it was, this is a perfect snuggle up read with a great glass of pinot noir.

I came across this article on a friend's Facebook page and found it completely fascinating. While Xavier is generally always up to trying new foods, it seriously got me reflecting on whether or not kids are given enough time to eat at school?
The boots I cannot live without from October through March. And yes, the sizing chart is worth paying attention to.
Have you got Jays fever? This article is completely fascinating.
