Five things

Tom Waits Pandora station
Something about his voice (and like-sounded crooners) gets me in the Halloween spirit.  (And I mean that in the best possible way.)  Raspy, yet scary, no?

In fact, one critic accurately described his voice as follows:

"like it was soaked in a vat of bourbon,
left hanging in the smokehouse for a few months
and then taken outside and run over with a car."

Dresses from Free People Clothing Boutique
Namely this one in particular...

Love EVERYTHING about it for fall!
The deep aubergine color, sleeves, edgy lace...
paired with messy hair, fur and/or boots?!  Get outta here, you sexy thang.

Detox water
I keep telling everyone else they should drink a glass of lemon water before their morning coffee to flush out toxins.  I think I best take my own advice and make a vat of this for my early a.m.'s...


Personalized Laundry Bins
Maybe it's the anal-ness of me, but I think this is one of the best ideas ever...
Every family member gets a basket with their clean, folded laundry that can be removed, taken to their rooms, and put away.  So clever!

Six tips for raising grateful children
The importance of being sincerely thankful and writing thank you notes

I hope I can do the same for my kids!
I also love the notion of simplicity...
