happy things to end the week with.

♥ finding the perfect sweater with elbow patches to autumn-ize any dress or jean ensemble 

♥ maverick's smile

♥ the most exciting news that my brother Marco and his girlfriend Christina are expecting!!! not only am I going to be an auntie to two beautiful babies (my older sister and her husband are also having a baby) but this is the first time my brother will be a daddy. We are thrilled! me and twinkie ordered this gorgeous porcelain necklace for the sweet mom-to-be. 

♥ need this tea towel (i think i would frame it rather). need to keep living this tea towel.

♥ speaking of books, i won this one in dorothy's giveaway and i can't wait to read it. i'm in love with her idea -- she's doing a series of giveaways of her favorite titles. brilliant! i believe there's no better gift than a book you love.

♥ letters from edward (my bff inVA) are my favorite but his last one especially so-- knowing how much i miss fall in Virginia, he enclosed these for me.


Happy Friday Lovies!!! what happy things are you ending the week with?

+please leave a link below if you do post-- i'd love to share in your happiness xo

i love elbow patches!! :) that's so fun. i have been wanting to find a really good, engrossing book. i haven't read the hunger games yet, so i'm thinking i need to go pick that up, but i'm loving the idea of having a book to read when the nights get cooler.

I love that your friend sent you some autumn leaves. Maybe I'll send you some from here too. A Canadian maple leaf, perhaps?

I know how you love being an auntie, so congratulations on the new babies-to-be!

My list is here: http://pughs-news.blogspot.com/2011/10/happy-things.html

Okay. When I find out HUGE NEWS (Marco & Christina expecting?!?!) on your blog, that's when we know we are WAY OVERDUE for a phone talk! I can't believe it! I love any expansion of the Lechuga family--the world needs more of you. Yay!!!

I love the letter from Virginia. I was actually thinking of asking my mom to send me some fall leaves from home! I do so miss Virginia's range in colors, though I love the gold aspens here.

And YAY!!! for all the babies!!! Marco and Christina must be so delighted. From everything I know of them - do to you and Marz' glowing statements - they are going to make excellent human beings that will advance our species!

I can't wait for you to get the book! Thanks for including it on your list.

I live in Northern Virginia, and it is so beautiful here. I've only lived here for over a year. I've never seen so many brilliant colors of leaves before!
