friday finds & favorites #11

What a week, huh? Even though I'm not on the east coast, I couldn't help but feel rocked by seeing all the destruction over there. (these photos in particular are mind-numbing.)My prayers are still with them.

things I loved this week:

- going to here tomorrow with this lady & this lady! (and I'll see this lady, this funny one and this one too.) yay!

to be honest I am not loving the weather here, it definitely hasn't been pretty-- loads and loads of rain--but it is making me eye some rain gear...

 sweater: modcloth // umbrella: modcloth // rainboots: signals

-  I want to cook this soup, and make these... and I actually baked these. Quite delish (and easy!)

and speaking of food...

- I posed a recipe for pumpkin oatmeal cookies on The Shine Project blog. You may want to go check it out.
