Ian's birthday is on Monday, but we're celebrating this weekend with a quick trip to Carmel to visit our potential wedding venue. Wishing my better half the happiest of birthdays.

And because I don't think he'd mind sharing his birthday post, here's some links we loved this week.

We started our 2012 Holiday Gift Guide series with Luck Be a Lady (ideal gifts for mom, sisters and friends) and Home is Wherever I'm With You (the best home items we could find!). Stay tuned for more gift guides next week!

Some of our favorite bloggers, like A PIECE of TOAST, Sequins & Stripes and CouldIHaveThat. And be sure to check out To & From.

Speaking of holiday wish lists, Sarah from a house in the hills is making me want this Joie snow leopard blouse.

The Everygirl posted a guide on what to pack in your carry-on, work bag and gym bag. Genius!

Joanna shared the trailer to season 2 of HBO's Girls. Can.Not.Wait.

I've never had savory bread pudding, but this recipe for butternut squash bread pudding (spotted on Pennyweight) looks like the perfect fall dish.

As much as I'm exciting for the holidays and that we're finally getting colder weather, our shorely chic giveaway has me dreaming of a beach vacation. Enter here.
