Good morning! It is certainly beginning to look a lot like Christmas around here. We set up our tree yesterday and watched the first Harry Potter movie and that Christmastime feeling of excitement and joy settled in and I'm just so excited this year because all of my family will be together again. I can't wait! And the Charlie Brown Christmas soundtrack giveaway is still on - through Sunday at 6 MST. Don't miss it! Also, here are my favorite things from the Internet lately - just for you. Enjoy!

We heard this lecture in its entirety in the van and it was SO GOOD.

There is no way this is real. Right?

One photographer's fascinating look at headscarves.

This week, from my blogtern: this would make a great Christmas gift.

Stories like this one are the reason I love Ann Curry.  

Somebody should probably get fired for this, but it's also kind of endearing.

Check out Natalie's fall photo project - my instagram was included! Fun!
