Have an amazing Thanksgiving to my American readers! I made this braided cherry pie last night along with a cheesecake pie, and a s’mores pie. Headed down the street to Jared’s sister’s house right now to roll my grandma’s special rolls and let them sit for 6+ hours. Hope your day is happy, hopeful, and pants-unbuttoning delicious. Be back tomorrow! xoxo, Liz
Also, some great Black Friday sales happening now…
One of my dearest friends, Mardi, is here visiting for Thanksgiving from Boston. She was my first best friend. We lived next door to each other when we were kids growing up in New York and have so many crazy childhood memories together. Between Oakland food tours and baking for Thanksgiving, I’ve somehow convinced her to share a few outfits to wear for Thanksgiving. Here are three comfy and stylish looks…
For many women I know, buying their first bra as a girl was a mortifying experience. When I was 11 or 12 even walking past the underwear section at a department store gave me serious anxiety. What if my mom picks this day to drag me into one!? Today we’re sharing some hilarious (and painfully mortifying) first bra stories in partnership with ThirdLove, an innovative bra and underwear company specializing in half-cup sizes (!), a mobile sizing app, and Try Before you Buy program.
Pull up a chair guys, lots of crazy stories ahead…

My friend Melissa Bahen of Lulu The Baker just came out with a new book called Scandinavian Gatherings. It’s filled to the brim with so many great projects and recipes, and it’s really giving me the travel bug! I’ve never been to Scandinavia and I’m really itching to go one day. She was kind enough to let me share this hot almond-citrus punch recipe with you today. Doesn’t it seem like the perfect holiday drink for a crowd? Here’s how to make it…
We’ve done potato stamping before and I’m always pleasantly surprised with how easy it is, and how nice it turns out when done the right way. Today we’re making some fall leaves with our potato stamps. It’s a great way to get the kids busy while you’re baking this week, and then you can use it as a tablecloth for the kids table on Thanksgiving! Or, simply some window stamping with washable paint on a rainy day. Here’s how to make them…

I’m excited to share with you another fun family video we made with Lysol. This time, we’re tackling some easy ways to get the kids involved with family chores, especially with cold and flu season coming up where we have to be extra vigilant about disinfecting hard surfaces. We’re partnering with Lysol and their Disinfecting Wipes to be proactive about cleanliness of toys, car seats, door handles, and other common hard surfaces without getting out the paper towels. These common surfaces can hold cold and flu germs for up to 48 hours and these wipes kill 99.9% of them.*
Check out our fun video below showing some scenes from our daily life, including the walk to school and our disco ball cleaning dance parties:
And keep reading for a few favorite moments from shooting the video…
We’re working with Martha Stewart’s line of holiday decor at Home Depot for a few DIY posts to get you in the spirit of crafting this holiday season. We’re so inspired by all the Martha Stewart projects, season after season. We found this hula hoop project as inspiration for our hanging twinkling snowflakes that we’re sharing today. Here’s how to make them + a roundup of some favorites from the collection…
