Friday Faves: October 26, 2012

Chicago’s two-day Indian summer has come to an end. And I gotta say, I’m happy for that. Something about 80-degree days in late October just doesn’t feel right to me. Still, I bet my weekend visitors would prefer that to the chill that’s supposed to be in the air the next several days.

While I go put the finishing touches on the pumpkin cheeseball for the weekend, enjoy these links from around the web.

A bacon dog costume? Genius!

There is a serious shortage of storage space in my home, specifically, in my closets. Love some of these ideas, especially the shoes in the glass dresser.

A friend is leaving for Paris tomorrow for his birthday trip. I think this time of year is one of the prettiest times to visit. And I find this handy map/key to the arrondissements very helpful.

I feel like new travel websites are a dime a dozen, but caught my eye. Sure, plenty of sites offer guides, but not in this “do it yourself” format.

I wouldn’t feel complete without sharing a recipe. I’ll be trying this Pumpkin French Toast Bake this weekend.
