It’s a Friday in October… you should be feeling pretty good right now.
What are your weekend plans? Mine include the State Fair of Texas, a fall party, and a whole lot of TV/book catching up to do. Doesn’t get much better than that.
Here are my favorites from the week:
- I loved this list of the 40 books every woman should read by 40. I’ve read many of the suggested titles, but still have a ways to go before getting through all 40 books. I’m a lover of biographies, so Katharine Graham’s memoir “Personal History” particularly caught my eye.
- I turned 27 on Monday. And for the first time ever, I felt pretty blah about my birthday. According to the world wide web, a negative view of 27 isn’t all that strange (Exhibit A and Exhibit B). But you know what? I’m bound and determined to make this year a good one. Please stay tuned until next fall when I write a blog about why 27 is actually the best year of life.
- I saw this New Orleans home tour on Apartment Therapy (I love her extra-long kitchen table), and have since developed an obsession with all things NOLA. How have I never been to this cool city? I foresee a road trip in my near future and I’m using these two blog posts (here and here) as my travel guides.
- Life has been the best kind of busy lately, but even fun busy can wear a girl out. Yesterday, I took a few hours off of my part-time job and went for a long run at White Rock Lake. I love WR—it’s pretty, it’s peaceful, it reminds me of being a kid, it’s where my parents fell in love (another story for another time)…it’s just a gift. Way to be great, White Rock Lake.
Well, guys, I’ve got to run. It’s time for me to have my annual date with Big Tex. We’ll eat some fancy-schmancy corn dogs and make eyes at each other on the ferris wheel. Aren’t you jealous?
