Oh Weekend I Love You.

1/31/2014






Oh hey. I have a question. How in the world is tomorrow February already? It means I have to get a move on planning Mila's third birthday party. She's three???!! What are your plans this weekend? Matt and I have a date night tomorrow. We're going to see The Hobbit. I know, I've heard mediocre reviews. But we're really nerdy at heart and J.R.R. Tolkien's stories captivated me as a child. Middle Earth was a magical, imaginative place. These days I'm consumed with navigating through the real world; and it's often filled with worries, concerns and obligations. As an adult, I sometimes crave that dreamy, whimsical state of mind that was so acute when I was younger. For a couple hours I'll go back. ;)

Sundance films you may need to know.

Meryl Streep can do anything.

All American Sweater.

This interview with George Clooney. Spoiler: He's perfect.  

The most beautiful DIY floral heart wreath (A shout out to my talented co-worker, Michaela). 

How much snow does it take to cancel school?

Joe Biden cracks me up.

The Full House guys reunite on Jimmy Fallon.

This dress has me dreaming of summer.

50 things every traveler should know.

How long have I got left. (Life. Death. That Uncertain In-Between).

Be well my friends. See you Monday.

I can't BELIEVE tomorrow is February. Time is flying. Craig really wants to go see The Hobbit, but I keep telling him he'll have more fun going with his friends instead of me :) Today is Chinese New Year, so I'll be celebrating all weekend with my family!

Joe Biden is the only reason I watched the State of the Union. ;) Kidding, but partly true! He cracks me up, too. Have fun on your date night tomorrow! And happy February!! xo

Sounds like you guys have a lovely weekend ahead of you! We actually really liked The Hobbit. The Husband didn't realize it was part 2 of a trilogy so he was a little disappointed that it ended without "ending" but otherwise, we liked it! Hope you enjoy it, too. :)

Oh the map of snow-related school closings is spot on! I live in eastern NC and work for a university, and I've been out of work all week! I can't say I mind it! ;)

Sounds like a perfect weekend! Mine will be spent recuperating before my crazy week ahead. I'm so looking forward for the chance to just finally veg out. I live for the weekend!

And duh, George is perfect. <3
