What are you doing this weekend?

April 5, 2013


Happy Friday, friends. How were your weeks? What are your plans for the weekend? I had a really good week: I was productive at work and at home, I did a lot of yoga and spin, and this weekend I get to see one of my best friends from college—and we’re going to our favorite college-town coffee shop/hangout, too. Hooray, nostalgia! It should be fun.

Oh, and if you’re in a reading mood this weekend, here are a couple of links for you:

I was so sad to hear about the death of the remarkable Roger Ebert. This essay, “Roger Loves Chaz,” is wonderful. (via Hannah)

I’m heading to San Diego this summer, so “36 Hours in San Diego” is right up my alley. (PS: Any travel tips are much appreciated!)

Why I Left News“: I tweeted this a week or so ago, but it’s stuck with me. Even though I don’t work at a daily, I can relate to at least some of what Allyson writes. Powerful and thought-provoking and a little scary (especially if you’re in media).

And in honor of Mad Men returning this Sunday (yay, yay!), I loved this interview with costume designer Janie Bryant.

And from earlier this week: April flowers for you; the best local honey I’ve tasted; on being kind to ourselves; and books I’ve recently read and loved. (Thanks for all your wonderful comments, too!)

See you back here Monday!

      HAPPY FRIDAY!!
      Yay…so happy for the weekend to be here. Thanks for all the shares, especially the 36 hours in San Diego! It’s on our short list of places we’d like to visit so I’m bookmarking this for when we end up going there in the next couple years. And I look forward to hearing about your trip when you go this summer. 🙂

      Enjoy your girl time this weekend! I’m excited to check out the Mad Men interview you linked to and of course, for Sunday’s episode! Also, I was so sad to hear about RE as well, but it’s lovely how much is being written on his amazing work.

      Have a lovely weekend, my dear!

        So glad you’re a Mad Men fan, as well! And totally agree with you–it’s sad about Ebert but the outpouring of love is wonderful.

        Have a lovely weekend, yourself! xo

      It’s always so enlightening to hear from the costume designers of a series. Can’t wait to check out the interview. I’m looking forward to a peaceful weekend with a balance of me time and catching up with some wonderful people. TGIF!
