It has been a WEEK. And I’m not stressing the number of days, but just the sheer full busy-ness of it. I am tired. So much so that I completely forgot to put together a Friday Favorites post. So you get this instead:
How cute is she? All curled up by my office chair. 🙂 While the coming weekend looks to be just as busy, at least most of it is fun stuff. Things in store for yours truly this weekend:
Watching Ghostbusters for the first time (yes, I know) at a friend’s house while enjoying nachos and buttermilk pie. Possibly some gaming to follow.
Trying out some new breakfast cookery (homemade mini danishes and sausage rolls). If this works out there will be a recipe post.
New internet company comes tomorrow. We’re upgrading to a much speedier connection, which excites this internet-dependent businesswoman.
More screenprinting! Continuing the layered ombre look, and probably some more phoenix prints.
Going to a hockey game (Texas Stars) for the first time in YEARS, with an actual Canadian. Should be good!
Tentatively meeting up with my friend from Australia who is supposed to be in town this weekend. I hope this still happens/he commits to actual plans.
Taking advantage of Austin Restaurant Week some more by hitting up Fogo de Chao with Ian’s work buddies.
Finishing the book I’m reading (The Tiger’s Wife).
Probably some laundry and dishes and general house cleaning stuff in there as well.
I am… absolutely loving the text mail notification service the post office now offers for my P.O. Box. No more wasted trips hoping for paychecks only to be disappointed by an empty box! still really tired, despite application of caffeine. I may have drunk too much wine on date night last night. slightly annoyed with a friend who expects me to meet up with him while he’s in town this weekend, yet keeps changing plans. Not sure if it’s going to end up happening, since the boy & I have other plans to work around. thrilled with most of the […]
Prints of the new phoenix design hit the shop this past weekend! Take a look (more to come in the next few weeks): Fiery colors obviously work best with the theme of the design, but I kind of really want to do one in a blue-green. Could I get away with that, do you think? By the way, in case you didn’t know, I do accept custom orders. If there’s a color combo of any of the prints that’s not in your size, or a color combo I haven’t done that you’d like, just let me know! You can either […]
A hilarious look at what happens when a 35 year old man retakes the SAT. I did good on this test the first time around, but certainly didn’t enjoy it or ever want to take it again. I’m going to have to try this DIY Inkblot Artwork from Haley’s blog. I KNEW all my fiction reading was good for me. The Neuroscience of Your Brain on Fiction backs me up. Also along book news lines, further validation for my anti e-reader stance: do e-books impair memory? These minimalist Lego ads are pretty neat. Can you guess all the characters? These […]
It was so beautiful and sunny out today, I thought it was time to bust out this lacy flowy skirt. LOVE this skirt (you may have realized by now I have a deep and abiding love for lace). It is so comfortable and effortless, and the lace overlay gives it a subtle but interesting texture. I’m also loving this belt. I just got it yesterday; it was actually attached to a shirt I bought, and I may in fact have gotten the shirt solely for this belt, haha. While not lace, it is crochet, which is a close enough cousin. […]
