What are you doing this weekend?

Happy Friday, friends! What are your plans for the weekend? I'm playing hooky today (eee!) and--as mentioned in yesterday's post—I plan on trying to unplug as much as possible for the next few days. Also on the docket: Making my last car payment (!!!!), quick stop at the Rifle Paper Co. storefront (yay!), lots of walks, cozy sweaters (thank you, cooler weather!), a delicious dinner out and hopefully some sleeping in.

I'll see you back here on Monday, and if you're looking for some reading material this weekend, here are three links just for you:

I interviewed Anne-Marie Slaughter for work this week, and in doing the prep for it I reread her Atlantic article, "Why Women Still Can't Have It All." If you haven't read it—or even if you have—do it. It will make you think. (The Atlantic)

I know Lena Dunham can be a polarizing figure, but I am firmly in the "love her" camp. So I thought this piece, by Miranda July, in Interview was a great read. (Interview

And finally, here's a fluffy one: You've Got Mail vs. Sleepless in Seattle. For me, it's You've Got Mail, hands down. (Nora Ephron was so wonderful.) (Vulture)

Have a beautiful weekend! xoxo

  1. I'm a Sleepless in Seattle girl. I like You've Got Mail, but the ending was so cheesy that it ruined it a bit for me.

  2. The "Why Women Still Can't Have It All' had me thinking ALOT when I stumbled upon it last year as I was getting ready to make a job change.

    I posted about it, and Facebook COO Cheryl's Strand's TED talk, here:

    1. And I should note, that I still think about Strand's "sit at the table". That TED talk is pretty intriguing.
