What are you doing this weekend?
Happy Friday, friends! Did you have a good week? With the notable exception of thinking that I may have broken my toe on Tuesday morning—my cat Oscar was meowing loudly at something at 6 a.m., and in a fit of rage (ha) I jumped out of my bed to see what it was and...tripped and fell over the hem of my pajama pants—it's been a good five days around these parts. My house is clean, my head is feeling clearer than it has in awhile (more on that next week) and in spite of the fact that I hate getting out of bed when it's still dark out, there's definitely something to be said for having an extra hour of daylight. Plus, ACS is here for the weekend—bonus.
This weekend, we're planning to spend lots of time outside and with friends, and on Sunday I'm going on a hunt for a dress for my friend Kate's bridal shower (more on that to come soon, too).
And if you're in the mood for some reading, here are four great links:
Anne-Marie Slaughter reviews Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg's Lean In. I met Slaughter and listened to her speak on Wednesday and interviewed her (here); she was wonderful, but she's very clear that she thinks what Sandberg is saying is "not enough."
Leo Babauta's advice to his kids. This is so sweet and lovely. (via Cup of Jo)
Despite working in digital media, I am still a person who tries to hand-write thank-you notes. So this article—"Disruptions: Digital Era Redefining Etiquette"—was fascinating to me, and not necessarily in a good way. I'd love to hear your thoughts on it. ETA: An update!
And bonus: Why are there so many smart, funny, strong female protagonists on TV right now who also happen to be borderline insane? Good question.
See you back here on Monday!
P.S. Also this week: Schmidt!, the best salted caramel brownies, The Burning House and my favorite weeknight soup.
