What are you doing this weekend?

Happy Friday, everyone! Is it just me, or does it feel like next week should be the start of August? I keep having these weird moments where I think that I'm heading to San Diego next week, when in fact it's the week after. And while I'm kind of glad for the extra time (packing and getting ready to go is going to be a bit nuts), it feels weird. Please tell me I'm not the only one!

Anyway, what are you doing this weekend? ACS and I are celebrating our two-year anniversary next week (aw), but since, you know, we've got the long-distance thing going on right now, we're getting together this weekend. We don't have anything special planned—I think we're pretty much just going to hang out—but since the next two weeks are going to be cer-azy (little brother's wedding, milestone birthday, etc.), I'm really looking forward to the relaxation.

Oh, and if you're in the mood for some reading this weekend, here are three great links:

Saying yes when you should say no: This Fast Company article is a really great read, because saying no (and the consequences I make myself think come with it) is really hard for me and a lot of others I know. (via Kate)

I can't wait for Homeland to start again (obsessed). Love this interview with Claire Danes, with bonus Damian Lewis photos.

I really like this post about blogging from Helen Jane. It's a year old, but I think it's still relevant.

And in case you missed anything here this week: Anna Maria Donuts (my new favorite place), a personal challenge (scary, but so far, so good—thank you so much for all your kind comments), Ask Amy (as in, Poehler) and beautiful goods from Proud Mary.

Have a magical weekend with the ones you love, friends! xoxo

  1. Timing is so weird for me this summer too. I have my exams at the end of August, so it feels like time is moving slowly, but then I suddenly realize how close we are and I panic. So strange!

    Congrats on the anniversary...have fun!

    And I'm just noticing your photo citation...I love how indiscreet it is...might have to borrow it!

    1. Thanks, Clair! Glad I'm not the only one who thinks this whole summer time-flying thing is weird. :) Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

  2. That ship is nothing short of magical. I am totally with you on thinking next week was the end of August. This month has been so jam-packed, it seems like it should be ending already, but like you, I am happy for the extra time.

    Enjoy your relaxation! I'm heading to the International Beer Festival after work tonight with a new friend, then tomorrow spending the day with my family at the Highland Games- so ready to get my Scottish on!

    1. Yes, love that ship photo so much! And your weekend sounds perfect--hope you have a wonderful time, Rachel! xo
