WHAT ARE YOU DOING THIS WEEKEND? + SOME NOTES
Happy Friday, friends—and happy first weekend of October! This is totally my favorite month of the year: The weather here in Florida finally starts to turn (which means being outside isn't face-meltingly awful) and it's acceptable to eat pumpkin everything. Totally awesome.
What are your plans for the weekend? On Saturday I'm going to a lovely friend's baby shower (so many friends are pregnant right now!), but I have no real plans for the rest of the weekend except for a beach walk and a dip in the Gulf with my bestie Kate. (That's also one of the best things about living here at this time of year: The weather cools off enough to where we Floridians notice a marked difference in temperature, but it's still basically beach weather for the rest of the country. We may not get to go apple-picking, but we can still swim in the ocean.)
Also, a quick housekeeping note: Sometime in the next two weeks, I'm going to be transitioning Pink O'Clock from Blogger to Wordpress. I use Wordpress at work all day, every day, and while I love Blogger—I've been writing here for five years!—Wordpress offers some design and posting options that I want to take advantage of. Until then, though, posting won't change here, and I'll let you know when the new site is live so you can adjust accordingly. Also, if any of you have made the transition from Blogger to Wordpress, I'd love your notes! I work in digital media so I feel pretty confident making the switch from both a tech and content standpoint, but tips and tricks are always appreciated.
So there you have it! New month, new site. Also, here are three great links for your reading pleasure this weekend:
This video of a girl quitting her job went viral, but in case you haven't seen it, it's worth the watch. Also, it makes me want to dance. (Make sure to watch her former employer's response, too.)
I love Mindy Kaling. Her show is cute and funny, and she is just a pleasure.
Speaking of TV, Homeland is back and this interview with Damian Lewis is just a good read.
Also, in case you missed anything here this week: A pretty photo of the beach, homemade chai tea, talking about my hair (again, some more) and the best banana bread ever.
Have a great weekend and I'll see you back here on Monday! xoxo
