*Jumping up and down with excitement over my dear friend Lauren‘s engagement (and being asked to be a bridesmaid!!!!!). I couldn’t be more thrilled for her, and I’m so honored to be able to stand next to her.
* Obsessing over Pocket. I started using it this week after reading that two of my favorite people (Lisa and Lauren) both use it, and I’m obsessed. It’s an incredible tool for saving things that you want to read within the next day or so.
*Perusing my daily Skimm email every day. If you’re a professonal looking for an smart and concise daily summary of the news delivered to your inbox, you must sign up for Skimm.
*Returning to rock climbing. Over the weekend the hubs and I renewed our membership to the local climbing gym and got back in our harnesses. My muscles are aching a bit in the best possible ways. I’m looking forward to geting back into a climbing routine (and even mixing in some yoga classes).
*Getting nervous about my upcoming blog redesign (starts on Monday!). There are so many things that I’m thinking about, and I’m trying to get everything down on paper. I can’t wait to work with Elembee.
*Feeling shocked about the ending of The Bachelorette. I’m happy for Des if she’s happy, but what the heck happened with Brooks and in general with all the crazy editing this season?!
*Looking at several houses to rent in the gorgeous Rio del Mar for my birthday. I think that my dream to be on the beach with good food and friends to help me welcome the next decade may actually happen!
*Needing a hair cut STAT. I’m seriously considering reintroducing my old straight across bangs, but I’m wavering back and forth. What do you think? Bangs or no bangs?
*Missing my family. My brother Dirk started his very own blog today! Does this mean more funny stories and adorable photos of my nephews??? Check. and Check.
*Stressing over work. I’ve been picking up some slack while a few of my team members are on vacation, and it’s been wearing me down a bit.
*Preparing to head to Chicago by myself from Sunday-Wednesday for a conference for work. I’ve never been to Chicago, so I’m looking forward to exploring the city and attending my first Cubs game!
*Reading The Fault in our Stars and getting really attached to the characters. I can already tell a few chapters in that this one is probably going to be a tear jerker.
*Mourning the loss of my camera. She has definitely taken her last picture. Luckily, she’s under warranty, so we’re going to send her in, but in the meantime I’m up a creek without a camera not sure what to do. I didn’t realize how much I depend on that thing!
*Wishing that San Francisco’s Winter-Summer would move on already. I’m ready for the sunshine again!
Happy Friday friends. This afternoon we’re headed up to Napa for Viet’s company picnic. Tomorrow I’ve got a killer shopping/mani date planned with my ladies; we’re off to a double dinner date with new friends in the evening; and on Sunday I’m headed to Chicago!!!
What do you have planned for the weekend?
