Working for the Weekend

Although the week has started and I am already well into my crazy schedule, my mind is stuck on my weekend. In my mind I am still bike riding along the strand or sipping mimosas with a good friend after finishing our 10K.

Only a few more days before we get to enjoy another little life break.


For some extra fun-timez, here are a few great things the internet has introduced to me today:

  1. I just can’t quit watching the NPR tiny desk concerts, here is a great one of Swell Season.
  2. While I was considering just making some myself, these coasters may have changed my mind.
  3. Last chance to vote for Homies on Apartment Therapy – everyone should vote! (If you are dying to know who I voted for, here is a hint: rhymes with Ranhattan Fest)
  4. I think I could literally listen to Amy Winehouse singing Valerie for the rest of the week, straight.
  5. Booked our flights and our rental care for our spring break, Europe trip. Countries will include Belgium, Germany, and France. Send any must-see’s my way. (So far I have taken about 20 pages of notes from Oh Happy Day’s Paris posts)
  6. My type-friends will appreciate this: Kern Ring Set. I also appreciate and want to own them.
  7. Two favorite recent (crazy stylish and beautiful) blogs I have found: Sweet Thing and JASPR.
  8. My web design class meets for the second time tonight and I can already tell this is going to be one of my favorite classes of all time. Big plans, huge goals, and exciting future – here I come.
  9. This Design Sponge, Bri Emery of Design Love Fest and Blogshop feature is so inspiring and motivating. Repeat – big plans, huge goals, and exciting future – here I come.
  10. This vegan paleo recipe posted by Jeremy and Kathleen has me wanting to go vegan paleo.

What are your weekend plans? What are your huge goals?

  1. Two things:

    1.) I love Manhattan Nest too! Daniel is hilarious and I love his style. I found his blog through my friend, who knows his brother from college. Small world.

    2.) So jealous you are going to Europe for spring break! I would highly recommend visiting Antwerpen in Belgium… it is BEAUTIFUL, and we stayed in this awesome hostel that had over 400 beers on tap. It was a lovely city, and I can’t wait to go back there someday.

    I’m not sure if you are a Rick Steves fan, but we had great experiences based on his recommendations for our Europe trip in July 2011. 🙂

  2. Christy – Manhattan Nest is one of my favorites, I have been reading Daniel’s blog for years now and it just seems to get better and better, definitely someone I look up to greatly. (If you didn’t already, Homies ends tonight – go vote!)

    Thank you so much for the Belgium recommendation, that is one leg of the trip that we really know nothing about and now I will definitely see about adding Antwerpen to the list (and Alex will LOVE the beers.) My dad actually sent me all of Rick Steve’s videos on a hard drive so I need to make a weekend of watching all his recommendations for sure.

    I am so glad you commented – now I even more excited to keep planning my trip, you made my day!
