It's Friday again--my favorite!! This week has been the best kind of busy--Maddie and I snuck down to Chicago on Monday to see the Arctic Monkeys in concert at the Riviera. It was so much fun to make that happen for her. She just kept saying, "I don't know what I did to deserve this!" It was the best. I know for a fact that my parents would have never even considered pulling me out of school to drive 3 1/2 hours to see my favorite band, which is precisely why I did it. (Just kidding, Mom and Dad--you were awesome parents even though you didn't let me see Grease or go to rollerskating parties). It helps to have super-smart kids who can afford to miss a school day every now and then.
1. At the risk of being that blogger who always shares a link to the same blog, I'm going to go ahead and share another one from Glennon. This one is on why social media can be a dangerous thing. It really made me think. It also reaffirmed my desire to be friends with her. I love everything that woman writes. She just seems incredibly cool, you know?
I love this cake. I want to make those cake toppers.
This Pinterest board full of fall goodness is the perfect inspiration.
4. Last Friday I had a rough time at CrossFit. It was the first time I was unable to finish a workout, and I ended up crying. On Tuesday, these arrived in the mail. I put one on the inside of my left wrist. I see it every time I workout. It helps. Maddie is also sporting one on the inside of her left wrist. She said it makes her happy all day long. Words are powerful.ridiculously cute balloon garland makes me want to throw a party (what doesn't?!?). But seriously, I really need to throw a party...soon!
Have a fabulous, wonderful weekend, friends!
