Happy weekend

This weekend I'm looking forward to watching the 141st Kentucky Derby on Saturday. On Sunday, I'm headed to Palm Beach Gardens to have brunch and check out the new Madewell store with one of my favorite friends. 

It is weirdly and amazingly cooler here today in South Florida. 

Have a good one!

The Woman I Wanted to Be

I LOVED this book. Like, I will read it again, and then probably five more times after that, and then give a copy to all of my favorite people including my mom for Mother's Day so hopefully she's not reading this... LOVED it. 
I listened to Diane von Furstenberg's The Woman I Wanted to Be on Audible, and because it's narrated by DVF herself, her lilting European accent made the experience even better than if I'd read it the old-fashioned way. I listened to it while walking in the evenings, and I came home feeling like I'd just had a long chat with a wise friend.

Hands up for the weekend!

This has been a long/slow/fast/crazy/hectic/busy/rainy/hot week for me. Has it felt that way for anyone else? I'm so glad that it's Friday. 

Ellie has an almost symptom-less strep throat, so she's been home from school, but feeling fine. 
This weekend, I'll be continuing Sarah Kate's bicycle-riding lessons. This is really the blind leading the blind since I can barely ride a bike myself. We're planning to go to the Pompano Beach Seafood Festival, and eat here for date night. I'm also super-psyched to get my hair done and to go see Age of Adaline with my girlfriend.

Have a relaxing weekend!

Have you been watching Bloodline on Netflix? I'm a big fan. I originally dismissed it as riding in on House of Cards' coattails, but after watching almost the entire season (I'm on episode 9 out of 13)- I'm 100% addicted.

  • Looking forward to watching this HBO documentary by one of my favorite directors about one of my favorite subjects. 

  • I'm planning to make this as a side for a pre-Easter dinner Saturday night.

  • I recently stopped using water and started using this to wash my face. So far, so good.

  • I'm really feeling these shoes. Don't they look perfect on Mary?!

Paris: observations

One of my favorite things about traveling is making cultural observations.  I also just love seeing what people are wearing. Being there during Paris Fashion Week did not disappoint.  Here are some of the more interesting things I noticed in Paris:

Internet Wisdom

I'm in Vegas for the weekend. I've never been here! It's really...something! Have a great weekend.

  • I can't resist personality quizzes: Are you an Upholder an Obliger a Questioner or a Rebel? I'm an Obliger with occasional Rebel tendencies. 

  • Has anyone watched this new Netflix series? Drama! Florida Keys!! Super hot dad/coach from Friday Night Lights!!! SISSY SPACEK!!!!

  • Suddenly questioning why anyone ever iced the sides of layer cakes.

  • I just bought these, and I plan on living in them.
