This week I…
+ am getting a much needed haircut today. One of life’s greatest little luxuries really is having someone wash and trim your hair.
+ am SO sad about the Google Reader news. As in, it’s going away in July. I’m curious, how do you keep up with your favorite blogs and websites?
+ have two exciting pieces of news to share. One, that big project I’ve been working away on? More details are coming soon. Like, really soon. Get excited! Be sure to check back on Monday for the scoop of what we (as in, Meg and I) have been up to!
+ am packing my bags early next week and heading to…Columbus? I’ve actually been invited to visit Wendy’s headquarters. Yes, as in, dip-your-fries-in-your-Frosty’s Wendy’s. I’ve seen the insides of restaurant and industrial kitchens, but never on a scale this big, so I’m very curious to see how such a major food operation works behind the scenes! Stay tuned.
+ had been searching for the perfect pair of dressy booties for ages and finally came across these on sale at Barney’s. Score! When it comes to boots of almost any kind, I view them as total investment pieces and don’t mind spending a little more. I’m glad I waited to find the perfect pair!
+ found this amusing. Thanks for sending it to me, M!
The skydiving question was almost evenly split, which makes me feel better to know that many of you ladies are as chicken as I am…
You crazy daredevils, you!
Iâm not an adrenaline junkie AT ALL, so the closest thing Iâve done is taking a hot air balloon ride. It was in Luxor where the hot air balloon tragedy just happened, so maybe it was riskier than I thought!
I took Hubs skydiving for his birthday one year and tagged along. He was pretty sure that I was going to get up and then just take the flight back down because apparently I looked terrified, but I totally did it and it was AMAZING. I highly recommend it at least once in your life. The views alone are breathtaking!
From Carrie S:
No skydiving for me. But in 2000, a friend and I were hiking and decided we wanted to climb Mount Whitney. It took 4 attempts (the 3rd time turning around 1/2 mile from the summit), but we finally did it! As well as climbing Mount San Jacinto, Mount Baldy, and Mount Baden-Powell. Now thatâs exhilarating.
GO SKYDIVING. Itâs an absolutely amazing time and the view is incredible. Try to get a plane where you can walk off the back (the tandem guide makes you way more comfortable). Everyone should do it, especially in California, it would be so beautiful! I went in Montana and it was one of the greatest experiences of my life. period.
No but really, I want to know. How are you planning on keeping up with your favorite blogs when/if Google Reader goes away in July? I know some of you probably don’t even use Google Reader now — so how do you currently follow blogs? Share your secrets here — it’ll help everyone to get some great suggestions next week!
