This week I…

+ had a great couple days in Chicago! I was there alongside a few other bloggers to speak on two panels about the industry and how bloggers are working with brands (my fellow panelists Lauren, Courtney, Angie, and Paul all had such interesting insights). It was fun stuff! Really fun: getting to hang out with Alex, who took me to one of her fave restaurants, Sunda. Chicago is officially on my list of cities that I want to explore a little more!
+ got a bunch of new furniture delivered at the house. A rug, some ottomans, and a coffee table…now we just need lighting and a couch and our living room will be close to done (just don’t tell Joe about that whole art and accessorizing part).
+ started catching up on Breaking Bad. So. Good. Still driving me crazy: the fact that Time Warner and CBS have not figured out their shiz yet, and I can’t watch Dexter. We’re now like 4 episodes behind! If you’re in a Time Warner market that currently doesn’t broadcast CBS or Showtime, you totally know what I’m talking about (how insane is it that cable subscribers in New York can’t watch CBS?!?!)
+ spoiled myself and bought this book on Versailles for our new living room coffee table. I’ve already read another (non-picture) book on the chateau and can’t wait to learn even more. It’s endlessly fascinating to me!
What are you up to this fine August weekend? Laying low before Labor Day next week? This weekend, we’ll be running some errands (always), and double dating with some friends (always fun). I’m also getting sick of all the piles of stuff still living in and along various corners and walls in our house, so I think it might be time to tackle those too (always gratifying).
Wherever you are this weekend, I hope it’s a good one! See you Monday, friends.
