It's Friday! I'm ready to enjoy today --especially given my Thursday: I decided to spend the ENTIRE day with my son, which meant keeping him home from Montessori school so that we could spend some quality mom-son time together: a morning walk, tumbling class, lunch together (hello soup & salad bar, where kids eat free!), and then a nice long nap (he slept from 1-3:30pm!), followed by more time outdoors. However, all that one-on-one time left me exhausted by the end of the day.
What am I going to do when I have two kids?!
No time to dwell on that right now. I'm looking forward to the weekend! I'll leave you with five random thoughts I've got on the brain right now... Have a great weekend!
Weekend plans. What I'm looking forward to this weekend: an Oktoberfest here in Colorado. I know, it's still September, but I guess they get started early here. I clearly won't be drinking any beer, but I'm looking forward to sampling some decent German food!
Careers. I've officially been out of the work force for almost a year now, but I love reading about other people's career trajectories. I especially enjoyed this article from Jo Goddard (author of Cup of Jo!) and 10 lessons she's learned from her career, everything from leaving law school to working in various magazines in NYC to her job today as a full-time blogger.
Pumpkins. We'll be hitting a pumpkin patch in a couple more weeks, but until then, I'm already dreaming about all the ways I can put pumpkin to use. I loved this post from Jenn @ GirlOnTheMove...links to all things pumpkin!
Fall wardrobe shopping. I think we're only a couple weeks away from cooler weather here in Colorado. The challenge is (1) finding maternity wear that doesn't make me look like I'm wearing a tent; (2) investing in something that I might wear post-pregnancy. I found this awesome coat but it was a sample sale item and they're out of my size. So I'm focusing on accessories, like this boot in a wine color.
City or suburb? Here's an article that made me reminisce about living in a big city...apparently not all big cities are created equal. This article opened my eyes to a possible shift we may see in our American cities in the future.
What about you? What are you thinking about this fine Friday?
