Friday Round-Up

Twenty-four hours from now, I will be back on the beach. It's only for a few short days, but I take what I can get around here. And I am very, very lucky that I live close enough to the ocean that Brigid and I can tag along on my parents' spring break trip, without having to commit to the full week that they're taking. And I'm also very lucky that my parents agreed to head to Florida via Georgia this time, instead of the Alabama line they usually take, so that my sister can entertain Brigid spend some quality time with me in the car between Atlanta and and the coast.

Where I am a little less lucky is the five hour trip home on Tuesday, when it will be just me, a two-year old, and a whole lot of nothing to do, but I'm choosing not to think about that right now...

(But, if you have a free second on Tuesday, please, please, PLEASE send a couple of unicorn and sunshine thoughts my way, mkay?)


And now, a few things I found while trying to catch up on my Google Reader list, again:

I love this idea on overcoming the post-vacation blues, because hoooooo buddy does the week after vacation get me down.

This is just all kinds of beautiful writing, right here.

I find these bags kind of cool and kind of freaky, all at the same time. And I kind of think I want one because of it.

This makes me want to go out, buy ten Oxford shirts, and wear nothing but for the next three months.


Have a great weekend, friends!


  1. Have a great time at the beach! You do have a portable DVD player, right? My husband's sister is getting married at the beach SIX HOURS AWAY in September and I'm already stressing about how to entertain an almost 8-year old and an almost 5-year old (and to stop them from fighting!) for the trip down and back.

    Oh, and I LOVE an oxford shirt. A perfect, 3/4-sleeve, crisp, fitted oxford. So classic, so versatile! I've been looking for the perfect white one for ages and ages. I may have to suck it up and throw down the money for J Crew... when I get a job again, that is.

  2. Whenever I have to drive longer than three hours, I leave super early like around 3 or 4 in the morning, so that the kids will sleep. =) Or I try to wear them out before I leave, so that they'll crash. Or I just shove the Ipad in front of Little Guy's face and tell him to play whatever he wants. lol

    Have a great time at the beach!! Wait... you're there right now! I'm jealous. =)
