Weekend Roundup: No. 167



Happy, happy Friday! This week was much better than the last. Tantrums were fewer and we all got a little more sleep. Things are looking up.


I pick up the new iPhone today! I’m pretty excited to test it out this weekend. In case you missed it, one of my best girlfriends is flying in tomorrow for a quick weekend visit. We’re leaving Jim with the kids and staying in Santa Monica for the night. I cannot wait to eat, sleep, shop, laugh, drink, relax, sleep (oh did I already say that??). Clearly I’m just a little excited.


I had a mini revelation this week. Sometimes I see an article of clothing and think I need it. Since we’re being extra cautious with our expenses this year, I am really trying not to make impulsive purchases. By giving myself time, I find I already own something similar. Does that ever happen to you?


I hope you enjoy this first weekend of fall!



Lawson, Sybil and I went on a few fun excursions this week. We checked out Pan Pacific Park, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Grove and Barnes & Noble. Oh and they napped at the same time twice!



A family member asked for our address last week. I quickly sent it off not realizing I forgot to include a key component: our apartment number. I feel terrible about making little mistakes. It’s a good reminder to slow down.



While at Barnes & Noble a couple of weeks ago, I saw the book “Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls” and took a photo as a reminder to add it to Sybil’s Christmas list. When we were there this week, I noticed they had signed copies available. Since we never gave Sybil a birthday gift, I decided the book was the perfect one for her first birthday. I want her to know she can do and be anything she wants. Since doing a little quick research, I’ve learned the book is the #1 most crowdfunded original book. Pretty impressive.


P.S. In case you were counting, you may have noticed the weekend roundup numbers jumped a bit (really I know no one will notice, but just in case I have to mention it). I finally actually counted them and now it’s accurate. Hey, it’s the little things in life, right?
