So, as you read this, I’m on my way to our nation’s capital to watch one of my oldest friends get married to his lovely bride. We’re all pretty excited, especially since most of us have known each other since we were in elementary school, and so obviously the weekend will be spent with a lot of “Hey, remember when’s” that won’t at all bother the spouses and boyfriends/girlfriends of those who WEREN’T around when they were 11. CB is very excited.
Anyway, I couldn’t leave you all hanging today, though, so let’s get to it!
Drum roll please…..we got an apartment!
Clearly all of your good apartment vibes made their way to the coast and we will officially be living in sin as of July. Thanks for all of the notes of support! We are super-excited, and for those of you who follow me on Pinterest, expect to see some action over on the apartment page as I maniacally start to decorate. I’ve been waiting for this moment for weeks! Also, I’m incredibly busy and not at all lame.
So, this is just about the best thing anyone’s ever sent to me (thanks, Mary!). And around 1:22 is just about my favorite moment in life.
This week’s book of the week is from a while back, but is a book that I’ve read multiple times over the years. It’s a great one to have on your bookshelf (or in one of those fancy space-aged contraptions that make words appear on the screen). You can pick it up, read a few essays, and put it down, with different stories speaking to you at different moments in your life. I highly recommend it – as do several members of my family! And if that’s not a rousing endorsement, I don’t know what is!

And now, the Video of the Week. This is by one of my all-time favorite bands, which makes CB roll his eyes each and every time I say it. When he listens to The National, for example, he says that he then needs to be put on suicide watch for the next day. Also, he's incredibly dramatic.
He thinks I have “dark” taste in both my literature and music taste. However, I am the person who has both reviewed Stori Telling by Tori Spelling on the book blog and call “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” by Whitney Houston my go-to song for feeling good.
So clearly he’s wrong. And The National is the best.
Happy wedding, Mike and Jess!
Happy Friday, everyone!
