plans

hellooo three-day weekend! i don't know about you, but i am eagerly awaiting six o'clock, for then i shall be free from work for a glorious 72 hours. here is what i plan on doing:

biking. a morning bike ride with my mom at arbor hills nature preserve is on the schedule and i'm actually quite excited to get up (very early) to do this.

reading. keith and i started a vintage book club, for which we've decided to read older books and classics. the first selection is the perennial classic to kill a mockingbird by harper lee. i haven't read this since ninth grade and i'm really enjoying it. and let's be honest, i'm actually picking up on its beautifully crafted symbolism and themes this time around, too. and i've decided that if i ever have a son, his name shall be atticus.

knitting. i realized the other night that i haven't cast on a single stitch in more than a year. this is crazy and must be remedied!

hunting for treasure. there's a small chance that i'll be driving almost two hours to pick, √† la american pickers. if this actually pans out, i will be one happy girl. we have family friends whose 90-year-old grandfather owns acres and acres of sheds and barns filled (filled!) with stuff. i can only image what treasure there is to be found.

shopping. if you like mid-century anything, you should check out mid2mod. besides being an extremely informative source for mid-century designers, furniture, gardening, etc., on the internet, there's a physical mid2mod store in downtown dallas. this weekend they're having a great memorial day sale and i'm totally drooling over this buffet. the piece is reasonably priced to begin with, so i can't wait to see what type of discount is being offered. maybe it's time i purchased my first investment piece? ha, that sounds so odd and grown-up to me.

and in between all of this? i plan on doing absolutely nothing. what are your plans?

  1. What a fantastic weekend you've got planned! Colt and I have some errands to run, but other than that, we're going to take it easy. We've got a ton of excitement coming up next week, which we'll need a lot of energy for. I hope you have a fantastic time doing all that you plan to do!

  3. Aw, I hope your weekend was fantastic! I am just now getting to blog reading, I'm a bit behind :-) I have some friends who named their daughter Scout in honor of the book. She is a cute lil' kid and scrappy too!
