Friday makes me happy. Very happy. I always start my weekend with a to-do list a mile long and, always, inevitably, make very little progress on it. So busy am I with doing the things that I don’t have time for that, well, I don’t have time for them still. But whatever, there’s always next weekend, right??
What I’m Reading this Weekend:
Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen. Having recently read Evelina by Frances Burney (Miss Austen’s predecessor, whom I’ve already blogged about), I thrilled to see a reference to it in Northanger Abbey, something I had never noticed before (and I’ve visited this book multiple times!).
Diary of A Provincial Lady by E.M. Delafield. So far an enjoyable story of a British family straddling modernity and tradition in the 1930’s and written in humorous, journal-like snippets.
My Shopping Plans
I plan on picking out a new fall fragrance this weekend. As a horrible decision-maker, I predict that not only will this monumental, life-altering choice take forever to make, but that my nose will have lost all sense of smell at the end of it.
Any place that has a sale! (Did you see that Anthropologie is having an extra 25% off? Wut wut?! See ya in the sale section…)
My lovely mom has a birthday next week. I plan on getting some pretty things for her big day. (Any one else have a mom whose style sense is closely related to your own? Makes shopping so.much.fun!)
Eating and Drinking
Whatever I indulge in this weekend, let me tell you, it will be good. (I don’t work out all week not to enjoy my weekend foods…)
Come back tomorrow for part 2 of Paris! Until then, dear friends… xo
