A good friend recently told me about her birthday celebration this year (she lives in another city, so sadly I couldn't join her) She and some friends divided up into teams and had a dessert scavenger hunt. totally beyond. They had an hour and a half to run around Washington DC and get desserts in 5 different categories: something blue, most decadent, something with the birthday girl's initials, most creative, and.....something else that I'm forgetting. Then they had 3 friends who couldn't come until later act as judges for taste, innovation, and best overall.

I need to make this activity part of my life. Like on a weekly basis.

blogging 101

Apparently I just blogged my 101st post. I wasn't sure where this blog would go when I started it, but I really love it. It's fun to look back through the posts, and I know some of my close friends can read it and stay updated on my life. It's definitely the most creative journal I've ever had, although I admit I don't put my most personal, innermost thoughts here as I would in a written journal.
I just finished my first real week of school. All I want to do this weekend is sleep and sleep. Which is exactly what I'm going to do, although I throwing a little fun in: boot shopping with my friend, and lunch with my brothers. I need to take some pictures soon too. I haven't picked up my camera for weeks.
I miss summer.

can I get some boots

I need a fierce pair of fall boots. These are a few that some friends suggested via my desparate facebook status. I sort of want a combination of all of them - something a littly funky, with a little slouch and possibly a little heel. I already have faux-leather black boots with a pointy heel for dressier stuff. These need to be more everyday.

The search begins this weekend.

(via iTunes)
This post is somewhat belated. Clearly summer is over and this movie has been out for a couple months. But I just recently saw it. I don't buy a lot of music anymore, but the soundtrack is a must. It has made my car rides and self-singalongs much more epic lately.

happy September

September and October are two of my favorite months. As a teacher, I love the back to school feel (although it can be daunting) and I love fall colors, football season, Halloween decor, and chilly, sunny days. Thanks to Jackie for reminding me about freshly sharpened pencil bouquets too :-)
That being said, I'm going to take a little blog/flickr break for several weeks. The start of school is so busy, and I also have an important extended "workshop" that I need to put a lot of effort towards, so I think it's best just to unplug for a while. Over the summer I did this a bit...while I blogged more and really enjoyed that, I spent a lot less time on facebook/email/other stuff, and I found that I really didn't miss it all that much. Balance is key. So enjoy the first few weeks of fall! Nos vemos pronto!
