Happy Weekend!

Because when you stop and look around, this life is pretty amazing.
Dr. Seuss

Well, we survived the first week back to school. It is always busy|exciting|crazy|stressful|exhausting and excruciatingly hot!  By this time, the kids are ready to go back but it takes time to get our routine running smoothly, so we are all looking forward to this weekend.

Shop || Charity and I did lunch and shopping on Wednesday.  It has been so nice catching up with girlfriends this week.  I picked up this book and cannot wait to read.  Written by Pierre BergĂ©, it recounts his time in Morocco with longtime partner, Yves St. Laurent, in 1966.  I LOVE a true love story and this is one for the ages.

Relax || Getting up at 6 a.m. is for the birds [literally!].  We have no real plans for this long weekend, so you can find me parked on the sofa lounging in these.  Roomy and warm with no judgement if I eat one too many cookies - just like good sweatpants should be.

Yum || Even though the chill of autumn will not reach us for months, we are still craving those comforting elements of a new season.  This delicious soup is a family favorite.  My little Sofie requested a warm bowl with french bread.  Sounds perfect.  

Fitness || I picked this DVD up many months ago and, honestly, forgot I had it.  I gave it a whirl yesterday and it means business!  I can barely move today.  I am not sure what that says about me but I am definitely going to continue using it between treadmill action.  I will let you know in 30 days....

Blog || I loved Nancy's recent post about the pull between light and dark decor.  It seems I change my desire for each with the seasons.  Light, airy rooms are made better with sunshine and darker walls seem to comfort in the chill of winter.

Have the best weekend,
