Meet my twin sister, the one who looks nothing like me. We’ll be hanging out this weekend, most likely moaning about our classes and how much we miss summer.

Some Things 8.17.12

I’ve put a different spin on my usual weekend link packs. As a person who loves things to be organized and categorized, I’m liking this new way a lot better. I’ve organized my favorites from this week into categories. They’ll probably differ week to week, but generally they’ll be organized by what I’ve read, looked at, and loved.Hope you all have a terrific weekend!

Happy Friday!

Friday’s almost here! Tomorrow is a day that I’ve been simultaneously dreading and looking forward to at the same time. It is my last day of work here in Atlanta. It’s been truly lovely working here this summer. I was a little apprehensive about being the new person all over again, but I’ve worked with some really great people this summer. A few were not so great, but overall, it’s been a great experience and I’m sad to leave.

I’ve also been looking forward to this particular Friday because Mark and I are squeezing in one last beach weekend before school starts. He and I will be heading south to Florida for a few days of sunshine, sand, and good food. I’m so happy it has worked out for us to do this. We thought our plans might get cancelled all together earlier this week, but things have kept falling into place for one more summer weekend so after 5pm, we will be beach-bound.

I hope your weekend is just as lovely. Here are a few things I’ve enjoyed across the web this week:

They included things like hand soap, wipes, a certain size tissue box, colored pencils, fat Crayola crayons or skinny Crayloa crayons (depending on what grade you were in), pencils, other boring stuff, etc.

But then there was the list that you had in your head. It was the list of must have items that you just couldn’t survive the school year without.
