Happy Friday, friends! I am soaking up the last little bit of calm today before I start a few days of crazy travel! It will be fun, but I have a feeling that this time next week I will be VERY tired. Tomorrow morning my mom and I are going to the airport SUPER EARLY (like 5am and my dad is driving us there so we will be even earlier than necessary, most likely) to fly to Georgia to go to a cousin’s wedding! I don’t get to see this side of the family as often as I’d like (because Georgia) so I’m super excited to see everyone and hug everyone and hopefully have some really good cake. Then on Sunday, my mom will fly back to Dallas and I’ll fly off to Los Angeles! I’m going to California to attend a conference for work and I am SO PUMPED! I suggested this awesome conference that I really wanted to attend kind of jokingly to my boss because I didn’t think we’d actually get to go… but we get to go! I can’t wait to hang out with my coworkers and attend sessions and learn lots of great things! I won’t get home till Thursday evening, so it will be a busy week!
But for now, I just need to get through work, finish packing, and get to sleep early! Oh and share the 5 best things that have been on my radar this week!
ONE || If you know me at all, you know that I am pretty much OBSESSED with all things related to the State Fair of Texas. I look forward to it all year long and love learning as many fun facts and trivia as I can! On their website, they have the history of Big Tex, the mascot of the fair, his stats, and more! It’s pretty neat to learn a little more about this gigantic cowboy – check it out!
TWO || SNL has been coming out with a lot of behind the scenes videos about pictures, hair, sets, etc. and this one about wardrobe is just as fascinating as the others. There’s just so much that goes into this weekly show – so much more than I would have ever thought about!
THREE || Since I’m going to LA for a work conference, I won’t really have much free time to go out and explore… but I will have a few free hours on my first day there and I’m going to try and go to the Griffith Observatory! It was where the Planetarium song was during La La Land, and it is pretty close to where we’re staying, and I can’t wait to check it out! I looked up a list of other filming locations from the movie, and someday I’ll have to go back and find the rest!
FOUR || I really need to do some de-cluttering in my apartment, and so I’ve started watching videos on minimalism. I don’t think I will be able to go full-on with this way of living (because I’m just being realistic with myself here) but there’s so much to think about and I’m going to try an incorporate a few of the things I’ve been learning about.
FIVE || Oh my goodness. This is the best one ever. I just had to share that I got these super cute booties at Old Navy and I don’t know how but they rang up as $1.97! They were the last pair on the shelf and didn’t have a price tag, and somehow I got the world’s biggest bargain and I have been telling as many people as possible about this amazing deal!
