Weekend collage

Happy Monday, B!

So glad that your new no-poo shampoo is working! Your hair looks awesome!

I went to a work event last week to hear Charlotte Moss speak about interior design. She has a new book coming out this fall about scrapbooking which sounds mildly interesting. I'm not a scrapbooker by any means, but it did inspire me to put a collage together of my weekend for you!

Oh, you wanna know what it all means? Ok...

I got my hair cut (chopped really) in an effort to get rid of my unruly layers and start growing my hair out all at one length. I took this photo of Emily Blunt as my inspiration. I wish the result was a little more Emily Blunt, but it'll do for now. Then I met Lil' Q at the Shake Shack in Dupont where I had still not eaten. It was DELISH! Thank you for exporting! Lil' Q came over for a sleepover (since Jeff was with Nick and the guys at the shore all weekend) and we caught up on trashy TV, including the new ABC series 'Scandal' which I of course am now adding to DVR... cause I need another show. At least it takes place in DC!

Lil' Q and I rode out to Leesburg to meet our cousins S and S and our friend J to do a little shopping at the outlets there. Since there isn't a radio in the Jeep, Lil' Q  acted as our DJ and picked the tunes, including 'Home' by Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros. I had heard the song before and liked it, but never seen the video (No, I didn't watch the video while I was driving). The way the vocalists speak to each other in the song reminds me of Johnny Cash and June Carter which I love. I also got this cute blue skirt at the JCrew outlet. Yummy. On my way home from dropping Lil' Q off, I heard this interesting piece on NPR based on a New Yorker article about nostalgia and the 'Forty-Year Itch', really interesting if you have time to read it. Then Saturday night, I met up with DH to catch a showing of 'Salmon Fishing in the Yemen' at E Street. It was really good and we both enjoyed it. Then home to read more of Jeffrey Eugenides' new-ish book 'The Marriage Plot'. Loving it.

I loved the piece on CBS Sunday Morning about The Black Keys. They're so damn likable! I've had them on my iPod for a while, but started listening to them again yesterday (not even the most recent album) and fell in love with them again. At noon, I met CDub at Paul on Penn which I had been dying to try and it didn't disappoint! We'll have to go next time you're in town. Then off to Anthro to browse where I fell in love with this flea market book. The pictures are amazing. Gotta add that to my pinterest books board. DH, I know you're reading this, sign up for pinterest right now! I also stopped by Forever 21 where I had a store credit and time to kill before Jeff got home. I got that cute lil' maxi dress and the hot pink necklace above. I love a $16 dress! Then home to watch 60 Minutes (the emeralds!) and Mad Men before putting this busy weekend to rest!

Whew! How was YOUR weekend!?!?

  1. Oh Lady D! Soul mate status strikes again - I did a Scandal marathon yesterday (I've been saving it) and it's goooood... We haven't had a good saucy drama in a while so it's def DVR worthy. Also loved The Marriage Plot and want a full debrief when you finish! xo Lori
