Countdown of Things

We made it to Friday again.  I had a great and productive week.  I've been working hard at fighting the urge to go to sleep at 7:00 PM.  This weekend is going to be pretty busy because I'm jumping on a flight back to the motherland on Sunday for a super quick work trip.  I have no idea if I'll be showing up on my blog next week because my schedule will be a little bit hectic.  I figured I'd show up today and use this little countdown post that I've seen a few places - maybe changed a little bit.

5 Things that are happening this Weekend:

1.  Tonight, we are heading to see American Authors, The Mowglis and Oh Honey in the city.  The tickets were super cheap and it will be fun to get out and see some live music.

2.  Pancake breakfast.  I've been talking about it for weeks and every weekend, it doesn't happen.  We are having pancakes at some point this weekend - NON NEGOTIABLE.

3.  Pulling out my winter clothes because flying to Minnesota means dealing with snow next week.

4.  A drink or two in Hoboken, because why not?

5.  A play date with my Bulldog niece once I land on Sunday.  That comes with wedding talk with my future sister in law and my mom.  Quick trips home for work are hectic, but I love having a little time to hang with the family.

4 Things I liked from the Internet this week:

I made this One-Pot Caprese Pasta Dinner this week and it was AHmazing.
This view of Central Park with the changing leaves.  It's so beautiful.
I read this blog this week about moods and Mondays.  I ended up pinning this quote because I love it.
I loved Amber's List of 22 Not-So-Simple Blog Topics.

3 Things I'd like to own:

One of the vintage trailers featured in this articlethis candle or any from that Etsy shop and another one of these comfy sweatshirts from Old Navy

1 Song that I'm listening to:

Have a great weekend!


  1. Have the best night ever! That sounds like so much fun!

  2. Omgosh! That quote! I absolutely love it. I'm notorious for going into Mondays with a bad attitude. This really puts it into perspective....

    You BETTER get pancakes this weekend.

  3. That's an amazing shot of Central Park.

    My attitude towards Tuesdays sucks...Mondays I'm fine with.

    Have a great weekend!

  4. Love that Saturdaze shirt - too cute! And that pasta looks incredible!

  5. That pasta caprese looks amazingggg :) I'm hungry now! Enjoy your weekend- even though it'll be a quick visit, definitely sounds like some fun! I love those snuggly lil pups of yours!!!

  6. I WANT PANCAKES TOO!!!! Dog pics are my fave too. :)

  7. Mmmm.....always a good time for pancakes. Also, Hoboken has some good bars and eateries there.

  8. How was Minnesota... and where'd you end up in Hoboken? I haven't been over there since this summer.
