I’m sorry, lovelies. I don’t have a Friday Five for you this week. I wanted to do a Photoshop tutorial for a question Sam raised earlier in the week, but I just didn’t have the energy last night to do anything but lay in bed. I thought rather than doing a Friday Five and quickly try to pull 5 things together at random that I wasn’t genuinely excited over, or do a Photoshop tutorial and not give it my all, I’d wait until next week when I got my stride back. I’m sorry. I feel like I’m letting myself down. I almost wasn’t going to post anything today, but I wouldn’t let myself break my 5-a-week blogging streak. It’s a silly, self-imposed expectation.
Today I’m seeing a Van Gogh exhibit at the Art Museum with my mom, and tonight Boyfriend and I are finally getting to meet his friends’ new baby. This Saturday is the bi-annual flea market I wait for with rabid excitement (Jennifer, this was the one I was talking about!). It snuck up on me this year but I’m very excited to go scavenge for some antique treasure. Maybe a dresser I can repaint? On Sunday, my oldest niece turns 8 (8!, oh my gosh), and I can’t believe the same little baby I rushed out of my AP English exam in high school to go see in the hospital when she was born (my dad texted me, in all caps, “IT’S A GIRL!”) is now a sassy, soon-to-be 2nd grader. I bought her a hardcover, special edition copy of The Phantom Tollbooth, but still need to pick up something else for her.
In lieu of something more substantial, I’ll leave you with these two gorgeous photographs of Paris. I know I’ve had a tendency to make a bigger deal out of going to Paris than the rest of Belgium, but I am seriously ecstatic over the whole trip. In case you weren’t sure.
Happy weekend, kiddos. What are you up to?
