staying in this weekend?...

...need something to do? here are six items on my list this weekend...

1. pour yourself a hefty glass of wine (or brew some tea) and start reading through this.
what katie ate is a beautiful site with lots of gorgeous photography and food.


2.check out fumi koike's bright and colorful work at
 i am obsessed with her use of color and a simple background.

visit her at flickr as well
Life as a Dog by Fumi Koike

3. visit the cutest animal related site on the web. zooborns posts weekly.

4. get inspired. take a look at some unconventional uses for lufa.
your showers will never be the same.

5. watch a funny movie- the mayo clinic suggests,
"laughter fires up and then cools down your stress response
and increases your heart rate and blood pressure, producing a good,
relaxed feeling." plus, who doesn't love a good laugh?
need helping picking out a movie?

push on...

i celebrated my 27th birthday this past weekend. i was quite dreading this particular birthday. 27 sounds so...well, old. however the day came and went and frankly i don't feel any different. i think that is how birthdays always go, right? i spent the week celebrating here and there. wednesday, ruth and i went to screen on the green, a dc summer tradition, and watched one of my all time favorites it happened one night. thursday was reserved for birthday errands with lauren and friday- dinner and drinks with kate at one of my favorites, hanks oyster bar. saturday, matt and i went to the national gallery of art to see this show and then of course- birthday party saturday night. busy, busy, busy. 
oh hello, 27.
