    im looking forward to sleeping in general! and maybe watching some movies. working on my christmas gifts [watercolors from europe, hell yah!] and maybe do some portfolio stuff. i need an internship [preferably in the northeast? yes please!] before all the others apply!
    the mochi! oh gosh, that brings me back :]

  • Mmm sleep…I am looking forward to rebooting my immune system this weekend.

    My grandfather turned 80 last month, and there’s a party on Sunday. I’m hoping it’s a good time.

  • All of that sounds so good! This weekend I am attending my best friends 30th 80′s themed birthday party dressed as a punk – good times!

  • That all sounds lovely! We are spending the weekend with a bundle of joshs friends that all just had babies

  • yessss the guac! i hope you do end up making it and like it. i get the feeling it’d be awesome with not only chips, but also naan bread. mmmm.

    i am looking forward to vegging out, catching up on food tv (i am cool), and seeing friends i don’t often get to see. oh, and cocktails. those’ll be nice.

  • I think we might take a road trip… :-)

  • sounds like a good plan to me! my weekend is starting off with a sushi dinner, a one hour couples massage, walk in the park + catching a film :) i’m really excited for 430 to come!

  • Mmmm what are those mochi things? They look really good! :) I’m also trying not to stress about tests because (thank goodness) I just finished a bunch of tests this week.

    I love that you keep exercising in the realm of your mood. Forcing yourself to exercise is a recipe for dread. That is why I try my best not to set my alarm clock to work out on weekends. I like to get up when my body is ready. That is what weekends are for, right?

    The bad news is I went to bed at 8:30 last night due a migraine (not exactly a rocking friday night!), the good news is I slept until 7:30 this morning, which means I was able to get 11 hours of sleep! Now I feel quite a bit better. Today I’m babysitting for a few hours and taking a couple of cute little kiddos to the children’s museum. Tonight, I’m seeing Tune Yards play at First Avenue. Have you heard of her? She is a musician/band that uses wacky drum and vocal looping that is crazy but also insanely catchy. I’m excited!

  • I am so bad at sleeping in. I always think maybe I can but sleeping past 8 (which is actually sleeping in for me) is so hard to pull off. haha

  • Mag

    Where did you find that cookie?! Looks delish.

  • I just returned from a two week marathon around Europe, so my Sunday was spent sorting through my things, going grocery shopping, and exercising for the first time in 15 days. it felt good.

    I hope your weekend was as relaxing as you’d hoped!

    I love Japanese mochi, especially the one you ate. :)
    Have you tried the sakura version? It’s pink:)
