Ever-Changing Reflection

Your pain is the breaking of the shell that encloses your understanding... It is the bitter potion by which the physician within you heals your sick self. Therefore trust the physician, and drink his remedy in silence and tranquility.
~ Kahlil Gibran

It's Friday, let's party!

I am so glad it's Friday, and the weekend is here! After a week of being anti-social and hiding in the house (for the reason, read this post), I am going out tonight with these lovely people, who happen to be my best friends...

That is my BFF Ollie, her husband and Jed. We are heading to Good Times Pub, a local joint right down the street we've been meaning to try. Pub food, drinkie drinks and some live music. Couldn't ask for a better Friday night!

Now, for the rest of you, I have my five weekend picks...

Go out and buy...
... so you can join Carrie's book club. I'm hoping I can get my hands on it soon and start reading because I'd love to join in the first month! We all know Pride and Prejudice, a classic, but have you ever imagined it with zombies?!?! How fun!



Visit your local theater to see...
This movie, starring Jennifer Garner, is about a writer who lives in a world where lying doesn't exist. Until, that is, he discovers the little white lie and the huge elephant lie, and he starts... *gasp!*... lying! Sounds like it could be pretty funny, with a good moral attached.



Type...
.com into your browser (or click the image) to find yard sales in your neighborhood. How cool is this??? It uses Google maps and an online database to present you the bargain, outdoor outlets in your area! It's supposed to rain here this weekend, so I don't think I'll find too many, but you might have better luck in your neck of the woods.



Head to the mall...
... and find your Halloween costume. It's right around the corner, folks, and it will sneak up on you like a Jane Austen zombie before you know it! While some may be creative enough to come up with their own amazing costumes at home with mad DIY skills, I will be going to the Halloween store at the mall (or online). Jed and I are thinking of Fred and Wilma Flintstone -- we have two parties to go to Halloween night -- which is what I wanted to do last year. But, I also really like the Woody and Jesse costumes, which we could DIY with some store-bought accessories. {And it would give me a good excuse to run right out and buy my cowboy boots!}



Brave the basement/attic/back of the closet...
... and pull out your warm clothes for this cool weather we've been having! Sweaters, scarves, hats, boots... I need it all, and my cold-weather accessories are all at my parents' house still, along with my wool J.Crew coat! I'll be heading into our basement storage closet this weekend to pull out my winter clothes bins and turning them into summer clothes bins (minus the stuff I'm bringing to Palm Beach!).

Let me know what you're up to, and have a great weekend!!!

I definitely want to see that movie... I think some friends and I are going to catch a double feature tonight: Toy Story 1 and 2 in 3d! It's fun to be a kid sometimes :) Happy weekend!!
