Welcome to your weekend, Decision making style.

Welcome to your weekend, Decision making style.

Here’s the deal. If I were forced to choose between telling you about engaging new books, cupcakes with perfectly swirled dollops of icing, or immaculate bouquets of bright flowers, then my brain would implode from the internal struggle. So, in order to keep my peace of mind, I suppose I will have to tell you where to find each of these lovely options this weekend and allow you, oh grand maker of decisions, to make the final call.

Welcome to Your Weekend: Pumpkin-caramel-ginger-fall-explosion

Welcome to Your Weekend: Pumpkin-caramel-ginger-fall-explosion

It's time to welcome fall with open arms. Actually, you should have some kind of specialty pumpkin flavored coffee concoction in one hand, so give fall an awkward yet loving side hug. The leaves may not be turning and the sweaters may still be hiding at the back of your closet, but fall is upon us. Okay, technically it doesn't officially start until September 22nd, but if you take another sip of your pumpkin-caramel-ginger-fall-explosion latte you'll feel more at ease about kicking off your harvest season celebration a little early this year.

Welcome to your Weekend: Being Uniquely You

Welcome to your Weekend: Being Uniquely You

There’s nothing more refreshing than a little self-expression. Whether it’s crafting a few lines of poetry, singing a song you would never tell your friends you like into your hairbrush microphone, or painting tiny smiling cats on your finger nails, it’s always a delight to do something that is uniquely you. Sometimes simply looking at what other people have made can inspire you, so don’t rule out browsing other people’s creations as a way to motivate yourself to get out there and get expressing.

Welcome to Your Weekend: An Awesome Odd Coupling

Welcome to Your Weekend: An Awesome Odd Coupling

The Sometimes nothing hits the spot like an odd pairing. Like a peanut butter and banana sandwich. Fusion can be incredibly refreshing. Mixing things up can result in flavors, colors, musical styles, etc. that strangely and unexpectedly complement each other. Fusing two different genres together in the entertainment world can result in unforgettable evenings on the town.

Welcome To Your weekend: Loving Local Laughs

Welcome To Your weekend: Loving Local Laughs

Much like the cast of Mary Poppins, I love to laugh. I may not sing songs about it while floating around the ceiling, but I still feel very strongly about the need for laughter. One of the best ways to ensure a solid few hours of merriment is a glorious night of stand-up comedy. For bonus laughs, get tickets to a stand up show in a real comedy club. You know, the kind with the two drink minimum. Between the tasty drinks and the contagious giggles of those around you, there will be plenty of chuckles for all.

Welcome to Your Weekend: Ice Cream, You Scream...

Welcome to Your Weekend: Ice Cream, You Scream...

If you don’t spend a heinous amount of time on the internet (like some people…cough…not me, of course…double cough) then you might not know that it’s National Ice Cream month. Here’s the scoop on National Ice Cream month: In 1984 Ronald Reagan said “Hey, Americans, you love ice cream more than just about anything else. Let’s give it its very own month and have some festivals and stuff.” Alright, I’m paraphrasing. I’m sure that sounded much more eloquent and presidential when he said it. Anyways, July was chosen for its position ...
