Weekend Recap / Rue + Gap / NYC

Wednesday, September 05, 2012

I am so glad I stayed in Chicago for the long weekend. Buddy was supposed to stay with my friend Gina and her pup/his girlfriend Minnie. Poor Minnie was sick which would have been awful for everyone involved. Avoiding the stress of traveling was exactly what I needed. Went to dinner, out with friends, to a jazz festival, worked out, and finished the long weekend at a rooftop party with my CrossFit people. Great view, good friends, and amazing food.

I decided within the past few months that I'll try almost anything and tried (and loved) scallops this weekend. I did give up most non-paleo foods but am much more open than I used to be.

We have a shoot with Rue and Gap this afternoon. Kind of nervous because I really belong behind the camera and not in front of it, but you can look for us in the next issue of Rue Magazine! Think good thoughts for me.

Getting in one last workout at CrossFit this morning before we head to NYC for NYFW tomorrow. I dreamed of going to just one fashion show and we're going to four. I didn't make it to Paris before turning 30 (although I'm determined to make it happen in '12) but a trip to NYFW the week before my birthday isn't so bad. We booked a few shoots for The Everygirl and will get to meet a few favorite bloggers. We'll be sharing lots of photos so I hope you'll follow us on Twitter and Instagram.

  Here's a little recap from our trip last November. (My hair is so much longer now!)


A few things that I'll be bringing on our trip.

I know I've done a terrible job keeping up with the blog lately and I'm determined to get better. Things have just been so busy with my graphic design projects, The Everygirl, working out, and of course, spending time with friends on the weekends (and after work, too). Thanks for hanging in there!

How was your long weekend? Did you do anything fun/exciting? And who will be in NYC this weekend?

  8. So glad you had such a great weekend! Mine was lovely too--and included flying in a WWII biplane on a pretty darn awesome date.

    BTW: I ended up taking a risk on a Tracy Reese dress from that sale you posted about recently. It arrived yesterday, and boy did that risk pay off! Love it! So, thank for sharing!
