Weekend Open Thread

This morning, as I walked Jackson to his second day of preschool, there was a clear crispness in the air. Fall is coming! While we had a pretty nice summer here as far as summers in NYC go, there’s just nothing better than New York City in the fall, and I’m so happy it’s upon us again.

Hope that, wherever you are this weekend, the weather is wonderful and the company grand. Happy Friday!

    I’m running my first marathon tomorrow! And the weather should be great, only slightly too hot but sunny. Better than what it could have been, considering they’ve already gotten snow a couple of times near the start of the race.

      Guys, I finished! And I wasn’t dead last. And, now to retire from marathon running to go back to half marathons. Marathoners are crazy!

    Spring is finally in the air! Our winter wasn´t terribly cold, but I am soooo over storms!
    I just went to pick up my kitten, she got spayed today so I´m waiting for the grogginess to wear off to spoil her (even more than usual).

        Ooohh hola JK! One of my faves! You know it is embarrassing how often I basically forget that countries have seasons at different times.

    I can’t wait for fall weather! It’s too hot to wear boots and tights. September/October has some of the nicest weather around here, and doesn’t cool down til after Halloween most of the time. I bought a new coat and I’m itching to wear it! Until then, cotton everything!

    First week of my new job is over! I shall celebrate by going grocery shopping, followed by date night. Me and Bassanio have had opposite schedules all week, so it’ll be nice to finally have a night to ourselves…
    .
    And fall better get here soon! I don’t want to keep coming into the office as a sweaty mess.

    Yippee for fall! My favorite season ever! I was so excited to wear a sweater to work today. Also, my work crush (whose got a girlfriend so relax) complimented my sweater. It made me feel good and it also made me day dream about him breaking up with his girlfriend and then living happily ever after with me. Anyhooo, have a good weekend! I can’t wait for our meetup on Sunday.

    Today’s weather is perfect. I’m wearing a light sweater and ankle boots. I feel so Fall fashionable today and I love it.

      I don’t why this reminds me of that scene in Miss Congeniality when they ask Miss (which state was it?) to describe her ideal date and she says something like “March 18, because it’s not too cold, and not too hot, you just need a light jacket”. … Except I completely just made up that quote when I PROBABLY could have googled it and gotten in verbatim. That’s a movie that I’ve seen 100 times. Other movies I’ve seen a shit ton of times: Fargo, Groundhogs Day, A League of Their Own, A Few Good Men, and Mean Girls. I think I have all of those movies memorized (loosely)

    Where I live Fall is here!! low 70s and sunshine all weekend. Jeans and boots and my vegan leather moto jacket that is so sexy and I barely got to wear last year because I bought it on discount in the middle of winter and it was too cold! Anyways my boyfriend is at a Bach party in Miami this weekend, and I am really excited to have just a weekend to chill. We have had stuff the past 3 weekends in and out of town, and it will be so nice to relax. I am having a totally girl-filled weekend as my best friend’s boyfriend is also at a Bach Party and she will actually be around and going out for once!! Tomorrow night one of the wineries is hosting a band and people go and bring picnics and just get sloshed and Sunday I am going hiking with my pup and to a huge bbq/live music event at a local restaurant 🙂 Tonight is another girls night with a live outdoor concert, last of the summer followed by drinks on a patio somewhere because it is so incredibly gorgeous out! Super excited. I also think I am going to do some hardcore baking tomorrow-pumpkin things and maybe catch the tail end of peach season around here and go out to pick some peaches and bake a pie!
