Happy weekend! I hope wherever you are in the world, the weather is better than it currently is here in New York. This has been the gloomiest start to the month of May that I can ever remember. But, alas, life goes on, and this weekend, in addition to hosting a shabbat dinner at our home last night with a couple families we were randomly matched with by our synagogue — side note: it was surprisingly fun hosting a dinner party for strangers! — we also have two kid birthday parties, and on Sunday night Drew and I are going out to celebrate 13 years since our blind date that started it all (I was in my 20s! Drew still had black hair!).
I took the day off yesterday in part to get ready for our dinner, but mostly to go shopping. I have three events I need dresses for: a fundraising gala Drew and I are going to in a couple weeks; my close friend‘s memorial in a month; and my BFF’s big gay wedding on summer solstice. For weeks I’ve been ordering dresses and trying them on at home and then sending them back because they don’t work. I finally decided this was an inefficient way of doing things and I just needed to carve some time to shop, which is what I did yesterday morning. Unfortunately, the results were the same (nothing looked good on me) but with the added demoralization of having this confirmed by salespeople, as well as eating up a few of the only child-free hours in my week, so blah to all that. I went home and ordered a couple more dresses from online to try. They’ll probably look dumb on me.
Anyway, since I didn’t get around to doing Friday Links yesterday, here’s a single link I thought you might enjoy:
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
