And if you want me I'm your country.

Ah, Friday. Fridays are always so lovely, aren't they? I almost feel like my Friday started as soon as I left work on Thursday.

I went to see the film Crazy Heart with Jaime and Erica. GREAT movie. Jeff Bridges has always been a talented actor - but nowhere has it shined more than here as aging, alcoholic country singer Bad Blake. His performance gave me chills, and I won't be surprised to see him take home the Best Actor Academy Award for it next month.

Last night I also recieved a few e-mails from Jesse, who landed safely in Australia for the Soundwave Festival. After a 14-hour flight, I was really excited to hear from him! He's on the other side of the WORLD. This morning he called me via the free Skype iPhone application and we got to talk for a few minutes. He was heading to bed as I was getting up for work! Not going to lie: it's the little things. Hearing his voice totally made my day!

And my smile continues to shine bright because I made a frugal designer purchase! I bought a LAMB ultraviolet wristlette via the invite-only shopping site Gilt. Oh, would you like to see it?

I'm in love! LOVE! I've been desiring a LAMB bag in that color since I saw them previewed last year. It was only $39. Boom - bought! I can't wait to go out dancing this spring/summer and slipping all my necessities in that neon bit of beauty.

Would you like to get in on the LAMB sale and need an invite? HERE YOU GO - CLICK HERE! The LAMB sale ends at midnight on Sunday, 02/21 - but the merch goes fast. The site has some great sales every day - though I only keep my eyes peeled for my favourite labels - like LAMB, of course! Sign up, and have fun.

And the rest of the day promises loveliness implicit in the fact that it's FRIDAY - the weekend begins! Tonight I hope for a little Jesse video chatting, some relaxing, perhaps a DVD or two. More fun on the horizon for the rest of the weekend as my friend Jim will be performing with his improv group at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theater and I'm excited for my super nerdy book club meeting!

What are you up to this weekend? And how awesome is my latest purchase - you cannot deny!


  1. The main thing I'm doing this weekend is going to the wedding fair with my newly engaged friend. Then I'm off to hang out with one of my friends from my uni days. Looking forward to both. Tonight I'm staying in with a bottle of rose.

    That wrislette is very cool - I had no idea what one actually WAS until I saw the picture!

  2. You, my friend, are enabler and I am a weak, weak girl.

    But I'm so excited for something pretty to come in the mail now!

  3. I just got myself a b-day LAMB bag, woo-hoo!

    Thanks for the link. :)

  4. Awesome color bag! This weekend I went on the hunt for the perfect nail polish shade, where did you find the mint-like one?
