TGIF, my friend. I hope you have a beautiful weekend. Whenever anyone asks me if I have weekend plans, I just laugh and say, “Maybe next year.” I’m teaching a few voice lessons because what is a weekend anymore really? We’re supposed to have a big winter storm on Sunday, and the kids are both thrilled and disappointed because they don’t have school on Monday so they can’t have a snow day on Monday. Ah, such is life.

I am looking forward to watching Somebody Somewhere Sunday on HBO Max. I hope it doesn’t hit too close to home.

The one pair of jeans I’ve been wearing every day of the pandemic finally gave up, so I ordered some new ones, including these 90s-inspired throwbacks, which Brian said were definitely 90s, but he has forgotten what 90s jeans actually looked like because these are much better.

My current read is Once There Were Wolves by Charlotte McConaghy. As I am a sucker for anything set in Scotland, I picked it up. I’m only a little ways in, but it’s lovely.

Peloton did an Amy Winehouse series this week, so I think I’ll take this yoga class this weekend. She was my very fave.

And maybe Scarlett and I will do little baking. I made this carrot cake from Dorie Greenspan a few weeks ago for Brian’s birthday, and it’s perfect. Perfect. Don’t let the health nuts in the comments talk you out of the sugar. Trust.

Stay safe, stay sane. xo
