This weekend was one of the first weekends in a very long time that B and I took off for both days, together at the same time. Literally zero work was done. We sat by the pool, we slept till 8 (which is late for us), we grabbed dinner with friends, we watched movies on the couch, we accidentally killed our plants. All weekend it felt like time was creeping along and it was so nice. A good weekend makes for a good week, I just know it.

Exciting news if you are going to be in Austin in August (or if you want to be in Austin in August): I’ll be speaking at the Texas Style Council Conference again this year. Currently I am 100% unprepared, so if you are attending and have any topics you want me to talk to regarding starting your own business, or really anything about entreprenuership, let me know. I am no guru, but I’ve got a few nuggets of wisdom here and there that I’m happy to pass along. Also, is it weird that I already have my outfits picked out for that weekend? Unprepared for the talk, totally prepared for wardrobe. Seems about right.  

(PS: If you are interested in attending, you can go here to sign up!)

  3. I love the dress with the jacket. Makes me want a classic denim jacket even more. Sounds your weekend was fab. I love those types of weekends. They do make for a great week.

  4. I love the texture and color of the jacket along with the dress – lovely look:) And I agree…a good weekend makes for a good week!

  5. I’m not going (sadness), but I’d be really interested to hear what it was like starting a brick-and-mortar business in a very web-based world.
