Yayyyyy Friday!!!! I made this bicycle necklace last night, and I'm in love. I bought the pendant about a year ago (when I went to Michael's around Halloween time to buy materials for my ill-fated owl costume, which was never worn) but never sat down and necklace-ified it. Story: Last night I was all set to go home and watch Ugly Betty and do the dishes, but K called me as I was driving home and said that he was going to watch the Braves game with his pal J&co., so I switched up my plans. I got an American Flatbread frozen pizza, drove to the mall to buy a couple of light girlie movies (Bridget Jones' Diary, 27 Dresses, Good Luck Chuck), ended up leaving with a new pair of black Mary Janes (!), which will tide me over until I get a t-strap pair, and curled up in my pajamas with pizza and wine for a quiet night in. Then I got a surprise invite to make jewelry with J's wife M and her ladyfriend, so I went and drank a fancy cocktail (lemon-ginger-infused vodka with maple syrup and pears), made three necklaces, and was totally inspired to get crafty more often. M had an insane collection of jewelry-making materials--beads, feathers, antique chains and pendants, gold leaf... everything you could possibly imagine! She plans to sell some of her jewelry, so be on the lookout if you live around VT!

I am really excited for this weekend! K and I are going apple picking tomorrow (yay!) and I'm having some lady friends over in the evening, then brunch & a big music event to raise awareness about climate change on Sunday (which my dad and brother have been organizing). Too bad I don't have a long weekend--there is so much to do and so little time!!
