Happy Friday!  My week’s been a quick one.  I came back from a fun weekend trip to Houston with my sister on Monday evening, and since then I’ve been catching up on sleep and a long to-do list.

Houston’s a massive city with more to do than we ever could’ve accomplished in four days, but my sister and I managed to get a lot done.

We hit up the Museum of Fine Arts which had the coolest shape-shifting shadow exhibit:

We found the best Mexican food ever (we knew we were in the right place when handmade tortillas were flying through the air right by the front door):

And we stumbled upon a fabulous local brewery (where $12 gets you three craft beers… unheard of, right?)

 

It was such a nice break from routine, and a great chance to spend some time with one of my best friends.

Tonight I’m headed to the Sox game with family and friends – I wouldn’t even call myself a fair-weather fan, I’m really in it for the social aspect (people-watching and overpriced beers).  And tomorrow I’m excited to catch up with some friends from high school.

What’s on your schedule?

P.S. Here are a few of my favorite things from around the web this week:

The trailer for Caitlyn Jenner’s new docu-series, “I Am Cait.”

Ed Sheehan’s take on “Trap Queen” (a must-watch).

Cooking tips from your favorite celebrity chefs.

I’m almost done with this beach read, reminds me a lot of Gone Girl (which is the only instance I can remember when I liked a movie better than the book!)

Love this advice: “forget about likability.”
