What I’m Making This Weekend. Smitten Kitchen’s Tiramisu with store bought lady fingers, because I’m not a martyr.

What I’m Trying Out. I’ve never been much for keeping a journal.  But Hitha raves about this guided Five Minute Journal, so I bought one.  Maybe it will help with my insomnia?

What I’m Reading. I needed something light post-bar exam, so I picked up The Princess Diarist. So funny.

    My first question about the Jameis Winston story is why on earth someone thought it was a good idea to have him speak to elementary school kids.

    SSC- I know, right!!!!! The man is an accused rapist, previously suspended for hollering obnoxious comments about women from a table top in the middle of the student union. He has a bad habit of “forgetting to pay” and has been questioned regarding property damages in Tallahassee. This man is NOT a role model! That PR rep needs to be suspended!

    Who is asking Jameis Winston to speak anywhere, much less to kids? He’s awful.

    Those Splendid shoes are great! It’s 80 degrees in Austin today – I wish I had these to wear tonight!

    Thank you for doing the correction! There is a big difference between waterproof and not; unfortunately I have been unlucky enough to have lived in a climate where it mattered.
