Instead of....

Instead of doing my stats homework, I had a movie night with my fabulous "Thursday" friends. We watched- {It was fantastic. We laughed. We almost cried. We fell in love actually.}


Instead of working on my h.r. case study, I went out to lunch and movie with Jess on Saturday. We saw- {Who would have thought that the dollar theater would show an international movie? We didn't know "Coco Before Chanel" was going to be in French, but it was very interesting. Definitely not what I expected.}


Instead of reading for budgeting, I talked to Alyson and she showed me- {Really cute story - more for the mom reading the story than the child listening.}


Instead of studying for nonprofit finance, I started reading- {Still only about a third of the way through, but beautiful story so far.}


Instead of discussing public policy, my "Thursday" friends and I had round two of "show & tell" - I showed off a couple things, one of them being- {Should be required reading for everyone who feels like they never finish their "to do" lists!}


Instead of going to bed on time, I indulged in- {Quirky, powerful, and incredible cute. Hugh Dancy did a fantastic job in this unconventional love story.}


Instead of running errands, I sang along with- {Okay, I wasn't really singing, but Ellie was while Hill and I caught up. Great night, great food, great company.}


Somewhere in the middle of all the "instead of's" I did do some homework. Truth be told, it was a more balanced week. I cooked. I went to the gym. I did school work. I did a few things I actually wanted to do. Crazy - I know! Fingers crossed for this week to be the same--

Wow! Thanks for all the reading suggestions! I will always go to your blog when I'm ready to read a new book, you've got a great list of them! I will try all of these books, especially the children's book. Thanks!

I liked Adam too. Really cute. And yes, I'm going to have to get my hands on that hotel book. It looks really good. Congrats on taking time for fun in grad school. That really is an accomplishment...

Keep me posted on the Bitter and Sweet book. The title is intriguing. I just finished the book I was reading and am looking for a new one.

Um, I too sang along to Letter Factory this week. I love that show. I can credit most of my child's intelligence to it. Can't wait to see you on Monday!
