Weekend Wrap Up
What a lovely weekend it has been! Although we are approaching the second week of September, Mother Nature is gifting us here in the northeast with sunny skies and 70+degree temperatures…perfection. It would have been a great day for autumnal activities like apple-picking and pie-baking, but instead I spent the afternoon at the pool, splashing about and reading in the sun.
And, although not my primary goal, going to the pool was also a great way to not be home for football. Interestingly, The Mister (who is Canadian) loves football and says it is very un-American of me to not adore it. Truth be told I have made an effort to learn a bit about the game so that I can sort-of understand what is going on when I do watch a game...for example, I know what 'moving the chains' and 'calling an audible' mean. But really, I think that if football involved people wearing sequins and using jazz-hands, I would be more interested. This sums up how I feel about football season.
But, although we are a divided household when it comes to football (and showtunes), The Mister and I did agree that it would be a fun idea to re-watch every episode of Twin Peaks. We are just wrapping up season one and I had forgotten how much I absolutely loved that show! So surreal, so dark yet quirky, and such a great David Lynch-look at the dark underbelly of small town life. And the fashion-lover in me thinks the styling is just brilliant – it's like the 90's grunge phase and the conservative 50's looks had a love-child and left it in Twin Peaks.
It almost has me excited for the change-over to my fall and winter wardrobe with its darker colors, big cozy sweaters and wool pencil skirts. But until then, I am going to enjoy this week's nice weather and be outside in it as much as possible.
Here's hoping it's sunny where you are!Meghan xo
