Of Note — May 25
We had so much fun in Poughkeepsie celebrating our sweet Coco last weekend. She graduated, has a job starting in June, and is just an all-around all star. We had gorgeous weather on Friday and Sunday, but it poured all day on Saturday — perfect for her outdoor graduation ceremony. It didn't matter though; we were thrilled to cheer her on even in the rain (and luckily her sister had suggested taking pictures the night before, so we've got lots of lovely photos that are dry!). I just love my family so much, so last weekend really set up a lovely week.
I am reading The Hating Game by Sally Thorne. It's taking a bit of time to get into it, but it was recommended by some blog or another and has a pretty good rating on GoodReads, so I imagine it will pick up soon. Also still working on all the paperbacks on my bedside table (The Body Book, A Gentleman in Moscow, and Citizen of the World.
I think the only thing I've watched all week is the Royal Wedding on repeat, and probably some episodes of Shark Tank. I still read a ton about pop culture and listen to lots of podcasts, but for a girl who in high school found a way to watch like 10 different network TV shows, I'm watching shockingly little these days.
To the official album of the Royal Wedding on Spotify! It's a lovely way to relive the day without getting completely distracted by watching the video. I did realize though that they've taken William and Catherine's wedding album off of Spotify, and I am quite upset about that. I guess I'll just...have to watch their wedding on the DVD of it that I own. (I'm a nerd.)
Out a lot! I still haven't been to the grocery store since I got back from New York — whoops. But I have shared some good meals with friends this week, so I am enjoying that aspect of throwing all my money at Franklin Street eating establishments.
All things Royal Wedding, Chipotle tacos, visiting the FDR Library & Museum, the cover of Michelle Obama's forthcoming memoir, the blue floral bomber jacket I got from Rent the Runway unlimited, lobster ravioli, introducing my dad to Desert Island Discs, white tulips.
