{gorgeous graffiti in Austin}

This week flew by especially quickly (probably because I spent half of it in a food coma in Austin). It was so nice getting some much-needed time with my uncle in the evenings, and I loved spending the days holed up writing at the Hotel Saint Cecilia, one of my favorite places in the world to stay. I came back to a clean house, my three sweet pups, a home-cooked meal and my loving husband, reminding me there is no better place in the world than home.

Tony’s in the latest Groundlings show on Fridays and Saturdays through Thanksgiving, so I stacked my weekend with girl’s nights and grand plans to learn how to use our new Vitamix wedding gift. I’m thisclose to finishing our Thank You notes, and have a mile-long checklist of all the places I still need to change my last name that I also need to hack away at. And we sort of stopped watching TV about six months ago when the wedding consumed our lives, so I’m going to pretend catching up on Scandal and our friend Jaimie’s new show Blindspot is mandatory homework. Maybe if I’m feeling particularly inspired, I might even attempt to tackle my hoarding problem (probably not, though). Monday is a holiday (and Tony’s birthday!), so I will see you Tuesday. Happy weekend!
