do more, buy less!
apparently, accumulating stuff is out, and investing in experiences is in. meaning: even in the current economic slump, movie sales, museum attendance, cooking (yay) and many recreational activities are up!
my favorite quote from the article is:
“now I am having fun working on projects around my house, even if it is just pulling weeds or taking my dog, Amos, for a long walk.”
seriously: how mindful — and effortlessly so — is that?
as the weekend approaches, i am trying to come up with some fun EXPERIENCES to enjoy with cara (i only have a limited time frame to lure her to the area, after all). so far, we have on our agenda:
☑ a run (cara says the temperature “feels great”). okay then.
☑ local yogurt!!!
☑ baking cupcakes
☑ maybe a yoga class?
☑ possibly a movie
☑ nasher museum? i’m sad i missed the picasso exhibit, but the warhol polaroids sound really interesting/cool.
of course, buying hasn’t lost its luster altogether
the first thing cara said when she walked into the closet was “you hardly have any clothes!” SEE, josh?
the second thing (or close to it) was, “you would love modcloth.com.” and she was right! HELLO anthro knockoffs at deeply discounted prices. while i am all for experiences, fashion friday is still fun. here are some of my favorites:
mulled wine dress, $52.99
hot off the press dress, $49.99
city snowstorm dress, $49.99
rain-belt bright dress, $47.99
i love how the names are even anthro-esque! i would definitely try ordering from modcloth in the future. my only concern is that the S-M-L sizing, but if little cara has had success, i should be able to as well.
workout: 30 minutes yoga for runners from yogadownload. they are having a 40% off sale, by the way, until january 11!
cuisine central: none — i was at an applicant dinner! i just can’t QUITE whip out my camera in that setting.
reading: while in clinic waiting for patients, i read most of the january issue of peds in review, including articles on heart failure, vaccines in the immunocompromised, and some cases.
