Weekend Wrap-Up (ahh, downtime!)

After last weekend's trip to TX and back, I've been looking forward to this weekend and the opportunity to sleep in since Monday.

Of course, Friday I found that I would not be able to sleep in on Saturday after all. Riley is going to participate in her school's Rockin for the Arts fundraiser, and we had a band meeting Saturday morning at nine. *sigh* Then Sylvia got invited to a party so Saturday didn't exactly go as planned.

Sunday (so far) is going the way I want. I'm watching Emmy coverage all day (well, while doing other things) because I am an awards show junkie. I'm totally excited about Neil Patrick Harris hosting.

I don't watch the Emmy favorites, Mad Men or 30 Rock, so I try not to get emotionally involved in who wins or loses these awards shows (but I really really wish Project Runway would win Best Reality Competition). Still, I'm hooked.

I hope you'll read my latest LA Moms post on homework. I will have more to write on the subject throughout the school year, I'm sure.

Earlier this week, I had the pleasure of lunching with Aparna from Parentella, the really funny Jessica Gottlieb, fellow LA Moms bloggers/friends Sarah Auerswald and Elise Crane Derby, Lolita Carrico, and Marsha Collier, whose accomplishments are so impressive! We had a blast, and I'm still in awe of sitting at the same table with these amazing ladies.

I also had Back to School Night for Riley's school. That's a whole post in itself.

Lots on my mind lately. Can't wait to share more.

Happy National Unmarried and Singles Week!

Ooh, how fun for Riley! I felt the same way about this weekend, we had NO previous engagements and that was nice. Not that I don't enjoy being busy, but after four straight weeks of it, it was nice just to chill.

I just started watching Project Runway this season and I love it.

Yeah definitely fun for Riley. Sadly I can't really get into the awards shows but I was glad Neil Patrick Harris was hosting too.

How exciting to see so many amazing moms!!

All in all it still sounds like a more-laid-back weekend than you have had for awhile, and I am glad for you. : )

wait, are you telling me there is a whole week dedicated to people like me? Single, unattached? Wow, who'd have thought

Sounds like a nice weekend and an amazing lunch! Look forward to reading more about what's been going on.
