Happy weekend!  After being busier than usual last weekend, I’m looking forward to a little more downtime today and tomorrow.  We have a Farmer’s Market lunch planned with a few friends today, as well as dinner with my coworkers.  And then tomorrow we’ll be watching the Super Bowl and stuffing our faces! 

Another good reason for this weekend being a little more low key?  Our annul team meeting.  That means lots of meetings and fun dinners out.  It also means my days and nights will be packed.  Not sure how often I’ll blog next week, but I hope to pop in a couple of times at the very least.  We’ll see!

Now that I’ve adequately filled you in, here are a few of my favorite reads from the week.  Enjoy!
