happy weekend!

I started my day by blasting Edith Piaf + eating a toasted bagel with lots of cream cheese.

Normally I start my weekdays by getting up at 5, having a quick cup of coffee and a snappy breakfast, and running out the door in a haphazard fashion attempting to look like a teacher. Today is no ordinary weekday.

I HAVE THE DAY OFF! [Insert loud cheering, vuvuzelas, the works.]

Time for more Ms. Piaf and leisurely coffee before I run, clean, and lesson plan. That’s my least favorite part of being a grad student (or… an adult?)– even when you have a day off, there are always things to do. But this morning is all mine, I declare!

I leave you with some links for weekend entertainment, crafting, cooking, + fashion. lv, molly

9 perfect fall outfits. I wish I could wear them all + that they didn’t cost an arm and a leg. My friend Janna calls Anthropologie “The Apologie.” Get it?

Brown Butter Tortellini. This sounds like the perfect simple fall comfort food. Yum!

Creative Pet Costumes via Martha Stewart (who else?). I can’t decide if I should be embarrassed for these little dogs, their owners, or myself because I find myself smiling at all of these pictures.

Read a book by Mario Vargas Llosa– the recent recipient of the Nobel Prize for Literature. I haven’t read any of his work yet, but this weekend might be the perfect time for a looksee.

French Onion Soup with Gruyere, sans beef stock! Nom nom nom.

Make jam! I used to make it as a kid with my mom, and I’m tempted to try it solo this weekend.

Cute gray ankle booties. If I had slimmer ankles + a strong desire to wear ankle boots, these would be the winners.

The NYT Magazine’s Eating Well Issue. It looks brilliant! (And it’s the source of the pictures in this post.)

And lastly… more cool dogs with potentially weird owners.
