Well this weekend was Atlantic City centered, not NYC. Dental Student headed down to the Shore with his college friends for some gambling and yummy eats. AC is a 2 hour car, bus or train ride from NYC and a nice get-away. I stayed home with the Havi-nator and crossed things off the to-do list. Which is about to lead to a spattering of meanderings...
First of all, Havi and I decided to utilize my degree in Public Relations and Social Media and expand the blog a little more. We started a Two Grad Students and a Pittie Facebook Page. We only uploaded our information and some pics so far, but please "like" us and well work on expanding and making it fun all week, seriously - were the only Like so far! I know I promised a while ago we'd fancy up the blog, and Kate at Twenty-Six To Life is quite the inspiration. It's definitely on the to-do list. We love CBS Sunday Morning in this house, and they inspred us as well, because they did a segment on blogs yesterday, especially our (okay, just mine) favorite wedding blog, Style Me Pretty.
I just finished reading Firefly Lane by Kristin Hannah with the Best Friend. I loved it. It was a well-written tale of two unlikely best friends. I usually don't like airy, light reads, which I assumed this was. However, it was very well-written with great detail, and I found that I couldn't put it down! I also favor stories of friendship over romance, and this certainly appealed to that. Feel free to friend me on GoodReads, which I have chatted about before!
I saw Midnight in Paris this weekend. I know what you're thinking - how many movies have we seen?! Well, since finals ended four weeks ago I've seen Something Borrowed, Bridesmaids, Hangover 2, X-Men: First Class, and now Midnight in Paris. I can't help it - I LOVE a huge Diet Coke and a big screen. Especially with LivingSocial Fandago deals where you get two tickets for $9.00 (it is usually $15.00 for one ticket in NYC)! I loved Midnight, it was totally vintage Woody Allen. Owen Wilson's character loves Paris in the 1920s and magically gets transported there. Rachel McAdams plays a quite unlikable character - which is a nice change for her! The only warning is you need a bit of classical literature and art knowledge to appreciate some of the references.
Lastly, I use a 2-year-old Nikon camera to take pictures for this blog, Facbeook, and my scrapbooks. Dental Student is in the market for a camera for his Dental portfolio. I was thinking of giving him mine, and getting a new one. I really want to start taking higher quality photographs and am in the market for a new camera. I need suggestions for a reasonably-priced camera for a budding photog. I know so many of you are amateur photographers - so I need your help!
I think that's everything I had to say, my head is a very busy place!
Here comes Monday...!
