Weekly Happiness

Ahh! It’s Fall! It’s Autumn! It’s the best time of year! Check out last year’s list of activity ideas for this magical season (or see Spring’s, you stunning southern beauties). Get a jump start on your celebrating!

I’ve made sure to spend time with my friends this last week of Summer. On Thursday, a bunch of my favorites met up at a really relaxed tavern in Baltimore. It was the perfect end of summer blowout, and yes, it involved twerking. Below you can see the three important steps for twerking. 1) Try, fail, fall, + laugh. 2) Succeed. 3) Awkwardly slide down the wall in a way that all the cool kids wish they could replicate.

Have you seen neon fuzzy purses with googly eyes that have been approved by gnomes and unicorns? I’m kind of worried that my other purses were not approved by this prestigious panel, and think I should work on setting up an appointment with them to make sure everything is on the up-and-up.

Another big thing that happened this week was the frosting food fight in the park. There’s more to come on that, so stay tuned. But here’s a sneak peek.
