Weekly Journal 2
What I'm Reading: Last year my husband and I treated ourselves to a Sunday subscription for the New York times and it never fails to include an article that blows my mind or just makes me really happy. This past weekend I was surprised to open the Entertainment section and see a few articles on "Friends." It took me right back to college dorm rooms and watching Must See TV on Thursday nights with all my friends before we went out to parties and bars. This is the main article, but the piece about Phoebe was my favorite read.
What I'm Excited About: A Central Perk Lego Set! How cool is this?
What I'm Talking About: I'm in two local book clubs. One is with my immediate neighbors and I've been a member for years. This club is the more serious of the two as we always print out discussion questions and thoroughly dissect each selection. The current pick is Mrs. Everything, which I'm listening to on Audiobook and thoroughly enjoying. I recently joined another book club with some great friends because I just couldn't say no. This club is much less studious during our meetings, but we have had some great selections. Often they are outside my favorite genres, like The Silent Patient, which I quickly devoured.

What I'm Eating: Oysters! My husband and I are headed to Charleston next weekend for a one night Anniversary getaway and we're planning to eat at both of our favorite places for them. Dinner will be at The Darling and lunch at Leon's Fine Poultry and Oyster Shop. Our other must do items include biking around the city (we pack up our hotel breakfast to have it picnic style on the Battery), shopping on King Street (I love Blue Bicycle Book Store) and, perhaps, a drink from The Bar at Husk.
