We're headed to New York City early next week for the Tribeca Film Festival where The Gorilla will be screening his latest documentary Angry Sky. I'll be Instagramming the trip (and will be recording the next episode of Sorta Awesome) if you'd like to follow along.
My parents arrive tomorrow to stay here with the kids while we're gone, so we'll have a fun weekend with family before we cross the country.
This is our second time to do Tribeca. The first was 5 years ago when The Gorilla premiered The Birth of Big Air, also part of the ESPN 30 for 30 series. (I wrote about that here, when this blog was pretty new, and reading it now seems like a million years ago.)
Business Insider named Angry Sky one of the 8 movies you need to see at the Tribeca Film Festival, so we're pretty excited for next week. Angry Sky will air on ESPN on June 8.
This week on the HH facebook page I shared an article that resonated with me about moving to Los Angeles, and a book that reminds me so much of my Oklahoma hometown.
We also had a big discussion about J.Crew (based on this article), and how its quirky style in the last few years has been bad for the original classic, preppy customer. And then - I swear this wasn't on purpose - I ran to the mall to buy a few spring basics, and ended up finding them ALL at J.Crew:
I bought every single one of these pieces (some in different colors than shown here), so I'm not recommending anything I didn't try on and purchase myself.
1. Silk camisole. This is cute very nicely, and will go under anything.
2. Chunky trim cardigan. This was on sale 50% off the sale price yesterday (making it a steal), but it is just on regular sale today. Watch for it, though. This is a great basic for chilly summer evenings.
3. Cap-sleeve blouse. I bought this plain shirt to go with the few pairs of patterned pants I have. It drapes nicely. Also on sale.
4. Linen V-neck tee. I practically live in the linen tank, so I knew that the t-shirt would be another good staple for me.
For your weekend reading pleasure:
My friend Shawn Smucker put his new book The Day the Angels Fell for sale for $2.99 just for Friday Links. Get it quick!
- What it's like to be laughed at on the internet. (Oh, my heart. But this puts things into perspective, doesn't it?) And then...
- 3-D Lashes, Jamberry, and Other Ways to Lose Facebook Friends. The post got tons of pushback. I thought it was funny and also true. I'm all for people working from home, and I understand that self-promotion is part of the game. I have to do it myself with this blog. But some of the tactics that people are using daily are annoying, and bad for friendships and business in the long run. Whatever you do, folks, do NOT create a FB group and add people to it without their permission. Really. Don't.
- A list of Favorite Food Memoirs. I know some of you will love this!
- And I will leave you with this for the weekend: "I didn't follow my heart, I worked my ass off."
We have a lazy few days planned with my family before we travel.
Happy weekend to you!
