Friday…..I think it is!

Is it just me, or is the Elf gif making you dizzy too?  Try not to stare at it for prolonged periods of time, and instead – embody his same level of enthusiasm by focusing on the fact that today is FRIDAY!!!!  Yes, it’s the Friday before Christmas and the official start of my Christmas vacay 🙂  Whoop whoop!  To say I’m excited about this much deserved work-hiatus is an understatement.  I am so looking forward to having some downtime to visit my family (and meet my new niece Ryan Mckenzie), as well as catch up on some sleep, continue my ongoing organization project, and to dedicate time towards planning for the new year.  I’ll be turning 30 next year, and so I’m trying to approach 2013 with a focus that reflects my coming-of-age, so to speak.  Yeppers – I’m excited, and motivated – all at the same *bleep* time (cue Future)….who knew?  This weekend should be consequently pretty fun, though I don’t have any solid plans…..yet.  But here are some things that I’m contemplating doing in and around the Richmond area.  I hope that you immensely enjoy your weekend also, and to end my quasi-boy band dedicated week, I will leave you with my all-time fav Backstreet Boys song.  And seeing as it is the weekend & the start of my holiday break – I most definitely want it that way 😉 I’m corny, I know, but this was the jam!  Have a fabu rest of the day 🙂

It’s not unusual… be excited about a Friday 🙂  This has been a great week for me overall.  Tiring: yes, headache-inducing: at times, but otherwise pretty darn great!  For starters, I’ve maintained my consistency with blogging.  And on top of that, I was able to resist the urge to go postal on someone.  Who’s winning…..this chick! So yeah, I’m looking forward to the weekend.  I’m not sure what all I’ll be getting into yet, but here are some ideas for things to do in the Richmond area, and have a fabuloso Friday!

Richmond Ballet: The Nutcracker on Friday December 14th

Dominion Gardenfest of Lights @ the Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens on Saturday December 15th

….don’t act like you don’t know what day it is…..

It’s FRIDAY!!  Last weekend was pretty amazing, and I look forward to this weekend being even more epic.  Why?  For two reasons: 1) I’m going to my homey’s Ugly Christmas Sweater Bday Party on Saturday, followed by 2) a FREE comedy show Sunday night 🙂  And on top of that, I’m knocking items off of my ‘End 2012 Strong’ to-do list….go ME!  If you don’t have plans for the weekend, here are some events happening in and around Richmond:

  • RVA Grooves ft. Amel Larrieux (formerly of Groove Theroy) on Fri Dec 7th

…and my fav Groove Theory Song (Bryce’s eyebrows are pure perfection….jealous): 


It’s Friday!


It’s Friday!  I’m so looking forward to the working session that I have planned this weekend with my homey – we’re combining our powers (a la Captain Planet) & coming up with some new & exciting ideas to execute next year.  I would like to go on record as saying that I love the creative & ambitious people God has placed in my life to get things done – you guys ROCK!  On top of that – Looper is playing at the Byrd Theatre, which means I get to see Joseph Gordon-Levitt for the low price of $1.99 (be still my beating heart).  I would like to honor this momentous occasion with a moment of silence, during which I invite you to gaze upon one of my fav JGL covers…..


Isn’t he a cutie?  So yeah, needless to say I’m expecting this weekend to be great in more ways than one 🙂  If you’re looking for fun things to do in and around the city of Richmond – here’s some suggestions.  Enjoy your weekend!!

It’s Friday!!!!
