Weekend Reads: Thug Kitchen & Flower Potlucks

DC Spring

Honestly, Mother Nature, what the eff is going on with you? It was gorgeous and warm and sunshiny all week. I even refrained from calling in sick to work from my roofdeck and get a good base tan. I told myself, “Friday! Friday, you can work and bask and lay like the Arizona sun-soaking lizard you are!” And then I woke up to this. Whatever. I’m not bitter.

This weekend should be fun though. If you’re an American University student check out my panel at the Social Learning Summit: You Are What You Tweet! Other than that I plan on treating myself to some 2Amys, sunning myself (with plenty of 60 SPF and a big hat on) and celebrating my friend’s nuptials. Love and sun – that’s the theme for the weekend. Now, on to the links…
