Friday I'm in Love!

It's Friday and I am in love with that fact alone (though daaaaamn is it gonna be hard to go to work on Monday, after having this past Monday off!).  But I'm also in love with:

1. Travel
As you know, I just got back from my friend Amanda's wedding in Cambria, and in the next two and a half months, I'm also going to:

New Orleans



annnnnd Georgia!

in that order!  Pretty amazing, right? I'm gonna be a busy busy bee this Fall, but it will be well worth it.  Expect lots of postcards (and some blank ones for you, Faiza!).

2. Bay Area Sports Weekend!
The Giants are now officially in the play-offs (I'm done grieving for the Braves), and even more exciting is that the SF 49ers are playing the Oakland Raiders on Sunday--awesome Bay Area rivalry!  Raiders' fans are notoriously . . . rowdy (which I think is awesome), and this morning on the radio, the djs were making fun of them: "The only thing the Raiders can 'beat' is a case!"  and "The Raiders might as well just go ahead and make their mascot a lawyer," etc.  Which is awful.  But pretty amazingly funny.  I mean of all people, I should have a sense of convict humor, right?

3. Sushi
I don't want sushi all that often, cause I'm a vegetarian and I can't eat a whole helluva lot at sushi restaurants, but right now I'm dealing with a ferocious sushi craving, and I've successfully convinced my buddy across the hall to steal away for a late sushi lunch before 5th period.  And on that note, I'm outta here!

Happy Friday!

EXTREMELY jealous of your AMAZING upcoming destinations!!! I am feeling some SERIOUS wanderlust (I think I have a chronic case of it actually) and am constantly wishing I had a great adventure to look forward to it. I'll have to live vicariously through yours! :)

I'm really excited about sports this weekend too!! Philip and I are going to be cheering on the Rangers tonight at BWW (our second home) with some friends. On Sunday our beloved Cowboys face the Vikings and I can't wait to see Romo & Favre match up!

The convict humour cracked me up!!! Which btw you were a very sexy convict in your Halloween costume on twinkie's blog! :) And you as a little clown is soooo freaking adorable!!!!! :) I love those pics!

Have a great weekend Claire!! xoxo

Gah! Your travel schedule is covetable, Claire! I absolutely love traveling during the fall/winter months - so much fun (aside from delays due to the weather, of course!).
