Have a relaxing weekend.

What are you up to this weekend? Our moving day is tomorrow, so today we are packing up. Our apartment looks bizarre with no art, curtains, anything. Please wish us luck tomorrow! Hope you're doing something easy breezy, and here are a few fun posts from around the web...

Six nail polish colors for the fall. (Love the green.)

Can emotional intelligence be taught?

Leslie Knope's girl code.

Date-night lamb chops.

This French dessert looks delicious.

Starry skies.

Five surprising beauty tips.

Colby College Mountain Day.

Pretty black dress.

A new graphic novel!

This guy is psyched.

Plus, three past posts you may have missed:
* 11 Nutella recipes.
* Clever way to frame a photo.
* Have you ever lived alone?

this is one of my favorite posts to read!
always such good material, thank you for keeping us informed and entertained. love the article about feeling being taught and that novel looks so much fun I might have to order it!

Good luck with the move! Don't forget that when you're unpacking and ask 'why did I ever pack this?', toss it right there and then. (Or put it out for someone else to love.) Moving is a great time to pare down. Enjoy the new digs!

We just moved two weeks ago to Toronto from the suburbs... It is so tiring but at the end so worth it! Wish you the best of luck!!
P.S. Loved the links!

Good luck on the move!!

I went to Smith College and we also have Mountain day, where the president of the college chooses a random fall day to cancel all classes and students go apple picking have picnics, bake, or rest in their rooms.Now, i'm feeling nostalgic.

I love the Friday posts, too! Always a great round-up on internet finds

Thank you for the link about "emotional intelligence". It reminds me that I need to consider my kids' perspective even if I feel they've done something wrong.

Good luck with your move! Put on some great tunes and drink a cold one whiling packing. It will make the packing less painful and you will then be moving to some awesome beats. Cheers my dear!

I don't really expect this to be changed, since you're busy, but...

As a Maine native and graduate of another Maine liberal arts college which is a rival to Colby College, I immediately noticed your link to "Colby College Mountain Day," something I had never heard of. After following the link, I realized that the blog post, showing an old article in Life Magazine, is actually about Colby-Sawyer College, a totally different institution in New Hampshire.

The blogger has an edit saying that Colby College is now known as Colby-Sawyer, and she will keep using the name Colby College, because that's what the school's name was when the Life Magazine article was published.

This is wrong. Colby-Sawyer College was previously known by several names, including Colby Academy and Colby Junior College for Women, but it was never called Colby College.

Colby College in Waterville, Maine is a highly-selective liberal arts college currently ranked 22 by US News and World Report. I think you (as well as the other blogger) should change the name in your link, given that it confuses one institution with another more prestigious, more selective, and more well-known college. It's just flat-out incorrect.

I have a love/hate relationship with moving! We've moved our household 18 times in 44 years. I'll be with you in spirit!

We moved this week also! Setting up mountains of IKEA furniture this weekend, but will look forward to a rewarding glass of wine at the end of the day :) Wishing you all good luck and happy moving!!

I love that dress! I need to try that french dessert recipe! Also those beauty tips are great especially the fact that you should use mascara on your brows. As someone with unruly thick brows I need to start doing that!

This is exactly our plan. it is rainy in Germany and I don't even want to think about me moving to a different city next weekend! Still haven't found a place as the apartments on the market are overpriced, below normal value and totally overly demanded.

But I wish you luck! Always good to have great friends to keep you sane!
Cheers, Taty
