Five Things for Friday ///// 11.14.14

-Been on a reading tear lately (Thank you, Brooklyn Public Library) and I was just on vacation so I finished these two books in record time. The Woman Upstairs and The Love Affairs of Nathaniel P. Both were solid reads but didn't absolutely blow my mind because I wasn't super duper depressed when I finished them. That's what I looks for in a book. Are you reading anything good?
-It's officially cold (and feels even colder after being in Anguilla for 5 days). Starring at my brown puffy coat has me a little sad. I think I want a navy blue toggle coat.
-In case you missed it, Matt and I were in the New York Times! If two idiots like us can make it in, anybody can!
-Also today is my birthday (and this is the card I would give myself). Wheeeeeeeeeee! I'm going to a surprise dinner and a show tonight with my man and then tomorrow I'll be hosting a meeting of the minds a.k.a. birthday shindig with pals, drinks, jokes. etc. Maybe a cupcake or two. Sidenote: No clue how I got this old but whatever, at least it's not 40. Bring it, 36.
-Obviously, a birthday manicure is in order and I'm all about beige nails right now. Fall has taken over best embrace it.

Have a fantastic weekend. And please do you part to celebrate my birth. It's the responsible thing to do.
