Hurray for Friday! It wasn't a terribly difficult week, but I do love my weekends to unwind. Nothing too social on this weekend: board games with L, a boot camp tomorrow morning, unpacking my winter clothes (eeee! so excited!), and then we're going to see The Shins in concert on Sunday night. I'm pretty stoked about that - they're one of my favourite bands. I first saw them on SNL in 2007 and I've been a fan ever since.

It being one day away from autumn, it was like a switch had been flipped this morning: wind, a few clouds and definitely chillier. This is leather jacket weather!
I went with the Chinese brocade theme and wore my Grandma J's "Chinese" necklace. I finally found someone at work to take a look at the symbols and tell me if they are actually Chinese characters. The answer: not really. They sort of look like a symbol for "Long Life," so I'm going with that. I'm sure that when this necklace was made, it was when Chinoiserie was a trendy look, so they didn't try too hard for accuracy.
