I've been in love with love...

It's funny because today we posited the question to Everygirl readers: how would you spend your perfect day? And it just so happens I have such a great little weekend planned, starting with today.

I was up and at it early this morning to meet with a group of students from University of Iowa. We had coffee and I answered questions about a career in journalism. Talking with students is one of my favorite things to do since I wish I had someone to sit me down when I was 22 and tell it to me like it is. I gave them as much advice as possible: about starting a blog, building it, pitching ideas and getting published, internships, utilizing social media, etc. Hopefully it was helpful for them!

This afternoon Danielle and I are headed to a Cubs game "on business" w/ the folks from Federated and HTC. Man, working for yourself has its perks. Sure it's cold, but when is a baseball game not fun? Never. The answer is baseball is never not fun.

And tonight I'll be drinking a little too much wine while dancing to these guys–the Mowgli's–at their sold out show at Schuba's. I love live music. And I also dare you not to like this song. It's too darn catchy I tell ya.

Favorite Lyrics:
I lost my head in San Francisco,
waiting for the fog to roll out,
but I found it in a raincloud.
It was smiling down.

Tomorrow I have a long overdue day date with my sister–lunch and pedicures–followed by a girls dinner and ladies night out with my girlfriends. Fun cubed.

What's in store for you? Any exciting plans? Or busy bees?

Either way, I hope you all have a happy weekend!
