“If you want to live a happy life, tie it to a goal, not to people or things.” A quote from the one and only Albert Einstein! He was not only intelligent and brilliant, but he was also wise to make such a statement.

...Shopping, shopping, shopping I feel like that is all I ever do, well when I'm not at home writing or on the internet checking Facebook, Twitter, etc! Okay, so I lied, I played tennis today too, but that was at the crack of dawn and it feels like it was yesterday. I am just relived and excited that the weekend is here AND for once in a blue moon, I am doing more than hitting the local sports bar or going to a movie. I am throwing a party and attending a BBQ, WAHOO I love a change of pace.  I love having activities planned, I look forward to them all week!   

**The wait is over and the weekend has arrived. What's going on this Friday and Saturday night? Let's find out...
Well tonight is a no brainer...Bossa Nova Lounge at the one and only Hotel Indigo Scottsdale then take your pick at either Axis/Radius, Suede, Crown Room, or one of the many other hot spots in Downtown Scottsdale.

**Today I discovered my new found love for the library. I haven't been to the library in years and today I took the girl I nanny for and discovered all that it has to offer! Books, music, movies, and wireless internet. What more could a person ask for? Not only do they have all those things, but it is all free to check out! Why go to Blockbuster or Barnes and Noble when you can just go to the library?  If your looking to get some work done, it is quite peaceful.
