Good Reads: 7 August 2015

Well hey! What are you up to this weekend?

We kicked things off right with a trip to see the Durham Bulls last night. I'm not a huge sports person (surprise!) but there's just something so summery and fun about going to a baseball game. Besides, Durham's team is in the minor leagues and it's such a pleasure to go compared to an Atlanta Braves or Mets game. Traffic is easy, parking is cheap as chips, and the food is equally so – all concessions last night were $1. $1, guys. Plus, they offer options for veggies and food from local vendors which I think is pretty great.

This weekend will be pretty low key. We may finally tackle some of the boxes sitting around the living room, probably get outdoors and head to the farmer's market, try a few new restaurants – that sort of thing. I'm also itching to catch-up on some reading! I've fallen sorely behind with reading over the past month. It's time to change that.

What are you guys up to? Whatever it is, I hope you have a great weekend!
