Caitlyn and I took off to the Hampton’s for the weekend. We’re such rebels, we had to go the weekend BEFORE Memorial Day. My travel has been so epic the last couple of years, I forgot how nice it can be to just jump on a train for a couple of hours to get out of NYC and be somewhere amazing before we even finish our obligatory gossip catch-up.
Girly weekends are the best – highlights include validating my current obsession with Katy Perry, a mountain of BBQ Tofu from Babette’s, debates about the latest YA releases, in depth discussions on the next characters in the Treadwell Academy Novels (don’t ask, I’ll never tell!), my writing class, the good, bad and the ugly of HBO’s new series, Girls, a gallery show of gigantic cake sculptures and of course, shopping…
My future fixer-uper dream house!
The best part of the trip was finding a copy of Veronica Roth’s, Insurgent, to purchase! I preordered it ages ago from Amazon (shame on me) and it was supposed to ship out weeks ago and it’s still on backorder (hello, isn’t that the point of a pre-order?). So thanks to Insurgent, my train ride home won’t include post-vaca let down :)
Sometimes the best inspiration is getting away from the daily grind.
PS If you haven’t read, The Rock Star’s Daughter, download it, NOW! Because it’s amazing and because it’s the #1 free book on Amazon’s teen romance list.
PPS I bet anything that Caitlyn and I are blogging about this at the exact same time ^-^
