Weekend in Review

My weekend in review is going to come a day early, because I plan to do NOTHING today. Which is awesome, considering how busy yesterday was.

Just to catch you guys up: Friday night, I spent a fantastic evening watching.. oh.. you know.. Gossip Girl. Sad? I don't think so. It was mindless entertainment. I also cleaned. Woo hoo.

On Saturday, I had to work for a couple of hours at the museum, we had 150 Morehouse and Spelman students tour our facilities. When I got home, I baked my first pumpkin pie (ever!) and watched more Gossip Girl. I promise I finally socialized, my friends Phillip & Leslie came over to help me consume the pumpkin pie and drink some coffee.. good times, because it was well after midnight when they left.

Without further ado, here is my weekend in pictures:

I forgot to mention that I went and saw the Royal Drummers and Dancers of Burundi this past Tuesday night at The Grand Opera House
Me on Saturday driving to work (silly self portrait)
My intern, Danae and I waiting at the Douglass Theater for the 150 Morehouse & Spelman Students
The Historic Douglass is just one block from my museum. This is the old Apollo of the South. Otis Redding, Little Richard, James Brown, Ray Charles, Lena Horne.. and the list goes on.. performed here. (Or got their start here.) It was the only theater that would allow African Americans to perform.

Students leaving the theater to join me on the walk to the Museum. They just left a lecture.
One Morehouse man (as they are called) being playful as I take his picture. Morehouse is a historically black all male college and sort of the Ivy League of HBC.

The students and I walked over to the new facility to hear our Curator give a talk about the future of the Tubman.
We are about to go from the largest museum for African American art, history and culture in the southeast.. to the largest in the nation!!!
Got home and decided to celebrate fall by painting my nails a fantastic fall color.
THEN it was pumpkin pie time. Don't laugh, I don't have a pie pan.. my cake pan worked just fine. hahahahaaa

First Timer

I even bought some fall scents for my home! YAY Autumn!

How did you spend your first day of Autumn?

'I just love autumn! Its still very hot here though,, so hard to think about it. I spent today going out with girlfriends to see a drag queen show. It was a blast. Looking at your pictures is putting me in a mood for fall, caramel-scented candles , pumpkin pie, and candy corn.
