I figured I’d be too busy messing around with my new phone this weekend. So I’m writing this post on Thursday evening. That means no update on how I’m liking the phone yet.
Tonight I’ll be doing my ancestors proud and attending an Oktoberfest celebration. I’m only part German, but my other background countries all love their beer too. So I’ll be drinking a bunch of beers in my ancestors’ honor. I’m sure some kind of sausages and sauerkraut will be on the menu too. Have any of you been to a traditional Oktoberfest celebration? I’d have to say this is my first.
I’m not really sure what else I’ll get up to this weekend. It might be time to get around to doing some shopping for some things that I’ve been putting off replacing. My falling apart coffee table is pretty high on that list. Knowing me I’ll still cheap out and do minimal shopping.

Now for anyone with some extra time this weekend, here are some great posts to check out. Ok I admit I didn’t read most of them since I’ve been so busy. I know I can trust these bloggers to put out great content though. So let’s just say these are some post titles that caught my eye. I won’t pretend that I actually read them all.
