Anyone have some Friday fever?

I do! I do!

Here in Austin, there’s definitely a whole lot of fun going on between week 2 of the big ACL (Austin City Limits) Music fest and Texas-OU football weekend (the “Red River Rivalry”) going on at Texas Cowboy’s stadium on Saturday.

If you’re simply feeling some Friday fever for some R & R though, get caught up with everything you missed on the blog this week right here (plus Thrive’s Faves from around the inter-webs):
