Thanksgiving always marks the beginning of the end for us. The beginning of parties, celebrations, and feasts to celebrate the holidays. We purposely didn't make any plans this weekend to recuperate - although we did drive 45 minutes to a birthday party today only to find out that the party is tomorrow. Doh! Benny took the mistake in stride. I, on the other hand, was really bummed and mad at myself. I volunteered to babysit for our neighbors tonight so I could have some quiet time to work. Here I am, working on my blog.
took pictures of us before we scooted out the door to Nate's company's
holiday party last weekend. I'm hoping to learn how to take better
pictures soon. Overexposed flash photos don't really do it for me any
I wore a fun dress that has a fantastic story.
When I was in Minneapolis two weeks ago, my friend mentioned that she
had traveled back from L.A. with some free Jessica Simpson Collection
clothes. Long story short, she has a connection with the Simpson family
and they were getting rid of last year's model clothes. She got to grab
whatever she wanted, stuff it in a garbage sack, and bring it home. How
cool is that?!? She had so many clothes that she had to give a bunch
away to friends. She gave me the dress I wore to the holiday party. It's
not something that I would have picked out myself, but I love it now.
It's so feminine and interesting. I didn't know what shoes to wear with
it in such short notice - it's navy and black - something else I would
never do. But I think it all worked out OK.
By the way, I can't remember the last time I wore PANTYHOSE!
Hope you all area enjoying your holidays!
