A Lot of Nothing Exciting

A bunch of random ramblings ...

Not much to report from ESPN land.  Bia is home sick with Mr. ESPN today.  She has a cold/fever.  She seems to be doing pretty well but is in an extra cuddly mood.  I love when she is this way.  Last night we fell asleep in my bed cuddling (Mr. ESPN put her in her bed after she was asleep) and then this morning after she woke up she came in to cuddle with her daddy!  Too cute.

Completed my first sewing project last weekend.  Since my children (namely Bia) seem to knock closet doors off the tracks, we took hers down.  I bought some fabric from IKEA and made some curtains to put up instead.  I accidentally cut the second one too short, but it isn't that noticeable (by novice sewers like me).  I was surprised that it turned out as well as it did.  I thought I was going to have to ask my mom to finish it for me.  Now I need to think of another project.  Chatty says she wants some on her closet too ... we'll see.

Chatty and I had a conversation this morning about staying away from Mr. X at school and making good decisions.  I am hoping (and praying) she does.  I hope this isn't an omen to what it will be like with boys when she is in highschool!  Ugh!

Mr. ESPN and I are going to a party on Saturday night at a rooftop lounge in chic Scottsdale and I have nothing to wear.  Does anyone want to volunteer and be my personal stylist?  I looked for a new top last weekend to wear and just felt frustrated.  My friend Mrs. Kingston was lamenting on her work wardrobe last week and how bored she is with it.  I feel the same way about my entire wardrobe.  I need some help.  Especially with accessorizing ... so needless to say I will probably be the most un-chic person at the party!

I need to take some pictures .. I haven't taken any in several weeks .. OK back to work it's tax package time ... aren't y'all excited for me?

I just went to a Mom's Club meeting where a wardrobe consultant spoke to us about refreshing our closet. I know I could use it....but can't afford it!

Would one of the dresses you've worn to recent weddings work for the party? They looked very nice on you.

OMG - I love tax packages!! Not. Anyway, I will be your stylist ;-) Have your people call my people.

ME ME ME ME ME!!!!!!! I've decided it's my dream job to be a stylist. Or a calling.
A 40-something friend of mine asked to possibly borrow a fun dress to a function next week. I brought her 14 dresses, 5 pairs of shoes, 3 clutches, and TONS of jewelry. It wasn't until I was packing my car did I realize my calling. She was excited (and surprised) that I brought 1/16th of my closet. Too bad you don't live closer! We could shop! :(

P.s. Sewing!? That's another story...good work!
