I'm not a cool kid, I just play one on my blog.

Yesterday was the best day I've had in a very long time.

The hubster had the day off from work, so I had scheduled a hair cut and color after work with my beauty operator friend, Emily. (I'd post a pic, but I live in the stone age and my cell phone does nothing but take calls. And I'm at work.)

I didn't have to rush to get home, load the kids in the car and take the sitter home. I leisurely got on the freeway, stopped to grab an iced coffee from Mickey D's and strolled on in to Em's salon.

And I got my hair did. Its purty. (I'll twitpic it later...promise.)

You see, it NEEDED to be cut. Cuz there are some fun things coming up on the calendar. Like, oh, um BlogHer.

My business cards came in the mail the other day - want a sneak peak?


business car
Its design matches nothing.
I just thought it was pretty.

And on impulse I picked up a DRESS while shopping at Kohl's the other day.

dress
I'm just gonna need some massive
tummy-control panties to go with this baby.

Now, if I can steal some time to go find some pretty shoes to go with that dress? I just might look like I have my crap together for this conference after all!



shoe
Mama likey these shoes from DSW.

So, yes, I'm totally geekin' out about it. Cuz it'll be the first ADULT getaway I've had in quite some time. Let me know you'll be there, cuz like the true spaz I am, I'm makin' a list!

Cute cards. Cute dress. Cute shoes!

Seriously, you're making a list of people to meet? I love it!! I'm not going to BlogHer, but I'm going to She Speaks in a few weeks - and I think I'll make a list of my own! :)

I love your new blog design! The cards and the dress are also great. I'd love to be able to pull of some sexy shoes like that, but I just wound up ordering two pair of cheap espadrilles from Old Navy. Have to keep that center of gravity as low as I can :-)

Heather said...

I just noticed something...your new dress goes very well with the blog!

You will look great. I love the new blog design too.

I'm going! Yay! My ONLY problem at the moment is finding a hotel room to share on Thursday. Or just finding another hotel nearby for Thursday and glomming onto somebody else who will be there Thursday evening. If you know of anyone, let me know!

And I'd love to see the new 'do pic!

Love the cards...and the dress.

I just wish I could wear heels without wincing!

Your cards and dress kind of go together;) I love them both and I know you will look FABULOUS. And have such a grand old time (not jealous not jealous not jealous).

I'll be there. I don't have a ticket - but I think I'll find a way to make my presence felt.

*Damn. That doesn't mean what it sounds like. Honest.*

Put Weaselmomma & I on your BlogHer list.

And thanks so much for joining us in our livestream chatroom this a.m.: so good to "see" you there! xoxo

Oh girl, I've missed you so -- I'm reading back and trying to catch up with what's been going on.

I love the dress -- and you'll look great in it FOR SURE! And those sassy shoes -- you'll be one hot mamma!

And I too, love the new look. Very sophisticated!

Hugs!

Hey! You changed your design! looks great! I hope it's a recent change, because I would hate to embarrass myself by pointing it out, days (maybe weeks) after the fact. :)

Blogher sounds like fun, and I hear that even us dudes can attend. However, with the new baby, and lack of fundage, I shall not be present. Have a great time!!

I've got my list and it is growing longer by the day! Eeeek! Oops, I mean, SQUEEEEEEEEE!

Maggie, Dammit said...

I'll be there!

(LOVE the cards.)

Dana said...

I'll be there! I'm driving down to Milwaukee to meet up with Wisconsin Mommy, and we're driving down to Chicago together.

Karen MEG said...

Oh your cards are seriously cute... but that dress, WOW! You'll look great in that...can't wait to see you in person wearing that sexy number!

very cute dress! I think it'll look awesome on you since you're so tall.

I just bought two dresses from target and am waiting for Justin to be home long enough to evaluate them as BlogHer worthy. And I'm hurtin' for some black heels. The ones I keep dragging out have been in my possession since early college years. I think I have a coupon from someone or somewhere so I'm going to abandon the kids to their father if his flight ever dumps him back into our fine state, and go find some shoes.
My hair, however, is beyond help. I may just invest in a wig.
