How Was Your Weekend?

Not much to do with fashion today, just catching up…

Last Friday I attended my dad’s 60th birthday party.  It was a lot of fun and was nice to catch up with two of my cousins that I haven’t spoken to for some time.  One may think that a 60th birthday party would be a staid affair, but not this one.  I was amused as the night went on, how my dad and his best buddies broke into loud beer drinking songs—much like you would expect to hear at a fraternity party—several times that evening.

It’s interesting when you turn that corner in your relationship with your parents and you become more like a friend.  Sometimes it’s still a little shocking to see the adult side that was hidden from me as a child—like my dad’s secret passion for karaoke—which I think is hilarious.

Let’s see, what else can I report about the weekend?  I had planned on going shopping for something new to wear for my trip to Chicago this weekend, but we had a pretty strong storm on Saturday that even knocked out my cell service for awhile, so I stayed home.

Then, just when I had the perfect outfit picked out online for the trip,  I learned that the weather report predicts cold, rainy weather for the weekend in Chicago.  That’s so disappointing.  Now I need to regroup and find something relatively warm for a rainy weekend in the upper 50’s.  Boo-hoo!  I am hopeful that by some miracle, an unexpected warm front moves in instead.

The last time I went to see my girlfriend, I was caught in a terrible rainstorm after leaving the El train station.  Picture me with my hair all ready for a big night out, and the crazy wind is blowing my umbrella inside out—and my freshly salon styled hair with it.  This time, I am planning on getting ready when I arrive, rather than the other way around.

Oh, I also received my new gladiator jelly sandals that I won from gladiator-chic Running With Heels on Friday.  They are very cute, and best of all—they fit! 

Just as an FYI, RWH is giving away a Clarisonic Skincare brush today, so you better hurry and leave a comment!

Running With Heels

Hi guys I apologize for my absence.  As I write this I am experiencing patterns of chills and extreme warmth.  I discovered yesterday that I have strep throat.  So to say the least I am not feeling well.  I had two days to take care of business at home and then as my present I won strep. 

The doctor came back in my examination room yesterday after administering a test and said “Congratulations, you have strep throat!”  Lucky me…

Regularly scheduled posts are coming soon.  I need at least one more day to recover.

On another note, I am thrilled to announce that I was asked to be a guest blogger by the fabulous on-line magazine Running With Heels.  My story “Earth Day & Eco Shoes” will be featured on their site today.  I hope you have a chance to stop by and leave a comment.
