I've got a new attitude . . . . . .

. . . . . about fashion!!!! I am enjoying polyvore soo much. Sitting there creating outfits out of items I already own or plan to buy has made my closet come alive!! I was two seconds from gutting the whole thing and starting afresh. . . . . Today I visited a blog, One Chic Momma, and she had an older post about transitioning your maxidress from summer to fall. So, of course, I head to polyvore and find a dress that is as similar to my maxidress as possible . . . . . the results . . . . .

I love it . . . . . and will be looking for the items I don't have to pull off this look. Also . . . . . I also dabbled in another outfit based on the zebra shoulder bag and blue trench that I purchased from Wilson's Leather.

On the wedding front, tonight (since it is 1:17 am on Saturday morning) is our couples shower. My best friend and a friend of the family are throwing it for us. I hope it turns out the way they planned, but in any case, food and friends equals fun for me . . . . .

Part deux

Yes . . . . I'm still sick . . . home all day . . . . can't do anything . . . and it still sucks donkey balls.

But being at home has given me the opportunity to browse the net , participate more in my message board and just relax (which is probably what my body needed after being away for a week for work). So, I was speaking with a girl on my message board about fashion and my lack thereof. Don't get me wrong . . . I got a boatload of hott shoes, great purses, and accessories out the whazoo . . . it's just that pesky issue about having to have clothes to go with them that plagues me. So, based on the tips she gave me, I created a new wardrobe on (which is the bizzness). I was even able to pull in some of the items in my closet (that previously looked so blah), into the outfits with the staples she suggested and they can have new life. I can't wait to leave the college intern behind (clearly I'm a late bloomer seeing that I got my Master's SEVEN years ago) and walk out the sexy, sophisticated executive.

As you can see, several items are repeated, which shows the versatility of the outfits. I also tried to give both winter and summer options within the same outfit. So, I'm bout to be a wife, might as well get my grown and sexy on now.

Having the cold sucks donkey balls

Yes, that's exactly how I feel about the matter. I'm sick. What good is staying home from work if you don't feel well enough to do anything??? And let me tell you something, Nyquil is a narcotic . . . . seriously. I don't know if I got a bad batch that had, I don't know . . . . . cocaine in it, but it had me doing some weird stuff. Night before last, I literally lay down on the floor and went to sleep, but the kicker is, I told myself as I got down on the floor, "this is really weird, don't do this." I'm not sure how much time passed, but I eventually woke up and got into the bed. Needless to say, I didn't take anymore Nyquil. So I'm taking Dayquil . . . . less weird stuff, but weird stuff none the less.

Anywho, well, we're getting married in 41 days. *blink blink* Serious reality check. I need to get stuff done STAT!!! I still have to do the aisle runner, parasols, favor tags, programs and menu cards. I think that's it . . . . . oh wait, I have to buy the fiance' his wedding present. He wants me to tell him exactly what to buy for me . . . . :-( I like surprises. I plan on giving him a three fold gift. So far I bought the cutest little Duke baby booties (we're a house divided as I'm a UNC fan) as my promise to extend his lineage. The second will be my promise to keep it sexy (looking for the right lingerie) and the third is my promise to listen (I'll demonstrate this by purchasing the gift that he has mentioned wanting). For right now, we're just waiting for the RSVPs to roll in, but we both keep saying the same thing. We can't wait for it to get here already!!! We're ready to move into marriage.

The other item for which I had an October deadline is my law school application. I've made serious strides, but I want it to be just "so." It's taking quite a bit of time.

So it's almost 3 am and I'm awake

I haven't been on this blog in about two months. I've been hustling and bustling . . . . Got my invitations out *doing my praise dance* and the RSVPs and rolling in. I am getting MARRIED in 7 weeks . . . the thought crossed my mind in the car this afternoon and I literally said Oh My Gosh, out loud. I'm excited and overwhelmed and excited. So why am I up at almost 3 am?? Am I finishing up some nifty cool wedding day item?? Maybe reworking my ceremony program? Browsing wedding articles for new ideas?? Nope . . . . I'm doing laundry . . . right . . . . not fun whatsoever . . . . My job is taking me out of town for a week and this is finally the time I've found to do my laundry . . . several loads so I am waiting for the end of the dryer cycle. . . . Usually the few times I've blogged, I've had something in particular to say, but not today . . . . I'm simply awake . . . . . at almost 3 am.
