okay, so i'm up to my ears in stuff to do today. but i have a couple of things to toss out:
i have a crapload of box tops i've been saving in a drawer for months. neither of the girls' schools use them, but i got into the habit of clipping them like MIL always has. if you can use them, i'd be happy to pass them along. first commenter takes 'em!
we've been talking about where to vacation this summer. because the teen really doesn't like hawaii (and airfare is ridiculous right now anyway), that's out. the hub hates cruises, so that's not even a consideration. we did our awesome east coast road trip last summer, but i know something like that won't do again - way too much time in the car. any suggestions on where we should go this year? we can take up to two weeks - i'm allowed to have the teen for that long in the summer for vacay. i don't think we can do anything overseas, as much as we'd love to - it still has to be relatively affordable. i just can't think of where to go. how lame is that?
oh, and one more thing. so i'm renting this dress for my junior league black-tie fundraiser ball next weekend:
yeah, i'm renting it. i don't want another dress i'll never have a chance to wear cluttering my closet, and it costs less to rent a dress i really like vs. to buy one i just settle for. know what i mean? i'm using rent the runway to outfit myself for my cousin's wedding too, and she loves the dress i chose. she just asked us to pick out knee-length pewter gray dresses and yellow patent heels, and i'm pretty happy that i've found both items and am all set. at least, clothing-wise. pardon my messy office and the self-portrait i took with super messy hair, using my handy-dandy camera remote:
ugh. that's the best picture i found of the bunch i took. yikes. i better get myself in shape, stat.
so back to the ball ensemble - i don't want to wear a necklace, but i'm debating between earrings and a bracelet. i'm eyeing three combos, all from stella & dot (of course).
and option 3 (a bit more junior league-ish, with the pearls):
okay. whaddaya think? i gotta decide fast, because in each of these scenarios i've gotta place an order and i'm running out of time. heh. procrastinating as always.
