Girl About Town

Greetings and happy Tuesday afternoon…such a late post! Do ya’ll ever have those days where you feel like you’re ten steps behind all day long? I literally got to work at 8:00 this morning and have not looked up from the computer.

It feels like it should be Friday already, haha.

Know what, though? Yesterday was actually a decent Monday. Crazy and busy? Yes, but far better than the majority of Mondays. A few things that made it lovely:

1. My PERFECT morning latte from the fine folks at Silver Joe’s. Nothing cures the leftover drowsiness from the weekend quite like a scorching hot, frothy vanilla latte from my fave local coffee joint. And the drive-thru attendant Judy is the sweetest lady ever.

2. Highlights! My blonde hair was all shiny and pretty this morning when I woke up all thanks to the magic of bleach and a good, professional styling session yesterday evening. I think I’ve mentioned this before, but I simply LIVE for trips to the salon.

3. A full 8 hours of sleep. Now this is a feat for me, as I’m a horribly light sleeper and average (Mom, don’t read this part) probably only 5 hours on a good night. But last night, I went to bed around 10:30, fell right to sleep and slept until 6:30 a.m. this morning. Probably not a coincidence that I've been super-productive at work today either, huh?

4. Finally getting a chance to read through all of your nice comments and emails…you guys are too sweet. You make this blogger all warm and gooey and sentimental : ) I mean it when I say, I LOVE hearing from you girls (and a handful of daring guys!)

I’ll be out of pocket and running like the wind across the state for the next three or four days, so Trend Watch Wednesday and High Heel Mafia will return to its regular schedule next week.

I will, however, try to post on Thursday this week, so please stop by if you’re in the blog neighborhood.

In honor of my travels this week, I thought I'd share this GORGEOUS globe-trotting themed photo spread via FGR featuring Hana Soukupova and photographed by Arthur Elgort. Outfits, courtesy of Valentino, Dior and Chanel Haute Couture. All my favorite peeps.

Alright Blonde Ambitioners, I’m out. Talk to you Thursday!

Be blessed, lovelies-

  8. Safe Trip and if I didn't get my sleep I would just roll over and die! LOL! When I had Grant that was the first thing I was set to do was teach him to sleep thru the night so MOMMY could to! Love ya
