Why are there no posts?

So last night, at 5:30PM, while I was sitting on my couch, in my Zella Live-In Leggings (love ’em), eating a veggie burrito and watching football, my phone rang.  It was the fine people from Million Second Quiz asking me if I could be in New York at 10:00AM today to compete on their show.  Of course, I immediately booked an Amtrak ticket, found a hotel room and started tossing Black Halo dresses into a garment bag.  Big Apple…here I come.

If you follow me on Twitter or you’ve ever Googled me, you know that I have a thing for game shows like Rep. Blumenauer has a thing for bicycles.  The love is that strong.  So this is a very exciting development.  My heart is all aflutter…

Will I win money?  Gosh, I hope so.  Maybe I’ll win enough to go on a long overseas vacation, maybe I’ll win enough to start a Super PAC, or maybe I’ll just win enough to cover my train ticket, there’s no way to know.  But even if I fall flat on my face, I plan to look good and have fun doing it.

See you soon, but hopefully not too soon.  Perhaps I’ll finish some posts on the train.

xoxo

    Should one say best of luck or break a leg? Either way, wishing you all the best!

      So i was cast on the show. I beat Brandon (the dude from primetime) to get into the chair and accrued some poiints. But then Miguel came in and kicked me out. I may go back for a second try. But thats what i can say as that is what you would have seen if you watched the live feed at 11 tonight.

The Range: Eyelet Tops for Summer

Airy eyelet fabrics are one of my favorite spring/summer looks. White is, of course, the traditional fabric. But white is tough to wear when you have a toddler, so let’s go with navy this summer.
