I think this dress is super cute - but I have gotten some crazy looks..
Then again, maybe I just have something stuck in my teeth?

Product RAVE - InStyler

I picked up an InStyler yesterday at Bed Bath and Beyond (thank you, 20% off coupon that expired years ago!) and I believe that this is the beginning of a beea-utiful friendship!
And this is how much I love it... so much I am willing to post my janky "before" photo so that you can see the magic it worked for me. Before:
Purdy, Purdy hair. It actually did what it says it will on the crazy infomercial! It made my hair shiny and straight without crushing it. It didn't kink or crease or any of that other weird stuff that flat irons do, it didn't yank my hair like my big curling iron does. I even TRIED to get it to make funny bends or marks in my hair - and nope! Still came out fine.
It is going to take me a while to get some speed working with this, but that would be true of any new tool, I suppose. But the results are just too good to ever go back... I am a changed woman. Everything else is going into the storage unit downstairs - this sucker is all I need for great hair now.
I can't wait to try curling with it, and also adding volume - but it was my first day using it, so I figured "baby steps" right?
Great tool -serious - just fab.

11.25.09 - Work, Errands

I couldn't take my eyes off of my cute little ball of Potter-pie fluff long enough to get a good pic, I guess. Still stuck on my " belted jeans and a girly blouse" look, evidently.

Have to say tho, this bow reminds me of Col. Saunders...

11.24.09 -Work, Cocktails

Thank goodness for HH with the girls tonight!
Incidently, I do love my longer hair, but it gets caught in EVERYTHING. And when it is wet, it sticks to EVERYTHING.
It is going to take some getting used to, I guess.

11.23.09 -Work

Short week but bound to be busy as heck for these three days! What makes me feel better? Ruffles, of course.
Wish I had a better shot of my shoes -platform wedge suade loafers. They make me pretty happy too.

11.18.09 - Work, Meeting

I have an HOA board meeting after work today. Not. Happy.
But, I am wearing my "don't eff with me" Nine West platform pumps today, so maybe that will help.

11.16.09 - Work, Nephew growing too fast

Here is me, notice I have my dressing room back - hooray! AND I *think* my shoulder is getting better, notice I can actually comb my hair again!? Big day.

It is also a big day because nephew Vaughn is 4 months old today:
Look at how big! I have GOT TO get myself on a plane to Indy and see this kid again, soon. Aunt Keri loves you, buddy... not too fast, ok?

11.11.09 - Work, HH, 1982?

Um, does this outfit look like the '80s threw up on me? Because I have been-there-done-that and really don't want to travel too far back down that road again... This looks like I am on pretty thin ice, in my opinion.
(and excuse the wad of Potter's hair on the carpet in the background.. apparently he had just had a good "snarf" in that spot or something..)

11.10.09 - Work, HH, I give up..

Oh For Gosh Sakes, I give up...

This is a cute outfit and the morning shadows on the patio of The TreeHouse just don't do it justice.. I have on my eggplant skirt from this post, my grey sparkely top from this post, and black tights, flats, and cardi... Potter's tush behind me is making me look deformed in this picture, and the shadow kind of makes it look like I don't have anything on my bottom half...the whole thing is a photography FAIL.

I have been informed that I will not get my dressing room mirror (or good access to my closet for that matter) until Friday night! ARGGGGGGG! Good thing that I have happy hour this evening - I could go for some drinks and giggling!

11.8.09 - Brunch

Brunch with girlfriends is possibly my favorite of all possible weekend activities... I love a lazy late-morning meal shared while sipping (ok, slugging) Mimsies and sharing stories of the week that's passed.
AND - the reason you are seeing me playing with my camera's self-timer for the first time EVAH, is because my dressing room is once again a construction zone while The Hub has new closet floors installed (you see the level of the obsession now? Scary.) So no mirror for me. And VERY limited access to my clothes. :(
TO BRUNCH, STAT!! Auntie Mame needs a Mimsie.

11.4.09- Work, Dinner

Hooray - tonight I get to go to the first gathering of the No Boys Allowed Supper Club, where I will eat fabulous food (including all sorts of husband UN-approved ingredients) and snuggle my honorary niece (ok, the honor is all mine, but still) and enjoy awesome company. YAY!
Here is a close up of my ruffled shirt. I like it!

11.3.09 -Work, Doc's office

Potter wanted to be featured prominently today.. that's fine, my shoes weren't anything special anyhoo...
Had a visit to the doc about my crazy shoulder prob, followed by a pretty painful experience involving a needle and some cortisone, followed by some actual relief. Maybe soon I will be able to brush my hair again.

11.2.09 -Work

Another day, another right side pony tail.. :( (I go see my doc tomorrow to get the shoulder checked out again.)
