Only six days until Christmas!  How are my fellow procrastinators doing?  Lou and I continue to be ridiculously excited.  I’m going to need to be sedated on Christmas Eve this year.  Which is totally normal for a woman in her 30’s.  And this is way random but you guys, last night I bowled a 122!  We bowl maybe twice a year, and I never manage to break a hundred, so you can imagine me strutting around like a peacock after that.  Luckily I was humbled by an accidental back-toss (you know, when the ball is too heavy and you lose control of it on the back swing and send it flying back towards your competitors friends).  Embarassing.  I suppose I should hold off on ordering my own ball and shoes.  For now.  Happy Thursday friends!  xx- Sarah

I’m sure you think I’ve lost my mind for wearing a winter coat in September, IN THE DESERT.  But let me ease your mind, it was on my body for no more than two long hot sweaty could not end quick enough minutes and then went directly into my suitcase for a trip to Maine, which I’ll already be in the midst of by the time this is posted. And Maine in September, if I remember right, can get a bit nippy at night.  So, while I’m a lot of different varieties of crazy-pants, a winter coat wearer in the desert summer is not one of them.  Is this even making sense?  I’m packing fatigued.  Besides, this post wasn’t meant to be about how I sometimes do really weird things for the sake of this site, it was meant to be about how freaking awesome these pants and shoes are, and how I bought the shoes in black too, because I AM that kind of crazy-pants.  And I fully support my fellow double-up shoe buyers. We’re all in this together.  xx- Sarah
