It seems everyone is preparing for Thanksgiving this week. The grocery stores are full of turkey just like the Republican candidate debates. Oh my hell – are they really debating like every week. And is my dear gifted and talented friend Michele Bachmann still in? She never would have figured out how to get a glass of water either. OMG does this mean my kids are Republicans?
We have cleaned out our attic. Goodwill is happy. Thank god there were no dead bodies up there. Sometimes you wonder, right? But I now have proof of perfect attendance in 7th grade and that I was voted senior with the worst car AND that I read a lot of soft porn in junior high and my mom probably did not know. Cool. I’ve stashed those book away for Eloise to enjoy someday soon. And my soon I mean in 20 years.
A wore a skirt – put a bird on it – with birds and enjoyed school conferences. Next time I am taking pictures of the teachers and what they wore because both teachers this year are uber fashionable. Eloise teacher(a guy) wears cool wool vests and Chucks. His hair is also longer than mine. #jealous
I auditioned to be a Victoria’s Secret runway model and showed you my favorite Hanky Panky bra. So far Victoria’s Secret has not contacted me. I guess almost 43 year olds with flat boobs are not the demographic they are after. WTF? SO surprising. Well, when they open the geriatric section of “Pink” they will be knocking down my doors.Maybe.
A couple of notes:
If you are local to the Twin Cities – I will be working an upscale Holiday London Themed Boutique from 10-4 at Benilde -St. Margaret’s. Details here – it is Saturday November 19th from 10-4. Time to start your Holiday shopping!
Last week I was treated to a 15 minute style consultation at the New Perfect Fit by Clinton Kelly at the Mall of America!
“Perfect Fit by Clinton Kelly is launching in Mall of America bringing shoppers a brand new experience in custom tailoring. By fusing expert stylists who are personally trained by Clinton Kelly with skilled tailors, Perfect Fit offers shoppers a unique experience in a boutique setting where they will receive personal style consultations and expert clothing alterations. Whether it is an outfit just bought at the mall – or something that has been sitting in the closet for years – to a bargain bought at a local thrift store – Perfect Fit works with both men and women to transform drab to fab!”
I loved my style consultation with Sasha as we talked about cuts that are right for my body and how to wear certain current styles. Totally worth the money for this great service!
On Tuesday night I attended the Minneapolis launch part of mom.com! Yes I even got to meet and touch(nicely) Andrew Shue! I’m so excited for the launch of this great site for our area.(Here I am touching him. Photo credit – Toys in the Dryer)
A couple of products I want to just quickly share with you…
Last week my girls received the Safe Sporter water bottles from Kid Basix! I have to tell you that we are kind of water bottle whores – like all of us drink water all.day.long and my kids seem to have about 30 different ones rolling around here because we keep buying new ones because there is something we don’t love about the ones we have. Anyway – WE LOVE these. Love the stainless, love the colors, love the grippy, love the size and love that there isn’t a lid to loose..and they don’t leak. One week in and and every morning it is the water the bottle they ask for in their backpack! WOOT!
We also received a copy of a wonderful childrens book – Humble Pie from iLuminate Books. My kids are loving it and it’s such a great story for the holidays.
“Nellie, a boastful little girl, gently reinforces the virtue of humility in this tasty tale and takes readers to a place of glowing hearts and imaginations. On each lovingly illustrated page, young Nellie reflects on her behavior and demands, as well as her ability to stir up brand new beginnings.
In the first book of its kind, Humble Pie lets children bring their own imaginations to the page! Follow Nellie as she learns that a spirit of humility brings light and love to life.
The glow-in-the dark cover and inner pages softly glow in ambient light, then the real fun begins when readers take to the page with the accompanying iLight Wand! Use the iLight Wand Light and Pen to make hidden glow effects magically appear?Draw. Trace. Write. Glow!”
Oh wait – speaking of Thanksgiving – did you see what Scary Mommy did? Yeah – that is all kind of awesome world. Loved being able to help. Do you have charities you support during the holidays?
Well we will also be supporting a local charity here at Sellabit Mum. We have a extra Cities 97 Sampler 23 disc that we will be giving away next week here and your comments will help out a local charity – so stay tuned.
Happy Weekend y’all. (that is how I used to talk before Minnesota sucked my Southern drawl right out of me – now I sound like I’m on the movie Fargo..and Sarah Palin will never be sexy.)
