A Fashionable Friend

Recently I met one of my closest friends for a tour day at one of the local schools. Both of us were going to get a feel for the classrooms from a current parent's perspective. We had a great time and our hostesses were so gracious. Most of all, don't you love my BBF's outfit. Perfect for the rainy day that met us. The most fun about these fashionable friend posts is that I hope my friends can guess which one is them!!!!!!! A Fashionable Friend

LA Dreaming

What was suppose to be a very calm week is turning into a disaster. I was just having a very routine house maintenance job done and major problems started arising. I am now frazzled, stressed beyond belief and ANGRY. For right now, the only thing that will calm me down is thinking of a better place. Last April, I visited LA for the very first time. I LOVED it. Everything was so clean and lush and perfect. Ohhhh take me back to that happy place (at least for an hour tonight!!!!) PLEASE!!!!LA Dreaming
