Hi, all. Long time no update. Sorry about that; I just haven't had much to write about.
I realized that I haven't posted any entries about frenzied hunts for the perfect outfit for our company Christmas party, as I did in 2006 and 2005. That's because I pretty much knew what I was going to wear; I wore the same dress I wore to the family wedding back in October. Have a pic:
I cranked the contrast on the picture way up so you could see the dress; standing in a black dress against a dark Christmas tree made me look like a floating disembodied head and arms in the original photo. (We hadn't gotten around to decorating our tree yet; we did it the next morning after my hangover wore off.) This time, it was more than cold enough out for me to get away with the wrap I couldn't wear in the steamy South.
The party was on Saturday night. This kicks off a whole month of partying and celebration; my birthday is a week away and I've already given myself a four-day weekend as a present (and have three of those days booked with fun activities). I want to make the last year of my 30s memorable.
