Last week I worked in San Antonio, which is always nice because I have the chance to stay with my family instead of a hotel. Thursday night I made dinner at my parent’s house. My grandparents, sister, and brother-in-law joined us. I really like to cook but I seldom cook for myself.



After dinner my sister modeled some dresses I want to sell on eBay. Now that I have the photos, I just have to post the details on eBay… not fun. Cleaning out my closet is a never ending project.

Last weekend I picked up this adorable doormat from Swoozies. It was on sale for 70% off. I love Swoozies and cutie doormats!!!

Friday John McCain announced Sarah Palin as his running mate. I watched Sarah’s speech and I was so impressed. Sarah thanked Hilary Clinton and Geraldine Ferraro for paving the way for women in politics! She didn’t say anything bad about them; she thanked them. Classy!!! In addition to being the governor of Alaska and numerous professional and personal accomplishments, she was a beauty queen. That’s fabulous.



I hope y’all have a wonderful Labor Day weekend. I don’t have anything specific planned. However, I’m looking forward to relaxing, reading, working out, catching up on sleep and shopping with Lindsay for her house.

Love that welcome mat! I just checked the Swoozies site and there is a store in Manhattan Beach-pretty close to LAX and right by where my best friend lives. I can't wait to check it out when I'm back in LA

Hi Jill~

I think the meal you made looks fab! One day when you leave your girly girl bubble :o) you will make a man very happy...God has a plan for you and I hope you are at peace about this until he unveils Mr. Right to you.

I consider myself girly in a lot of ways but you definitely are the most feminine girly girl I know. Fly your pink girl flag proudly, my friend!

Love~
Lisa
