A Retail Victory!

Last week I had a victory at my favorite store! At the beginning of the summer, I tried on the turquoise dress in the photo below. I loved it but it was $148. Sometimes I have to pay full price for items I love because my size is unavailable when it finally goes on sale. I decided I wasn't going to pay full price for this dress and walked away. I figured I would never see it again in my size. Well... last week I happened to walk into my store and it was on sale for $39.95 and they had my size. That is a retail VICTORY!

I've seen collages from Polyvore.com and decided to try one with my new dress. Polyvore SO fun. It reminds me of creting "color boards" in my interior design class in college. I ended up wearing the dress to church on Sunday with my sparkle jewelry and headband instead of the pearl jewelry I had originally picked in the collage. Note: I have all the accessories in the collage except for the fabulous, amazing, beautiful Chanel bag. Dream on sister!

Caroline (Lindsay and John's daughter) and I resting after church. I love it that she's smiling behind her pacifier.

Sweet Face

Last but not least, thank you to everyone for your sweet, encouraging comments about my upcoming trip to China. I am honored to "know" such a wonderful community of women. Your thoughts and prayers mean to world to me. Thank you for sharing your lives with me through blogger. You inspire me everyday.

The pic of you and Caroline is adorable. :)

I am excited that you are starting to write a bit about your trip. I'll miss our chats while you're away. We need to figure out a way we can talk online.

Talk to you soon.
