I could see my breath outside!

Okay, so it wasn't as cold as all that, but you have to remember that I live in Houston - if the temperature drops below 70° we all pull out our fleece and scarves! When you're used to hot and humid and wearing strapless and open-toe shoes, you also don't want to miss an opportunity for cold weather fassion!! I am in a short sleeve shirt today, but I did wear my jacket to work today! The temperature isn't really what gets you as it is the wind! Whoo...

I love the colder weather b/c I like to wear jackets and sweaters and such, but I love it more b/c I don't have poodle hair that I have to fight to keep smooth! When you have hair as curly as mine you have to do a lot to it to fight the humidity! When it gets cold here in Houston, the lack of the hot 'n humid combination makes my hair so much smoother - no frizz!! And besides that you just feel more active b/c walking on the side walk doesn't make you feel like you just ran a marathon...in Hell!

Anyway...I am enjoying the cool weather and I really, really hope that it's here to stay, or at least for a while!

I think I have decided to get out of selling Mary Kay, too. I just don't have a big enough customer base and I don't really have the time to be out giving parties all the time either. At first I had orders going all the time, but it really slowed down after a while. It was fun, too but like I said I just don't have the time.

The wedding and honeymoon took me away for a while, then we were in the middle of buying a house, now we're in the middle of building a house and of course it'll take time to get it all organized, then once the new year starts I'll be in grad school - so I am going to very busy for a while it seems! Which is good, b/c I would rather be busy! I am not personally a very organized person, so being busy and having a schedule and timelines makes me get organized. Work is really about to pick up, too. We're still going through a lot of reorganization around here and there aren't very many idle hands around!

Otherwise things are going good...sorry for the lack of posts lately. I am going to try to do a better job of keeping up. I guess everyone has to have their own little downtimes every once in a while! I go through mine, too...maybe more than some, though. I used to post every day during the work week and try to do that now, but that isn't always doable, either!

I have been playing with my background color a bit, though. I really like this layout and don't want to mess with it, but I figure I had better get onboard with at least updating my backgrounds for the seasons! Make it a little more festive around here from time to time. I don't want to get rid of my fairies either, so I'll just continue to work around them. I promise to decorate for the holidays, though. Thanksgiving is coming up so I had better get something together for that, then Christmas will be here before you know it!!!!
