Awkward & Awesome Thursday

Inspired by on of my favorite blogs The Daybook by Sydney and her adorable young style, I thought I would give this Thursday trick a try.

  • Running into an ex-employee from the Nanny service we use, at the grocery store
  • Walking into silence in the office bathroom and recognizing the shoes in the next stall
  • Stopping the garage door like gate at the post office begging for one stamp to meet 
  • Forgetting the preschool administrator's name (again).
  • Attempting to use my Starbuck's coffee bag for a free coffee at Starbucks, only to learn it doesn't cover my usual skinny cafe latte - card swipe for under $4
  • The fact that I originally spelled "awkward" wrong in my original blog post!

  • Sending off my rsvp for dinner with Senator John Glenn (thank you post lady!)
  • A beautiful family portrait by my favorite 4-year old artist
  • The graphic illustration above of Yours Truly by a talented local graphic artist
  • A totally random love poem my hubby texted my today at 11:11 am
  • My family landing in the Cayman Islands today to celebrate my Sis' White Coat Ceremony

Sunny So Cal

One of the perks of being an event planner is the wonderful destinations I have the opportunity to visit.  Last week we hosted an event to showcase our IT system in beautiful San Diego. We had a very successful event and enjoyed some gorgeous weather and food!  

I enjoyed a very comfortable stay at the beautiful Estancia La Jolla Resort and Spa 

Lovely welcome amenity from the hotel when I arrived

Mustangs and Burros is a great open air dining on property with delish tex mex cusine and ranchero ambiance  

Great running trail on the campus of University of California San Diego

To quote my high school principal "great teams make great things happen" (or something like that!)

 Beautiful sunset dinner at Georges Rooftop in La Jolla - if you visit La Jolla, this place is a must.  

Earrings:  Stella & Dot (recently seen on RHOOC)

A party for a purpose this week.  Because event planning is my 'day job' i don't often sweat the msall stuff.  But this week's social was an important one for a very important cause.  The Realy for Life the #1 fundrasier for the American Cancer Society.  Our Mardi Gras in Breton Bay event had a great turnout despite the flood warnings and down pour!

Remix Review

In the Winter of 2009, I documented my daily style journey and took part in part in the 30 for 30 remix challenge.  It was a fun journey that taught me a lot about my personal style and making your wardrobe go farther.  
Here's how it worked: remix the contents of your closet by taking 30 items and remix only those items into 30, (hopefully) stylish outfits.

The whole point of the remix is to show use creativity with what is currently in your closet.  No shopping or running to the boutique for a new peice for a big meeting, or event...just me and my creativity! 
 The best part of remixing is working with what you’ve got. This is a challenge to help you learn to shop your closet and to shop smartly. By being well-versed in what you already have, you will become a better shopper.  Over 300 bloggers will join in this concept with fashion blogger Kendi - 

Her Rules
1. Pick 30 items or less from your closet. Shoes are included, but accessories and jewelry are not.
2. Remix the 30 items into 30 different outfits.
3. Don't shop for 30 days.
   -learn to shop your own closet and appreciate what is already in it!  
4. Accessorize to create new looks...What counts as an accessory? Scarves, jewelry, purses, tights, etc.

Frankly I (we all?) could use a dose of grattitude and aprpeciation for what we have! This is a spiritual style journey my friends...isn't fashion so moving!?

Here is my recap:
