Presents and Polyvore

You gals made me laugh by thinking my last blog title was about X Couple coming to dinner. Trust me, X Couple will not be coming to dinner anytime soon. I'm quite certain they won't be coming to dinner until Thanksgiving and that's just fine by me. I do need to borrow X Baby for a photo shoot though.....

Today is my mom's birthday! I called her this morning on my way to work and wished her a happy birthday. Well, actually I sang in a ridiculous voice, but I know she enjoyed it. I opted not to send her a card, but instead will give her a card and present when she gets here tomorrow. I have part of her present, I just need to get the other part of it. My mom is tough to buy for, not because she's picky, just because she's a hard person to shop for.

Sara and I are having a good time (well I can't speak for her, but I'm having a great time) I'll update on that later and hopefully I'll have some pictures of us to go with it.

I still don't feel like it's fall yet. I'm not sure I'll really get that feeling here in Louisiana, but this 80 degree weather is throwing me off my fall vibe! It's hard to get in the pre-holiday spirit when you are sweating buckets in the heat. Bad mental image I know, but it had to be said!

Remember the perfect sweater dress I mentioned last week? I went ahead and ordered it yesterday. I've waited too long a few times and items have been out of stock on Forever21.com, so I bit the bullet and ordered it. Now I just need cold weather so I can wear it to work. I can't wait to get it in!

Have any of you ever been on Polyvore.com? It is amazing! I've been using it off and on for about a year now and it's just a fun little time-waster. You can design whole themes and schemes with clothes, backgrounds and accessories.

This is my Very Marilyn collection:

It's really fun, you should try it if you have a chance.

I love everything there! You have the same taste as me. I hear you on fall though. We had a cold snap but it's back to the 90s for now.

Thanks for the tip on editing photos. I love tedious stuff like that if I can get the effect I want!:)

And thanks for commenting on my last post. The blog is my place to vent because I don't let anything out at all with my co-workers or friends here. It's nice to have the support!

I love the polyvore collage! I am ready for the cool weather as well - it was 87 degrees today where I am. Ridiculous :)
