A little 1992...

Hi there, loves.

It's 11:00 p.m. in Charleston.  I am curled up on this comfy bed in my gorgeous hotel room, and I was suddenly overcome with a desire to drop in and say hello.

Why yes that is me there in the mirror... and I totally am signing I Love You—because I do, in fact, love you guys—even though that's totally 1992 of me.  My valley girl ponytail is pretty 1992, too, but anything that is cool enough for Kelly Kapowski is cool enough for me.

I mean, am I right?

Anyway...

So, yes.  I am in Charleston again.  It really is becoming one of my very favorite cities, but dadgum, y'all.  Being away from my pretty girl and handsome man is rough!  And the four hours of sleep I got last night preparing for today's hearing does not make for a restful getaway....

Plus, we went out to dinner tonight to celebrate a semi-successful outcome in the hearing, and I blew my diet out of the water.  Like waaaaaay out of the water.  As in, I had at least six bites of caramel bananas foster cake and nearly an entire plate of lobster mac and cheese.  (They were absolutely as delicious as they sound.)  I had actually done pretty decently over Thanksgiving, so I'm not feeling too guilty about a splurge, but I'm always scared to cheat because it reminds me of all the delicious food I'm missing.  Ha!  Quick, someone tell me how yummy celery sticks really are!  Except don't, because then you'd be a big, fat liar.  Or maybe a skinny one?

In other news, I'm co-hosting my sister-in-law's baby sprinkle at our house this weekend, and I've been reminded at how terrible a party planner I am.  That gene is completely lacking in my double helix, and no effort on my part to transform myself into Martha Stewart has been successful thus far.  Oh well, I guess.  There are other, arguably more important, things I'm not terrible at.  Like eating cake.  I'm pretty good at that...

Alrighty, friends.  I'm going to slip under the covers and shut my eyes and hopefully dream of things other than the creepy book I'm reading.  (For the record, I do not recommend that you read this book while you're alone in a hotel room.)  Sweet dreams, y'all.

Umm...seriously next time you come to Charleston, or anywhere in SC for that matter, I'm coming to meet you! Dangit! lol IT may be a good drive but I can make arrangements! Whoa I sound like a psycho! I'm not you know that!

I'll be honest with you — if you don't have a cheat every once in a while, you'll probably get burnt out and forget the diet all together! So just listen to these words I'm about to type — YOU ARE DOING GREAT. Cheating and all.... don't beat yourself up!!! And good luck with the baby sprinkle this weekend. I can't wait to see pictures and I know you will get it all together and it will be beautiful!

Life's all about letting go once in a while and it seems like you deserved a little treat. Congratulations on your hearing!! As far as party planning I feel like I'm decent at it but I also feel like nothing is original anymore. Every time I think I have a new idea I look on Pinterest and someone has already done it!! So I say just let other brilliant people do the planning for you and shamelessly copy :)
