  1. Yay Kat! I read the story in Teen Vogue about Molly Ringewald and the dress in Pretty in Pink. The manageing partner said I look pretty in pink also, but I will only wear darker reds b/c Pink tend’s to fade out with my blond hair. It was an execllent article, and I commend it to the ENTIRE hive! YAY!!!

    I’d love to read a series about a week in the life of a professional woman not necessarily a mother! Real Simple magazine used to have something similar every issue and I loved it until they got rid of it. I love seeing how regular women with a variety of jobs in all different circumstances manage their days.
