  1. Oh, I was hoping to catch you all and now I have to engage in shameless self-promotion. I have a post up here (http://blushinghostessentertains.blogspot.com/2009/10/yielding-pen-privilige.html) on how to host your team for dinner. Required years of blood, sweat, and yes, I confess to tears, to learn this stuff so I thought I would try to pass it on. Have a wonderful weekend everyone.

  2. Please, please, please let denim start becoming popular for work! I LOVE wearing jeans.
