The Red Carpet & MeMe

This past week (or was it two weeks?? - I have lost track of time!) I was honored with two more blog awards. The first one really set the tone of this award show. I am most at home in a T, jeans, and tennis shoes; but when I received this gem from the lovable Erin M over at The Mother Load, I couldn't help but feel like I needed to break out of that stereotype and pull on some fancier duds.

What do you think? Will this dress go with these ....
Erin of Mother Load

You must check out Erin - the way she writes is UNBELIEVABLE (it runs in her family!) and she is one of the sweetest, most honest people I have met. *smooches dear*

Now on to the award. The envelope please:
The Silver Shoe of Sincerity

Sorry about the sad stuff with hubs at the beginning of your post. Navigating relationships is hard. Keep working on it. You deserve time away to do girlfriend stuff. It is important. Maybe in advance you two can work out an exchange. He plans something he enjoys without you, and you do the same. Make a deal about what you owe each other if someone makes a stink about the outing when it comes time. Like...they have to make dinner twice that week, or wash the car or whatever. Then hold him accountable. Make sure his outing comes first and then make a joke out of how excited you are for him, because you sure as hell don't want to wash the car! I don't know...sounds lame now that I write it down. Might give you an idea anyway. It's like working with toddlers, lots of prep, choices, make them think it's their idea. I hate thinking you were in tears over it:(

On another note...LOVE the award. Another one I have been coveting! You are the best. Many, many thanks. I'll post it and give it away next Sunday. Tomorrow is a better day! Holly at LLL
