"fighting the power and eating whatever we wanted"

I'm watching fashion runway and dusting off my sewing machine because apparently I'm pavlov's dog. I actually have sewing to do on a skirt I bought that totally doesn't fit. It's big and it's jersey so now it's really big. Which is awesome compared to too small but it's no one's dream to lose their skirt on the street so I have to give it a cord. I want to get the most out of the skirt this summer so I have to git'r'done to use the local expression. I'm so not allowed to go shopping for the rest of the summer so that skirt needs to rock my summer to fall wardrobe. (this is what happens to me on project runway days, rock and wardrobe get used in the same sentence.)

My friend Holly came to visit and yesterday we hit the town with Knox. She experienced first hand what it's like to walk with a supermodel because people throw themselves at Knox as we walk. She was about thirty feet ahead of me at all times as I fought off the pupparazzi. I love my dog like the big dork that I am and I love that the all the attention is socializing him so well but it takes SO long to walk down the street. I have to remember to take side streets when I'm in a hurry. On the super exciting front Holly wants to come up Cadillac with us in the fall so that's going to be awesome. We're going to have to practice our hiking so we don't pass out halfway up the mountain.

I've been thinking about a lot of huge posts I'm sure I'll never get to writing but in a practical way I really need to start cooking for myself and making myself a priority. I always told myself I'd take time for myself when I was not working or working part time and I'm just not making me a priority and it sucks that I'm so lazy that I don't take care of myself better. More on that later.
