My Name is J'aime

In one week, I went from Football to Fashion.

My cousin, Allyson, called me with an invitation to a fancy party for Dallas International Fashion Week (same group that puts on New York Fashion Week only totally not as cool). I love dressing up so I said yes. While we were getting ready, I found out what the party was for - it was a fashion show for Jaime Pressly's new line, J'aime (clever, huh?).

You might recognize Jaime Pressly as this:

But that night, she looked like this:

Also in attendance: Jerry Stackhouse from the Mavs, a guy from Project Runway, and a couple of girls from Friday Night Lights. Thats right, I was actually at a party with bona fide celebrities.

Here are some pics of me and Allyson and our other friend, Katy that went with us.

Ever wear a shirt with your friend's face on it?

I have!

I couldn't start out with the post that everyone is looking for or you'd just stop reading. So I'm saving the house for later. (Plus, I haven't taken any pics yet.)

One of my friends, Derrick, is the assistant band director/percussion guru at Saginaw High School. His band is doing extremely well this year - won several contests, beat out schools that they really shouldn't have seeing as the school is only 2 years old and doesn't even have seniors yet, etc. - so a big group of us decided that we would take a Friday night and relive our High School days by going to a Saginaw football game.

Lindsey Holder, our other friend Angie, and I decided that we wanted Saginaw shirts, but couldn't find any. Then we decided it would be even funnier if we made our own. So we did. And here are the results:

The front - very simple, just iron-on letters spelling out the school's name

The back - a picture of Derrick with the caption "We're just here for Mr. Doyle." Couldn't let anyone think we were actually there to support the KIDS, could we? P.S. - people have always thought that Lindsey and I are sisters and its pictures like this that make me realize why! Close up of the back - Luckily we have a friend with a great sense of humor. He thought it was hilarious! And I think he also appreciated that he got louder cheers when they called his name than the entire band did when they finished their show. :)

Coming up next: "My Name is J'aime"

LOTS Going On

So I have several fun posts in my head but just haven't had time (or internet connection at my house) to actually write them and post the pics. But for the rest of this week there should be a new post every day with fun pictures detailing my busy life. Stay tuned! (And I also promise I'll finish fixing my layout!)

Actual Vegas Pictures

One of our sales guys, Rob, sent me a couple of pics from our Vegas trip today! Nothing real exciting, just us in a place called Rouge in the MGM Grand, but its fun to have some new pics of my work friends. :)

My friend Lauren, Rob, and I. People at work confuse me and Lauren all the time. Its really funny.

Gotta love the pictures taken from 1 foot away. Haha! Me and Lauren.

And before I get the comments about the fact that my glass was empty and Lauren's was full...she had just gotten a new glass and I was finishing mine. (Don't you love the pre-emptive comment stops. Ha!)

Under Construction

So I'm trying to figure out how to make my blog look more fun. I was first inspired by Laura Akins and as I was starting to figure out how to change mine, Stephen updated the McB's blog and Maggie's, so now here is my attempt. I made the header tonight but I need to go to bed, so I am going to work on the rest later. So bear with me. And I'll post stuff about the house later too....its been busy around here!

State Fair

This Sunday, my brother decided to drag my whole family to the State Fair whether we liked it or not. I think we were all glad he did though - because we had a really good time. We got to eat our annual State Fair corny dog, see Big Tex, hear some bands, and go to the car show. It was a pretty good day.

I bought something this week...

It was next to register so I just couldn't resist. Gotta love those impulse buys!

Okay, I'm sure you're getting tired of looking at my insightful thoughts on vacuums, but I haven't been able to post because I'm scared to. Pretty much the ONLY thing going on for me right now is the fact that I just put a contract on a house. I close on October 11th and I am insanely paranoid that something is going to fall through before then so I haven't wanted to post about it and jinx it. But I got tired of going to my OWN page and seeing that last post, so I figured I'd 'fess up. So here is what could be my new house in a week and a half or so...pray that everything works out! I am in love with this house! :)
