IT Dog

I am once again using Instagram (spoilsofwear) to document exciting moments in my life.  Watching Steve and Ollie play frisbee in the park thrills me.  Can a flat-nosed pug really catch a frisbee?  Ours can.  It's just one of his many amazing feats.  We finally signed him up for Click & Treat class at PetSmart starting in November, so who knows all that he will accomplish...  I wonder if the famous Uggie might be available to mentor the next IT-dog.  And hello, TLC should totally do a Toddlers in Tiaras: Dog Edition.  With time and discipline, Steve should be able to quit his job to be Ollie's full-time agent.  I'll be the obsessive stage-mom, obviously.

Emmy Importance

Sunglasses: Len, Dress:  Cliche'Leggings:  Hot Mama
Shoes & Slip:  Gap, Belt:  Thrifted

I would love to take the time to write a proper post, but the Emmy's are on and I don't feel like multi-tasking.  If you could see my TiVo queue during peak season, you'd know how important this night is...and I don't even have cable.   Can you imagine if I DID have cable?  I'd never get off the couch.

Morning Person

Scarf, Sweater, Jeans:  Hot Mama
Shoes:  Eurostep via Famous Footwear
Bracelets:  Mexico

I started a new job this week.  Settling back into office work while maintaining my role as Hot Mama Stylist part-time.  It's about recreating balance and spending more quality time with friends and family.   I feel so blessed to have yet another great employment opportunity come my way.  They're not always so easy to find.

Being back on a consistent schedule, I vowed to Oliver that we would go for a walk every morning.  I'd forgotten how much I love early mornings.  Not that I don't love to sleep in - oh, I DO.  But I also like the cool, fresh, morning air.  I like the quiet.  I like easing into the day instead of being rushed.  I like that days seem longer and fuller.
