I wanna talk about this coat for a minute. No idea why other than because it's perfect. I found it on a sale rack at a consignment store for something like $6. It's the perfect shade of grey, has beautiful paneling, silky lining, and is beautifully tailored to be sharp & crisp but not masculine, and it doesn't overpower my teeny tiny frame. Hi Banana Republic, you're doing it right.
I managed to do victory rolls while under pressure on Sunday morning - and they didn't turn out half bad. I'm still working to perfect them (my hair is so damn thick, it makes it really difficult!) but I think these were a decent attempt and a woman at my church complimented me on them.
I wanted to say thank you to everyone who had absolute sweet things to say about my last post on being nice and helpful to others. I have to admit that I already slipped up and sent my friend's mother a fairly nasty email defending myself (I was trying to be polite and peaceful about it, but I just needed her to know how petty her words were....by being petty back). I'm ashamed about it as I was trying so hard to keep my demeanor pleasant and act like the "bigger person" in this situation, but I sunk to her level and let my brashness get the best of me. But, I'm not holding onto that anger anymore and I guess that is good, even if I didn't get it out of me in the way that I should have.
