There may not be Fourth of July plans, but there is certainly no shortage of patriotic wear in this gal's mind as she prepares for America's birthday next week. Uncle Sam doesn't stand a chance, 'cause baby you're a [USA] fiiirework. Okay, let's just leave it at that.
I thought it appropo to go a bit patriotic today - but only a bit. Don't worry, I'm not going political on you here - I'm just standing on my personal e-soap box and protesting the fact that I'm at the office. A cherry on top is the fact that the air conditioning is off in the building, and Houston has finally warmed up to 70°, which makes working from the 12th floor an absolutely (more so than usual) stifling experience. And I know you're absolutely thrilled to be reading me gripe on this blog - so I'll end with the hope that you're enjoying this long weekend, maybe on a beach somewhere, sweating (in a good way).
I never thought I would say this, but there will be no Christmas tree for me this year. Having just moved into our house a little over a week ago and still waiting on some crucial pieces of furniture (i.e. sofa, chairs), it just doesn't seem like the right environment to bring in an innocent little Fraser Fir. Especially since we would have to sit on the floor to marvel at it and tell it how lovely its branches are - it. deserves. better.
With that being said, I have resolved to redirect the usual intensity and pizzazz I save for the Christmas tree into some holiday collages. Lucky (or not so lucky) for you, this means a whole lot of festive, glittery things that are as fun and sparkly as they may be impractical. But then again, so are Christmas trees...
