The Blog Formerly Known As Practical Paralegalism
I’m working on a guest post for Kathleen at That’s a Pretty Hat. I’m overjoyed to have found two beautiful hats for my honkin’ big head (not as in ego, but size). I get some comfort by telling myself that my big brain needs a slightly larger than average cranium, but hell, the truth is, most of my immediate family members have large heads, high IQs, and can be slightly scary. Which explains a lot about me.
I’ve also been wearing my Karina Dresses a lot, including the navy blue one to a Social Security disability hearing last week (we won!). I wanted a pic on the federal courthouse steps, but it was very windy, plus you can’t take cell phones into federal courthouses.
On the style front, I’ve discovered that hair colored with Ruby Rush Power Red by Feria is quite the fashion accessory in its own right. Even the sales associate at Sally’s Beauty Supply marveled over the brilliant red when I was purchasing the Riveting Red shampoo and conditioner that helps keep it this way.
In other good news, got my taxes done on time, got a good start on setting up my long-neglected sewing machine, had a lovely Thai dinner with the hubby, and with two teen girls going to prom, am rather myself getting giddy by the prep. Shhhhhhh, don’t tell anyone but The Teen received and accepted a hilarious “promposal” (their lingo) this week, and grandma rented the group a car service – yay! And Lancelot AMP and I are attending a formal event the same night, so we will all look extra cleaned up real good.
What was the highlight of your week?
Also, don’t forget to check out the beautiful style bloggers participating in Not Yet Dead Style’s Visible Monday – with many of us proving that turning 40, 50, 60, or even older, doesn’t mean automatic invisibility.
P.S. Google Reader has a terminal illness, with a scheduled demise of July 1. Actually, Google decided to end this free RSS reader service, probably because it works so well and millions of peeps use it. I moved all my blogs over to Bloglovin’ (so easy) and hope you’ll follow me there! See the Bloglovin’ button at the top right.
