we got lucky
baby we've been blessed
couldn't ask for more, wouldn't settle for less
if this is as good as it gets....that's good.

it's good to be us....

yeah, we live like this.

sightings:  c, playing bingo with her mom at a church festival.... even the best "slum it" in the name of a little gambling.   l and r, out for a little "qt" dinner down in lafayette.  law school is about to start for r... they just grow up so fast!  s, MIA in san fran.  c, out to lunch with the grandparents and her mom in downtown highland park, also later seen making unnecessary dress purchases.  r, downtown, running law-related errands.  c, at an outlet mall...ew! but she did look fierce the following day for work, so maybe it was worth the shame.  c, l, and r lunching in the city.  c was making a bfd about her grilled cheese on wheat, with tomato, and white truffle oil.... the girl knows what she wants.  c & l, giggling at american apparel, while r hung back, happy to see them happy.  c was overheard happily chatting about some leather leggings....she IS trouble, no doubt.  l, having a tres faux attack in her room.... wonder about what?

summer is almost over, bbs.  that's a sad story!  it's almost time to trade the bikinis in for the books..... but no doubt, their senior year promises to be hotter than ever before.....


mark and i spent the entire day today, constantly refreshing the u.s. open blog, and waiting with baited breath to see how the playoff round of the tournament would play out.  and i was sitting in my cube, hitting refresh a million and a half times, tense, thinking....if i'm tense, imagine what it must be like to be them!  and like...tiger's ability to hold under pressure is so impressive.  and it made me think back to my own days of sports pressure, pitching for softball....winning state chamionships, etc.  and i secretly....miss that competetive drive.  when i was on...i was unbeatable.  sticking with golf has a lot to do with my competetive drive, but its a different kind of competetiveness.  it's more against myself.  it's more like...don't let yourself beat yourself.  usually...on the golf course, no matter who you are with....the only person who can beat you...is you.

so that's that.  my weekend was pretty good. golfed, father's day, etc.  shopped a little too.  had dinner with lyndsay late last night.   i love her, what would i do without her....seriously?  we just can't wait to get our Hermes bracelets...best friendship bracelets EVER.   work has been going well. i really like doing the product availability meetings!!!!  they are TRES gorgeous.  and i had an interesting like...back and forth email situation today.  loves it.

my thighs/hamstrings are SOOO inexplicibly sore.  i have no idea what i did to them!  maybe it was the lunges i thought would be a great idea when i went for a run on saturday night.....but i do lunges on a regular basis.  why is today different?  who the hells know.  overs it.  went to the paper source this afternoon to get gift-wrapping accessories.....it actually was really fun!  i sometimes tend to lack in the creativity department...like wrapping gifts and things, but i'm VERY pleased with this gift i just wrapped!  all right, another boring night in the northern suburbs....work tomorrow and a haircut afterwards. 

welcome to the good life

sightings:  s in LA with j and m, enjoying some beach action and taking in a cubs/dodgers game.  c and l, tossing back a cocktail or two at dinner, followed by a shot of crown royal.  causing trouble within the first hour they're together, of course.  c,l,l, and r piling into z's ridgeline, toting more luggage for a weekend than most would need in a month....they're high maintainence..they can't help it.  p, d, and j midstate, making a few grand  in just a days work, must be nice.  c and l, boating in Culver, laying out in the bow, bikini-clad, z at the helm, making the girls happy by going fast...  living the good life, ladies.  ......gorgeous loves fast.   

life is good for  c & l...a weekend of martinis, bikinis, boating, and bronzing.....  it may be lonely at the top, but i have a feeling those two keep each other company.

 Live for those moments where you feel your life lift up and take off.....

fashion fades, style is eternal

 Yves Saint Laurent passed away.

"Over the years, i have learned that what is important in a dress is the woman who is wearing it."

RIP, genius.
