1. Trista is hosting Tasty Thursday today – head over to her place and check it out.
2. To answer your funny comments and emails: my hair and I are fine, thank you. I should have a happenin’ new ‘do in a couple of weeks. And my friends assured me this past weekend that my current hairdo isn’t as severe a train wreck as I envision. However, the mirrors in Lifeway would disagree.
3. Two Oprah-related tidbits: first of all, the ABC special about her Leadership Academy in South Africa was unbelievably moving. I watched it late Monday night, then again last night with D. If you haven’t seen it, you can catch it this Saturday night, March 3rd, at 8 o’clock central time. You can absolutely watch with your kids.
And I don’t know if y’all saw Fantasia sing on Oprah yesterday, but I cried when I watched it the first time, and I cried again when I watched it this morning. She sang the same song that she performed on AI last week, but I didn’t see it, or I would’ve cried then, too. You can watch the clip here if you missed it.
(record usage of the word “watch” here in point #3, by the way)
5. Don’t forget that The Ultimate Blog Party starts tomorrow – lots of fun and great prizes over at Janice and Susan’s place. Plus, it’s a great chance to increase your blog traffic and meet some new bloggy friends.
6. After tagging along while Melissa and Liz shopped this past weekend, I would like to make an announcement: Anthropologie has the cutest clothes known to man. It’s a shame that I can’t wear any of them because they’re so stinkin’ expensive and, you know, made for skinny people, but if I could shake some money off of a tree in our backyard, I would absolutely go buy one of these skirts.
Except it would have to be on big-time sale because I could never spend that much money on a cotton skirt. If I did, every single one of my daddy’s deceased relatives would not just roll over – they would twirl in their graves.
But their clothes are just so cute and girly and fun and don’t even get me started about their housewares or we’ll be here all day. And yes, it’s $18 for a dishtowel, and that’s totally ridiculous, and I would never spend $18 on a dishtowel, but do y’all see the chickens? They’re the cutest (embroidered) chickens I’ve ever seen.
And a word to the wise: if you’re looking through Anthropologie’s t-shirts, wondering where in the world all the extra larges are? You can stop looking. Because they don’t make extra larges. Which means that if I do ever own one of their adorable skirts, I will be shopping elsewhere (read: Target, Walmarts or Steinmarts) for a top.
Or, you know, walking around in one of their cute skirts and a br@.
Which I hear is a really hot look for spring.
