So I know I was on a roll there for a couple of weeks, posting every day for a while. Last week was really busy with the semester winding down and getting a big project done for work. It’s not even that I haven’t had time to write I just didn’t have my usual spark of inspiration over the last couple of days.
Today was Rob and Anny’s baby shower. She looks fabulous, the definition of the glowing mama to be. It looked like they got a pretty good haul :) We spent a lot of time in the kitchen painting onesies with fabric paint which was a really cute idea. It was a really good shower. Nadia is a gracious host. I wish I had it in me. I really aspire to being a good hostess but I always seem to fall short of the mark. I think that I’m just far too uptight and not in a good way. As you can see, Chase wore her party dress. Everyone wanted to hold her and she loved the attention.
From there, we went to have dinner with our friends Wendy and Brian whose baby is just one day younger than Chase. She made a delicious pasta- baked ziti with roasted red peppers, mushrooms, a little chevre, provolone, I forget what other cheeses she mentioned… very good.
I’m still working on my paper. I have an outline and I spent last night gathering sources. Tonight, if I read through a third of it I’ll be happy. I printed out the rest of it courtesy of the Lexis printer at school. I’ll have to go get it sometime tomorrow, I just ran out of time today.
Maybe something in my reading will inspire me. The development of specialized mental health courts over the last 10 years has to provide more fodder for blogging than article 9 of the UCC right?
Some additional gratuitous snaps.. got my hair colored yesterday and wore it out, a la Tracee Ellis Ross. Oh, and Erin, check the new makeup bag)
