it's a long way down the holiday road

song of the day: 'holiday road' from national lampoon's vacation
i am so excited because merl, lisa, and emily are on their way to my house AS WE SPEAK (er, i mean, WRITE)! and then tomorrow morning, we'll be making on way down to austin, texas for the texas style conference. i'm so super excited to meet some of the bloggers i've been stalking (i mean, following) for a while and learn more and mostly HAVE FUN! man, i'm doing a lot of type-yelling this morning. i just want to make sure you're AWAKE.
of course, i haven't even started packing and i know that i will be stuffing my entire closet in my suitcase. i'm typically an overpacker anyway, but times like these take extra clothes. i mean, hello, i have to look AWESOME (there i yelled again).
so i need to pry myself away from the computer so i can get some things done. it's gonna be a busy day!

Have a blast on your road trip! It's been a long time since I saw 75 degrees so I hardly know what to pack. See you soon!

Have a great time and give merl lots of sloppy kisses for me. I hope you guys have fun [and maybe take some pictures, I'd love to live it vicariously through you ladies :)]

I'm jealous.

But I love these polka dot number you have here. And I'm still really in love with your hair. Really, really in love.

But I'm still jealous.

how exciting!! i'm so jealous of all you bloggers heading down to the conference... it sounds like it will be an amazing time! :)

speaking of amazing, i think that the navy polka dot/khaki coat combo might be my favorite ever.

Aw, how exciting, you'll be coming to my city! Next year I'll definitely have to go to the conference, I won't be this year because I'm going to D.C. I hope you have a blast though!

Those shoes are so perfect with that dress, I never would have thought I would like a flat so well.
