Sometimes, the internet is just awesome. And now that I have to spend almost my whole day on it, checking and writing e-mails to and from colleagues, students, and parents, not to mention uploading links, PDFs, homework assignments, grade books, and attendance - I sometimes forget that fact.
But a few weeks? Days? I'm not sure. Anyway, some time ago, the lovely Kelly offered to donate some maternity clothes to me. We started e-mailing and we met today (making her the third blogger I've ever met in person, and neglected to take a picture of! I didn't have my camera. It wasn't in the cards.). Apart from the fact that it was wonderful to talk to a mom (I met her two kids! It was amazing!) of small children, it was so relaxing to sit in a nice café, chat, have some tasty treats, and just be on a Sunday morning.
And, more frivolously, she passed me on some pretty wonderful fall/winter maternity gear that will no doubt get lots of wear, lots of love, and lots of exposure on this here corner of Style Nation. Did I mention it's all in my size? And did you get the sense that I was already a little depressed by the puniness of my maternity wardrobe? I'm feeling a damn sight better now, let me tell you.
So, yeah. Style Nation? You're awesome. Readers? You're awesome. Kelly? You're super-awesome. You guys? I'm a little emotional. Did anyone see this week's season premiere of 'The Office'? I'm kind of like Pam these days...
