Happy Earth Day!

Just a quick Happy Earth Day message. This year I will be celebrating Earth Day by switching out the Styrofoam cups at work for paper. What will you do?

Happy Birthday Puddles

Today she turns 13! That's like 68 in human years. So she is like a Baby Boomer. Well I'm not exactly sure when her birthday is but I got her towards the  beginning of June 13 years ago and they said she was 6 weeks old so I just decided we have the same birthday. She has been a good friend all these years. Here's to the hope of many more birthdays together.

J Crew = Affordable? In what universe

I was watching CBS news last night and they made big mention of Michelle Obama at the G20 summit "and that she and she wore affordable clothes from the brand J. Crew throughout her husband's election campaign." According to CBS news this is what affordable looks like

It's a little hard to see but the total price tag is approximately $340.00 Obtainable yes. Affordable? I'm not sure unless maybe your husband is the president and make 200,000 dollars a year. No please don't miss my point. I am by no way trashing Michelle for her commitment to stick to a budget and buy clothes that are modest by most public figures standards. My gripe is with CBS news for being, let's say, "out of touch" with what is affordable for most of us.
