First and foremost, HAPPY VETERANS DAY!! Thank you to all of you who have served. I am very proud of my dad and my brother. Give a vet a hug today.
I watched live yesterday as President-Elect Obama and Michelle Obama visited the White House, hosted by President Bush and First Lady Laura Bush. I was FASCINATED. Wow! History, baby!
I enjoy watching the little things. How Obama remarked "You both look autumnal," to Michelle and Laura, referrring to their dresses. (A clear shout-out to you, Christin!) I loved the body language. Bush waves, then Obama. Obama's hand on Bush's back as they entered the White House. Bush's hand on Obama's back as they entered the Oval Office.
It's so fascinating! I'm obsessed. I watched it all again for our story this morning. So cool.
Okay, how tall is Michelle Obama, seriously! She must have been really uncomfortable in that limosine.
Moving on… I was wandering aimlessly around Target yesterday. Yup. Really. I couldn't remember why I was there. It's sad… but I think sometimes I'm just pulled there by some unnamed force… But I ended up getting a card and some Burt's Bees chapstick, so that's good. Oh! And I picked up a pound of Starbucks Winter Blend. Um…. YEAH. Love it. Small print: This is in not an endorsement of Winter in any way, shape or form. I'm still anti-Winter. I just like the coffee. It may be as simple as I'm flavored-coffee'd out. I dunno. Does that ever happen to you?
I leave you with a picture of my sweet Mr. Puggles. I have no doubt, this is what he's doing right now at this very moment:
I have to switch the cushions back and forth because God forbid Brokaw lay on the other side!
