Superbowl Sunday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Welcome to Superbowl Sunday!  Living 40 miles away from the home of our beloved Green Bay Packers, I will be rooting for the home team.
Whats the fashion perspective on this Superbowl blog post you ask?  Well as I sit here writing this post, I am sporting my Clay Matthews jersey and maybe I will adorn my neck with a few green and gold beads and my cheesewedge necklace.  I cannot forget my G earrings.  Thats about the extent of the fashion perspective for today.
I guess what today is about other than all the pomp and circumstance of the actual game is the coming together of a bunch of crazy like-minded fans having fun, sharing some pizza,, a few beers and other assorted junk foods.
My hubby,daughter and I are not going to a Superbowl party , nor are we hosting one.  Yes, we are having a pary for three complete with pizza and junk food.  Yes it will be a somewhat lonely Superbowl for us, or will it be?
The last time the Packers were in the big game there was no Facebook or Twitter, so it would have been just a party for three.  Not so this year.  We will be connected with all our Facebook friends and Twitter followers.
When the Pack played the Bears in the NFC championship game it was awesome to stay connected with all our friends during the game and in the post game celebration.  There was lots of cheering and Facebook high fives all around.
True last Packer Superbowl  we spent it in Green Bay  the next best place to be after actually being at the game.  We were physically with lots of those crazy fans,  This Superbowl Sunday we will just be having a party for three, but will be enjoying the day with lots of our Facebook friends!  This is the best thing about social networking.
So I say a huge shout out to Facebook and Twitter and any other social network sites out there which will make our Superbowl day a little more social!!
Enjoy the game.  Go Pack Go!!

60 days and counting till Paris!!

I am excited, oh yes I am.  This is my very first time to the city I have dreamed of visiting since I was a teenager. I grew up loving to look at the glossy pictures of the fashion mags.  I read them all Vogue, Bazaar, Elle.  I just couldn't get enough of what the beautiful people were wearing and how I could try and copy it.  It was like an escape from my small town life.  Paris was the center of that dream.  The fashion capitol of the world!  Now the reality is I will finally be able to see it and hope some of that Parisian chic rubs off on me.

I will be going with a tour of about 45 people.  We will see all the main sights, and I am told will have plenty of free time to explore the city.  I will be doing this on my own, no husband, no girlfriends, no one I will know which in itself is a big thing for me.  I am nervous and excited at the same time.

I have devoured just about every guide book and downloaded every Ipod app I can get my hands on.  They are all a wealth of info.  I've read many books on French culture so I don't make a total fool of myself.  You know greet shopkeepers with a bonjour, don't walk down the street with an ear to ear grin (this one will be the hardest for me, I was born with a smile on my face, I swear I was), learn some french.  It seems the only thing I have left to do is buy a 220 volt adaptor, a luggage scale so I don't overpack, oh ya and the most important thing .....  pack .  This will be the scariest thing of all.  What to pack?
