Quoting Paris

I was stuck in the orthodontist waiting room for over an hour today and
 the book I'd planned to read was left on my kitchen counter. So, I had to resort to leafing through piles of magazines instead {while drinking office coffee with powdered creamer}.  

ANYway...
I had no idea that Paris Hilton ever said anything that anyone remembered long enough to quote it, 
but I was apparently mistaken...
She has her own quotation marks and everything on either side of a quote that goes like this:

"The only rule is don't be boring and dress cute wherever you go.  Life is too short to blend in."

I would say that she is far from blending in, she has the market on trying to be noticed and "cute"
but I have to disagree with her.  
Sometimes you don't have to dress cute to be noticed....
just ask this guy

Even without his bling he is not likely to go unnoticed. 

And sometimes you can just try way too hard....

and, though you may get noticed, it's really not for your charming beauty.

Someone PUHleease tell Paris that sometimes less is more 

{but NOT when it comes to modesty}
and a little blending in could do you good, girl...

I need to think about leaving a book in my car...

Today is the day Alex heads back to college.  It's been well over a month that he's been home and I've enjoyed every minute.  {Even with all his LATE hours.....LATE to bed, LATE to get up}  He is becoming a great young man and watching it happen is a joy to me.  He's had some rough hurdles in school this year...in his own words he has a love/hate relationship with college.  I'm a little sad about sending him back today, I think I'll miss him skulking around these parts at odd times during the day.  But, he's ready and it's time...you can read his thoughts about it HERE on his blog.

He doesn't know it yet, but I'll be taking some pictures a little later on.  
I am realizing how fleeting these years are and how bad I am at capturing them...
{don't tell him, he hates my camera}
He just walked in the room to convince me we should lunch together at Panera...
he knows my weak spot...

It sounds like he is learning good things about himself and letting himself be used by the Lord!

Yea, yea, yea...I know all that you write is so true...but I just can't help get past wondering how Paris got her hands on my workout ensemble (try not to visualize).

Looking forward to seeing you soon.
