Bragging Rights.

So, I feel I must take a break from outfit blogging to brag up a storm.

Remember how my sister won $5,000 last year through the Fashion Scholarship Fund/Tommy Hilfinger? And was flown out to NYC to attend a swanky red carpet dinner at Cipriani?

Well, she’s DONE IT AGAIN. Winning last year qualified her to compete in another competition, which, if she wins, means $25,000. And, after tons and tons of work, Ms. Anna Hart just found out she’s a FINALIST. And thus already gets $10,000. TAKE THAT, OUT OF STATE TUITION. She is just such a rock star in my mind. She had to come up with a hypothetical store—-the location, prices, hang tags, clothing designs, etc—-and it’s amazing! I want to shop there. It needs to be a reality. So now Anna will be going to NYC in January to not only attend the fabulous party again, but also to present her concept to judges and aim for that $25,000. I’m just so proud of her.

And then, in the same week, Adam finds out that he got the job he interviewed for last week! This means an end to his rotational program aka certainty that he/we will be staying in Milwaukee! SO PROUD OF HIM. I love my HVAC-low voltage drives-application-engineer. πŸ™‚ We obviously had to enjoy some champagne the minute he walked in the door on Thursday.

Very giddy from the success of some of the most important people in my life right now. I probably don’t even need coffee!

Okay, that’s a lie. I always need coffee. BUT THE EXCITEMENT IS INTENSE.
