How to survive a manic morning [Guest Post]

How to survive a manic morning [Guest Post]

While Angeline is moving cross country, she asked several bloggers to put together a guest post.  I was honored and wanted to provide some tips about getting ready faster because every Monday I need to be at work at 5 a.m.  My department at the university sends a live financial broadcast to a local television station on the 6 a.m. news.  While I find the lack of sleep on Sunday nights a definite challenge, it's much harder to figure out what to wear.  Add to that, it's my only early day all week (normally I am here at 8:30 a.m.), and I need to be dressed for physical labor...

Four years worth of project files. Don't worry—I cleaned them up before I left.
Well, friends...this is it. My last day of work. I had planned to work work work up until the last minute, but when I took a quick visual inventory of my well-settled cubicle yesterday after lunch, I realized I should start tackling it right away. I made it only part way through these filing cabinets before 5 p.m. yesterday.

Today's to-do list:

Detail on a fab new dress I got from the Citizen Rosebud at our blogger meet-up last night. I'm going to miss these ladies!
Happy Fourth of July weekend! I attended my last (::sniff sniff::) Sacramento fashion blogger meet-up last night at Thinkhouse Collective, and let's just say K sent me a text at 10 p.m. asking if I was okay (meet-up started at 6).

I painted this for my brother's birthday...oh, must have been freshman or sophomore year of college. He's a talented musician and I am a not-so-talented artist. Needless to say, he moved to Texas eight years ago, and this ol' thing still sits in "his" room at my parents house.
Happy FriYAY! Another week down, one week closer to moving day (three weeks left, but who's counting?). I'm taking today and Monday off to spend some time with family in Southern California before we move, since the last time K and I were both here was Christmas. So I'm writing this from my parent's living room (and I took some extra pics last week so you'll have an outfit post to enjoy Monday as well).
