Did you all know that Girlfriends LA went out of business?Â And I thought they were doing really well.Â I mean they’re they only catalog I knew of that catered to fat teens.Â Everyone else ignored the plus sizes.Â Anyway, all that is left there now is a link to Alloy and a link to Delia’s.
Sorry, I’ve been out of commish lately.Â We’ve been really busy.Â On top of that, we are addicted to a new game that we learned from one of our poker-playing buddies.Â It’s gin.Â As in gin rummy?Â I was told the two are actually similar but separate games.Â I always wondered about that because I would alway hear the words together and not separate.Â So we learned to play gin and it’s quite addictive.Â Brian tells me it’s an old person game but I don’t care.Â If it’s fun, I will play it.
By the way, we recently bought Brian a new brand of perfume to try. He used to wear EBTek a long, long time ago (I used to work for Spiegel so I got discounts on Eddie Bauer merchandise).Â Then we switched him to Aqua di Gio, which I still really love. He’s also tried the AE and AF both.Â His last brand was Lucky You which he used for over a year because we really liked it; and it’s fairly cheap so we continued to buy it.Â But we both decided that it was time for a change so after getting a major headache from smelling almost all the men’s fragrances offered at Dillard’s we decided on Cologne by Thierry Mugler.Â It came in this alien green box which was right up Brian’s alley.Â The smell is fresh & citrusy and seemed to have great staying power.Â But what really tickles me is that it’s called Cologne.
I imagine people asking Brian what scent he is wearing and he’ll go “Cologne” and then they’ll go, “No really. What brand?”Â It cracks me up every time.
Here are some pictures from Sarah’s 21st birthday celebration at PF Chang’s last Saturday..
This is the final installment of our KC trip pictures. Enjoy!
Kansas City pictures part three.. These are a combination of pictures we took at Country Club Plaza and Westport. I’ve got one more set coming after this. Enjoy!
The set of pictures you are about to view were taken in our room at The Raphael. It’s a little hotel located right in Country Club Plaza. I think the main advantage we found was that we didn’t have to drive or find parking. We just walked from our hotel to everywhere we went at the plaza. The only times we really had to drive were when we went to Westport and to Union Station.
