Look at my sweet girls doing some wine-tasting at the Mighty Summit this weekend. We had such a good time, and learned such good learning. Pamie wrote this about the whole thing, and boy am I glad, since I am too lazy to be writing all of those words about how awesome it was..

In other news, a frazillion decorating projects are happening over here at Camp Chao. I am still working right this second, and I still have miles to go before I sleep. But also, check out the fabulous paintings I just received from Carter Kustera! Could you maybe be awesomer, Mr. Kustera, with your beautiful painted silhouettes and pithy sayings underneath? I think not. I was so excited to receive them and frame them all fancy-like. Hank and Madeleine have never looked so good. (I will not be telling you what their captions say, because I am feeling weirdly protective of them. I could change my mind at any moment, but for now you don't get to know.)


And now, for some outfit talk. I wore the items you see above to the wedding we attended in Seattle a few weeks ago, and also to the Sunday night "cocktail attire" dinner at the Summit. Sarah liked my shoes so much that she immediately accessed her laptop on our arrival back at the hotel and ordered some for herself. She officially named it "The AB Chao Memorial Kate Spade Karolina Shoe Order." I love it. The dress is last year's J. Crew, the pearls were a gift from my mother-in-law, the lipstick is Nars which you can buy at any Sephora, and the watch is a hand-me-down from my mother.

So, speaking of outfits, would any of you be interested in a fashion styling type thing? Like, "I need an outfit for my high school reunion, help!" Check yes, no, or maybe in the comments.

Internet, I have tried to update this durn site every afternoon this week, after I've finished my client work. And every afternoon this week, my dumb service has gone down. It's like they're TRYING TO KEEP US APART.

So we're going to get this joint jumping earlier in the day for a little while. We'll show them!

Anyway. Here's what's going on:

1. Tomorrow I am going on a road trip with Pam, to the Mighty Summit. Yes, yes, we're only driving from the SFO airport to some nearby place in California, and yes, the drive is only two hours long. But do you know how much trouble Pamie and I can get up to in two hours? A LOT. I'm basically picturing us like Thelma & Louise, only super-concentrated. Like when you lick the frozen lemonade can before it's been diluted with water and your mouth goes all puckery. But fear not! I will return on Tuesday with many pictures and stories for your enjoyment and edification.

2. In honor of the summit, which was invented by the really very fabulous Maggie Mason, I am going to do something she's been asking me to do for months, and that is make a video of how to tie a turban-type scarf on your head. Now, before I show you this, I'll have you know that a) I have not washed my hair in several days, one of the dangers we work-at-homers face on the reg, b) I ain't got on no makeup, and c) this is my first time using iMovie, which will become obvious to you in about five seconds. So if you can forgive those things, as well as the dumb yappy dog barking in the background, I think this will be quite educational for you. Oh, also also, it's kind of long and includes some bloopers, but since I am not a professional internet videographer, you are just going to have to find some way to go on.

Enjoy! I'll see you jags on the flip. Practice your scarf-tying while I'm gone. This is for you, Maggie sis.
