I hope you're enjoying this Holiday Season. I'm popping on to share a few things with you. First, a cute story: I attended Nora of Jacket Society's Holiday Sale and Open House on December 12th. You can see the event by clicking HERE. I was excited to finally meet another Southern California blogger, and of course, to sink my teeth into more of Nora's great items. Since I was on a budget, I was only armed with a certain amount of money. I walked away from the event with a gorgeous embroidered wrap (I'll wear it soon on the blog). However, I drove home thinking...Oh goodness, I should have got the loopy sweater. I tossed and turned for two days and told my husband about the incredible find. Finally I emailed Nora to tell her I wanted to purchase the sweater, and what did she tell me...it had been sold. What?!!! I was devastated.
For two weeks I was in a dreadful funk and I walked around kicking myself for not purchasing the fun sweater. Come Christmas morning, it was time to unwrap the gifts. As I removed the wrapping from the gift from my husband, I saw a familiar gold polka-dot tissue paper and glimpse of the label underneath - Jacket Society. I ripped the tissue paper away, and lo and behold what did I see - it was the loopy sweater just for me! We were reunited once again.

For my second share, I was interviewed by the Pasadena Black Pages - a media source that celebrates the achievements of African Americans originally from the Pasadena area. You can see the entire interview by clicking HERE. In the meantime, below is the recorded portion of the interview. Enjoy!
Finally, there is a new post over at Bloom. If you haven't visited Bloom, please do so. It has much different content than So What to Twenty.
