A joyous return

Hola compadres! I have returned from the relaxing, nature-communing rafting trip down the Colorado river from Colorado into Utah refreshed and renewed. Then today I received some wonderful news that has propelled me back into blogdom again.

Remember my first attempt at The Manolo's Build the Outfit? Well, I tried it again for his next contest. And this time, I won! The thrill of being chosen is at least as delightful as the free shoes I'll receive. Perhaps a second career as a Hollywood stylist is possible? At any rate, it was great fun.

I also want to extend my thanks to my dear dog Ripley for filling in while I was unable to form any worthwhile posts on my own.

That's awesome!!! Congrats on the free shoes and the win!! Your rafting trip sounds very exciting (jealous much!); any pictures to share?

Bring back Ripley!

Sarah - thanks. I didn't take my camera rafting because I was afraid of losing it in the river. Someone else did so if I get ahold of those pictures I'll be sure to post. We had some glorious bald eagle and big horned sheep sightings.

Rhet - never fear, Ripley enjoyed her appearance so much that I'm sure she'll still be featured as a guest blogger.

She has a taste for the limelight now?
Protect her form the other bitches out there: the Hiltons; the Spears; the Lohans; et cetera

Well done! Maybe now Ripley can get some new shoes?

Way to go! That's some seriously bad ass stylins.

Tanya - Ripley may be my first girl but sadly she doesn't share my love of shoes.

Chel - I think the lack of having to dress since starting to work from home has actually sharpened my stylin skills.

Cat - I've got mad skillz!
