Lunch with Laura
This is a picture of my bff from college. We are in Maine in the photo.
The former first lady was very gracious. She reminds me of anyone who has been in her position. Very poised and controlled but trying to throw in some humor. Laura is really pretty in person. Her clothes are conservative, I would love to do a fashion make over on her. I got the sense that she could pull off a much tighter outfit if you know what I mean. She is tiny, but wears her clothes on the large side. It sounds like they are relaxing now that they are out of the White House. I'm sure it took a toll, but she is writing her book and decorating their new house in Dallas. I could not take a picture of her--it was not permitted. Sorry! I wish I could have. So overall it was breathtaking to see her only a couple of feet away. When I first saw her getting her omelet (yes that's what she ate), I felt chocked up. And I have no idea why. She talked a lot about 911 and how it changed their entire life. I'm thrilled to have had an opportunity to see her speak.
I'm trying really hard to figure out how to spruce up this blog. I'm not a "tech" person. I've been visiting all of your blogs a lot trying to get ideas. Thank you to everyone that has welcomed me, followed me and made kind comments. I know my book is called Social Climbers (and it is about mean girls), but I'm really all about being lovely to one another. You can read a free chapter of the novel at www.socialclimbers.net. I want to write a book about living the glam life on any budget. I hope everyone is having a wonderful day!
