It was a big thrill for me to have my picture in her article. I know that I am not beautiful or thin and I sure don't have the money to spend on clothing and accessories that some of the more well known bloggers have, but she made me feel like a million dollars. Thank you Wendy, you are the best!
"Nothing? Are you kidding? Page 73 - Johnson, Navin R.! I'm somebody now! Millions of people look at this book everyday! This is the kind of spontaneous publicity - your name in print - that makes people. I'm in print! Things are going to start happening to me now."
Also good is a group of over 40 bloggers that I feel that I am a part of and those women make blogging so much better. It is so nice to read their comments on every post and know that they are standing behind me supporting me with their care. Thank you all (and you know who you are.) That I have younger women who also take time to read and comment on my blog makes an over 60 blogger so happy. Thank you all too!
Now for the outfit.

I love, love, love this blouse. I got it at Old Navy on sale. I really needed a size larger, but they did not have it and online it is not on sale. What's up with that? I did order a couple of tops from Old Navy online. This top fulfills my desire for a "bird top." I have seen so many bloggers wearing bird prints and I wanted one so much. Which brings me to the bad part of fashion blogging. I see so many things worn by other bloggers that I would love to have. I can't afford a lot of the things I see like Balenciaga or Chanel handbags, or Louboutin shoes, or designer clothes. I can try to emulate it less expensively, but it still costs money and time to hunt for the prize. I have got to stop wanting and start being satisfied with what I already have. I am just not sure how to do that other than never look at another blog. I sure don't want to have to do that. How do you control yourself? My willpower has been sorely lacking lately.
On a related note, my credit card company contacted me today to ask about some charges on my account. My card has been compromised somehow. So, now my only credit card account is closed and I will have to wait 10 to 14 business days for a new card to be issued which means no online purchases for me. What a hassle, but I am so thankful that my card company is so vigilant!
