Orange You Glad?

Color Wheel Pro says orange represents “enthusiasm, fascination, happiness, creativity, determination, attraction, success, encouragement, and stimulation”… Good. My law school application isn’t quite finished yet and therefore I could use any or all of the adjective help I can get! Thanks a million to all the support and encouragement along the application way. Good lord willing and the creek don’t rise, I will hit the SUBMIT button by midnight. And then I might reward myself with a Cupcake. Today’s flavors include Lemon Cheesecake, Turtle, Coconut and Mint Mocha Chip at all three Cupcake Locations! I have a handy buy one, get one free coupon that has been staring and wearing me down since Monday. We will see how strong my will is at 5:30…

This message is brought to you by the color orange.

Rosebud Salve $6 from Sephora
Great for flyaway hair, taming eyebrows, softening ashy elbows and heels, diaper rash, dry skin, eczema, chapped lips, and as a topical healing salve for minor cuts, burns and abrasions. Can't beat that!
