Happy Halloween everyone!

Life is too short to wake up with regrets.
So love the people who treat you right.
Forget about the ones who don't.
Believe everything happens for a reason.. If you
get a second chance, grab it with both hands. If it
changes your life, let it. Nobody said life would be easy,
they just promised it would be worth it.
Friends are like balloons; once you let them go,
you can't get them back. So I'm gonna tie you to
my heart so I never lose you. Send this to all your
friends including me and see how many you get
back. Send this balloon to everybody you like. You
may also return it to me. If four balloons are
returned to you, something you have been waiting
for a long time will happen!!!! Believe me...... It
really happens! Send a lot of little balloons to

Now, for the shoe update, I ran by The Shoe Gallery and my camera wouldn't work!! (Dead Batteries!) But they have a very limited inventory and PLD--no Lilly JR's in your size at this moment! :-(
I will be obnoxious though and go back with my camera. They had some new prints that were so cute!!!

b. ~~do highlights again (this can get scary and I could end up looking too blonde like in 2nd photo from 2 years ago)
c. ~~go a little darker--I call it Blackest Brown. Very dramatic. (No pics of this one)
And YES I finally received my GG handbag on Tuesday. I ordered the 2 stap satchel and carried it for the first time today and it was perfect.
Regarding my other dilemma--we played with the iPhone and the Blackberrys today while out, and my current opinion is that the iPhone is way too difficult for me to use. Lil Petunia was already surfing the internet at her favorite children's website on the iPhone next to me, while I was still trying to spell H-E-L-L-O on the keypad. Yikes. We went over to the Blackberry and I was texting away within seconds. I told Hubby he can get the iPhone if he wants, but I'll take a Blackberry. Now, which Blackberry? I heard they are coming out with a new one in a few weeks. Hmmm...

Also, I recently saw this on Bloomingdale's website:
LILLY PULITZER JUBILEE TRUNK SHOW
October 23, 2008 (on different dates at different Bloomies)
10:00am - 9:00pm
The New View on 2
Join us as we celebrate Lilly Pulitzer's 50th Anniversary with a trunk show of the Jubilee Collection. Lilly Pulitzer's Jubilee Collection will be a collection of limited-edition cut-to-order dresses, pants, tops and tunics, featuring new, yet vintage-inspired styles and new and elevated signature prints and colors. This merchandise will not be available off the rack. Prices start at $375 and each piece will be tagged with a special gold Jubilee tag. Orders can be placed during the proposed event, and orders are expected to be fulfilled for pick up on or after November 12, 2008. At the time of pick-up, customers will receive a special gift ~~ a signature Lilly Jubilee garment bag and a pair of McKim sandals.
Anyone rushing in this month to order their very own Lilly Pulitzer Jeep Wrangler??
There is this cute little shoe store near me (I have forgotten the name, but will come back and fill it in as soon as I think of it) and they sell these custom made Jack Rogers sandals made from Lilly fabric. (I took this pic a while ago, so the fabrics may have changed, but they still have some similar.) They are the cutest!! I am in general partial to my Stephen Bonannos, but just had to show you these!
