Inauguration Cover-Up

Let us know about the inauguration from your viewpoint. We watched all day and every time the cameras went into the crowds we scanned for you (I know it was a silly parent thing to do with terrible odds). Of course we were watching the events, not just for you (we’re not that lame)! How was the ball? Could you breathe in the dress? Were you able to keep the important parts covered and have fun?

Inauguration Inspiration

Backstory: I received this after my lackluster response to an earlier email where my mom tried to give inspirational fashion advice.

Your response tells me you are rolling your eyes at the same time. I actually intended for that message to be funny. . . . so here is a serious inspirational message for this inauguration week:

“Perseverance is the hard work you do after you get tired of doing the hard work you already did”.

I think I will use this as my Thought for the Day at school on Tuesday. If it doesn’t inspire my students, it will at least keep me going.

Inauguration Day Plans!

Backstory: My mother has been waiting for this day for 8 years and has invited everyone who can’t get to D.C.

Here is the agenda for the day:
(Please note that the agenda can be changed at any time due to the Hostess’ mood)
Stop in anytime after 11:00 AM
Brunch with soup and quiche
snacks and more snacks (cheeses, paté, dips, shrimp and whatever else I feel like making)
Champagne at the swearing in
Flag raising after the swearing in. ( I just bought a new flag)
Champagne toast for the flag raising
Photos with an almost real Obama Food and snacks while watching the parade.
Obama Triva
Champagne toast for the parade
Dinner with Pork Roast (no pun intended) and whatever else I feel like cooking
snacks champagne toast for the Inaugural Balls
Watch the Balls and eat cheese, drink wine and maybe go crazy and dance. (Ball room gown not required)
Champagne toast for the Obama’s first dance
Hey I even got an extra TV so we can be anywhere in the house and watch the festivities.


OMG: I have to buy a lot of champagne.

Love, Mom
