Blending In

Alright, I seriously did NOT intend to post three times today. But when the urge strikes, I've gotta go with it.

This one's only short so it's all good.

On pondering my dinner-with-the-girls-I-haven't-seen-for-seven-years-on-Friday-night-in-Brisbane and stressing about what to wear I remembered this photo (and because I have such an exceptional photo filing system I found it in less than 30 seconds!! lol)

It was taken the year I moved to this country town.  I arranged for a get together of all my Brisbane friends in our hotel lounge/piano bar back in Brisbane.  It was two months before our wedding and all of these lovely ladies were our guests.  What I loved about this night was one after another arrived all wearing blue jeans and black tops! It was like a secret dress code and we all thought it was very funny at the time.  But I particularly loved it because I felt 'in'.  I like dressing like everyone else because I feel like I got it right.  I do not like to stand out in a crowd, I like to blend in!

The three girls to the right of me are all going to the aforementioned dinner. I can't wait to see them.  I just hope I don't stand out!!


  1. Heehee, that's so funny that you all wore the same thing! When people do that in the office, we ask if we have a new uniform :)

  2. Oh wow! Great minds and all that..

  3. That is hilarious! You'll look great no matter what - it's you they're hoping to see, not your outfit!

  4. That's so funny! BestPam & I sometimes buy the same clothes without knowing it, so do another friend & I. We have to be careful we don't end up in the same clothes at the same time picking up kids from school! Ha!
    Sometimes I like to blend in, but sometimes I don't. It depends on my mood I guess.
    But they want to see you, so just wear what you feel good in - it's the best trick I know to feeling confident & happy... but they'd even love you in pj's I'm sure :)

  5. Aw you all look so happy!

    And there is nothing wrong with multiple posts in a day. Whoever made that "rule" is a pansy! LOL

  6. This is a lovely photo of you and all your girls.

    How hilarious is it that you all wore the same thing?! What are the chances?

    I think that you are going to have such a nice time at your catchup that you won't care what you are wearing.


    PS: I would LOVE to go to a piano bar, they are such a good time.


Just one little comment will make my day.
