It's who you know...or sort of...

Went to Washington yesterday. Made the mistake of going to the BCBG Max outlet store. I am now the proud new owner of two devastatingly sexy (and really overpriced) dresses and two collection tops... that I have nowhere to wear.

On the way home I wore everything I bought - so as not to have to pay duty. But with all 6 layers and a raincoat made of rubbery scuba diving type material, I was really kind of warm. (Bonus to that - if we are looking to find a silver lining that would be that I lost approx 10 pounds in sweat and the dresses looked even better.) My girl Carrie followed suit and the two of us were very stylish and oh so very stay puffed marshmallow- manish. We were a wee bit nervous on the way back but the border guard ask us where we were from and it ended up that he had just moved to BC from my home town. Small world. So we were like old friends - just got waved on through with a wink and a smile - instead of being thrown in jail. Good thing I dressed for the occasion. LOL. (But if I was ever to be jailed for any offense, I would be proud to go down for shopping).

Tonight - on to Whistler to commence the Stagette activities. I have a car waiting packed to the brim with red wine and coolers, and many many dresses that I probably won't get to wear. But at least if I am called upon - I'll be drunk and sexy. Hmmm. That didn't sound so great. Oh well - I AM on vacation.

I'll be back to Blog sometime on Sunday - hungover and looking forward to the trip to the spa and the casino.

This is just going by too fast.

I've an idea. Once I pop out this kid, we can go celebrate with a night on the town. Lend me one of your fabulous gowns and we'll go cut a rug, just like the good ole days.

Do they really do you for taxes on shopping? I thought you had this NorAM Free Trade thing going on?

You have to bring a lot of stuff over the border from France before customs here get worried.

I too am disturbed by the lack of pictures, either of marshmallow-man-elizabeth or drunk-and-sexy-elizabeth....
