Reagan's Blob

I read a handful of mormon lady blogs.
I am not mormon - they are.
I am not stylish - they are.
I do not fix our home super cute - they do.
I do not fix beautiful meals and host beautiful dinner parties - they do.
And I can't help it.
I enjoy these gals and I am addicted to their blogs.

A few months ago, one of my favorite mormon ladies introduced me to a blogger named Reagan. And that began my addiction to Reagan's Blob. Reagan is a wife, mother, super stylish hair cutter. And I really love to read her blob. Her daugther Piper is sick and lives in a hospital. I often find myself thinking about Reagan and Piper. I want to be friends with them. Reagan inspires me. Reagan helps me to see things from a different perspective. Reagan give me tips to help me fix my hair.

Not so long ago, Jeff had a fancy work party that we had to attend. So I needed a fancy dress. I don't normally do fancy dresses. Or hairdo's. Or shoes. Hell, sometimes I even wear the same clothes for days in a row. When I was trying to figure out what I was going to wear, I thought of Reagan. She always looks so cute. I went to the Target and bought an outfit that I though Reagan would wear. I gotta say, it turned out better than I expected and I got a handful of compliments. I also watched one of Reagan's hair videos and figured out how to fix this hair. And that turned out pretty okay too. Man, I like that Reagan.

(jc's company hired a photographer.)
(we didn't know that she caught this moment.)
(i love the picture. i love our smiles. i love my shoes. i hate my belly. i hate my thighs.)
(but love the picture more.)

Reagan and her family are having a hard time right now. I don't know them, so I probably won't send them a thinking of you note through the email. But I am thinking of them and sure do hope Piper is okay.

Maybe someday I will be able to tell her that she inspired me to look cute for one night. Maybe someday I'll be able to tell her that the love for her husband and child inspires me too.
Oh this crazy blog land.
It is surely a trip.

You should tell her. You should absolutely tell Reagan that she made your night. I bet it would make hers.

Yeah, what @Becoming Ruth said. Come out of Lurkville for a moment and engage -- it makes blogging so much more meaningful when we find out someone else benefits from our chronicle.

I agree, you totally should tell her. :) and I love all those photos of you and your husband all gussied up. (of course, I love you in your same clothes for days as well.) :)
