Wardrobe Challenge Day 2

Today dawned cold and very very rainy. I resisted the urge to pull on my comfy sweater and one of two pairs of jeans I own and instead put on what I had laid out the night before instead.

As Tim Gunn said (or maybe it was What Not To of those shows), it takes just as much time to pull on a sweater and jeans as it does a nice shirt and pair of slacks. And if they fit right you'll still be comfortable. And ya know, I actually am.

Here's Day 2. Right before Matt snapped the picture I was approached by Mr. Pet-Me-NOW-please so you get to see him too

Here, folks, is the shirt that started this whole thing. The $15 Express shirt, plus coincidentally pants from Express and my Nine West boots Matt got me for Christmas. I could run a marathon in these things.

On Haiti: Here's two charities two of my friends have donated to already

Yele--an organization started by Wyclef Jean. Their latest post reads:

Yéle Haiti has pulled together a group of like minded organizations and first responders in order to help coordinate the delivery of emergency services and materials needed by victims of the earthquake in Haiti. Each or the organizations will undertake their own fundraising and on-the-ground operations, but have agreed to share resources, collaborate when it makes sense and avoid duplication.

The members of this new Haiti Earthquake Alliance are:

Yéle Haiti
Friends of the World Food Program
ONExONE Foundation
Pan American Development Foundation
Airline Ambassadors
The Belinda Stronach Foundation

Just formed in the last day, the Alliance has already pulled together four airlifts of medical supplies, food and other emergency supplies – along with teams of doctors. These airlifts will go out beginning Saturday.

Thanks for the info, Nadine.

And Jill donated to Samaritan's Purse. Many of you probably know them from Operation Christmas Child where kids receive a packed shoebox for Christmas, but they are providing assistance and relief in Haiti right now, as well.

Keep up the good work, people!
