My Closet Consists of Two Colors: Jean and Black

filed under: Miscellaneous on February 16, 2010

Cause jean is a color you know.

I am so so so excited to share some news with you!

Remember when I got to visit those adorable folks over at Twin Cities Live?  


Well, I am going back!!  Buy some crazy leap of faith, the producers have agreed to give me another shot.  For that, I am really thankful!  It was such a fun experience the first time around.

But thats not all.

Twin Cities Live has graciously offered me the chance to be a monthly correspondent for them.  I know.  I know!  I totally know what you are thinking.


What could I possibly have to talk about that interests other people, or more specifically, the Twin Cities Live viewers? 

Well.  I will tell you.

You!  And You.  And you.

I will be talking about blogs!  Not just any blogs though, mostly Minnesota blogs!  We'll have different point of interest for each show, therefore featuring different bloggers each time.  

How smart of Twin Cities Live to tap into this huge market of smart and funny and motivated men and women!  They are leading the pack in terms in ingenuity and creativity in the media. 

I LOVE that they are choosing the feature the brilliant, multi-tasking, home running, kid wrangling, professional community of bloggers that I am lucky enough to call friends!

You guys rock.

Now , I am by NO means a blogging expert, so that means I am learning about new blogs every single day.  Talk about the best job ever huh?  Browsing smart and funny and witty blogs?  Um, yes please!

I'm so excited, because one topic that may come up in the next few months is organizing.  So I am going to be on the hunt for a great organizational blog! 

Its just to bad I wont be talking about my own blog because I am SO good at being organized.

HA!  Just kidding.  Remember my office?  Yeah.  It was that way for like a year.

So, I just want to say a BIG thank you to Twin Cities Live for giving me a chance, and thank you to YOU for being such an inspiration!

And if you are near a TV tomorrow, be sure to switch on Twin Cities Live at 3:00 pm! (ABC)

For those of you folks who want to watch but are not local (like my in-laws in warm Florida, HI!) I will be posting a link after the show airs. 

Any guess to what color I will be wearing?

I'll give you a hint.  Its not white.
