What to do....

If you are underdressed for a special event.


It's happened to me. I attended the wedding of one of my husband's coworkers, and discovered, on my arrival, that I was seriously underdressed. I certainly wasn't dressed like a slouch; I was wearing a


sleeveless sweater dress with a matching jacket, hose, and (some say) sexy, high heeled boots. After all, it was frigid outside and I don't like to be cold. I figured I was dressed perfectly fine for a cold, winter wedding. Then I was surprised, slightly amused, and rather disappointed to discover it was a black tie /suit event. Most folks couldn't have cared less about what I was wearing. It just wasn't that important. But there were a few snide remarks and sideways glances that told me that somebody cared. I spent the evening chatting with the people who didn't care and avoiding the people who did. I still had a good time, and five plus years later, I'm pretty sure the only person who actually remembers is....me. And I've only thought about it enough to share the event with you, so you know what to do if it happens to you.

Watch Change of Plans on the Fox Family Movie Night






It’s not easy finding child-friendly entertainment that the entire family can enjoy. I’m always looking for a new show or movie that my husband and I can enjoy along with our three year old son. While trying to protect him from on screen violence and adult humor, we want to find something that is fun for us, too.  Fox has fit the bill with “Change of Plans” - a part of their Family Movie Night.  

Change of Plans is about a career focused husband and wife who are both on the verge of doing great things in their interesting lines of profession.  Their lives - and their ‘playbook’ - are interrupted by the appearance of four orphaned children from Uganda.  We get to watch as love grows, hearts are changed, and a beautiful, new family is born.   While not an action packed event, this slower-paced movie has it all - sports, air planes, rock ‘n roll, cool cars, and especially, great family values.  

If you are looking for something to watch with your family, tune in to Change of Plans on the the Family Movie Night on January 8th at 8/7c.  Watch the trailer at http://bit.ly/gOFmca
and enter to win great prizes like an HDTV, a portable DVD player, and copies of the DVD/ soundtrack.   Enjoy the movie and most of all, enjoy the time with your family!
