|Wearing blue plaid made some people more excited than others. Can you tell who's the most nonplussed?|
I try to conjure up feelings of gratefulness every Thanksgiving, but this year it was particularly easy, because earlier this week, Mr. Cation officially signed the papers for his job next year! This means that moving to LA was worth it, as now he has a real job for after he graduates. All the preparing, traveling, and interviewing paid off, and I'm so proud of the hard work he put into this whole grad school venture. And best of all, the job is in San Francisco, which means we'll be moving back to my beloved city (or at least close to it, since living in the city can be kind of pricey!) sometime next summer. I'm so excited about being close to family again, but also sad about leaving SoCal (and LA's fabric district).
And even more exciting (or at least more immediate): Mr. Cation got called up to be a Wheel of Fortune contestant! He (and therefore, I) will be going into the studio next Friday for taping, although unfortunately his episode won't be airing until sometime next April. Goodness, those people are not procrastinators. Anyway, I have to confess, my first thought was ZOMG what am I going to wear on national television?!? I know, I know, I'm such a dork sometimes. But in all seriousness, this is my big chance to wear something fabulous (but not black, white, red, aggressively striped, or licensed...I guess that means my superhero dresses and peplum top are out!) and I'm waffling between making something new (but what??) or wearing something I've already made (but what??). Help!
Mr. Cation is such a fabulous husband, being totally supportive when school gets crazy (cooking all the meals during AP Exam season! grading worksheets when I'm overwhelmed!), letting me fill up our spare bedroom with my fabric stash, and of course, taking pictures of my garments for me. Also, secret confession time: he didn't use to be a fan of cats at all, but he knew how happy cats make me, so he suggested that we get Walnut. How sweet is that? It's a good thing Walnut's so personable (felinable?), because Mr. Cation's totally won over to the cat side now. All this to say, I'm so thankful for him and am incredibly excited for these upcoming opportunities. Oh, and it doesn't hurt that he promised that if he wins big, I can get the rest of the LOTR Legos...
