Clothing Overload and Catching up

Hola! Its been forever since I blogged, so this is probably going to be a long one!

My most recent project has been putting my entire closet online, so I can plan my outfits, like clueless. I know, as Ashley said, "Wow you must have a lot of free time..." haha. But I have a ton of clothes, and I don't really know what I have, and my life has been changing from student to professional, so I really need to take stock and edit. I used to live in jeans, and now its kind of like an even when I put them on!
So I signed up for this website, Its free. All you do is sign up and you get a virtual "closet" where you can upload your clothes. It looks like this:

There are preassigned categories like "pants," "shirts," "suits," "sweaters," where you can organize your stuff. then you can plan an outfit and put them all together like this:

So that's pretty cool. then you can get other people who have an account to comment on outfits you are planning, and they can suggest other jewlery or shoes or whatever. I really like that! BUUUUUT...this has taken me months! I have too much stuff!! seriously! I need Tim Gunn to come to my house and help me get rid of shit! I still havent even posted my sweaters. I originally signed up because I thought I would stop randomly shopping for stuff if I knew what I had and could actually use it to its best advantage. UHHHH yeah...haven't stopped shopping...AND I feel bad about myself because I don't know how to wear my scarves. (I'm pretty sure that sentence would never come out of a man's mouth!)
Enough about clothes...
Things have been going pretty well at work. My firm has decided to send me to the Richmond office in January, and right now I am working out of that office once per week. Its really small, but I think I will like it. I LOOOVE my office there because it has floor to ceiling windows and we are on the 6th floor and there are a bunch of hawks that fly by all the time. Sometimes they hit the windows. Thats's not so cool. lol
Brett and I are house shopping in Richmond, hopefully to close sometime in January. I AM SO EXCITED I Can bARELY CONTAIN MYSELF! So excited to have a back porch and a yard and a dog and a garden! Its also pretty exciting to be somewhere for more than one year. I'm already planning the housewarming party. And the spring croquet and sangria party. And the first christmas party. etc. :-D
Brett and I have decided to do Thanksgiving in WV and Christmas in Vermont. So for any of you parkersburg people, I think we should go bowling for old times sake!
Ok, that's enough for now. I love you all. Please write back and let me know how things are going for you!
