The Fun ‘n Sassy Shutdown

This was literally a lost week for me.  I got hit with a bad cold/fever/crapfest and slept like 20 hours a day the last 3 days.  So um… what went down y’all?

SATP BBI’ll be back up and running for reals next week, y’all!  Have a wooooonderful weekend and please, share any tales of shmoozing!  Oh and yes, this blog is back to being called “The Smarty at the Party” — ya know, a girl’s gotta try on a bunch of different outfits sometimes.
