Go (Frugal) Lions! Tuesday, Sep 21 2010 

I am so excited! I connected earlier with Penn State University’s Great Valley Campus (it’s in King of Prussia, PA) to see if they’d like to do a Brilliant Frugal Living workshop. They don’t (yokay), BUT they DO want to go with a one hour BFL presentation followed by a book sale & signing! Woo Hoo! LOVE that campus – it’s GORGEOUS.

As soon as I know the date & time, I’ll shoot it to the blogosphere!

Another fabulous time in Allentown! Tuesday, Sep 21 2010 

Thanks again to Eve & Jaciel (and wonder-camerawoman Darcelle) at Channel 69 in Allentown for another fantastic interview. The drive there and back was amazing, 90 minutes of beautiful mountain views with the leaves just starting to change. Really cool. And can I mention, I love the GPS in the car! Allentown has so many curvy roads, I could go there 100 times & still get directionally whacked. Not any more baby! WOO HOO!

Click here for a link to Jimmy Choo shoes!

Hey gang! I’m looking so forward to next week’s interview with Alicia Vitarelli for her “Buck Wild” segment on August 25th!

I ran into the local Goodwill in Morgantown (I know, you’re shocked), hoping to find another prop or two for the story, and lo and behold, there they were! Jimmy Choo shoes, ADORABLE ankle high boots with 3.5″ heels, denim with silver studs, made in London, size 37 1/2. Size Wha? Damn European measurements. Tried it on, and yokay, FYI time: 37 1/2 is MUCH smaller than a USA ladies size 10. HOWEVER, they were $2, so of course they came home with me anyway. Found out at home (courtesy of Google) that 37 1/2 translates roughly into a size 7 USA. Could make a fabulous Xmas present for someone I know with much smaller feet than me…. hmmmmm…
