Wow- this week FLEW! Chris Wiegand will be here tonight!

I’ve been following along with his travels on Instagram this week, and I can’t wait to see that Airstream come rollin’ down the road!


So far, he’s stopped at Mary Beth’s from Annapolis & Company:

…Kelly’s, from Kelly’s Korner

…and Katie’s, from Skunkboy:

Seeing those photos sure makes me wonder what everybody’s talking about! It’ll be SO fun to see the finished film after all 50 of those Instagrams pop up in Chris’ feed over the next couple of months!

We’ve picked out a couple of spots for him to park the Airstream on, but I’m hoping they’re not too mushy- we’ve had an afternoon rain shower every day lately.


I have no idea what I’m going to wear yet, but I did get a few new pairs of earrings from Target the other day.


I posted this next photo on Instagram the day I got them because I was hoping that the words “nickel-free” meant that my ear lobes wouldn’t swell up and turn red (like they’ve been doing for the past 10 or so years):


They got a *teeny* bit red at first (probably just because I haven’t worn earrings in so long), but thanks to some friendly Instagrammers that shared a tip about coating the stems in Vaseline, that went away lickety split as soon as I did it!

Do you have sensitive lobes, too? I was surprised how many Instagrammers were in the same boat as I was all these years!

    I hardly ever wear earrings because my lobes swell and turn red–it gets painful! I have never heard of the vaseline trick! I will have to try it! Thanks for the tip!

    Yes, I have sensitive earlobes too… Earrings I wear have to have some gold, silver or be nickel-free for me, too. “Fake” ones last a few hours and then they get itchy and then red & sore. Funny thing!
    Have fun during your interview, Layla!
