The president of my fan club lives at my house.
Actually, I think she is the president, vice president, secretary and treasurer all rolled into one.
Her days are full of responsibility.
She’s a fashionista, an artist, a cheerleader and could give advertising executive, Donny Deutsch a run for his money.
And she never misses a post.
The other day she came running into the laundry room, bursting with excitement. I guess she and the other members of the fan club had been in negotiations.
“Mom?” she said with the expectant air of someone with really big news.
I thought that she was going to tell me “Jingle”…..our elf on a shelf had managed to climb down off the weather vane……
…..enticed by the plate of Skittles and potato chips left for him on the back porch.
She paused to catch her breath and continued.
“Mom….what if a celebrity looks at your blog?”
I almost spit out my Diet Coke.
I was speechless.
I wavered between twirling her around for her unwavering belief and optimism in her mother…..or telling her that celebrities were far too busy in Hollywood to read about a little farmhouse in Kentucky.
“Wow!” was about all I could manage.
But she wasn’t finished.
It didn’t stop there.
She continued, “Mom. What if more and more and more people saw your blog….and then a celebrity saw it and wanted you to go decorate their house? I mean mom, what if they saw…
….and what if….
Her brow furrowed in complete concentration….thinking….the wheels in her mind turning over and over….trying to think of the most famous celebrity she could.
Then her eyes lit with excitement.
…..what if……..Christina Aguilara called you?”
I’m not sure if this is the blog for Christina.
Did anyone see booty shorts and red satin in that bathroom make-over?
I’m not really sure that Christina would go for vintage, chippy, shabby chalkboards made from windows, that I found in the trash.
But I can’t disappoint the fan club.
I can’t let them down.
So, Christina if you are reading this…..
I love red satin…
PS I revised this from a post I wrote back when covered wagons crossed the prairie. And after all this time…..my president is still holding office.
