Fashion Plates Brunch And iPhone Drama (AGAIN)!

On Sunday the Fashion Plates Committee hosted our annual "wrap-up" brunch.  We always wait until after the holidays to get everyone together to celebrate the event.  It was so nice to see so many committee members and models there.  Fun to catch up after not seeing each other for a couple of months!  Piper is always willing to open up her home and we spent the day eating, drinking and chatting.  Such a great time with incredible women!

I made an amazing cinnamon bun french toast casseroleKatie gave me the recipe and everyone LOVED it!  I can't wait to make it again!

Piper and Tami's dogs always go a bit crazy while everyone is arriving.  So they got sent outside and both sat and stared at us until we let them back into the party.  Too funny!

So on a totally unrelated note. . . today I had to go to an all day training in Boston and it started at 8 AM. We were getting a big snow storm with the worst of it being during the morning commute.  So I made sure to allow for extra time to get there.  I left my house at 7 AM and got there in 30 minutes.  I parked and realized I didn't have my phone.  I KNOW I put it in my pocket before I left but it must have fallen out when I was shoveling/cleaning off my car.  So I go into training and there are no computers anywhere for me to hop on.  I was freaking out knowing it would get buried in snow when the snow plows came.

I didn't know anyone there but I asked the woman next to me if I could use her iPhone to send an email (I explained the situation).  I actually sent 2 - one to my mom so she wouldn't worry if she tried to text/email me and one to the condo association president.  She doesn't live in the building but I wanted to let her know in case she was coming over.  I don't know anyone I live with so there was nobody I could contact to look for it.  So needless to say by the time I got home at 5 PM there was a foot of snow and little hope of finding it.

The "find my iPhone" feature is great. . . kind of.  It shows me my phone is indeed at my address but it is not very precise.  I have no clue where it is.  I've "pinged" from my laptop about 50 times and can't hear the noise inside or out.  I'm guessing it is in a snow bank.  I'm so upset and mad at myself.  I shoveled for over an hour looking for it and no luck.  So please pray to St. Anthony for me!  Oh and pray that the snow all melts tomorrow (little hope of that considering the temps)!

If it was a normal day I would have just driven home from work to look for it in the morning.  But I couldn't do that since I was at this training.  SO SO frustrating!  Fingers crossed I can still find it and soon b/c I can't live w/o a phone and I have NO home phone!!!!

BAD DAY!  Trying to focus on the positive.  Trying really hard. . .


  1. Oh gosh, I would lose my mind, too. We just got rid of our house phone, and I'm always worrying I will somehow lose my cell. So sorry this happened, and I am sending LOTS of happy iPhone prayers your way. Hope the snow melts today!

  2. Ugh that totally sucks about your phone. I hope you find it.

  3. I'm so sorry about your phone! I so hope you find it and that it still works! Praying and crossing my fingers!

  4. That stinks about your phone. Hope you find it.
