1. emum asked me what LOL stood for.
2. Both ebrothers are running in a half marathon with me next weekend. Lots of trash talking. Carter asking Robert if there is a “Big and Tall” division.
3. I’ve been listening to this song on repeat for the past 3 weeks. “All my life I’ve been good, but now, ohhhh I’m thinking what the h”
4. I’m obsessed with my Crock Pot.
5. I can’t get enough Brad Womack, and I hate to say it, but even with the horrible dye job, sweet little Emily won me over.
6. I found a new great neighborhood restaurant – Nino’s on Cheshire Bridge. You feel like a mob bust can happen at any second.
And that’s what you’ve missed! On elaney.

Kind of how we’ve been feeling lately.

Few things here. So, to start, the title of the post has nothing to do with what we’re about to write about, but “Ev’ry Thug Needs a Lady” came on in spin class yesterday, and we thought to ourselves, as we often ponder blog posts while exercising, that there had to be a blog post that this song / concept could be worked into. So while we are not working in this concept, we are working in spin class. The real title for this should probably be “Pushing Through.”
Confession. Lately, we’ve sort of struggled to write elaney. In the past, it seemed like ideas were coming out of our ears, but lately we haven’t felt inspired / have been busy with other things / have really gotten sick of the design / are starting to worry that people think we’re shallow…etc. In all fairness, elaney has been in existence for 2 and 1/2 years. Longer than we wore braces. Longer than driving years in high school. Longer than My So-Called Life was on the air. And with anything, you just get tired of stuff.
But, also as with anything, it’s the pushing through the hard times that makes for the glory at the end of the day. That lesson just becomes more clear to us the longer we work. The longer we have friendships that go through rocky times. The longer you go through anything. And yesterday, as Reader Kenny and elaney sang along to the final song at class “I Can’t Wait to See You Again,” we were once again reminded, as we learned from A League of Their Own, “the hard parts are is what makes it good.”

It is with sincere embarrassment that the editorial staff writes this notice. This week, the elaney Roundtable (essentially the Board of Directors – comprised of some of the leading Fashion / Beauty editors in the world – all Ivy League graduates, published authors, etc – completely confidential unfortunately) and the elaney editorial team are at our annual planning meeting in Cabo San Lucas. While we’ve been strategizing and speculating all of the major tips and trends for 2010, we left the interns with the responsibilities for this week. Of course, we left them with a detailed editorial calendar, as well as a list of celebrities to interview. It is with deep regret that we share that the interns have spent their time watching The View and sipping wine at lunch.
While we can’t make up for the past week, we can assure you that we’ve taken the appropriate action and all will be back to normal next week.
