It's super cold right now, and as I glance out my window I can see that my street is blanketed with enough snow for me to have to put on my heavy boots and not the cute ones I wore on Sunday to Ms. DeeDee's 44th Annual Fashion Show! I didn't care how much snow was on the ground, I wasn't about to miss this event, and I could tell by the amount of extra chairs needed at the venue for the sold out crowd that I wasn't the only one, and if you have ever been to any of Ms. DeeDee's past shows then you know exactly why.
