Gurl’s, thank you soooo much for all of you kind comments and prayers for my daughter. She has been discharged and is ready to get back on the road again. I especially want to thank Cindy, who offered to drive 3 hours to go and see Ashleigh for me. She even offered to let Ashleigh and her friend come and stay at her house to recuperate. Wow! I was brought to tears. I truly think of you ladies as friends and messages like that show me that I was correct. The doctors fussed at Ashleigh and told her that they needed to talk about her pain tolerance level. Apparently, they thought she should have been in extreme pain and that she should have gone to the doctor days earlier. Ashleigh thought that she had slept wrong on the boat and that her ribs were just sore. She is an amazingly strong woman who is tough as nails. I laughed and told Joe that anyone living in our house had to have a high pain tolerance level. Lol!!! I just bought this shirtdress the other day. A shirtdress is a classic style dress but it is not one that I wear a lot. I am not sure why since they are very versatile. You can wear a skirt over the bottom for a different look and you can even leave it open to a cardigan/coat look. The leopard print is a classic print so this dress will be something that you can wear for a long time. If this is too short for you then add leggings instead of the tights that I added. I am wearing a size 10 and it fits great. This is machine washable so you don’t have to worry about babying this dress. That is perfect for me! This is by Topshop and click here to read all about the dress. When I am on the road I don’t take a lot of my jewelry with me. I usually only take a few pieces that I think I can wear with a lot of different things. I didn’t pack a necklace for this dress and I just felt weird today without one. Lol! I did get to add the Channing earrings and the Tawny bracelet. I have a funny feeling that these two items may not be coming home with me to Virginia. My mother appears to have taken a fancy to these two and I’ll be leaving them for her. Lol! By the way, the Bronte necklace is back in stock. If you liked this necklace, see here how I wore it, then you better hurry to get it. It sells out so very fast every time they get it back in stock. Here are all of the matching pieces. Just go to my website HERE to place your orders and be sure to pick a party with my name in it. I brought a pair of black ankle boots and these brown leather boots and I couldn’t decide which one looked better. I asked my fashion guru (aka as my mom) and she picked the brown boots. How do you think she did? This pair is a favorite of mine and I bought them YEARS ago at TJ Maxx. They do not have a label on them so other than saying Italian leather, I have no idea about the brand. They are super soft and are lined with fur on the inside. The block heel is comfortable to walk in and I don’t worry about turning an ankle as much when I wear this style heel.
Here is the back view of this dress. It is never my favorite view but I figured that you might want to see the length. How cute is this gang!!! I took this picture after church when they came by for lunch. I grabbed them really fast before they could run off to play and before they dropped food all down there shirts. Lol! The kids loved the “timer” on the camera and watching for it to countdown before it took the picture.
