I have a joke that I made up to tell you gurls. What do people who live in the city and people who live in the mountains have in common? It takes both of them two hours to drive forty miles. You probably don’t find that as funny as I do but I have a story behind my joke. It starts with the things that you will do for your children. My son in Tennessee decided that for Christmas, as a family gift, they would get a Newfoundland puppy. The breeder where he purchased the dog was only forty miles away from my house. But, when you live in the mountains, you have to remember the roads are not straight. Instead, we hade to go over several mountains, ride beside the river and cross bridges, and encountered a slew of “kiss your butt” curves. If you are not familiar with that term, it means that by the time your car goes around the extremely steep curve you could stick your head out the window and kiss your butt. Lol! I think that you get the idea. Haha. We went prepared to have a car sick puppy on our way home. We took baby wipes, paper towels, and even a dog seat cover just in case he threw up. However, we were pleasantly surprised since he made it home just fine. I thought you might want to meet Koda (because he looks like a Kodiac bear) and some of his new family. He will only be eight weeks old on Sunday. He is going to be HUGE! These photos are some that have been on my camera for a couple of weeks, and I figured that I needed to show them to you before Spring rolls around. Lol! I wore red yesterday, and I thought I might as well continue the theme today. This sherpa lined vest is one that I bought last year, and I love the colors of the plaid design. I have worn this with jeans, brown, and black pants and it looks equally as good with each of those. That is the beauty of wearing an item with multiple colors.
I am pretty sure that I have never worn the Nadine earrings on the blog before. These feature a dream disk and a wooden circle on a 3″ drop. These are lightweight and easy to wear. I added the Shirley necklace with burlap, beads, crystals, and even a pink flower. I thought the burlap went with the Sherpa on the vest. I must have been feeling extra sassy since I added the Karen rhinestone ring set in a leopard print and the Raina multi-strand bracelet. Plunder Design jewelry is very well made and very affordable which is why I love their items. I can splurge on myself and not feel guilty at all. Lol! To place an order, go here, hit the shop button, pick a party with my name in it, and have fun looking at all of the beautiful jewelry.
This is one of the few boots that I own that are in this dark brown color. I usually prefer the lighter colored boots that are a caramel color like this one. This is a pair by Marc Fisher that I bought last year. Red pants were not my first choice when I purchased this vest, but I think that they look good with it anyway. Sometimes it is good to think outside of the box and get out of your comfort zone. These are a pair of Pixie Pants from Old Navy. I love the Pixie Pants style because they are affordable, machine washable, they fit great, and they come in lots of colors and sizes. Go here to find a color or print that you like. I had that same issue this morning where my new blog was not showing up for everyone. I don’t think to check to make sure that it is showing up on Joe’s computer because I see it and assume that everyone else can also. Nope! That has not been the case here lately.
