If you tuned in to hear the rest of the red velvet cake story, I am going to have to apologize. I promise that I will finish that story tomorrow, but today I am going to talk about something else. I am pretty sure that you will forgive me, especially when I tell you the reason that I am skipping the cake story today. It is my grandpa’s birthday, and today he is turning 102!!! Yes, you read that correctly, my dad’s dad is 102 today, and I wanted to tell everyone so that you could wish him a happy birthday also!
Pa Jack looks fabulous. I swear that he is looking younger every time that I see him. He has the mind of a steel trap, and he never forgets anything. If he thinks that it has been too long since your last visit, you will surely hear about it when you visit the next time. Haha! As a child, I remember “trying” to spend the night with Granny and Pa, but daddy would conveniently drop by and talk me into coming home with him. Lol! But, daddy worked out of town for a few years when I was small, and we would stay with Granny and Pa while he was away.
I remember being spoiled rotten by them. One time I was jumping on the bed and my uncle, who was only five years older than me, was in the room too. Grandpa was NOT happy. He busted through the door and yanked my uncle up and gave him a spanking, but he never touched me. I felt terrible, so I pulled a George Washington, and said, “Grandpa, it was me that was jumping on the bed.” Without missing a beat, Pa said, “I am sure he deserved it for something,” and then he shut the door. Yep, I was spoiled rotten. I am not sure why my uncle never speaks to me to this day. LOL!!! When he was in the military in World War II. Pa and Granny with yours truly. Joe with Grandpa when he turned 100!Grandpa Jack on Sunday. He makes 102 look good!!!
There are times when you need to be dressy. I love this tweed dress with a split neck because it is an excellent alternative to the little black dress. Black is a stark color, and it doesn’t look good on everyone. This multi-tweed dress is smart and stylish, but nowhere near as severe as wearing all black. The details at the neckline and the waist are a nice visual touch bringing some uniqueness to the dress. The dress is lined, and it will need to be dry cleaned. For size reference, I am wearing my usual size 12, and it fits perfectly. The dress is from Talbots, and it is on sale over 100.00 off!!! Here is the link.
I have no idea where I got these black tasseled earrings. I think that they might have been in a FitFabFun box, but I don’t know that for sure. I found them the other day in a purse that I hadn’t carried in a while, so I thought that I would wear them for this outfit. They have multiple tassels that are attached to a tiny gold chain. The bracelet that I am wearing is a part of the Rachel set. It is black beads and a black druzy drop. I am not sure why the drop is looking green.
My black shoes are an old pair that I bought last year from Cato Fashions. I liked the way that they crisscrossed at the ankles; I thought it gave them a different look from my usual pumps that I wear.
Once again, I want to wish Pa Jack a big HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!
