I got to go and watch a basketball game tonight. Emersyn was playing, and the whole thing was quite comical. The ages for the children ranged from pre-k to 1st grade, so you can imagine how well they understood the concept of the game. Emersyn scored two baskets which was great! But, the bad part was…it was on the other team’s goal. Lol! We might have to have a few more practices so that they can learn the rules. Hahaha!
I live in a very rural part of Virginia. There are mountains and valleys all over the county, so I am used to curvy and winding roads. But, the road that we took to get to the game was a whole different level. The usual road that we take to get to the gym is curvy. But, we missed a turn and ended up going across a mountain ridge that was scary curvy. The road was narrow and barely had room to pass another car, plus there were no guardrails on the side of the road. I kept thinking that no one would ever find us if we ran off the road because we were not on the right road. The joys of living in the mountains are that you also don’t have cell phone service half the time. Thankfully, Joseph has been a truck driver for our lumber company, so he eventually got his bearings, and we found our way to the school. Whew! Who knew that going to a basketball game could be so nerve-wracking.
I don’t usually wear a lot of black, but I do have a few pants that I think “need” a black top. I wish that this top would have had a v-neck instead of the round neck, but I liked the hemline enough to overcome my reservations. I am thick through my waist, so the small amount of flare at the hemline helps to create a narrower waist. This top was one that I found when I was shopping at Cato Fashions the other day, and here is the link.
Gurls! Look at my new bracelet!!! While I was in Nashville, my Energizer Bunny Friend surprised me by gifting me this beautiful Louis Vuitton Essential V bracelet. We went shopping at a large mall, and we split up with a time that we were supposed to meet back up by. My daughter and I went in a couple of stores, and then we went into the Louis Vuitton store just to sightsee. EBF was at the counter looking at some things, and as soon as she saw me walk in the store, she turned around and said, “leave.” Lol! I had no idea what she was up to, but she did get my attention. The V has special meaning to both of us, so this was a very sweet and thoughtful gift.
I have seen several versions of leopard and cheetah jeans, but these have to be one of my favorites. I like how the print is smaller spots, instead of the large spots. I found these on the sales rack at Cato, and they were only 19.99. I am wearing my usual size 10, and they fit perfectly. I found them on the website, but they are very limited in sizes. If they don’t have your size, then you might try your local store to see if they are in stock. Here is the link to the pants.
I have no idea why I decided to do this silly pose when I was taking pictures, but I thought that you might need a laugh; so I decided to include it today. By the way, I know that you are used to following us bloggers, and you understand that when we link to clothing that we earn a small commission from the stores. That is one of the ways that we can pay for out website fees, hosting fees, etc. However, that is not always the case with me. In fact, there is not a single item that I linked to in today’s post that I am earning a commission on. Instead, I am merely showing you a cute outfit that you can purchase at a great price point.
