Along Came Friday

Ok, so I didn't find any wearable treasures in Excelsior this weekend. I did, however, find a sweet antique shop where I picked up an old book about famous golfer, Bobby Jones. I was hoping to find a Nancy Drew book, having been inspired by a recent post at The Cat's Pajamas. Not much luck.


Friends Keely and Greyley joined me at Dunn Bros. (great music, btw). Greyley, age 10 (her dad is in the band), won three out of three games of Yahtzee. Kicked my tukus, she did, with her mad dice-rolling skills.


Rumor had it that there was a Fireman's ball going on somewhere close by. Sure 'nough. After the concert, Keely and I hopped on a school bus that transported us to the local fire station. We didn't stay long after a random drunk guy wouldn't leave Keely alone. Regardless, it was a fun 45-minute adventure.


We couldn't figure out how to take a good picture in the dim lighting, so please just ignore the glow. This is the outfit that my husband didn't like. Funny, because there's really nothing to it. I think it was the color combinations that threw him off. Orange shirt, denim jumper, gray tennies, white & blue scarf... It's nothin' spectacular, no need for a fuss.


There are just a few things from childhood that I can't seem to let go of. Polka dots being one. Jumpers and Rompers being another. I found it very appropriate that I wore this on a school bus.


Here's Keely at the ball...it was more like a hoedown, but whatever. I think she's the cutest girl on the planet. Look out, boys.

I think you look adorable. Steve, trust your wife.

I, too, canNOT let go of polka dots. In fact, I think I might love them now more than EVER.

Keely looks so great. Sniff. She's growing up, that girl.
