Remix Challenge- Day 10

Posted on: March 23, 2013

Well, I am over that blasted stomach flu and managed not only to get dressed for blog photos, but to get out and run a few errands… 


My carry over item just so happens to be the wonderful favorite Navy boots! 


Although I am so ready to for Spring, I am certainly not going to complain about another opportunity to wear my favorite boots.. This is the second season I have felt that way, wonder if next year I will take them for granted?   This jean skirt was a recent thrift find by Hillard & Hanson, which is an unknown brand to me.   I loved the opportunity to use my new Aigner purse that I thrifted last week!


I was out running errands with my seventeen year old ,when he suddenly lowered his voice and said, ” That guy just did a double take to check you out!, that’s gross!”  You see , this has happened the last few times he has been out with me and is noticing how often it occurs. I just giggled and said, “I am enjoying this as it hasn’t happened in years,( since I had gained the weight)..”  He just giggled and said, ” I know,but I still think it’s gross!”  He went on to say that all guys do this and he knows it is in their nature and he himself does it,but it is so different to see it being done to his mother…  We just happened to be walking by a mother at the Red Box with her teen son wearing the more ” Mom” uniform of jeans and a sweater with ugg boots… She snapped nastily at her son and I asked Nicholas if he could appreciate not only that I dress nicely but that I behave nicely because not all kids have what he has in me… He nodded his head and agreed. He does know, he was the child who two years ago out of nowhere told me , “my wife is going to like you more than she likes me because you are just so nice to everyone!”   Best compliment in my Lifetime!!  I know something he doesn’t know yet, but he has that same trait in himself! I can’t wait until he recognizes the truth in that!  

Dear Readers,  if you have kids, don’t you love the teen years and the conversations you can now have with them?!   I swear these last two years before graduation have been the best with each of my kids… So glad I am here when he gets home from school and that he comes to find me!  If you have younger kids, you have so much to look forward to!

Gratitude:  I am so grateful to be feeling better!  I am grateful to have such a wonderful relationship with my 3rd child ( I, too was a 3rd out of 4 child).  I am over the moon and want to shout from the rooftops because Connor , my youngest who the school said had a learning disability in reading and writing said to me this morning, ” I want to be a writer , I have a writer’s brain and so many story ideas in my head”

I hate Ugg boots! I need to get on my soap box about it! Love the story with your son!

My entire family can’t stand Uggs! They are just so unflattering and no one who has any taste in style could dare to wear them… tacky!!! there, part of my soapbox, I’ve got more!

I love those boots – especially with that skirt!
Uggs are like Snuggies for your feet – ack!
