You Can’t Rain on My Parade!

Posted on: October 2, 2015

A Rainy Day May Get Some People Down, 

But Not Me!  

It’s an Excuse to Showcase My Purple Thrifted Rainboots! 


Not the best photos today, as my dear son stood on the porch , 

while I stomped through the oversaturated grass to my favorite tree.  

Wearing skirts and dresses without tights or leggings will be upon me before I know it, 

so instead of wearing pants, I just had to try my boots with a skirt, lol. 


Of course there is a down side to wearing a skirt

when there’s wind and rain , as a preview to 

the upcoming Hurricane.  

I actually went shopping and got set for the impending storm today. 

Doing so before the weekend is so much better as stores are going to be

crazy and ruinning out of things by Saturday.

I couldn’t help but share this picture that showed up on my Facebook this moring. 

It’s a two year old at the Navy pier having a blast while all the adults were just huddled, waiting for the 

ship to arrive home after it’s six month deployment. 


Here is a close up of my mother’s pin that I strung on a chain to create my necklace.


This one is clearer because the rain subsided for a brief moment.  

I have to say it was fun being out in and about in my rainboots, 

walking in puddles instead of around them.

My Eddie Bauer (also thrifted) nylon goose down filled  vest came in handy as it kept my back dry! 

Dear Readers, Thanks for Stopping By!  

I wish you all a Fabulous Weekend and ask that you keep the East Coast in 

your prayers that this impending Hurricane takes it easy on us! 


I am grateful that my husband had time to go grocery shopping and a  chance for us all to get out of the house together.. 

I am grateful for our really good quality umbrellas that helped us stay dry , as well as help me get our stubborn dog to go outside to do his business…. Yes , picture me in my rainboots holding an umbrella over my dog chastising him to “Go Potty!”  

I am grateful that I had begun to take out some Fall Clothing despite our extended Sumer temps, so i had this vest to grab as a completer piece today! 

I am grateful that my son who took our rabbit for the week is enjoying her company and the pick me up this week before midterms.  

I am grateful for somethihng to look forward to on this rainy day, as my Steelers have a Thursday Night Game agaimst their rival Ravens.
