My Dear Readers , I committed to a week of Dresses and Skirts, 

and when today came along, I wanted to wear my purple snow boots

and decided to give up the idea of a dress for bowling day…

Our snow from yesterday melted away as the day went on…

It will be replenished tonight as another storm heads our way with up to 8 inches…

Which I know is laughable to northerners, but even with just two inches yesterday we had hundreds of accidents and people going off the road.    We even had one that hit a local school bus full of kids yesterday afternoon…

So, styling this outfit from the ground up, 

I knew wanted the purple poncho and thought patterned pants would be fun. 

The yellow sweater is a thrifted lambswool and angora, so soft and warm!

I really love the purple and yellow color combo…

I have a pair of subdued purple animal print jeans that I’d love to pair with this combo in the future

 In this outfit, I definitely didn’t feel the same sassy and spunky vibe

that my dresses have given me this week… 

I did however feel much more comfortable bowling in pants…

This poncho if from Old Navy and one I thrifted,

I like the shorter length of this for easy styling with my petite height. 

Gratitude

I am grateful that my son bowled his highest came to date today. 

I am grateful to the parent who told the bowling alley so they could announce it over the loudspeaker, as he felt so proud and happy.  

I am grateful that my son found something he likes and is willing to work hard to get better, this is a first for this child! 

I am grateful that the guys went outside and a snowball fight after bowling ( it’s moments like that , when I notice the loss of his brother away at college) 

I am grateful that my son so willingly and with a positive attitude interrupted his xbox live game to take my blog photos, (he is normally agreeable, but this felt special)  

I am grateful for an hour long phone call from my daughter and the joy it brings, as well as the tears it brings, as I remember my mother and miss her dearly.
