Let’s begin with my reveal for my favorite outfit of last week’s Pinterest Inspiration Challenge.  While I surprisingly liked all of them and would wear them in my real life, this is my mot favorite:

So when your third child is turning 17 and he jokes you about being old, how do you retaliate?  If you are a budding fashion blogger, you run to your closet and put together a fantastic outfit and say to yourself “I look GOOOOD!”

I knew I had succeeded in my goal to show that b’day boy that I am not old, when my husband came home… His first words were, “That outfit looks great!”  Since red is his favorite color, no surprise there….

We took the boys out to dinner at Outback where our oldest son is working while in college…. We didn’t even see him though, as he works the carry out department.. I have to say that I am getting use to this shrinking of my family as there are so many times that it is just the four of us instead of six… I really don’t mind the smaller group… With the way I spaced out children every 4 1/2 years it feels like it did in the beginning when it was just the two older ones…It feels comfortable, but I am looking forward to Tuesday night when Ashley is home and we are all together for the next 5 days… Last year I asked my sister to host my brothers for Thanksgiving and continued it this year, we just need time for just the six of us… Christmas they will all be over for breakfast and dinner, as has been our tradition.

I have say I am so excited about this outfit. I purchased these red boots a few years ago and love them…. The top is thrifted and the sweater I’ve had for a while. these pants are   ones I had purchased a few months ago and couldn’t quite fit into, as they are a size 6.  I have been searching thrift stores for 6 months for just the right red purse and finally found it last week.  The funniest part is that it is a Nine West, the same brand as my beloved red boots!  How funny is that??!!  Can you believe there was a time I avoided red and didn’t think it worked well with my fair skin??
