Ok, I just have to join in this boot thing, so here are my own pink boots! One problem, when I got them home, I realized the lady put one swede finish and one not-so-shiny finish (but not swede either) boot in the box!! I have been wearing them, of course, because 1) Justin is not close to me and that’s where we bought them. 2) They were discounted or on sale or something and probably would not have taken them back anyway.

This is my entry for Becky’s September month of In the Pink, I play along when I can (or have something to contribute). I’m linking to Cee because I’m not sure how to link to Becky. 😉 Click on the link that says Cee to “see” how to play along!



My own Gypsy’s pink, of course!

These are a brand of Justin boots, the town of Justin is about an hour north of where I live. They have boot outlet stores, which is where I got my cuties here. I wish I was brave enough to pull off the boots and dress thing, but so far, I’ve only worn them with jeans. I know, no one can see the pink that way! Maybe someone can lend me some fashion tips, what style of dress, do you wear short socks…I don’t know any of that.

Share Your World-Better Late Than Never

I know, I know…Cee’s Share Your World was yesterday but I couldn’t get to it as I was busy with my Dad in the morning (he had his endoscopy yesterday) and then writing a story for TLL (The Last Line) which I also didn’t finish yet. Here are my late answers anyway:

What would you name your autobiography: My Life Was a Hot Mess

What do you prefer, sweet, salty, or buttery? Ugh, I have to choose? Sweet…Even if my sweet comes from Stevia these days (most of the time), I still find myself craving fat bombs or desserts over real food.

My stack of fatbombs!

What’s the finest education? Um, the school of hard knocks. I did not finish college, in fact, I barely got started before I got pregnant and decided to concentrate on family life and work. However, I had many teaching experiences over the course of my life in the military, of course in my raising, and now as a married woman with 3 kids. Aaaaand, I’m a voracious reader. My belief is that a college education costs far more than it’s worth. Experience counts more these days.

What did you appreciate or what made you smile this past week? Man, I just love it when my kids come to visit, I got to see all 3 boys, two of their girlfriends and one of their girlfriends sons. We enjoyed spending time in the pool and eating a meal together, even if it was brief…it’s better than not at all.
