Practicing my pink...

You have got to love this "girly-pink" rug.  My cousin's daughter has this and I had to copy the picture.  It reminded me that I am a tom-boy (even at this age) and need to practice my "pink-ish" skills.  My youngest son is getting married in May 2011 - not really being a frou-frou gal I am not to concerned about all the hopla BUT a few months ago I saw what I consider the "perfect dress for me".  ON SALE.  So after several days of going back to look at it - I then saw a pair of shoes that "were to die for", as they say.  BUT could I walk in them???  So, I bought the shoes...took them to the store with the dress...put the outfit on and walked out of the dressingroom in search of approval from a stranger!  Keep in mind, I mainly buy things and bring them home - I hate trying things on in the store BUT needed to make a decision.  So, two lovely strangers, that looked at me strangely - gave their vote.  I took it all home.  The dress and shoes have been in the closet.  When I saw Krissy's rug picture - it reminded me - I better get practicing with those shoes so I don't break an ankle this May.  I have bad knees and walk like a tank so... I have taken them out of the box - set them next to the shoes I wear most ... let the walking begin!!!
Hope you all have a great week - keep pinking for breast cancer awareness!!!  I try to buy products that sport the pink ribbon and support the cause with donations - I am a label reader!  I hope that you will stop by How Sweet the Sound and see all the great blogs Beverly has listed for Pink Saturday... each visit is an eye opener - I love blog hopping BUT this has been a 6 day work week and I haven't been able to visit so please forgive me.  I am looking forward to tomorrow - a quiet Sunday morning, cup of coffee in hand and traveling through PinkLand!
cheers, dana
