hot pants

Saturday evening was dinner out with the family.  I had ordered these pants from Juicy Couture (those darn brochures that come in the mail) and had been contemplating if I would be brave enough to wear these flashy pants.
After putting them on and getting the census in from the "family panel", they all told me to keep I did!
They actually were a lot of fun.  I think the pink is going to work well with not only black, but navy, charcoal, ivory and white.

Not only did Juicy Couture offer the fun pink but many other colors.  Check them out and see which ones you would wear.

It was a fashion kind-of day!

 A Day of Fashion!

Yesterday was such a fun day.  Heather and I, who is another Etcetera consultant, met up and traveled to see the Holiday line for Etcetera.
 The line looked amazing.  If you are looking for fabulous holiday pieces that will get you noticed or casual clothing than is not so common, the Holiday trunk show is where you will want to be.  Jackets and sweaters with zippers, a sweater with large beading down the arm, rock star dresses and the looks were unforgettable.  And, you will be too when seen in Etcetera.
 Photos were taken at the beautiful home of another one of the Etcetera consultants!
 Hope you are having a beautiful day!

Clothing~I bet you can guess

After our fun filled morning, we attended Kokoon's "clothing without borders" 25th Anniversary Celebration and Fashion Show.  The Kokoon Company is based out of Minneapolis.  What style!

Hair shortening-lengthening changes

Hair Day~Fun Day!
I love hair appointments.  I leave feeling like a new women.  I had been on a mission to grown my hair long but after a major shedding period, I wasn't liking the way it looked(thus the reason for fewer blogs).  So, I decided it needed to be cut to look healthier.
5 or so inches later, here it is!  Do #1.  I love Ally from Spalon Montage in Woodbury, she is a hair stylist who knows what she is doing (both with a cut and a color)
I know you are thinking, is this the before picture?  It's not!  This is actually after the cut.  My daughter, Brooke hooked me up with clip in extensions.  Ally cut them to make them transition better.  This is the look I was going for before the shedding.  Now, I can be short one day and long the next.  How fun it that?
  Do you love getting your hair cut?  Will you go from long one day to short the next and then back?
 Here are a few shots I snapped before my hair appt.

Pro Carts & my Favorite boys-Corrected :)

I don't believe I have ever done a post with my son in the photo.
Thursday was Parker's 16th birthday! He is my baby, can you tell by the below photo?  Parker was born 23" long, isn't that crazy?  Almost 2' and he has just kept growing, even when I told him not to grow up.
He has been a great kid.  Laid back, kind and loving, etc.  So glad that God gave him to me.
The above outfit it what I wore for his birthday celebration. 
Dinner out and then to go drive Pro-Carts, which was a new experience!  I've drove go-carts but not 40mph Pro-Carts.
Yes, I'm crazy about my boy and here is the other boy that I'm crazy about, as well.  Above, is my grandest boy Hudson.  I can't hardly go 1 day without seeing him or his sister.

Thankfully, he is replacing all the kisses that I used to receive from Parker.  Parker still gives them but not as many.  And, when Parker was young, I called them "chargers".  His kisses kept me fueled :)
I love this picture and I love to make him smile!
Speaking of smiles.  The above picture is my grandest daughter Harlow.  She is always full of smiles.  She is almost always happy & content.
That is truly how she is above.  My daughter, Brooke is making her laugh!
The boys are ready to go!  I had already had the pleasure of my 8 minute ride, which felt like 30 minutes.  40 mph is fast in a go-cart.
The boys are ready~John, Pat and Parker.  And, yes Parker's shirt tells it all, as he came in First!
We had to wear these fashionable helmet liners.
Harlow doesn't know what to think about these loud go-carts.
Hope you enjoyed this post and I encourage you to try new experiences!
Have a fashionable week!  Debbie
