Wicked SmartHats....

Howdy folks!

Today I had my 2nd jewelry show of the season. Check out these wicked smart hats I found. Aren't they adorable? I got them in 3 colors, pink, turquoise blue and gold.

I added the rhinestone bling and voila'....Everyone's jealous (well, not everyone). I thought they'd be a cool little conversation item to wear to shows and set me apart from the rest of the other vendors.

I can just hear it now....customers wearing my jewelry as they shop at other vendors booths, and people seeing my designs and saying, "Where did you get that adorable jewelry piece?"...They of course would say, "From the chick in the hot pink diva hat, where else?".

I had a really great show. Thank you to my sweet friend Crede' for hosting. I have a few more shows left before Christmas. So, get your orders in early.

Luke wanted his picture taken in the blue hat. Can you see why? He's flippin adorable in it. Guess daddy wouldn't be too happy that he's in a tiara. Oh well!!! Hey, you're only 4 once, right?

Shecky's Girl's Night Out

My BFF and I went to this fun little gig last night in Downtown Dallas. It was called Shecky's Girl's Night Out. It was at the Fashion Institute Gallery. I bought the tickets like a year ago after someone told me what a fun time they had last year. Tickets at the time were 2 for $25. Let me tell ya, we GOT our money's worth. We both got gift bags FULL of fun stuff. Easily worth $100 ea. bag (see the pic's of the goodie bag stuff). We got to shop at various vendors and score some HOT fashion items. Just look at the adorable fur-lined clogs I got. You all know how I can't live without zebra print anything. If I see it, I have to buy it. Shecky's sponsors these Girl's Night Out's all over the country, NY, etc...You should google them and go to one when they are in your area.

Oh, I forgot to mention that while you shop they walk around giving out free wine, margarita's and champagne. Maybe that's why I spent so much money! Not really.


Woody Rice...

This morning Luke woke up and decided he wanted to dress like Woody from Toy Story. So, I said, "What the heck, let the boy have some fun". He loves Woody and Buzz Lightyear. He said that he wants all Woody and Buzz stuff for Christmas and the "Swinky" (slinky dog) from the movie. He is so cute, he kept walking around saying, "There's a snake in my boots!". We even went to Target in our outfit. He got lots of smiles and "I love your boots Woody" comments. It is fun having an adventurous 4 year old. I love that boy to pieces. He even went out in the backyard and picked mommy flowers. He's gonna make some girl real happy one day! So thoughtful, and such a gentlemen.


God needed another angel....

My sweet friend Tana defeated leg amputation, hip, lung and stomach cancer shortly after 10pm last night. She is now in the loving arms of her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

Tana was a special lady, always smiling and never met a stranger. She played piano at our old church when Jason and I used to sing in the choir. She was an extremely talented and gifted pianist.

Sweet Tana you will be missed by all. Please pray for her husband John and two young sons. Life will be so hard to go on without her. Fly high, sweet Tana. Now you can run with both legs.

This Halloween brought out some "interesting" people. Most interesting was my husband "Violet". A couple of his employee's went and picked out the Halloween outfits for 3 of the managers at work. They all looked like this, only I think Violet was the cutest. "She" sure had cute legs in her black leggings. Oh, and her breasticles were quite perky. I almost think she might have had some "work" done. Yes, he will probably kill me for posting this pic, but oh well, right??

On to the non-crossdresser of the family. Luke had a blast being Buzz LightYear this year. He showed everyone his laser superpowers and had fun trick or treating.

On our candy begging excursion we even ran into a few Presidential Candidate's wives. Crazy Inga and Lisa dressed up like Michelle Obama and Cindy McCain. It was a hoot!

I had to beg Luke to take his costume off. He wanted to sleep in it--wings and all. Cuzzin Beau was a cute little ghost. He kept reminding me he was a "fwendly"(friendly)ghost, not a scary one.

Fun was had by all! Hope everyone else had a safe time this year.
