My daughter-in-law is having her birthday party at my DH's cabin this weekend. Kellie & Don have invited a whole herd of friends to come celebrate the birthday (and her brother Trevor's birthday, too). And Memorial Day will have its due.
Kellie decided she wanted to have a cowboy/cowgirl party. She requested that all the attendees dress the part. Now, here comes the confession. I have had boot lust for quite some time. I saw these amazing embroidered boots in a catalog. I have visited the website just to look at the photo of them, and drool. They were costly. I don't need them. Really. I. Do. Not. Need. Them.
But then Kellie decided we all needed to dress the part. So, you could say that now I did need them! (Not having any boots of the cowboy variety....)
I bought them. I love them. I have been keeping them on my dresser, like art. I admire them every time I enter or exit my bedroom. They are just so dang cool!
And then, of course, I needed a shirt....
I am not really a Western shirt sort of girl. I am more the ethnic, embroidered, hippie-style (from my youth) kind of girl. I found this shirt, which appealed to my Boho side and still had a sort of Western wear vibe. I did not need it. Really. I didn't. But.....for the party. For Kellie....you wouldn't want me to disappoint Kellie by not dressing the part, would you?
I do have to admit I think I'll be a bit more Rodeo Drive than rodeo!
