My Other Self

I saw this great suggestion over at Ocean Breezes and Country Sneezes the other day, to share my "other self"... I got a kick out of the idea and decided to give it a try!

Here goes.....

My other self wears boots over leggings...

And cowboy boots with flirty skirts.
Somehow my very well worn and abused Ariats don't seem like they fit the fun and flirty category.

Her tile floors look like this...
not scattered with dry cereal, dry lumps of dirt dropped from shoes or dark circles where water once dripped and dust immediately called a reunion.

She cooks dinner like this for her family, just a little more often...
Hhmmm... I could try these!

Her home always displays fresh, bright flowers.
Clayton is doing a great job of helping me try!

And she is much better at remembering and recognizing friends' anniversaries.

Then there is this cabin...

with the morning view... 

and the evening views.

Where my love can do this with our boys. (That's him!)

And I can do this  :)  (That's Not me...)

There are lots of these...

... and these!

And there is Always be Lots of This! Maybe even more...
That's us, with our friends and family... we already do this!

I think she's got it pretty good, but then.... But really, I don't have it too bad either. ;)

Your other self's boots with flirty skirts reminds me of a funny story!

This past Thursday was Open House and our school decided to do a cultural celebration of the culture of our students (there is one main immigrant culture at our school)- I'll spare you my opinion of it and get right to the story. We were supposed to dress in our national costume. I was born and raised her, my parents were also born and raised her. Literally less than 10 miles from where I sit now. I had NO idea what to wear! So, I went with what I would wear to a normal Open House a purple shift dress with ruffles on the neck. As I was walking out the door in the morning I grabbed my boots (not the boots covered in mud and other things but my nice cowgirl boots) to throw on in the evening. I tried them on with the dress and they looked really cute! After school I was tell another teacher that I was going to put my boots on to show my culture. She wanted to see how they look and they didn't fit!! Like, really didn't fit - they didn't even come close! It was like I was trying to pull on a child's boot!! It was pretty funny! (maybe you had to be there - it doesn't seem as funny now) I never realized how much my feet expand when I am on them all day!

I need new boots!

LOL @Sarah! I completely understand! On my lunch break a couple of years ago, I bought a really cute pair of brown, square toe heels. I brought them home, put them in my closet and couldn't wait to wear them. A couple of months later, I pulled them out, so excited... and they were a Full Size Too Big! Ahh... guess I won't be shopping for shoes at noon on a warm summer day again. :( They have since been passed on to my niece for dress up!
Karen, Kate & Dawson - I enjoyed spending a little time with my other self... think I'll have to get together with her again sometime! :) Happy Monday, ladies!
