Western Style

We've been invited to a Western Harvest Festival tonight. I like dressing myself and my family up for themed events like this. While getting ready this morning I remembered a post that Darling Darleen did a while back and was inspired to put a braid in my hair (you'd think as a cosmetologist I'd do more with my hair on a daily basis). I broke out my sweet buckle I inherited from my dad too. I wish I had a cowboy hat and boots, then I'd feel my ensemble was complete. Someone once told me I have a "regal" nose (a nice way of saying your nose is big with a bump on it). The picture above I think shows it off real well.

You are not alone with your nose...my nose looks exactly the same. Must be the good ol Christensen genes. I think you look beautiful...nose and all! Have so much fun at the festival tonight!

So, the festival ended up having no western theme whatsoever. I am really glad that I could not find a hat and boots, whew. I hope in the future when I am on the PTA that if I were to throw a themed party at my child's school, I would be able to keep to the theme. So, if someone did end up dressing up, they wouldn't feel so out of place. Sheesh, again, that was a close encounter of embarassment.

I love your buckle. I have always wanted a buckle like that and some cowboy boots with a skirt. I guess it is the Reno girl in me.
