Pantone's 2012 color of the year

Tango Tangerine wins the prize of being Panatone's color pick for 2012. Red-Orange, really? All I can say is YUCK! I won't be wearing this color due to my red hair but I'm sure it would look lovely on someone with blond hair. I've read that redheads can wear orange tones but they should wear them on their bottom half in a low dose such as a belt or shoes. I would think that advice would also fit for someone who shys away from bright colors but would like to have just a splash of color to brighten up a drab outfit during the cold winter. I do wear shades of red but think I will pass on the tangerine color this time around. You never know it might grow on me.

I must say that I do love the color in this flower print ♥

I Have Officially Retired My Ugg Boots For The Season

UGG.com
My Ugg boots are probably my favorite shoewear. I love them! My feet have a tendency to get cold but not while wearing these. I have read that men don't like them but I think they are cute as can be and my hubby doesn't complain. Yes, I even like them with shorts. Although I only wear them with jeans. With the sun finally coming out, sadly it's time to place them at the back of my closet.
Top: ModCloth Jeans: Levi's 515
The top I have on is the most softest thing I own and was purchased at my favorite internet clothing shop...ModCloth. It is the The-Great-Estate-Dress and is currently sold out. They have some really cool, unique items. This was listed as a dress but was a bit short for me since you can see through the bottom layer. I pulled it up a bit and it was perfect as a top with my Levis. It would be cute with leggings or a short skirt and tights too.  I'm still trying to get out of my Levis and into some more stylish outfits but I love them so. Still …

To be a dog person I sure have a lot of cats!

I have always considered myself a dog person because I like dogs better than I like cats. Cats are just too standoffish for me or at least the feral ones that I always have are. Very aloof and so irritating! 
I have had many dogs getting my first one at age 4. He was the runt of the litter and I named him Tootsie. He went everywhere I went growing up horseback riding, riding bikes or walking I remember he was always there. He lived until I was 22. I had multiple dogs sometimes and then I went for a few years with no pets whatsoever when I lived in the burbs. Then a few months after we moved back to the country my hubby wanted to buy me a puppy. I wanted a Bischon after watching a little one win the Westminster a few years beforehand. Her name was easy as I had been hearing the old song Some Velvet Morning by Lee Hazelwood and Nancy Sinatra. It kept popping up on my iPod so Fadra is her name. She is the best little furry buddy a girl could ask for!
I don't think I ever specificall…

Concert Series: Miranda Cosgrove

On August 10, 2011 we took our granddaughter to see Miranda Cosgrove, you know Nickelodeon's iCarly (she also played the band manager in School of Rock). Ashley knows every episode by heart and Miranda's solo album had just came out. We were all very excited! Especially my hubby who stated if he never watched iCarly again or listened to the cd it would probably be too soon for him. Of course, he had a blast regardless of his taste in tv and music!



We went shopping for Ashley before the show and I let her pick out her outfit. A little fashionista I do believe. The hat was totally her idea! All items are from Kohls. I picked up the white skirt for myself and my top was from the Modcloth end of summer sale last year. I think you all know my old kicks :o) I, thankfully, finally got a couple of new pairs which you can see here and here.

We had 4th row seats and they allowed the kids to go down front which meant Ashley had a front row view. She was up there hand slapping and danci…

The Cabbage Patch Kids inspired crochet hat

I just love Cabbage Patch Kids! Years ago my dad went on a mission to get me one when they were hard to find. With the invent of the internet you can almost find anything these days but back in the day it wasn't so easy. He finally succeeded but there was always a story about what a time he had. He was able to get me two in the long run. The first a little boy named Bobby George (my dad's name was Bobby also) just in case he couldn't get his hands on a girl with red hair. Luckily eventually someone was able to get the girl doll for him to give to me. I was so pleased to get them and he was so happy giving them to me that it is a memory I will always treasure. Whenever I think of Cabbage Patch dolls I always think of him. I get them out once in awhile and clean them up but I hope to display them after I paint my second bedroom which I hope to make whimsical and colorful. Arlene looked like she could use a bit of sprucing up when I got her out for pictures so I'm not su…

Dreaming of Paris this Morning

It is still raining which is making me blue. Day after day it keeps falling. I believe we have broken the last record set in 1936. I was just thinking how nice it would be to get outta here and go somewhere dry. I guess Las Vegas would be my best bet since it's in the desert but for some reason my thoughts have turned to Paris. Wouldn't that be nice? Too bad I'm not part of the jet set so I will only be visiting in my mind. A girl can dream, can't she?


These Alexander McQueen boots could walk me right through inches of water :o) Alexander McQueen

Or maybe this little fellow could just lift me over the flood! He looks pretty strong but he's going to have to put on some clothes before he starts carrying me around! lol

Music Monday - Kenny Wayne Shepherd

Why yes, that is me with Noah Hunt, lead singer for the Kenny Wayne Shepherd band! This photo was taken at a local venue in 2009 when he was traveling solo with Blues Traveler. He's a Cincinnati boy so he wasn't far from home. Looks like we have both cut our bangs since then. I am thrilled to see he is back with Kenny Wayne for his new album, Goin' Home. I have been a fan since the beginning and I have seen them many times. One of my all time favorites to see live. I love love love the new album!

Did I say that I LOVE the new album? Yes I do, I do, I do!



Concert Series - Lynyrd Skynyrd

In February of 2011 it was announced that none other than Lynyrd Skynyrd was going to play a show at my favorite venue. Not until Labor Day weekend though. It was a long time off but, of course, we had to go. The Fraze only holds 4,300 so I knew I had to get tickets when they went on sale. I got tickets right off the bat and they were down front but for some reason I never noticed the "limited view" disclosure at the time I got the tickets. But, who cares, right? We were there! As it grew closer to the show it appeared that my hubby was not going to be able to attend with me and everyone I knew was already going or could not go, so that left my granddaughter. We had attended Miranda Cosgrove (see here) at the same place a few weeks earlier and she had attended the sold out Ringo Star and his Allstars show a couple years beforehand so I didn't have to worry about her being a newbie but I was a bit concerned about her being a child. A child at a Lynyrd Skynyrd show! lol I…
