I Am Now My Mom...
Yes, I have done it...I have officially become my Mother. I went shopping yesterday for stuff that I needed for my adventures in the Smoky Mountains, remember I mentioned a while back that I am taking a week long photography class there. Am I excited, oh boy, yes. I needed to buy some much needed hiking shoes, I figured my tennis shoes just weren't the best choice for stepping on rocks, sticks & stones. I went to a place called Bass Pro Shop, oh lord, is that a place for men or what?? Fishing supplies, hunting supplies, and everything in between. Although they do have a ladies section, the other stuff for guys took up way more space. I saw all those fellows from Duck Dynasty, their faces plastered on mugs, plates, rugs, towels and more. I think I even spotted Larry the Cable Guy. Anyway, I giggled when the check-out lady asked me if I wanted a frequent buyers cards....that just might be the only time I visit that store since hunting, fishing and RVing are not in my "fun" time box. Now don't get me wrong, I think it's great that people enjoy being part of the outdoor crowd, I just find different ways to enjoy it.
Anyway, while I was out, I decided I needed to run by Kohl's and see if I could pick up a new warm top or two....the weather forecast is predicting weather in the 50's for most of the week, and in the 30's & 40's early mornings. I know we are going to be out shooting sun rises and sun sets so a few more toasty sweaters were on my list. OK, this is where my Mom comes into the story. As I was wandering the store, I decided I could probably use another pair of jeans, I always need to go to the Petites section for these. Now, I am not exceptionally tiny, just short, thus the need for petites. I came across some elastic waist stretch jeans. My Mom had some of those and I thought they were so "old lady"....well, I decided to try them on. OK, that's it....I am now my Mom. They were so comfortable, no zippers digging into your stomach especially when you are bending way down to get a good shot of whatever. And they had stretch to them, hot diggity dog, I bought 3 pair. I don't know about you, but I don't tuck my shirts in anymore, never wear a belt, unless it is one of those fancy ones that sorta just hang there and look pretty, so I thought whose gonna know that I am wearing elastic waist pull up jeans. (except all of you, but I know you will definitely keep my secret).
So here's my little Trick or Treat guy that I love...skinny legs and all
And another gnarly pumpkin with a great stem, this is probably my favorite that I have found this year. I like it so much I surrounded it with a fall colored wreath...she is like a queen sitting on her throne. (Oh I am definitely getting carried away with this pumpkin thing, but what character, don't you agree??)
So today, I am packing, getting the house in order since I don't like coming home after a week with a mess in the sink or elsewhere....and if there is time I will grab my camera to capture some more beauty while it's still here. Hope you all have a grand week.
Until next time.....
