LOVELY Day For A Caftan At The Zoo, Stacey!



I think we all know it's not about the zoo, not about my oldest and youngest bonding so beautifully at the zoo,


or that the weather was spectacular for our trip...or even that my son very clearly determined the sex of that cougar (I think) up on the fence above the walkway and let us all know what he thought!Not even that the wharthog (my personal favorite) saw his shadow. Nope. I think the point is that NOBODY told me not to wear this hideous top outside, that the style combined with the loud color/design scheme made my... ahem...upstairs look very wrong among other issues. Issues such as the cut of the sleeves. Only if my arms were thin, not that they aren't. Okay, they aren't! Nope. Nobody said a *&$# thing about it all day long. Monday night I snagged this at Target on clearance for $4.00 and some change. There were bunches and the price was irresistable. Because apparently EVERYONE ELSE KNEW IT!!!
This is so upsetting to me, I'm going to bed. I've neglected you, my friends, in my commenting of late. I promise I'll be back in Stacey-form tomorrow.
Not making excuses, but here is mine: I was up until 1am typing for deadline day, rose at 6 am for zoo day, home for 30 minutes, 45 minutes each way for a diving meet, home, then laundry. I still might have mustered energy to speak my mind to y'alls posts, but then I downloaded the pictures. And I'm speechless!
PS--Cody took second and I'll post a dive on Friday, I know how much you love the dive posts. You do love them...right?

Ok, so yeah I hate it when that happens ... you see a GREAT bargain... and it's not until later that you realize WHY it's such a great bargain LOL

Glad you had a great day at the zoo. I wish we had a zoo... other than the one we live in, that is.

Hugs,
Dawn

Stacey, stacey, stacey...honey...don't you know you look H-O-T in anything you wear. Even if it looks like I would paint in it. I'm just sayin'!

Sorry I didn't call you back last night. I didn't get your message until later. Tuesday nights are visitation nights so I was on the road too. I'll try again today...

Stacey, you are gorgeous in whatever you wear.

I totally love the first pic of sis & bro bonding - you really should put that one in the digital scrapbook.

Hey, I'm hoping you wear your new $4.00 find tonight. I would love to see it and I'm sure you look great in it.

I hope you got some sleep. One of the reasons I hate pictures of myself, it always shows something I don't want to see or place in my reality. I think you look terrif.
As always. Hugs.

Hi Stacey!!! Glad you had fun at the zoo!!! Um... maybe you can use that TOP to pitch your tent??? *WINK*... although the only thing I prefer to pitch is a good ole Southern Baptist fit... which I did over the BIG RED SIGN!!! :o)

AND YES... SAFETY DANCE... cause if your friends don't dance then they are NO FRIENDS of mine!!! :o)~

Lala :o)

Okay the zoo trip looked like fun! Lets do that sometime with the boys.

Girl, I am sorry but Jeff is coming home tonight, so we are waiting for him to get here and going out to eat. Family time you know. I hate to miss, but think we need to do this.

Will call you tomorrow! Get the scoop of what went on in Class!

I heart the dive posts! Especially since baseball posts are about to start happening at mine and I know you'll love those too. ;) No, really, I enjoy reading about the accomplishments of your kids.

And, granted you skewed the pic, but I see nothing wrong with your top. Nope, not a thing wrong with it.

Pinks & Blues said...

Ok... to-do list...
Zoo with the boys.
And Target. Because I like the top. I swear.

The zoo trip looked like so much fun! I love the picture of the kids, they look so happy (and beautiful). I think you look beautiful too, so get some sleep, and stop being so hard on yourself!!
XOXO

Sharon said...

Okay, I don't get it. What's wrong with the top? Or did you just choose not to post those photos, cuz I think you look just gorgeous, especially wearing those big ole' Jackie O's!

Shana said...

Seems as if we are often our toughest critic. You look fine in your new top. And what a bargain!

Aside from you self-consciousness it looks like you had a great day at the zoo. We haven't gone since we had Andrew. We will have to go next spring.

kailani said...

What a great family outing! I'm glad to see you putting them first! That's the way it should be.
