A LOT IN MY LIFE!
I always see other people post on their blogs about what they are wearing that day and tend to get a little snarky (I like that word) - Chris says I am not snarky but just plain bitchy but I think snarky doesn't make me sound so mean so I go with it, even though I have a feeling those two words can be used as synonyms!
I am NOT a fashionista (a word I had never heard until I started blogging) by any means and I abhor shopping and my "job" by no means requires fashionable clothing - when I am being snarky about someones "what I wore to work today" post I always envision in my head what my post would look like:
I am sporting a pair of
There are days I don't plan for manure to happen and it does anyway!I don't recall what my particular plans were from this day but I can tell by what I am wearing it was NOT to be covered in manure!
I am sporting a pair of Eddie Bauer jeans, my "good" jeans, that I purchased at the outlet in Edinburgh almost 5 years ago (tells you how often I need "good" jeans! Paired with them I have a simple long sleeve almost burnt orange t-shirt with a turquoise flower tank top I snagged off the
Most days I sport a pair of jeans and a t-shirt - I used to watch "What Not To Wear" and always got aggravated when they would tell stay-at-home Moms not to wear "house cleaning" clothes to town to run errands -do you know how many times a day I would have to change clothes if I didn't go to town in my "house" only clothes - once I begged Chris to call and nominate me for the show - he laughed hysterically and adamantly said "NO" -there was no way in h e double hockey sticks he was going to nominate me for wearing clothes that did not flatter me, even if I told him he could because he knew one day that could be used against him in a court of law!!!!
And speaking of jeans - WHY oh WHY can't they make jeans that cover people's bum??? The other day I saw an infomercial about a "band" of material that they wanted you to buy that you put over the top of your jeans so that when you bent down it would cover what the jeans didn't - WHY NOT JUST MAKE JEANS THAT JUST FIT!!!!!
But anyway back to my original reason for this post - the other day we got an invitation to a lunch at the Indiana State Fair for the Certified Livestock Producers Program -
as I walk down the stairs to leave with Chris he says "You look nice" and it occurs to me that I actually got to "dress up" and should blog "What I am wearing" maybe that will curb my
So off we went to The Indiana State Fair - Chris and I got there early enough to look around The Pioneer Village, check out Cole's electric project that earned state fair entry and then head to the Indiana Certified Livestock Producers Program luncheon! We mingled, small talked and then got in line for the buffet - and that is when it happened - the gentleman behind me says
"This is the best luncheon I have been to where everyone has manure on their boots!"and it hit me:
