Steppin' Out Mama

On Thursday, I went out.  On a school night.  To a fashion show.  Wearing heels and 
lipstick.  With no kids!  It was a bizarre feeling for me to finish up homework, put supper 
on the table, get my girls in their jammies, all while curling my hair and picking out 
jewelry.  My company generously gave me a ticket to their fancy table for Pink October, 
a local event devoted to breast cancer awareness and the importance of early detection.  
The entire night was truly inspirational and I felt so blessed to be in the presence of so 
many courageous women.  The highlight of the evening was when one of my neighbors, 
a beautiful women currently fighting through her own personal battle with breast 
cancer, strutted her stuff in the fashion show, got to the end of the runway, tore off her 
wig, and shouted a big "WOOHOO!!!".  Her confidence and amazing spirit brought tears 
to my eyes, the entire crowd going wild as she smiled and danced her way across the stage.
Many blessings to those fighting this disease, prayers of comfort to the families affected, 
and thoughts to those who are now at rest.

I had such a nice time and made it home just in time to share a bowl of ice cream with 
Shawn and David Letterman, heels and lipstick excluded.

Blouse: Clothing Showroom via Zuilily//Jeans: The Flirt Skinny via Old Navy//
Boots: Spancy Ketosherosh
These jeans are my new favorite thing.  They are skinny jeans that actually fit me
despite the fact that I have hips and thighs and a butt.  Skinny jeans for curvy girls:
Oh, Old Navy, you are so clever!

You are so pretty! I'm on a mission to copy you and get those same jeans. My curves have intimidated me in this 'skinny jean' era we are living in but these look great on you fellow curvy sister! That is so awesome you were able to attend such an important event!
