Heck Yes. Wear a Dress.

On the Lamb Derby Party 

For a second I thought I might sit around my house this past weekend and wallow knee deep in self pity and other sorrows.  Sounds like fun, right?  A real riot.  

I thought better of it.  I kicked myself right in the pants and put on the biggest party dress I could find.  

Big party dresses are key to healing any of life’s little hiccups.  You think I’m kidding?  Put on a dress… you’ll feel way better.

Know what else helps with life’s hiccups?  Bourbon.  Or wait…. does that cause the hiccups in the first place?  I’m not sure.  Jury is still out on that one.

Big party dress, check.  Bourbon, check.  Country funk records spinin’ on the turntable, check.  One heck of an afternoon in the sun… success.

Throw in my two best friends Whitney and Rachel.  Holy heckballs…. that was one fine weekend.  

Please note:  this post was just a shameless excuse to show you the fantastic vintage dress I wore this weekend.  If this dress or my unabashed love of bourbon and country funk music offends your sensibilities…. well… that’s a real shame.  You must admit though… it’s a pretty rad dress.  

Tomorrow we discuss pie bars.  It’s important.  Really important.
