1. When it is humid, does your hair go flat or frizz up?

2. Coke or Pepsi?

3. What color shoes would you wear with a little black dress to a wedding? (I have an idea of what I am going to wear but looking for more suggestions)

Apropos of nothing, but yesterday DH and I were hiking and there was this little girl around four and her grandma at the base of the trail. They had obviously decided to sit out the walk while the rest of the family hiked up to see the thermal features at the top of the hill. The little girl was kind of singing to herself and skipping around and she almost ran into me so I struck up a conversation with her and held up her feet to show me her shoes and said, "You seem to be in a happy mood today!" She responded, "OF COURSE I am in a happy mood! I have on yellow flip-flops!"

Are you actually posting while on vacation? lol

"When I was growing up, it was considered bad taste to wear black to a wedding as black is the color of mourning, and you weren't supposed to wear white because that is the bride's color. I know that us considered an old-fashioned rule nowadays, but I can't bring myself to break it." ------- Ditto.

I have a bit of a shoe obsession. Although I tend to stay away from ankle straps b/c I am long waisted so I don't need anything making my legs look shorter. But if I recall, you are five six-ish, so you'll be fine.

On Wednesdays we wear pink.

"I'm wearing a mint dress w/silver strappy sandals." --------- That sounds very nice and at the same time understated. It isn't nice when you see wedding guests, who seem like they are trying to upstage the bride.

I love the polka dot shoes, but they would need a navy dress - no good with a black dress.

"Although I tend to stay away from ankle straps" ---------- I stay away from them period, because my grandpa, dad and DH all hold the opinion that ankle straps look cheap. If it was just one of them, I might dismiss it, but it is unanimous.

We are driving home from vacation and in the badlands of eastern Wyoming where there is nothing but sky and cows and road and we can't even get a decent consistent radio signal, so I am keeping DH amused with the conversation here, among other things. There were a few antelope a while back, but we seem to be out of antelope country.

Yeah I LOVE shoes too and wear all different types. Looking this time for a higher (even stiletto) heel as it just finishes off the outfit.

My all time favorite line from a Mother of the Groom was, "I'm just going to shut up and wear beige. That's what every good MOG should do."

On Wednesdays we wear pink.
