But every once in a while, something non-horsey happens in my life that’s worth mentioning!
1. Over the past year, I have reconnected with an old college friend. We’ve never lost touch, but we talk to each other on a daily basis now, and I’ve realized how much I’ve missed her! In fact, I miss most of my high school and college friends! It’s hard to find friends in your 30’s when you have a solitary job at-home. Oh, and chillens’. That’s children in redneck, in case you didn’t know. I mean, there are plenty of other couples and families out there to hang with, but for some reason I just don’t click with anyone. Am I the only one? Maybe that’s why I enjoy my equine blogging community so much. The point of this first “thing,” is that when Rachel and I were in college we really wanted to see Justin Timberlake in concert. Sadly, the stars never aligned for that to happen. 🙁 But things have changed! And, I’m happy to announce that as of last Wednesday, we are the proud owners of two Justin Timberlake concert tickets! 🙂 That’s right, on May 5th we’ll be bringin’ sexy back just like it was 2005! Holla!
2. Don’t get too excited, though. Here’s the dilemma. Because I live a generally isolated life, besides going to the grocery store, church, and catching an occasional movie with my DAD, I am way behind on what’s acceptable for concert attire. In fact, I’m starting to feel like I’m behind on clothes trends in general. Lately, I’ve noticed that I’m usually the only gal in the room wearing boot cut jeans instead of skinny jeans. I’ve also noticed that people wear things other than t-shirts. Who’d have thought?! So, the second after Rach and I celebrated our ridiculously expensive JT tickets over the phone, I had a moment of panic when I realized that not only do I have NOTHING to wear, I don’t even know where to start! I’m familiar with this anxious feeling pertaining to clothes that don’t include boots and jeans. We’re good friends. We go WAY back. Panic sets in every time my husband and I accept an invitation to a wedding. I say weddings, because they’re usually the only “dressy” events I attend. Rachel’s wedding was no exception. I remember texting her the day before her wedding, and and asking her if I could just wear jeans, because I had NOTHING. I will always and forever remember her words, “Just put on a sparkly top, Allie! Every girl needs something sparkly in their wardrobe.” They do? This was news to me! I quickly looked in my closet. ZERO SPARKLY. No heels. No dress. NADA. I ended up borrowing a several pieces from a friend and my mom. Guys. I was the ONLY female at her wedding wearing pants. The last wedding I attended was in November. After sending back the RSVP card, I immediately called Rachel and said, “SEND ME DRESSES. STAT.” So, she did. KNowing what a complete mess I am, she also sent accessories in labelled baggies. So, I did what I was told and that’s what I wore. See picture below.
Oh, and I had to borrow the heels from my mom.
I realize this post is getting long, but hang with me. In an effort to plan ahead, I’ve started googling “spring concert outfits.” Based on my search results, I think I’m more panicked than I was before.
I’m sure I could rustle-up some holey jeans, but if someone could point me to where I might find some high-waisted fishnet stockings, I’d really appreciate it.
Or, I could wear an oversized white t-shirt. I have t-shirts! I’m not sure how my cellulite will look bulging over thigh-high boots, though. I’ll need to make a nail appointment to get some extra long, electric blue dragon-lady nails. Got it.
If you can’t tell by now, this is my plea for HALP.
What would you wear? And more importantly, what should a 32 year old mom who shovels poo for a living, wear to a Justin Timberlake concert wear?
