Rather, I am the fan that likes going to the games, and participating in all the delightful activities that one can only experience watching baseball in a stadium. Like wearing ugly oversized polyester jerseys and eating hot dogs and drinking beer outdoors at 3 pm and singing the national anthem with 20,00 other people at the top of your lungs and heckling those stupid, obviously blind umpires about their ridiculously bad calls, um HELLO FIRST BASE UMPIRE, ARE YOU FREAKIN' BLIND OR SOMETHING 'CAUSE MY SEVEN YEAR-OLD COULD MAKE BETTER CALLS. I can even tolerate the occasional game on TV but only if the Texas Rangers or Yankees are playing. Actually, baseball is basically the only sport I can watch on the TV, unlike my husband, who prefers to turn on golf and transform our home into some time of energy-sucking vortex. Is there anything more boring than watching golf on TV? I think not.
Our local team is the Frisco Roughriders (Roughriders as in cowboys...get your mind out of the gutter) and their stadium is much smaller than those of major league ball teams, which is kind of nice - it puts you front and center with all the action.
While I'm reminiscing over fond memories of cheering on the Roughriders and dreaming of public daydrinking, here's what went down on Dress With Courage this week:
- Wrote a recap of a day spent at Beauty Live Dallas as a guest of The Body Shop;
- Described my struggle with anorexia, competition, and the quest for blogger win;
- Wondered if wearing designer labels makes you rich and powerful;
- Listed my favorite thrifting and vintage blogs for my Thrifting 101 series;
- Talked about my favorite spring trends for Fashion Beauty Friend Friday, and
- Delved into my experience as a redhead (with some hair care tips specifically for redheads.)
I'd also like to take a moment and welcome all my new followers (wave!) Thank you for your continued support and thoughtful comments. I really love reading what you share (even though I don't always respond...bad me.) I have no doubt that I have some the most intelligent readers out there!
And as a little celebration for reaching 150 followers this week, I'm having a giveaway to one of my favorite vintage stores this week! This shop is a favorite of Jane Aldridge of Sea of Shoes, and is filled with pristine vintage from Christian Dior, Betsey Johnson, Prada, and Halston. Be sure to stop by and enter - its going to be fabulous.
