For a few years, my mother and I would go shopping for new Easter clothes near Easter. Last year we didn’t. I had still had my Easter dresses from other Easters. I tried on an old one and it was too tight.
I looked around the Internet for a new dress. I found one on Kohls.com. I had found two unused Kohls gift cards. But I used one on some tights. The other one had seventeen dollars on it. It would be enough to get the dress. But then two pairs of jeans didn’t fit either so I used that gift card for a new pair of jeans.
I decided to go ahead and get the dress on Black Friday. On the site, it says the dress would run big so I got a petite small. I was afraid it wouldn’t fit good, but it does fit really well. I can’t wait to wear it on Easter.
The dress is an orange and black animal print. Here is the dress.
Happy Black Friday!!
I had posted earlier that one of my cousins had cancer. He died a few days ago. His funeral is tomorrow.
Yesterday I went to my great-aunt’s house. Her house, as usual, was beautifully decorated. (I don’t decorate until today and I did this morning.)
I did order the calendars And my best friend’s calendar might be here tomorrow. Early this morning I got Chris’ hoodie, and some other stuff.
Happy Friday 13th!!
I do have a black cat named Lilly. I had posted her brother’s (Sneezy) picture a long time ago. We think someone took Sneezy. Anyway, I was looking at the picture a few days ago and I thought it was time to take a picture of her because she has grown.
Here she is:
In that picture, you can see my new shoes that I bought. I ended up using all my gift cards that I was supposed to be saving up for Christmas to get the shoes. But I did need them. I have been wanting to get rid of some New Balance shoes that were looking old and has a hole in the heel of them.
The new shoes are Adidas Altarun K. They are grey and pink. They are very comfortable and they fit my feet.
Also, I had ordered many months ago some pants to replace my stirrup pants. I bought some jogging pants by ToBeInStyle. I bought a red pair and a blue pair. They fit, although I might have needed a Medium instead. I love them though.
You can get the shoes here. You can get the pants here.
I’m a little sad because I gave away some shorts and two stirrup pants. The pants I have had since sixth grade. Yes, they still fit. But it’s time to give them up. I ordered two new pants from Amazon to replace them. The thing though is that I had to use three of my other gift cards to get the pants.
I’m still reading The Handmaid’s Tale. I got antsy and I went ahead watched the movie and the first episode of the show. I’ll post about them on Tuesday. I hopefully finish the book either tomorrow or Sunday. The last two Left Behind books came available, but I’m going to read Dante’s Divine Comedy next.
I had been watching Still Star Crossed on ABC. It’s a pretty good show. It’s about what happens after Romeo and Juliet die. I have been trying to find some more shows to watch. I had been watching Salem on Netflix, but it’s getting not so good. I’m still watching 13 Reasons Why too. But I can only watch them once a week. My mother and I started watching The Preacher. It’s getting pretty good. I decided to try out This is Us. It’s so good. My mother loves it too. We binged a few episodes.
My mother also taped Midnight Texas. It’s pretty good.
As I said earlier, I had to give away my white sandal dress shoes and my payless white flat shoes.
Since I was wanting to get that pink dress for my Las Vegas trip, I decided to get some pink booties. I wanted to shoes that wouldn’t twist my ankle and I could walk fast in them.
When I got them, I did try them on right away to make sure they would be perfect for the trip. They fit and they feel great on.
As it turned out, I ended up wearing them twice on my trip. I hurt the back of my heel when we were rushing to get on the second flight going to Las Vegas. In case we had to rush to get to the flight going back home, I wore the booties. The booties did come untied a few times, but they didn’t hurt my feet.
They have a women’s and girl’s size in this bootie. Here is the bootie I got:
Many years ago I had green, blue, white, black, and red tights. I lost my red tights in moving several times.
I have a Christmas Eve outfit of a red velvet shirt with a black velvet skirt that has roses on it. I usually wear my black tights with it, but this year I couldn’t. I was going to wear my black ones on my trip to Las Vegas. (Only I didn’t get to wear those black tights)
So I decided to wear my green tights to my great-aunt’s house on Christmas Eve. I found out when I put them on they had a huge hole at the top and a small hole on my toe.
After Christmas Eve, I decided to get some new green tights. I got a ten dollar Amazon gift card from my cousin at Christmas so I use it toward the tights. At first, I couldn’t decide which one to get.
I ended up getting Hue tights in shadow olive. I liked the color. When I got them, though, they were darker than I expected.I like them anyway. They fit too. I hope to get wear them for St. Patrick’s Day.
You can get the tights at Amazon.com.
Even since I was nine, I loved the movie Dirty Dancing. I used to get perms. And one year my step-father’s mother (I called Nana) made me a “Baby dress.” The dress she wore at the end. I picked out the fabric. It was a soft, pink fabric. I loved the fabric so much I asked her to make me little curtains for a doll house I owned.
The dress isn’t exact, but I still loved it. Flash forward to this year, I wanted to try on the dress to see if I could still wear it. I wanted to maybe take it on my secret trip. But sadly it was too tight. So I looked everywhere for a dress I would wear on the secret trip. I found a dress I loved on Amazon. After I found that dress I saw on Walmart.com that they had a similar dress to my “Baby dress,” but it wasn’t my size.
I ended up buying the Amazon dress and booties with my Amazon gift cards that I saved up. Here’s a picture of me wearing the dress.
I love the feel of the fabric of this new dress.
You can find this dress at Amazon.com. You can find the similar “Baby dress” at Walmart.com.

Many years ago I had some pretty patent shoes with little heels. I loved those shoes. A few years ago my mother got into one of cleaning moods and kept fussing about the shoes. They were scuffed up, but I didn’t care. I could call them black and white shoes. She refused and made me throw them away.
A few months later I made her take me shopping for some more white shoes since she threw those away. We could hardly find any white shoes in the store. I found some at last. They were little white sandal dress shoes made by Nina.
But one year when I wore them at Easter, my feet froze. So I looked up some shoes at payless. They had some cute ones, but they were only online. We went to the store anyway. Their shoe sizes aren’t normal. I found some cute white ones, but they are too wide. But I got them anyway. I did wear them to church a few times.
Flash forward to the present, I am hoping to take a trip soon with Chris. I thought about making a strap for those payless shoes. Chris is way taller than me and I usually can’t keep up with him. But when I tried them on a few days ago, my big toe is hitting the end on them. So I have decided to give them away.
You can find similar shoes at Amazon.com, and Ebay.com.

I’m jumping for joy today because Microsoft Edge is working fine now. I guess it wanted a day off. lol
Many years ago I had some black lace up pointed toe boots. I loved those boots. I called them my witch shoes. My mother called them granny shoes. They got so worn that I had to throw them away about two years ago.
Then that same year on Black Friday I found some similar boots at JCPenney. They aren’t a pointed toe, though. They are a rounded toe style of boot.The ones I had you had to tie the laces. These rounded toe ones have a side zipper which is nicer.
You can find these boots at Amazon.com and ebay.com.

Many years ago I got a dark grey skirt. It had a silver buckle design. It zipped up in the back. I loved that skirt. I usually wore it around my birthday to look more “grown up” or nowadays I say to look more my age. Most people can’t believe I am 36 years old.
Anyway last year I decided to give the skirt away. It was getting too short. Last Easter while I shopping at Kohls, I found a grey skirt that will be a replacement. It really makes me look elegant. It is made by Elle. It’s a pull on style. It’s spaced dyed and a lighter grey than my other skirt.
You can find the skirt at Kohls, or at Ebay.com.
