The Dress

Several months ago, I awarded a girl named Courtney - whom I had never met - a blogger award. Happened upon her blog from another and was immediately struck by her candid writing and hilarious nature. We became friends and have kept in touch daily; more than a lot of my closest friends here in town!

There is an on-going joke between the two of us that you just never know who is behind that computer, that blog, that email...but luckily I have first hand witness to her being real - and a woman - and indeed a mom of her crazy kids she writes so eloquently about. My close friend from LSU knows her, oddly enough, and they live in adjacent towns. I had no idea...but randomly asked her because I felt that they should be friends if they were not already. The moral of the story? It is INDEED a small world we live in here on earth.

We plan to meet up while I visit Dallas in a couple of weeks and I am super excited about that. And, the reason I'm posting.....check out the cutest dress ever she just sent me for Lainey. Love it!

Her daughter, Tessie Mayes, has a similar one and it can be seen on the main pics of her blog....her kids are the ones from a few posts back that take great pictures together. Unlike mine.

OK, the dress.

The lining!

And, it must be noted that the design of these dresses all originated from Lainey's birthday dress and Halloween dress given to her by Mae Mae (Terri). Hers were purchased on-line at (one of my favorites) and Courtney took the idea and made it her own. Precious.

Air Jordan 5 All Black, We Wore Sunbonnets And Dresses To Pick CottonWhen I picked cotton I remember going into the field to work wearing the sunbonnet my Mother made for me. This kept the hot sun off the back of my neck, and also had a broad brim to keep the sun off my face. I'm sure you have watched episodes of "Little House On the Prairie", and seen the girls dressed just like I used to dress.
