Shootin' Pool

My little brother and I decided to hit the town a few Saturdays ago. I got to say, the night was a bit of a flop. The first place we went to had absolutely no parking. We then decided to try, unsuccessfully at that, to find a bar he had been to one other time. Since that ended up not happening, we went to a bar called The Right Spot. The right spot it certainly was not, we had a drink, played a couple of games of pool and ended up leaving. Oh and by the way, I completely suck at pool and had my ass handed to me...just saying. From there we went to Cheers (my brother's first time there), which was super lame as well...but then again Cheers always has been. It's a sports bar and tends to get a very poser type of crowd. We got one drink, chugged it, and left. Last place of the night was Culpepper's. This was a bit better. A live band that was alright and shockingly they weren't charging a cover charge. While there, I seen a 60 year old woman grind and thrust on a square support beam, which I watched halfway between revulsion and amusement. Yeah, definitely one of THOSE nights. 

Since we were going out I decided to go full out on the makeup and wear a corset/bustier top I've had for a few years. Although you can barely see the shoes, I wore the ones featured in this post.  I'm so loving the faux leather jacket from Lane Bryant. I've seriously been wearing it nonstop. I definitely would say it's worth the hundred bucks. 

Shirt and Jeans: Torrid. Jacket: Lane Bryant. Boots Kmart. Necklace: Fuego. Earrings: Guess.

Down on the Farm

Every year in October, my daughter and I go to Schilter Family Farm for harvest sort of activities. They have hay rides, a cow/horse train pulled by a tractor, pony rides, petting zoo, a corn maze and hay maze, an area they call hay jump (self explanatory), and a bazooka/cannon thing that you can shoot pumpkins and corn out of. It's a real working farm, so you can also buy certain produce such as pumpkins, corn, and apples. It's always a good time. The corn maze changes themes every year. This year was the Wizard of Oz and as you made your way through, they would have various scenes and characters set up from the movie. It was pretty cute. Anyways, being that we were going to a farm and going to be walking a lot out in the country, I wanted to remain as comfortable and practical as possible while still looking cute. I think this outfit would of looked far better if I had a pair of riding boots, but I have yet to go get some (even though I had the intention of going back to Kmart and buying the chocolate brown pair, which is probably going to be sold out now).

I had to include this picture of my babes just because I love it so much.
