First of all, HAPPY HALLOWEEN! Don't eat all the candy before the neighborhood kids ring the bell. Have so much fun and be safe!
Yesterday it rained off and on all day. So, what does a girl do when it rains? She puts on rain boots of course. I have had these yellow rubber lovelies for several months, but I don't get to wear them near as much as I'd like because here in Texas, water doesn't fall from the sky very often. Luckily the skies cleared about the time it was time to take pics. Instead of sloshing around in the puddles, I found a man-made one to take pictures by. It's all the same, right?

As we were going about our normal blog picture taking business, this thing decided to interfere and would not leave us alone. I call it a "thing" because it seemed as though a mad scientist had let his experiment loose in the park. It looked like a cross between a chicken, turkey, duck and goose and there was no doubt that it wanted us off it's turf.
At first it was funny, but then it got ugly as in it was chasing Ross around in circles...okay, I know, that's still comical. If only you could have witnessed it in real time. Ross couldn't focus on focusing the camera and I could focus on being still. He threw his hands in the air and said, "I give up. This thing won't leave me alone." So, the good wife that I am, took the photography duties into my own hands and captured this business. FYI, it looks like Ross dropped kicked this "thing", but I promise nobody or nothing got hurt...too terribly. Kidding. Just kidding.
Gotta love the moments that create blogging material. I seriously need more of them in my life.
All joking aside, I do have something with actual substance to tell you about. You see that amazing state arm stack in the photo above? Ashley with The Shine Project sent it over to me. If you don't know Ashley, you might possibly be living under a rock. She is the founder and creator of a beautiful cause driven business. Her newest project is called Threads.
You guys, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE read this part!!
Threads employs at risk high school students that want to break the cycle they have come to know. They make the bracelets you see me wearing today, are paid fair wages and in turns helps them pay for college. These kids have dreams, futures and are dedicated to changing their lives. Every Threads purchase will directly impact these students. Our belief and support of them is a symbol of hope and trust. When you wear a piece from Threads, you are not just wearing a bracelet, you are wearing a change.
The holidays are around the corner and this is the perfect time to start shopping for the ladies in your life and that includes yourself. Take a look at all the one of a kind pieces that Threads has to offer and make a positive impact in someone's life.
