A little walk down memory lane today.
In 2008 I entered a national dress contest on Kaboodle & hosted by Marie Claire Magazine. The prize was a trip to NYC & $1,000 shopping mula. I put my dress on & had my son my picture. He was 9 then & he is the same child who takes my photos today.
Out of 948 entries, I made the semifinal list. I was really surprised, to say the least! People were making remarks about how old I was compared to the other girls so I really didn’t think I had a chance. But, I won! It was crazy. I was living in the sticks with dial-up internet so when the page finally loaded & I saw my picture I was seriously amazed. And happy!
NYC was fun & kind of sensory overloading. It was a great experience.
My camera was horrible back then so the pictures are not great.
I decided on a pair of D&G heels (which I wore yesterday on the blog). It was the most money I have ever spent on anything & really hard to do. But, I’m glad I did.
My biggest regret is not taking my son as my guest. I really should have. Someday I will though, I promise
