Christmas Island



I promise, I am wearing a tacky Christmas shirt underneath this sweater. I'm just making you wait for it. Isn't this sweater gorgeous. The colors are amazing. It's like a sunset. And belive it or not, it came from Walmart for $10 last year! I almost forgot I had it! The pants are JCPenney's St. John's Bay cords. I LOVE their cords. They are long enough and they just wear really well.

So, are you ready? Here it is:

I think this one came from Goody's, too.

Lise cut my hair last night. Ain't it purdy? LOL

Christmas Island by Jimmy Buffett

Let's get away from sleigh bells
Let's get away from snow
Let's make or break some Christmas ? dear
I know the place to go
How'd you like to spend Christmas on Christmas Island?
How'd you like to spend the holiday away across the sea?
How'd you like to spend Christmas on Christmas Island?
How'd you like to hang a stocking on a great big coconut tree?

How'd you like to stay up late like the islanders do?
Wait for Santa to sail in with your presents in a canoe
If you ever spend Christmas on Christmas Island
You will never stray for everyday your Christmas dreams come true

Pretty much says it all for me today! Happy Friday and have a great weekend!!

  3. I love the cardigan! Those are definitely my colors. Your Christmas tops are so funny! Very unique! Goody's closed here about a year and a half ago. In our little town, it's Belk, Burkes or Walmart. If you want anything else you have to travel at least 30 miles! :( ~Serene

  9. Hi there!
    Could you please let "dressing mommy" know I'd love for her to be included in pearls day!
    I couldn't get her blog to come up for some reason? I posted the time and info for the 'pearl party' and if there are any questions or suggestions I'd sure appreciate it ( i've never done anything like this before, yikes ;)
    I think it will be fun :)
