MY OUTFIT DETAILS
- Well I guess you have been wondering where I have been? It was not intentional that I didn’t get a post out this week. I was depending on my assistant to upload a couple of videos for you but he dropped the ball on me. From now own I am not going to depend on someone else. That means I have to learn some new technology. Not a bad thing, I just wasn’t prepared this week. I APPOLIGIZE!!
- I just got back from Austin for a whirlwind 3 days attending the Texas Medal of Arts Awards & events sponsored by the www.txculturaltrust.org. What an amazing time meeting new friends and rubbing elbows with the likes of Larry Gatlin & the Gatlin brothers, Kenny Rodger and my favorite Kris Kristofferson. You can see a couple of photos on my Instagram.
- Coming up is a lot of spring fashion as well as Rodeo Season starts here in Houston soon. My family has 4 birthdays the first week of March, including my own. I will be doing a special post on my birthday, March the 8th. That day also happens to be International Women’s Day celebrated around the world. This years theme is #BeBoldForChange. Stay tuned because I am not only #thefierce50, I am a #fierce woman and proud of it!!! You will be enlightened that I am still fairly conservative and not a fanatical feminist, but I do believe strongly in women’s rights. Yes, I want my cake and eat it too!!!
