Let's go huntin'

Yes, it's a purse. It's my Huntin' Purse. At least, that's what Mr. Diva calls it. It's authentic RealTree Hardwoods. Hell yeah.

A friend of my mom's made her a purse awhile back - a cute little chambray thing with pretty foo-foo fringe. Tater and I both had commented on the purse so one night Mom took us to Wal*Mart and let us pick out fabric for purses of our own. Tater picked out floral and stripes. Very cute, very stylish, very Tater. I couldn't find anything I liked and trust me, we looked for a long time. I just happened to walk by the row that held all things camouflage and it hit me - a camo purse! So I picked up the bolt of fabric and took it to Mom's cart, dropped it in and said, "Let's go pick out some fringe to match." Mom and Tater both stood there, mouths hanging open, speechless.

Mom's friend finished the purses last week. She told Mom, "I sat down and put Tater's together and it turned out so cute. Kristin's, however.... I had to get drunk before I could even start."

Cazzie!!, I've always been one for off the beaten path. In 9th grade, our first year of Home Ec, we all had to make an article of clothing. Most of us made "jams", aka Bermuda shorts with loud, obnoxious patterned material. I forwent loud and obnoxious - I made camo ones.

Cedric, and what if I am? Does that turn you on?

RJ, yeah, so far I've seen no one else with one and chances are, I won't! I love being different! Although, Abby has hinted that she'd like to have one, too. That's my girl - 9 years old and already a redneck fashionista.
