Ladies Day Out

Early this morning Geri, Sandy, Kathy and I left North Ranch heading for the outlet mall at Anthem just north of Phoenix.  It was a great day of talking, shopping and lunch!  I hit the mother lode—I found jeans which actually fit—amazing!!!  I was so excited I think the sales person thought I had lost my mind—I could just see her thinking, “who gets that excited over jeans???”  Well—someone who intensely dislikes today’s low rise jeans—I want jeans which reach my waist or almost to my waist and they are hard to find!  The selection of jeans in stores gives me an instant headache—super skinny/not so skinny/straight/low rise/super low rise(not going there)/boot cut—and the list goes on and on. 

I found a helpful sales person who pointed me in the right direction and I purchased three pair of Levi 314 jeans—almost to my waist, fitted in the thighs and straight legs—not skinny!  I was almost giddy to find jeans which fit—the cowboy approved when I modeled the jeans for him!

And in the Columbia store I found the cowboy a vest he actually liked—very much—he hasn’t removed it since I came home!

Another rainy/cool day yesterday and very cool/partly sunny today.  Michael did a little carpenter work Monday, installing the floor trim in the kitchen/dining area.  After taking apart the little art quilt on Sunday I managed to get the main blocks and sashing re-done—much, much better!

  1. Hair cuts and jeans - getting good ones is just the best! Thanks for including the style number :-)) The kidlets are so adorable.

  2. I will have to check out 314 jeans! It use to be so simple to buy jeans. Not any more. Excited that you found some jeans that worked:)

    Brooks and Lora are just so dear:)

  3. Hi! Have you ever worn Mens jeans? I've been wearing Mens Wrangler 947STR for over 40 years!
    Buy the length you need and this style number is a "boot cut" favorite!
    I live in Scottsdale and buy them at Sabas Western store.
