The Year of the Little Black Dress

I am not that big on New Year's resolutions per say.....but in years past I have been known to start massive stitchery\sewing projects in the week between Christmas and New Year's that I have completed during that coming year.  I need to do that with my Dear Jane Quilt.  I have over half of the top completed.....but there is a lot of work left to do on it.  Since we are coming up on all these 150 anniversary celebrations for the Civil War and the many battles in the coming couple years....I would really like to complete this quilt during these years and be able to commemorate this really dramatic time in American history.  So I am seriously thinking this should be my main project for the year.  But I digress'll hear more about this later I am sure.

A certain sweet Santa's helper left me a small note in my stocking to take a trip to Coldwater Creek. So we traveled to the closest location which is over an hour away....... so don't get there often...this is my go-to store at the moment.  Back to roaming and looking for a pair of black jeans, narrow leg, and most importantly Lycra...... my bestest friend.  The Silver Fox is walking around with me looking for thee pair of black jeans as I stop at various racks.....sidetracked again.   I run across this darling little black dress. 
I touch it.

I pet it.

I swoon.

I didn't try it on, but I wanted to.....I already have a little black dress......did I mention they had it in red too....I love a good red.

I mention to the Silver Fox....I think we should make this the year of the little black dress.  I can't think of the last time we have been somewhere...... where I would wear my little black dress.  So the conversation went something like this...... "we need to change our lives this year, really, so we actually go to places where I could wear my LBD and you (Silver Fox) could be all duded up in your suit."  

He looks very hot in his black suit BTW.....I am pretty sure he nodded back at that is going to be our New Year's Resolution for 2011.
