Robyn, Crystal Bridges and my Darling "Plastic Python" Boots

100 0990

Today is my oldest sister's birthday.  I won't tell you how old Robyn is, but suffice to say you would think me a liar if I did and then you later met her.  She looks ten years younger than her chronological age and is a true classic beauty. 

To celebrate, we (my sister, my Father, my youngest daughter and I) went to the Crystal Bridges Museum in Bentonville, Arkansas.  If you have not heard of this world class museum of American art, founded by Alice Walton (the daughter of Sam Walton, founder of Walmart), then you have surely not picked up a newspaper or turned on your television set in the past year. To quote an article in the Washington Post,  it is the "most-talked-about new museum in the United States in a generation".  To quote me, "It is absolutely fabulousl!"  After viewing an exhibit that will be leaving the museum shortly, we headed downtown to have dinner at Table Mesa Bistro. It was a beautiful night and we were able to get a table outside to eat.  The food was just delicious, as was the company I got to keep.  

True to form, I wore a pair of boots.  To be more specific, I wore what I call my "Plastic Python" boots.  They are not plastic, nor are they real python....they are leather, but the leather has been crafted and painted to look and feel  like python scales.  The toes have a very exaggerated point and they do draw stares whenever I wear them.  While waiting for our table at dinner, a beautiful young woman complimented me on my boots.  That opened up a conversation about my new business and, of course, I gave her a card.  Turns out, her name is Stacy and she works at Charming Charlie, a fun fashion accessory boutique where I almost overdosed one afternoon on cool jewelry.   My sister insisted I pull a copy of a newspaper article written this week about Old Sole Boots out of my purse and show it to her.  Oh, no, gotta love her!!!  We all got a laugh out of that one!   Don't I love my family!!!

Let's add this classic beauty sister, an absolutely fabulous museum, a delicious meal with my priceless family, my "plastic python" boots and a new friend....yep, I'd say I'm a pretty lucky girl!
