Here I am. Joining the party for STRIPEMANIA!!

Wonder what it is about?

Holly Becker and Igor Yosif came up with a fun idea.

You can read about the details on Holly’s blog, decor8.

STRIPEMANIA – a photo of yourself wearing stripes…and then submit – purely for fun, joining other bloggers doing the same !!

Today is deadline date. That’s typically me….doing it last minute.

Real reason I waited so long  – I saw it before..didn’t quite know what it was about.

Saw it again last night on my twitter account, tweeted by Holly as a reminder.

Thought it would be fun…. but could not recall having a stripe shirt in my closet and the deadline is today!

Went to bed and what JUMPED out at me in my closet….STRIPES !!!!! Everywhere !!!!

Funny how when somebody points something out…suddenly that is ALL you see????

I guess that was part of their idea.

I had a few options on my side of the closet…


Hubby’s side of the closet. Oh dearie me….. at least another 24 more shirts to choose from for ONE photo??!!!

Where WAS I when the laundry in this house has been done thinking we don’t have stripe shirts??!!

Not to mention all the t-shirts and other items I noticed after that.

This morning, I got up and could not ignore all the stripe shirts !!

So, I decided to join the party….

It reminded me of going to a pajama party as a teenager !!

We got ALL STRIPEY !!! And when my 4 year old heard of the IDEA – there was NO way NOT joining in…

Have you EVER tried to contain the excitement of a 4 year-old??!!…

And she already had stripes on ?!! She went to grab a few more stripey items…and was I not surprised to see a little stripe monster jump at me when I changed her clothes !!

Oh, how I love her excitement in everything we do!

It was FUN. And that was all it needed to be.

Thanks to Holly and Igor.

Have a happy, stripey Sunday everyone !!
