So what do you do when your daughter all of the sudden shows interest in high fashion? Pea’s always been concerned with style–mainly her own. There is a lot of pink and purple going on in her dresser, mixed in with all sorts of furry and sparkly pieces. In the past, she didn’t care whether her idea of fashion followed the trends.

All you need is Charmin and tape. The glitter is optional.

Pea even persuaded Pork Chop to join in.
Then they blew my socks off–figuratively speaking. Who wears socks in FL in the summer unless they are working out?
She may end up a winner one day.
Unless Pork Chop decides to enter….then she may be in trouble.
