Hi Ya'll! My name is Robelyn and I've rolled my duct tape over from red.neck Chic... I'm so honored that Kori invited me over - Thank You Kori!!!
I "met" Kori via blogging about a year ago...
Instant adoration on my part.
A. Kori is so fun and has INCREDIBLE style (seriously - I come over here to drool over whatever she's taunting me with... then I go back to my closet and just hang my head in absolute disgust.)
B. She's a High School English Teacher! I like that about her.
In high school I had the GREATEST English teacher. Ms. Scott. I remember looking down the elementary halls and seeing Ms. Scott standing in the high school halls and thinking, "I can't wait for her to
Ms. Scott ALWAYS wore a dress. Not just ANY dress... but a shirt dress. And each one had a full, floaty, graceful skirt. In the summer she would wear sandals with her dress and in the winter she would wear pumps with a modest heel and add in a cardigan. Her hair was blonde and never a strand out of place - her make-up understated but flattering, and she always wore small post earrings that matched her dress choice for the day... SO much a lady!
If you ever meet me in person remind me to show you how Ms. Scott walked... I have it down to a Science! Oh wait... did I just switch subjects? hmmmm....
It wouldn't have been good AT ALL for me to try and be like Ms. Scott while in Jr. High and High School (I had a reputation to protect you know - couldn't go 'round tradin' in my Keds and Guess jeans for Ms. Scott inspired dresses), sew I stayed busy trying to be like Molly Ringwald (do you remember Pretty in Pink? Augh! She made the sewing machine COOL!). But... the older I get the more I remember Ms. Scott's style and incredible "ladylike" mannerisms. I didn't say I was duplicating all of that (I'm a red.neck after all!), I just remember them. :o)
I'm fairly certain she was a good teacher as well as wearing pretty dresses. I used to have to turn in a "journal" with one page filled each week. That poor lady... she had to read stuff like: "Monday. Ms. Scott! Ms. Scott!!! JimBobEarl LOOKED at me, can you believe that?! I about walked in to my locker! Think he likes me?! Oh, he's so CUUUUUTE - the cutest boy in school!" and then things like: "Wednesday: MS. SCOTT! I stole my Mother's car and went driving through a garden! Want some tomatoes?"
