Happy Birthday, Noah!

Today is a big day in the Russell family--our grandson's first birthday!  It doesn't seem possible that a year has already passed since his birth, but what a glorious, fun year it has been.  We will be going to Lubbock to help him celebrate at his party this Saturday, and that will be a fun time.  It's going to be a cowboy theme.  Now, you need to know that I am not a cowgirl, even though I'm a native Texan, so I simply didn't have a thing in my wardrobe that could be considered western or cowgirl.  I managed to find a shirt and some blinged-up flip-flops and made myself a real Texas cowgirl bling necklace, bracelet and earrings set.  And it did turn out pretty, if I do say so myself.  And it's one of my favorite color combinations--purple and green.  I'm looking forward to wearing it and playing cowgirl for a day.  Who knows?  I may even decide I like it.  Anyway, here is a picture of the whole set.
