Thoughts from Thursday

Ouch is all that I can say. Having just safely maneuvered my way home in the pouring rain from getting my first crown, I am soaked to the bone and my mouth hurts! I hope that I don't need too many more crowns, or else I might just opt for false teeth. Okay, maybe I'm exaggerating just a bit, but my mouth really does hurt, and the rain doesn't help.

Before I take a nap to let the numbness wear off, I wanted to remind all of you that the US Women will be playing the Aussies Saturday morning for the gold medal in basketball! I believe that the game will be on television at 9:00 AM CST, but check local listings to be sure. You can bet that I will be hooping and hollering (as much as my mouth will allow)!

Second, I am searching for soup recipes. So, send 'em my way. I don't care if they are crock pot ones or otherwise. I don't care if they are vegan or loaded with meat. I just want some for fall and winter so that I can make a batch and then freeze some for later. I love good soup and cornbread.

Finally, why is it so hard to find a little black dress for weekend wearing? Oh sure, I can find a ton of them for cocktails and formal events. Any suggestions for one that I can wear to the museum on Thursday evenings when it is free, or to a sports bar with friends to watch the college game we have selected to support, or to simply run errands in? Surely there has to be some out there. I saw two at Wal-Mart, but they looked too cheap. I want something that looks classic but doesn't break the bank at the same time. So, for all you savvy shoppers, spill it and let me know what you know.

I bought a little black dress from Wal-Mart last year. While it is a Jersey knit, I tried it on and LOVED it.

Below is a link to one on Walmart.com that is very similar to the one I have, save for the wrap style. It's the same brand though.
