The Tiny Heart: Strike

11.19.2012

Strike




Sweater-Gap Outlet, Plaid Shirt-A&F, Necklace-Daisy Gem {giveaway win}, Jeans-A&F, Belt-H&M, Boots-Target

We decided not to go to the private party in Atlantic City on Saturday night. Instead we ditched it for... bowling!

I discovered my hubby is secretly amazing at bowling. He kept getting strike after strike and when he didn't, he kept getting spares. He joked that he's been sneaking out while I'm sleeping and been bowling all night long.

I, on the other hand, suck at bowling. Every time I bowled, the ball would go straight and right before the pins, it would veer off to the right. I got too many gutter balls to even count. But, we had a really fun night. I doubt I would've had as much fun at the party. This probably means I'm totally lame, but I'm okay with that.

  45. It sounds like you guys made the best of the weekend even if you did skip the private party. I think this is a classic fall in New England ensemble and you wear it well.

  46. Sharon, i really really like this outfit. It's so you and it's very cute. I think there's an answer for the bowling balls not ending up in the gutter, my son used "gate" is that what they call it?Just kidding. Happy thanksgiving.

  47. Girl, I love to bowl...not that great at it, but it's so fun!! Ross and I always compete and I have even beat him a time or two. Love this casual look...super classy, simple and fun!

    ReplyDelete
  48. I love this outfit...so preppy and cute!!

    When I saw "strike" I thought you were going to talk about how you were striking the fact that Target and Walmart are opening on Thanksgiving...crazy, right?

    Anyways...I'm pretty terrible at bowling, too!! :-)

  49. I support your decision to ditch the party. And I am also a terrible bowler...embarrassingly bad.

  69. Awww, what a fun night! Bowling is so much fun, but I'm pretty awful at it, I almost always gutter-ball it. :P This is one of my favorite outfits of yours, it is just insanely cute. Between the sweater over the button up, the jeans and the cute boots, this is just adorable. (I really love the little bit of the belt buckle, there just is nothing better than a good leather belt.)

    ReplyDelete
  70. I love the sweater/plaid shirt combo!

    I've never been good at bowling. Well, besides that time I was on a bumper bowling league. I think I was good... for a 6 year old!

  71. This outfit is so perfect for fall. I love it!

    I too am a terrible bowler. No matter how much I bowl it's awful!!

    Hope you had a great holiday yesterday. :)
