Sharp Dressed Man

Late this afternoon, we headed back to Kohl's on a quest to buy Fuzzy's attire for the wedding!

We decided to skip the jackets, as they are so expensive!  Fuzzy is in men's sizes!  So, instead, we got Fuzzy a lovely pair of dress pants, a smart Arrow dress shirt, and a lovely silk tie.

Here is the result, so far:

Fuzzy picked the shirt color.  He likes to make a bold statement, as you can see.  You cannot tell as well in the pick, but the tie is shimmery, and has the blue in the shirt, and lighter hues, mixed with a whole range of beiges.  Really smart looking!

We need to address shoes with him.  I will save that for another day!

Hammer found a Transformers tee shirt at Kohl's.  He was thrilled, and he is soooo happy he doesn't have to go to the wedding and get dressed up.  He thinks the dress clothes would have bothered his Asperger's sensitivities.  Honestly, he is probably right. 

Everything always works out for a reason, I always believe.

We had a nice dinner at Chili's!  Yes, Chili's again!  The food is good and reasonable, and now that the kids eat adult sized meals, that is an important variable!

Libby is being so silly tonight!  She is barking at everything!  Usually, she only acts this way when Hubby is out!  She really isn't a barker at all, so when she gets like this, it is so unusual and annoying!  LOL 

Oh, I have to make a correction!  Earlier today, I said Fuzzy was doing his rifle badge, I was wrong.  He was working on his 'shotgun' badge.  Apparently, they are two different badges!  LOL

He did great!  In order to earn the badge, you need to shoot 24 out of 50 clay skeet targets.  According the woman who has run the range for almost 25 years, very few boys get more than half way on the first try...

Fuzzy got 21 out of 50!  He only missed the badge by three!  Hubby, the other ass't scoutmaster, his son, and the range lady were so proud of him!  And, of course, all of us who were home were proud, too. 

And, now....

Thank you so very much!  I can't believe how many wonderful people have decided to do Pumpkin's Meme!  You've made her giddy with delight, as she reads and responds to each one! 

And, you have all really touched my heart!  Thank you, from the bottom of it!

Enjoy your Sunday tomorrow!

be well,
Dawn

Wow!  Take pictures of the kids when they are all dressed up.  Is it wrong to tell the Fuzzmeister to call me when he's 18?!  I kid! I kid you!  I wouldn't do that!  Anyway,Sasha's not a barker either.  Mainly,it's because Sash was the runt and her mom died giving birth to her and so she never learned how to actually bark!  As far as Pumpkin goes well, the kid is great!!!  -Dawn-

I just love the dark blue shirt!  Dressed up is a lot different than it used to be.  Thank goodness.  
Dawn, again with the food!  I've got to go have a snack now.   I'm glad you all got out together.

That tie is very cool!  Very 80's MTV-ish.  When will Pumpkin have her own blog?  I bet she'd have many readers.

i like shopping at Kohl's too.
They have a lot of nice things and you can find some great bargains.
Good luck to Fuzzy on getting his badges, We shoot twice a week.
I took a "women's only" skeet shooting trip back in May and (pardon the pun...) HAD A BLAST> I hope he does well and stays safe.

Will check back soon.

Ahhhh, I love Kohls......Fuzzy is gonna look SO handsome....I LOVE the shirt and tie!!!!

We had dinner at Chili's yesterday too!  We don't go there often but we were on our way home from vacation and wanted to stop somewhere.  What an AWESOME menu!!  We ordered way too much and brought home a ton of leftovers.  

Hope you have a wonderful Sunday!

Congrats to Fuzzy!  That's one heck of a great score - I used to go skeet-shooting as a kid, loved it.  Never did as well as Fuzzy tho.  Stay well - xoxo CATHY

Dressing an aspie boy is a trial that only mothers of aspie boys can truly understand. We had a kohl's meltdown a few weeks ago because Austin was SURE he still wears a size 8. He refused to try the size 14 or 16 that he actually needed... until I got him into them and he found out they felt so much better and had MORE POCKETS. At least we're past the "no sock" stage. That went on until he was 11. He could not STAND socks on his feet EVER. Just wanted to let you know... I know what you're dealing with my Kcup drinking, aspie raising friend!

So much good news!  I have gone skeet shooting once.  It is NOT an easy thing!  Good for your boy!
Great outfit also!
We really like Chili's.  Especially the service at ours.  Refills before you start to think about them needing refilling and other nice things.

Your son did good, must have a good eye. That outfit looks great too. I can remember when my sons went from dirty jeans to "dress up" clothes and worrying how their hair looked lol...preening is wonderful...love, Sandi
