It is no secret that I went to Ole Miss and have a deep deep love for Oxford, Mississippi. I have been devastated the past few weeks with the news that Colonel Reb will no longer be in production after August of this year. I know they took away his presence at the football games two years ago but I don't think that anyone thought it would come to this! I have joined the rest of the Ole Miss community in my scramble to procure all things Colonel Reb in his last few weeks on store shelves. This has not proven easy considering I live over 5,000 miles from Oxford. If ANYONE has a hot tip on where to find Colonel Reb tervis tumblers of ANY size, the reward will be great!! Anyways, I digress. I received a facebook message from a friend of mine today telling me that there were Colonel Reb jon-jon shortalls for sale at The Divine Children's Show on Facebook. I nearly panicked. I hadn't even see the shortalls yet but I knew I had to have them! I'd been sitting home with no car bored all day and this was my only happiness!! I quickly located the page and couldn't believe my luck!!! This is the cutest page ever!! I recommend everyone check it out!! The shortalls were only $29 and that included shipping!! For anyone who knows about children's clothes (and I certainly don't know much) a hand smocked outfit like this can run upwards of $50 or more. I really didn't have to think twice before I bought them. It completely made my day. The End. I have nothing else to say about my day other than I enjoyed my dinner with my husband and my child now has Colonel Reb smocked shortalls. Life is good.
