AHHHHH- What a perfect weekend to revisit my love affair with Black & White stripes
Our hockey team, The LA Kings won the Stanley Cup Final on Friday night! It was a nail biter of a game going into a 2nd overtime period. I’d been home most of the week under the weather with a sore throat, etc. so it was frustrating to not cheer with my usual gusto!
Who’s a happy girl though?!
I never thought I could get that into watching a sport.
And because I’m so happy…what better song to accompany the rest of the post?!
I keep thinking any minute I’m going to get a call, or maybe just a text, from one of the Kings, thanking me for the weeks, nay, months of consistent, loving support I’ve been sending their way. Our whole family has been glued to the entire series.
I’m still hopeful. I know they’ve been terribly busy celebrating, shaving off their beards and getting some travel wash done.
And of course it’s also Father’s Day Sunday…
So HAPPY DAY to all you super Dads out there!!
In the meantime, I’ll be sharing some other black & white striped inspiration besides the LA Kings.
It’s become a bit of a tradition here on ‘Slim Paley’ hasn’t it? I think this might be my 5th instalment of B & W.
It’s my all time fav.
Talk about longevity. It just never gets old.
I just know someone’s going to call…I’m mind melding Justin Williams right now.
I mean, seriously, my commitment was unwavering and…committed…
But back to stripes

I have these B & W straws and love the way they look, but I find paper straws get funky after a short while.
I guess the trick is to drink fast Life’s too short for limp straws I always say.
Anyway, Hockey season may be over and yes, I’m sad about that, but I’m jumping for joy that summer is very quickly approaching.
Once again, To All you sweet Dads out there-You’re ALL Kings!!
Enjoy your day in whatever way your hearts desire-You deserve it!
