BUT, as spiritual as all that sounds, if you know Jaime, then you also know there are lots of fun moments when you are with her. And that being said, I feel a responsibility to give you an inside peek into what challenges a missionary woman faces in finding the appropriate clothing to take into a country like Papua New Guinea. I realize this is not a struggle all missionary wives have to deal with. But, in PNG it is highly offensive for women to wear anything that is fitted around the hips and waist, so with today's styles, this is a bit of a hunt.
So, when Jason and Bruce offered to watch all five kids for a few hours on Saturday evening, we did what girls do...SHOP...at Kmart...where they were playing some of the best jazz tunes of the 1980's! Here are a few of the outtakes from our evening:
|We decided this might be just a wee bit much for the natives of PNG|
|We texted Jason about these...his exact words "that's not appropriate for anywhere". Darn.|
|"Booty" inflatable boot supports made us giggle....|
and we decided these probably wouldn't be
the best use of this missionary's money
|BUT....here it is...the fashionable long cotton skirt...|
in not just this color...but also blue and black! And they were on sale!
It was a very profitable night for Jaime's wardrobe!
