Mike Nesmith is My Favorite Monkee
Summer 2016 Challenge: Day 13
I’ve posted before about my love of the 1960’s group The Monkees and how they are my favorite band in whole wide world. If you follow me on Facebook, you have heard my obsess about the NEW Monkees album “Good Times” and how I have listened to it every single day since it was released.
However, I am not sure if I have really said that Shawn was born on Mike Nesmith and Davy Jones’ birthday. I have told Shawn from birth that he is just destined to be a Monkees fan and while he doesn’t agree all the time, he does enjoy their music on occasion. We’re working on it… lol
I texted my best Monkees friend Erica that I was thinking of dressing Shawn up like Mike Nesmith, she was super excited! I already had the green wool hat but I needed to make an 8 button shirt. I bought two red shirts and cut a panel out of one of them and attached the buttons. Then it was a matter of finding grey dress pants and he was all set to go.
He already had longer hair with a little side burn action going on because we let his hair grow out for crazy hair day at school, so everything just worked out perfectly. Shawn is such a good sport sometimes when it comes to me being able to dress him up.
