I stopped at Save aLot to pick up a few items and was a bit disappointed that the lines were long and there weren’t any cashiers at the registers. It was overheard that they can’t afford to bring in cashiers so are using store managers to ring up purchases. Not sure if this is what they mean by “SAVE A LOT” – so sad!

Woohoo, it’s FRI-YAY, the Friday before a holiday – let the eating and drinking begin (oh wait… a few more hours before the drinking can begin)! At least once per quarter a coworker and I leave our desks for lunch and go to PrimoHoagies. for the best hoagie (wedge to a New Yorker, sub to a Delawarean) this side of town! Their menu is gigantic, it takes several minutes to read and then decide what I want and there are always free samples to try while waiting. Today’s freebies were pasta salads and Herr’s Pretzels. Having a Primo Hoagie for lunch is a great way to end the work week and begin the weekend.
Blessings to you and yours for a FAN-TAB-U-LOUS weekend – be safe!!
Rainbow Shops is having a clearance sale, 2/$20, on selected shoes and sandals so I picked up these in black/white and another pair in neon green/white.
They are super comfortable, I may have to go back and get the neon yellow/black and neon pink/black!
I love smoothies and this week I decided to have one each day as a breakfast meal substitute. I don’t use measurements, I just put in a few handfuls of greens, fruits, enough liquid for smooth blending and a dash or two of agave.

Conversation this morning:
Hubby:…whoa…you look good….
Hubby: no, you just don’t look like you are going to work
Me: what…too much?!
Hubby: no…no…I just said, you look good
Okay, so he said, I looked good…but what…too much? That’s it…it’s official….today is Tropical Thursday and I am on vacation – MENTALLY!!! NO WORK – .NO WORRIES….sssh just don’t tell anybody – I want this dream to last all day!!
I remember seeing this tropical print dress at Goodwill and immediately thinking about sitting on a beach, with an umbrella drink in my hand. Unfortunately there are no plans to do that so I figured I might as well wear the dress and daydream about sitting on a beach with an umbrella drink in my hand. Thanks to the soaring temps today it’s helping to feed the fantasy.
Dress – Goodwill// Sandals – Bare Feet Shoes (last season)// Bracelet – Rainbow Shops// Ring – Avon // Earrings – jewelry box
I am not one to clean my makeup brushes on a regular, but when I do I like using elf Brush Shampoo. On average I spend 35-45 minutes getting ready for work (takes longer the older you get), and it only took a few extra minutes to clean the brushes. I let them air dry flat on a paper towel and they were ready to be put away before bedtime. I remember sending a Twitter message to Sam Fine and his recommendation was to air dry brushes flat as opposed to on an angle.
I purchased the elf Brush Shampoo at Target and this desk organizer from Goodwill, it’s perfect to hold my brushes .
Alrighty now….here we go again…the next heatwave is coming. Excessive heat warning is in effect starting tomorrow with temps reaching 97 on Saturday. I miss the days when I could work from home because I would definitely be poolside with my laptop on Friday! Oh well, those days are long gone and now I can wear my old favorite summer work clothes starting with this 2 piece skirt and top set. The sandals were purchased from Burlington Coat Factory last year to wear to my son’s graduation, but they weren’t comfortable enough to be worn all day so they ended up in the back of the closet.
