Hello Friends and Happy Monday

Today’s outfit is the Avon color block dress which was first featured in this May 2012 post, wow, time sure does fly by!  This time I decided to pair it with a little animal print from the matching earring & necklace set to the shoes and small pouch which was a DIY project.

The lucite earrings and necklace set was purchased at Jewelrymax.com and the lucite rings from Burlington Coat Factory

Hello Friends and Happy Friday Eve!

This morning I woke up blessed but stressed which is not the norm for me. Before driving into work I stopped at Middletown Car Care to check on the status of “Miranda”, Tayair’s old car. We took it in last week for a diagnosis to determine if is was worth having it serviced and then given to Malik or not serviced and left on the lot to be sold.  I don’t like being stressed or carrying a burden so I am going to relax, take a deep breath, exhale and then release it into the atmosphere.

Friday Eve and it’s not very Springy, it’s overcast and cloudy, a “jeans and t-shirt” type of day, but since I can’t wear that to work it’s a “two-tone dress” type of day.

Hello Friends and Happy Tuesday

‘Ole Man Winter is finally giving up with temps rising every day this week, by Good Friday all the snow should be melted. Yesterday schools dismissed early so kids in the neighborhood had a chance to play in the snow, 1 house even made a family of snow people including a dog, it was so cute.

I miss not having little guys anymore and hate to see kids that are too attached to electronics. I’ve seen toddlers in grocery carts playing with their parent’s iPhones or iPads.   I don’t know about you but sometimes I just want to go outside and play!  Growing up we were up and out early riding bikes, jumping Double Dutch, playing Jacks, BoxBall, Hop Scotch, Red Light Green Light 1-2-3, Freeze Tag, all kinds of outside games.

I truly miss those times – what were some of your favorite childhood games?

Hello Friends and Happy DST Monday!

Woke up thinking it would be a bright and sunny Pre-Spring day, instead it was a dark and damp foggy morning, oh well at least I woke up a lot of people didn’t! (Blessed). The day started out much like most people’s heads…a little foggy, why don’t we abolish Daylight Savings Time, it’s original purpose is no longer valid, what do you think?

Driving in fog is dangerous yet some people feel the need to speed which makes it even worse, unfortunately 6 teenagers lost their lives in Ohio due excessive speeding – God rest their souls! (News Report)

Which brings me to another reason why I don’t like car shopping for my son’s, too many young people die in car crashes. As most of you know my lil sis, Gloria was killed in a car crash in 1992, she was only 29, and not a day goes by that I don’t think of her!

Shake it off … shake it off… sorry, didn’t mean to bring you down!

Let’s clear the way for the outfit of the day.

What do you think about these pumps with this outfit – should I have worn the green cap-toe pumps from Target?

Hello Friends and Happy Fri-Yay!

Hear Ye Hear Ye We Lose an hour of Sleepy on Sundy – boo!

The good thing is we made it through another work week and the weekend is almost here!  I am so looking forward to it and will make up that hour loss on Sunday morning.  Saturday night will be a late night with me up watching Saturday Night Live with Justin Timerlake as the host AND musical guest!!!!!  JT is my all time favorite SNL host and with his new song “Suit and Tie” it’s going to be awesome!  Last week Kevin Hart was alright, his opening monologue was hilarious but the skits needed more rehearsing and his use of the words “G*D Dammit” was a bit offensive to me.

I am so looking forward to the beginning of Spring and was taken back when I saw snow flakes this morning, they didn’t last long and I hope not to see anymore until December!!

Bye Bye Snow… Hello Spring Flowers.

Hello Friends and Happy Hump Day Wednesday, we’re on the down stroke to the weekend!

Yesterday after work I stopped for gas, paid $3.67/gallon, getting just enough to get home or to a cheaper station. This morning it was $3.69! It’s times like these that I miss living in New York and taking public transportation. Delaware has DART Bus service but I would rather drive than risk being hit over the head with a gun for a bite of sandwich – don’t believe me…it happened on Monday, read the article here

Do you ever drive around burning gas looking for cheaper gas – crazy right!  If I did commute to work on public transportation this Merona tote would be perfect to carry.  It’s not as though I have a lot but if I did, it’s very roomy.  It could also be used an an overnight bag, what do you think?

Animal Print booties were purchased last year on clearance at Deb Shop and the pantsuit is from the back of the closet – the shoulder pads dates it.  Worthington scoop neck top was $4 from JC Penney and Merona tote was part of my shoe haul from Target.

Hello Friends and Happy President’s Day 2013

Lucky lucky you if you are home today on holiday because “it’s as cold as a witches’ tit”!   I remember that as being one of my mother’s favorite sayings during those cold New York winters.  Do you remember any crude statements that your parents or grandparents liked to say way before it would be considered politically incorrect? (careful)

In honor of President’s Day I was going to wear Red with Blue and White Polka Dots but it’s just too cold.  Instead I chose the warm and cozy flannel shirt that my son put in the “to be donated” box but never made it, a thrifted khaki skirt and knee high boots – it’s all about keeping warm!  I like these boots because they can be worn full length showing the brass studs or folded over to reveal the leopard print – two styles in one for less than $20!
