Hello Friends and Happy Friday Eve!

Can you believe it’s the last Thursday of the month, tomorrow is the first day of February. February 1st is also my “baby boy’s” Birthday and he will be 17 – somebody is getting old and it isn’t me!!!!
February, 1996, two days after he was born we were hit with a major snow storm that kept us house bound for almost a month. I hope that doesn’t happen again, the storm of 2010 was more than enough to last a lifetime – remember that one?

No snow storms in the forecast, just bright sunshine and high winds, but not like what tore through some southern states last night – we are truly blessed!

These blue suede booties are different than the one’s featured here.  They were purchased last year from The Shoe Dept, and also came in red which I didn’t get – wish I had because it would have saved me from going to the mall today.  By the way, have you been to JC Penney’s lately?  If not, GO, they have $1 ~ $3 ~ $5 and $10 clearance racks, I got a red skirt and a pair of capris for $5 each!  Their new “one price no sales” marketing campaign didn’t work out so well, and now they are restructuring, so head over for some great bargains.  The “housewives of Exton” were racking up on kids clothes on clearance for a dollar which are better deals than Goodwill!

Linking up with Thoughtful Thursday & Imprintalish – hop over and meet a new blogger

Have a good afternoon – Smooches!

A few weeks ago I was nominated for another Very Inspiring Blogger Award by The Big Forest, a blogger from the UK whose pictures always delight me.  If in the real world we could present these types of awards to people who we’ve never met but simply enjoy what they represent I think the world would be a better place.  I am always honored and humbled to receive recognition from a fellow blogger and take great pride in nominating others.

The rules of acceptance are:

Display the award logo on your blog

4. It takes a lot to make me angry and I can’t remember the last time I was;

5. I am 3.5 years nicotine free and being a quitter was the best decision of my life;

6. I look for the good in everyone, however, some people make it very difficult;

I have a LOVE-HATE relationship with Tar’jay – I love their clothing and shoes and of course their awesome clearance sales but I hate that I can’t resist leaving without making a major purchase.  I drive past Target on Route 202 everyday and have been patiently waiting for their Cap Toe shoes to go on sale.  They were the “must haves” for the holidays with many bloggers Instagraming pictures, but I refused to pay full price.  I wanted a pair in red so last night I finally decided to stop…OMG!!!

Unfortunately, I was unable to find a pair of red, Cap Toes in my size but I did get these jewel-toned, embellished and zebra print loafers for $7.48 pair!

I checked the accessories and found a tote in Cognac which is a very neutral color that works well with most outfits.

I also purchased two pencil skirts and 2 tops but if you are looking for colored skinny jeans they have a large assortment of colors and patterns most  priced below $20.00.

Don’t forget to bring in your own reusable bag for an additional 5 cents off per bag. Check your local Target for more amazing clearance deals – Happy Shopping!

Hello Friends and Happy Hump Day Wednesday.

I apologize if when you read today’s title you thought I would be posting about Barefoot or Lindeman Sweet Red Wines – nope, it’s not Friday nor is this Instagram!
Today’s posted outfit is Wine in color, or you could call it Oxblood or you could call it Burgundy – whatever … I chose Wine because it starts with a “W” and so does Wednesday – u so silly!  How would you describe the color?

I’ve lived in my development for over 20 years and our house was built several months before any of our neighbors.  We’ve never had any problems and we speak in passing, but no one has ever said, “You’re a good neighbor”.

 I started my blog 8 months ago and to my great surprise was recently nominated to receive a “Good Neighbor Award”.  Saturday morning en route to Dover, I received an email from the award’s sponsor, Katherine of Pilowsalamode, and got so excited, joyously telling my son.  He was not impressed, looked at me like I had 4 heads and kept on driving.  The excitement grew as I read more, it wasn’t just the award, I along with others was nominated anonymously by fellow bloggers and their comments were so heart felt and touching.  Each morning, I will get a cup of coffee and visit the  blogger neighborhood reading and meeting my virtual neighbors.

 I want to thank Katherine for sponsoring the award, thank and send a great big HUG and SMOOCH to the person who nominated me and congratulations to all the award winners.

 Have a fantabulous day!
