Hello Friends and Happy Hump Day Wednesday!

Hubby and I left early Saturday morning so we could attend the Wedding of my 2nd cousin Kyton Carolina, who was getting married to Shivon Anderson in Mt. Vernon, NY.  We wanted to be on the road before 9:30 am so that we could cross the GW Bridge before noon…unfortunately it didn’t happen.

It was smooth sailing going across the Delaware Memorial Bridge

Driving the New Jersey Turnpike wasn’t too bad either…until Exit 11 and that’s when the backup occurred due to road construction!

New York City

Finally the skyline of NYC

George Washington Bridge

Crossed the GW way off schedule

We finally made it to New Rochelle at 1:00 pm. but with less than an hour to relax and converse with our friends before dressing.  Sherri and I sat outside and had a Barcardi Mojito which definitely helped me unwind, hubby stay inside and talked with Curtis.

Unfortunately my family fun ended abruptly when our son called to tell us he was rear-ended in the school parking lot after football practice.  Hubby and I never made it to the reception at Glen Island Park instead we turned around and headed back to Delaware.

Hello Friends and Happy Sunday

There’s something special about going to a Church Service on a Sunday morning after a sad Saturday night.  The lifting up of prayers in the sanctuary and bonding brightens your day and provides clarity.

I thank God for being blessed and highly favored and wish the same for you,

MAY PEACE AND BLESSINGS BE UPON YOU MY BLOGGY FRIENDS!

Joy Cometh in the Morning

by David J. Stewart

“…weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.” -Psalm 30:5

 

Hello Friends and Happy Sunday

I trust you all had a nice weekend and were able to relax or do something fun and exciting or both!  I wasn’t able to clean out my closets but I did have a busy fun filled weekend which started with the honor of being chosen, “Top Blogger of the Week” by Sverve.  I was in a fantastic mood as I headed out leaving my men doing yard work which wasn’t what my sons had planned for their weekend.  While in town I stopped at my favorite lunch spot, The Java House Cafe where they were hosting a book signing by Christian author Richelle Rodgers.  Her book, Forever Growing A Journey of Trust is a motivational book on empowerment and growing your relationship with God.  Richelle is a retired Army Vet who remains very active in supporting other female vets and is currently working on a Women Veterans Leadership Awards Symposium to be held in DC this fall.

Today, The Java House Cafe hosted another book signing by author, Jacqueline Charmane, her 5th book, They Raped Me Once Over and Over Again, is a true story based on her life.  She spoke briefly about some of the heart breaking events in her life including the emotional and physical abuse by both her rapist and husband as well as the the kidnapping of her son. I was fortunate to have had the opportunity to speak with each author after the events, purchased an autographed copy of the books, and took pictures which I will post later this week.

Today, was a bright and sunny day, a little cool but I had just purchased this Printed Cold Shoulder Dress from Avon and wanted to wear it to church.

It reminds me of a 70’s retro dress with the slit sleeves, do you remember Julie from The Mod Squad?

Hello Friends and Happy Resurrection Sunday

Wishing You and Yours a Blessed Day!

I was up at 5:30 a.m. but was still late for Sunrise Service because it started at 6:00, why I thought it began at 6:30 is beyond me.  I got there just in time for offering and hymns but most importantly didn’t miss the sermon.  Church service was good and we had several visitors from  local churches and a great breakfast downstairs afterwards.

The weather although dry was cool, wore a cardigan over sleeveless sheath dress.

Hello Friends and Happy Monday

I hope you all had a good weekend, mine was nice and it started with a Transformation Bonfire at church Friday night, where we all witnessed a Meteorite.  I had just put away my iPad after taking pictures of the bonfire so didn’t get a chance to capture it, did you see it?  We were outside in the cold so the songs, prayers and Sermonette was short, and it ended with an unburdening. We were encouraged to write down anything that we wanted to be released from and then cast it into the fire.  Only hours before I was informed that my Aunt has passed, she had been suffering with emphysema for years and God finally released her from her pain and suffering – RIP Aunt Myrtle.

We woke up this morning to a Wonderful Winter Wonderland…Spring will just have to wait a little longer.  Although it is very pretty to look at it wasn’t so pretty to drive in, it took 2 hours to get to work and it’s still snowing so it will be a long commute home.

Today’s outfit had to be changed from a skirt and blouse to pants and top for a casual and comfortable Monday.

Hello Friends and Happy Thursday, hope your day is going well.

Having Tuesday off from work has me a day behind mentally which may not be a bad thing because tomorrow is FRI-YAY!!!!  It was somewhat depressing reading through the blogs last night, seeing all those beautiful and colorful maxi dresses and wishing for warmer days instead of dealing with these cold Winter winds.  This morning we were greeted with snow showers…really Mother Nature – c’mon Spring!

In these pictures I may be smiling but I’m definitely not excited about these outfits, I want to shed the layers!

I had hoped that tomorrow the weather would be warmer but most likely it will be a “50’s Friday”  Oh well, the temps will eventually increase but  until then I will be wearing clothing from the winter wardrobe.

Linking up today with Bloglovin’ Blog Hop, Almost Friday Thursday Blog Hop and Papa is a Preacher, come on over and meet some new bloggers.

Have a fantabulous afternoon and don’t forget to check out the FB Page “Bloggers4JCPenney” – there are some great new postings.

Smooches!

Hello Friends and Happy Monday, I hope you had an enjoyable weekend.

I had an online weekend…reading and commenting on Blogs…updating status’…tweeting….Instagraming…Sverving…and…creating a Facebook Campaign, “Bloggers4JCPenney“. There were several bloggers who liked the concept and submitted their posts, I hope you’ll check it out and do the same.

Saturday, I received my first Influenster VOXBOX, and will be posting a review later this week. Sunday, I went to church, wore green and cooked CornBeef, Cabbage and Potatoes for St. Patty’s Day. Tomorrow #1 son has an interview at Bank of America, he and I will be meeting his DVR job coach at 1:00.  The job market is tough made even more so when you have a disability so please say a little prayer for him.

We were all hoping for another warm weekend but it seems like ‘ole Man Winter is back for one last hurrah! Wednesday is officially the first day of Spring so I’m mixing in a little bright colors with today’s all black outfit.

Are you planning a special “1st Day of Spring” outfit or will you wait until it gets warmer?
