Hello Friends and Happy Friday Eve!

Before I begin, I want to say that I am thankful for my Bloggy friends, for their kind words and understanding of yesterday’s post it was truly a blessing – THANK YOU!  Life is so precious and fleeting that we should all stay focused on the positive, spreading kindness and love as we are more alike than most would care to admit.

Now today is a brand new day and mine started with a Green Smoothie made with spinach, almond rice milk and a banana but I must also have 20 ounces of coffee for the road. I am not a coffee snob nor a Starbucks drinker and have purchased coffee at WAWA, 7-11 and Dunkin Donuts, but the best is my homemade, flavored Java, this morning it was Melitta Hazelnut.

What is your must-have morning beverage?

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 Fri-Yay!

This morning I jumped out of bed when I realized it was Friday….tomorrow I can sleep in – yay!  I am such a sleepy head, I never get enough sleep – sometimes I am tired of being tired.  Commuting back and forth to work 1 & 1/2 hours each way every day really takes a toll on me and my car.  Tomorrow I am sleeping in until noon!!!

How many of you remember  Elvis Presley’s hit, Blue Suede Shoes – well this is my version of the shoe, actually booties and they are much nicer than what he sang about.  If you do remember Elvis, what was your favorite song or movie, I liked Blue Hawaii.

OOTD 1 11 13 007OOTD 1 11 13 006These blue studded booties by Bamboo were purchased several years ago from Burlington Coat Factory and the skinny jeans were $16.44, from “Wally World” (Walmart).  They had several different colors and I may have to get another pair because of the fit.  I chose 1 size up because they are low riders, but I think I can get away with a pair in my regular size.  The sleeveless tank was purchased on clearance from Boscov’s, and the jacket was thrifted from GW Boutique (Goodwill).  Silver cuff bracelet from Citi Trend, rings and earrings from my jewelry box.

Wednesday, my son’s Business Class went on a Field Trip to Macy’s in NYC, he purchased a pair of Nike Sneakers and this T-Shirt which I thought was really nice.  I can’t wait until he no longer wants it because I’d love to wear it!

Thank Goodness It’s Tuesday – which is officially my Friday at least as far as work is concerned.  After today I will have the next 3 days off from work, no 3 hour daily commuting in rush hour traffic until Monday the 9th – oh happy day!

I plan on spending most of my staycation lounging poolside eating, drinking, and reading.  I’ll throw in a little housework, movie watching and napping to round things out – lol.

I hope you and yours have a fun-filled and safe 4th.

Pennsylvania has some beautiful scenic views and I am fortunate enough to be surrounded by one of them at my workplace. Commuting almost 2 hours a day in major traffic is very stressful, but thanks to God’s gift of nature I am calmed at the end of the drive. I enjoy taking walks at lunch even dodging the geese poop because I know there are people who do not have the gift of sight to appreciate the beauty that surrounds us.
