Fashion and Fun after Fifty

Hello Friends and Happy Tuesday

Do you remember Bill Withers’ 1977, hit song, Lovely Day?  Not all of the words in this song exactly describes my day but it definitely was a LOVELY DAY!  I took a day off from work so that my son could drop off his car and have it checked and then get to the orthodontist and dentist for treatments.  It was such a lovely day, not only because of the weather but because I got a chance to spend it with my oldest son.  Mothers with teenage and young adult sons know how difficult it can be to get them to spend time with you without complaint, so I took full advantage of it!

We started the day at Delaware Orthodontics in Middletown, this NASCAR-themed office is such a great place for kids of all ages, with video games and a flat screen TV to keep you occupied while in the waiting room.

After leaving the dentist office we stopped at Rugged Wearhouse where I found these pink, Gingham pumps on clearance for $5.00!

For lunch we went to Mickey D’s so I could try the new McWrap that I’ve heard so much about, it wasn’t bad for a fast food sandwich.  I had coupons so it was only $1.00, and Tayair was able to get a Buy 1 Get 1 FREE BigMac sandwich.

It definitely was a lovely day!

Yesterday’s staycation day was planned for dental, orthodontic and doctor appointments but I did manage to get in a little thrifting.  I had wanted to go to the Christiana Mall for the Fashion Night Out (FNO) events but it didn’t start until 6:00.  Wanting to be home before six I instead stopped at the Salvation Army.  Not having been to the Salvation Army since 1996, I noticed a drastic change for the better and will post pics, my thoughts and of course my finds this weekend.

I am on staycation today but it’s not being spent lying poolside, instead it’s in and out of doctor offices. Tayair had dental appointment for two cavities on his front teeth and then an orthodontist appointment to put the wires back onto his braces. He usually goes solo to his appointments but I needed to go for a consult with the orthodontist. Now that Tayair is 20, he will be undergoing facial surgery to correct his elongated jaw bone. Age 20/21 is the normal time that a person face has reached it’s lifetime size.

Tayair was born 3 months prematurely with a myriad of medical issues so he is used to surgery, but it has been 15 years since his last procedure and I am a little nervous. The surgery is considered routine by the surgeon but cosmetic so the cost will be out of pocket. We have to do what we have to do, and it will be an improvement for him so it’s worth it (hello more debt).

Heading out shortly for my annual GYN appointment in Wilmington. Depending on what time I get done I may stop at the Christiana Mall for tonight’s FNO activities.

Hope you are having a fantabulous day!

Yesterday I had a dental appointment and because I live in Delaware, it didn’t make since to drive to work in Pennsylvania afterwards so I took a vacation day.  The weather was extremely nice, not too hot and humid so instead of a maxi dress, I wore shorts, and a tank top with flip flops.  I joined the BLMGirls Facebook group and while reading the blogs I found recommendations for various photo editing websites, I used Pixl to edit and create this collage.
