This exciting opportunity was offered to me by The Money School of Delaware in April at The Green Tie Event and I have been over the top excited ever since.  I haven’t taught since 1983, and am really looking forward to returning to my first love.  

My grandmother would also be super duper excited and I know she will be watching over me.

Hello Friends and Happy Monday!

I hope you had a wonderful weekend, the weather was simply gorgeous in Delaware despite a few intermittent rain drops.  Saturday I spent most of the morning in my son’s closet gathering clothes to be donated to the Cancer Federation. He doesn’t outgrow his clothes as quickly as his younger brother, but I was able to find enough to fill two large bags.

60th Birthday Bash 062

Saturday evening hubby and I attended a celebration in honor of his friend’s 60th birthday. Hollywood is a long time friend and is the lead singer of Hollywood And The Final Kutt Band.  They have played all over Delaware and can be seen next at the World Cafe Live in Wilmington on September 5th.

He and his wife live in a lovely row home in Wilmington where they have created a mini outdoor sanctuary filled with plants, a fish pond, cats, dogs and birds.

Hello Friends and Happy Sunday

Remember last Saturday’s 9 hour closet clean out?  Well I am still trying to organize it, and even though I got rid of a lot I still have a lot more to purge.  I wish I could organize my closet to make it look like this:

or like this…

I know I will never have anything like this:

or anything like Mimi’s closet

But I definitely need HELP with this mess!

“Vanessa Williams is one of the most respected and multi-faceted performers in entertainment today.  Vanessa’s passion for heart health education is a personal one – both of her grandmothers died from heart attacks at a young age, which has been the driving force behind Vanessa’s own healthy and active lifestyle. ”

Vanessa has teamed up with Bayer HealthCare, the makers of Bayer® Aspirin to support the Handbags & Hearts campaign, which urges women to take the Handbags & Hearts pledge to carry aspirin at all times to be prepared for a sudden heart attack.  You too can lend your support in many ways including sharing a story of  how heart disease may has affected  you or a loved one.

It all started with an email containing a picture of these Fioni floral heels and then another email with a $10 off coupon, it was then on like popcorn!  I’m so sorry that I fell off the “won’t shop this month” wagon…but not so sorry that I won’t share this Payless shoe haul with you!

Fioni Kit Print Fioni Kit Print

These Fioni Kit Print heels were my intended but weren’t available in my size, the sales associate called other stores and found a pair at the Concord Mall.  I was then given a $4.00 coupon for the inconvenience of having to go to another location to purchase.   The manager and both sales associates were very pleasant and helpful, making my shopping experience a positive one, so much so that I purchased 4 pairs!

Payless Shoe Haul
$10 off $25 purchase coupon

I drove to the Concord Mall after work to get the Fioni Kit Print and also got the Fioni Kipsie in Pink, spending an additional $26.08, used AAA card and $2.00 off code for completing the online survey printed on the receipt!  This shoe haul netted 6 pairs of shoes, averaging $10.60  each pair, I now have more than enough for the season and will begin purging existing to donate or sell at next month’s flea market.

Next stop is to the salon for a much needed pedicure!

Have a great weekend – Smooches!

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!

Linking up today with ColorBlind: Thrifters Anonymous & Megnificent Monday – hop over and meet a new blogger.

Have a fantabulous afternoon – Smooches!
