Hello Friends and Happy Tuesday

After all the cleaning of the closets I realized that I still didn’t have a decent pair of summer shorts.  I also needed wanted a white denim skirt to wear with a pair of blue and white Polka Dot flats.  Not wanting to pay retail because I can’t wear shorts to work I instead headed to the GW Boutique in Exton.

I hadn’t been to this location in almost a year and it had definitely changed.  They expanded into the vacant shoe store next door to make it larger with a better footprint.

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 Friday Eve!

Why do we use the phrase, “smile, say cheese” when taking pictures…”CHEESE” really, isn’t there another word in the English language that makes you wanna smile?

#1 son is my photographer and all he does is point and shoot, he never tells me to say “cheese” or “smile or even “hold in your stomach” (which is obvious in these pics), so this morning I decided not to smile and this is what we got.

Hello Friends and Happy Sunny Sunday

This morning’s church service was blessed with a sermon by a visiting minister from Wilmington, and visiting guests from a small neighboring church in Middletown.  A great way to start off the week and I am looking forward to an even more blessed work week, I hope it’s the same for you!

Hello Friends and Happy Sunday

This morning’s Church service was good, unfortunately the building was without heat but our souls was warmed by the Word.   I hope the rest of your day goes well and if you are off tomorrow for Dr. King’s Birthday, (I’m not), enjoy and be a blessing to someone!

I was really excited to realize that the Miche bag I had purchased in November at the Holiday Open House, matched the shoes that I purchased from Target last week. Don’t you love when that happens?

Hello friends and Happy Tuesday.  Today’s outfit is a dress that was previously worn in August, also on a Tuesday (here).  Transitioning it from summer to autumn by adding a faux leather jacket and peep toe shoes replaced with leather pumps.  The jacket was thrifted from Goodwill and the pumps are Carlos Santana, which I didn’t realize when I found them at The Salvation Army.  These pumps are classic, timeless and very comfortable.

If you follow me on Instagram (ablake48) you know that I’m participating in #pinkfor31days, in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  We are wearing pink nail polish for the month of October and I started with Revlon’s Fuchsia Fever.  I’ve lost 2 cousins and an aunt to this deadly disease and have 5 cousins who are breast cancer survivors.  A co-worker is now fighting her second bout after being in remission for over 10 years!  If  you are over 40 and haven’t scheduled your annual mammogram yet, please do so today, I’m scheduled for next week.

 

Have a fantabulous day and don’t forget to schedule your mammogram appointment – Smooches!
