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!

This morning I woke up blessed but stressed which is not the norm for me. Before driving into work I stopped at Middletown Car Care to check on the status of “Miranda”, Tayair’s old car. We took it in last week for a diagnosis to determine if is was worth having it serviced and then given to Malik or not serviced and left on the lot to be sold.  I don’t like being stressed or carrying a burden so I am going to relax, take a deep breath, exhale and then release it into the atmosphere.

Friday Eve and it’s not very Springy, it’s overcast and cloudy, a “jeans and t-shirt” type of day, but since I can’t wear that to work it’s a “two-tone dress” type of day.

Hello Friends, I hope you are having a Thankful Tuesday.

First and foremost I would like to offer up prayers and condolences to those affected by yesterday’s bombing at the Boston Marathon.  Last night at the dinner table I once again emphasized the importance of being thankful, staying positive and living each day as if it were your last because tomorrow is not promised to any of us.  The senseless waste of time on negativity and hatred is time that any of us can ill afford – Stay Blessed my Bloggy friends!

Not just today but every day, we have so much to be thankful for starting with the glorious gifts from Mother Nature.  As much as I dread getting out of bed in the morning, once I’m up and out I feel truly thankful and blessed, how can I not be?

Hello Friends and Happy Tuesday

‘Ole Man Winter is finally giving up with temps rising every day this week, by Good Friday all the snow should be melted. Yesterday schools dismissed early so kids in the neighborhood had a chance to play in the snow, 1 house even made a family of snow people including a dog, it was so cute.

I miss not having little guys anymore and hate to see kids that are too attached to electronics. I’ve seen toddlers in grocery carts playing with their parent’s iPhones or iPads.   I don’t know about you but sometimes I just want to go outside and play!  Growing up we were up and out early riding bikes, jumping Double Dutch, playing Jacks, BoxBall, Hop Scotch, Red Light Green Light 1-2-3, Freeze Tag, all kinds of outside games.

I truly miss those times – what were some of your favorite childhood games?

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 Hump Day Wednesday

It’s mid-week, the temps are rising and the sun will be shining – all is good in the neighborhood! Dark and dreary days really take a toll on the mind and body, which is not good when trying to lose weight. I need to step up my Zumba workouts and cut back on the carbs so that my clothes fit better…this skirt is tight!

Does the weather or seasons affect your weight?

Hello Friends and Happy Friday Eve

How often do you venture into the back of your closet? Are you afraid of going back there…are you afraid of what you might find…or are you just afraid of getting lost never to be seen again? I very rarely look in the back of my closet, not because of it’s size but because that’s where I keep clothes that no longer fit but don’t want to get rid of…as if I’ll ever wear my Wedding Night nightgown again!  Unfortunately, included with those items are also others that wish they could see the light of day because they have been forgotten yet still fit.

Thanks to the avalanche in my closet I can now see clear to the back and guess what I saw….pantsuits….lots and lots of pantsuits, which were very popular in the mid-90’s.  At one time in Corporate America before there was a “Work From Home” program when you could wear sweats, jeans or pajamas, Casual Friday’s for women meant wearing pantsuits to the office and I had quite a few.   The one that I am wearing today was probably kept because of the unique buttons which is it’s best feature otherwise, it’s just a “plain Jane” pantsuit.

I think my son may have been a little upset with me this morning and took it out on my head which in most pics has been chopped.
