Fashion and Fun after Fifty

Hello Friends and Happy Sunday

I hope you had a good weekend with an opportunity to spend quality time with your family/friends and did something fun and enjoyable.  Yesterday, I took my car in for an oil change and Malik was my chauffeur so I took full advantage by having him drive me all around town running errands – it was good being Mommy!  I had him drive me to Dunkin Donuts, Dutch Country Farmers Market, Family DollarPNC Bank and then finally to Lowe’s it was fun for me, not so much for him.

We gave him Tayair’s old car, remember the 2002 Hyundai Elantra, well you would have thought it was a new Mercedes because when he realized the plants had to ride in the back seat he wasn’t happy!  I  purchased two hanging baskets, a Color Combo Patio plant, Sweet Basil, Heirloom Tomatoes, Curled Parsley and Cilantro and they rode shotgun in the back seat fully protected by a yard of plastic – it was hilarious!

Today I cleaned in and around the pool and cleared out my little garden which was overrun with Mint from last year.

Hello friends and happy Saturday. Yesterday I left work early because I got really ill after eating a sample of pasta salad from Primo Hoagies. My head was spinning so badly that I didn’t think I would make it home. I did however, with a lot of prayer and by keeping my head steady and firmly pressed against the head rest. Because I rarely if ever get sick I always think the worst, this time a brain tumor or aneurysm came to mind – I know! I feel better but still have a dull headache which doesn’t seem to want to go away even with several Alleve capsules.

This morning I had my annual eye appointment and chose to have the full comprehensive Optomap and refraction exam to rule out any constricted blood vessels or major changes to my vision. Everything was normal and although I still have to wear glasses my vision got better, not worse. I took over 30 minutes, tried on more than 12 pairs looking for just the right frame to ensure I would wear the glasses as prescribed.

After leaving Halpern Eye Care I drove to Family Dollar for cleaning and beauty supplies. I got the normal items, PineSol, Gain detergent, cotton balls, tooth brushes and tooth paste but what caught my eye were the 3 displays perched high above the other beauty supplies – Sally Hansen, Kiss and Fingr’s nail decals. The Kiss and Fingr’s nail decals were clearly marked $3., but there wasn’t a price listed on the Sally Hansen products. Having bought Salon effects from both Walmart and Walgreens they are normally priced $8.50, so thinking they were at least that price I only put one box in my basket. At the register they rang up $5.00 which is a fantastic price, I will now search for coupons for my next purchase at Family Dollar.

Have a fantabulous night – Smooches!

Today was the first day of school for al-Malik and needless to say, he was not excited about boarding that bus this morning….kept whining something about wanting a car….in his dreams and my nightmares!!!  Time sure does fly, after today I only have 1 more chance to get that “first day of school” picture, then he’s off to college!!!  Where does the time go…I miss my babies 😦

Hubby started back to school yesterday, he’s a Student Advisor in a Middle School.  When I got home and asked how his day was, he was like…”oooh you know how it hard it is going back….” NOPE…cause I don’t get 3 months off in the summer buddy!!!!  I have a house of whiners!!!!

Skirt – Goodwill// Top – Goodwill// Bracelets and Necklace – Jewelrymax.net//Rings – Jewelry box//  Purse – Family Dollar// Pumps – The Shoe Dept// Sandals – Target (soon to be donated to Goodwill – they hurt my feet!)

When shopping at Family Dollar it’s usually to purchase cleaning products, but today we stopped in to get a soda and I found a few deals.
