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 and Happy Thursday, hope your day is going well.

Having Tuesday off from work has me a day behind mentally which may not be a bad thing because tomorrow is FRI-YAY!!!!  It was somewhat depressing reading through the blogs last night, seeing all those beautiful and colorful maxi dresses and wishing for warmer days instead of dealing with these cold Winter winds.  This morning we were greeted with snow showers…really Mother Nature – c’mon Spring!

In these pictures I may be smiling but I’m definitely not excited about these outfits, I want to shed the layers!

I had hoped that tomorrow the weather would be warmer but most likely it will be a “50’s Friday”  Oh well, the temps will eventually increase but  until then I will be wearing clothing from the winter wardrobe.

Linking up today with Bloglovin’ Blog Hop, Almost Friday Thursday Blog Hop and Papa is a Preacher, come on over and meet some new bloggers.

Have a fantabulous afternoon and don’t forget to check out the FB Page “Bloggers4JCPenney” – there are some great new postings.

Hello Friends and Happy Fri-Yay Fri-Yay Fri-Yay

After a long restless night due to a toothache I awoke to this gift from God!

OOTD 1 25 13 007

This is the calm before the storm as Winter is definitely in full force, with snow scheduled to begin falling around 3 p.m.  The roads have been brined to cut down on commuter accidents because the temps are also going to drop even lower into the single digits.

As you can see, I am fully prepared and hopefully will leave early enough to stop and pick up a bottle of wine (for me) and Chinese take-out for my men. My plans are to be indoors snug-as-a-bug-in-the-rug until at least Sunday.

OOTD 1 25 13 009OOTD 1 25 13 011

These Paisley Skinny Jeans and Infinity Scarf were both on clearance at Target and men’s sweater was thrifted from GW Boutique (Goodwill). The boots have been in my closet for several years and most likely were purchased from Payless.

Believe it or not, this faux fur vest once was a coat that I DIY’d because it didn’t fit properly. I shorten the length using the excess for a scarf, removed the sleeves and made a pair of leg warmers.

Do you refashion clothing, if so, what have you done and how did it work out?

Hello Friends and Happy Hump Day Wednesday.

I apologize if when you read today’s title you thought I would be posting about Barefoot or Lindeman Sweet Red Wines – nope, it’s not Friday nor is this Instagram!
Today’s posted outfit is Wine in color, or you could call it Oxblood or you could call it Burgundy – whatever … I chose Wine because it starts with a “W” and so does Wednesday – u so silly!  How would you describe the color?

Hello friends and Happy Fri-Yay!!  Today it’s casual and comfortable to work wearing jeans and loafers.  Saturday I will start my day at the Farmers Market hawking my wears trying to make a little extra cash.  Later in the afternoon I will be heading to Dover to meet my cousin at Dover Downs.  She is taking a bus trip down from New Rochelle, NY and I hope to turn the little cash into something larger – wish me luck and good fortune!!

Have a fantabulous weekend!

Thank Goodness It’s Tuesday – which is officially my Friday at least as far as work is concerned.  After today I will have the next 3 days off from work, no 3 hour daily commuting in rush hour traffic until Monday the 9th – oh happy day!

I plan on spending most of my staycation lounging poolside eating, drinking, and reading.  I’ll throw in a little housework, movie watching and napping to round things out – lol.

I hope you and yours have a fun-filled and safe 4th.

Woohoo, it’s FRI-YAY, the Friday before a holiday – let the eating and drinking begin (oh wait… a few more hours before the drinking can begin)! At least once per quarter a coworker and I leave our desks for lunch and go to PrimoHoagies. for the best hoagie (wedge to a New Yorker, sub to a Delawarean) this side of town! Their menu is gigantic, it takes several minutes to read and then decide what I want and there are always free samples to try while waiting. Today’s freebies were pasta salads and Herr’s Pretzels. Having a Primo Hoagie for lunch is a great way to end the work week and begin the weekend.

Blessings to you and yours for a FAN-TAB-U-LOUS weekend – be safe!!

Today’s special

It’s the bread that make the hoagies so good.

So many choices and this is only part of the full menu
