Fashion and Fun after Fifty

Hello Friends, I hope you all had a wonderful and restful long holiday weekend!

Today the weather didn’t cooperate so I didn’t get a chance to sit by the pool, so instead I watched “The Haves and Have Nots” marathon on OWNTV Network and worked on my Blog with next week’s posts.

Hello Friends and Happy Tuesday!

What in the world happened to June – it just flew by without saying “Goodbye” or anything!  Before I knew it, it was July and my second month of Nutrisystem foods had arrived before I posted the results on Day 28.

Take a look back, this was me on Nutrisystem – Day 1.

Here I am on Day 39 ….

Hello friends

I hope you are enjoying the day and all is good in your neighborhood.  I still haven’t decided as to where we will be going to see fireworks.  We will either go to Wilmington and see Macy Gray, or downtown Middletown or maybe just stay home and watch WaWa Welcome America featuring Kevin Hart, The Roots, Ne-Yo, Jill Scott, and others.

  Where do you go to see 4th of July fireworks?

Hello Friends and Happy Hump Day Wednesday!

I’ve been MIA due to a snafu with GoDaddy for Web Hosting and the transferring of my domain – things just didn’t go well so I’m back!  Today is the end of the work week for me because tomorrow is the HOLIDAY – YAY and we are closed on Friday.

What are your plans for Independence Day?  I haven’t made any yet because of the weather, it has been raining since Sunday.  I hope the sun will make an appearance at least one day this weekend so I can  fire up the grill and lounge poolside.

Tuesday’s outfit was totally thrifted from GW Boutique.

Are you a Winer – do you like trying new Wines – if so, I want your Wine Winning recipes!

I am not a wine connoisseur nor do I don’t spend a lot for a bottle of wine.  I am a sucker for a deal and love fun colorful bottles, and this is where I shop on FriYays after work.
