Hello Friends and Happy Friday Eve!

On Sunday hubby and I celebrated our 23rd Wedding Anniversary and had dinner at our favorite restaurant, Chesapeake Inn and Marina.  This lovely restaurant is located in Chesapeake City, Maryland on the waterfront and overlooks the C&D Canal.  We have enjoyed having our Anniversary dinner here for years not only because of it’s location which is only 10 mins from the house, but because it has the best seafood and the atmosphere is enjoyable.

Before leaving for the evening our son took a few pictures of us on the back deck.

Hello Friends and Happy Monday!

I hope you had a wonderful weekend, the weather was simply gorgeous in Delaware despite a few intermittent rain drops.  Saturday I spent most of the morning in my son’s closet gathering clothes to be donated to the Cancer Federation. He doesn’t outgrow his clothes as quickly as his younger brother, but I was able to find enough to fill two large bags.

Saturday evening hubby and I attended a celebration in honor of his friend’s 60th birthday. Hollywood is a long time friend and is the lead singer of Hollywood And The Final Kutt Band.  They have played all over Delaware and can be seen next at the World Cafe Live in Wilmington on September 5th.

He and his wife live in a lovely row home in Wilmington where they have created a mini outdoor sanctuary filled with plants, a fish pond, cats, dogs and birds.

Hello Friends and Happy Tuesday

Do you remember Bill Withers’ 1977, hit song, Lovely Day?  Not all of the words in this song exactly describes my day but it definitely was a LOVELY DAY!  I took a day off from work so that my son could drop off his car and have it checked and then get to the orthodontist and dentist for treatments.  It was such a lovely day, not only because of the weather but because I got a chance to spend it with my oldest son.  Mothers with teenage and young adult sons know how difficult it can be to get them to spend time with you without complaint, so I took full advantage of it!

We started the day at Delaware Orthodontics in Middletown, this NASCAR-themed office is such a great place for kids of all ages, with video games and a flat screen TV to keep you occupied while in the waiting room.

After leaving the dentist office we stopped at Rugged Wearhouse where I found these pink, Gingham pumps on clearance for $5.00!

For lunch we went to Mickey D’s so I could try the new McWrap that I’ve heard so much about, it wasn’t bad for a fast food sandwich.  I had coupons so it was only $1.00, and Tayair was able to get a Buy 1 Get 1 FREE BigMac sandwich.

It definitely was a lovely day!

Hello Friends and Happy Monday

I hope you all had a good weekend, mine was nice and it started with a Transformation Bonfire at church Friday night, where we all witnessed a Meteorite.  I had just put away my iPad after taking pictures of the bonfire so didn’t get a chance to capture it, did you see it?  We were outside in the cold so the songs, prayers and Sermonette was short, and it ended with an unburdening. We were encouraged to write down anything that we wanted to be released from and then cast it into the fire.  Only hours before I was informed that my Aunt has passed, she had been suffering with emphysema for years and God finally released her from her pain and suffering – RIP Aunt Myrtle.

We woke up this morning to a Wonderful Winter Wonderland…Spring will just have to wait a little longer.  Although it is very pretty to look at it wasn’t so pretty to drive in, it took 2 hours to get to work and it’s still snowing so it will be a long commute home.

Today’s outfit had to be changed from a skirt and blouse to pants and top for a casual and comfortable Monday.

Hello Friends and Happy 1st Day of the New Year 2013.

Last night I stayed up until 3:00 am watching The Twilight Zone Marathon so today slept in until noon. I love the first day of the year because it’s perfect for laying back and relaxing.  I purchased a Foot Bath from Walmart last week, it was half price and something that I really needed. To the warm water I added Lavender Epson Salt purchased from Dollar Tree and a few drops of aromatherapy oil which made it even more relaxing.

Instead of polishing my nails, I chose to use Sally Hansen Salon effects Polish Strips. The pattern is “Skinny Jeans” and was on clearance at Walgreens for $2.49. I have tried other brands but have found Salon Effects to be the easiest to install and lasts the longest.
