Fashion and Fun after Fifty

Hello Friends and Happy Fri-Yay!

What are your plans for the weekend?  As with most of the MidAtlantic area we have had rain and overcast skies all week and it’s supposed to be the same tomorrow and Sunday so there will be no pool lounging.  I will however, be lounging around the house, doing a few chores and working on my blog, and maybe take a few naps in between.

Today’s casual Friday outfit is “faux lace” floral jeans from Rugged Wearhouse and a simple cinched waist Faded Glory top from Walmart.

Hello Friends and Happy Fri-Yay!

Last week while watching television a new commercial for Cheerios came on and it immediately caught my attention.  The cute little girl was obviously “mixed” or biracial, cute as a button with corkscrew curls, talking to her mother, who is Caucasian.  She’s just checking to see if what her dad said was true, that Cheerios were good for the heart.  Once mom verifies that Cheerios are Heart Healthy she quickly runs out of the kitchen.

The next scene is that of her African American father napping on the sofa, waking up with a chest full of Cheerios.  This heart-healthy, family commercial is cute…right?

To some people “no” it’s not, I guess to them having 1 biracial person featured on television is enough – sorry little Cheerios girl the President filled the quota.

Watch the video and tell me what you think.

Hello Friends and Happy Saturday

I hope you were treated to a beautiful Spring day with flowers in bloom and birds chirping their early Easter greetings.

Hubby and I spent the day together which is a rarity because he’s usually visiting his mother in Wilmington. Next week is Spring Break so he’ll have more time to spend with her and today it was just the two of us. Unfortunately it was wasn’t a date or even romantic, we just went shopping at Lowe’s for a new kitchen sink faucet to replace the one that has been leaking for months – wasting both water and money.

Next we went to car dealerships in Newark and Wilmington checking out Certified Pre-Owned Hondas. It’s the last sales day of the month as well as the end of the quarter so they were extremely busy.

Finding nothing in our price range we ended our day at L&G Soul Food Southern Cuisine for dinner. We ordered platters for us as well as the boys and once home we all enjoyed fried Whiting, collard greens, mac n cheese, string beans, coleslaw and corn bread …needless to say, “itis” kicked in shortly afterwards but it was too late for a nap.
