Fashion and Fun after Fifty

Posts Tagged ‘Philadelphia

The Java House Café in Middletown recently hosted two books signings for local authors.  The first one was on Saturday with Richelle N. Rodgers, author of Forever Growing A Journey of Trust.  This autobiography gives you insight into her life which is filled with joy and sadness as well as near death experiences by both she and her husband, but her strong faith and trust in God has given her more than the world has taken.

Richelle is Philadelphia native presently residing in Elkton, Maryland with her husband of 38 years and is a grandmother of triplets.  Her passion for empowering others to be the best they can be in their relationship with God is prevalent throughout the book.  As a Franchise Consultant in both the Museum and Insurance industries as well as an Independent Contractor for CCI, she has had the opportunity to travel outside of the United States including trips to Bosnia and Italy.  Richelle is currently a Lay Prayer Associate and an Eucharistic Minister and Lector at her church.

Richelle has dedicated her life in helping others and as a Vietnam Vet is currently working on a Women Veteran Leadership Awards Symposium to be held in DC this fall.

The book is also available as an eReader at both www.amazon.com and www.barnesandnoble and a schedule of book signings can be found at www.richellerodgers.com.

It took 3 years of prayer and the encouragement from family and friends for this book to become the first in what I believe will be a successful career of an Inspirational author.

 “Trust in the Lord with all your heart.” – Proverbs 3:5

Hello Friends and Happy Saturday

This was my casual First Friday attire – Polka Dots, Pink Suede and “Pearls”.  The pink glitter earrings were gifted last year from a jewelry company, SweetLikeCake.com however, I could no longer find them online.

I hope you have a good day, I’m off to do my Saturday chores and looking forward to watching Saturday Night Live tonight, Kevin Hart is hosting and it’s going to be HILARIOUS!!!  They should have booked Robin Thicke as the musical guest with surprise appearances by JB SmoothBoris Kodjoe and Nick Cannon – it would be a Real Husbands of Hollywood special.

No makeup, heels or jewelry, only shorts/tanks, sandals and a bathing suit for 5 wonderful, sun-filled days. Whether it’s called a VACATION or STAYCATION, living “the Life of Riley” is a beautiful thing. Sleeping in late; eating breakfast on the back deck; poolside lounging; laughing with and loving family and friends was the perfect way to spend the long July 4th Holiday. It was also the first time that we did not go out to watch fireworks, I did however, watch Wawa Welcome America and loved Lauryn Hill’s surprise performance. I was also able to watch more of the Twilight Zone Marathon, “Time Enough At Last” with Burgess Meredith is my favorite episode! I did do a little yard work and paid the price with my annual case of poison ivy – oh how I hate the itch!!!

I hope that everyone had a wonderful holiday weekend and now it’s back to reality!

No offense to @PennyChic but this prize is much better than the XOXO Sunglasses that I won two weeks ago!!!! The amazing thing is, this is the most I’ve ever won at any given time in my entire life – I better play Powerball this month too!

I started watching Eye Opener on Phl17 about a month ago because it was enjoyable news – an oxymoron, but true. I often wondered if I was too “old” to be watching Marlie Hall, Sean, Danielle, Oliver and Nerissa in the morning as opposed to the anchors on NBC10 and The Today Show, but after seeing Larry Mendte and Rose, I knew I wasn’t because they are older than me – sorry guys! It is refreshing to watch a news program that not only provides the latest local and national news and weather but also info on beauty, fashion, food, drinks of the day, car insurance, techie news, Hollywood fluff, and other good stuff. It has become a family affair with my youngest son watching before he leaves for school and my oldest watching as I leave for work. My morning commute is an hour and a 1/2 of non-stop traffic so the last thing I need is to be in the car in a bad mood, but thanks to Eye Opener that never happens.

I was told that over 3000 people entered last week’s contest so I feel blessed to have been chosen a winner. Every day for a week, right before breakfast when the “word of the day” was given, I would write it down on a post-it note and put in my eyeglass case so that I wouldn’t forget to enter it online – an old lady move that paid off!

Thanks Phl17-TV EyeOpener!!!
