Fashion and Fun after Fifty

Hello Friends and Happy Saturday, I hope you are having a pleasant day.

I was up early this morning after a late night of house cleaning but it felt good to wake up without chores and the ability to have a leisurely breakfast with my men.  I do however, need to get into my closet to remove the avalanche of clothes currently on the floor.  Today’s outfit is a pair of jeans that were altered to give it a Boho look, which was a DIY project that was posted here in March.

Hello Friends and Happy Saturday, I hope you had an enjoyable day.

I am sitting at the kitchen table sipping Ginger tea trying to accept the fact that son #2 is no longer my baby.  He and I had planned to go to Best Buy to purchase Dragon Speak software and an external DVD drive for his Notebook.  I asked him to take a few shots before leaving and as he reluctantly did, he informed me that we had to be home by 4:00 because his “girlfriend” was coming over.  “Girlfriend…girlfriend…did he say girlfriend?”

I was all smiles as he hadn’t told me yet

January 2013 015Huh, what did he just say?

Don’t get me wrong, he is 16 and has had crushes on girls before but this was going to be the first time I was actually going to meet “his girlfriend”, the first time a girl was coming to the house.  I know…I know…but I’m gonna need something stronger than this tea!

Hello friends and Happy Saturday – December 1st – wow where did November go?  Today was a beautiful, warm and sunny day made even brighter with a visit from my girlfriend Weyata and her pretty little ladies – Ashleigh, Rochelle, Hannah and Maggie.  It had been such a long time since I last saw my twin “nieces”, Ashleigh and Rochelle, I couldn’t get over how big they had gotten.  I still remember getting the call from Weyata at 2 in the morning to get to the hospital for their birth, they are now two lovely young ladies.  They also have two more sisters Hannah who is a hoot, with a big personality and Maggie, who definitely is the “baby of the bunch” and makes sure everyone knows it.

My household chores were done before they arrived so after they left I had time to get to the nail salon.

Hello friends and Happy Saturday, I hope you had a great day and are winding down to a relaxing evening. I finally broke my “thrifting fast” and went to Goodwill in Dover and Smyrna in search of a few blouses and skirts. On the top of my list were a white blouse, a houndstooth skirt and anything colored oxblood – JACKPOT I found them all and then some!

I love these shopping baskets on wheels at the Goodwill in Dover, the store where my sister last worked and I could only smile thinking about her. RIP Gloria!

My next post will feature the items thrifted from Goodwill in Smyrna.

Have a fantabulous evening – Smooches!

Hello friends and Happy Sunday. Today is a lazy-do-nothing-but relax day because it’s cold and rainy. I did wash the kitchen floor which has been on my to-do list for over a month. The weekend is over but tomorrow schools are closed as well as many businesses however, I will be working.

Saturday was a successful day, I made $85.00, selling at Dutch Country Farmers Flea Market. Sold clothing, shoes, household items and Halloween decorations from $1.00 to $5.00. The sons helped me set up and stayed the entire time. I donated to Goodwill several boxes of summer clothing and decorations that did not sell. The weather started out cool but warmed up nicely and the people were friendly so overall it was a good day.

Once home I had to get ready to go to Dover to meet my cousins for dinner. They had arrived earlier on a bus trip from New Rochelle to Dover Downs. I am not a big slots player and didn’t want to lose the $85.00, so only played 3 slot machines and lost $15.00. My cousins broke even and we went to dinner at Olive Garden. I love the cold salads and warm bread and did not overdo it with the pasta. Just as my day started, it ended equally well because I was home before 8:00 and my cousin called at midnight she was at work, I wish I had half her energy!
