Are you a WALDO?

Do you have a White After Labor Day Outfit?

*

Growing up I used to hear people say that you should never ever wear white after Labor Day. Growing up we didn’t have many clothes so I probably didn’t have enough white outfits to wear the entire summer let alone carry over past Labor Day.

*

Now the older I get the quicker the seasons seem to change and the larger my wardrobe grows. I don’t know about you, but I never get a chance to wear all of my summer outfits in the summer months. Labor Day is the unofficial end of summer, but September 21st is the actual date so I will continue to wear white until then and maybe perhaps even into Fall.

Hello Friends and Happy Friday Eve!

Can you believe that next week it will be Labor Day, the unofficial end of Summer – where did August go? I don’t know about you but I don’t rush to put away my summer clothes and break out the Autumn gear.  I like to leisurely linger into Indian Summer by continuing to wear white jeans and sundresses.

Last year I did a few Labor Day DIY’s one of which was upcycling a Sundress into a Maxi Skirt, you can read that post HERE.  Today I am wearing that Maxi Skirt with a mustard-color blouse thrifted from GW Boutique (Goodwill) and Wedge Sandals from Target.

Hello Friends and Happy Fri-Yay!

Wow, what a whirlwind week…why is it that in the winter months time drags and moves slowly but when it’s summer it speeds by like a freight train on steroids?

In 2 days we’ll be celebrating 23 years of marriage, and yes, that too seems like it flew by.  There were times when we experienced “winter months” and time lagged, but with the grace of God, we are now in our “summer” months – like a freight train on steroids – lol!

If you are like me, you are still grilling outdoors and this may be an early start for an indoor Crockpot meal, but I wanted to try the Campbell’sSlow Cooker Sauce.

Ingredients:

  • Campbell’s Slow Cooker Sauce – Sweet Korean BBQ w Roasted Ginger & Sesame
  • Jasmine Rice – Dellarice.com
  • Beef – 2-3 lbs
  • Slow Cooker/Crock Pot

The beef was placed in the Crock Pot, did not use cooking spray nor add any water

My sons love tacos and burritos so I made these for them.

There are 3 other Campbell’s Slow Cooker Sauces that I’ll try, and this Korean BBQ was just the right blend.  It wasn’t too salty which would have been a turn off for me.

Do you use the Slow Cooker in the summer?

Hello Friends and Happy Tuesday!

Summer is is flying by so quickly can you believe tomorrow is the last day of July!

This outfit which I wore last Friday was totally thrifted from GW Boutique and was very comfortable for the weather.  Last week there were several temperature fluctuations that ended with a torrential rain storm on Sunday.  Motorist returning from the beach and shore were stranded on major highways for hours.  This week we are in store for beautiful, low humidity days perfect for anyone taking a late vacation to the beach.

Hello Friends and Happy Fri-Yay!

Here we go again…another summer weekend, will it be hot and dry or cool and rainy?  Last Saturday was a perfect day and I had plans of lounging poolside all afternoon, but sometimes pool maintenance can change the best laid plans.  I often dream of having a “Pool Boy”, someone to keep the chemicals balanced, remove the debris and skim the leaves…someone too…HOLD ON…wait a minute!pool boy

 Hubby wouldn’t like that very much and I would probably end up getting someone like Nick Cannon in “Love Don’t Cost A Thing!”pool boy2

We’ve had our pool for about 18 years and there is always maintenance involved some more intense than others like the replacement of tiles.  These fell off a few years ago and it took me too many hours on Saturday to replace them.

I stopped at Leslie’s Pool Supplies and purchased Patch It, it wasn’t hard to make the putty but like that scene from The Cosby Show, I’d seal one tile and another would fall off – it was frustrating to say the least.

After several hours of this I gave up but only after using the entire bucket!

Of course then I had to vacuum out the residue and skim the leaves!

After all that, I was finally able to sit back and relax for a whole 2 hours!!

So if you happen to be in the neighborhood – stop by & bring a cold one…AND a Pool Boy!

Hello Friends – do you want to make the 1st Monday of the summer better?

Then do what I do, think of  your favorite summer songs, you know the ones that you just have to hear every year no matter how old it is…the ones you only listen to when it’s hot outside or when you’re on vacation?

Okay, now download, stream or pull them up on Pandora, turn up the volume, then sing along loudly in your office or cubicle – sike…don’t get fired…or carted off to Bellevue,  just sing quietly and chair dance!

This is the list with link to my six favorite summer songs.

Sundress – C.o.C.o Brown & The Phat Cat Players

Summertime – Will Smith

Under The Boardwalk – The Drifters

Celebration – Kool & The Gang

Hot Hot Hot – Buster Poindexter

Heatwave – Martha & The Vandellas

Summer songs and summer wear seem to go hand-in hand, hence my #1 jam, so when it’s hot all day everyday, I prefer a sundress.  This is one of my favorites thrifted from GW Boutique.
