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.

Are you ready for the cooler weather of Autumn or are you like me and love the heat of the Summer?

Today I am linking up with Katherines Corner, come on over and congratulate her on reaching 10,000 followers – woohoo!

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.

Check out the Dollar Tree Dome that I bought yesterday, and with all the rolls of ribbon I have in stock I can make this puppy match almost every outfit in my wardrobe!

A perfect way to end the work week, it’s nice when peers take the time to say they appreciate you and the work that you do.

Do you take time to show or tell co-workers that you appreciate them?

Around the water cooler this afternoon with 3lilapples – come on over and met a new blogger.

I appreciate you and hope you have a fantabulous weekend – Smooches!

Hello Friends and Happy Friday Eve!

Today was a fantastic day, this morning it was sunny with temps in the high 80’s and I was on vacation hanging with my oldest son.  There were a few things that we needed to get done including him renewing his driver’s license.  I can’t believe it’s been 4 years already and next month he’ll be celebrating his 21st birthday – God is Good!

All that closet cleaning Saturday and I could not find one pair of decent shorts…oh well, time to hit up GW Boutique this weekend!  I decided to wear an old pair of capris instead of a sundress and found them to be just as comfortable.

After a doc appointment I stopped in at Rugged Wearhouse and saw some of the cutest purses, but resisted the urge to make a purchase!  It was a good vacation day in May.

I hope everyone had a fan-tab-u-lous weekend.  Ours was uneventful and restful so now I am fully charged to begin a new work week.  Last night we finally got some much needed rain and today the Lord has blessed up with a bright and sunny Monday!

Happy 1st Day of Summer 2012!!

With an overly warm winter and a very rainy spring it’s only natural that summer is barreling in with excessive heat. We have been given excessive heat warnings for today and Thursday with temps expecting to reach the high 90’s but feel like 100 degrees. This morning at 6:00 the readings were above 70. Stay cool, hydrated and safe!

Summertime fun in the sun calls for good music and these are my favorites – click on the links to see YouTube video. What are some of your favorite summer songs?

There are numerous published safety tips on how to stay cool during the excessive heat and I am definitely adhering to the one about dressing lightly.

Sundress was purchased on clearance last season at Burlington Coat Factory

After work I will be hitting the pool!
