Hello Friends and Happy Friday Eve!

The weather is warming up nicely despite yesterday’s hail storm, yes, it hailed in Middletown, Delaware. I hadn’t reached town yet therefore, I missed it but my girlfriend posted a pic on Facebook (LIKE me) and it was awesome, actual golf ball size hail in May – this global warming ain’t no joke!

I am getting a little impatient with the weather and am no longer waiting to go sleeveless or wear sandals as evidenced by today’s outfit. I added a little pop of color to the black and white with a coral watch and ring. The brass statement necklace with matching earrings I’ve had for over 25 years and paired them with a hammered brass bangle bracelet.

Saturday my oldest son had an appointment at Simon Eye Associates in Middletown.  We are a family of four with three of us wearing prescription glasses, so the out-of-pocket cost can easily exceed $100 even with insurance co-pays.  I personally prefer stylish eye wear because wearing glasses is more than a necessity, it’s an accessory and “I go big or I go home”.

 In the ’80’s, my sister started wearing glasses and she too preferred large frames which was also the style during that time -aka- Sally Jesse Raphael, which may be why I like them as well.

Unfortunately, my first prescription pair were the narrow, rectangular style and they gave me a headache, I could never place my eyes in the correct area of the frame and it was annoying.  They cost me $300 out of pocket and I swore never to spend that much money again!  In my family the only one who doesn’t wear glasses is Tayair which is strange because he was a 3 month preemie weighing only 2.5 lbs.  Most preemies have a need for corrective eye wear especially during their early years, but this hasn’t been the case for him.

I was recently contacted by GlassesUSA to do a sponsored post and I didn’t hesitate because I am always looking for ways to save money.  GlassesUSA is the premier place to buy discount prescription eyeglasses and sunglasses.  The request coincided with Tayair’s appointment so it was a perfect time to check them out.  I looked through the large selection of eyeglasses at Simon Eye Associates so I could chose the same style from GlassesUSA.

Hello Friends and Happy Friday Eve!

Why do we use the phrase, “smile, say cheese” when taking pictures…”CHEESE” really, isn’t there another word in the English language that makes you wanna smile?

#1 son is my photographer and all he does is point and shoot, he never tells me to say “cheese” or “smile or even “hold in your stomach” (which is obvious in these pics), so this morning I decided not to smile and this is what we got.

Hello Friends and Happy Tuesday!

It has finally happened, Winter is officially over and based upon the temps for the next few days so is Spring!  If you live in the MidAtlantic area you know that we went from the cold-in-the-low 50’s on Saturday to the hot-in-the-mid 80’s today, all I can say is “bring it on”!  I love the warmer temps, not intense heat but warm enough to wear only one layer of clothing and a wrap dress is perfect.  If you follow me on Instagram you know that I twisted my knee doing Zumba and haven’t been able to wear heels, needless to say, I’m not happy.  I did pose in them this morning but had to go straight to the flats to lessen the pain.

What’s the weather like in your neck of the woods?

Hello friends and happy Saturday, “Shop Small Business Saturday” which is a wonderful event to promote and support local businesses during the holiday season. Before shopping locally in Middletown I had to pick up my new glasses from Halpern Eye Care and was excited to get them. When I went in for my annual appointment I spent well over an hour trying on different frames to find just the right ones and I think this time I did! I chose a sunglasses frame by the Guess brand and they fit my face just as I wanted them too. It didn’t hurt that the case is a leopard print although it’s large and bulky.

The winter weather is knocking on the back door so I had to break out the bin of sweaters, this one belonged to my sister and is one of my favorites. I love these fingerless gloves which were purchased several years ago from Kmart. Jeans and purse were thrifted from GW Boutique (Goodwill), scarf purchased from “The Bag Lady” Home Purse Party, boots are closet staples, earrings from Rugged Wearhouse and XOXO Sunnies were won in a Penny Chic contest.

I hope you have a fantabulous evening – Smooches!

This was the 1st year that we didn’t pile into the car to go see the annual 4th of July Fireworks in Middletown.  We usually leave home at dusk to drive to Friendly’s where we parked, ate ice cream and oooh and aaahed at the sky being lit up by fireworks a few miles away.  There were 2 reasons for not going this year, the most important one being that Friendly’s caught fire the week before and burned to the ground and secondly, we just didn’t feel like going, we’ve seen enough fireworks at Disney to last a lifetime.

However,  in keeping with some traditions Tayair and I wore  RED, WHITE  &  BLUE, and Malik wore a T-Shirt in memory of Andre Smith the HS Football Player killed in a car accident over Spring Break.  I did watch some of the Macy’s fireworks on TV and oooh and aaah at their sky being lit up without having to fight traffic to get home.

RIP Andre Smith
