Hello Friends and Happy Fri-Yay!

This is the last full week of April, can you believe that this time next week it will be May 3rd and Memorial Day will be on the calendar?  So many things happened this week, some of them good others not so much but I shall not dwell on the negative.  Life is so unpredictable, one day everything is “Peachy Keen” and then next your world is turned upside down.  I believe that all of us, at one point in our lives has wanted something that someone else had, whether is was as a child or an adult,  as a sibling, a parent or friend,  and then we realize that “the grass isn’t always greener on the other side”.

Has that ever happened to you?

Last evening, hubby and I attended a”Green Tie Friendraiser at The Chase Center on the Riverfront hosted by The Delaware Financial Literacy Institute.  It was wonderful event for a worthy cause and I will provide more details in a separate post.  During the evening we met some great people and had a chance to unwind and mingle after a long day at work.  I was also presented with a fantastic opportunity which I will reveal later once I get more information.

Hello Friends and Happy Tuesday

Do you remember Bill Withers’ 1977, hit song, Lovely Day?  Not all of the words in this song exactly describes my day but it definitely was a LOVELY DAY!  I took a day off from work so that my son could drop off his car and have it checked and then get to the orthodontist and dentist for treatments.  It was such a lovely day, not only because of the weather but because I got a chance to spend it with my oldest son.  Mothers with teenage and young adult sons know how difficult it can be to get them to spend time with you without complaint, so I took full advantage of it!

We started the day at Delaware Orthodontics in Middletown, this NASCAR-themed office is such a great place for kids of all ages, with video games and a flat screen TV to keep you occupied while in the waiting room.

After leaving the dentist office we stopped at Rugged Wearhouse where I found these pink, Gingham pumps on clearance for $5.00!

For lunch we went to Mickey D’s so I could try the new McWrap that I’ve heard so much about, it wasn’t bad for a fast food sandwich.  I had coupons so it was only $1.00, and Tayair was able to get a Buy 1 Get 1 FREE BigMac sandwich.

It definitely was a lovely day!

Hello Friends and Happy Fri-Yay!

TGIF, this week has been such an emotional roller coaster that I am looking forward to just kicking back, relaxing and reflecting on our many blessings.  I am also looking forward to cleaning out the bottom of my closet and under the beds.  Spring is officially here so now it’s time to put away the winter shoes and boots and bring out the sandals.  I stopped at Target yesterday to pick up a few groceries and of course made a quick detour through the shoe department.  No shoe haul this time but my little eyes did spy several pairs of shoes on clearance that are on my wish list.  I also checked out the the Kate Young Collection, this celebrity stylist’s glam collection includes  jewelry, handbags and shoes ranging in prices  from $15.00 to $90.00.

The only pair that I added to wish list were these yellow cork sandals on sale for $24.99

Hello Friends, I hope you had a great weekend and an enjoyable tax-free Monday!

I woke up this morning thinking it was Sunday.  The weekend came and went with such quickness that I though we should have had one more day free from work, but no such luck!  We did manage to get some yard work done before the heat returns because it is not fun pulling weeds and trimming trees in intense heat.  I love this time of year with all the flora blooming but it reeks havoc on my son and his seasonal allergies.  This was my grandmother’s favorite tree and every Spring she’d look outside and say, “Toni, did you take a picture of that tree” – I do miss her so!

Mama, here’s a picture of that tree.

These trees are on the side of the house, they bloom then change green in about 2 weeks.

I didn’t wear them to work because my knee is still swollen, but thought they would work with this outfit – what do you think?

Hello Friends and Happy Tax Day 2013!

I hope you have completed and submitted your taxes and maybe got a refund.  Ours were completed last week and thanks in part to the numerous Goodwill donations throughout the year we got a little tax break.

As much as much I love donating to GW Boutiques, thrifting there is much more enjoyable.  Last Sunday I went to Goodwill in Middletown, which by the way has been reorganized and looks great.  I thrifted a skirt, 2 tops and a pair of new floral jeans for $20.25, and submitted these photos for their Macklemore “Pop The Tag” contest.

Then on Thursday I went to GW Boutique on Concord Pike and thrifted these tops and skirts for $3.75 each and a Kate Spade purse for $4.00.  I’m going to assume it’s a designer-inspired purse and if you know how I can determine that, please let me know.

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 April Fool’s Day

This was the last day of my mini vacation and I couldn’t have asked for a nicer day.  I was able to turn off the heat, open the windows and enjoy warm sunshine with a light breeze.
