Fashion and Fun after Fifty

Hello Friends and Happy Tuesday

If you are fortunate enough to have an extra day off, I hope you are enjoying it, but if like me you are back to work, I hope you are also enjoying it – at least it’s quiet.  Not only is it quiet, but it is raining and dreary unlike the sunshine and warmth of the weekend, it would have been a perfect day to sleep in!

I spent the majority of Saturday, 9 hours to be exact, in my closets sorting through items that I haven’t worn or no longer fit and I still have too many clothes!  I will be sending boxes to my girlfriend for her daughters as well as donating to Goodwill.

I am wearing two kloset keepers because first of all I love skirts and secondly, the side embellishments on this top is unique.

Hello Friends and Happy Hump Day Wednesday

Today we officially open the pool for the season and despite the cold temps, Pool Care Specialist will be onsite to reassemble the parts and add the necessary chemicals.  Every year I think about  purchasing a better pool cover so that the water won’t be too dirty when opened in the Spring.  It’s been over 10 years and I still haven’t gotten it but thanks to the mild winter it doesn’t look too bad and by Memorial Day weekend it will be sparkling clear.

We definitely will be getting a new Solar Cover because there is nothing worse than jumping into cold water!

This February marks the 10th year of the American Heart Association’s Go Red For Women® movement.

Despite a lot of progress, there’s still a long way to go, because heart disease continues to be the No. 1 killer of women, taking more lives than all kinds of cancer combined.

Show your support by joining a challenge and sharing it with friends and adding your voice to the Go Red movement. Together, we can end heart disease.

Hello Friends and Happy Friday Eve!

Can you believe it’s the last Thursday of the month, tomorrow is the first day of February. February 1st is also my “baby boy’s” Birthday and he will be 17 – somebody is getting old and it isn’t me!!!!
February, 1996, two days after he was born we were hit with a major snow storm that kept us house bound for almost a month. I hope that doesn’t happen again, the storm of 2010 was more than enough to last a lifetime – remember that one?

No snow storms in the forecast, just bright sunshine and high winds, but not like what tore through some southern states last night – we are truly blessed!

These blue suede booties are different than the one’s featured here.  They were purchased last year from The Shoe Dept, and also came in red which I didn’t get – wish I had because it would have saved me from going to the mall today.  By the way, have you been to JC Penney’s lately?  If not, GO, they have $1 ~ $3 ~ $5 and $10 clearance racks, I got a red skirt and a pair of capris for $5 each!  Their new “one price no sales” marketing campaign didn’t work out so well, and now they are restructuring, so head over for some great bargains.  The “housewives of Exton” were racking up on kids clothes on clearance for a dollar which are better deals than Goodwill!

Hello Friends and Happy Hump Day Wednesday.  This morning I had an hour long conversation with a cousin that I met only once, 12 years ago at my father’s funeral.  We talked and laughed as if we had spoken just last week.  Our conversation was enjoyable and we both learned a little more about each other and our families.  These days it seems as though personal letter writing or conversing on a LAN line has been replaced with texting, instant messaging, tweeting or facebooking.  We need to connect on a more personal level with family and friends especially as time marches on and our lives shorten.  Today I vow to call her more often as well as having live conversations with other family members and friends.

Today this morning it was brisk, bright and cloudless, eerily similar to the morning of 9.11.01

RIP to all those who were tragically lost on that day – our Angels forever

Day 2 of skirt week is completely thrift-free which for me is a feat!  In June, I purchased this Valerie Bertinelli skirt  (worn here) at Marshalls, I didn’t want to pay full price but I also didn’t want to wait for it to be marked down.  The top was either purchased at Marshalls, TJ Maxx or Ross, as they all have similar clothing items.

Wishing you a wonderful evening.

Today was the first day of school for al-Malik and needless to say, he was not excited about boarding that bus this morning….kept whining something about wanting a car….in his dreams and my nightmares!!!  Time sure does fly, after today I only have 1 more chance to get that “first day of school” picture, then he’s off to college!!!  Where does the time go…I miss my babies 😦

Hubby started back to school yesterday, he’s a Student Advisor in a Middle School.  When I got home and asked how his day was, he was like…”oooh you know how it hard it is going back….” NOPE…cause I don’t get 3 months off in the summer buddy!!!!  I have a house of whiners!!!!
