Happy Fri-Yay!

Finally the end of an exhausting week, so ready to sit back, relax, and have a glass (or two) of wine.  Enjoy your weekend, be safe, stay blessed and tell someone “I Love You!”

Have a fantastical weekend – Smooches!

TVOne just ended it’s first season of their new sitcom, Belle’s starring veteran actors Ella Joyce, Keith David and  Miguel Nunez as well as Elise Neil and newly minted reality actress and home girl (money earning Mt. Vernon) Tami Roman.  The show is narrated by 12 year old Nadka Alaya as Pam in a role similar to Aaron Meeks as Ahmad in Soul Food.   However, unlike Soul Food, this is light comedy, not forced comedy like Roc or The Hughley’s or extreme unreality like Basketball Wives, light comedy similar to Sparks.

As a “fifty something”  wife and mother, I enjoyed this show for several reasons: the time, 10 pm on Friday…end of the work week…after dinner…after hubby and sons have gone to their rooms…after weekly home pedicure…and after the 4th glass of Red Wine has kicked in. Light comedy with an excellent cast of characters that appear to work well together, great guest appearances like Wendy Williams and Gary Dourdan, a show that I hope remains on the air for a long time.

Thank you, TVOne for bringing family programming that I truly enjoy!

Hello Friends, I hope your Friday night is winding down and you are fine as wine…cheers…clink!

I was cleaning out my DIY supply drawer and found a roll of Zebra Print duct tape that was purchased from Dollar General and decided to do a quick project.

I covered a bracelet to wear with my Mossimo flats from Target.

Time for another glass of wine!

Have a good night – Smooches!

Hello Friends and Happy Fri-Yay Fri-Yay Fri-Yay

After a long restless night due to a toothache I awoke to this gift from God!

This is the calm before the storm as Winter is definitely in full force, with snow scheduled to begin falling around 3 p.m.  The roads have been brined to cut down on commuter accidents because the temps are also going to drop even lower into the single digits.

As you can see, I am fully prepared and hopefully will leave early enough to stop and pick up a bottle of wine (for me) and Chinese take-out for my men. My plans are to be indoors snug-as-a-bug-in-the-rug until at least Sunday.

These Paisley Skinny Jeans and Infinity Scarf were both on clearance at Target and men’s sweater was thrifted from GW Boutique (Goodwill). The boots have been in my closet for several years and most likely were purchased from Payless.

Believe it or not, this faux fur vest once was a coat that I DIY’d because it didn’t fit properly. I shorten the length using the excess for a scarf, removed the sleeves and made a pair of leg warmers.

Do you refashion clothing, if so, what have you done and how did it work out?

Have a fantabulous afternoon – Smooches!

On Saturday night I rode with my girlfriend downstate to Lewes, DE, she is an Independent Consultant for Passion Parties and had been booked for a 7:00 show.  I had previously attended a party she hosted but this was my first time attending as a non-guest, so I sat in the back and observed.  Most of the ladies all in their early 20’s had never attended a Passion Party and it was hilarious watching their reactions to some of the products.  The hostess had chosen a Hawaiian Theme for the show and had decorated with leis, beach towels, sea shells and served fresh fruits as well as a variety of libations including Jello Shots.  I am not familiar with them so I didn’t know what they contained, however, I do know it was alcohol.  As the night wore on and thanks to the shots and other beverages their laughter increased and intensified.  The ladies were grad students newly married or in long term relationships and all lived in the development so they would walk home safely (Drink Responsibly).

Shawn did an excellent job in keeping them focused throughout her presentation which became a bit more challenging after several Jello Shot toasts.  Overall they had a great “Girls Night In” and the hostess thanked Shawn for what turned out to be a successful party!
