Thank You and 2013 Blog Award Nominations

Hello Friends and Happy New Year’s Eve!

As we close out the year 2013, I would like to take this time to say, “Thank You” to all my wonderful bloggy friends and followers.

blog

A Blog is defined as:

  1. “a personal website or web page on which an individual records opinions, links to other sites, etc. on a regular basis.”

Yet it is so much more, a blog becomes part of you, a special part of your life an extension of your personality.  If done in the right spirit it can fill you with added joy and happiness.

Each of you in your own unique way has definitely added more joy and happiness to my life.  When you take the time to read and comment on my posts, write your own uplifting and informational posts – take beautiful photographs and fashionable attire, you open your home and hearts to others…and all of this makes my life brighter.

Thank you D-Anna at Style Salvation, a fashionista diva for nominating me for a “Best Moment” award and thank you Clouds n Cups, jewelry designers extraordinaire for the “Blog of The Year 2013” award nomination!

Turn Back Time Thursday

Hello Friends and Happy Friday Eve!

Yesterday I was reviewing some old posts from 2012, and saw this OOTD post dated July 25th, then realized that I wore the same skirt on Tuesday July 9th of this year.  I guess it will now become my go-to skirt for July, at least I wore a different top but not sure which look I like better.

Father's Day 2013

Hello Friends, I hope everyone had a nice Father’s Day weekend!

Father's Day 2013 003

Hubby had a nice one even with a change in dinner plans, but I was able to pull off what I think was a better meal than what we would have had at a restaurant.  Yesterday he played a little one-on-one with Malik and fortunately, no injuries were sustained!

Father’s Day Dinner was baked Salmon, Spinach Shrimp Salad and Dill Potato Salad. Daddy’s (not mine) dessert was Lemon Meringue Pie and Talenti Gelato Mediterranean Mint.

Mother’s Day 2013 – Me & My Men

Hello Friends and Happy Mother’s Day 2013!

Sending love to all the moms, mom-moms, nana’s, grandma’s, aunties, cousins, and friends on this beautiful Mother’s Day.  Mine was nice and it started with breakfast in bed, hubby made me chicken and waffles with coffee and fruit then we stayed in bed watching a Hazel marathon on Antenna TV.  This afternoon my sons took me to Ruby Tuesday for an early dinner, which is now our tradition because that is where they took me last year.

OOTD – Countdown to 2013

Hello Friends and Happy New Year’s Eve 2012!

Back to work after having a week off which flew by too quickly, thankfully there are only a few others in the office so I can play catch-up in peace.  My son, aka “Lamont” gave me some clothes to be donated to Goodwill but I kept this flannel shirt (Fred) and it fits perfectly!
