Hello Friends and Happy Sunday
I trust you all had a nice weekend and were able to relax or do something fun and exciting or both! I wasn’t able to clean out my closets but I did have a busy fun filled weekend which started with the honor of being chosen, “Top Blogger of the Week” by Sverve. I was in a fantastic mood as I headed out leaving my men doing yard work which wasn’t what my sons had planned for their weekend. While in town I stopped at my favorite lunch spot, The Java House Cafe where they were hosting a book signing by Christian author Richelle Rodgers. Her book, Forever Growing A Journey of Trust is a motivational book on empowerment and growing your relationship with God. Richelle is a retired Army Vet who remains very active in supporting other female vets and is currently working on a Women Veterans Leadership Awards Symposium to be held in DC this fall.
Today, The Java House Cafe hosted another book signing by author, Jacqueline Charmane, her 5th book, They Raped Me Once Over and Over Again, is a true story based on her life. She spoke briefly about some of the heart breaking events in her life including the emotional and physical abuse by both her rapist and husband as well as the the kidnapping of her son. I was fortunate to have had the opportunity to speak with each author after the events, purchased an autographed copy of the books, and took pictures which I will post later this week.
Today, was a bright and sunny day, a little cool but I had just purchased this Printed Cold Shoulder Dress from Avon and wanted to wear it to church.
It reminds me of a 70’s retro dress with the slit sleeves, do you remember Julie from The Mod Squad?
This vibrant floral print dress is only $24.99 for all sizes – S-3X
I wore navy blue heels – thrifted from GW Boutique (Goodwill)
Embellished Cross Collection Rings and Bangles – Avon
Earrings are silver hoops from jewelry box
Have a fantastical week – Smooches!
Hello Friends and Happy Tuesday
There are only a few traces of yesterday’s snow and according to the meteorologist, Mother Nature will be having a hot flash so all that remains will be melted by Friday. It’s tough for people not to accept the existence of Global Warming especially with all of these varying weather conditions around the world. Al Gore has been speaking out for years, now just maybe people will take him more seriously. Okay, stepping down off the soap box.
Most of you know that I love…love…love…shoes and will be the first to admit that I have too many, but it’s not something new, I have been a shoe lover since High School. I’ve always had to have the latest styles in different colors…pastel pinks…mellow yellow…aqua marine blue….heels…flats…sandals…boots – I loved them all. These days I don’t buy as many as I used to but when I find a bargain, I am on it like a heat seeking missile (remember the Target haul?) Because I have so many I can’t remember ever wearing the same pair two days in a row that was until today, this is the first time. There are two reasons for this, first I am still trying to get my closet in order and secondly, these Granny boots are comfortable and look cute with this outfit!
Boots – Ross // Animal Print Maxi Shirt – GW Boutique (Goodwill) // Cowl Neck Shirt – closet staple
Necklace and Earring Set – Jewelrymax.net – Snake and Crocodile Rings – Avon // Belt – Rainbow Shop
