Last Saturday night, hubby and I attended the Wilmington High School Class of ‘74 White Party held at the Chase Center on the Riverfront. My husband actually graduated in 1975, but it was a 1974 Scholarship Fundraiser attended by many of the graduates including those from the classes of 1974 and beyond.
Needless to say, we had a great time and because it was an all white party I was able to purchase a new dress, which most of you would have seen if you follow me on Instagram. Hubby and I had gone shopping a few weeks prior where I found this cute dress at Boscov’s .
The shoes are closet staples but the purse was also a recent purchase from Steinmart, a store that I hadn’t shopped before. However, it won’t be the last time I shop there, because I also purchased a white lace dress for another #whiteparty which we will be attending in August.
Hubby custom designed his white suit from the World of Alfa, which is an online designer of men’s clothing created by the actor Boris Kudjoe.
The World of Alfa offers high styles at low cost and I must admit that we looked GOOD!
Not only did we look good but everyone in attendance was also looking good and feeling fabulous especially out there on the dance floor where we jammed to “blasts from the past”. The songs were spun by DJ Touch Tone and hyped by Lady B of Old School 100.3.
Please check out my Facebook page to see a few short videos.
We had a great time and had almost made it to the bewitching hour of 2:00 am which was the time the party was to end, but we left around 1:00 am, which was still a late night for us both.
There was a cash bar and finger foods, also a few vendors and photo booths but I found the “charging station” to be an added bonus so that I could keep my phone’s battery from dying and losing out on some great pics.
Driving home hubby and I talked and laughed about the good time we had and we are looking forward to next month’s event in Townsend, Delaware which is being sponsored by hubby’s fraternity, Omega Psi Phi.
So how was your weekend?
I can still remember 25 years ago when my husband first touched my hand, I felt tingly all over. Fast forward to today and his touch still makes me feel special but now K-Y® YOURS+MINE makes us both feel tingly all over.
Looking back to our early years of marriage, Valentine’s Day was a time to get dressed up and hit the town, now we prefer to stay in snuggled up in front of the fireplace watching a movie. Trust me, the romance is not dead, just a little more laid back which is fine by me. A K-Y® YOURS+MINE K-Y® DATE NIGHT with flowers, chocolate or just a dinner and a movie is what we both need to reconnect and stimulate our minds and bodies.
Whether or not you and hubby or your significant other will be spending Valentine’s Day out and about or simply staying home, why not stop by your local Walmart to pick up a K-Y® YOURS+MINE K-Y® DATE NIGHT kit.
Oh, and make sure you get the Limited Edition of the K-Y® DATE NIGHT because it’s contains a $50 value promo which includes 1 free meal for 2 from PEACHDISH.com delivered right to your door for an intimate night of cooking together; a $5 VUDU movie credit for you to stream at home and the pleasure of K-Y® YOURS+MINE Couples Lubricants, what more could you ask for, that’s what I call a 2 fer!
So just in case the weather doesn’t cooperate on the 14th of February and you get snowed in, having a K-Y® YOURS+MINE K-Y® DATE NIGHT can make it a romantic date night in!
Have you made plans for Valentine’s Day?
Hello Friends and Happy Fri-Yay!
It’s going to be another cold weekend so I’m staying indoors to do some early Spring cleaning…yes, I’m even doing the boring chores. I don’t know about you, but I am super anxious for the warmer weather to get here so I can shed the layers and put away the snow shovel. Even though we have several more months before we get to that point, I wanted to at least get a jump start on it now.
I refuse to let the wintery winds of January stop me from thinking about or even shopping for the Spring season because now is the best time to do so. I recently signed up as an affiliate for Hannah Jane, a new online boutique with some great clothing and accessories at affordable prices. I found a few cute pieces on sale/clearance that I will be adding to my Spring wardrobe, take a look and let me know what you think.
I recently saw a fellow blogger in a classic white T-shirt, so I want to incorporate them into my wardrobe. This Yellow Bubble necklace would be a perfect accessory to jazz it up.
Fuchsia is such a fun Spring color and in jeans it will be great for a casual Friday outfit.
You know that I love all things Polka Dot and this top paired with a Houndstooth infinity scarf would be great to wear on an early chilly Spring morning or evening.
Or would it look better with the red scarf?
You definitely can’t go wrong with a White or Ivory button down blouse and I wish they had this skirt in stock!
I immediately feel in love with this striped comfy, casual knit dress. I could wear it with boots as shown or with pumps to work or even with ballet flats to run errands on the weekend. What do you think?
We do have a few months of cold weather ahead, so I’ll wear a turtleneck underneath this sweater.
AND… I finally found a pair of riding boots in my price range!
The great thing about shopping at Hannah Jane, other than the prices is that they offer FREE SHIPPING on all orders over $50, and a flat $4.99 rate for orders under $50.
If you get a chance, head over to their website and take advantage of the 20% off one item sale and if you sign up for the Newsletter you’ll get an additional discount off of your first order. #winning
Stay Blessed – No Stress in 2014!
I make money on some products and services that I talk about on this website through affiliate relationships with the merchants in question. I get a small commission on sales of those products. That in no way affects my opinion of those products and services.
Thursday evening I along with many other Facebook sweepstakes winners had an opportunity to attend the Pre-Grand Opening and Charity Night held at Westown Movies. The excitement for this event began when it was first announced that a movie theatre was going to be built in Middletown. Most residents in the M.O.T. (Middletown/Odessa/Townsend) area were happy and anxiously waited for what seemed like a long time for this much needed family entertainment venue.
Westown Movies did not miss a beat in incorporating the local flair in it’s designs and features of the 44,500 square foot theatre. Upon entering the lobby you are greeted by a 1,100-square foot mural showcasing Middletown’s familiar landmarks Cochoran Square, the Everett Theatre and scenes from the Old Tyme Peach Festival.
Thursday night’s event also showcased and benefited local organizations with donations to the Middletown’s Big Ball Marathon; the Appoquinimink Foundation and the Ronald McDonald House in Wilmington.
Mascots representing the local schools entertained and posed for pictures with the children as well as with many of the adults.
Earlier this year I met with Rick Roman, owner of Westown Movie theatre. He explained that movie goers would have an opportunity to experience movie watching unlike any other in the state including at the IMAX in Wilmington.
Westown Movies is the first GTX theatre between New York and Washington to offer a deluxe auditorium with 300 luxury seats, a 2,200 square foot screen, Dolby Atmos surround sound with 128 tracks and 64 speakers.
I don’t go to movies often and for the free screening it was a treat for me to be able to watch either Wolverine or Free Birds. Of course, I chose Wolverine and it definitely was an awesome experience, the picture clarity and magnificent surround sound was like no other!
Another home town aspect of Westown Movies are the food selections from the self serve concession. In addition to normal popcorn and soda offerings, other foods being sold are from local Middletown businesses including Pat’s Pizza and Half Baked Patisserie.
Westown Movies is helping in the growth of our community, the economics of our state and bringing jobs and family fun to the area which is a win-win for everyone.
Tonight is the official Grand Opening of Westown Movies – so grab a date or your mate and head out for a fun filled evening at the theatre. You can also download the free app on Google Play or iTunes to purchase tickets online without an additional service charge being added to the in-lobby price.
Welcome Westown Movies
We are looking forward to many years of family fun entertainment!
