Thankful Thursday

Hello Friends…it’s

thankful thursday 2

This week I am thankful for the following:

hubby and son’s covered the pool before I got home and they did it correctly!

 had a lazy…do-nothing…no makeup…didn’t-even-leave-the-house weekend

ironed almost all of my clothes

finally defrosted the freezer in garage

watched season premier of  The Walking Dead

 #1 son is doing well and is actively seeking full time employment – say a little prayer for him

#2 son attended his final Homecoming Dance and was home before midnight

 discovered and watched the new show “Sleepy Hollow” and now I am hooked

but most importantly,  I am thankful for my health, family, friends , finances and of course my faith

oh and that tomorrow is Fri-Yay!

I wore this outfit on Wednesday and chose to add the red blazer because the weather was a bit cool early morning

Dress for Less

This was another beautifully blessed week despite the 3 hour commute into work yesterday due to a tractor trailer accident on route 896 – no one was seriously injured just cited for inattentive driving!

Now it’s your turn, what are you thankful for this week?


Last Weekend in September

Hello friends, I hope that you had a great weekend. I cannot believe that tomorrow is the first day of October…where did September go? The weekend was uneventful but I did clean out my closet and put away the summer shoes. It’s unbelievable that there were this many shoes in my closet!


I also removed a lot of clothes and next week will be at the Flea Market selling them for $1.00 a piece, anything not sold will be donated to Goodwill. I didn’t get a chance to post Thursday or Friday’s outfits so here they are.

Worthington top from JC Penney, gauchos are a closet staple, boots from Payless. Necklace belonged to my grandmother and it was the first time wearing it.

Saturday night Malik went with a friend to a Homecoming Dance and was excited to be riding in a Mercedes, which belonged to Mike’s mother – I wish I had a Benz! I didn’t ask, but wonder if they coordinated their attire with the car – lol!
