Merry Christmas Monday

Hello Friends and Happy Monday

I trust you all had a wonderful weekend and I know most of you are still on holiday which probably made it even better.  Did you hit the stores and do a little more shopping or did you just stay home and relax?  

I went back to work on Thursday but took off on Friday and it was mah-va-lous, I put on a pair of leggings, a tunic and no makeup, it was great.

Christmas 2013 was very nice, a little quieter than in previous years but never the less it was nice being together as a family.  None of us got up before 10, and after opening our gifts we spent a lazy day watching “A Christmas Story“, eating and napping.

Christmas 1

This was my husband’s first try at stocking stuffing and I had to laugh because mine looked as though it threw up a scarf!  The Moscato was a gift from Pockets Discount Liquors and I will popping it open on New Year’s Eve.

Christmas 2

A stadium chair for those hard bleachers at Malik’s wrestling matches; Philadelphia Eagles car mats for Tayair and another jewelry box to help me organize the top of my dresser.

Christmas 3

Tayair received a US Polo Assn jacket and the Polaroid A8 Tablet that I purchased from Walgreens.

Christmas 4 Baltimore Raven’s pajama bottoms, a US Polo Assn jacket and heavy duty car mats for al-Malik.

Christmas 5

Socks (thrown a-la A Christmas Story), Old Spice and a Fireproof Safe

Christmas 6

A bathrobe and a Gillette Set

Christmas 7

 Earrings, animal printer slippers and a watch from my mini-men

Christmas 8

Warm tops and Hot Sauces

Christmas 9

Gift Cards and Stockings full of sweets and a toothbrush!

Christmas 10

Hubby would love for me to wear the scarf this way…but I say, “no way”!

Christmas 11

Some things never change!

  How was your Christmas?

OOTD – Brass with Black & White

Hello Friends and Happy Friday Eve!

The weather is warming up nicely despite yesterday’s hail storm, yes, it hailed in Middletown, Delaware. I hadn’t reached town yet therefore, I missed it but my girlfriend posted a pic on Facebook (LIKE me) and it was awesome, actual golf ball size hail in May – this global warming ain’t no joke!

I am getting a little impatient with the weather and am no longer waiting to go sleeveless or wear sandals as evidenced by today’s outfit. I added a little pop of color to the black and white with a coral watch and ring. The brass statement necklace with matching earrings I’ve had for over 25 years and paired them with a hammered brass bangle bracelet.

OOTD – Glori-ous Day

Hello Friends and Happy Hump Day Wednesday

Today would have been my sister’s 50th birthday and as kids I would call her “Glori” , so what could have been a gloomy day turned out to be a Glori-ous one, my Angel still shines brightly – Rest In Heaven Glori!

It took a little longer to get dressed this morning because I’m still not wearing heels and the weather forecast called for temps in the 80’s .  As much as I wanted to break out the summer gear I held back.  Decided on this thrifted polka dot skirt from GW Boutique, red sleeveless top from Ross or TJ Maxx/Marshalls and Red Stripped Wedge shoes from Avon.

OOTD – Throwback Tuesday

Hello Friends and Happy Tuesday

‘Ole Man Winter is finally giving up with temps rising every day this week, by Good Friday all the snow should be melted. Yesterday schools dismissed early so kids in the neighborhood had a chance to play in the snow, 1 house even made a family of snow people including a dog, it was so cute.

I miss not having little guys anymore and hate to see kids that are too attached to electronics. I’ve seen toddlers in grocery carts playing with their parent’s iPhones or iPads.   I don’t know about you but sometimes I just want to go outside and play!  Growing up we were up and out early riding bikes, jumping Double Dutch, playing Jacks, BoxBall, Hop Scotch, Red Light Green Light 1-2-3, Freeze Tag, all kinds of outside games.

I truly miss those times – what were some of your favorite childhood games?

OOTD – Week of Winter

Hello Friends and Happy Thursday, hope your day is going well.

Having Tuesday off from work has me a day behind mentally which may not be a bad thing because tomorrow is FRI-YAY!!!!  It was somewhat depressing reading through the blogs last night, seeing all those beautiful and colorful maxi dresses and wishing for warmer days instead of dealing with these cold Winter winds.  This morning we were greeted with snow showers…really Mother Nature – c’mon Spring!

In these pictures I may be smiling but I’m definitely not excited about these outfits, I want to shed the layers!

I had hoped that tomorrow the weather would be warmer but most likely it will be a “50’s Friday”  Oh well, the temps will eventually increase but  until then I will be wearing clothing from the winter wardrobe.

OOTD – (It's still) Winter Wednesday

Hello Friends and Happy Hump Day Wednesday!

3.13.13 and it’s still Winter but Spring is right around the corner and I’m frantically trying to wear as many of my winter clothes before it’s officially over!

You may remember when I wore this skirt with brown booties in November (here), but today I chose to wear it with beige pumps to lighten it up a bit.

I would also like to thank my Bloggy friends who co-signed on Tuesday’s Testimony, when we are of one accord blessings pour down like rain!

Don’t ever be afraid to testify  –  you never know, it might help somebody!

Winter Wardrobe

OOTD 3 13 13 011

I love this brush suede skirt because it’s style is fashionable for a woman of my age and it fits to a “T” with a perfect length.  So glad someone donated it to the GW Boutique (Goodwill). I am going to say the same for these pumps which are also classic in style and just the right heel height because I might cut back on higher heels…NOT!

OOTD – Inspired By Kela’s Kloset

Hello Friends and Happy Hump Day Wednesday!

Today’s outfit was inspired by an Instagram picture from Kela’s Kloset, a fashion blogger whom I admire and follow because of her great sense of style.  She like myself has vowed to shop our closet for the month of March, me because gas is too damn high.  I’m always checking the blogs for ideas and to get inspiration for refashioning items that I already own and this is today’s.

You know how much I love my sleeveless shift dresses, well instead of wearing a cardigan or blazer over it, I’m wearing a print top underneath.

From where do you get your outfit inspirations ~ Instagram or Pinterest?

Snow is in the forecast this afternoon starting at 4:00 pm,  just in time for my evening commute so I chose to wear an old pair of boots and to accessorize with silver jewelry

I didn’t feel like changing my purse this morning so just wrapped a coordinating scarf around the handle
