Hello Friends and Happy Fri-Yay!!!!!
This week really flew by and there’s definitely a chill in the air – “it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas” – are you getting excited? I don’t have any major plans for the weekend and since my sons are older I don’t have to stress about the holidays but I do want to make a Gingerbread house.
Tomorrow night I may walk around the neighborhood taking pics of the pretty houses or perhaps just sit on the sofa watching movies drinking Egg Nog. What are your plans for the weekend?

Hello Friends and Happy Cyber Monday, are you shopping online today? There are a few items that I’d like to get but nothing major so I think I’ll wait until this evening or perhaps even after the holidays for deeper discounts. On Black Friday I didn’t go to the mall instead I went to GW Boutique (Goodwill) in Middletown, it wasn’t crowded so I was able to take my time to find a few items knowing that I would return Saturday for the 50% off sale.
Jonathan Martin Polka Dot Skirt
Dressbarn 3/4 sleeve blouse
Mix It Blouse
Style & Co. Polka Dot Knit Top
Apt. 9 Brown and White Polka Dot Shirt Sleeve Blouse
In Vain Polka Dot Short Sleeve Blouse
Jones New York Polka Dot Maxi Skirt
Worthington mini dot skirt
All items were $3.75 each, I would have waited until Saturday but didn’t want the hassle of relocating them and I am not one who “hides” merchandise- lol
WantedShoes.com Leather Studded Pumps – $4.00
Givenchy Parfume Quilted tote – $2.00
Perfect size for carrying my iPad, note pad, wallet and cell phone
Holiday heels unfortunately were not my size
Have a fantabulous day – Smooches!
Hello friends, happy Monday and what a beautiful day it is. Every morning when I wake up I give thanks and think of how truly blessed we are…that after saying, “aaw man, I have to get up and go to work again!”. Monday is not my favorite day and today’s outfit isn’t my favorite either, just two solid pieces together, nothing special. Both the maxi skirt and top are closet staples which I have worn several times throughout the years, however, this is the first time wearing the Polka Dot peep-toes pumps. I’ve tried them on and even posed in them (here), but have never wore them out and they are quite comfortable. I should have gotten a half size larger because when I walk my feet slides forward causing the toes to stick out too far, need to get those gripper inserts.

The beginning of a new week, may it be blessed and productive. Yes, I am wearing white after
Labor Day because summer isn’t over and it was hot today! Headed out for weekly grocery shopping in white capris and green/white polka dot top both thrifted from Goodwill. Green sandals from NYand Company and sunnies won from Penny Chic.

Today was the first day of school for al-Malik and needless to say, he was not excited about boarding that bus this morning….kept whining something about wanting a car….in his dreams and my nightmares!!! Time sure does fly, after today I only have 1 more chance to get that “first day of school” picture, then he’s off to college!!! Where does the time go…I miss my babies 🙁
Hubby started back to school yesterday, he’s a Student Advisor in a Middle School. When I got home and asked how his day was, he was like…”oooh you know how it hard it is going back….” NOPE…cause I don’t get 3 months off in the summer buddy!!!! I have a house of whiners!!!!

In 1971, The Carpenters sang, Rainy Days and Mondays Always Get Me Down, perhaps it did for them but it doesn’t for me, especially when I get to wear a fedora instead of an umbrella!

Thursday is the horizon to the weekend…it’s all downhill from here. Today is gloomy and overcast after last evening’s showers and thunderstorms that broke the heatwave. My goal this week was to wear a dress a day and barring any major downpours tomorrow I will have succeeded. I remember when girls/women only wore dresses and in Junior High I would hide pants under my skirts because my grandmother didn’t allow us to wear them. My sister and I had a job at Arthur Treachers Fish & Chips and we had to ask permission from our Pastor to wear the uniform because it had pants. Now here it is 37 years later and I prefer to wear dresses on the daily and hubby seems to enjoy it as well (side eye wink wink).
This Polka Dot dress was featured in my June post, here, but I decided to mix the polka dots with my green, patterned wedges from Ross.
WEEKEND IS COMING!
Today’s smoothie wasn’t as green as my outfit because I am low on spinach, I used blueberries, strawberries and non-fat yogurt and it was quite tasty. Today is Hump Day Wednesday and the week is dragging after last week’s short one but I am plowing through in anticipation of another great weekend.

If you read my Monday blog you know that my week started out mis-matched because I was unable to prepare my outfits for the week on Sunday night.. It didn’t get any better and to make matters worse I stayed up late last night watching the 2-hour premier of Dallas (OMG IT WAS MUST SEE TV) which is why I have 2 OOTD entries today. The dress is BLUE and white polka dot but the shoes were BLACK and white polka dot and even though my son said, “mom it looks alright – I’m tired of taking pictures , I changed my shoes and accessories and this what I ended up wearing to work.

This dress was one of three purchased in May 2009, to wear to my grandmother’s funeral – RIP Mama! Blue was her favorite color and I wanted to wear something blue but ended up wearing the traditional funeral black. It has been hanging in my closet ever since because it has a short cropped jacket and ribbon belt which makes it look very matronly. Today I decided to wear it but without the jacket and ribbon belt and it’s now one of my favorites.
