Hello Friends and Happy Fri-Yay!
If you are the parent of a high school student who will be attending the prom this year, you’ve probably heard about “Promposals“. If not, let me explain, a promposal is when a guy, or girl asks someone to the prom but in a unique way using a sign, clothing, a prop or a photo.
These teenagers can get really creative with songs and videos and there are even promposal pics on Instagram and Tumblr as well as Twitter, Facebook and of course YouTube, just Google it using the hashtag #promposal.
A few weeks ago when I first heard about this, I rushed home to ask my son, but I was too late as he had already promposed to his date. (and no, that wasn’t a bottle of alcohol).

I think they are cute as long as the teens don’t go overboard or take them too seriously like a marriage proposal. Over the top promposals are not necessary and may cause stress to others who may not want to or can’t do them.
Senior Proms are a special once-in-a-lifetime event but they are also costly, so there’s no real need to add additional expenses into the mix.
What do you think?
Don’t forget to come back at 6:00 p.m. for the Weekend Wind-Down Party!

Hello Friends and Happy Tuesday
Last Thursday I was up bright and early, well it actually wasn’t that bright, but it was early. I wanted to welcome in Spring and get a jump on wearing less clothing, mostly in particular no tights or hose.
After dressing quickly I rushed to the door to check out the weather, although there was still snow on the ground it wasn’t blustery cold as it had been only a few days earlier.
“Hey Spring, come on in, stay awhile, we’ve missed you!”
It felt good not to have to wear tights or hose and to be able to put on a short sleeve T-shirt was even better. I purposely thrifted this black T-shirt after seeing Ms. Looking Good in her white one. Prior to reading her post, I would have never thought to wear a t-shirt with a skirt or even to work, but I like the look – what do you think?
You remember these thrifted black patent leather ankle shoes. The geometric skirt was a clearance sale bargain from JC Penney. The necklace and earring set is from Jewelrymax.net, they have some great costume jewelry.
Have you ever been inspired by another blogger’s outfit?
What are you looking forward to shedding from your winter wardrobe?

Hello Friends and Happy Monday, I trust you all had a wonderful weekend!
If you read my post on Saturday you know I went to Goodwill for their annual 50% off sale and it was like a department store’s Grand Opening. The place was PACKED, there were long lines waiting for the dressing rooms, people pushing full carts of clothing, laughter and excitement when new items with tags were found and clerks rolling out full racks every 5 minutes, it was an amazing sight to see. Although I had only planned to go to Middletown, I kinda sorta wished I had also driven down to Smyrna and Dover.
I did however go with the purpose of getting an “I Love Thrifting” t-shirt, which Goodwill introduced earlier this month for $12.00. I have never ever purchased an item at Goodwill for that much, but the $12 cost for t-shirt is supporting a worthy cause and I am a proud Goodwill VIP who loves to thrift!
I was also intent on finding clothing for the Fall because I have more than enough shorts, tanks and skirts for the summer season which is rapidly coming to an end. I thrifted a dress, 2 tops, a pair of culottes and two maxi skirts all for under $14.00 – #winning
I can’t wait for the next big sale and if you are not a Goodwill VIP, it’s free to sign up and you’ll receive emails with dates for these events.
Linking up today with Mommy Monday Blog – come on over and join in on the fun!
Have a fantabulous day!
Hello Friends and Happy Friday Eve!
This morning I woke up blessed but stressed which is not the norm for me. Before driving into work I stopped at Middletown Car Care to check on the status of “Miranda”, Tayair’s old car. We took it in last week for a diagnosis to determine if is was worth having it serviced and then given to Malik or not serviced and left on the lot to be sold. I don’t like being stressed or carrying a burden so I am going to relax, take a deep breath, exhale and then release it into the atmosphere.
Friday Eve and it’s not very Springy, it’s overcast and cloudy, a “jeans and t-shirt” type of day, but since I can’t wear that to work it’s a “two-tone dress” type of day.
How do you release stress?

I am stronger than my stress!
These legs really need some sun!
Earrings were a gift from an IBM manager that I supported in 1983!
Necklace was purchased from Flea Market vendor and then I used nail polish to add color to the stones
Have a fantabulous day – Smooches!
This was the 1st year that we didn’t pile into the car to go see the annual 4th of July Fireworks in Middletown. We usually leave home at dusk to drive to Friendly’s where we parked, ate ice cream and oooh and aaahed at the sky being lit up by fireworks a few miles away. There were 2 reasons for not going this year, the most important one being that Friendly’s caught fire the week before and burned to the ground and secondly, we just didn’t feel like going, we’ve seen enough fireworks at Disney to last a lifetime.
However, in keeping with some traditions Tayair and I wore RED, WHITE & BLUE, and Malik wore a T-Shirt in memory of Andre Smith the HS Football Player killed in a car accident over Spring Break. I did watch some of the Macy’s fireworks on TV and oooh and aaah at their sky being lit up without having to fight traffic to get home.
