It’s A Colorful Spring

Hello friends and Happy Wednesday! I was thinking of all the bright colors in my closet this spring and had a little giggle reflecting back to the movie “Devil Wore Prada”- “florals for spring? Groundbreaking”! LOL! I think spring is always full of bright, fun colors but for some reason I’m really rocking them (no matter what Miranda Priestly says- I don’t need her permission, I don’t work for her!) So I thought I would share two of this week’s fun bright spring looks that I love (closet shopping win)! First I couldn’t resist going all purple/pink on Monday! Seriously,…

Laughter, the Best Medicine

Hello friends and happy Thursday! I just had to share something hilarious from last night. Our daughter and her two children (age 8 and 4) are living with us. It’s been a big change for all of us and we often have such fun! Last night my husband came home late from work; he’s been…

Feeling Very Mellow in my Yellow

Hello Friends and Happy Monday! It’s the first Monday in May! I’m so excited for warmer weather! My yard is coming back to life and I love all the new blooms and leaves. Spring is such a wonderful time. I thought I would share my love for yellow this season! I invested in several yellow…

Trolling the Junior Section

Hello friends and Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a good weekend! I had the best time with four of my grandkids, they are so precious; I am very blessed. Not to mention they are a hoot! One grandson in response to a question, did you get enough bacon tonight said “Yes (in a news…

Graphic Arts

Hello friends! Happy Monday! It’s not been my typical Monday as today is a near blizzard; I made it to work driving very slow but once I got here none of my clients made it because they can’t get out of their complex ❄️ ❄️❄️ So here I am at work trying to make myself…

New Year Renewal

Hello friends! Happy New Years Eve! I hope you are all ready for 2019! How did the year go by so quickly?? I’m happy for a new year; it’s like a fresh start (and of course then there is spring {after snow melts in a couple months}and everything in the earth is new too)! I…

Gaming (In my House)

Hello friends! I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas! I enjoyed myself immensely over the last four days off from work! I got to see some of my hubs family and then my children/grandchildren came over two of the last four days! I am so blessed! I think the most fun I have is in “gaming” which means something different to me! In our family, we love love love to play games! Lately we’ve been playing a lot of “Codenames”, “Sequence”, “Ticket to Ride”, “UNO” of course, “Pass the Pigs, and our grandkids gave us a new game “Skull King”…

Grateful Streak Continues…..

Hello Friends! If you’re new to reading my blog, I’ve dedicated my last three or so weeks to shopping my closet instead of new wardrobe items to focus on gratitude before Christmas. Today I’m sharing several things: First I had a somewhat lengthy and irritating debate with a client yesterday (he might not be willing…

Closet Creativity

Hello friends! And welcome to another installment of my thriftiness/thankfulness marathon labeled as closet creativity! I hope my efforts to shop my closet help you think of ways you can also do the same! Today I’m sharing a new (yet old) outfit I created from my closet and I really had some fun! First I…

Renewed Thriftiness and Thankfulness

Hello Friends! How are you all doing? Did you survive Thanksgiving weekend and Black Friday?? I try to get a lot or most of my Christmas shopping done that weekend to spend more time enjoying the holiday season, but I still have six gifts left to purchase; which is not too bad out of 22 people we (me and hubs) have on our gift list this year. I am so blessed with a wonderful family and great friends that I am happy to be out shopping for them. Although my thanksgiving was less than ideal (see my “Thanksgiving Debacle” post)…
