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)…

Thankful for a Broke Down TV

Hello friends! I am just sitting down after a great dinner celebrating my daughter in law’s birthday. We made a enchilada casserole and bought chips and salsa from our favorite restaurant. (On the Home front our smart tv died and that is the biggest blessing this holiday!) 😆 We spent the whole evening talking and…

It’s a Patterned Life

Hello friends! Even on Monday I somehow manage to feel happy! For the first time in about three weeks, I’m caught up on my paperwork at my paid job! That’s crazy right?? But to be honest, I’ve had two trainings during that time along with a holiday and I’ve been drowning (metaphorically) most of the…

Wish List

Hey friends! How are you all on this fine Wednesday? I hope everyone is well and happy 🙂 I thought I would share a little bit of my fun trip to Wyoming last weekend! I left on Thursday and returned Sunday. Thursday I had some fun in the thriving metropolis of Thayne Wyoming (actually it’s…

Heat of Summer

Hello friends! I hope you’re staying cool and safe in this hot summer! This morning at 830 it was already 80 degrees, so I’m guessing it’s gonna be a scorcher again! I have a black car with black interior and it’ll be a little toasty when I get off work! How do you stay cool…

Fashion Addicted Self Care

Hey friends! How was your Monday? Glad it’s over??? Me too LOL Last week I took a values assessment (work related) and I discovered in four values areas: work, relationships, leisure, and personal growth-health that I am lacking in the leisure area. Who knew?? I graded myself two dots away from “bullseye” in work and relationships but then realized I work pretty hard and am dedicated- along with being connected in the vital relationships in my life- so I thought that might be a judgement of myself. I graded two dots away from bullseye in personal growth/health because of my…

Bright, Bold, and Confident in Yellow

Hello friends and Happy Friday! How is everyone today? I hope you’re all well and looking forward to the weekend! I know I am! Thanks again friends for reading my blog, I appreciate your encouragement and follows 🙂 I discovered the most darling yellow striped tee at H&M (City Creek Center) the other day along…

Destroy an Ugly Car!

Hello friends! I’m in the middle of a relaxing evening and hubs wants to watch a James Bond movie. I’m always down for Bond; and we started Quantom of Solace. (I love Sean Connery although I think Daniel Craig is best bond evaa). One thing I notice as the movie starts, DANG IT! THEYRE DESTROYING ANOTHER GORGEOUS CAR! Seriously how many Aston Martin automobiles must die in the name of Bond?? Couldn’t we just sacrifice a Pinto or a Nova or (LOL) a Prius?? Why can’t the pretty cars be safe?? I really like cars; did I mention that?? Just…

Feeling Neon

Hello Friends and Happy Wednesday (almost halfway through our week!) How are you all doing? I talk to you as if you are right here and we are face to face 🙂 I’m actually quite cheery today despite some sadness over the weekend. I think I must be recovering or the joy of halfway through…
