My Birthday Dress

Another year older! What can you do but make the most of it and watch a little Alice Cooper. That was how I started my day, Alice and cheerios... the perfect morning combination! I had a really nice birthday this year! I looked for something special to do considering my birthday was on a Friday but there was nothing going on so my hubby and I went out for an evening of dining, drinking and 3 favorite things to do! We just played it by ear and had a great time. I got to spend time with family and friends so adding another number didn't hurt too bad ♥

Blouse: Dollar Store (believe it or not you can actually find some good clothing there)
Ribbed tights: Leggs
Boots: 80's vintage

A dress that I had been eyeing for awhile on Modcloth went on sale for a ridiculously low price but it's a summer dress so will have to wait till next year. While I was checking out the sale though I came across this beautiful fuchsia colored dress. It fit well and I got alot of compliments.
I've had these boots since the 80's. I love them and only wear them on special occasions. Why I love them so I have no idea but they are my go-to shoes when I have a long night ahead of me and want to dress up. They are so comfortable.

You can't see in the above picture but I actually took my own advice and bought some ribbed tights to wear with my new dress. My hubby likes to take pics of my legs (you know how guys are) so when I looked at them later I thought, hey, you can actually see the ribs in my ribbed tights :o) They had tights on sale at CVS, buy one get one, so I bought 2 pairs. I also thought I was buying 2 pairs with a high top but it ended up being high waist mid thigh shaping undergarment which I loved. Why spend a fortune on girdles and such when you can buy one of these for a few bucks. Highly recommend this item.

I took the day off work and we went early to J. Alexanders which is always so yummy! I stepped outside to take a picture of the front of the building and started taking pics of the landscaping when I got a message on my phone. I went back in without getting the pic of the restaurant that I went out there for in the first place and that was even before the shots began :o)

I had a wonderful day!
Thanks to all the special folks in my life who make growing older each year a blessing :o)


  1. Happy Birthday! Your dress looks great on you, and I'm happy to see it was featured on such a special occasion. :) Have a great day!

  2. aw, yay, Happy Birthday! Sounds like you had the perfect evening, sometimes it's the best just playing it by ear. And your dress is SO darling, love it paired with the stripey tights. Hope your Friday is a fantastic one. xo veronika

I Have Officially Retired My Ugg Boots For The Season
My Ugg boots are probably my favorite shoewear. I love them! My feet have a tendency to get cold but not while wearing these. I have read that men don't like them but I think they are cute as can be and my hubby doesn't complain. Yes, I even like them with shorts. Although I only wear them with jeans. With the sun finally coming out, sadly it's time to place them at the back of my closet.
Top: ModCloth Jeans: Levi's 515
The top I have on is the most softest thing I own and was purchased at my favorite internet clothing shop...ModCloth. It is the The-Great-Estate-Dress and is currently sold out. They have some really cool, unique items. This was listed as a dress but was a bit short for me since you can see through the bottom layer. I pulled it up a bit and it was perfect as a top with my Levis. It would be cute with leggings or a short skirt and tights too.  I'm still trying to get out of my Levis and into some more stylish outfits but I love them so. Still …

The Cabbage Patch Kids inspired crochet hat

I just love Cabbage Patch Kids! Years ago my dad went on a mission to get me one when they were hard to find. With the invent of the internet you can almost find anything these days but back in the day it wasn't so easy. He finally succeeded but there was always a story about what a time he had. He was able to get me two in the long run. The first a little boy named Bobby George (my dad's name was Bobby also) just in case he couldn't get his hands on a girl with red hair. Luckily eventually someone was able to get the girl doll for him to give to me. I was so pleased to get them and he was so happy giving them to me that it is a memory I will always treasure. Whenever I think of Cabbage Patch dolls I always think of him. I get them out once in awhile and clean them up but I hope to display them after I paint my second bedroom which I hope to make whimsical and colorful. Arlene looked like she could use a bit of sprucing up when I got her out for pictures so I'm not su…

Dreaming of the Red Hot Chili Peppers

Ok, so last night I had a dream that I was standing on the roof watching the Red Hot Chili Peppers play "The Adventures of Rain Dance Maggie" and I was featured in the video. I was looking great in a cute outfit with some type of hat and having a ball! lol The next thing I know I'm running through the jungle looking worse for wear with a dinosaur chasing me.  We watched an episode of Terra Nova and then Jurassic Park III was on so I know why I was dreaming of dinosaurs but where did the Red Hot Chili Peppers come from? I was so excited I woke up and had to pee!

How cool can you get?
I love a man that cooks! Although Flea scares me a bit!
Now this is a fashion statement if I ever saw one.

Saturday was date night!

♥ Dress:  Modcloth ♥ Sweater:  Ralph Lauren ♥ Booties: Modcloth-boots
On Saturday morning snoozing late was a must after all that booze on Friday night. After finally getting up I was still tired and since my favorite show recorded the night before I wanted to watch it while I tried to wake up. I absolutely love Haven! Although it's just one more reason to stay out of Maine :o) Art got up early and went to breakfast with his brothers and washed the car so I had the house to myself. If I wanted to watch tv in the morning, why not? I mean I was going to be another year older the next day so I figured I could do whatever I wanted. Although not productive I didn't have to wonder what strange occurrences were happening in that strange little town. I did finally get up and do a bit of housework since my family were coming over the next day for cake but I only gave it a lick and a promise. Before I knew it it was time to get ready. I bought my dress from Modcloth when they had the …
