Welcome 2013

Happy New Year everyone! We had a great time ringing in the new year. We usually go out early in the day and try to make it home before midnight to avoid the party goers and the cops. This year we went to TGI Fridays, which I love, for an early dinner. If you haven't tried the potstickers as an appetizer there you must try them. Yum yum yum! We then stopped for a couple beers at the Dark Horse Tavern on our way to the local bar which is only about 5 minutes from home. My husband was sipping beer while buying me little beer shots (which look like a little beer but don't taste anything like beer) so I'd say I had the best time until I got home and couldn't undress myself! lol Needless to say a good time was had by all and especially me. I don't drink very often but when I do, I do it right but hey, it was New Year's Eve and that's what you are supposed to do, right? Celebrate, I must say I did! I barely made it through the ball drop so I got alot of kidding from my hubby yesterday but all was good. Fadra woke me up at 5:00 a.m. wanting me to come to bed. Apparently I hadn't made it out of the other bedroom before passing out. Actually I have no idea why I was even in there. Art said he was lucky to get me out of my clothes and into my pajamas with all the singing and dancing (and falling) that I was doing :o)  I spent yesterday watching Batman movies and my hubby sleep ♥

I don't normally do resolutions as I have a hard enough time getting back into a routine after the holidays without vowing to do this or that so I just go with the flow and resolve to be a better me. With a whole new year ahead the options are wide open ♥   



♥ Coat: Modcloth- Second to fun coat (Christmas present from my husband :o) Love it!

I hope we all have the best year ever!

I'll drink to that!

  1. I hope we all have the best year ever, too! You look adorable in your cozy coat, Darlene. Thanks for linking up with Visible Monday : >

    1. Thanks Patti, always a pleasure to hear from you.

      Visible Monday rocks, thanks for hosting!

  2. So sweet in your pink coat and little boots! Classic, with an edge. Your dog reminds me that my poor poodle-boy, Fabu FauxPas, REALLY needs grooming. Not that he cares.
    What a nice New Year with your hubs! Enjoy the rest of 2013 just as much!

    1. Thanks for stopping by Jan and the lovely compliment! Fadra goes to the beauty shop once a month and I try to brush her out at least once a week, otherwise she'd be a terrible mess with all her hair. I'm looking forward to spring when she can be cut shorter but I don't think she likes that. She looks like she feels as if she were naked! lol Dogs crack me up!

      Hope you have a wonderful year yourself girl!

  3. Very nicely cut coat and a really nice color.
    Your dog is just darling! A fluffy, sweet ball of fur.
    Wow, you do have some nice snow, can we borrow some?

    1. Hi Debbi, thanks for visiting and the nice compliment. I love the coat. It's so comfortable. Fadra is like a big ball of cotton, so soft and fluffy :o)

      After the first snow I am ready for spring so you can borrow (or just have) all the rest of the snow we might get!

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.

Beautiful photography by F. C. Gundlach. I now have the urge to go for a drive and pose next to a car ♥ 

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 …
