A blue dress on a hot day

The weather lately has been rather cool but the last few days have been sweltering, muggy hot. I finally scheduled my vacation and I am so hoping for pool weather so I can wear my new swimsuit. It looks like summer will be almost over before my toes dip into the pool. I've been trying to get some things done which mostly have been online or indoors or it's been too cold. I've been updating all the sites I like so if you decide to follow or connect to me I will have some updated content. Since sites are so easy to access through my iPhone I am hoping to be able to keep up. Getting things done I have been putting off so it is feeling good to get some things accomplished. Rather than thinking any more  I have made decisions and following through which not only feels good but feels awesome is more like it!

Dress: Modcloth (similar)///Shoes: Blowfish///Eyeglasses: Jessica McClintock 

I bought this dress last year to take to Florida with me but it wasn't quite right for my son's college graduation. I love the color and the material and it's perfect for work, though. I rotate it in my work wardrobe often, summer and winter. The  flats are so comfortable I've almost worn them out.


A few weeks ago Fadra got ahold of my eye glasses and chewed them up. So much so they couldn't be salvaged. It was a good thing I needed a new pair anyway or she would have been in a world of hurt! Yeah right, huh. I can't see to read without them so I had to take off work to get a new pair. I had to wear my pair I had before the broken ones which were not much help in seeing my work. Getting new glasses turned into a have-to-have them now situation. I have vision insurance which I hadn't used yet and as it turned out my eye doctor of many years did not accept it. I made a few calls and found an Eye Mart which did accept it. I was extremely happy with the service. My appointment was same day at 10:00 a.m. and I picked my glasses up after I got off work at 5. Complete with bifocals and Transitions Lenses. I would highly recommend them. They are like a well oiled machine. I was impressed!

My Hydrangeas are pink this year. I'm lacking something in my soil but they are pretty nonetheless and easy to grow.

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 …
