Happy Monday everyone! I hope each of you have a great weekend. Mine was hectic, but filled with lots of laughter. I loved seeing my daughter, I can’t beleive it has been January since she was in the last time. After 10 minutes or so, it was like she had never left. It will take several weeks after she leaves for Joe and I to get over missing her. You get so used to having her in the house, and then all of a sudden the house seems empty.Ashleigh is like a whirlwind. She is always wanting to go and do something, and we are used to our easy going routine. There is also an adjustment phase at the beginning of her visit. Lol! When we go to bed at night, we will run a box fan to help hide the noise from the television still being on. The food we eat changes along with the time we will eat. And of course, no walking around the house without clothes on! 😳Pink and brown is one of my favorite color combinations. This scarf top combines the two colors, and makes them look so elegant. The material is like satin, so it is very smooth. I am not usually that big a fan of the boatneck look, I prefer a v-neck or a low round neck, but this top is still one of my favorites. I think the cap sleeves, along with the dark brown on the sleeves, help to draw your eyes outward. The elastic banded bottom keeps the top in place, with no need for “tucking.” This top is by A. Byer, and I think I purchased it at JC Penney. I couldn’t find a similar top, but I am linking some that I really like.

The first time I wore this Kimberly necklace, I paired it with lace. This necklace has it all; pearls, rhinestones, and leather. What more could a girl want? Haha I have an August contest running with Plunder. EVERYONE who places an order from Plunder through me in the month of August, will be entered in for a $25.00 Plunder gift certificate. You can buy a bracelet, and you will be entered into the contest. To shop with me, here is the website: http://www.plunderdesign.com/taniastephens Try copying and pasting this in the address line, and hopefully it will work. If not, then type in my stylist number 241007 in the stylist box at checkout. I have started an online party, and there is a dropdown box where you can choose Tania’s P Party at checkout also. Several of you ladies have already taken me up on this offer. Good Luck!Since I was wearing leather in my necklace, I chose to wear to leather cuffs, in the matching dark brown. Both of these cuffs were bought at little coffee shops, so I don’t have a brand to link to. The large cuff has the saying, G.R.I.T.S., Girls Raised In The South, and the smaller on says, I Can Do All Things Through He That Strengthens Me.
Bracelets: Same | Similar | SimilarI didn’t want to bring a lot of attention to my feet, so I chose light tan leather for my shoes, instead of the dark brown. I wanted to keep the attention at my face. However, these Rialto sandals with the gold trim are extremely cute.
Rialto Sandals: Navy | Rose Gold | EmbellishedMy pale pink ankle pants are Old Navy Pixie Pants. I love Pixie Pants, they fit me great, and they are flattering. I will even wear them in the fall and winter by tucking them into my knee boots. Once again, this takes a clothing piece and makes it more versatile. Or how I usually phrase it, “More Bang For Your Buck!”
Ankle Pants: Talbots | Ellen Tracy | Old NavyHere is a photo of part of the girls that came to the party on Saturday. My daughter is in the orchid colored dress, second from the right. As you can tell, she did NOT inherit my bosom.😏This was the second wave that showed up. Some only stopped by for an hour or so, while others spent the night. This crew has been together since grade school, and it looks like 10 years after high school, they are still close friends.I struggled to take pictures when I was at the woman’s club conference. In fact, I didn’t take any pictures for the blog at all, but I did manage to take a couple selfies to send to Joe each day. I didn’t want him to forget what I looked like. Lol!Here was day number one. I have on a dragonfly pin, that is the symbol of our new District President. We wore the pins because we were hostesses for the conference, and anyone who had questions could ask someone wearing the pin.Here was selfie number two. I am still trying to learn the “art” of the selfie. It is incredibly hard to take a picture, click the button, smile into the camera, and look decent all at the same time. I had hoped he would take the hint and send my a selfie of himself, but that never happened.I am leaving you with a Brad Paisley hit. This is probably my very favorite song by Brad, and that is saying a lot. He has a huge amount of hits that I really like. But, when this song comes on, Joe and I will always start slow dancing. I can’t hear it without smiling. Play it when your hubby comes home tonight, and get your own dance going. 😍
