WORKING FOR THE WEEKEND

Friday, March 10, 2017

50 IS NOT OLD | WORKING FOR THE WEEKENDI have this by Loverboy song playing in my head right now, “I’m working for the weekend!” Yep, that’s exactly how I feel. I have nothing to do this weekend except to finish the woman’s club reports that I started. I have picked the winners so I now have to write the reports. I had meant to finish them last weekend but I got a call from my son asking if I could babysit. Guess which one won out! Haha! Miss Emersyn came over for the afternoon, she is such a cutie.
50 IS NOT OLD | WORKING FOR THE WEEKENDHer favorite thing to do at my house is to take a bath. I have a garden tub and she thinks that is just so much fun. She has to have a slew of toys to play with in the tub. She hardly stays in over 10 – 15 minutes and then it is time to get out and go on to something else. A trip to McDonald’s is usually also on the agenda even though she hardly eats anything. The only thing she ate from her meal last Saturday was the apple slices. Beckley and Lucy Lu were happy to help her out with a few french fries. Lol! Then she had to show me her watch which is a phone. It is made just for children and it is programmed with only about 3 or 4 names. She presses one button and it says, “do you want to call Mommy?” she can either hit call or scroll. I am programmed in there so we had a blast with her calling me and only standing three feet away. Lol! Did, I mention that she is only three?50 IS NOT OLD | WORKING FOR THE WEEKENDI love this top!!! I am just obsessed!!! I will like it, even more, when I get “my tan on.” This is a perfect example of a sweatshirt that is stylish. Unique details are what makes this sweatshirt stand out. I was describing the shirt to my sister because her daughter loves to sew. I told her that the sleeves just had slits all up over it. She kept thinking that they were serged so they wouldn’t ravel but I told her that was the whole point. This shirt is supposed to be distressed. Did you really think they were going to stop with distressing jeans? I bought this at a local boutique in town called Trendy Threads. She told me that she always knows when I put something on the blog because her email starts dinging. I messaged her last night because I know she has this top is stock, I just saw it yesterday, but it isn’t on her site. Message or call her and tell her I sent you. Lol! BTW, it also comes in a Taupe color.50 IS NOT OLD | WORKING FOR THE WEEKENDThis is a statement necklace if I have ever seen one. It is so pretty! This is called Casper. I love the necklace but I am not sure I liked it with the shirt. It just matches the color but it might have been just a touch over the top. Lol! I think that is why I wore it but now in looking at the pictures, I am questioning that decision. I already have in mind how I am going to wear the top the next time. Lol!50 IS NOT OLD | WORKING FOR THE WEEKENDThe green bracelet is called the Waverly and it matched the Casper necklace. The pink bangle is called the Broedrick. In this picture, the bracelet appears clear or white but in some of the others, you can see that it is pink. I love this bangle because the pink looks opaque. EVERY purchase over $50.00 (excluding tax and shipping) will be getting a 15% off discount check from me. This month there may also be a few giveaways splattered throughout the month. It is Joe’s birthday month and I feel like celebrating!!! To place an order simply go to www.plunderdesign.com/party/tania350 IS NOT OLD | WORKING FOR THE WEEKENDThis satchel is OLD! This is a purse from Stella & Dot called the Switch that I got for having a party. I love this old thing even though it is probably about three years old. I like the pattern, I like the tassel, and I like the sides that zip up. However, the handles are starting to crack and I am not thrilled about that. I think my jeans are a pair that I bought at Marshalls call Earl Jeans. I like this brand, it is inexpensive and they fit nicely. What more could you ask for? Haha

50 IS NOT OLD | WORKING FOR THE WEEKENDI think the only thing left to talk about is my booties. These have become my “go to” boot. They are by Old Navy and they are really comfortable. I know that some of you have commented before about their shoes and wondering about the comfort level. I can’t speak for all the shoes but this pair has been wonderful. I wear them a lot to work and even though I don’t do a huge amount of walking, I do walk some. 50 IS NOT OLD | WORKING FOR THE WEEKENDI bet I wear this sweatshirt a lot this coming year. It is lightweight so I can even see me wearing this with shorts. What do you think?

I am going to be placing a bulk order for some Rodan + Fields this weekend. I am running a special of the Multi-Function Eye Cream. If anyone would like to try this product this would be a perfect time. It is normally 62.00 but I am selling it for 55.00 plus tax. I will pay the shipping. This is your opportunity to try Rodan + Fields number 1 selling eye cream, aka “eye crack.” LOL! Email me if you are interested.

My Energizer Bunny friend and I will be holding our weekly ZOOM call on Sunday at 8:00 pm EST. This is an opportunity call for those interested in looking at what Rodan + Fields can do for you. Do you want to purchase the products at cost, do you want to check into how the business works, or if you just want to call and hang out with us for 20 to 30 minutes you sure can. ZOOM is a free app that you download onto your device. Hit the Join A Meeting button and type in this number: 736 578 7052 You will get a microdermabrasion paste packet just for listening!

Today is the last day to enter for the Lash Boost giveaway!!! To enter comment below your plans for the weekend.

    Love that statement necklace, Tania – the kind of jewellery I love to wear – I would love to see how it looks with either white or the same green as in the necklace. The top is really beautiful and an eye-catcher with the unique sleeves and the shoulders that are different!!!!! Lovely look!!!

    Hello Tania. Love this casual outfit, especially the top. Interesting sleeves and pretty color. My daughter just moved into her first apartment so this weekend I will be helping her get her place in order and make sure she has all the essentials so mommy is comfortable with her new place. LOL. Almost an empty nester. My youngest is in college and will be home next week for spring break. Should be a fun weekend.

  • Linda
    March 10, 2017

    Love the top, especially the color. It looks great with the jeans. Once again, you look classy and sassy! Your granddaughter sounds so much like my 3 year old granddaughter, Emily. She and her brother, Andrew, are having a sleepover with us tomorrow! We will have so much fun and I will be so tired Sunday. I will be going to Andrew’s soccer game tomorrow morning. A couple of hours after his game, I will return to the soccer field to watch my 11 year old granddaughter’s soccer game. It will be a busy, but fun weekend.

    I would love to try the lash boost.

  • Kandi
    March 10, 2017

    HI Tania, I love this sweater! I also like how the olive green stones in your necklace stand out against the pink. Emersyn is a doll and I enjoy reading how the two of you are making sweet memories together. My plans this weekend – hmm – well, if I can get rid of this “spring allergy” sinus headache, I’ll probably cook. I found a recipe for Greek Lemon Chicken Orzo Soup and I want to make that. Have a blessed weekend!!

    Love Love LOVE the sweatshirt. I love the necklace with it – just enough bling! Please enter me in the LASH BOOST giveaway! My plans for the weekend include packing for my trip to Colorado to visit our son in the Army. Trying to figure out how to pack my gumbo pot, because he and his friends have already requested gumbo, jambalaya, dirty rice, shrimp and grits. So I have to pack clothes light and try to pack my whole kitchen in one bag. Oh what fun! Then our grands are coming over for their weekly sleepover for church on Sunday. Have a great weekend!

    Is the new Plunder catalogue out yet? My weekend plans include dinner with friends, getting the winter clothes out of my closet and the spring ones in (I have to use a closet downstairs for out of season clothes), and definitely a long walk in this beautiful Georgia weather (minus the yellow pollen we have right now- yuck!). Enjoy your weekend!!

    Tania, I love the top! I also like Earl Jeans. They are a great fit. Also, are your earrings Plunder? They are cute too! My house is torn up because my husband is doing a complete remodel on our master bath. So I will be trying to do some cleaning and will be helping him tile. I have a brand new bath vanity and sink sitting in my living room! Ready for the project to be done.
