50 IS NOT OLD | GRAPHIC TEE AND FRAYED JEANSIt is time to celebrate!!! My birthday weekend has finally arrived and I am sitting here eating chocolate covered strawberries! Life is GOOD! I truly believe that age is an attitude and I am doing everything I can to keep mine young. I will be 57 on Sunday and I am tickled “pink” that I have been blessed to have lived this long and I hope for many more years to come. If genetics play any role at all then I don’t have to worry.50 IS NOT OLD | GRAPHIC TEE AND FRAYED JEANSMy family has longevity in their blood. My grandmother only recently passed away and she was 103. Granny was feisty and in great health even when she was in her 100’s. My grandfather on the other side of the family will be 100 this year on August 20th. He is a cracker”Jack!” He hasn’t felt good lately but his mind is still a steel trap. He LOVES Joe! Whenever I call him he will chat for just a minute and then say, “Is Joe there?” Whenever I go to visit the first thing he will ask me is, “Where is Joe, did he come with you?” Nevermind what I said about his mind, it is obvious that he is now delusional. Lol!!! BTW, Joe tells me that the only way he will ever get rid of me is by pushing me in front of a bus. If I ever get ran over by a bus you will know what happened. Haha!50 IS NOT OLD | GRAPHIC TEE AND FRAYED JEANSI am not usually “dressed” up on Saturdays. You will find me just like you in a pair of jeans and a t-shirt. However, that doesn’t mean that you can’t still be stylish even wearing t-shirts and jeans. I had this shirt made at a local store in town that does embroidery and vinyl. I bought the baseball type t-shirt and asked him to have these words put on the shirt. If I am going to wear a graphic shirt (you can wear this type shirt over 50) I want the words to reflect me. When I was young I might have worn shirts with advertisings or bands on them but now as I am older I am more picky about the message I send.

50 IS NOT OLD | GRAPHIC TEE AND FRAYED JEANSWho says that you can’t wear bling and pearls with t-shirts and jeans? Not me, that is for sure! I love dressing up a t-shirt with fancier jewelry. The Lorelei earrings are a new set that I just got in. They were part of another set that I didn’t think I wanted. Once again I was wrong. I think I am just going to start throwing darts to decide what to order. On my right arm is the plum bling bracelet in silver tone. This is the Tina and it is a special that once it is sold out it will be gone. The matching bracelet to the earrings is called the Lucinda. I wear this bracelet a lot now because of the floral design and the tiny seed pearls. There is also a matching necklace that I don’t have on called the Rosemary.

Copy and paste this link to be shopping in my party and then type in the name in the search bar or just hit the menu tab. www.plunderdesign.com/party/tania950 IS NOT OLD | GRAPHIC TEE AND FRAYED JEANSThe Broedrick, the Flynn, and the Chalon are the magnetic bling bracelets that I have on my left arm. These bracelets have become staples for me. I can’t even remember what I wore before I got them. Lol!!50 IS NOT OLD | GRAPHIC TEE AND FRAYED JEANSI like to wear cute shoes. These Converse, or Chuck Taylors, are super cute with the polka dot tongue. The pale gray color can go with anything and because these are a fashion statement, they can be worn with almost anything. I have seen women wear these shoes with dresses and suits.

50 IS NOT OLD | GRAPHIC TEE AND FRAYED JEANSI know some of you are not huge fans of distressed jeans. However, these are too cute! The distressing is perfect with the frayed hem. I think the frayed hem looks really cute turned up like this. It looks so casual but trendy at the same time. If you wear an outfit like this your children will have to give you a thumbs up 👍

    Oh my gosh, I love this look! You look absolutely beautiful in pink and I too love traffic tees that make a statement. I have one from One Faith Boutique that says “She laughs” from Proverbs 31:25. And I wish I had those jeans! Adorable w/the turned up cuff. Thanks for the stories of your family and grandparents! Those are priceless! Have a beautiful happy Mothers Day, Tania!

  31. Happy Mother’s Day and Happy Birthday, Tina! I’ll be 62 in July and luv baseball sleeves 👍🏻

    My Birthday Wish

    Today is my birthday and I’ve just had a thought
    Just for today I’ll like what I’ve got
    From morning to night I’ll cut me some slack
    And not catalog all the things that I lack

    I won’t waste one minute bemoaning my weight
    Just for today I won’t say the word “hate”
    When I look in the mirror at my cellulite thighs
    I won’t blame my ancestors and heave a big sigh

    I’ll celebrate their shape, how sturdy and round
    And be thankful they keep my rear end off the ground
    I won’t wear a big shirt to keep my hips hid
    I’ll be happy I had them to carry my kids

    When I pull my shirt on, down over my breasts
    I won’t focus on how they’ve slid down my chest
    I’ll be grateful I have them, my mammogram’s clear
    I’ll send some thoughts to some ladies I know have been there

    Today when I gaze at my face in the mirror
    I’ll cherish each wrinkle that time has put there
    The laugh lines are gifts God has given to me
    To remind me that life can be so funny

    I’ve lines by my eyes from days in the sun
    Spent with my children having some fun
    Oh, I have some gray hair, but I’ll not pull it out
    I’ll leave it right there and just think about

    The memories I’ve made and the years yet to come
    This body of mine, well, it gets the job done
    Just for today I’ll give me a break
    I’ll eat what I want, and “Yes! I’ll have cake!”

    When they put the candles on and light everyone
    I’ll have my wish made before the song has been sung
    I know I’m too old to be referred to as “cute”
    But today I look good in my birthday suit!

    There are so many more things more important in life
    I hope I’m remembered as a good mom and a wife
    Birthdays come and they go and in the end
    I’ll count myself lucky that you were my friend

    So help me blow out these candles, there’s more than a few!
    Let’s make a wish, just me and you
    Just for today let’s say “Enough is enough!”
    Let’s promise ourselves we won’t sweat the small stuff.
