I think I celebrated too much yesterday. I can tell you this, my ways of celebrating has changed over the years. I started the celebration with going to church. Our church has two services, one starts at 8:45 and another one at 11:00. Joe and I went to the 11:00 service and I expected it to be packed on Mother’s Day but it was actually kind of empty. I don’t know where everyone was. Joe and I then went to lunch and then he headed off to golf. Joseph, Kayla, and Emersyn came over for just a short time. Emersyn wanted to take a nap and she was cranky. I tried to get her to lay down with me but she wasn’t having that. However, after she left I decided to take a two-hour nap. How is that for a celebration, Lol!I guess that is what happens when you turn 57. No partying, no drinking, no carousing. Haha! I am going to tell a quick story on Joe. I was telling him that I was going on a diet starting Monday. I didn’t want to diet on my birthday but I was going to start the following day. He came to give me a hug goodbye since he was leaving to go play golf, and he said, “You feel good.” He should have just left it at that but of course, he didn’t.” “You have just the right amount of chunky.” WHAT! I am sure he thought that was a compliment. I told him that I was putting that on the blog. Just the right amount of chunky. Lol!!!If you saw the picture of me and Emersyn at her pre-school graduation then you already saw me in this outfit. I wanted to be comfortable because I knew that I would be stooping and picking her up. It is still a little chilly in the mornings so I decided to wear this short sleeve cardigan over a long-sleeved white button-up. This is a style that I see my DIL wear all the time and I always think it looks great on her but I forget to try it. Today, I took the plunge. Let me hear your thoughts.
Pearls, pearls, and more pearls. Pearls go with anything and everything. I have on my Priscilla earrings that match the Paris necklace. I didn’t wear the Paris because I wanted something a little longer. Instead, I went with the Lottie and even then I have on a necklace extender to make it longer for me. The Lottie is one of my favorites and it must be one of everyone else’s favorites too because it is currently on backorder. Lol! Put it on your “wish” list because you will want to get this necklace. I’ll let you know when it becomes available again. I wore this floral design Lucinda pearl bracelet the other day. It is rapidly becoming one of my favorites because it will go with anything, dressy or casual. The magnetic pearl bracelet is set in a silver-tone and it was a special purchase but there is the same bracelet but in gold-tone and it is called the Amanda.This one IS my favorite. I think this is my favorite item that I have gotten from Plunder. It is called the Ashley which is easy for me to remember since that is my daughter’s name. My daughter spells hers differently though. I like the spring colors and the dangling pearls. I actually have two parties open right now. I opened a new one but I forgot that the old one quite ready to close. Pick either one if you want to place an order. tania8 or tania9This is the first time I have worn these stripped ankle pants. They remind me of the seersucker look but they are just normal pants. I bought this pair at Old Navy a little while back. This type stripe just “looks” like summer to me. I like this look, it is casual and classic at the same time.
I love a nice fitted white shirt. This should be a wardrobe staple for everybody. You can wear it alone with pants, shorts, or skirts and then you can wear it under a sweater, cardigan, and blazers. It is so versatile that you can wear it all year long. I suggest buying a nicer shirt since it is a classic that will last you. Unless you are a messy eater and drop food on you all the time like some male person that lives in my house but shall remain nameless. Lol! Here is a nice plus size shirt that I couldn’t get to show the picture.
The winner of the Plunder necklace giveaway from last Friday is Maureen!!! Maureen, I sent you an email letting you know that you are the winner. Just send me your address and the necklace will be on its way.
