Here it is Monday again, a brand new week is ahead of us. Do you have any plans? I looked at my schedule, and it is pretty pitiful. No “real” plans, just several things that need to be done eventually. I will be starting back up with my exercise routine on Monday, my instructor (drill sergeant) has been away for a couple of weeks. I need to start making plans for a Fundraising Workshop that I will be doing for the GFWC Virginia Conference in August, and Sandy and I need to start making and planning the decorations for Vacation Bible School at the end of July. A small pain of panic set in when I read in the church bulletin that bible school was only 3 weeks away! WHAT!!!! We haven’t even started planning.In an effort to free up my afternoons, I have been trying to write more of my blog in the mornings, instead of sitting and surfing on the computer. Another time saver would be to already have my supper/dinner menu planned out and most of the prep work done ahead. Crock Pot meals would be wonderful, but I can never find any that I really like, that are healthy. SO, I am asking you gurls to give me your best recipe to try. I learned a long time ago that recipes from word of mouth are the very best. I love cookbooks, but their recipes do not always taste the best. The pictures in a cookbook will make my mouth water, but in reality they are sometimes bland. You can tell from my clothing that I am not into bland. Haha
Sorry for the foggy photo. This humidity is playing havoc with my camera lens. I clean it off, and before it can take all the pictures, it is fogged up again. Today’s outfit is my run around town and go grocery shopping outfit. Shorts and a t-shirt, pretty simple, huh? This is what I was wearing the day I filmed my makeup routine, and skincare routine. If you have not already watched my makeup routine video, go here for the application, and go here for the written description and product links.I can just see my mother cringing, she will think I have on too many necklaces. Lol! I only have on THREE. They are all three by Plunder Designs, the short one is called the Ada. I got this in my start up kit, but this is the first time I have worn it. I normally like the longer necklace styles, but I just thought I needed something extra this time. I like that it fills in the “void,” and the saying on the plate says, “Bless Your ❤️.” Us southern girls use this term a lot, and each time it has a different meaning. For example:
In the most loving term, such as “You are the sweetest thing, Bless your heart!”
In the what were you thinking term, “Did you really think those pants went with that top? “Bless your heart!”
In the I am so sorry for your loss term, “I really hate that your goldfish got eaten by your cat.” “Bless your heart.”
In the way that says you are as dumb as a rock, “Did you really think it was a good idea to not wear sunscreen while you were fishing?” “Bless your heart.”
You just have to listen for the subtle tone changes, and sarcasm. Haha The rest of these necklaces are some that are special purchases. They are only available till they sell out. Don’t make me have to say, “You missed out on those two necklaces? Bless your heart.” I think that would fall under term number 4. LOL!!! These necklaces are the Stevie, and the Trudy. The v-neck t-shirt is one that I picked up at the GAP, but you can buy one of those anywhere. Except maybe at a gas station, but you know what I mean.Don’t you just love these fringe sandals? They are too cute! I bought these at the QVC overstock store in town, and they are by Sole Society. They are the softest fawn color, and they are a suede material. Please ignore my less than beautiful feet.
The from behind shot.These shorts are a pair I picked up at TJ Maxx. I think (I couldn’t read the label very well) that they are by Kenji. You would think they would want their label to be made in a way that you could read it. I liked the color and the print immediately. Joe even gave them a thumbs up! Woohoo!!!
Printed Shorts: Lily Pulitzer | Michael Kors | Exact Shorts Beckley decided to join me for the last few photos. He sure looks motley! But he is mine, and I think he is gorgeous. He unfortunately has an allergy that takes a toil on his skin and hair. “Bless His Heart.”
