Can You Keep A Secret?

DSC_0006Another version of Jeans and Pearls. As you can tell, I like pairing the two together. Pearls can dress up any outfit, and I always conjure up Jackie O in my mind when I put on a strand. Never mind that she never wore pearls like these, I like to think that she would have approved. I have on a British Khaki jacket on that I picked up at T J Maxx. This is one of the season’s hot items. The olive green color is everywhere. Here is a similar one.DSC_0012I even decided to put on a vintage pearl ring. The great thing about a lot of vintage rings is that they are adjustable. You can wear the ring on any finger. This purse is old, old, old. Look at the wear on the edges. I don’t mind at this at all, I like to think of it as character. How cute are these boots? These are Marc Fisher’s and I got them at the QVC overstock store in town for $25.00. Yep, that’s right, $25.00!!! Here they are on sale at QVC, just not for $25.00.DSC_0015High waist jeans. Do you like them or hate them? Isn’t high waisted just another name for the dreaded “Mom Jean”? I thought that everybody at work would really notice them, but not one person said a thing. I even tucked in the shirt, even thought that is not a trend that I look forward to returning. My tummy area prefers to be camouflaged.
DSC_0010Now for the secret. I have a blog, but since you are reading this, you probably already know that. The thing is….I didn’t tell anybody I knew about the blog, except my sister who had to help me with WordPress. Not my husband, children, mother, or friends. I was afraid they would make fun of me. I had decided that if I was still blogging come January 1st, that would be my New Year’s Resolution. I should have known my sister could not contain herself. She told my mother and daughter-in-law during a recent visit, and they told two friends, and so on. My husband had been noticing pictures of me, and he knows I hate having my picture taken, so he was really confused. He finally asked point blank, “what are you doing”? I fessed up, and he was actually relieved. I’m not sure what he thought I was doing. LOL! Here is the funny thing, my children know. I’m not sure when they found out, but they know. I decided to tell my daughter and see how she would react. I was talking to her last night, she lives in Alaska, and told her to go to this blog called 50. That’s all I got to say, she finished my sentence. “Is not old.com”, she said. I was stunned. How did she already know? Seems like one day she was on Instagram, and my picture popped up as someone she might like to follow. I think it was her time to be stunned. She said she couldn’t figure out why someone would be using my picture. She went to the blog, and figured out what I was doing, and also the fact that I had kept it a secret. She of course remedied that, by calling her two brothers, her best friends from here, and her friends in Alaska. My three angels then came up with an elaborate plan to “call me out” at Christmas, when we would all be together. Now that my little darlings know about the blog, I am now free to include them in it. Haha, looks like I am going to get the last laugh. And by the way, secrets always have a way of coming out.
