I don’t think that I’ve ever quoted Woody Allen before, but I am today. A couple of days ago, I shared with all of you that I am a goal-oriented person. I like to set goals, and I love celebrating when I finally hit that goal. The number of email subscribers was one of the goals, and I was 2600 short. That is not the case today…
The Woody Allen quote is, “If you want to make God laugh, tell Him your plans.” When I scheduled my post for yesterday, I had 12,357 email subscribers. When I woke up yesterday morning, I had already started getting emails and messages saying that they didn’t get an email about my blog post. I went to my blog and checked my post, and that is when I noticed that my number of subscribers had changed. I went from 12,357 to 1. Yes, you read that correctly, ONE!!!
There were many calls, then a lot of tears when I finally realized that the chances of getting my email list back were dim. I have an old list that I used years ago that I have had to unarchive, so that is at least something. If you are reading this and had unsubscribed from my blog previously, I am sorry; you can feel free to unsubscribe again. If you were an email subscriber, please click HERE and re-subscribe again. I am sorry for the inconvenience. Be sure to read all the way to the bottom; I have an incentive to those who subscribe to my blog from 04-28 thru 05-09.
BTW, if you didn’t see yesterday’s post, please check it out by clicking here. I don’t want you to miss out on anything!!!
Because I had such a no good, very bad day, I decided that I needed to brighten my mood, which means adding COLOR! I am a huge fan of Cobalt Blue, and this sweater is adorable with its white and light blue trim. This sweater speaks to the “preppy” Tania that doesn’t get to come out and play very often.
The sleeve length is great on this sweater, and I love that they hide some of my upper arms. The sweater is made from very nice material, and it is of great quality. I am wearing a size medium in this sweater, and I think that it fits me great. I don’t feel self-conscious at all, and you can’t see my extra rolls.
The new Spring Arrivals from Kendra Scott are so stinking cute!!! The turquoise color is gorgeous on the Jack Earrings and the Tessa Multi-Strand necklace. I also added two Rebecca stretch bracelets, one in White howlite and one in Variegated Turquoise, and the Natalie hinged bangle bracelet.
Before you fuss about my shoe choice, I had intended to have a big Talbots Try-On post for today, and I wore these shoes since they were from Talbots. I do have a couple more items from Talbots to show you, but I was so wrapped up in blog issues that I didn’t have time to post all of them at once. I guess you will get to see those later.
The navy H style leather sandals are a great basic summer shoe. They don’t have many bells and whistles, but they are the kind of shoe that you will repeatedly wear since they are great with almost anything.
These relaxed chinos are so cute! It seems like I’ve said that a lot in this post. Lol! I love the printed paisley design of the pants and the relaxed fit of the pants. Since the model styled these pants with white, I wanted to wear blue to see how they would look with that color.
I am wearing a size 8 in these pants, and I think they fit me great.
See this laugh; I’ve learned that you have to learn to laugh when things go wrong. That doesn’t mean that I didn’t throw a fit first; it just means that I have done all that I can do, and you have to laugh at the whole absurdity of the mess. It has taken me FIVE years to build that email list, and it was gone in the space of a second.
SO, I am having an EMAIL SUBSCRIBER drive. Everyone who signs up for my emails from yesterday, the 28th, through Sunday (Mother’s Day), the 9th of May, will be entered into a drawing. I will be giving away 2 – $50.00 gift cards or Paypal cash each week. All you have to do is subscribe, and you are entered.
Secondly, please call your best friend, mom, sister, aunt, cousin, next-door neighbor, co-worker, and any other woman you think would enjoy this blog and tell them to follow and subscribe. Thanks so much; I appreciate all of your help!!!
If you have not signed up for my emails, JUST DO IT ALREADY!!! Here is the link!
