Years ago, we updated our stove and refrigerator in the kitchen. I’m not sure what we did with the stove, but the fridge was still good, so we put it in a covered area near the pool. We usually keep drinks and popsicles in it for the kids, and it also serves as an over-flow for my regular refrigerator.
We always have a lot of hamburger meat on hand since he will buy 1/2 of a cow and have the entire thing ground into hamburger meat. When I was cleaning out my freezer in the house, I moved some of the excess meat to that refrigerator so that I could put some vegetables, rolls, and pizzas in the house. Joe has been going to the store for me lately, so I asked him to buy me a roast for me to put in my Ninja Foodie. (I LOVE THAT THING!!!) When he came home, he said that they were on sale, so he brought FOUR roasts back. I fixed one, and then I put the other three in those air-tight sucking bags, and I put them in the freezer outside.
Yesterday, my son called me and told me that he wanted to put some veggies in that freezer. I told him to go ahead that there still should be plenty of room. He called me back in just a few minutes to say to me that our refrigerator had quit working, and everything in it was ruined. UGH! Aside from the money lost and the sheer amount of food lost, it stunk so badly that I thought that I was going to be sick. So, does this make your day seem a little better? LOL! Oh well, I see a new refrigerator or freezer in my future.
This dress is perfect for almost anything. I ordered it at the same time that I ordered the loungewear and pajamas from QVC. This is by the brand Cuddl Duds, and you can bet that anything by that brand is soft and comfortable. This dress did not disappoint me in that category. The dress comes in several solid colors, but I love the way the stripes run different ways, and I think that it creates a flattering look. The faux-wrap tie helps to create a waistline, and I sure need all of the help that I can get.
This dress has elbow-length sleeves, and it hits me right below the knee. I am wearing a medium for size references, and I am 5’6″ tall and weigh between 155-160 at any given time. (If this virus doesn’t go away soon, I’ll have to adjust that number upward) This is a super soft stretchy knit, and it is machine washable. Here is the link to the dress.
I wanted to show you how roomy the dress is before you tie the belt. It is up to you how tightly you want to tie the sash.
I am wearing my Avi large silver hoops from Kendra Scott. These have become my go-to earrings when I want to wear silver. I loved them so much that I bought another pair in gold when I caught them on sale. I didn’t get a good photo of my Rue cuff bracelet, so you will have to take my word for it that it is dainty and adorable.
Who likes adding a pop of color to their outfit? I love doing that, and I will usually add the pop of color with my shoes, my jewelry, a purse, or a scarf. Today, I decided to wear these bright red espadrilles from J. Crew Factory because they are cute and comfortable. Plus, I wanted to wear a heel to give my legs some added length. These shoes are a thick canvas with a jute sole. The shoes run true to size, and I am wearing my usual size 9 in them. These shoes come in a couple more colors, including navy, and they are on sale for under 35.00. You will wear these wedge shoes all summer long. Here is the link.
So, who doesn’t like adding a pop of color? I know that everyone is not comfortable wearing bright red on their feet. So, I wanted to show you how different colored shoes can change the look of the outfit. These are the slingback Vionic espadrilles in a navy that I wore in yesterday’s post. I bought these shoes because I had heard so many people talk about their love for Vionic shoes. I am still debating whether I like them or not, I like the style, but I can find a similar style cheaper. These shoes are supposed to have good arch support, so that is why they are more costly. So. for those who need good arch support, here is the link. For those who don’t need extra support, here are a couple of shoes that I found yesterday.
I hope you enjoyed today’s post. I am sorry that I didn’t get to answer a lot of the comments yesterday. Between the freezer fiasco and me trying to work on our income taxes, I was up to my eyeballs in work. I don’t foresee it being any better today. Ugh! Brighten my day, if you’ve heard any good news, then please share it with me and everyone else. I know that we can all use a dose of good news!
