50 IS NOT OLD | TOO MUCH STUFF TO DO AND NOT ENOUGH TIME | FASHION OVER 40So, yesterday was Father’s Day, and I hope everyone enjoyed the day, or at least that you survived the day. I couldn’t wait to give Joe his Father’s Day present, so I ended up giving it to him on Saturday night. I walked into the computer room and told Joe that I was going to give him his present early. He immediately started protesting, saying that we don’t buy each other presents for these type things and that now he felt bad that he didn’t buy me something for Mother’s Day. I told him to chill out, and that it wasn’t a huge present, so he didn’t have to fret.

Then he pulled out a pack of underwear, and he looked a little less happy, but he kept on looking in the bag. Lol! Then, he finally got to the last item in the bag. He pulled out a black item and then he looked confused. As he started unfolding it, he busted out laughing. He had finally been able to read the “speedo” logo that was on the briefs. He couldn’t quit laughing, and said, “I can’t believe that you bought this. The gurls on the blog would love hearing about this.” That is when I told him that I had already shared that tidbit of information. Hahaha! He couldn’t believe it and went immediately to read my post for himself. He laughed and said that everyone had been quite as a mouse and that no one told my secret. I just think that no one in town reads my blog. Haha! Anyway, I forgot one crucial piece of information when I order the swimsuit…you should always go up one size. I did get a snicker after he tried them on, but they are going back to the store for a bigger size.

I went to church, out to eat with Joe and Emersyn, packed, and then traveled all day to go to Atlanta to visit my sister. By the time that I arrived in Atlanta and unpacked, I barely had time to throw these pictures up for a post before time to head off to bed. So, instead of talking, and talking, and talking, I am doing a shop the post so that you have the links to choose from. Here is the Adams necklace,

  1. Beautiful sweater and cute dress. I’m with a group in Anchorage and thought of your daughter in Alaska.

      Kaye, I hope you have a wonderful time in Alaska. The area there is gorgeous and the scenery is breathtaking.

  2. Love the outfit, but my email only has the link to the necklace. Where did you purchase the sweater?

    • Tania Reply

      The sweater is old, Gail. I linked to similar ones since I couldn’t link to that exact one. I bought it originally from Talbots outlet.

  3. Oh duh. Thanks! Wearing my new navy/coral floral sleeveless top from Loft that I just ordered after you posted it. Love it!

  4. Veteran swim mom here…do not size up on the speedos. The fabric stretches once wet and will continue to stretch over time. Of course if the “baggy britches” look is desired….. 😉 susie in the tundra.

  5. I like your new header. Pretty. It’s 10:30 pm & I finally read your blog. Things are changing because I used to read first thing. These days I’m busy from time I’m up until bedtime. It’s a good thing though. ?. Love the maxi dress. Enjoy your time with sister.

      As long as you read the blog, I don’t care what time it is. Lol!

  6. Love the new look of the blog-you are amazing. This dress is such a beautiful color is it something that is still available?

    Ha ha! I’m surprised that Joe was okay with exchanging the Speedo trunks for a bigger size. Will he wear them now?

    • Tania Reply

      When I took them back, they didn’t have the size that I needed. SO, for now, he is Speedo free. Lol!

  8. Miss this blog when it first came out but mesmerized by that necklace.

I would love to hear from YOU!
