73 Degrees!

Day: Sunday, January 30, 2011

Today I feel: Great! We were having spring like weather and it's was just plain gorgeous. I had a great weekend (Saturday especially)...and it's just been lovely.

Most memorable thing that occurred today: Me and my Levi taking a walk in the neighborhood..what a relaxing experience.

Best part of my day: My whole day was just the best!

Something I am looking forward to tomorrow: Well I can tell you what I'm not looking forward to tomorrow--the rain. We're expecting rain and only 60 degree temps. The rain is to continue thru to Wednesday. So not fun.

Until ... later

Daily Outfit

Day: Friday, January 28, 2011

Today I feel: A whole lot better! Minimal discomfort and I'm even off the meds!

Today was such a beautiful day outside. It was like 60 and sunny. Tomorrow is suppose to be even warmer!!! Ya!! I felt free, peaceful and at ease. I think my outfit said it all.

Most memorable thing that occurred today: My daughter and I having this discussion about her wanting to go to a party tomorrow night. The party starts at 9:30 pm. The teen having the party is a senior and that means older teens (possibly young adults) being at this party. On top of that...she's like her ride (another teen's mother) will be picking them up from the party at 1 AM?!?!

So I'm like no. It's past curfew and she's only 16! I'm not sure of other parents, but I just couldn't allow my daughter to be at this type of party, and, come home after 1 AM.

She's not too happy--ya know, she thinks it's the end of the world now. But oh well...she'll get over it.

Best part of my day: Being able to eat french fries!!!

Something I am looking forward to tomorrow: Well...of course the weather. Also movies (minus the popcorn), and hanging out with friends.

Until tomorrow...

Black and Blue

Day: Thursday, January 27, 2011

Today I feel: Good. Still taking meds for my discomfort (wisdom teeth), but all in all...pretty good.

I had taken a look at myself this morning and noticed that I almost succeeded in wearing all black today. My jean skirt saved me! I'm not sure what it is--I'm just attracted to dark clothing. I'm not, by far, a dark person; nor do I think that wearing black slims me in any way. I just think it's a safe haven for me. Anyway...like I've said in past posts, I am working on that. Maybe by the spring/summer months I'll fall into the 'I can't stay away from color' mood.

Most memorable thing that occurred today: It was sunny, and 50 degrees.

Best part of my day: Going to the mall and purchasing a maxi skirt out of Charlotte Russe for $2.50!! Obviously it was a mistake, but if the tag shows $2.50....I get it at $2.50. I was told that the skirt is originally priced at $18.90!

Something I am looking forward to tomorrow: Well, it is Friday. I'm thinking about resting up...that's all. In the weeks to come, my weekends will become more eventful.

Until tomorrow...

A Little Bit of Color....OH...and I'm Back!

Target skirt & blazer: Fossil watch: Old Navy tights: Shirt?? Marshall's I think? Forever21 shoes (my ultimate favs!):

Day: Wednesday, January 26, 2011

Today I feel: Pretty good. My mouth isn't as sore...I actually went into work today. Not bad. I even added a little color to my outfit. Trust me, I was so close to wearing all black...again. I don't know if I'll succeed for tomorrow however. Guess we'll see!

Most memorable thing that occurred today: No one really even attempting to speak to me. They knew what was up. It was peaceful and I got a lot of work done. I hope the same for tomorrow.

Best part of my day: Coming home and being able to eat clam chowder!!

Something I am looking forward to tomorrow: Hopefully being able to eat something else good :-)

Until tomorrow...

Day: Sunday, January 16, 2011

Today I feel: I'm in a relaxed mood today. You can tell from my attire. But it's a Sunday, and I don't have anything to do. I had taken my Levi to the doggie park and now he's relaxing in his OWN bed.

Now I can relax as well...

Most memorable thing that occurred today: Well this morning it was watching Levi just run...and run...and you could see that's exactly what he needed. He was so happy.

Best part of my day: Even though the day is just beginning...I'm already relaxed and I see that happening all day. We are having take-out and that's that.

Something I am looking forward to tomorrow: Waking up!

Until then...

Day: Friday, January 14, 2011

Today I feel: Good because it was casual jean Friday. But a little fatigued. The office was a bit hectic. Lots of things needed to be done immediately. I did get most of them done.

But when I got home, I decided not to cook. My daughter and I headed to the Golden Corral for dinner. She loved it...I just had to watch what I put on my plate. Everything was good though.

Most memorable thing that occurred today: There was this older, grey haired man at Golden Corral who had so much swag!!! I wish I would've taken a picture of him. He had his murse (man purse) and grey cowboy hat, and this hot black and grey wool coat. It may sound crazy, but he was dressed really well. He even had both of his ears pierced! Wah!!!

Best part of my day: Getting off work. Getting home safely. Yes, we still have icy roads. They're  a lot better than the past 4 days, but they still exist.

Something I am looking forward to tomorrow: Going to the movies to go see the Green Hornet, then going to watch the Falcons kick the Packers butt!!!

Until tomorrow...

Day: Thursday, January 13, 2011

Today I feel: Lucky, fortunate, pleased...

All of these feelings plus more. I've had a good day. I've had the chance to work from home again and not tackle the icy roads. BUT....I have to say that a lot of that ice has melted now. The sun was out. The temps were about 37 degrees. Nice to see the pavement again.

Most memorable thing that occurred today: Getting out, in the sun and having fun with my daughter all day basically.

Best part of my day: Just finally getting outside and accomplishing some things.

Something I am looking forward to tomorrow: I would say Friday....but my whole week thus far has been great! Even though I worked from home....I still didn't have to go into the office.

Until Tomorrow...

Chicken Caprese

Chicken Caprese
for full recipe look under 'Recipes' tab

Day: Tuesday, January 11, 2011

Today I feel: Discouraged. Considering the winter storm we had basically crippled the Atlanta Metro areas. Schools have been closed for 2 days and will be closed tomorrow as well. My office has been closed for 2 days, but I work from home anyway.

The cities and counties just do not have enough plow trucks to go around to salt/sand the neighborhoods/roads. It's horrible outside. We haven't received mail, or UPS/FedEx or anything because of the icy conditions. Due to our temps not really rising above freezing....the ice shall stay.

In the meantime I've been busy around the house and catching up on my cooking. My daughter is really enjoying that!

Most memorable thing that occurred today: Me driving to the grocery store, in what was suppose to be a 2 minute drive but had taken 10 min, getting to the grocery store parking lot only to find a huge ice skating rink, and then going inside the store to find hardly any of the staples like bread, milk, lunch meat etc...

This ice needs to melt!!

Best part of my day: Preparing the meal shown above with my daughter. She's too much!

Something I am looking forward to tomorrow: Another day of working from home and watching the news to see what's going to happen the next day.

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Nut Muffins
Really good recipe I found on allrecipes.com. Very easy to make. The only thing I didn't add were the Almonds & extra sugar (suppose to be added on top). These are yummy!

Day: Sunday, January 9, 2011

Today I feel: Like I'm Paula Deen, only I'm not as great a cook as she...not even a comparision of sorts. I've been cooking, baking...you name it! I started off cooking a big breakfast (no photos) with walnut pancakes, turkey bacon, cheese eggs, and juice (freshly squeezed orange juice). Then I wanted to make these Chocolate Chocolate Chip Nut Muffins I saw on allrecipes.com. Talk about YUMMY!! Lunch was a turkey cheddar melt with sauteed onions and mushrooms (no pic). My daughter didn't want any veggies...I let it go since dinner will be loaded with them. Later on I'll be making a homemade chicken pot pie. I'll try to add pics. I must feel really good. I never really cook THIS much.

It may be the weather too. It's cold outside and I really didn't have any plans on leaving the house. I left out earlier to get gas and run to Home Depot. Home Depot was a nightmare. I guess everyone is getting ready for this winter storm that's approaching us later on.

Best part of my day: Looking at the face of my daughter while eating all that good food...it was priceless :)

Something I am looking forward to tomorrow: The snow...the snow only. And, I mean very little snow, only so my Levi can play a little bit in it.

Also, snow=no work and no school for the kiddies! Even if it's 2-4 inches!!

Until tomorrow...

Love The Weekends!!

Old Navy Coat: NY&Co Sweater & Jeggings: Aldo Shoes: H&M Bag: Necklace My Creation

Day: Saturday, January 8, 2011

Today I feel: Happy, joyful....it's the weekend! Had fun earlier with my daughter today...a little shopping. Now I'm getting ready for girls night out (movie night).

Notice how I wore something of color, and bright at that?? Mmmhmm I'm working on it.

Most memorable thing that occurred today: Me paying $80 for $8 brows done on my daughter.

Caught your attention huh? What happened ... I had taken my daughter to get her brows done, when the person was finished she immediately started working on someone else's brows and asked a co-worker to take my payment.  The co-worker charged my card $80!! As she was putting the receipt down for me to sign, I saw the $80 charge and was like WAH??!!! She looked at me like nothing was wrong. I was like ...seriously, you really charged me $80 for an $8 job?? Well they couldn't cancel out the charge so they had given me $72 back in cash. Crazy right?! It's like pay attention next time.

Best part of my day: Besides getting the $72 back in cash from the previous incident and not having to dispute a charge ... and so on.... the rest of my day was fun. I can't even narrow it down. I look forward to tonight.

Something I am looking forward to tomorrow: All the snow that's supposedly coming in (3-4 inches). We had a white Christmas, and my doggie Levi totally enjoyed that time in the snow. So I'm looking forward ...we can play in the snow again.

Day: Friday, January 7, 2011

Today I feel: Good. It's Friday. The weekend has started. And, due to the fact that we could wear jeans at work today, I was really feeling good.

It's funny, the coat I'm wearing was originally my daughter's. She got it as a gift some years back. Well, because she had such a growth spurt (arms are like E.T. long...), she could no longer wear it. I wasn't going to just give it away, so now it's all mine.

And, because the cardi is so long, I had to actually pin the darn thing up with a brooch. It turned ok. I pinned it up only while I was wearing the coat. But I made it work.

Best part of my day: 4:30 pm Baby!!!!

Something I am looking forward to tomorrow: Well...movies, a little shopping, and having fun with the girls.
