Thank you!

Charming Charlie Necklace : UO Top : H&M Skirt

Day: Monday, February 28, 2011

I just really wanted to thank all of you--for even taking the time to look at my blog. As I've stated many times, this blog was initially just my open diary & as a bonus, I posted an outfit or two for my friends.

Blogging has been, oddly, sort of fun. I'm glad I didn't give it up, despite what others have suggested...

So on that note, I hope all of you have a great evening!

Until tomorrow...
Take Care!

Another busy day...
My daughter had a casting call/photo shoot (I'll post behind the scenes shots tomorrow) in an area called Little Five Points in Atlanta, for a boutique named Gurl Props (gurlprops.com). This was our 1st time ever going there (Little Five Points). What an eclectic place. Full of unique people, music, great food, and the best vintage boutiques!

We were there for about 3 hours then we did a little shopping and left to get food.  Definitely going back; besides, should she get the job, we'll be going back every weekend for photo shoots anyway.

After eating I dropped my daughter off at a basketball game, at her high school, and I went to see Big Momma's: Like Father Like Son. It was ok...funny at times. If you go see it, you be the judge.

Now I'm relaxing. Tomorrow is all about relaxation and spa treatments!

Busy Saturday for you guys too??

Love to hear....

Undecided...

Top?? : Urban Outfitters Maxi Skirt & Bag

Day: Tuesday, February 22, 2011

Doesn't it seem as though my skirt couldn't decide whether it wanted to be olive green or black? I thought it was pretty cool.

Anyway, I had such a good day today. I had a great 3 mile jog, and dinner was leftovers; leaving me free from cooking. The weather was, again, gorgeous and I'm only looking forward to the beautiful weather ahead this week.

So what did you all do today?

Until tomorrow...

Easy Cooking...


Day: Monday, February 21, 2011

Just a simple, easy meal:

Baked, Herb Chicken & Garlic Asparagus

The chicken was easy. I had taken a whole chicken, added poultry seasoning, fresh thyme, fresh parsley, and other herbs then put into the oven for an hour and a half.

While the chicken was baking, I had taken a bunch of asparagus; cut and washed; 1 1/2 teaspoon of unsalted butter, 1 garlic clove, and 1 cut shallot added into one big pan and cooked on med-high heat for about 7 minutes.

There you go! Dinner!

Very easy meal.

Until tomorrow...

My daughter and I attended the step show and will attend some of the events for Bronner Brothers, but with all that going on...traffic is scary!!!

Day: Wednesday, February 16, 2011

Today I feel: Well...frustrated. And the story goes...
I received a call from my daughter around 2:10pm today telling me that she was in a fight after her last class of the day. Of course I wasn't too happy to hear about this. However, I asked her what happened and she proceeded with this story...

"Me, this girl, and this guy were goofing around in class (tripping each other) and when I got tired of it, as this girl was sticking her foot out to trip me, I stepped on her shoe. This girl started saying she would kick my a$$, so I told her bet. Then she kept saying stuff then I said I was going to kick her a$$. This girl kept talking about me and kept saying she was going to hit me, so I told her that I wish you would. Then this girl came after me and put her hands around my neck trying to choke me. I then pushed her away. Then the girl swung at me, so I swung back..."

So I had to go to the school to speak to her AP. AP says she was surprised and it all sounded so crazy...how it started. Well, I agreed that it was pretty dumb, and that my child should have laughed at the girl and let it go before it escalated. But that girl had no reason to put her hands on my child ... period! AP says both girls were at fault. I agreed but still felt that this girl went too far once she put her hands around my daughter's neck. AP didn't see my point of view. She kept saying how messed up the other student's side of face looked (apparently, during the fight, she was scratched up).

So now I have to wait until tomorrow to see what's going to happen to my daughter. Currently she is suspended for 3 days.

So that is my most memorable thing that occurred as well, there were no best parts of my day, and now tomorrow I'm looking forward to seeing what the principal has to say about all this and what he plans on doing.

**forced myself to not look as upset on my photos**

Until tomorrow...

Day: Sunday, February 13, 2011

Today I feel: Honestly...really good! It was a beautiful day outside; no work done today, only some window shopping, some light shopping and eating. I spent the whole day with my daughter today. She wanted me to take pictures of her earlier in the day; wearing an ... unlikely ensemble. So we went to my office--this is where she wanted to take the pictures--no one was working (it's a Sunday), so I said why not. This is just one of the many photos I'd taken. We mainly stuck to the copy room. The pictures were fun and many came out very good.

Most memorable thing that occurred today: Well....I turned down getting a Godiva drink today. This is rare for me to do so. I love those Chocolixir drinks! Especially the Caramel Milk Chocolate loaded with whip cream on top. Yummmmm

Best part of my day: I just enjoyed my whole day. Being outdoors, it was near 70 degrees, playing with the dog, spending time with my daughter...the entire day was full of love, laughter and joy.

Something I am looking forward to tomorrow: It's Valentine's Day! So I forsee a very loving filled day...just like any other day.

Until tomorrow...
Take Care!

Can this week be over already?!

ForeverXXI Sweater & Jean Skirt : Charming Charlie Cuff : Wedges??

Day: Wednesday, February 9, 2011

Today I feel: Overwhelmed! Again, another hectic day at the work place. Maybe it's not as hectic as I perceive it to be, and it's just my mindset. It's not like I'm not doing anything I haven't done before; it's not like my workload has expanded (it's about the same as usual); so it could be that it's a bit of all of the above??

I think I have days when I'm feeling good and there's nothing on my mind, then I have days when everything under the sun is on my mind and that's when I start to notice how great of a workload I have. Thus, making me believe I'm having a hectic day. I am going to have to start meditating more often. I know that meditation does help me out a lot.

Best part of my day: Coming home, relaxing, and eating ice cream.

Something I am looking forward to tomorrow: Working on having a better mindset on things. So I'm expecting to have a GOOD day tomorrow. By good I mean, getting up in the morning and easily finding something to wear; having the time to eat breakfast; and ending my day with nothing but good thoughts and preparing for a great night's sleep.

Until tomorrow...
Take Care!

Outfit and Dinner

H&M Turtleneck & Tights : Papaya Vest : Old Navy Skirt

Day: Tuesday, February 8, 2011

Today I feel: Today was actually a pretty broken day. Work was hectic, and I had so much to do after work, that my afternoon/night was even more chaotic. With me going to the grocery store, the post office, coming home to cook and work out....whew!

Again it was another day in which I really didn't feel like looking for something to wear (when I woke up this morning), so I chose whatever was simple and easy. I just wasn't feeling the day at all.

Most memorable thing that occurred today: Honestly-- nothing. I can't think of one thing that happened today which I would consider to be so memorable. It was a regular, busy day. Nothing was out of the ordinary.

Best part of my day: Well I decided to cook something different for dinner. I made stuffed herb pesto & mozzarella chicken (see below). It was pretty good and the look & smile on my daughter's face while eating it... it always makes me feel good when I see enjoyment on my girl's face.

Something I am looking forward to tomorrow: More sunshine....and a much less chaotic day.
