Recovering....

I know, I know...it's only pink eye. However, I'm recovering just fine. The antibiotic prescribed works wonderfully. No more pain; very little redness. I should be back to 'normal' by Monday. Anyway, off to the movies I go. What am I going to see? Cowboys and Aliens. I'll have to check out the little blue people some other time. Enjoy your weekend people!!

Something New & Old


This little dress was a great gift from my mother; A vintage dress, with
these wonderful buttons down the back. The dress also use to have shoulder pads, but
those had to go of course.

I added the belt to give it some shape.


The best part is that the dress had never been worn. My mom still had the price tag on it. I guess she knew that she was never going to wear it and decided to save it for me. *smiles*

Coffee Talk: Avoiding Risks...

You ever think about, as women, we seem to always have an excuse on why we shouldn't take a risk? We give excuses that prevent us from our own successes.

Women give excuses to jusify why we won't be able to achieve a particular goal. These excuses are our fear of failure.

[light chuckle] Here are some I've used:
  • I don't have time
  • I don't know how
  • It will not work
  • I've tried this before
  • What will others think?
  • Am I smart enough to do this? (second guessing yourself)
There was time in my life when all I did was focus on the negative. How true is it that WE are our own worst critics. Eventually, however, I began to realize that I will totally regret not trying/doing something later in life.

These excuses prevent us from achieving THAT goal. If you want to succeed, then you must do whatever it is to make it happen for yourself.

I believe that when you begin making excuses for yourself, then you don't believe in yourself.

Recognize what you can do. Don't allow others to tell you that you can't. Fighting off excuses is a challenge. Think of it this way--successful people look past their excuses and stay clearly on their path. Like Nike...."Just Do It".

No Jean Friday...

On Fridays, my job allows their employees to wear jeans. Well, I opted out this time. Honestly, I only own one job appropriate pair of jeans. I don't see myself wearing them every single Friday. So I decided to wear khakis instead. You all know that my style is very casual anyway. I really don't 'dress up' for work. However, I believe I need to invest in at least a couple more pair of office appropriate jeans. The Gap is usually a great place to start; or New York and Company. We'll see...






Also, I will like to thank each of you who left super nice comments on my previous post. The floral shoes worn were really comfy and light on my feet.

Not a terrible blogger...

I've been so busy with life that I did not have the time to blog (or read all of my favorite sites). I'm slowly getting into the groove of things. I can honestly say that I've missed you all, and I know that I have a lot of "catch-up" reading to do.
