And Then the Sun Came Out

Today the sun came out; after 2 days of rain...no pics to show you how happy I was.

Yesterday it was still drizzling & it was very cold. I actually had to pull out the turtleneck. So the pics you see are from Tuesday.

Now if only we can warm up just a bit....I don't care for 39-40 degree temps at all.

With the Thanksgiving holiday and Black Friday....it's just been one crazy holiday weekend. I know I say crazy--it was fun--but hectic at the same time. I'm so glad things have slowed a bit. Now I can get back to my reading, blogging, & catch up on some TV shows as well.

As far as my outfits? You know me...I keep it simple and casual. I did go out one night but did not take a pic of that outfit--bad me...

Feature Friday: Marley Simone & SWOON

Meet Sandy (Marley Simone)...


I stumbled upon her site a few weeks back and can honestly say...I've enjoyed every post.
She's a stylist who's super creative with a lot of personality.



I'm sure you all will enjoy browsing through her site.

As promised...
The 2nd feature is Jeeda (Swoon)...


I love her looks, especially the cute & casual jean ensembles. She can also rock some color! So do stop by her blog as well.



I browse through so many blogs on a daily basis. I have much more to share with you all. Sometimes it's just really hard to choose. There are so many unique, and creative fashion bloggers out there. But, each Friday, I'll definitely try to share with you a new feature.

...
Hope you all enjoyed your Thanksgiving!
Have a safe weekend!

Busy Saturday Only...

Let me just tell you-- I totally enjoyed my Sunday. Nothing but relaxation... and I didn't even have to cook.

But, my Saturday was a different story. I had tons of errands to run during the day (including the Old Navy run) and by night I was having loads of fun at my girl's birthday party.

And what did I wear?

Coffee Talk: The Blame Game...


We blame people for a lot of things don't we? Sometimes even on a daily basis. We blame people for doing things, or not doing things...for thinking all of the time, or for not thinking at all.

What people don't realize is that when you blame someone for something, you are taking away any acceptance of them as a person.

Ok, here's my opinion...
We all have these irrational thoughts, in which we're caught up in anger and neurotic behavior. But you have to think about this...erroneous beliefs are beliefs and defenses we build up and replay with anger so that we don't have to know the truth about ourselves.

Here's something else, irrational thoughts are crazy!! And they keep us in victim mode and cause us to avoid responsibility for our OWN actions.

You want to know how you can achieve some form of happiness in life? Well--break into your negative thinking for starters. Stop assuming and running with it. There may be other reasons why things happen.

Those who project blame/accusations often feel a hidden stigma and shame as possessing a disgraceful personality trait so they 'project' or transfer anger on others to distract themselves from knowing the truth about themselves.

And how do you know if you're projecting your anger on others? Judgments and anger about others' behavior are projection.

Blaming others...for some people, the 1st reaction to a problem is to find someone to blame. Blaming is a defense mechanism to avoid taking personal responsibility for the situation.

I believe that the people who always do the blaming, never get the sense of satisfaction of growth. And, by refusing to see their own errors, they remain STUCK.

You wonder why I've written this post? Because I am being blamed for something I didn't do. And I don't appreciate it. It also hurts considering where it's coming from; someone very close. However, I know that the accuser will never see any wrong doing behind their thoughts.

It's a lost cause...how sad.

Feature Friday: Carsedra (Sweets Tooth Desserts & Embracing the Real Me)

Meet Carsedra....
When I post something...it's always a pleasure to see what comment Carsedra has left for me.
She's always so sweet and kind.
Then I was like...wait a minute! She also has a blog! Two of them to be exact. The one that
caught my attention was her Sweets Tooth Dessert blog. As I read through each post...I could hear
myself saying, "Mmmm" & "Yum". Here are just some of the goodies she baked...



Pretty good huh?

Then I noticed she had another blog called Embracing The Real Me. This blog shows more of her stylish side. I love it! It's a fairly new blog; only a few months old...but I definitely can't wait to see what else she has under her sleeve.

Catching Up...

For the past few days, I've been catching up on all my TV shows (The Walking Dead, Nikita, Terra Nova), trying to finish a book (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo), still celebrating my birthday, and maintain the norm.

I've been busy. It's crazy! However, I still managed to snap some pics through it all. I have lots to share with you but, instead of me adding them all on one post, I'll add them generously throughout the rest of the week.
