Life is Good!

Posted on: December 1, 2013

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thankgiving and Weekend! 

I loved spending time with my family and that my husband has so much time off with us,

one of the best perks of his new job! 

Linking up with Visible MondayIMG_2570This is what I wore to brave the mall on Black Friday…

We actually completed most of our shopping online Thursday evening … My dear husband did make a run out early Friday morning to pick up a few things and I am over the moon happy that we completed all the major presents for our four children from the Black Friday sales and only have stocking stuffers left to get.  In all the years, this is a first to accomplish such a feat so early in the season! 


We all braved the mall mostly for fun, but my daughter and I did break away from the guys in search of jeans and pants for her.  She had great success at Kohl’s buying two pairs of jeans and two pairs of twill pants to wear for work. With Kohl’s cash she earned and some from my online purchases she will be buying another pair of jeans in bootcuts online.  She discovered that she really needs to buy shorts instead of regulars. She never noticed it before because she always wore 3 to 4 inch heels.  We had fun discovering which looked best on her and with the weight gain from college, this was the first time  she faced the jeans challenge…


You’ve seen everything here before, excpet the scarf which I purchased at Love Culture last month. 

These grey Isaac Mizrahi boots and jacket I got at the Wilson’s outlet are definitely making the trip to Ireland next October , as they are so versatile and quickly becoming a favorite…

Dear Readers, Did you brave the malls on Black Friday or did you take advantage of the online sales?  Can you believe that I placed an order on Thursday on for bedding and dishes that were high school senior requested for his college dorm and they arrived Saturday morning!!!!  


I am so grateful for Holidays to give us a chance as a family to just hang out and laugh together.

I am grateful that my cold was better and I felt up to cooking on Thursday…

I am grateful that Friday my youngest spent hours alone with his dad, while the rest of us slept in…

I am grateful that my daughter and I had time alone to shop together and get that dreaded pants thing accomplished with no tears, just fun and laughter!!!!

I am grateful for my husband’s great success on his first week on the job after training ; we are so delighted with 3 days off and a holiday that he still had a good week!!! 

I am grateful that my husband is happier than I’ve seen in a long while!

My friend looked all over for grey boots—yours are great! Love the jacket too–I’m sure this is a go-to outfit for you–so versatile!
We did the small business shopping rather the mall. So refreshing–but my kids are older so it’s easier! xoxo

The jeans are such a great fit and you look lovely in blue! Good work on the shopping…I still have some decisions to make. have a wonderful week!

Lucky you to be completely done! We are also done and celebrating!!! yay to no more fighting for parking spaces and sitting back and enjoying the season 🙂

Congrats on getting your shopping done so early! You look great too, those gray boots are amazing. Thanks for sharing with Visible Monday.

If I’m not done with Christmas Shopping before Thanksgiving I start to have panic attacks LOL. You look beautiful and I’m SO in love with those boots!


Oh, nice boots Tracey. I love their color and they go so well with the outfit you designed. FASHION item FRIDAY will be on this Friday (thurs actually). I’d love to see you there again. Have a great week! ♥

Tracey, you are one brave soul (shopping on black Friday). Although, you are now done and I’m not so there you go. Quite like you shopping choice of outfit, nice comfy yet very stylish boots and fun colorful jeans and accessorized with that herringbone patterened scarf was wonderful.

Love this outfit!

You are braver than I am….I don’t even pretend to go out on Black Friday! It’s awesome that you have all the shopping finished though!

We just got back from Ireland and it is beautiful!

Good look! And especially on you! Those Mizrahi boots deserve their place in your heart. I have a black burn out trench coat from his Target collab of years ago … still have compliments on it when it gets out and about.
