Miracles Abound….

Posted on: December 27, 2013

Dear Readers, I hope you all enjoyed your Christmas Holiday! We had an especially fantastic one this year as we received great news  the day before, when my husband accepted a promotion at his new company! 


Beginning Jan 2nd he will be the new Director of Sales and Marketing! 
A position he is perfect for and the best thing is that he will have hours that are even better for our family!


My tan leather is new and a gift from my dear husband, the lighting is late afternoon, so not good but it has some wonderful quilted details at the shoulders and waist.  


I took my long scarf and tied the ends to make it an infinity scarf and hid the knot by covering it with the other circle at the back of my neck…. nobody would even guess…

Dear Readers, I received  a few fashion related items ,but my favorite has to be the Ying Yang Necklace in Onyx and Mother of Pearl that I saw every week at BJ’s and my dear husband hunted down online when the store sold out,  to surprise me.  I love  the black faux fur vest he bought me as well… will debut those both soon…

Did you get any favorite fashion items or accessories????

I also must confess to you my dear readers, that these past two weeks I have gained 5lbs…. aaagghh! 


I am grateful that my husband got the final news on this job the day before he began his vacation and how over the top happy he has been ever since..

I am grateful for this holiday season and how we stop and think about what really matters in this lifetime.

I am grateful that my brother saw his friend leave something in his mailbox and went out to get it immediately as it was a suicide note and he was able to get his freind help before it was too late. 

I am grateful that I managed to totally surprise my oldest this Christmas and he can’t stop thanking me….

I am grateful that we are all heading to Busch Gardens Christmas town Saturday Night!

Well, no wonder you look so pretty and happy in these photos, Tracey! Congratulations to your husband on his promotion. And so thankful your brother helped his friend through a terrible crisis. I like reading good, refreshing news. Best wishes in the New Year!

Well, don’t feel bad about the 5 lb weight gain…I’ve done exactly the same! ha Going to eat the rest of my way through these Christmas cookies and enjoy our New Year’s feast…and then get back in the healthy swing of things and get these extra lbs I’ve gained back off… and hopefully more. Me and hubby both need to eat lighter and healthier this coming year.
You look amazing in your outfit. Sounds like you got some great gifts. Congrats to your husband on his promotion!

Congratulations to your husband! What a nice Christmas happening. That’s also amazing that your brother was able to help his friend! I’ve gained this past week also, about 3.5 pounds. I’m really looking forward to the new year and getting back on the healthy track.

Gains this time of year are so common,at least we are on top of it and have toolsto combat it.

Congratulations to your husband!
I can’t say much. I am up 2 lbs myself. Thank goodness I’m back to eating at home where I can control things.

Great gifts! I have a few pieces I’ll be sharing in the upcoming week, too.

2Lb gain is manageable. ..look forward to your gifts.

That’s fantastic news! I’m so happy for your family! How sweet of your husband to track down the perfect gift for you. Also, that’s so wonderful your brother was able to be there for a friend in need.
