Burgundy & Grey

Posted on: February 17, 2014

Burgundy and Grey have been a favorite color combo of mine since my teen years…

It never disappoints me…

I apologize for the poor lighting on these photos and the fact that my young photographer neglected to notice that my purse flap was open… oooops….


These are my burgundy paisley embossed skinny cords paired with my ebay purchased poncho, black long sleeve t-shirt and Issaac Mizzrahi boots via QVC.  It was a beautiful 60 degree Valentine’s Day….


I rather like this shorter poncho with the fringe for my petite height , especially to wear with knee high boots.


My husband and I waited until Saturday night to celebrate Valentine’s Day, so as not to be interrrupted by any calls from his sales team.  My husband’s boss actually offered to take the calls for the night so we could enjoy it, but as I mentioned I hate crowded restaurant holidays.  We ended up having a wonderful dinner at Ruth Chris Steakhouse , another wonderful experience…. Having gone there on our anniversary made twice in exactly 30 days….I felt rather spoiled at the luxury .

I hope you all had a wonderful Valentine’s Weekend!!!

Dear Readers, after losing a few pounds I was disappointed at gaining them back from my fabulous Valentine’s dinner… I woke up Sunday and weighed myself and immediately turned on the Rockin Body DVD and am ready to give you my review of the first program called Groove and Moove, which was just 15 minutes long…


For a woman with ADD sometimes learning new dance moves is difficult in connecting my body to the words or visuals, but I kept up just fine with this.  I only needed one adaptation when it came to a move that was similar to a lunge as that doesn’t work for my knee injured in my teen years from ice skating… So, I did the adaptation Shaun T made sure to point out , not going as deep into the lunge.  I also had a little trouble getting my body to do both the shoulder shimmy and leg movements as my body wanted to do one or the other not both… Other than that I kept up really well and had a lot of fun with it.  I sweated like crazy and downed a bottle of water afterwards.  I also have been feeling it all day in a good way from my back to upper thighs, shoulders and upper abs….  Tomorrow the suggested workout is to do that one again and add in another one as well… I think I may just stick with this one for another day…

Oh, I also saw Winter’s Tale Saturday night after our lovely dinner and have to tell you that both my husband and I agreed it was the quality of a Hallmark movie and would have been better to wait for Redbox instead of spending  movie theater prices…


I am grateful for a wonderful weekend and the relaxation anf fun of  fine dining 

I am grateful that my husband sat next to me at the table (closer) rather than across and that he looked around the room and noticed all but two couples did the same…

I am grateful for the entertainment our 18 and 13 year old sons provided after our night out, watching them play Kinect Sports on Xbox…

I am grateful that my dear daughter received her first accpetance to graduate school, Boston College (where my husband is from)

Those are “your” colors, and, yes, the short poncho is the perfect proportion for you for that outfit. Very nice!

Like your outfit. That poncho does look good on you. I am excited to hear about your dance video! If you dont mind me asking where to purchase it? I mentioned that my little grand daughters are currently staying with me. I turned the radio on in my kitchen yesterday afternoon (we had changed it to a station they like) and a song came on and they both ran in there and we all danced all around and just laughed. That’s my fav kind of exercise…….but I am getting to old for anything to fast pased, ya know? Thanks for the update. Have a great day!

Great colors! I really love these burgundy pants and those fabulous boots. It sounds like you had a lovely dinner with your hubby too. I like it when I see couples sitting close in a pick up truck. It’s cute 🙂
