I’m Back!

Posted on: August 27, 2014

I took a few days off blogging because, my Dear Readers. quite frankly, I wasn’t getting dressed..

I came down with terrible sciatica and a new symptom of my neck and back of head hurting like ****

Thank Goodness for our inversion back table because after several days of the neck thing not getting better, I hung upside down and voila it un-kinked (my made up word)  whatever was locked up… 

I probably should have gone to the Doctor, but quite frankly, I didn’t want to be given a prescription as I can’t stand them…


Today , I just couldn’t hold off any longer and had to wear my new lace dress.

I found this on clearance at Kohl’s a few weeks back when I was shopping with my daughter.

My goal was to style it in a casual way and not save it for just date nights.  


I really loved it when I added the vest…

A silver tassle necklace and a silver bracelet and watch finished the look off..


Here it is without the vest….

I think adding the silver flat sandals worked well to give this a more casual look as well…


I could so imagine this with strappy heels for a date night look….

And don’t get me started on Fall options….

Speaking of that my Dear Readers, I think for Fall I am going to add a blog feature once a week of taking one of my Summer outfits and switching it up for cooler temps…Of course with the Ireland trip that probably won’t start until November….


I am grateful that my daughter made it to Boston today and called me to keep her company when two sets of shuttles came and she didn’t find the one she needed…

I am grateful for a funny moment with my youngest who is now the only one at home…We walked up to the grocery store and on the way back, I was just in a daze pushing the cart down the sidewalk.  Two teen boys whizzed by us on skateboards and then I heard my 14 year old say to himself,  “yes , my Mom is crazy.”  I snapped to and realized I hadn’t left the cart at the store… LOL.. I giggled and said , “Well that’s how you know your mother really does have ADD… We laughed the rest of the way home… Upon putting the bags on the counter my son turned to me and said, ” Well if you have a disorder, you might as well learn to laugh about it!”  Right on, my dear Son!!!!!

I am grateful that my husband is having such wonderful success this month in sales that he won an Ipad..

I am grateful that we are on target to save for October bills for when he is in Ireland..

I am grateful that my son is coming home from VCU for Labor Day weekend.

I am grateful that my guys are all going to head to Boston to move my daughter into her apartment, as I am not going for that long ride with sciatica…

I am grateful for the flare up of sciatica, no I have not lost my mind…. It got me to walking an hour a day and a 3lb weight loss so far…Remember I gained 8lbs…

I am grateful to my dear readers who were worried and asked if I was ok and noticed my absence!  

I am grateful to see that some how I now have spell check on my blog, as I’ve been frustrated all along that I didn’t!

So glad you got some relief from your neck pain! Maybe I need one of those inversion things. The back of my neck knots up daily and I get so tired of it. Thank goodness a dose or two of ibuprofen usually helps though. What a pretty LBD! Oh, yes…I bet your mind is conjuring up all sorts of options for this little beauty. 🙂
Funny store about running off with the shopping cart. haha

Good to see you back! 😊 My husband has one of those inversion back tables and gets sciatic relief from using it. Our two grandchildren – ages 4 and 6 – also get much amusement from seeing their pawpaw hang upside down!
