Happy Accidents…

Posted on: September 15, 2014

Today there is no outfit post because I spent my Sunday afternoon and evening in Workout Gear…

You see, I tried on my coated skinny jeans for the Ireland trip and they were tight due to my 8lb weight gain…

I did a 2.5 mile walk around my neighborhood…

Then in the evening my husband suggested a walk at our beach boardwalk…

And I jumped at the chance as there is nothing better than our beach once tourist season is over…

Our night started with a stop into a store that had all kinds of Sports Products,

Where we each picked out something for out Ireland Trip


Luggage Tags for our Checked Bags!  


Notice my Steelers picture came first and is bigger…LOL!

The funniest part about that store is that we didn’t notice until coming out that it was previously owned by my best friend and one I worked in after closing my consignment store , when she was pregnant and having my now adopted 8 year old niece. 

As we walked a few blocks we heard music and of course he looked at me and asked if I wanted to go there!

Silly Question, I LOVE BEACH Concerts!!!!

Lo and Behold it was Our Favorite Local Band

The Deloreans, An 80’s tribute band… Their Facebook Page Here

So, My walk on the Boardwalk turned into an hour and a half of dancing!!!!

Hence my blog post title, Happy Accidents! 

It was such a fun time and we loved it!!!

Dear Readers, I am happy that my first day back to exercising went so well, and it’s a lot more fun to dance than any other form in my humble opinion…So wish me luck as I try to workout and see how much weight I can drop in the next 3 weeks before our trip!


I am grateful for a nice morning of thrifting and coffee with a dear friend!

I am grateful for my friend’s inspiration  , as she has been walking, which led me to change clothes and do my 2.5 mile neighborhood route…

I am grateful that my husband suggested a walk at the beach…

I am grateful for the artists in our life that are dedicated to their art and struggle financially to entertain us and do something they love! 

I am grateful to my husband for indulging me and buying me a Deloreans t-shirt in shocking 80’s pink…look for it for future styling..

I am grateful for a fun night with my husband and for music where you know all the words!   

Happy 46th Birthday to my Dear Husband!  Looking forward to our Ireland trip and you taking time off from work!

It’s so nice to hear how you and your husband really enjoy your time together. And you’ve inspired me to put on my walking pants (right now) and get my butt outside and walk today. I need to soooooo bad. Hubby has made 2 batches of blueberry crisp (served w/ ice cream) over the past 3 weeks. We’ve both declared it the absolute BEST dessert in the whole world. And while I’ve thoroughly enjoyed it (and am now totally addicted to it) it has not helped with losing the 8 pounds that I too need to lose. ha

Good luck with the weight loss. It’s so nice to have an event to spur us on. It is fun to get out and walk, you really do see all kinds of interesting things and I never regret doing it.

Thank you, yes walking is interesting!
