Happy Accidents…

Posted on: December 4, 2014

I’ve had these cobalt tribal print jeans by Diane Gilman for a few years now…

And realized today, that I’d never tried pattern mixing with them…


I added the Chevron scarf and liked it and even liked adding the white sweater, as I’ve always worn these pants with black, grey, or brights like yellow and orange… 

I’ve shared my love of Diane Gilman Jeans before, here is her current selection 

Much like Not Your Daughters Jeans, these are great for the 40 plus among us…I will note that I usually size down one in her jeans, but make sure to read reviews to see if anyone says they are running large or small…


My happy accident was discovering in the daylight that the scarf is actually navy and white, not black and white…

I already own a navy and white striped knitted unity scarf, so now I am going to gift this one to a dear friend…

The set of scarves I bought from No more rack actually had two in this shade and I gifted the other one to my niece…


We had another cloudy day, so two days in a row without sunglasses, a rarity..

I wore my Rachel Zoe for Qvc black trench, also a few years old…

In fact my white sweater found at Bj’s and purse by Just Fab are new,

while even my booties are from Payless last year.  

Dear Readers, I bowled for the first time since Summer and got my highest score to date… Now don’t get me wrong I am not that good.. My normal scores range from 100 to 120 , but today I scored 155… We are starting a 14 week league for the parents that I’d been pushing for , so glad to get back into it… Why should our homeschool kids have all the fun?


I am so grateful that the young girl in the homeschooling group who dislocated her knee today is at home sleeping tonight. 

I am so grateful for this wonderful set of homeschooling mothers, it’s so rare to get such a kind,fun -loving, supportive, non judgmental and  compassionate group of mother’s  together.  

I am grateful that as you read this today (Thursday) I will be with my hairstylist getting a cut and color for the holidays.. yes I had to book the first week of December to get in!  Pics tomorrow! 

I am grateful that my migraine went away FINALLY around 5pm…the nausea was terrible, these darn weather changes are terrible…My daughter called today from Boston with the same complaint…

I am grateful that my daughter called today and sounded so relaxed, as all major papers and projects for the semester are done and her exams are all take home papers.  

I am grateful that my son passed his ROTC PT testing today, as he didn’t think he could muster the strength for the 60 push ups…he’d been doing only 20, but somehow found the determination to push forward and not give up.. He is very sore tonight, wish he was home so I could set up an epsom salt bath for him….
