Black & White for Christmas Party…

Posted on: December 18, 2014

Today was the home-school bowling group’s Christmas Party

So What to wear for comfort,but festive enough…


I decided for comfort to wear my Old Navy Leggings , thrifted striped tunic and thrifted vest…

To add festive touches, I opted for a red tassel necklace (Burlington) and a Santa Hat…

Truth be told this is my 19 year old son’s hat, because mine is a Pittsburgh Steelers one…


The tote is from Just Fab and what I always carry my bowling shoes in…

The booties are last years version from Payless


I finished it all off with red lipstick… 

I don’t wear it often, but love when an opportunity arises..


I couldn’t resist snapping a picture of my 14 year old photographer and home-schooler.

He is wearing a jacket and pants from Old Navy and shirt and shoes by Vans..

Dear Readers, bowling days are always a good day for a stay at home , homeschooling parent to have adult conversations!  

This week I get to see some of them twice as, some of us are going to see The Christmas Carol on Friday morning..


I am grateful my children are  home and brightened my day.  

I am grateful that my daughter agreed to help me finish wrapping presents for the two youngest…

I am grateful for a great conversation with my supportive and compassionate sister in law.  

I am grateful to  my oldest who reached out by cell phone to my 19 year old son,  while he was tooling around Richmond after having to check out of his dorm, with hours to kill before his sister landed from Boston…( so helpful since my oldest knew I was at bowling and did this all on his own)

I am grateful that my 19 year old was so touched by his brother reaching out to keep him company via the cell.

I am grateful that my son listened to my suggestion of doing some Christmas shopping while waiting and indeed found something for all his siblings…

I am grateful for the love I see between my children ,  a mother’s dream!

That’s a cool outfit: casual and the Santa hat tops it off nicely for the occasion!

It’s great to be grateful, and we do have so much to be grateful for! The last one is truly a mother’s dream!

Merry Christmas!!

You look great! I am always encouraged by your gratitude statements! The love of your children for each other is truly a gift! Blessings!

Thank you for commenting… The gratitude statements are as much for my readers as they are for me and it warms my heart on days when it’s hard to reach for some to find, knowing that others are reading them…Only a mother of more than one child really understands wanting your children to bond in adulthood..

I like your Santa hat and your grateful thoughts you share daily! I also think your 14-year-old son is quite handsome. 😊

Cute festive look! Nice looking family!
