The hardest part of my weight gain is seeing it in photographs….

With Spring arriving and less layers I can see clearly what I haven’t wanted to face…

Linking up today with Turning Heads by Elegantly Dressed and Stylish

And with Style Elixir for Spring Outfits,  So go get inspired…


It’s not necessarily a bad thing, as it is motivating me to exercise more.

After a week of sinus headaches and not exercising as much as I would have liked,

I am ready to kick this into gear.  

I took a walk today to get started, which is why I chose this outfit… 


It’s fun to add sparkle and a scarf to boyfriend jeans to make it more feminine. 

I like wearing scarves in Spring because once Summer hits our humidity makes that unappealing. 

I did a faux tuck today, which actually looked better and defined my waist. 


My boy-friend jeans are from last Spring and are by Just Fab. 

That makes two things from there since my  purse , a bucket bag for this year’s trend is my most recent purchase

I sporting brand new sneakers that I found on clearance at Target. 

I figured with my love of the Sporty Chic trend, that another pair would be helpful.

When you aren’t happy with your weight, shoes are a safe bet…

Dear Readers, On my walk I went to Burlington Coat Factory and tried on clothes, a big wake up call, so I came home from my walk and did a Fluidity ballet bar workout and a few other Pilates exercises. It was a full day of wake up calls with my weight gain as I tried on my soft pants from last year and they were tight.  Yep, I am very ready to kick this into full gear!  


I am grateful for my readers comments, they helped my day of facing my weight gain.

I am grateful that I joined the Get Your Pretty on Spring Challenge and am enjoying the private Facebook page where everyone is sharing their purchases and closet finds for the challenge. 

I am grateful that I had my wake up call and got right to working out!

 I am grateful that my husband agreed to go for a late night walk with me to really finish this day strong. 

I am grateful that despite not feeling well, that my home-schooler still managed to get his work done.

When your Sunday activities include taking down holiday decorations 

and a grocery store run, casual comfort is key.


When your sciatica is acting up, it’s time to break out the puma tennis shoes.  

In the end between the striped sweatshirt and sneakers, I created another sporty look…


I was so busy I didn’t get photos done until after grocery shopping around 7pm….

so a stop at lighted bank with an overhang was in order…

It was windy and sprinkling at the time..

I liked adding the purple vest and additional touches of purple in the hat and necklace..


I love the floral embroidery on this thrifted vest…

I haven’t been thrifting in a long time and the one thing I’ve missed is adding in a new vest for the season..

Not that I really need any, but it’s still nice to acquire them at such a bargain price

and they are always in excellent condition…

Dear Readers, taking the decorations down is certainly not my favorite weekend activity , but it sure was a lot easier to do with my husband home and the adult children home from college pitching in.. Speaking of those two, they both go back next Sunday, so a week more to enjoy them!  It’s going to a busy week of grocery shopping at Bj’s for snack foods, getting my son’s suit tailored, making a few dinner requests to fulfill their home cooked meal loves and they both want haircuts before leaving.. This week is going to fly by too quickly!  


I am grateful that everyone pitched in to help take the decorations down, it definitely made it a more enjoyable chore.

I am grateful that we had enough leftovers for easy deli sandwiches tonight.

I am grateful for the background of two football games, just enjoying the love of the game.

I am grateful for a beautiful warm day before the cold front moves in..

I am grateful that my dear friend made it home from her two week trip to Canada today, and am looking forward to hearing all about it..She hasn’t been back home in 8 years so a big deal!!!!
