When I first received this dress in the mail, 

I styled it in a sporty way and my husband wasn’t impressed..

Not to be deterred I decide to try a second go round…

Note:  I wanted to do this now as going bare legged in November

when I return from Ireland may not be an option..

Speaking of Ireland If you wish to join me on my three week trip, 

then by all means like my Facebook page to see my updates….

Peep toe booties from Payless and my newest Just Fab Purse, which is going to be accompanying me to Ireland…

Sweatshirt dress by Old Navy

There are Links to Payless, Just FAb and Old Navy, if you click on the words…

I had a lot of fun wearing these booties and test driving them for comfort, which they passed with flying colors! 
They are also making it to Ireland as Pub wear… You have to love a chunky heel….

Not the best photo, but my new bifocal glasses , which I love!  

No more taking my glasses off to read and no more leaning forward to see the computer and hurting my back.

I bought this necklace from Ebay as a more edgy piece for when I’m in that mood…

I really had fun with this look today and had compliments and comments regarding

shoe comfort and noticed quite a few sideways looks from men..

Who knew shoes could change an outfit so dramatically..

My husband changed his opinion on the dress and even sent me a text to make sure I knew…

Here’s the first look that didn’t impress my husband….

A perfectly acceptable Mom on the Go Look, which I stand behind…

And last of all, my new bifocal prescription sunglasses…

Gratitude

I am only going to describe one gratitude today instead of my normal list because this one brings me such strong emotions and is absolutely priceless…

I am grateful that my husband changed careers and chose what was best for our family and his health ,  even though it was so tough to leave a company he loved and felt like family.  I am grateful that he so wisely chose to resign from the management position when his hands were tied and he wasn’t permitted to do the hiring and firing necessary to make an effective team.  I am grateful that these past two months he has generated incredible sales which allowed him to pay for tuition for our son, for October bills before leaving for Ireland, for plenty of cash for our Ireland trip and will have a check awaiting our return to cover November bills… This is an incredible feat that will give him the best time of his life… You see, working commission sales can be tough, never knowing each week what will happen and what income will be around the corner… His consistency in this position and new product line will give him Peace Of Mind on this trip… This is something that anyone on 100% commission never takes for granted.  We are pinching ourselves that our two middle children are doing well in college and graduate school , while our oldest and youngest will have an incredible three weeks to bond.

And most importantly this is the most relaxed and longest vacation my dear husband has ever had, being the sole provider for our family and struggling through the years of a tough economy has been hugely stressful and no one deserves this time and this peace more than he does…

Lastly I would just like to take this moment to say, Thank you to my dear husband for all his hard work and for the ability for me to stay home and parent our children and give them the tools they need to live successful and happy lives.   I’ve never taken that for granted and I am forever grateful!  

Please Pardon me If you already read this news on Facebook or Forum,

I really am over the moon and want to shout from a mountain top!
