Last Night the GYPO Summer Style Challenge Facebook page 

had a lot of fun making up Haiku’s about the challenge.

I wrote four ,but decided to wear a Kimono today to honor you with just one..


Kimono Haiku 

Boho Kimono

Flowy, Feminine,Flirty

A Past Life Hippy? 

I’ve had this one from Steinmart for quite a few years and never tire of it.

I am wearing my new Diane Gilman Cuffed Capris 

and I just had to buy another color Clark’s Wedges


While I love fashion jewelry, it’s really nice toe wear my fine jewelry pieces, like this sapphire necklace my husband bought me years ago.  

I also love wearing hoop earrings a lot, A nod to my Boho style.

These are a lightweight nickle free version I love from  Simply Whispers


If you are a regular reader, you might recognize my bowling tote bag! 

Yes, I went bowling today and will be doing so a lot this summer.

It’s important for my son to practice a lot before his State competition in July.

I purchased a Summer Fun Card where we pay $39.95 and get 3 games every week day for the entire Summer.

We did this last year and had lots of fun!  

If that’s not enough we joined a fun league with the parents and children teams for Saturday Nights…

A great inside fun for Summer , especially good when our temps this week are in the 90’s !  

Check out your local AMF bowling alley for details on how you to can join the fun! 


I am grateful for break downs that lead to lessons learned for my children.

I am grateful for the fun we had bowling today! 

I am grateful for finding my motivation to lose this weight and that I worked out first thing this morning. 

I am grateful for a good night’s sleep.. I stayed up later due to my midnight walk, but slept in until noon, getting a full 8-9 hours, something that hasn’t happened in weeks!  

I am grateful that I finally was able to stop by my friend’s home today to bring her daughter the wonderful clothing items I had purchased for the budding fashionista!  


I won’t bore you with all the details,

but it began with no electricity in the middle I found out the Parent’s Night Out

I was dressed and ready for was rescheduled,

 and now I am on the second version of this post as it went crazy

and turned to computer code , not my words and pictures…


The Good news of the day came in the form of a UPS delivery, all fashionistas share that feeling, lol.

DG2 by Diane Gilman SuperStretch Lite Cuffed Capri

This time I could not hold back any longer and bought myself two pairs of 

Diane Gilman Superstretch Lite Cuffed Capris (try saying that three times fast, lol)

I was lucky to get them the other day when they were the daily special and cheaper.

I know this white and the indigo pair will be very versatile and get me through this weight loss

and into my bottoms from last year! 


I bought this sweater several years ago from QVC during the time when Project Runway Season 2 winner Chloe Dao had her line Simply Chloe Dao selling there.  I love this sweater and it’s a great quality and I have not worn it as much as I should have.  Pairing down my closet brought this to the forefront!  

Dear Readers, my great eating went out the window today… It began with the inability to make a smoothie or omelet due to the lack of electricity and ended with the pizza night I had promised the kids, thinking I was going out.  I did opt for unsauced wings but drenched them in ranch dressing… I am planning to go do a workout after finishing this blog!  


I am so grateful for the day of no electricity and how we were all together hanging out in the same room, making a grocery list and planning dinner menus for the next two weeks.  

I am grateful for the change of Parent’s Night Out, as I would have greatly missed a Mom who was home with her teen who had just had dental surgery this morning. 

I am grateful for the happy accident of my son accidentally ordering the pizza for pick up, saving us the delivery charge, usually I don’t think twice about that, but when it was gone, it felt good, lol! 

I am grateful to my dearest friend for her support and love!
