Gaia's Outfit of the Day!

I even have our littlest member of the family sharing her outfit of the day!

Outfit of the Day! Le Tote

Inspired by my Cece Sportswear Bow top from Le Tote fashion subscription box I put this outfit together. I added my Kensie dark blue jeggings from Le Tote, Merona black MaryJane heels from Target, brown satchel handbag from Ross for daytime and art deco-inspired clutch also from Le Tote for evening.

Just another fun and affordable outfit from my wardrobe!



Darby Smart Subscription Box Has Arrived! "Cookies"!

I love to bake so when I opened my first Darby Smart subscription box I was beyond thrilled!


The family requested that I bake the sugar cookies that night. So out came the KitchenAid mixer, spatula, baking sheet and parchment paper!

If you're not in the mood to make sugar cookies from scratch I highly recommend food stirs cookie mix brands. Prep was quick and easy. The final results: delish! No GMOs!

Our Second Grade Student Loves Attending Connections Academy

Language Arts: My granddaughter and are learning about plural and singular nouns!

We love that our granddaughter attends Connections Academy! The school supplies the student with a computer, books and supplies.


We took our office, added a small desk and chair for our computer, decorated the closet doors with classroom monthly themes and learning posters.


Here's our very happy second grade student! We're so proud of her. She even looks forward to live lessons.

Look Who Turned 8 Months Old!



Our precious granddaughter, Gaia, has turned 8 months old. She's mobile so I had to wait till she fell asleep to take this photo. "Love you, Gigi"! g

Thank You, Go Curvy! #WomanoftheWeek

I'm wicked thrilled to be Go Curvy's Woman of the Week. I've been a Go Curvy fan 5 years or more. I looked forward to tweeting during the live episodes.

I was even an outfit of the day fashion contributor for a season. That was great fun! I was able to style affordable outfits each week.

#WhatsForDinner Pork Stew



No written or oral recipe for the dish. I just added fresh chopped vegetables that would compliment pork. Organic butternut squash, sweet potato, and carrots were uniformly chopped. I then cut the pork into similar sizes to the veggies.

The next step was to layer each vegetable in the Dutch oven evenly based on cooking time. Sweet potatoes, butternut squash, carrots, and pork. (I did roast the butternut squash for 30 minutes prior to added it to the dish) Just salt and pepper each layer. Eyeballed the level of water to 1/4 full.

I turned the oven temperature to 350 degrees. Set the kitchen timer to 1 hour. (our old oven runs hot)

Oh! I did add fresh green beans at the final 5 minutes of cooking. Let the Dutch oven sit on the counter for a 30 minutes with the top on.

A delicious meal for the whole family!

Outfit of the Day: Le Tote Vince Camuto Fan Graphic Pink White Top

My Le Tote fashion subscription box arrived this week full of yummy items! The Vince Camuto Fan graphic pink, white top inspired this look.

I added my Old Navy boyfriend jeans, Target Merona Mary Jane heels and a colorful necklace and bracelet from Le Tote box.

A fun, colorful outfit to celebrate the last warm day in Las Vegas!

Thank You E. For My New Wig

My daughter-in-law and I stopped by Beauty Supply Warehouse to try on wigs this week. It was wicked fun. I was able to try styles I would have never purchased online.

The winner was China, Motown Tress F4/27. I love her long straight length and the color blend. She's going to keep my head warm and fashionable this fall and winter.


Thank you E. for this generous gift.
