Not this mama!! Hello Blogland and Happy Mother’s Day to all who are mom’s, whether human-kids or fur-kids!!
Our darling daughter and the grand-puppy came up Friday nite to spend the weekend while her hubby is away in Georgia at school. MrBill was VERY excited to see Noelle!! He just LOVES her!!
Julie and Noelle
Whilst I was waiting for her to arrive I pulled out this:
And here’s the results. I left it on for an hour (said on bottle 10-20 minutes) as my hair is natural grey as opposed to bleached out hair. Grey tends to be a bit resistant to dyes. I like the light pink result. The next time I’m going to leave it on longer for a darker pink. My daughter LOVED it and I got loads of compliments as the Mother-Daughter Breakfast!
Here are some Noelle pictures. I couldn’t get any of her and MrBill together as she is QUITE energetic. Bill loves her but she wore him OUT!!! They just left and he is SOUND asleep! It did show us that when we adopt another dog we need to get one a bit older and calmer! He’s just too old to handle it! I made the zebra dress for her.
Friday was a casual quiet day at work. I got the glittery tshirt at Walmart for $7 and gathered the sides up myself to give it shape.
Purse & Shoes-Thrifted,
We had a load of fun at the Mother-Daughter Breakfast. They had a fashion show (pictures later this week) that was so much fun. Several of us “menopausal supermodels” have been recruited to work the runway next year!

I told Julie she had to have her picture taken for the blog, too!!
After the breakfast we got pedicures together and then I took her to the local consignment shop. Julie made out like a bandit. She has to dress conservatively for her job like Lynne of Good Will Hunting.
Julie made out like a bandit!!! she spent all of $27 for the following: (Sorry my pix don’t do them justice!)
Ann Taylor skirt-$4
The Limited sheath dress- $8
Calvin Klein sheath dress-$14
Although it seemed odd to buy two black sheath dresses, the Calvin Klein has pleats across the bodice and is a bit dressier. Both can be worn with cardigans or jackets. She plans on wearing the Calvin Klein at their first anniversary dinner later this month.
Here’s what we wore to church and out to dinner today. I got a REAL DEAL on the maxi dress. I had a $10 off coupon for Kohl’s. I found the dress on the clearance rack marked down from $68 to $16.99 as-is. It had some deodorant streaks on it. I figured it was mine for $6.99 plus the coupon. when I got to the register they gave me a scratch-off that added an extra 30% off. I got the dress for under $5 with tax!! SCORE!!!!

Well I’m off to say good-bye to Julie and Noelle. I hope everyone has had a wonderful weekend and I’ll be chatting with you more on Tuesday. I’m linking up with all the fantastic ladies at Visible Monday!!
