Easter Blessing to All…..

Hello Blogland!!! Happy Easter from cold, rainy Maryland!!  I didn’t even put a fancy dress on the Diva but left her in a sweater!

This has been a busy weekend–I hope to catch up with everyone’s blogs later this evening. I’ve got a ham in the oven and baked beans in the crock-pot smelling really good!  We have a friend coming over to dinner with any other strays he might bring along that have nowhere to go.

Friday was a short work day and afterwards the hubster and I headed to The Temple Paul Mitchell School for haircuts. We have a dear friend, Teresa, who is studying there. Below is shaggy me pre-haircut:

Saturday evening we met up with my family for dinner. I took the picture on the front porch. I’m sporting my fab new ‘do!!! Everyone loves it (the hubster’s haircut was awesome but he doesn’t want a picture on the blog-LOLOL) and several people think I highlighted my hair deliberately like this as opposed to just growing the dyed part out!

My Easter outfit caused quite a sensation at church today!! Compliments everywhere–several said it was so different from what I usually wear but FABULOUS!! The hubster said I looked like a luscious watermelon-I’m not sure what THATS supposed to men!!! The dress is FashionBug and came from the mission for $4!!!  I kept the accessories to a minimum as the print is fairly busy. I’m going to definitely draft a pattern from this to make more!!

Here’s a close-up of the new shoes!! They are by Chaps and from Kohl’s. They were marked down 60% to $28. I had a gift card for a bit over $15 on it.  I’ve needed a dressier black shoe and they were cute and comfy  so I decided to get them. When I got to the register they gave me a scratch off ticket that came up an additional 30% off!! I was able to get these for under $20!!  Note I’m wearing fishnet tight, too!
