Seriously loving Emma Watson’s new look.  Steering away from her Harry Potter days and trying to blend into Brown University’s student body, Emma is so simply gorgeous and comfortable in her skin.  Although I would never look good with a Pixie cut, I’ve always been tempted.  It just looks so simple yet stylish and sophisticated.   Maybe, if someone paid me to do it!!  The photos are from the most recent Marie Claire and Vogue Mags.

Finally, I’ve gotten some time to write a full blog post on our mini road trip to Toronto  in October.  It was one of our best trips we’ve taken….because we didn’t plan a thing until we got there!  It was a gorgeous fall day which made for a great drive.  So thankful for good driving weather and some stress free time together.   We stayed in downtown Toronto, in the Entertainment District.   Everything we decided to explore was within walking distance and that’s what we did.  Walk…for days!  … Read more »

Loving this look from Actress Toni Collete today.  The scarf,  (double breasted?) grey jacket, skinny jeans, knee high black boots and fab Emerald green handbag.  I’m definitely on a mission to recreate this look!!  We’ll see if I can do it on a budget.  If I do, I will be sure to blog my great finds!! ***Next up, a full write up of our Toronto Trip and a Guest Blog Post!

Kenny and I decided to do something that we’ve never done…and drive up to Toronto, Canada.  We’ve heard so many good things about this city and wanted to experience it, even if it was only for 3 days.  Almost 4 days if you count all the driving we did!   Corktown Design Company in the Distillery District of Old Town Toronto.  We walked from Eaton Centre, to  St. Lawrence Market, onto the Distillery District.  There were so many great shops, brewery’s and business’s along the cobblestone streets.  We walked so… Read more »

Back in August, I went to visit with my good friend Angie and her kids Caitlin and Ethan. It’s really hard for us to find time that we’re both available so this was a fun afternoon. We had lunch, got to chat, and had some fun with Play-doh. Ang made her own from flour and water, food coloring and I think that’s it. (Correct me if I’m wrong, Ang!). The kids are growing so fast. I must say that they… Read more »

 I’m sitting here thinking about the husband.  Kenny’s birthday is today.  He’s out of town on business yet again, but he’s working hard and I can’t complain about that.   Kenny is a HUGE movie buff and we went to see “The Expendables” this past weekend.   He loved it, of course.   It’s my pick next time…although we agreed that he wouldn’t have to go see “Eat, Pray, Love” with me.   Compromise,  I tell you…it saves marriages.   We have celebrated many a birthday… Read more »

  This has been my motto for as long as I can remember.  It’s the way I was brought up and it’s a way of life for me.  You can thank my mother for that.   Although,  not everyone decides to live there life this way (which is a major dissapointment).   As you can see,  I haven’t blogged in a month.  I have written many blog posts but I’ve deleted them.  I really don’t know why I deleted them.  I’m not… Read more »

In continuation from the sneak peek, here are a few more of my favorite photos from the Macungie Relay for Life.   I really enjoyed taking the time to walk around and watch all the families, friends and peer groups walking for one common goal.    I too, stopped to remember my friends and loved ones who have passed.   Eileen’s Team Name was ” We Are Family”.   Macungie Memorial Park.   2010 Macungie Relay For Life Location. This is Wendy Stickler,  battling cancer like so many at… Read more »

In May,  I had the opportunity to go to the Macungie Relay for Life  and visit my former co-worker, friend and 2-time breast cancer survivor Eileen.   It was my first time attending this event and what an emotional event it was.  Eileen is in the center of the photo here (with her leg crossed).  This is the only shot of her, which is understandable…this is a Fri-Sun walk to raise money and there were tons of activities and things to see as well.   The first shot is of… Read more »

Oh, I honestly wasn’t going to blog about my birthday.  I’m not very good with being the center of attention.  I haven’t had a birthday party (with more than family) since I was 10 at least.    Not even for my 30th.  It’s kind of hard when friends and family are all out of the area and/or across the country.   The past couple of birthdays have been very quiet and low-key which I like in most cases.  Well, I turned 34 on… Read more »
