red sweater with hood and pockets=smile

 a venezia thin red sweater for $4--oh, yeah!  with pockets and a hood, even better!  afraid it is my new favorite!  rockport leather shoes in the same shade are just so worth it when you are on your feet all day!  gray lane bryant pants and some floral accents top it all off!  the silver rose pin in the middle is from Grandma--yeah for vintage jewelry!  love my chicos earrings--match so many things!  

the thing i am most grateful for today is that we have paid off a credit card that has been "haunting" us for years!  i am proud of us (my spouse and I)  to have committed to change our consumer behavior over time.  we did not declare bankruptcy, we are establishing a positive credit history and learning to make do with the stuff we have.

have you experienced something like this before?  if feels fabulous freeing!

rod stewart hair and other music musings.....

so if you remember rod stewart in the 80's, (google forever young video) then you might think i stole his hair:)  but, i think i am a bit prettier than he is--haha!

speaking of bands or music that you don't mind on the radio but would never buy an album, here is my list:
  • Boston, which even to me is weird because I own both Foreigner and Journey which sound very similar
  • Maroon 5
  • Matchbox Twenty love Rob Thomas's voice but won't invest, sorry:(
  • Ted Nugent
  • Lynnard Skynnard
  • Rush (sorry Thom--I know you are ashamed to by my friend)
  • Rihanna--this type of music is my "you like that?", but I am a die hard Brittany fan
  • Justin Timberlake--that guy has a great sense of humor about himself, though
  • The Doors
  • AC/DC
  • Ozzy Osbourne
obviously i am a rocker and a dancer--never country or pop music so there are the parameters for my list....

p.s.  where the heck did November go?  i can't believe i haven't posted more often....hope your holidays were great!
