 Well this is a fun post. I love date nights and I love to dress up!

I think it’s good to know what your husband likes when you think about what to wear. I know Wayne likes heels better than flats so I will usually wear heels when we go out.

Here’s an outfit I have and plan to wear to the dinner theatre we’re going to be attending in a few weeks.

I tried this on for Wayne and it was a hit. :-)

I saw this outfit on Pinterest and loved it. It’s a little more casual but would be fun to wear for a holiday date night.

Of course you can’t go wrong with dresses. I purchased both of these a few years ago at Marshall’s. I love dresses!

Beauty for the Heart~~Years ago, Wayne and I read the book, The Five Love Languages by Gary Chapman. I highly recommend this book to married couples.

We each have a love language and we share our love language with our spouse. But if that’s not their love language they’re aren’t feeling loved.

Wayne’s love language is words of affirmation. You would know that very quickly if you were around him. He tells me he loves me and how beautiful he thinks I am all day long. But that’s not my love language.

My love language is acts of service. So when he empties the dishwasher or folds the laundry I feel loved! And when I tell him I love him and he’s an amazing husband and father, he feels loved.

Anyway, marriage is not easy and we have worked hard to have a good one but it’s worth it!!

Do something extra special for your spouse today. Let them know you love them!!!

Have a blessed day!

What To Wear To An At Home Holiday Party

Welcome to Day 4 of our 12 Days of Holiday Outfits. Today is What To Wear To An At Home Holiday Party! I’m partnering with Kristin from BonBon Rose Girls and Jo-Lynne from Jo-Lynne Shane to bring you 12 days of posts about what to wear for EVERY event this holiday season.

Okay, if I weren’t my own boss, my boss might fire me. Why? Because I’m sharing such a traditional look! I meant isn’t it a no brainer to wear red at Christmas??

I’m definitely not stepping out of the box. But I’m a traditional girl at heart. I still love to decorate with red and green at Christmas. I love fresh greenery with berries and some magnolia leaves. Let’s just say I have a southern flair!

If the temperature were not 12 degrees outside, I might have skipped the black long sleeved top with this sweater. But hey, a girls gotta do what a girls gotta do.

Am I freezing!! Umm, Yes! That’s why I have my coffee sitting close by. I’ve been drinking out of this cute coffee cup I purchased at Hobby Lobby a few weeks ago. So festive!

It’s not just cold, it’s windy!!! Here’s an action shot of how most of my pictures look. This picture makes me want to start singing, “I’ll fly away oh glory, I’ll fly away in the morning, When I die hallelujah by and by, I’ll fly away” Please tell me someone knows that song??

The one thing I would tell you is to wear a pair of shoes that you wouldn’t normally wear. A few years ago, I would have worn a pair of black boots. But I love my short boots and my scarf has some tan in it so I opted for a brown bootie.

12 Days Of Holiday Outfits and More!

So, let me tell you what a work holiday party looks like for me. My husband is a pastor. That means we go to Sunday School (we now call them small groups) parties.

He’s also on a board at the state level and we go to a dinner theatre which is lots of fun.

I know what you’re thinking. I live on the wild side! I’ve got to slow down. I know. Don’t be jealous, we can’t all be living this wild life. :-)

Anyway, I’ve shared some outfits over the last few years that all have red in them. I love red, especially around Christmas. It’s just festive!

Here I took a sweater from Gap and just added black pants and high heels. Pretty classic.

You can’t go wrong with a little black dress and of course a red scarf. Simple and easy.

This dress is from Stitch Fix. It’s perfect for the Christmas season!

This year, I decided to try a different color. This deep burgundy color is on trend and I added some bling with my necklace.

Of course I had to pop some leopard print with this clutch. (Don’t you love how I added the snow!)

Beauty for the Heart~~It seems we’ve already become numb to the beheadings with ISIS. It’s almost as if the news says, oh yeah there’s been another one.

Friends that’s someones son. Let’s pray today for that family!! This is a horrible tragedy.

What To Wear Black Friday Shopping!

Welcome to Day 2 of our 12 Days of Holiday Outfits. Today is What To Wear Black Friday Shopping! I’m partnering with Kristin from BonBon Rose Girls and Jo-Lynne from Jo-Lynne Shane to bring you 12 days of posts about what to wear for EVERY event this holiday season.

If you’re crazy enough to fight the crowd then by all means make sure your outfit is comfortable!

What To Wear Black Friday Shopping!

Here are my tips for Black Friday shopping. Don’t wear a lot of jewelry. When you’re running to catch those deals, you don’t want a bracelet to snag on something and slow you down. No necklaces either, it could fly up and hit you in the mouth. Not good! :-)

What To Wear Black Friday Shopping!

Eat a high protein breakfast and of course make sure you have plenty of coffee to keep your energy up. Stay away from sugar, you don’t want a sudden drop in energy. This is serious business!!

What To Wear Black Friday Shopping!

Use your shopping bags to hit anyone that gets in your way. Just make sure no one sees you hitting, you could end up in jail. No fun calling the family and telling them they need to pick you up and pay bail. Bail money would cut into your christmas money. Ha!

What To Wear Black Friday Shopping!

No time to do your hair, throw on a festive red hat!! Wear comfortable shoes. I ran around the house a couple of times to test my boots out. I think I’m good.

Okay, I’m having way too much fun with this post. Some of my sweetest christmas memories with my Mom were the two of us getting up early and going Black Friday shopping.

We never bought that much but we loved the beginning of the christmas season. Everyone would be wishing each other “Merry Christmas.”  I miss those days!

What about you, are you going Black Friday shopping? Do you make it a fun family adventure?

Beauty For the Heart~~Who can add to Christmas? The perfect motive is that God so loved the world. The perfect gift is that He gave His only Son. The only requirement is to believe in Him. The reward of faith is that you shall have everlasting life. ~Corrie Ten Boom

Casual Fashion For Women Over 40

Today I’m sharing some casual fashion for women over 40. My casual fashion consists of a plaid shirt and booties which I seem to have a thing for these days.

I’ve worn this Old Navy shirt with a red vest but decided to wear it alone today.

Casual Fashion For Women Over 40
I love to add  bracelets to my outfit. The gold one is from Stella & Dot and I wear it all the time.

I’ve talked about my trench coat before but it’s a staple piece for me. I love to wear it this time of the year when the weather is chilly. A trench coat adds a little class to a basic outfit.

Please tell me I’m not alone in my love for plaid shirts and booties?? 

Beauty For the Heart~~I’m typing this post from a hospital room. My father-in-law has pneumonia and my husband and I are sitting with him. He’s 88 years old and at that age, pneumonia can be a little dangerous.

Hopefully he’ll get to go home soon. Hospitals are no fun!

As I sit here and listen to all that’s going on outside his room, I hear a lot of different conversations. Some are sweet, some are laced with obscenities, some are from people who are sick and need help.

It reminds me how each of us are different…..our backgrounds, our lifestyles, even our genetics.

But God in his perfect plan, created each of us. He loves us and he wants us to know Him. It’s a beautiful thing!

“The God who made the world and everything in it, this Master of sky and land, doesn’t live in custom-made shrines or need the human race to run errands for him, as if he couldn’t take care of himself. He makes the creatures; the creatures don’t make him. Starting from scratch, he made the entire human race and made the earth hospitable, with plenty of time and space for living so we could seek after God, and not just grope around in the dark but actually find him. He doesn’t play hide-and-seek with us. He’s not remote; he’s near. We live and move in him, can’t get away from him! Acts 17:24-28 (MSG)

Have a blessed day!
