Orange is the New Green

Remember 4-5 years ago when green purses were all the rage?
Everywhere I looked...someone was carrying a green purse.
Most people I knew...owned a green purse.

A nephew-in-law is a sales person for the Ashley Furniture Company
I asked him what the trend is for 2014. 
His response?
Gray and orange. 
His preference is gray with a pop of orange.
However, they have done some special orders of orange couches. 
Really?

Back to purses...

We spent the weekend in Oklahoma City. 
During the day Saturday, we spent time with our extended family.
Saturday evening, we went to the Thunder game. 
After the game we went to Flint
We spent the night at Colcord
Sunday morning, we ate breakfast at #2027 Waffle House!


After breakfast, we shopped the OKC Outlet Mall.

Back to purses.

Everywhere I looked this weekend, women were carrying ORANGE purses.
Not GREEN.
ORANGE!

You heard it here first.
Orange is the New Green!

What color purse do you carry?

Decorations: Mission Accomplished

Christmas, 2013 is packed away. 

Except for the poinsettia tablecloth on the dining table.

I'll launder it tomorrow and pack it away.

I promise.

How about your decorations?

New Job (Yes, another one!)

January 2, 2014

I started a new job.

It is with the same company 
where I began a temporary position, 
 on September 23, 2013.

It's a good company.

My preference, 
at this age, 
would be 
to win the lottery, 
take the lump sum, 
and ride off into the sunset.

Unfortunately, 
The Husband says that is not going to happen.

What does HE know?

Happy 2014!!!

It's another New Year, all bright and shiny.  
I'm full of optimisim that good things are going to happen this year. 
How about you?
I hope your 2014 will be spectacular, because that is what I'm planning for mine!

I'm not going to promise that I'm will blog more in 2014. 
My total number of blog posts have declined over the years.
Severely!

2013 = 51
2012 = 114
2011 = 163
2010 = 235
2009 = 237

I still have stories to tell you, some are even in draft status waiting to be finished.
Maybe I should focus on finishing the drafts?  What do you think?

My five year blog anniversary will be February 16, 2014.
I'll try to write a better post on that day than my very first post!

I hope you stick with me in 2014!
