Good morning ladies.
I’m @ my dining room table, having a delicious cup of coffee, thinking about my plans today.
By the way, it’s gorgeous outside; looks ‘postcard-ish.’ My view over all of the rooftops, trees etc that are all covered with LOTS of fresh snow~ very pretty.
Anyway, today, I have plans to spend the day with my favorite Aunt (Lani) to shop, do lunch, and shop some more. We’ve got alot of lost time to catch up on/make up for. We haven’t done this in years, as my Mom drove quite a, shall we say, ‘wedge‘, somehow among some of us in the family. So this day and these plans are pretty exciting for me as my Aunt and I have reconnected & I couldn’t be happier about that. This is a very cool thing, girls!
Just thought I’d share that as I’m sitting here thinking about it, and of course trying to decide what to wear. lol
Have a great day!

    • That is so nice. I am glad that you were able to reconnect with your Aunt. Enjoy and appreciate every moment of your day today.
      As for clothes.....since it is a treat and a special event I would dress as such. But since there is shopping involved too just make sure your sassy boots are also comfortable ones......

    • Hi Jenz!

      WOW! enjoy your day! you and your Aunt will have a blast i am sure!

      my family is the same way.. My Grandmother seems to have issues with some of my Aunts ( my Grandfathers sister and sister in law, and frankly EVERYONE on his side of the family.. )

      Anyway, family is important to me, so before i moved 2 years ago, i ALWAYS went to my Aunts and Uncles.. well, somehow my Grandmother would find out, and then call and b***h at my momita..

      She inturn would call me.. and i told her 3 years ago.. ” look momita.. im 43 years old.. THESE are my family! i can not help it if Grandmother has issues.. she needs to grow up, pull up her big girl pants and get over it! BESIDES.. people who live in glass houses should not throw stones! ”  

      My momita did not know what to say.. lol she said nothing..Since my visit back home in my, i have realized MANY things as to why! im not going to take up mor of Jenz blog with it.. but may blog later on it.. lol

      Blessings!

    • Jen,

      Hope you had a great time w/ your Auntie!  Without rambling, I know what it’s like to loose the connection and have family fragmented.  Enjoy what you can with whomever you please!  Hope you had a fabulous time!

      P.

      Hi girlies! :)
      Today was a blast. We talked about everything & anything & went all over the place after a fab lunch 2 the Radisson.
      Coach, Banana Republic, Liz C, BCBG Max & Parallel, got some awesome deals & she bought me a beautiful top for Christmas. Was a great day.

      Thanks :)

      It is truly awesome that we’ve reconnected & sooo important to be together as family, etc. Can’t ask for a better Xmas gift than that~

      Peace!!

    • I am so happy for you. Isn't it sad how families can be torn apart by one manipulative person. And somehow, we all thing we should bow to that person and accomodate them in whatever way will make them happy. I am of the opinion that there is no use trying to make some people happy, cuz it taint gonna happen!

    • I SOOO know what you mean. Maybe I'll blog about the "wedge creator" otherwise known as my Mom. I should.. I think the only thing that stops me, truthfully is, I don't like to be viewed as someone who 'carries that kind of negativity around.' I'm not negative & it doesn't run me. But, it would be interesting to get some feedback. I think I'll do it it's on my mind & I'm comfortable talking about anything & everything here anyway...

      I’ll be back shortly w/ a new blog...
