Brighten up Friday

A few weeks ago I went to a meeting for my daughter’s musical.  As we sat together listening to the choir teacher drone on, I looked around the room and noticed the majority of the parents with glum looks on their faces and mostly dressed in black, brown, or some other dark color.  Granted, this meeting was held at 6:00 p.m. on a Friday night.  We would of all liked to have been somewhere else.  I looked down at my neon bright pants and smiled at my daughter and whispered to her that I was the only one with crazy colored pants on in January.  Why do we wear dark colors in winter?  Today for my fun outfit of the week, I’m wearing my bright pants to lighten up the cold days of winter!

And for your inspiration pleasure, I came across some photographs taken by a Russian woman.  Click HERE for the link.  They are BEAUTIFUL!!  I would love to do something like this!

Have a wonderful long weekend.  Our kids are out of school Monday and Tuesday!  The house is in order with lists of what to do while I’m away for a LONG day and 1/2!  Remember…smile, relax, and wear something BRIGHT!


A little bit of EVERYTHING!

We had an absolutely AMAZING workout today!  My arms are still shaky and it’s been 2 hours!!  I’m in a hurry to GET OUT OF TOWN so I’ll post it when I get back.  I LOVE TRIPS!!!  Forceful relaxation.  A MUST for me!  So,  I came across some BEAUTIFUL and INSPIRING artwork.  The artist’s name is Donna Downey.  CLICK HERE!  So bright, colorful, and uplifting.  I will decorate my next house with several pieces of her work.  Here are a few examples!!

I found them in a cute boutique and took pictures.  So pretty!

Next, is my SONG of the day!!!  This is a bit teeny bopperish of me, but I’m around a lot of young people in my church and with my kids.  Apparently this is one of the IT bands and ALL these boys are SOOOOOO CUTE!!!  It’s a fun, upbeat song and they do SING WELL!!!  ENJOY!!

Hope everyone was a GREAT weekend!!
