What I Wore- Camo


I have joined a Bible Study here that is very similar to one I took my kids to when they were little. It has been a huge blessing in my life. There is nothing quite like studying scripture one passage at a time to bring clarity to one's life!! I'm loving it!!

I wasn't sure about wearing camo to bible study, but it is very casual so I went for it!! Here is what I wore.


Camouflage seems to be everywhere right now. I even have a pair of camo yoga pants that I work out int. Not knowing if I would wear them very much, I didn't want to spend a lot of money on a pair of camo jeans. I found a pair on Amazon (here). They are very comfortable and I like the color.


I have so much black in my closet! (I think it is my inner New Yorker) I wanted to branch out a bit and find some tops to add a bit of color for fall and winter. I found this top at Francesa's. They were having a great sale the day I was there so it made this purchase even better. 


I'm so glad I got these pants! I've worn them a couple of other times and have gotten several compliments on them!!

It's The Peak Of The Week! 11-14-18



We started our week off with a beautiful snow. I thought I would share some views of my world on this PEAK OF THE WEEK!! I'm also sharing some things that piqued my interest this week!



Dan Crenshaw and SNL- Finally a story where someone says something "offensive" and no one goes bat s**t crazy over it!! Such lessons to be learned from this. Can we please all have a new start in 2019 and stop the HATE? I don't think I can take much more of it.

** Watch how you talk to people at home, at school, at work, and out in the community. Watch what you post on social media. Think about the negativity you are spreading before you share a post or a thought!!



Flu Shot- It's still not too late to get your flu shot. Here is an easy to follow lesson on how the flu shot comes about each year and how it works!!



The Secret To Keeping Your House Clean Most Of The Time- Of course, we all know that the secret to keeping a house clean is to hire a cleaning lady!!! I have had wonderful cleaning ladies over the years. But, honestly, I don't work outside the home now so I need to appreciate that there is a way to have a home that I enjoy without slaving too much. I enjoy following Clean Mama!! She has a great plan for homekeeping and I honestly do try to follow her plan. Life seems to get in the way much of the time, but she has some great ideas!!

It was such a cozy day inside! As it came time for us to go out and go sledding, I started thinking about just staying in, but I reminded myself that #imalive and that I needed to do it #becauseican and out we went!!


Dr. Hotze-  The Hotze Health & Wellness Center is in Houston, Texas. Dr. Hotze believes in natural treatments for what ails us. I have started listening to his podcasts when we travel. Dr. T even listened to his podcast titled "6 Things Men Should Know About Women's Hormones."
                    Of course, like anything else, check with your Dr. after listening, but I do feel like I have learned so much. His way of thinking is very similar to how I have viewed my health for years. I love learning about how different vitamins affect my body!! I highly recommend his podcast "Vitamin C: Why is it so important?" I learned so much!!!

What I Wore- to a recent wedding



Dr. T and I spent last weekend celebrating another wedding!! Many of the weddings we have gone to are for young people that I have had the pleasure of watching grow up!! This time it was a young woman who Dr. T had the joy of seeing grow up. He is actually her Godfather so that relationship is extra special.

Here is what I wore:

I found this jumpsuit at Francesca's. I love the wide-legged pants on this! The lace top is beautiful!! I can't find this jumpsuit on the website, but I found these others that will be great for holiday parties.


This outfit is very similar to what I wore except the back has a criss/ cross. I wouldn't wear this, but it would be very cute on a young woman!! It can be found here.


This is another adorable jumpsuit. I love the wide legs and the fact that it is velvet makes it perfect for holiday parties!! It can be found here

what to wear to a wedding

You don't have to break the bank to find something fun and festive to wear to a wedding or holiday party. It just takes some conscious looking!!

I know I have many followers who live in New Mexico. There is a new Francesca's at the Santa Fe mall. Be sure to go by and check out what they have!! I got some really good deals the day I was there.

Don't forget to follow me on Instagram and Facebook. There is also a Pinterest share button at the bottom of the post!

Peak Of The Week- Things that piqued my interest!! 11-7-18

Happy Peak Of The Week. Here are some things that piqued my interest this week!! I hope you find them interesting as well!

It's still beautiful in the mountains of New Mexico, but it won't be long until all the pretty leaves are gone! Here are some pictures from my world!



Well, we as a country made it through the election!! I'm thankful for that. I think we should all commit to pray for our country. It is certainly my hope and prayer that we all come together and remember that we are ALL Americans first!! I'm working on a post about getting along with people with differing viewpoints based on a bible study I've done!! I'm hoping that it resonates with people. I'm really hoping that I can put my thoughts into something that makes sense!!! ha ha It seems to be taking me a while!!

Jelly Drops - So many of us have people that we love who are in nursing care facilities. Dehydration is a huge problem with elderly people no matter where they live. This is a great idea and something that I will be following!!

23 Tech Gadgets - There are some great gift ideas on this list. I have to admit that # 13 the hidden USB camera is a bit scary to me!!



Coffee May Protect Against Alzheimers and Parkinson's Diseases - Dementia seems to be taking over the lives of many people that I know and love! It's good to know that one thing I enjoy may help in the fight!!

Aldi Advent Wine Calendar -  I love Trader Joes as much as the next person, but I've been hearing about Aldi for several years. There is one fairly close to my parents' house in Texas. I hope to go the next time I'm there!! This is a fun idea for the holidays!!

Aldi Advent Cheese Calendar- This is not as pricey as the wine advent calendar and just is a fun way to celebrate the season!!

Do any of you have an Aldi nearby? If so, what should the rest of us know about shopping there? My daughter shops at one in Chicago and really likes it!!

Have a great rest of your week. It's all downhill from this Peak Of The Week!!
