Hey everyone! First, I would just like to say a big "THANK YOU" to all of you who have left me such sweet comments and virtual hugs over the last couple of weeks! You were all so compassionate when I blogged about our son and family's plan to move and then their actual departure. That was much harder than either The Man or I expected. So this past week we just kind of took things slow and easy.
As I posted on Saturday, it was our 45th Wedding Anniversary. We don't feel the need to have big celebrations or buy elaborate gifts -- we love each other and have no need to prove that to ourselves or anyone else. That being said, we did go out and do a bit of shopping......lol!
I really needed a new wallet but always put off buying one until I'm totally frustrated with my existing one. I think selecting a new wallet is much harder than it should be -- at least for me! This one kind of beckoned me from the get-go with that pretty turquoise color, and it pretty much fit my criteria for the inside, too -- WIN-WIN! I was definitely not planning on a new purse, but this navy and white just jumped out at me. I think it's the perfect summer purse! And BTW, The Man also got a new wallet and some new slippers; they just didn't make the cut for a cute pic! We also made a stop at TJ's for some flowers -- aren't they just bright and cheery?
Yesterday, being Father's Day and the first one without any one around but me, was pretty difficult for The Man. So we decided to combine our Anniversary and Father's Day and go have a really nice meal at Stuart Anderson's Black Angus Steakhouse. That was a very good choice!
I did do a bit of tweaking in my living room and dining room this past week and will share that in a day or two. Oh, and The Man is working once again on finishing our closet, so.......one day soon, I hope, I'll be sharing that. Hope y'all have a great week!
Glad you are feeling some better, it is an awfully tough transition. I'm sure the kids are feeling it too. Love your new purse/wallet! Enjoy your week and make sure to 'stay cool'!! Blessings, CindyReplyDelete
Glad you're starting to perk up. :) I love your new wallet! My current one was a Liz Claiborne find at JCP on clearance for $6. Love it and now wish I'd bought two. :) You're right, that is the perfect summer purse! The navy and white is a great combo!ReplyDelete
I feel the same way about wallets. So, so hard to choose.ReplyDelete
Glad you are feeling better! Shopping sometimes is the best therapy. :) Love your new wallet!ReplyDelete
It is definitely a good idea to keep busy and it sounds like that is exactly what you two are doing! Now I want steak and it's only 7:30 in the morning. BTW, I love your wallet. What a fun color!ReplyDelete
