Hello Friends and Fashionistas!  This is my blog!

I plan to share my OOTD and my inspiration behind my outfits.




What I wore this week 5/13 – 5/19/19

Sentence a Day – April, 2019

On the first Tuesday of the month, I join other bloggers with a recap of the previous month with a sentence (or two) every day!  I hope you enjoy this “sentence a day” blog for April.  And yes, I’m a week late!  I’m struggling to stay on top of my hobbies (blogging) while starting a new job.  I’ll get a balance soon.  But at this time I’m so far behind on reading others blogs and blogging.  Check out the pictures and enjoy the month with me…it was a different month for me.  I lost my job the first week! I made exercising a priority and I was lucky enough to get in some travel and family time.

4/1:  April Fool’s Day.  I worked from home watching my step-son, he has cerebral palsy. He is a true joy.  He had the giggles almost all day. 🙂 You may remember from previous blogs – he is 21 and the size of a 5 year old.  We call him the baby because mentally, he is a baby.  Went to body pump after work and went to bed with super sore shoulders from the class work.

4/2:  The company where I work owes money to an investment firm and we defaulted on a loan payment.  The investment firm filed foreclosure and the notice went public.  A lot of uncertainty about our future at this company.

4/3: Body pump class after work.  Dray (hubby) went with me to the class! yay!

4/4: We celebrated my step-son Jordan’s 16th birthday (a little early) after work.  You may also remember my friend’s daughter is staying with us for 6 weeks.  This is Kaitlyn in the picture with Jodan.  They quickly started actling and feeling like brother/sisters.

4/5: Last day of work.  We sent all employees home because of our company’s economic uncertainty. We know we cannot continue to pay employees due to our finances.

4/6: Dray took his 2 younger boys back to Georgia.  His oldest son, Graham, lives with us.  Kaitlyn and I went to body pump class first thing in the morning.  Then we went to the Boulder’s Farmer’s Market and to Boulder Flat Irons to take pictures. We ate lunch at Foolish Craig on Pearl Street.  Overall, a very nice day – saw flowers blooming for the first time this year!

4/7: Cleaned the house – being doing laundry 24/7 since the boys left. Dray took me, Kaitlyn and his son Graham to dinner with the Brewmaster at The Post restaurant and brewery in Boulder.  Before dinner we walked around and enjoyed the Tulip Festival on Pearl Street.


4/8:  First work day not working.  I walked to my friend Cathy’s house, then we attended Gentle Yoga class.  It was warm enough to wear a tank top!  67 degrees.  I went to body pump class later in the day.

4/9: I went into work to process the last payroll for employees.  Ran into troubles – looks like NO ONE will get paid for the last two weeks of work.  This makes an bad situation even worse for everybody! It feels awful to not be able to pay employees for their hard work – mine too!

4/10: Since I’m not working I was able to stay downtown at the Westin with Dray while he attended a Beer Festival (for work).  It was fun to explore downtown – even in the rain and then snow!  Ball Corp (hubby’s employer) sponsored Stringdusters concert at the Filmore Auditorium.

4/11:  Dray is back at the festival.  Kaitlyn came downtown to join me and she and I went shopping (mostly window shopping) before heading home. I love seeing signs of Spring mixed with snow!   I played Mahjong with the neighbor ladies in the evening. I won 1 game of 3.

4/12:  I had a telephone interview with McGuckin Hardware in Boulder.  Fingers crossed this is my next job opportunity.  I made gumbo for dinner.


4/13:  I went to body pump class.  It snowed again and then within an hour it was sunny and all the snow melted. Dray and I watched The Masters Golf Tourney.

4/14: We watched history being made at The Masters!  I went for a 4.2 mile walk/jog.  It felt great to get out and run again.  It’s been months since I ran.

4/15:  I cleaned up around the house, did laundry, etc.  I went to body pump class in the evening.  I baked pork chops and roasted veggies for dinner.

4/16: I ran/walked 4.2 miles.  I met Dray for lunch.  Dray, Kaitlyn, Graham and I went to Injoy for dinner – a local restaurant.  Today would’ve been my parent’s 66th wedding anniversary (mom died 3 years ago).

4/17: I had an morning interview with McGuckin’s Hardware.  I think it went really well!  Body pump class in the evening.

4/18:  I went into my old office to process some unemployment documents for employees (guess I’m a volunteer HR Manager now).  It was a spur of the moment decision for me to join Dray on a business trip – since he gets a companion pass for me (due to his Southwest Airlines status). We flew out of Denver at 5:30 pm to Grand Rapids, MI.

4/19:  Dray and I slept in a little, then walked to Founder’s Brewery Tap  Room and had a wonderful lunch.  Dray had a few afternoon appointments at the Brewery so I explored downtown Grand Rapids.  We walked to/from Sovengard Restaurant. and enjoyed a wonderful dinner.

4/20:  Dray and enjoyed a nice breakfast at the hotel – free due to his Marriott status.  We went to the Black Beer Festival at Founders’s Brewery all afternoon.  Listened to good bands and met lots of employees and their families.

4/21:  Dray and I woke up at 3:30 am and flew back to Denver on an early flight.  Once I got home I went back to bed for 4 more hours!  We enjoyed a relaxing day. We watched If Beale Street Could Talk movie – it was very good.  Dray’s son, Graham, made spagetti for dinner.

4/22:  I had a 2:30 interview at McGuckin’s Hardware. Again, I feel good about it!  Dray and I went to body pump class that evening.  Today is the 3rd anniversary of my Mom’s death.  Two of my sisters are spending the day with Dad.

4/23:  I ran/walked 4.2 miles. I cut some grass/bushes around the house – preparing for spring growth.  I made shrimp scampi for dinner.

4/24:  I booked my trip to Fierce Con 2019.  I made shepard’s pie for dinner and packed for my trip to see my Dad.

4/25:  Up at 3:30 am to make a 6:00 am flight to Atlanta.  I take a shuttle from the Altanta airport to Cartersville, GA (about 50 miles north of Atlanta).  My dad met me at the shuttle and we had a nice lunch, and planned out day of my 7 day visit.  I went to the grocery store and got food to cook for him while I’m there.  I made spagetti for dinner.

4/26:  I painted the trim in his two bathrooms white.  You may remember, last month I painted his kitchen.  The trim painting is slow work – took about 7 hours.  Check out the before/after pics!  In between painting, we went for a pedicure.

4/27:  I pressure washed Dad’s house.  It took about 5 hours to do 2 sides of his house.  One side was really dirty from pollen, mold and spider webs.  I made pork chops, yellow rice, gravy and a salad for dinner.  Then I got back out and finished the other two sides of the house.  I was all done by 8:00 pm.  Feels so good to be done!  This was a big job!

4/28:  I went to church with Dad.  Then we drove about an hour to Tate, GA to see the house my neice and her husband are planning to buy.  Then we went to both of my neices and my sister’s shops in Tate, Mimi’s Eats & Treats (my sister’s cafe/gift shop), Bell’s Pharmacy (my neice is the Pharmacist/owner) and 53 Market (my other neice’s home decor shop).  It was so good to see everybody!  I love their shops too!  Notice my 2 year old grand neice, Charlee, sitting amongst the bread.

4/29:  I drove about an hour to Jasper, GA to model for Daisy’s Boutique.  I modeled from 11-4, 8 outfits.  Then I went to Mimi’s Eats & Treats/Bell’s Pharmacy to see the family again.  I received a verbal offer of employment from McGuckin’s Hardware in Boulder for the Human Resources Generalist position!  We all went out to celebrate with a mexican dinner and margarita’s!

4/30: Today would’ve been my Mom’s birthday.  I drove me and Dad 3 hours to Crossville, TN to visit my sister Karen and her husband.  We had a nice dinner and explored her property.  It was a beautiful day.  Then I drove 3 hours back home to Cartersville, GA.

4/31: Today I pressure washed Dad’s screened porch (ceiling and walls) and wiped down the patio furniture from pollen.  I also pressure washed his shed in the backyard.  We got the screen porch all set up again after lunch.  Then I painted 2 bar stools for Dad’s kitchen and scrubbed his bathroom shower with an electric scrubber, Dray ordered for him from Amazon.  It works!

The next day I flew home.  Time to start a new chapter – a new job!

Overall, it was a good month – a month of change, reflection and productivity!

I hope your April was wonderful!  Thank you for reading my sentence a day blog for the month.  I appreciate your comments.

Sentence a Day – March, 2019

On the first Tuesday of the month, I join other bloggers with a recap of the previous month with a sentence (or two) every day!  I hope you enjoy this “sentence a day” blog for March.   It’s a great way to get to know me…by getting an insight into my every day.  Check out the pictures and enjoy the month with me…I started the month in Trinidad for Carnival!

Middle Sister Style

FB: Middle Sisters Style



3/1:  We are in Trinidad celebrating Carnival with friends! Unfortunately, upon arrival Dray is sick with a fever.  😦   While Dray rested, I went with my friend to pickup our costumes for Carnival.  It took hours and I didn’t get what I ordered – but close enough to not stay and try to work it out!  To say the pick up place was a mad house is an major understatement.  U N O R G A N I Z E D !  Hundreds picking up costumes – small place – hot temps – and they were not ready at all!

3/2:  The ladies went shopping at a couple local bazaars.  Dray is still home resting, feeling feverish.


3/3:  Local friends came over to our friends home and we really enjoyed their company.  We talked and talked for hours outside on the patio.  Beautiful weather and constant breeze.  So tropical!  Dray is feeling better (yay!) and starting to eat a little.  We all took a nap in preparation for an all night party/parade.



3/4:  We danced in the streets from 1:00 am – 9:00 am.  It was a blast!  Everybody is in groups (called bands) and we following the music semi-truck (see in pic 3) and behind is us is the drink semi-truck (see in pic 4) with a dozen bartenders in blue tees.  And this goes on for miles all thru Port-of-Spain – one band after another. Thousands out celebrating in different bands of about 250 people each.  One ticket for the event gets you a band tee, some food to start the evening and unlimited drinks.  Each band is uniquely dressed.  Our band was called Coco-Devils – so you’ll see us with cocoa (and paint) all over us and devil horns. Everybody is having a blast and it feels like a big family.  After we got home (around 9:30 am) and napped a little and took it easy all day.


3/5:  Carnival began at 7:00 am and ended around 2:30 pm.  We danced in the streets again all dressed in elaborate feather trimmed costumes – locally made.  Trinidad’s carnival celebrates the spirit of their people.  Everybody is warm and happy, so many smiles.  It feels very safe and welcoming.  It was a hot day, but thankfully we had a nice breeze.  We still got so sunburned. We went swimming after we got home and that was so refreshing.


3/6:  Dray went golfing.  I went shopping with the ladies. Notice the parrot at one of the shops.  Parrots are all over the island.

3/7:  We had such a wonderful visit!  We departed Port of Spain, Trinidad just after midnight and arrived in Houston at 5:30 am.  After a couple of hours of layover we got on our flight and arrived in Denver around 9:30 am.  Both Dray and I are feeling the effects of a cold (yes, I caught what he had), so we are tired and not feeling great.  We relaxed and napped all day.

3/8:  Back to work to get caught up.


3/9:  We are still not feeling good – so we didn’t work out today.  We did pickup Dray’s nephew (11 years old) at the airport.  He is staying with us for a few days while he is on spring break from school in Florida.  His first flight and first chance to see snow!  I took a nap for a couple hours.  Kaitlyn, my friend’s daughter,  came me over, we had a nice dinner, we all watched a movie and got in the hot tub.

3/10: Relaxing Sunday.

3/11:  Busy day at work.  Starting to feel better, so it back to Body Pump class after work. First class this month!

3/12:  Dray’s nephew flew back home.  Grocery shopping after work. Sore from Body Pump!



3/13:  Bomb cyclone!  Left work early due to white out conditions.  Our house windows and doors were covered with snow we basically lived in an igloo for the day! Just look at my hair when I braved the wind and cold!  I made homemade chili.


The Housewives of Vista Ridge (Vista Ridge is our subdivision) had our monthly Skype call.  Two of the group moved (to Hawaii and San Diego) so we keep up with monthly Skype calls.  You’ll see I’m with Kaitlyn.  Her mom is bottom right friend in Hawaii.


3/14: What a difference a day makes!  Today was sunny and we enjoyed the most beautiful sunset over the Rocky Mountains.  Went to Body Pump class after work.  Then to a neighbors house to enjoy a piece of pie on Pi day!

3/15: After work I got busy packing for my weekend getaway.


3/16:  Early morning flight to Phoenix.  I met my cousin at the Denver airport and we both flew to Phoenix to meet up with 4 cousins.  Our DNA, via 23 & Me website, just identified that our Mom’s were sisters.  Look at the poster they greeted us with at the airport!  They are so funny!  Yes, she is my cousin – not my wife!  🙂  Upon arrival we went to Morning Glory Cafe at The Farm at South Mountain for brunch.  We spent the rest of the day at one of our cousin’s homes getting to know each other.  We loved the warm weather and sitting outside.


3/17: We all met for breakfast and then spent the afternoon talking and laughing.  We all celebrated St. Patrick’s Day with (temporary) green hair and dinner out.


3/18:  We shopped in Carefree, Phoenix before my afternoon flight back to Denver.

3/19:  Work and then home.  Went to bed early – tired from a fun weekend full of laughter.

3/20: Work and then to body pump class.  Tough work out tonight!



3/21:  After work we went to eat Mexican and celebrate a big day of earnings with the stock market. We believe in celebrating! The margarita was delicious! Especially when my chest and triceps are so sore from body pump!

3/22:  Left work early – company is potentially closing – filed foreclosure documents.  We just relaxed and enjoyed the evening – listening to music.  Still so sore from body pump class.

3/23:  Early body pump class.  Got my hair trimmed and highlighted.  Then we met with a Tax Accountant. 😦  BTW, we are not happy with the new tax laws! We had plans to go to a friends house for a get together, but our mood was totally ruined by having to pay so much in taxes.  We did nothing different from last year (when we got  a refund) and this year we owe BIG!

3/24:  Got busy cleaning the house and doing laundry. Got in some relaxation too!

3/25: Worked from home.  Body pump class after work.

3/26: Work and then home.  My friend’s daughter, Kaitlyn, is spending the week with us, so we talked and talked catching up!  Oh the life of a 20 year old! 🙂

3/27:  Work and then body pump class.

3/28:  Met Cathy, the only other local housewife of Vista Ridge, for happy hour. Fun time catching up!

3/29: After work I went to see Five Feet Apart with my step-son and Kaitlyn.  It was good…and sad.


3/30:  Woke up to a couple inches of snow.  The second pic above shows a coyote during his morning hunt.  Can you see it?  I went to morning body pump class and then home.  Dray’s boys arrive for a week of Spring break.  I went shopping with Kaitlyn in Boulder later in the afternoon.


3/31:  I cleaned house and spent some time relaxing.  We watched Eat, Pray, Love after dinner.  We asked Kaitlyn to live with us until she moves to Hawaii (Mid-May) to be with her Mom and Step-dad.  They used to be our neighbors and her mom is one of my best friends from the Housewives of Vista Ridge.

Hope your March was one to remember!  Thank you for reading my blog.  I appreciate any comments and/or suggestions.  I so appreciate your follow! xo Cindy

How We Style Spring!

I’ve joined 10 friends, all over 50 years young, to show how we style Spring.  Take a look and let me know what you think – check out their blogs and follow them on instagram to get your daily inspiration for style.

I’ll start with me.  I’m wearing the super hot trending bike shorts in black with a black blazer and a bright yellow sweater underneath.  The secret to pulling off this trend is to wear something longer on top – like a blazer or a long shirt untucked.  The way I styled the bike shorts is a little more business-like so you could wear them to work if you are ready to brave this trend.  I’m finishing off the look with a black belt bag.  Belt bags are also trending big!  If you haven’t tried them – they are wonderful for shopping and traveling especially, since you keep your hands free. I like the look and I wear it all the time.  Sometimes I wear the belt bag over my shoulder – across the front of my body when it doesn’t feel right to have a belt around my waist.


If you can’t do a belt bag – I’m showing the same outfit with a wide belt.

Jess of Elegantly Dressed and Stylish is wearing a floral dress and a crossbody bag.  Cross body bags, especially smaller ones, are also trending.  Florals are always perfect for Spring.  Jess is also wearing a statement earring – which is the trend in jewelry!

Emma from Style Splash is wearing neon pink and the hot animal print trend – zebra! Neon is trending big as well as animal prints!  This is a win-win!


Julie from Fashion Trends and Friends is looking so on trend in her snakeskin pants with the hot new color for Spring – Coral.  Snakeskin is having is BIG moment this Spring.  Get something in snakeskin to try it out!


Michelle from Seechele Style is wearing a polka dot dress in yellow with a white jean jacket.  Dots are trending as well as white jean jackets!


Nancy from Nancy’s Fashion Style is looking on trend in her dark floral skirt with a bright orange top.  Dark floral is a great transitional piece to wear into Spring.  The bright orange really updates the look!


Nicole from High Latitude Style is showing us that even if there is still snow – you can look on trend in white boots and a dress.  Pearls are also trending big in jewelry for Spring so layer them on!  Such a pretty and classic trend!


You know April showers bring May flowers and Nina from Sharing a Journey is wearing a pastel pink trench coat to show you how to look on trend in the rain.  No one would notice the rain in the pretty outfit!


Andy from Pearls and Pantsuits is wearing a white denim jacket with blue denim jeans.  So fun to mix it up and denim is always trending.  White denim is a hot Spring trend.

pearls and pansuits

Robin from Hello I’m 50ish is looking extra classy in her Chanel cross body black leather handbag.  Cross body bags are trending!


And last but not least, Suzanne from Ask Suzanne Bell is wearing a denim trench coat over a striped linen skirt.  Trench coats are trending and a denim one will definitely get lots of wear.  Stripes are also trending!


I hope you liked seeing my friends in their Spring trends.  Did you check out any of their blogs?  Follow my friends – you’ll be so inspired!

Drop a note and let me know what you think of these trends and which ones you are planning to try out!

Sentence a day – February, 2019

On the first Tuesday of the month, I join other bloggers with a recap of the previous month with a sentence (or two) every day!  I hope you enjoy the “sentence a day” blog for February.   It’s a great way to get to know me…by getting an insight into my every day.  Check out the pictures and enjoy my February with me…I started the month at my Dad’s house in Cartersville, GA.

Middle Sister Style

FB: Middle Sisters Style

2/1:  I woke up and painted Dad’s kitchen for a few hours and then I met two of my sisters at a spa to celebrate my sister, Sherry’s, birthday.  I got a pedicure.  Sherry got a facial.  Val got a massage.  Then we all went to Dad’s house for dinner.  Sherry (and all of us) was surprised to find out that her youngest daughter, Lindsey, is pregnant.  Sherry and Rick will be grandparents again!  So exciting!

2/2:  I went to Daisy’s Boutique and took pictures of 8 outfits for her to use as marketing. Then I went to my sister’s cafe in Tate, GA.  After her shop closed, a couple of my sisters, niece and her baby, all went to the outlet mall for an hour or so.

2/3:  I painted from 9:00 am- 4:30 pm. I was so close to finish painting Dad’s kitchen.  I didn’t have time to finish the bottom half of the back door or scrape the paint off the windows.  I had a late evening flight home to Denver.

2/4:   I started getting sick on the plane to Denver last night and today I had a full blown cold.  Sneezing and runny nose.  Yuck.  I went straight home from work and went to bed.  Slept 12 hours!

2/5:  Feeling better today.

2/6:  We got snow!  I’m feeling better but still taking it easy and going to bed early.


2/7:  Got in an early morning workout – shoveled the driveway and actually worked up a sweat in -8 degrees!

2/8:  Work and then home for a relaxing evening with hubby.

2/9:  Body pump class first thing.  Then Dray and I sat in the hot tub.  After a big breakfast we went sledding in the neighborhood.  We went to a couple different nearby parks to check out the sledding hills before going to dinner at Ramen.


2/10: I won a down jacket from Happy Goat Lucky – so I had to get a picture of it!  I love it!  I especially love the fur trim!  It was a relaxing day in the hot tub and Dray made a delicious crab boil for dinner.

2/11:  Body pump class after work.

2/12:  25 minutes on the Elliptical machine after work.  After a dip in the hot tub, I gave Dray a massage.

2/13: Dray and I went to a Valentines Day Meet up at Edward Jones before heading to Body Pump class and enjoying a dip in the hot tub there.


2/14:  Dray and I enjoyed Valentines Day by eating dinner at The Post restaurant in Lafayette. We met two couples there and really had fun!

2/15: I got on the elliptical for 20 minutes after work.  Ate too much yesterday!

2/16:  Body pump class first thing.  Then hubby and I got in the hot tub there, then home to enjoy a nice breakfast.  I cleaned house a little while Dray made fried rice and BBQ pork. Our friends daughter, Kaitlyn, came over to spend the weekend.  We watched the Hate you Give movie.  It is really good.  We went to the Denver airport at 9:00 pm to pickup Dray’s 3 boys.  Winter school break!

2/17:  We enjoyed a nice breakfast. Kaitlyn and I went shopping a little.  We got in the hot tub and froze our ears off!  Almost!  It was windy and around 20 degrees.  Then we watched Bridesmaids movie.

2/18:  President’s Day.  I watched Dray’s son with cerebral palsy during the day.  Dray and I went to the Community Center for Body pump and a dip in the hot tub that evening.


2/19:  Back to work.  Dray picked up Chinese for dinner. Yum!  I got on the elliptical for 30 minutes after dinner.  The sun starting to set over the Rocky Mountains was so pretty.  Hard to capture from my Jeep window…while driving. :}


2/20:  After work I got on the elliptical for 30 minutes.  Then we took a group of under-privileged kids to see Into the Spider-verse movie.  It was really good and I’m not one to usually go to super hero/cartoon type movies.  This movie had a much deeper message about overcoming and believing in yourself.

2/21:  After work I went to Body Pump class, then home for our monthly Skype call with friends that used to be neighbors.  One friend moved to Hawaii and one to San Diego.  So this is how we keep up with each other!

2/22:  Dray’s middle son turned 21 years old today!  He has cerebral palsy and he is our baby – he is the size of a 5 year old and mentally a baby.  So, on his birthday, we gave him all the Doritos he wanted, let him get in the hot tub (his favorite activity) and gave him extra love!

2/23:  We went to body pump class and then the whole family went sledding.  It was so much fun!

2/24:  Day at home cleaning the house and relaxing.  Dray’s 3 boys (my step-sons) in pics above.

2/25: Dray took his 2 younger sons back to Georgia today – winter school break is over. I went to body pump class after work.

2/26:  Work and then home.

2/27: After work we packed for Trinidad vacation.

2/28:  We flew to Houston and then to Port of Spain, Trinidad to visit friends for Carnival.  It was 9 hours of flights.  I watched Bohemian Rhapsody and Can You Forgive me on the plane to Trinidad. Both very good films.

Be sure to watch for my Sentence a Month next month so you can see more pics from Carnival in Trinidad…and much more.

Hope you had a good month – thanks for reading my blog post. xo, Cindy
