When I watch these little guys~

On the field, it's hard to believe they are 6-7 year olds. The speed and agility they display on a baseball field amazes me so that I am in constant awe.

Watching them make double plays without a second thought, seeing them swing a bat with power that sends the ball to the back of the field, hearing the coach give field assignments and watching as each one takes their position in which they were directed, sometimes, it makes us as parents forget just how young they are~

But we are reminded. We realize how small when a baseball strikes the batter in the knee, or a fly ball hits the catcher in the face, or innocent play results in broken arms, blacked eyes, mashed, cut, or jammed fingers...

And then the tears start to flow, and they run in the arms of comfort- they are comforted with soft whispers of;

"it will be alright",
"relax",
"breath",
"let me look at it".....
"All better?"

We are reminded that they are still our little boys, no matter how fast they run, how hard they hit, or how good they can throw a ball- they still need us to comfort them and let them know "it will be alright"

and it will....

Who says you can't wear a cardigan...

And still look stylish?? Hubs (& a few buds) think cardigans are for older ladies- but as a lover of all things paisley, flowered, or just printed~ I think they are all wrong.

I wore this guy to school paired with black wedges today and my "younger" classmates stated that they would have never thought to wear those shoes with a cardigan, that makes a late clothing lover such as myself smile!

It actually makes me smile even more now that I can navigate through my closet and see everything I have since the "great closet clean out"!!!

I have...

A lot of black in my closet, not because I think it's slimming but more because it seems to always suck me into the rack of clothing it lays or hangs upon...

Today's "outfit of the day" (ootd):
Black boots, denim jeans, black scoop neck sweater, and black and white striped cardigan...

Time for class....

The closet clean out...

Has not only opened a world of fashion I never knew existed! But has prompted me to spend at least 20 minutes during the day playing dress up (also to help decide what goes and stays...) Today's "outfit of the day"....

A white sweater, black scarf, short pleated skirt, black thigh high socks, and black booties... Put them all together and you have an outfit that resembles the one below...

Not to far over the top with just the right amount of nice :)

Amusement parks...

I don't do them as often as I use to. My 17 y/o is traumatized when it comes to roller coasters after his very first experience and in my own opinion... any other ride seems boring-

My 7 y/o has been asking non-stop to go to every carnival that has come to town over the last several months and we finally made plans to take him to enjoy the amusement park. The first thing he sees as we get close are the colorful tracks of every roller coaster open for all to ride... All he does is smile and say I want to ride that blue guy right there... After a lot of talking I finally convince him to start small and we would work our way up to the "blue guy". He agrees, we start small, get bigger, and then tackle a large coaster with major heels and tons of loops~ he is stoked and wanting more. We were heading to the "blue guy" but Unfortunately..... we had to cut our trip short~ Around dusk, the smoke started to blow, creepy music began to play, guys with chainsaws and killer clowns from outer space began to emerge from the bushes...

The little girl that came with us had a major breakdown (fear) so we called it a day and promised 7 y/o that we would definitely come back when they are not having Hallowscream in the evenings other wise...




 
Great day!

Comfy wear

I asked my sweetie if he would redo my closet so that I may have more storage for shoes, bags, etc...

He told me to clean out my closet and then we will talk. So I cleaned, sorted, donated... found some items I either forgot I owned or thought I had lost- at the top of the found list... A pair of lace up boots I brought on sale at the end of the season (last year) happy faces all over the place!

Lunch...

At my house, we have changed the mindset of "whatever food we have in the house" to, "it has to be healthy" especially after loosing the extra pounds I had gained when I retired from the military... 

Since then, I found that... 1. My workout routine slowed (a lot) and 2. The weight will quietly say hello (again) if you are not careful
(@_@)

With that being said, walking is now my new best friend, healthy snacks are the only thing allowed in the cupboards, and if we eat lunch- it can't be processed, chips/candy, or purchased from a fast food joint!!

Time to stay fit and healthy... We are not getting any younger...
