Turquoise With Gold









hi Everyone!  Finally.  A thrift outfit post.  Let's all jump on our chairs and celebrate!!!  lol  I have tried twice over as many weeks to do a photo shoot but you could see the 'tired' in the pics.  After analyzing them, I decided to just kiss = 'keep it simple, silly'.  So a new turquoise stripe top is here for y'all!! But you know these heels/sandals? well, they are 'death walking'.  {perhaps as to why they were given away in the first place?}  I just about broke my neck wearing them for this shoot; probably because I'm not super strong yet. Luckily I was inside and my sofa was right near by me ~ whew.

 


I really shouldn't sell these shoes or give them back to Savers, should I?
I MEAN ...I AM SAYING THEY ARE SCARY AND THEN I UNLOAD THEM?     NO, not good.


As far as I know, my first chemo round will be tomorrow morning!
ANY TAKERS?

Blossoms and Scampering


via

via

hi Everyone!  Pear blossoms are hard to ignore, especially in my own back yard.  These particular photo were taken as part of my Easter Sunday greeting on Instagram. {see HERE}  This  little tike?  He is LL, my grandson as he is canvasing my backyard for the Easter Eggs that were strategically placed just for him.  We were going to head to my oldest daughter's on Sunday but both my daughter and I were so done! {LL's mommy is going to have another baby soon}  Meanwhile, we enjoyed the warm day and the blossoms.  It was great fun seeing this little guy scampering around for his next colored, plastic, prize filled egg!


After I snapped this pic, I realized that he somewhat resembles
that cute little guy 'Calvin' in Calvin and Hobbs,  doesn't he?



Are you feeling Spring in the air where you live?
SURE HOPE SO.

hi Everyone!  Hope you have had some fun filled days with Easter candy, egg hunts and family dinners.  I felt great for most of the weekend, but had to fore-go my family gathering due to fatigue, bummer.  I did a couple of photo shoots but they didn't 'pan-out' once again. {I feel I have lost my touch}.  Yet, the next two days are away from hospitals and appointments, so I hope to be in blog land more and more, if it is in the 'cards'.  lol  Speaking of cards, a sweet blogger bud sent me a cute card and a $20 Gift Card to the best store on earth Savers!  I will get my mojo back, I will!  I indubitably will!!!


I had fun creating this ensemble.
What item do you love covet and have to have from this collection?


Here is a bonus pic from the failed photo shoots
Can you tell my hair is a lot shorter?
I FIGURE IT SHOULD ONLY BE 2" LONG RATHER THAN 5" WHEN IT FALLS OUT. 
IT IS REALLY SHORT IN THE BACK.

Think Pink!





Yes, this pic is new!  I took it a few weeks ago on a good day but most of the others were weird, but this one is in PINK!  I wasn't very imaginative and the black hoodie was a bit boring, but none the less it is me in the "pink".  

This week's events have been so tumultuous and humbling all at the same time.  I want my blog to be about my thrift deals, my thrift style, etc.  But with my life being so consumed by the the surgeries, the doctor appointments, the test, the scans, the nurse phone calls and the naps, {we can't forget the naps}, that my sweet, simple thrift deals have definitely taken a hit.  But I will prevail!  Dang cancer will not!  I learned good news this week that there is not any cancer in my bones!  I also met with my surgeon yesterday and she told me my 'margins' {the 1/8th of an inch around the tumors that were removed} were cancer free!

I am rescheduled for next friday, April 25th for my first round of chemo!

I sure love you guys!  

Get your mammograms if you are over 40 on a yearly basis.  You'll be so glad you did even if they do detect cancer.  Trust me on that one.

DANG! and ...Mild Boho




WHAT???
~ ya ~

Here's the deal.  My onco {short for cancer dr or oncologist} is EXTREMELY thorough.  She noted at my last appointment that I had an 'elevated' liver enzyme.  So she ordered a bone scan {which I had on Tuesday = NO CANCER IN MY BONES - YAY!!!} and she ordered a ct scan of my organs and brain.  Good right?  ya.  However, there were too many complicating circumstances involved and I would have been figuratively jumping through too many hoops all prior to the Friday 'Chemo Day'.  So little Miss Renae here took matters in to her own hands and cancelled the ct scan for tomorrow.  Well, that got my onco's and her nurse's attention and they decided to rationally realize they were placing too many events upon me ALL AT ONCE.   I am very pleased with the decision, however, all ye in Blogland are super supporting me for my 'THINK PINK' campaign.  So let's keep the plan for this Friday!  I will still do my planned "Fashion item Friday" post based on 'THINK PINK'  and you guys are so awesome and fun that you can decide what you all want to do. OKAY?   k.   



Mild Boho
via
In the meantime, I have created this 'Mild Boho' montage that will be fun for you guys!  I will be getting more and more of this type of post going on when I do have chemo start up.  So, now I get to enjoy my Easter weekend, go to Easter Egg Hunts with Big Boy LL and see my family on Saturday when my chemo would have been 'i d k' what?  I've never had chemo before.  I have had surgeries before and scans before and such but never ever chemo.  So I am rather grateful for the conflicts that caused the postponement because now it is resolved to be taking place next week and we will go from there!

I sure love each of you!  You lift my heart and you have been oh so thoughtful.  I could just eat y'all up like those fun, little, yellow PEEPS!!!  lol



What part of this 'Mild Boho' do you LOVE?



Am I ever going to model my thrift shop finds?
NOW WITH A BIT OF A BREAK FROM DOCTORS AND HOSPITALS THINGS COULD BE 
BETTER IN THE PHOTO SHOOT DEPARTMENT --- FINALLY!  YAY AGAIN!!!
