It Is Time For a Break


hi Everyone!


All summer I wanted to
make sure my blog didn't suffer while I was.
Where I should have taken it easy, I didn't,
but now I need a break to catch up and clear my head.
I miss my family! I want to spend every possible moment with them.
I was 'chemo sick' all summer!
I missed out on many family experiences.
I want this winter to be full of
joy, laughs, hugs and kisses for my
grandchildren.
chemo changed me.
I have a need to be less on the computer
and more with reality.



the.blog.can.wait.


I am taking a break from now until 
February 2, 2015
(first Monday in February).


Fashion ITEM Friday 
will resume in February, also.






If you would like to reach me
please see my email address on my contact page.
Or you may leave comment here.

I will continue making occasional posts
on Instagram @simplesequins during this break.



Love Love Love 
to each of you,
my dear friends!


bye-bye, ...for a while,

just saying: Baby Z's 1st Birthday





Tomorrow afternoon is Baby Z's 1st Birthday Party!!!!! 


Yes, sweet, little, troubled birth, baby boy is lively and healthy 
and hasn't even had any type of illness at all in his first year
after he spent his first week of life in the hospital!

I do feel so much better now  -  finally  -  no more pain!
•  I do have energy again but stairs and longs walks are still a challenge
  I am smiling more and that makes HM feel relieved {man, he has helped me soooo much!}
  Life is starting to get back to normal; less doctor appointments - more home life


Oh how I love this guy's little face.

blog hop: Fashion ITEM Friday #48 . costumes


  hi Everyone!
 

My fashion ITEM today:

halloween costumes


{Numbers 1,2,3 & 5 are oldest daughters kids and
Numbers 4 and 6 are youngest daughters kids}
I WAS REALLY SCARY --- A DOCTOR!!!  MMWWHAHAAHHA, 
yes and Captain Jack Sparrow is my oldest grand 'daughter', ya she was Captain Jack.  lol
My daughter's made most of these costumes for their kids.  
They are 'sew' creative!!!


OLDEST DAUGHTER WITH CUTE BABY Z  
{Minnie and Mickey}

YOUNGEST DAUGHTER (of 2) W/ BABY LML 
{Crook with her Loot,  see "$" on his tummy?}

Last night we went to our church's Trunk or Treat.  You know kind of a play on "Trick or Treat", but it is more fun!  I love participating and sharing at a Trunk or Treat because it is done before Halloween (extra party) and it is done in the evening / dusk light so you can see all the cute costumes and the space is controlled in the parking lot where all are safe, everyone opens their trunks or the hatchbacks or whatever on their vehicles and they shares candy with the children as they parade around the circle.  My daughter's families came too and we had a super fun time!!!  


Sure hope your HALLOWEEN will be / is fun!  
It is suppose to be Fun!  

The ghouls and the goblins can just take a hike!   
Maawwwhaaahaaa!!!




HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

polyvore: Boyfriend Jeans Option 4



Springtime in Autumn
via

COAT  | HAT | EARRINGS | SCARF SHIRT | JEANS | WATCH | POLISH  | BOOTS | PURSE

hi Everyone!  Option 4 or the Finale of the Boyfriend Jeans is here today.  Sure hope you don't mind seeing two polyvore posts in a row.  Sure hope not.  This time the boyfriend jeans are going the distance.  This YELLOW coat was irresistible.  Then as I built up around it, I discovered the kid in me came out.  I sent it to publish and the next thing I knew I had selected (accidentally, for sure) a solid gray top that was over $200.  Gulp and yikes! So I switch it out for the hilarious Donald Duck face "Genius" rather, for around $21 instead.  Yes, it is more fun to have cool threads and not spend a fortune getting them.


Getting myself back to posing is not in the cards, right now.
RADIATION IS A BIT HARDER ON ME THAN I HAD PLANNED / HOPED.
It is over as far as getting the doses each day but the burning still burns and will for about 10 more days. GREAT, HUH?

JACKET  |  HAT  | EARRINGS | TOP | NECKLACE | BRACELET | JEANS | RING | CLUTCH | LIPSTICK | POLISHFLATS


hi Everyone!  Option 3 of "working" these boy-friend jeans is more dressy.  I am loving the pointy flats because we have such lovely weather in Utah lately.  I am not a necklace-wearing gal but I love the look of chunky, icy stones over creamy lace.  But my fave item is the blazer!  I love it's Sgt. Pepper's / European military styling especially in the solid black, which is awesome.  I picked blue polish cuz nothin' else was blue.  Once again each item in these post are under $50 each.  Oh, I could find the items that cost more but I prefer to stay on my thrifty side of life and keep a more practical budget to these inspirations for all y'all.



What is your favorite item here?


Would you wear this ensem to what; dining out, art gallery ...or?
