About Me

My photo
I have spent a great deal of my life battling illness. I suffered from Crohn's Disease and eventually had abdominal surgery, thwarting the Crohn's and budding cancer cells. Since my surgery in 1995 I have been relatively free from Crohns', although I had several subsequent surgeries related to my ileostomy..When my disease was in remission, I don't think my husband realized how bad it could get, but he has stood by me. I also have suffered from various autoimmune disorders and am diagnosed with Stage IV Kidney Disease. Fortunately, I am maintaining and do not need dialysis at this point. We adopted our son and later found out he had cerebral palsy, so he became my career. Dan has had two surgeries and tons of therapy and is able to walk because of it. He is a college graduate and is employed as an Information Specialist. We are very proud of his accomplishements. I am now part of the retired generation and still getting used to the idea. I do enjoy crafting, traveling and being with family and friends. I am active in my church and feel that the hardships we endure are there to build our faith. I like to live life in the "now" as we never know how much time is left.

Why Didn't I Wear This?

Blouse: Avon; Capris: Bonworth, Shoes: Beal's Outlet
This is my favorite outfit.  The blouse is flowey (is that a word) and comes to V as does the necklace to elongate my look.  I have my favorite jewelry on and my favorite shoes.  My son hates to take my picture.  I don't have any photographers here, so I do my best.  I should have worn this when I got my church portrait taken.  Instead, I wore a white blouse, the collar was crooked, and I looked like the Stay Puff Marshmallow!  These are my "cruise shoes"  when hubby and I were planning on a cruise...which didn't happen.

Now you know why I'm not a hand model...LOL

These are the shoes I bought the other day for $10

Bear Traps 85% off from Younkers!
I love to shop!  Yesterday, I went to get my Halloween Costume or parts of it.  Should be fun!  Then I found some PJ's at Tuesday's that say "I Love to Shop."  Had to get them!

You look lovely and I think FLOWY is a word!! I use it alot. I responded to your comment on my site..if you want to see. One of the reasons I go to events is to gain inspiration from the crowd and the the models for my own look. I actually plan to go to Goodwill and look for small fur pieces that I could fashion into a neck piece for winter. We will see how that goes!
