Loving Life after 50

A Trifecta post, Fashion LInkup, a Nordstrom Giveaway and I am off to the Races

Its a bloody miracle I tell you a miracle…. I have a post prepared three days in advance, all ready to go live on Monday morning. Why would I need to do that you ask ( especially after my hell weel last week) well this weekend I was off to Toronto to 1) surprise the boys early at their Guelph show on Saturday night ( making up for the one I missed in Ottawa) and 2) and most importantly cuz we are attending the Woodbine Mile #womile.  The boys are playing plus we love the horse races…. how fun right the only down side is as I sit here typing I still have no idea what I am wearing. Apparently its not like the Derby but it is still an event right???  In addition the forecast just changed from sunny and warm to overcast maybe rain and cool. so the outfit I was planning on is a “no go” Well stay tuned and follow the hashtag for glimpses
In the meantime I actually made it to the office on Friday, they thought I was crazy and should still be home but I made it all day ( proving to Kent that I was well enough to go to Toronto cuz he thought I was to sick)
I Fallized (nice word) my checked duster ( last seen here ) not because it was cold out but more to do with the chills I was still experiencing…. I think it turned out as an OK help me look not to sick look.
