Loving Life after 50

5 for Friday

Well the last 5 for Friday before the holidays. It has been a great week, actually a wonderful week, we were off Monday and Friday so it was a three day work week and Thursday was my sections Christmas lunch so nice end to the work week.  Boy hope the rest of you had to work as hard as I did.

1) First Christmas Party of the season so I wore my Santa Skateboarding Skirt, as always it was a big hit.

Check Sundays post for full pictures and details if you are interested, great time and a lovely way to start the week.

2) Monday was a day off and I went to Target to find a Christmas present for a friend, well as I posted earlier this week, ladies clothes on sale for $5.00. so 2 blazers, 2 dresses, a skirt, leggings, jean jacket and flannel shirt….. you get the picture, Happy smiles all around,  plus my Mom had just sent me money for a Christmas present,  so Thanks Mom.

3) Hair appointment on Wednesday,  lord I love having my hair done,  just the shampoo and massaging of the scalp is a little slice of heaven.                                  

                                              new hair do

4) Annual Open House is tomorrow and I am so excited,  we love hosting this event every Christmas.
Last year with a snowstorm raging we still had 60 people show up,  lots of food and drinks and socializing.
It is an eclectic guest list but it works.
