Loving Life after 50

Sequins and Bathrooms

H&M Sequin Pants and J Crew Sweater, converse sneakers
A weekend to myself and what does it do, it rains, it snows, it sends freezing rain my way… mother nature sure was not kind.. so it was stay inside or shop, so guess what, I did both.  I also did a lot of crafting and redecorating, so maybe it was a good thing the weather was not conducive to being outside. 
I made coasters, hung art and even created a Wall Art Gallery ( post next week). I did some Target shopping what a surprise right.. Sunday I even decided to start spring cleaning even though it could not have been less spring like outside. I worked on the bathrooms and could not believe how many creams, lotions, ointments etc I had held on to, seriously why do we do that.  Sunday I also feeling a bit adventuress so if I had to be stuck cleaning bathrooms I decided to do it in style, yep its true I really did wear sequins while cleaning the bathrooms ( and when I went shopping to Micheal’s LOL).
I decided to take a page out of  Meagan and Debbie and Amber’s books and said to heck with it, who needs a special occasion to wear pants like this (or anything else we want).
Have you ever worn something totally inappropriate and still felt great?? Who knew that sequins would make even scrubbing bathrooms fun, OK not fun actually but tolerable.

Spring snow is the best for making snowballs and snowmen but it absolutely sucks for shoveling, it is heavy, heavy snow.  I tried to shovel the deck as a surprise for Kent but I think I really just redistributed and created larger snowbanks at the edge, hopefully it melts soon.

    I had to laugh at the title of this post, Linda. The snow weekend worked out great for all the fun crafts you did – share them with us, soon. This outfit is just too cute. I love the sequined pants. I plan on posting sequined pants tomorrow on my blog, as well. The beanie and necklace you chose are perfect to pair them with. And as I have mentioned, you can always send some of that snow, my way.

  • How cute are those pants?!

    And I totally understand the lotion hoarding. I went through all of my makeup and lotions last year and threw out a ton of stuff. I don't miss it one bit, but I do regret spending so much money over the years!
