My 365 Photo A Day Project – Day 119 – Deal or no deal?

I absolutely LOVE getting a good deal on things that I want or need and I absolutely LOVE shopping at JC Penney so today was an awesome shopping day!

I get lots of coupons from JC Penney in the mail and recently I received two coupons.  One was $15 off of a $15 purchase and $10 off of a $10 purchase.  Sweet!  So I headed to the mall, armed with my coupons and a rough plan in my mind of what I was looking for. 

I first stopped at the accessories department and found the perfect wide brown belt that was stretch and would complement several of my outfits perfectly!  The cool thing was it was on sale for $15.60, regularly $26 so I snatched that puppy right up! 

I then browsed the intimate apparel section and I found an awesome pair of pajama pants that were on the clearance rack for $12.99, regular price was $30 so I picked those up and headed to the register.

So here’s how the deal worked in two separate transactions.

Deal 1 – MX stretch brown belt, regularly $26 on sale for $15.60 – $15 off a $15 purchase = $.65

Deal 2 – Flirtitude slim fit heather gray pajama pants, regularly $30 on clearance for $12.99 – $10 off of a $10 purchase = $3.24

Total – $56 before discounts/coupons.  Total after – $3.89!  I saved $52.11.  Not too shabby.

What good deals have you found today?

Stay awesome y’all!! ~lisa


My 365 Photo A Day Project – Day 118 – Hair today….gone tomorrow….

Actually hair today, gone today but not all of it. 

Here’s the before:

longer hair

And yes I know I have dark hair and it’s hard to see my hair against the cape but if you try…you can see it.

And then my hair stylist cut off about 4 or so inches. 

long but shorter than it was

Not a drastic change but definitely one I noticed.  Maybe next time I’ll cut it so it’s right at my shoulders…or maybe not.

Y’all know that right now I’ve got a serious crush on Candace Cameron Bure and I love how she cut her hair.


Doesn’t it look awesome?  Of course she’s so stinking cute herself that she’d make just about any cut look good. 

What do you think I should do with my hair?

Stay awesome y’all!! ~lisa

My 365 Photo A Day Project – Day 116 – If nothing ever changed there’d be no butterflies…

Change happens and how we deal with it says a lot about us.

Do you embrace it or resist it? 

Do you accept or reject it?

Today I discovered that there are some changes coming our way….


…in the form of butterflies!!  I counted 5 cocoons around our doorway and I’m not sure how long it’ll take for the butterflies to emerge but I’m pretty excited. 

I don’t think I’ve ever seen a caterpillar turn into a butterfly.  Have you?

Stay awesome y’all!! ~lisa

My 365 Photo A Day Project – Day 115 – Oxblood red and my OOTD

Oxblood is a deep dull red color that I favor for several reasons.  One, it’s supposed to complement my skin tone and the other reason is I just don’t think I look good in a bright red.  I have a couple of red shirts for occasions where they are appropriate such as Valentine’s Day and Christmas but other than that, I rarely wear a bright red.

After learning that Oxblood red was more complementary to my skin tone I started searching for clothing in that color.  As it turns out….it’s not that popular of a color.

I do have a skirt and some flats that are that color and those are two pieces that I utilized in todays look.

A simple white tee and my favorite black cardigan were paired with the knit skirt and flats.  A comfortable and casual look perfect for Sunday. 

What did you wear today?

Stay awesome y’all!! ~lisa

My 365 Photo A Day Project – Day 114 – Pinky swear you won’t tell?

I’m giving my sister a baby shower in a few weeks and I’ve been prepping so that I’m not frantic at the last minute trying to get everything together. 


She’s having a girl, which is a good thing since I’ve got a lot of pink going on….haha!! 

I can’t tell you what exactly that I’m making as I want it to be a surprise in case my sister reads this….surely she reads my blog….right?

After the shower I’ll show some of the things that I made and tell you how I did it in case you have something similar you are planning. 

What kind of fun things are you planning?

Stay awesome y’all!! ~lisa

My 365 Photo A Day Project – Day 113 – Ride ‘em cowboy!

Last night we went to the Real.Texas.Festival. for a bit of fun before the rodeo.


Even though the weather was yucky we had an awesome time.

Def Leggend

Def Leggend, a Def Leppard tribute band, was there too and they rocked it out until they had to stop due to the weather. 

Then we walked to the Mesquite Pro Rodeo.  The festival was on the rodeo grounds so it wasn’t too far.  😉

Mesquite Rodeo 2

I really like the rodeo and the drinks weren’t bad either…haha!!


Now that my realty company has a suite, I suspect I’ll be going more this year!


How was your Friday night?

Stay awesome y’all!! ~lisa
