Hi, I'm Tammy !
This little blog of mine is a place where you'll find everything from me sharing my favorite beauty products to sharing photos of my precious grandchildren. Every once in awhile I'll even pretend that I'm a fashion blogger and post about a recent purchase.
I love the interaction with other women with the same inspiration as I that I've made friendships with since blogging.
Thank you for stopping by !

What's Up Wednesday & T3 Hair Dryer A Review !

Hey ladies Happy Wednesday ! This post is compiled of photos of me in my newest dress.
I love a comfortable dress, I think as I've gotten older and my tummy has expanded slightly I'm more comfortable in a casual shift dress or shirt dress.
It gives me room to breathe and who doesn't like that ?
I also feel feminine and I'm very much a girlie girl. Not a bit of tomboy in me.
If you look near the end of this post you'll see my video on my opinion of the T3 hair dryer.

Marshall's is and always will be my go to for everything and so I'm sure it's no news to any of you who stop by my blog that I found this dress at Marshall's.  Ladies it was a steal of a deal $16.99.  I can wear it with slip on shoes, wedges and even heels.  This dress will be a perfect transition into summer.

Here's a better photograph of the entire dress.
What do you all think ?
It's lined and thank goodness because that makes a huge difference when I'm deciding whether or not to purchase a certain dress.

This video sharing my opinion on the T3 Cura Luxe hair dryer.  I'm no expert at giving reviews so be kind please !  Hoping that you all enjoy this quick video.  I've watched it a few times this morning and truthful I should delete this video because I left so much information out.  Maybe I was a little nervous at filming this- who knows.  But I've decided to keep it up for laughs :) XOXO

It's been a fantastic week.  I'm constantly trying to promote my photography.  I'd love to keep my business growing and like anything there's a process. But reading about other business owners and their start up process is giving me lots of hope for the future.  I'm using social media the most offering deals/discounts.

Here's to being half way through the week :)
Enjoy your day !

The Old Market & SOH !

Monday early afternoon Tia and I went downtown Omaha and had lunch together.  We are trying to make this a monthly little treat for both of us.  We've wanted to try new (new to us) restaurants but we ended up having lunch Monday at Spaghetti Works.  It's somewhere we've both eaten before but for some reason spaghetti just sounded good to me.
We walked around a little and Tia snapped this photo of me in one of my favorite spots.
If you ever make a trip to Omaha head straight to The Old Market area and you'll find amazing restaurants, bars, hotels and entertainment.  It's one of our favorite places to frequent.

If you follow my Insta stories I'm sure this is old news to you all.
Some of my followers don't have Instagram so I'm trying to be better at sharing a few snippets from my Instagram.
Above is a little video of one of my favorite indoor spots downtown.  The brick and greenery is stunning.

We attended the SOH (School of Hoops) basketball banquet.  It was a wonderful treat for all of us.  The season goes by quickly it's so nice to sit down and chat with other parents while eating pizza and ice cream.
Very proud of this kid of ours he was awarded MVP of the 7th grade team.  He has such hustle and determination.

Here's to a fabulous week.  I feel bits of spring.  Yesterday afternoon we were in the 50's here in Omaha, PRAISE GOD !!!

And.... on a side note, I take pride in my photography and note to my readers these videos and photos were taken with my phone so the quality isn't as I'd like it to be.

Hoping you ladies enjoy your day :)

Weekend Tidbits !

Hoping you all are having a fabulous weekend.  Just wanting to throw this out there but crazy post title....  I know.  I simply didn't know what else to title this post.  Now onto business.
Basketball is over however...... tryouts for Spring/Summer basketball are coming up.  So this means our teenager is currently working out so that he's ready.  He goes up to our gym and practices shooting baskets.  We're also on Spring Break ! We really have no major plans as my husband is working a lot during this busy season making it difficult to get out of town.

I picked up another adorable cookie while at Von Maur this past week.  Now that I have three (each one a little different) I'll put one in each of the grandkids Easter Baskets.

I picked up this pretty light blue off the shoulder top last week.  Sometimes I choose to wear it this way and other times I'll wear it off the shoulder.  I've needed a few new tops so I picked up a few more while at Marshall's.

This top was such a great find.  I love wearing a top that's not fitted at the waist.   It has a pretty ruffle sleeve and will be perfect this summer with white shorts or skirt.

This black top has been on repeat this past month.  The detail on the sleeve issue pretty and it's very comfortable.  I'm all about comfort.

It's been a pretty quiet weekend for our family.  No complaints from me.
It has given me lots of time to read.  I downloaded the book The Rock, the Road and the Rabbi by Kathie Lee Gifford. I've always loved Kathie Lee, from the first time seeing her on Regis and Kathie Lee to now watching her on the Today show.  She is REAL !! She doesn't miss a beat when talking about her love for the LORD.  She tells it like it is and I simply LOVE her.
If you are looking for an ispirational read  this one here is fabulous.
So..... here's to more reading and relaxing for this mama.
Happy Saturday !

Thursday Randoms !

If you read my blog than you know very well this lady is more than ready for SPRING.
I can't wait  for March 20th ! The first official day of SPRING.  
So this post is filled with a few things that have me ready for SPRING.... Like clothes and flowers :)
I shop a lot at Target and right near the front of the store you'll find a whole bunch of fresh flowers.
Tulips happen to be my favorite right now and so I picked up a bouquet.
Growing up my mother always had a fresh bouquet of flowers around the house. She's always been an avid gardener.  Her yard is one of my favorites because it's filled with so much color.  Flowers everywhere.

If you follow me on Instagram I tend to post a lot throughout the day.  I did a try on session while at Marshall's and had a few people message me asking me if I got this blue top because everyone loved it.
I am happy to report I went back and got it after first leaving the store telling myself I DID NOT NEED another blue top.

I purchased this cute top and the jeans.  I'll share something with you,  I wasn't sure that I wanted another pair of jeans and ripped jeans at that.  Sometimes I think I'm not wearing things that are age appropriate.  But after trying these jeans on I knew I needed them and they fit perfectly.  I heard someone say one time "wear what makes you feel comfortable" ! 

I've needed a pair of cute slip on shoes and how cute are these black Calvin Klein slides ?
They'll be perfect to slip on when making quick runs to the store or taking Bryton to school.
Anyway friends,  it was great adding a few new pieces to my wardrobe. 
Marshall's is always my go to place for everything.  The prices are just right. 

Aren't these cookies the cutest ever.  I grabbed these at Marshall's and plan of giving them to the grandkids.  I guess I'll need one more for the youngest.

Some of the things that I'm looking forward to this Spring........
Getting flowers planted in our flower pots on the patio.
Trip to the Omaha Henry Doorly Zoo with the grandkids.
Wearing a few of my favorite spring dresses.
Purchasing things for Easter Baskets.
Ordering a few Personalized Easter shirts for the grandkids.

Here's to a fabulous week friends.
We are are feeling so much better and going on with life as usual.
I've been back to our gym walking three miles each day.

I'm going to try and post a video next week on my opinion on my recent purchase of the T3 Cura Luxe hairdryer.
If you follow along on Instagram you may have heard me mention that I'd do a post.  I never got to it this week but I will try my hardest next week.

What's Up Wednesday !

Hello friends ! Hoping that you are having a fantastic week.
This past weekend I made my way to Marshall's and found a top that screams SpRiNG !
The brand is Violet + Claire, the sleeves are the perfect length.  Besides being such a pretty color of orange/coral it's also very light weight.  I see myself wearing this top with my white jeans and also a white skirt and wedges this summer.
I'm sure hoping the temperatures warm back up for us here in Nebraska because I'm more than ready to pull out my spring wardrobe from my totes.

I've mentioned this before but it's worth mentioning again.  I picked up these Aromatique Wax Melts in the Smell of Spring  and I simply love this pretty scent.  I add two squares to my warmer and the scent lingers for about a day and a half.

Have a wonderful Wednesday friends.
I'm off to get a new pair of eye glasses.
I have a tendency to leave my only pair at home and when I'm out running errands I'm lost without them.
I plan on keeping this new pair in my purse at all times.

Tuesday Tidbits !

Happy Tuesday ladies !  Do you know what Tuesday March 20th is ??
Well.... It's the first day of Spring.   I know, just like you I'm ready for it.  I'm ready for the warmer temps and the cute spring dresses.

I've always loved Butter London Nail Polish.  I bought my first polish on Amazon after reading a review that a blogger posted.  It's a great quality and stays on like no other I've found.
Since I do my own nails (nope no time to sit in a salon) I like a polish that stays on for 5-7 days without chipping.
On Amazon it's typically listed at $18.00 however......
Drumroll....... I've found it at Marshall's for $3.99 ! No joke.

These colors are perfect for Spring and Summer and I know that my local Marshall's still had lots of color options on the shelf.
So, if you're in Omaha go grab one for to see for yourself how amazing it is.

  • Features and Benefits:

Here's to a fabulous day even though we have snow and lots of wind.  Can I just tell you that I'm more than over winter.
