I am moving my blog and trying to keep it up again. Join me as I start my quest toward 40!

I love shoes! As a (slowly reducing) fat girl, shoes are my go to purchase. Shoes do not care if your thighs a thin enough for skinny jeans or if you arms are tones enough for sleeveless tops. Shoes love you no matter what!
These are my favorite dress shoes. I don't wear them often, as I only go out occasionally. They are not a special brand, but they were made by a boutique near my office.
Go check out everyone else at Calliope's Photo Friday! (So I'm late!)

Once again, I'm participating in Calliope's Photo Friday. Go check out everyone else's submissions.
Obviously, I took this first picture a few months ago, but I love Christmas! This was also the first time I was able to really get the lights to pop. I also love the reflection of the lights on the wet street.
The second picture I took in Las vegas last fall. Again, a good camera really makes a difference. I would have never got this picture a couple of years ago.

This week the fab-o Calliope selected refrigerator/freezer as the Photo Friday Theme. My fridge is meh, typical black bottom freezer with lots of healthy stuff and a few unhealthy ones too. However, my freezer tells the most about me.
I have not one, but two stand alone freezers. I keep them stocked and organized. When I was a young single mom, I barely had enough money to eat from week to week let alone have anything extra. I fed myself and my oldest daughter on WIC coupons and about $5 a week. My parents were great and let me eat as many meals as I wanted with them, but I felt the need to be independent and take care of us. To me, a full freezer means security. It means I am taking care of my family. (Oh, I am also flying my freak flag a bit. Organized much?)

I decided to start participating in Calliope's Photo Friday. I have been reading Calliope's blog for years; she is bright, funny and funky. I don't know her, but I have been a cohort in her search for a labyrinth rug.
I love this mailbox. It is near my house and the owner's dress her up seasonally. I hope it makes you smile!
Mr. Henry and I went thrifting last weekend. It was her first experience really scouring thrift stores for unusual items and good deals. My best deal of the day was a light fixture I found at the Habitat for Humanity for $5. It was dusty and an ugly shade of antique brass, but with a good scrub and coat of spray paint it looks fantastic! I purchased all of the items in the slide show for $30. It was a great day!
