Every once in a while they have a really smart piece of Jewelry. I Necklace and it is one of my favorites and YES I get complimented on it( can you see why I like this company sooo much..LOL) . This would set one back $18.00.
The thing I like most about this company is that although the products are inexpensive , they don't 'look' it. They have a real 'designer" look to them. I live in a relatively affluent neighborhood with women who wouldn't think twice to spend thousands on a piece of jewelry and these same women are constantly complimenting me and asking where I buy my Jewelry.
Anyway if you're interested in seeing more head on over to my store: Maggii's mark. Store
edit: I forgot to mention ... with the necklace up there....the beaded sections actually detach and can be worn as two bracelets and you can still wear the necklace as a shorter version! How cool is that!

Red Ribbed Turtle- Walmart this winter
Grey Knit Pleated Skirt- SteinMart
Grey Cabled Sweater-Old Navy( I LOVE this sweater)
Black Wool tights_can't remember
Black Suede Boots-LEI three years ago
Later in the afternoon the Commander and I went to help set up for the Drama Queen's(ie.teenager's) High School Chorus's Pancake Breakfast. The Commander was put to work with another gentleman slicing frozen sausage. After about an hour of slicing, their hands were practically frost bitten. I spent most of my time there forming small sausages from the thawed sausage they also had. The kids( ie.teens) who came to help were put to work wrapping plastic silverware, and setting up tables with placemats and such.
The actual Breakfast was this morning. We always do this Breakfast on Martin Luther King , Jr. Day . It's a fundraiser for the Chorus Students going on Spring Trip(which the drama queen has decided to not to do this year...it will interfere with Sound of Music rehearsals). So we were all up Bright and Early( no sleeping in for us this morning). I spent the morning Serving guests with a cheerful smile and the Commander was on Pancake Patrol.
Hmmnn, the Commander weilding a spatula. Not something you see often.....at least not without a BBQ Grill in the vicinity..LOL
Here is the Drama Queen doing what one of the things she does best...
the Choral students Provide entertainment with your Pancake and Sausage Breakfast...it's well worth the $5.00 charge!
Here is what I wore to the Dinner:
Red Wool Jumper-Target-bought this last fall
Black Ribbed Turtle- Walmart last year
black wool tights-not sure...
Black Sandals-Walmart last summer

And Just for you nosy buggers who always have to see the INSIDE of people's fridges here you go...enjoy it now....it will never look this organized( not that I'm saying it's organized NOW or anything)again......
our next step in the kitchen will be replacing the countertops( probably a darker granite 'looking" countertop...I'd love actual granite, but I'm not willing to spend that much on something I'll only have for a few months possibly) and ripping the wallpaper down and painting the walls.
Oh and BTW we are keeping the old one..it will go in the garage for extra storage...or to use for parties and such.( store sodas and beer etc etc...)
Britt's is called Sargeant Peter Bests Lonely Hearts Club Band Syndrome. Peter Best was the origional drummer for the Beatles BEFORE they became the Beatles. He didn't think the band was 'going anywhere" so he quit right before they hit it BIG. The jist of the play is about taking opportunities when they present themselves so you don't regret it and kick yourself for missing out on success in the future.

Tried to snap a Pic of the Two of us at the Dinner:

Ike and Tina?
Overall it was a pretty fun night. I even got the Commander to dance once or twice. Actually he 'owed' me, as he ended up volunteering me to drive our Priest to church back at Home, early the next morning, when I had planned on sleeping in and having a leisurely morning at the Hotel while he attended his meetings.
Our Priest is 88 years old and broke his leg almost two years ago...he is not supposed to drive, as he doesn't have complete use of his leg anymore( not to mention he just isn't as alert these days and falls asleep easily). I guess he drove himself to this event, and was planning on driving himself back home that night after the Dinner. There's just no way we could allow him to do that. It's at least a 1 hour drive and like I said he's really not supposed to be driving. We have a system set up, thru our church, to have different people drive him around to the places he needs to be. So the Commander convinced him to stay overnight at the Hotel with us, and I drove him straight to church the next morning.
We had a nice Breakfast before leaving and it was a pleasant Drive back. He decided to say the Rosary while we drove.( I didn't think I was THAT bad of a driver..LOL) Like I mentioned earlier though, he has this habit of falling alseep easily and at any moment. So, he's saying the Rosary, and every so often he would nod off for a few minutes, then he'd wake up and just pick right up where he left off. It was kindof Cute. At one point he woke up said about two lines of the Hail Mary and nodded off again..LOL. Needless to say he managed to get thru the whole Rosary just as we drove up to the Chapel.
