Grab your coffee and sit awhile ! My name is Tammy, this is where I'll post about fashion, family and photography. As my children have gotten older I needed to find an outlet for my creative side so the reason for this blog. I love having the opportunity to share our stories and photos on here for friends and family to follow along. We also have little grandchildren, who by the way still like getting their pictures taken. This makes me happy so of course you'll see bits and pieces of them on here too. I may not be the best writer or have the greatest grammar but it's safe to say that I'm sure that I'm like a lot of you and love sharing what makes me happy !

Scottsdale Arizona !

Good morning friends !
We are enjoying a few days off this weekend from Flight Training here in Arizona.
It's been nice to sleep in a little and actually spend some time sight seeing while here.
We took an Uber to Scottsdale on Friday night.  The ride from Tempe to Scottsdale took maybe 20 minutes total.
It was still a scorching hot evening but with the sun down it seemed better than if we'd been out at 2 in the afternoon.

We were dropped of by Nordstroms and decided to go walk around the fabulous Fashion Mall.
Oh my goodness.....
We don't have store like Lululemon, Ted Baker, Zarah and so many others.  It was so beautiful and a lady and I made our way back to the mall on Saturday and grabbed a small lunch and a quick run into Sephora.

We begin our full week of training on Monday.  I passed my firs test.  Yay and yay ! It was actually pretty easy.  This next one that we have on Wednesday will be the big one.  It's a huge test from what we all understand. 
As I've said in earlier posts, this training is intense and it will test our patience.
I'm trying to continue to study my material all day long and become familiar with everything.

As always, follow me on Instagram
Have a fabulous day !

I'm in Phoenix !

Hey ladies happy Thursday !
I'm currently in Phoenix Arizona for Flight Attendant Training.
Surprise for some of you and not a surprise for a few who follow along on instagram stories.
 I'm here for almost 4 weeks.
The training is intense but this lady is very determined to get her wings and fly the friendly skies.

I left Omaha for Dallas/Fort Worth yesterday (Wednesday Aug 20th) and then headed to Phoenix via American Airlines. 
It's really hot here, duh I know I'm int he desert but OMG.
It was 117 here a few days ago and today is was 114.

I will keep you all updated on my progress.
I could use a few prayers.

Have a wonderful day.

I turned 50 !

I turned the BIG 50 on Friday August 9th ! It ended up being the best couple of days for me as I was surprised with a party with family and friends on Saturday. 
My grandma who is 97 years old made the trip with my sister and uncle to Omaha for my surprise party and I am so glad that she braved the three hour car ride.

Our good friends Biz and Kristina were here too along with their boys.

My gorgeous sister has a birthday August 12th.  She's the younger of us three and just the stylish as ever. She's my go to for what's in fashion.

My sweet mother and I enjoyed so much time talking and laughing.

The hubby brought me roses on my actually birthday.  It's been years since he's gotten me beautiful red roses.  I am so thankful :)

Age is just a number, right ??? I secretly was feeling blahhhhhh.  The week before my birthday I simply felt a bit sad about turning 50.  I reminded myself many times that it's just a number, 

I constantly remind myself that I am in great health, as a cancer survivor it's great when doctor visits are less and less frequent.   I have a loving family and friends and I have God in my heart. 

I don't know what this year holds. Are you following me on instagram ?? I've been up to something BIG ! I travel this Thursday to Denver, follow my stories on Instagram to keep in the loop.

All that I do know is that I'm so thankful for all the friends and family that I get to see and spend time with.  Chase your dreams even at the ripe ole age of 50.  Here's to a fabulous year ahead and hopefully some adventures too.

I'm thankful !

A Few Amazon Finds !

Who doesn't just love sitting on the couch or in bed in the evening looking on Amazon ?
It's so convenient and that's what I'm all about, the convenience of the shopping experience.

I follow a few fabulous bloggers who post Amazon Hauls that I love more than drinking the perfect cup of coffee.
I saw these gorgeous earrings and this jumpsuit on one of her hauls and knew that they were both must have.
The earrings are so pretty and the bead detail is stunning.
It arrived the other day and it's the perfect light weight material and isn't the color the most gorgeous wine color ?

I get a few messages every now and then asking about my handbag.
It's also a purchase that I made from Amazon.
It's been my go to handbag all summer long.

Some amazing things are going on in my life.
DO you follow me on Instagram ?
I post instatories a lot so make sure that you add me !
I've been up to some things and I debated as whether to share my experience and decided what the heck, JUST DO IT !!! So follow along !

Have a fabulous Day !

Life Lately !

You all know how much I love my favorite thrift store for all things but my second favorite place to make purchases from is Shein.  I've had pretty good luck with most of the things that I've ordered.
This top is one of my favorites and was a purchase from last year.
It's a great light weight material and perfect for summer.
I am almost certain that I paid under 10.00 for this adorable top.  The prices on the website are incredible and very affordable, which is a huge reason to why I shop Shein. 

This week we had a dear friend of ours come into town.  She lives in Myrtle Beach (formerly from Omaha) and we miss her so much.
As always we might now talk via phone for months at a time but when we get together it's like the good ole days, that I miss ! 
We spent a few hours chatting about life happenings, our children and grandchildren to name a few very important things. 
When dear friends move away it can be so challenging.
We've been through so much together, like having babies, working at the same job, husbands who are best friends and so on and so on.

This sweet boy is turning 3 next month, we share the same month for our birthdays.  Mine is Aug 9th his in Aug. 18th :) 
He's talking non-stop and in complete sentences. He loves animals and especially trips to the zoo.
I've been so lucky to be able to see this little guy grow each year, the perks of taking care of the grandkids a few nights a week.

If you follow me on Instagram you'll know that I've struggled most of the summer with sinus issues.
My sinuses have never been so bad as they are now.
I've been on several anti-biotics and now I'm taking a steroid.
Feeling a bit better today.
Praying that I can stay healthy the rest of the summer.
Happy Wednesday !

Belted Shirt Dress !

I ordered this Belted Shirt Dress from Shein a year ago and I love the color of it but I'm not sure of the length.  It's a high low curved hem and the slit hits me pretty high in the thigh.  
It's really comfortable and the fabric isn't thick so wearing this in the summer months is fine.  
It's under 20.00 and would be super cute with a pair of black leggings and boots for the fall.

My Kate Landry hand bag I scored at my favorite thrift store.
It's a great size and a great quality purchase,

Do you shop Shein ? The prices on this website are amazing.  I've gotten some amazing pieces, dresses and tops and most of them I've liked.  
Of course it's hit and miss with somethings. 


Niece Tia Comes To Visit !

I can hardly believe we are nearing the end of July.  This summer is flying by compared to past summers and I'm not sure why it's happening.  We took our vacation in May, June was filled with Bryton and Basketball, July has been a month of Ray dealing with medical issues, I'll go into that in more detail later.
But a most recent surprise was a visit from our niece Tia.
She flew in for her 20th class reunion and of course we had to have a family get together.
It's been years since we've seen her.  Thank goodness for Facebook these days !
Here's Tia with her father and aunt and uncle.

Here's the whole group.  I'm of course taking the photo in this one.
This photo is my favorite and makes me smile each time I look at it. 

Both of our Tia's.
1st cousins and both so caring and beautiful.
I love you girls !

While we were waiting for our niece Tia to show up I had Bryton snap a photo of my oldest grandson and I.
He's getting so big ! 

The weather here in Omaha has been incredibly HOT.
I think this upcoming week we will be cooling down a bit and I can't wait.
Feeling the temperature change from 100 degrees to 80 with be a welcomed treat.
Our oldest boys both work outdoors and as a mom I'm always worried about the heat and how challenging it can be for outdoor workers.

Have a fabulous Sunday !
