Lizz Wright's voice is so mellow. The man was playing an instrumental version of this song when we went out for my birthday this weekend. I was reminded how much I love this album...how it makes me feel. I think I should dig it out for a spin.
My boyfriend was actually playing "Afro Blue" in the car not "Blue Rose" but Lizz Wright also does a beautiful version of that on the same album.

When I look at Julie's etsy shop Vintage Inspiration, I get that same feeling of nostalgia. Her buttons are like jewels in a jewelry box. Some of her buttons even make it on to jewelry, like the ring below.
And these earrings...mom had earrings like this I used to play in as a little girl. I remember feeling so grown up with my dangles on. They've even compared them to jewelry worn by Goldie Hawn. Oooh me love Goldie Hawn!!! I still watch Foul Play when it comes on. Dudley Moore dancing around in his swingers' room is worth the price of admission. Granted I didn't know what that scene meant when I saw the movie as a kid but I did think he looked silly. LOL!
For more, pop by and visit Vintage Inspiration.

The man just called to check on me and I told him all my troubles. How the old biddies (my nickname for my aunt and mom) kept me out all day going to B.J.'s, Shop-Rite, the mall, and various other places while I kept saying I have papers to write, I HAVE PAPERS TO WRITE!!!!
Of course being the sweet caring understanding beau that he is...
He proceeded to LECTURE ME about waiting till the last minute to do all my assignments. Then he politely told me to get off the phone and get to work. He would call me later.
Where was the sympathy for my plight?!!!!
Damn, I hate when he's right. Let me get off my blog before he checks and finds out I'm goofing off again. I guess I will tell y'all about the two new bags and new earrings I bought at the mall yesterday, later.

It's so 80s. I LOVE IT!!! I used to LOVE Olivia Newton John. What?!! Xanadu is still one of my faves! LOL
Now its time for the 3rd Annual Ultimate Blog Party!!!
Organized by the owners of 5 Minutes for Mom, its a virtual party of bloggers. Blogging life is about relationships — meaningful friendships that grow out of sharing who we are and getting to know one another. And like real life friendships, online friends need a place to meet and mingle.
It has become a tradition in the “momosphere.” It is the perfect event to build your network and have some serious blogging fun, all without stepping away from your machine…
So join me in stopping by and chatting with new friends, March 20 to March 27, 2009. And if its your first time here,
Always great to make new friends.
P.S. I'm also offering a little prize with the blog party. A $25 gift certificate to my store so be sure to check 5 Minutes for Mom for details on how to win!!

Monday, I jumped on the elliptical first...stepping hard for a good few minutes before my knee said, "Danielle, what da hell are you doing?" and I had to get off. LOL I admit I stayed on there as long as I did because there were two ladies behind me on the treadmill and I didn't want to look like a punk. But I reminded myself that I'm there for me and not for other people. It doesn't make sense to hurt myself because I have too much pride (ego). So I got off that elliptical, got some water and continued my workout on the treadmill. Hey, I paid $105 to join this gym. I'm not going to quit cause I got alittle ahead of myself on the elliptical. LOL. And I stayed on the treadmill for the next few days, walking alittle longer, further, and faster each day. So I'm proud of this first step to living my life a little more golden.
