God's Blessings, Clothing jackpot, kissin' chickens, tiny feet pedicures,& ice cream!

Wednesday, September 08, 2010

Well by now you know me pretty well... I like posting pictures...! LOL I love other people's blogs with pictures too!

GOD has really blessed me with health. I have a beautiful family (yes we have normal family problems LOL but we work through them!)

One of my 3 sisters recently lost almost 40 lbs and looks amazing. She went from 14's to 10's and 8's.
She was going to donate all her bigger clothes and asked me if I wanted them. PRAISE GOD!
I needed them.
She wears up-to-date styles and buys nice quality..too just nice...not extreme super costly items but much nicer than I buy..
She gave me almost 100 items.

Lots of cute workout clothes.. I just need to start working out.....

also a cute swimsuit in it... that fit pretty good... (it is a little tight) it is a size 12

Overall there were:
10 dressy shirts/blouses
27 casual shirts
1 nice black dress pants to go with most those dressy shirts
14 capris
10 shorts
6 workout pants
6 workout tops to match in all pastel type colors (cute)
10 jacket/type shirts cute to wear with jeans
5 sweatshirt type pullovers
1 dress
1 pair of shoes
All clothes are brand name and like new...

I can wear abou 70% right now and the rest will be soon.
Thank you God for these clothes!
Here I am wearing one of the outfits yesterday:
I used it in a comparison photo just for kicks. Dec 09 on the left 9-7-10 on the right:

Here is my Granddaughter Jada checking out a chicken:

Now here she is kissing the chicken as my 18 yr old son holds it!

She adores my son Kendall and he adores her.

Here is Jada's cute little feet with painted nails her Great Grandma painted for her!
Grandma is pretty shakey and Jada is pretty wiggly so they turned out nice considering LOL

Jada kept giving her mother worried looks and frowns because she didn't like her new shoes... they wouldn't stay on right... she wears flip flops all the time..but these ANNOYED her and she finally kicked them off and went barefooted like a country girl can do! LOL

Pretty little girls can sure turn into "messy little girls" in 2 seconds.. LOL

She loves her ice cream! Her and my 9 yr old are enjoying it enough for everybody!

Hope you enjoyed my blog...

KEEP writing yours... I love reading them!

THANK u for your continued SUPPORT. I love you guys!

    I have one of those shirts!! I have the one that's blue/green with black circles all over it with a v-neck and ties in the back. I love my shirt. I have a purple one that's kind of like it, too.
