The Leopard print flats or the red Converse?!!

How is it that my wonderful husband can live a complete and happy life with just 4 pairs of shoes!!

To me this is just unthinkable. Not that I have closets full of shoes mind you, but I do certainly have more than just 4 or 5 pairs.  During all those busy mom years I could find a cute pair of colorful tennies or fun bright sandals at my favorite TARGET while I stocked up on TP and toothpaste.  And I may have added to the shoe collection post pregnancy when only my shoe size had remained the same. 😉 When momma needed a shopping fix I could let myself buy new cute shoes over jeans in a new bigger size! (Can I get an AMEN?!)  Needless to say, now as a 50 something mom and grandma, I have a very cute collection of fun and stylish shoes.  This has actually been a PLUS as I started to refocus and revamp my fashion and style journey.

One of the best and useful tips I learned is -


A simple way to up your fashion game each day is to add one "Remarkable" piece.  You could be wearing basic jeans and a white T shirt but add those Red Converse high tops or those eye catching Gold gladiator sandals and you have just put together a "remarkable" fashion outfit! 😁  And someone WILL probably notice and say "You look great, and I love those shoes!" 

So no matter your size, or age or budget ... you can start today.  Just push yourself to add just that little extra "remarkable" item to your outfit.  (It may be shoes or a unique bag, or a cool scarf or even eye catching bold red lip stick!  You will be surprised how simple it is and how often you will receive a compliment on how great you look.)

Let's go be confident and uniquely us dear friends!

Beef and Cheese Foldover

Here is a quick and simple dinner idea... my mom made this when I was a kid and it has been a staple in our family of BBQ lovers.

Beef & Cheese Foldover

1 pound ground beef

1/2 c. diced onions

2 tubes crescent rolls

6 slices american cheese

3/4 c. BBQ sauce

Brown ground beef and onions in a skillet. Drain.

Unroll one tube of crescent rolls on a baking sheet. Flatten into a bottom one piece crust.

Mix BBQ sauce into ground beef and spread this mixture over crescent roll crust.  Layer on the slices of cheese.  Unroll 2nd tube of crescent rolls to form a top crust. Pinch together edges.  Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes.  Slice into pieces and serve with additional BBQ sauce if desired.

** A ham and cheese variation ~ Spread a honey mustard sauce over bottom crust.  Layer on sliced deli ham and american cheese. Add top crust and bake as above.
