Busy Bee

Happy Monday all!

Usually my weekends are slow but this past weekend I was quite the busy bee!

On Friday Shonna (my BFF) asked me to judge a talent show for her students and I accepted.  There’s nothing like being around a bunch of 18-20 year olds to remind you how old and out of step you are! I couldn’t understand half the songs the DJ was playing and the dancing….WOOOOO! Lets just say it gives the term “bump and grind” a whole new meaning! LOL

On Saturday evening, Shonna and I decided to get gussied up and head downtown for dinner.  We went to foodie favorite  Oyster House and proceeded to happily stuff our faces with wonderful seafood.  The lobster bisque I had was the best I’ve tasted in a long time.  Shonna is a  seafood aficionado  so when she gave it a big thumbs up I knew I did a good job picking the restaurant.

Here is what I wore Saturday night:

kohls, faux leather jacket, leopard print, old navy, oxblodd, simply bee, h&m, curvy, curvy women, curvy girls, plus size fashion,

curvy, curvy women, curvy girls, plus size fashion, leopard print, leopard print shirt, old navy shirts, old navy, plus size leather jackets, leather jackets, fake leather jackets, kohls

One of my new year resolutions was to get out more and meet new people.  So I signed up for Mahogany Philly on Meetup and went to my first event at the National Constitution Center on Sunday.  The National Constitution Center is a fairly new museum that is dedicated to the history of the US and the Constitution.  Im huge museum nerd and I like to take my time wandering the exhibits so I knew I had to be comfortable.  I kept things colorful and  wore my favorite straight leg jeans, colorful striped tee and a neon cardigan.  I had a great time with the ladies of Mahogany Philly.  I’m looking forward to attending more of their events and meeting  more people!

    I did a bunch of shopping mostly. I love the animal print with the green what an unexpected combo that works well! It’s nice to see animal print paired with something other than bright red or mustard. I also like the cardigan and the striped T-shirt, it’s a great casual outfit…

      Ever since a co-worker told me that leopard print was a neutral Ive been treating it as such. It pretty much goes with everything!

    I attended a blog meet up and had a ball yesterday. I said the same exact thing, it’s very important to have real life relationships and it brings you back to reality. I like art galleries and museums too.

      Yes! Those relationships keep me grounded as a person.

    Weekend? What weekend? Lol. I worked both days but am now enjoying four days off in a row. For which I will pay upon my return to work as I have an eight day stint looming. Meetup rocks! When I got to the bit where you said you ought meet new people, I immediately thought ‘once I’ve read this, I’ll suggest Meetup in the comments’.. but then discovered you are one step ahead of me! Meetups rock. I’m in a Meetup group called Sisterhood – it’s full of the most amazing and wonderful people, and we have a blast whenever we get together. I’m even organising a couple of events for it, including a photo day out, and a girls night in. 😀

    I also made a decision over the weekend. I am going to participate in the World’s Greatest Shave and shave my head to raise money for cancer research. Here is my blog post link to that – have a read and if you are able and willing, I’d LOVE you to repost it to help me spread the word. If not, no problem whatsoever!!!! Have a great day – and I was just thinking yesterday that you had not done a post for a little while. I miss my Grown and Curvy Woman blog posts when they don’t arrive regularly in my inbox!

    Have a great day, Georgette.

      Thank you! I thought if I wore a Springlike outfit Spring would come early! lol

    Both these outfits are great! I love the deep jewel tones in the first one, and that second one is a great reminder that spring is getting close!!

    • February 26, 2013 / 2:23 pm

      Yes Spring is! I cant wait til the 20th of March. I plan to wear a SUPER colorful outfit to celebrate the season!

    Two fabulous outfits. Loving the bright cardi and striped tee a bunch:) Good for you for going to a meetup! I’m terrible at meeting new people!

      Thank you! Im bad at it too. I get nervous and incredibly shy so this was a huge leap out of my comfort zone.
