5 Fashionable Blues to Rock This Winter

Temps dipped to a chilly 4° over the weekend. It was so cold I  had to break out the "big coat".   You ever hear that term, "the big coat"?  My great grandma used to call our long coats "the big coat" and once winter's chill hit, it was time to break out the "big coats".

A lot has changed since I was a kid.  Back in the day, the big coats were either black or beige.  Fast forward to today, bold and brightly colored coats and jackets are everywhere which means I can rock a jacket perfectly paired with my colorful boots.

A few weeks ago Macys had their annual sale and I picked up these ZiGiny booties in navy blue and I only paid $20 and I even earned some Swagbucks with my purchase.  
Finding the perfect "big coat" to pair with this boots was easy.  I found this Tom's Ware Womens Trendy Double Breasted Wool Pea Coat on Amazon for under $35.  The color perfectly matches my boots.  

A coat AND boots for under $100?  UNDER $100!!! That …

A Day on the Lake and Tips for Fishing with the Kids

My husband is an avid fisherman.  Any conversation with him eventually circles around to  fishing.  He'll share stories of fishing with his dad, like waking up early, packing sandwiches for a long day at the lake and falling asleep on the return trip home.  
Nothing's changed.  That little boy grew into a man who loves going fishing Spring, Summer, Winter and Fall.  He's gone fishing in lakes, ponds, streams and oceans. His love of fishing is undeniable and his knowledge of all things fishing is uncanny.
Each year hubby's job hosts a fishing derby for youth.  It's the one work day he looks forward to. The local pond is stocked with catfish and the kids spend the entire day on the lake fishing.  The kids are provided with rods, reels and bait.  For many of the kids, it's their first time fishing and there's nothing like the excitement of catching that first fish. 
Hubby is really patient and the epitome of the Chinese proverb "Give a man a fish and you fee…

Celebrating the Legacy of Dr. King and Our Visit to the King Center

Atlanta is one of my favorite cities. It has a rich history and is a mecca for foodies, art lovers, musicians and more. During a recent visit to Atlanta with my sister, we decided to take the kids to visit the Martin Luther King Jr. Center. The King Center is a National Historic Site and home to several sites associated with Dr. King including his birth home, his childhood church and the crypts of both he and his wife, Coretta Scott King.
January 15, 2018 marks what would have been the 89th birthday of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. As a kid, I remember reciting lines of his infamous “I Have a Dream” speech and learning of his commitment to the Civil Rights Movement. 
We stayed at the Atlanta Marriott Marquis during our visit to Atlanta and OMG! what a wonderful place to get some rest before exploring the sites of the King Center. The staff of the Atlanta Marriott Marquis was very attentive and knowledgeable about the area and nearby places of interest. 
A couple of notes about the Atlanta…

I was so excited to see HEY ARNOLD! returning to the screen during the holidays.  It was one of my favorite shows growing up and one that always left me wondering if my buddy Arnold ever found his parents.  I also wondered what became of his friends, his grandparents and so many more of the characters I'd come to love.
