Golden Girl Garbs- I love Pink & Black!

Hello lovley bloggers!!!

Well, it is Friday and I had to squeeze at least one post in for the week. Things are getting back to normal, well as normal as their going to get, in my household. Mom is doing really well and making amazing strides everyday. She is recovering in the comfort of her own home now, and has outpatient therapy 3 times a week. Her positive attitude and determination to get her speech back will definitely help with her progress. She has to walk with a cane for a little while until her strength builds up again, but at the rate she is going, it won't be long.

Today I am going to get her out of the house for a few hours. We have been looking forward to our date all week. She is so excited and deserves all the pampering she can get after being hospital bound for a month. First we are headed to the beauty shop, to get her a fresh new haircut (something short, cute & easy for her to maintain), then to sit down for a yummy lunch at the Blue Willow, and last we are off to do a little bit of shopping.

Of course she cannot keep up with the amount of shopping & hunting around town, that we used to do in the past (not yet anyway), but she has been hinting around for a new sundress and a pair of sandals. So if she gets tired of walking, I am happy to take her in a wheelchair to a few shops.
By then, she will probably be pretty tired, so I will have to take her home for a rest. Then it's off to watch my champs (sons) baseball game under the lights tonight!!

I would like to take this opportunity to say THANK YOU, from deep in my heart. To all of you loyal followers of my blog, who sent nothing but encouraging thoughts, support and prayers my way, during this difficult time in my life. They definitely kept me going on days that I was feeling very emotional. YOU are all inspirational and special to me!

To end the week, I leave you with an outfit post! Of course I had to dress up for my outing with Mom today. My biggest fan will be waiting to see what I am wearing, when I pick her up! I am so thankful that she is still here with us. My choice of colors today are pink & black!!

Have a nice & restful weekend!
