I Went Gray For Fashion

I went gray for fashion. Really, I did. Years ago, I bought a few pairs of skinny jeans from a 90s brand at a store that is known for being open 24/7. One of them was a gray pair of jeans. I love them. I love how stylish they are, they go with almost anything! I am also a fan of The Walking Dead and I remember seeing a character wearing gray jeans! It reminded me of my own pair of gray jeans! They were skinny jeans too! Now, it seems most of the female characters on The Walking Dead wear gray jeans! So, I am all for going gray for fashion! Let’s look at gray skinny jeans!

Travel Simply And In Comfort

When it comes to travel, we used to travel by car with our son. It was easier for us because we could stop as often as we wanted. It allowed us to get out and stretch, get refreshments, and anything else we needed to do. Since I’ve been a single mom, we haven’t been able to travel. However, I do like to be prepared. Whether we travel or just need sturdy bags to carry our things, I wanted reliable gear! Get ready for ideas on how to travel simply and in comfort!

We Opened Our Home To A Foster Dog And It Changed Everything

It’s been well over a decade since we’ve had a dog. I grew up with dogs in the house and even had a dog early on in my adult life. Since it’s been years since we’ve had a dog, I was looking to help fill an empty part of heart with a dog. Since I am a single mom living on a fixed income, I knew I couldn’t afford to have a dog. Fostering a dog allows me to care for a dog temporarily and the shelter provides everything needed to care for the animal. We opened our home to a foster dog and it changed everything for us!

I had been thinking about being a foster dog mom for months! I found a few local shelters and filled out their forms to be a foster parent. It took a few weeks, but finally heard back from a few. Some require that you attend an orientation, one place offered an online orientation presentation, which was convenient for me. Ultimately, I found a local shelter, filled out their form and joined their Facebook group. One afternoon, they listed a dog that needed a foster home. I left a comment saying I was interested but was sure they had plenty of responses. They responded that they didn’t have any! So, I quickly sent an email expressing my interest. I told them a bit about myself, my schedule, and our household. It took a few weeks and we were finally able to take her home.

Update your shades

Let’s start with cool new shades! My son and I like to wear our cool shades before we leave the house. When I know we’ll be gone for a few hours, I remind him to grab his sunglasses. He knows it is part of our routine. He has one pair of sunglasses now and I wanted him to have a few other pairs to choose from!  It’s always nice to update and try new frames! Always look for sunglasses that offer 100% UVA/UVB protection.
