Silver Sister- 14 Months

Growing out my silvers is no longer as exciting and dramatic looking as it was in the beginning months. It’s now just a game of patience as I wait for the last of the brown highlighted ends gets cut off.

Here’s my first silver status pics for 2020. I think I’m over halfway there.

2020 Goals

I’m keeping it simple with these three goals for 2020:

1. To read, “The Alchemist” in Spanish. This book I can read in one sitting in English could actually take all year in Spanish!

2. To cook or bake something once a week I’ve never made before.

3. To only buy one personal, quality item per month for myself.

***The new year also is a good time to re-evaluate your social media. What sites or people are still adding value to your life and which aren’t. Adjust accordingly.

Time to Planner 2020

It’s that time of year again folks. The time to fill out your 2020 planner/agenda. 

I’m now looking through my 2019 calendar. I’m reminded of the important people and events in my life as I’m jotting down in my new planner the addresses, birthdays, anniversaries, etc. It’s also the time I reflect on events, accomplishments and losses experienced.

With my 2020 planner, my thoughts turn to the future. What dates need to be marked? What travel do I want to happen? What goals will I set? What do I want for myself for the upcoming year??? A new year of possibilities is before us.

So you can see, my planner choice is important. Last year I bought a ClareV and it served me well. I chose this year’s planner from Anthropologie. My only requirement for my planners: a spiral binding. (Book type binding never make it through the year for me.)

By the way, my pen is important too. I like to use the same pen throughout the year. My personal favorite is the Sharpie fine point pen. (Insert heart emoji)

Day of the Virgin de Guadalupe

December 12th is the Day of the Virgin de Guadalupe. Catholics from all over will make a pilgrimage to the site where she appeared on this day in Mexico City.

I was fortunate to visit this place during this time a few years back. To see the devout trekking through the streets, and on their knees “walking” towards the shrine is a site to be seen.

An Ideal Birthday for Me

My birthday rundown:

It started off with lots of flowers from Sr. Elizondo…

Hair color correction on my front yellow streak (finally)…

It’s looking a little blonde in this pic, but trust….it’s total silver now.

As a present to myself: a pair of comfy, slouchy jeans, and black studded loafers both from Zara.

And then dinner at Gallo 71. My filet was perfectly cooked and delicious. The restaurant had some interesting decor…

The last gift I received was a chilly night that actually required a blanket for sleeping!
