Five Years!

On July 16, 2011, I started a Facebook page to share what I wish I had always known about nutrition and style. I was so excited when I reached one hundred followers! 
Today there are more than twenty-eight thousand of you.

I was a lifetime yo-yo dieter whose weight might fluctuate by as much as fifty pounds in one year. There were times when even my extended family members didn't recognize me if they hadn't seen me for a while. Reading the book "Eat to Live" by Dr. Joel Furhman taught me what to eat and why. 

After my weight and poor health issues were under control, it was time to tackle my frumpy style. That is still a work in progress, but it is fun to share what I learn with you.

To celebrate my five-year blogging anniversary, Mr. Mickey took me out to dinner last evening. I wore a new tunic by I.C. Collection over old Mesmerize pants; both are from one of my favorite places to shop,

My tunic is a size medium. The pants are a size six.

The bag is old from Saks Off 5th. The shoes are old by Nina New York. The necklace weighs about fifteen pounds (only a slight exaggeration!), and I bought it at S.M. Bradford at Harbour Town Yacht Club on Hilton Head Island last year.

The nail color is OPI "Dutch Tulips".

Even though I have several red tunics, I wanted this one too because it reminds me of a mullet hairstyle; all business up front and a party in the back.

We visited Gourmet and Company, which is our favorite restaurant in Johnson City.

My dinner was the fabulous heirloom tomato salad with grilled peaches.

Mr. Mickey had the spring garden salad with benne brittle and grilled wild salmon.

Here is what happens when I see a tiny baby praying mantis on the wall during a photoshoot and totally forget what I am supposed to be doing...

Mr. Mickey says that he no longer kills bugs because of me. Great compliment!

Thank you for joining us on this beautiful journey through midlife and beyond. The second fifty years are truly the best!

Fifty, not Frumpy Anniversary!

The Facebook page Fifty, not Frumpy began four years ago today and the blog followed shortly thereafter.

I hope that I have inspired you to dress well, go out on dates, enjoy more fruits and vegetables, and to enjoy the little things in life even more than you did before you found my blog.

On this celebratory evening, I am wearing items from ShopMyFairLady. The IC Collection semi-sheer blouse can be found here. The reversible neckline white tank is from Clara Sunwoo and it can be found here. The ankle length Mesmerize pants can be found here.

The shoes are from Dillard's last spring. The necklace, bag, and jewelry are all old.

I also hope I have inspired you to get pedicures, manicures and get your hair styled in a great easy care look that works well for your face shape. 

I am sending you love and light. I hope we have many more fun years together!

Thank you for joining us on this journey through midlife and beyond. The second fifty years are truly the best!
