Royal Blue with an Opalescent Glass Necklace

We enjoyed one last holiday splurge yesterday by having brunch at the Grove Park Inn's Blue Ridge Dining Room

I have to admit to you, I screamed when I weighed myself this morning. I gained four pounds during Christmas week! Eeeeek!

I haven't gotten on the scale in a few days because I knew I would just stress out. By the same token, I have not eaten with wild abandon. Even with very small portions and limiting the desserts to a minimum, I still gained weight. 

Having late dinners and rich foods I don't normally eat were the culprits. It was wonderful to spend special times with family and friends, but I am happy to return to my normal routine today.

That's a glass of purified water with fresh lemon. I will be drinking only this today. (I use a glass Hummingbird straw because lemon can damage tooth enamel.) There will be fresh fruit before noon and one large leafy green salad late this afternoon.

As we were leaving the resort we ran into my sweet wonderful friend Rose who was also spending the day there with her family.

I wore a tank top and pants from Chico's. The cardigan is by Adrienne Vittadini via Saks Off 5th. The suede shoes are by Sam Edelman via Nordstrom last year. The bag is by Ralph Lauren via T.J. Maxx. 

I bought the necklace at S.M. Bradford while we were in Hilton Head last month.

I recently learned another sweater hanging technique and I want to share it with you. I hope it helps you to avoid the shoulder nipples look.

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