Wow, Where Did The Time Go?

Hello everyone!! I know you've heard it by now, but I would like to officially say Happy New Year!! We can leave behind all the good, and the bad, and focus on making ourselves better for 2012.  Last month was really exciting for me.  Besides celebrating Christmas with my family, I also received my Bachelor's of Arts degree in Communications.  Graduation was bittersweet for me.  I'd been working on this degree since 2005, and for various reasons (had my son, working full time jobs) I finally made it out this year.  That was the sweet part.  But now I have the daunting task of looking for a job (I've been unemployed since June 2011.)  That's the bitter part.  So for 2012, one of my main objectives is finding a job where I can utilize my degree.  I'm optimistic that I will find something; and even if it's not what I want, I can work it until something else comes along. I actually have a job interview on tomorrow, so wish me luck!!

So, I wanted to share some pictures with you of my family during our Christmas get-together at my Aunt's house.  I know, I know, but it's better late than never.  Just humor me and look at my pictures, please?! Lol!!

My Ma

My Sis

My Nephew, His Girlfriend and My Son (he wanted to get in ALL the pictures)

I would've gotten a picture of my Daddy, but he was busy frying fish and chicken out on the carport.  Anyhoo, my sister called me Rosie the Riveter because of the headscarf I was wearing.  I really like it; it has a really silky feel to it with really nice colors of turquoise, charcoal gray, black, white, and navy. The only thing I don't like about it is I think it's for someone with really long or really thick hair because of the way it's made.  It's sort of bonnet like and when you tie it, it kinda flares out at the top (picture the top of a brown paper bag.) So I have to play with it to get it to look the way it's supposed to.  Anyway,  I'm also wearing my Old Navy chambray shirt (which I LOVE), and the navy blue wide-legged trousers from this post.  And to keep the look comfortable, I put on a pair of Mens Tretorn sneakers that I got from DSW for a whopping $10!!!! I saved over $50 by getting them on clearance.  So, here's a summary of what I'm wearing.

Headscarf:  Target $7
Earrings:     Cooper-Young Festival $1
Shirt:           Old Navy $15
Belt:            Target $16
Trousers:    Lane Bryant $60
Sneakers:   DSW $10  

So, how did you spend your holidays or is it too late to ask? Lol...
