FRIDAY FAVORITES....BIRTHDAY EDITION

Well friends, we did it! We made it through another week and maybe with the spring warm-up, the days of April will go even faster! This is been an extra special week because it was my birthday, and while it wasn’t necessarily celebrated in the usual way, I still loved every second of it! May have been one of the best birthday's ever and for a second, I didn't even feel the world was off kilter!

1. MY BIRTHDAY
Yep, From Zooming with my Style Six besties to Face timing with friends and my mama, Serenades form Chrissy and Paula to Mr. Nine picking up my mom‘s amazing gifts and her Key-lime Pie to dinner with my family catered by my friend Carrie who runs Chic Eats Catering including my favorite eggplant Parmesan to sweet gifts arriving this week on my porch from precious friends, cards and gifts in the mail, sweet Instagram messages and comments and the SUN finally shining yesterday on my actual birthday to brighten the mood! it was just perfect!

TOMORROW, TOMORROW......MY BIRTHDAY'S TOMORROW

The sun will come out tomorrow, bet your bottom dollar that tomorrow they’ll be sun! I’ve been singing that song a lot lately for several reasons, one being that my birthday is tomorrow! 49! Can you believe it? I sure can’t because in my mind I’m totally 25! And my sweet Mr. Nine calls me Annie, so this could really be my theme song right now considering that I’m ready for all the sunshiny weather and for this pandemic to pass and bring sunshine into all of our lives.


I got this gorgeous Jumpsuit by Tahari from Nordstrom to take on my trip to Florida for a lunch down there with my sweet friend Kellyann and since that got postponed, why not just wear it now! One of my sweet college boys got these pictures in a deserted alley the day before the traffic ban went into effect and I love the way they turned out. It was a little windy and normally wind is not my friend, lol, but it created the perfect Hollywood wind affect, LOL!



We are so happy to continue to bring you Style Six and we will bring our best looks even if they are shopped from our closet or recycling from the past. just happy to keep some normalcy from y’all! Now, if you don’t mind, I’ve already begun celebrating and I’ve got some vodka spiked lemonade to make, my friend Kellyann will get that, and I’ll explain more later! Cheers to all you March, April and May birthdays that may not get to celebrate the way you want to! We’re going to party hardy when all this is done!

EASTER TIERED TRAY

Easter is NOT Canceled! 🐰 We will still celebrate the Lord’s resurrection! Even though our gatherings may be small and even though you might be having chicken or beef instead of ham, nonetheless, we must rejoice, and I am rejoicing to be able to show you my Easter tiered tray! You know I love these things and with Pink Bunny Ears, well, it’s a given I’M IN LOVE!


I couldn’t resist ordering another book stack from my dear friends at the Etsy store LacyBelles! They add much cuteness as do all the cute little marshmallow mug knit hats that I find on Etsy! I will link all the precious little items up that I can and if you don’t have a tiered tray yet, I truly encourage you to have one shipped to you because it might bring you joy during the scary homebound time!



Click HERE for the tiered tray I did for Easter last year. You'll have to tell me which one you like best. 

So tell me, what are some ideas you’re going to do for Easter? Will it just be a regular meal? Will you hide eggs at your home? Have you been able to find Easter supplies? Will you watch a remote church service via Skype or the Internet?

FRIDAY FAVORITES..THE DAY THAT KEPT ME SANE

Happy Friday my friends! I know it might not seem happy but promise me you’ll try and find some small joys today and this weekend! It’s hard to even put into words what this time in our world is right now isn’t it? I want to say a big thank you for all your prayers and comments regarding my skin cancer removal yesterday, I felt your love and positive vibes. I also want to thank you for supporting my Instagram stories walk and talk, while I may not be walking as much because of my left foot metatarsal issues, I ordered some foot pads that should help and my mouth isn’t hurt, so I can still talk, LOL!

1. SUNDAY WITH MR. NINE
After a week of quarantine, my husband knew I was going a little bit crazy and he suggested we go for a drive last Sunday so that’s exactly what we did before all these lockdowns went into place. It was cold, but we drove an hour up to beautiful lake Michigan, he got some pictures I needed of the jacket outfit below and we just enjoyed a day singing Kenny Rogers in the car and making pitstops at beaches along Lake Michigan! It was serene and peaceful!

I truly felt like it helped my sanity, so I encourage you to do whatever it takes to keep your sanity and maybe it’s just that joint car ride to the grocery store together where you all sing to the top of your lungs! Or maybe have a picnic in the backyard! Or plan a romantic night by candlelight where you both get dressed up at home! Jam even if you are alone! 





I hope to be back to you this 
Summer Silver Beach!

The beach below is where Mr. Nine used to party 
at in High School, lol

That's a wrap. Cheers to a sweet car date and 
It's only water in my Yeti, I promise!! 

2. THIS CABI JEAN JACKET
I have wanted some pieces of Cabi clothing from the first time I saw their cuteness! The styles, the fit, the patterns are all so gorgeous! So, I was overjoyed when Cabi gifted me with this Darling Dylan Jacket! It is the cutest denim jacket with a swing back. The removable denim belt can be tied in the back or in the front which just adds to the cuteness! Mr. Nine was so sweet to get some pictures of me at a deserted art museum before the travel bans went into effect during our car date day!
