Friday Favorites: Best Inauguration Fashion Then and Now


Happy Friday Besties! What a week. This is not a political post at all this is a total nod to all of the tradition and fashion of the Inaugurations of today and in the past. I have been blessed to be part of the Inaugurations in one way or another in 1989, 2001, 2005, 2009, 2013 and 2017. This is not something I take for granted and these are some of the most special moments of my life.

Today I am linking up with ErikaAndreaNarci to share the Best Inauguration fashion from this week and in years past. Let's leave politics at the door and just talk about these beautiful fashions that are now a part of history.

Inauguration Fashion 2021

Jill Biden

Where do I even start? I have long admired her fashion sense. For a woman of a certain age, actually a woman of any age, she really knows how to pull together an outfit. While she is a 60 something professor and grandma, she is the furthest from dowdy.  During the 2017 Inauguration, I was working at home and Running Daddy came in and said to me "I know you are working but I need to know what you think of Dr. Jill's outfit." The answer, always spot on. I am excited that the next four years mean four years of Dr. Jill's fashion sense. 

Side note, I am totally here if she wants me to stop by the White House and pick up her hand me downs, we look like we are a similar size. No need to Thred Up your stuff Dr, Biden, I will take anything you don't want any more!

Ok, let's get to the fashion! Starting with the memorial event for those that died of COVID, this purple coat and dress is spot on. It has been reported that she chose this color as it is a mix of blue and red for a sign of unity.

Friday Favorites: Funny Doormat, Good Chardonnay, New Hallmark Movie, Best Joggers and Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders


Oh Besties, happy Friday. Whew, this week is continuing to challenge me and I did have a moment of COVID crying this week. Not a major meltdown, just moments of missing some people, but a Good night's sleep was finally had and that really helped reset the week. It's finally Friday and I am once again I am linking up with up with ErikaAndreaNarci to share the things that have brought me Joy this week I am definitely finding Joy in the occasional cup of fancy coffee these days.

1) Bravo Doormat

My sister gave me this doormat for Christmas. It is not only funny, it's very accurate. We put this at our porch door and not the front door, as most people we know come in through the porch. Well, when we are not in a pandemic and people actually come to our house, people come in through the porch door. Hoping that people will be able to come and see this funny doormat soon. I wonder if I can get a Hallmark one for the front door?

Comfort in the Chaos

This week, was a lot. The first week in January at my day job is always busy. We are finishing up the previous year and then also starting a new year and a new election cycle. Then, Wednesday happened.

This week was just heartbreaking for everyone in our country. As a person who has spent her entire adult life as part of the political process and has walked those halls and had US Capitol police officers who were my friends at our wedding, I am beyond words at what I saw and what we all saw.

When things are bad, there are always glimmers of comfort and before and after the incidents on Wednesday, here is where I found comfort this week.

Monthly Musings-December 2020


Happy Holidays Besties! Welcome to the last Monthly Musings of 2020. This link up with Holly has truly been a highlight of this year. I love reading everyone's entries and if you read her blog, then as you can imagine, Holly is the Best blogging partner. Are you ready to talk holidays and jumping into the New Year? I sure am.

1. If you celebrate Christmas, what are your traditions?
Well, typically we go to church late in the afternoon and then gather with a group of friends after church for a cocktail party. That will not be possible this year. On Christmas we open gifts, call my family and then typically head over to Dancing Granny's. 

2. If you celebrate Hanukkah, what are your traditions?
I do not celebrate Hanukkah but love the traditions and miracle of Hanukkah.

1) Mrs. Meyers Plumberry Body Lotion

I have been working really hard over the last year to clean up my beauty game. I have really been loving the body lotion from Mrs. Meyers. I used the rain water scent in late summer and that was a Good choice. For fall and winter, I chose plumberry and it is the perfect light spicy fruit scent for this time of year.
