GFS Feature: Roses and Thorns

I haven't done a Roses and Thorns post in a while. Remember, sharing roses means sharing something good that happened to you or that you are grateful for. Sharing thorns means sharing something that just SUCKS (so eloquent, right!?!)

(Zara Cardi, Seychelles Booties, Target Tank/Earrings/Skirt)

Me First!

My Thorns of the week..in no particular order.

1. I completely missed the new episode of my favorite show The Good Wife! Forgot about it:(
2. I caught a virus Monday that had me on my face! It literally lasted less than 24 hours!
3. I had two students tell me they hate my class because I am strict...(not really that bad of a thorn though)
4. Money still won't grow on trees no matter how many times I check the trees in my neighborhood.
5. Learned that people will dismiss you if you don't agree with them all of the time.

Now the ROSES!

1. Thursday night tv is back! Grey's Anatomy, Project Runway, DC Housewives!
2. Had a pretty good hair week.
3. Fall is officially here! The mornings start off in the 60's! YAY!!!
4. A reader of this blog contacted me about a wonderful opportunity.
5. I went to ZUMBA (salsa aerboics) this week!

...there are more but that would be me "showing off"...
Share some of your Roses and Thorns of the week!

I'm loving those booties too!

Here's my thorn- I've had a cold all week long that has made me miserable

But here's the rose- I stayed home yesterday and read an entire book!

Have a lovely weeked.

I love the oufit..especially the booties....**wondering why they are not in my closet**

1. I need new tires and the money that I am waiting on to do that still hasn't gotten here!!! **eye roll of disgust**
2. My mom is still extremely sick. Congestive heart failure is no joke and when I think about her I tear up on site.

1 Heard a Marvin Sapp song on the radio and it gave me the holy spirit in the car. Scared the crap out of me but it was a great feeling.

2. I have another fashion show today that will display my stylist work.
3. I am working on a fall/winter collection that hopefully be featured a local boutique.
4. Glad I feel secure in who I am because of HIM.

I'm not even a realigious speaking person but for some reason I'm full this week.

Be blessed all and stay productive.

Well a rose is that I got to visit my cousin in Washington DC this week after not seeing her for about a year. The thorn is that she recently found out her significant other cheated and is having a baby with another woman so she's been pretty upset the whole time.

Love those booties!

I gotta tell you, when I went to Zumba a while back, it was the thorn of my week! I've never felt so clumsy and uncoordinated in my life!

Let's see, the rose? Taking my kids to Skateland for a fundraiser for their school. It was fun to experience something with them that took me back to when I was their age.

The thorn? Waking up to sound of people screaming and fighting in front of my house in the middle of the night last night, and yes, we called the cops.

Reiko, do those shoes hurt? They look like it...and they're cute!

1. My job is hard, but I am lazy. So it could be that I just don't want to put the work into to it that it requires...

2. I am still struggling with my weight loss.

3. I did not win the lottery this.

1. I have a job.
2. I lost 5 lbs this week.
3. I am rich in love (corny). I am looking forward to the TAKS bonus!
4. I will be going to my grandmothers 95th birthday party next week!
