Summertime, Summertime, Sum,Sum, Summertime....

I am officially on summer vacation...Woo Hoo!! Though I have a busy summer ahead...I am still glad to see another school year behind me!!  Now, I realize my OOTD looks much like yesterday's, but I wanted to end the school year in one of my favorites.  I love this knit jacket, with the jeans and jewelry!!
I will be spending a week in Chicago with Mr. B soon...returning to teach summer school speech...then taking six week's to write a book!!  If I am ever going to do this, the time is NOW! So many of you have encouraged me about this book!  In the middle of the summer, I will turn 60...worth some kind of celebration...RIGHT??  

So, what is on your calendar this summer??  We would love to know!!  Finally, a fabulous reader, Lise, sent this sign to me and I love it so much I printed one to leave in my classroom to face first thing next year!!  She is one of many new readers from Generation Fabulous...welcome to everyone!  Thank you for your sweet emails and comments...I'm so glad we will be spending time together!

Happy Memorial Day weekend everyone!!  Expect something wonderful....

  15. Hi Pam,

    Love you holding the sign!! I wish you would come dress my Mom. She's older but is stuck in her ways and doesn't listen to me. I bet she would listen to you when she saw how chic you always look!!!
