Red Hat Happy

Have you ever heard of the Red Hat Society? It's a group of women, usually over 50, who belong to a larger group of women who refuse to grow old gracefully? It is a national group! Check out the Red Hat Society website at It all began when a group of girls that used to hang out, just to have fun, were trying to find 'the perfect birthday gift'. They ended up giving a red hat! Thus the red hat society was born. It has evolved into many chapters throughout the country as a sisterhood that embraces growing older. When I turned 50, I decided that I wanted to be the 'queen' of something. I knew about the red hat society but always thought the girls were a lot older than me. I decided to start my own chapter so that I could hang out with the younger bunch (those around the 50 age). We became the Salt Air Sisters Staying Young (SASSY). I have enjoyed my girls so much! We visit a lot of restaurants that you wouldn't normally go to alone. We have supported some of our sisters who have survived cancer. We have cried and laughed and hugged for many different reasons. If you are missing something in your life and feel like you need some 'hangout' friends, I suggest you try the Red Hat sisters! Look up the chapter in your neighborhood. If you are under 50, you can join, as well. You have to wear the pink hat and lavender dress rather than the red hat and purple dress but you get to hang out with some awesome women! Have you ever heard of the If not, you should check into it. They know exactly what you need!

Headline Shirt Giveaway

Ada's 2 Cents Headline Shirts Review
Have you heard of Headline Shirts? I recently just learned about them and am so glad I did. They have Vintageblend Tees that are hand-sewn in San Francisco, CA, using a super-soft,poly/cotton blend and also use Eco-friendly inks and materials. To make them even better with being an Eco-friendly company they also ship their products in compostible bags which makes this company even better In my opinion. 
Ada's 2 Cents Headline Shirt Review
 As for my my shirt of choice I picked the Original Chronic Shirt which I love even more now that I have it. The shirt feels so soft and is comfortable to wear. For the material it's not very thick like most tees,but it's thick enough to where you can't see through it. So far the material seems to be of good quality and it holds to it's shape which I really love! My shirt has been worn and washed a good decent amount and it has kept it's color,the design isn't coming off and my shirt is still looking like new. Overall I am very pleased with Headline Shirts and they are now my new fave shirt shop! On top of having some cool shirts their site is very easy to navigate,and customer service is a top priority to them,which I recently found out by experience. 

Headline Shirts don't just have shirts for men and women,because they also have a cute collection for kids as well. Aside from the shirts they also have Tank Tops and accessories,so check them out while they have a great sale going on and as for shipping,they ship worldwide! They also have a sizing chart for your convenience,but for a heads up the womens shirts run a little small and will shrink a little if washed in warm/hot water and dry them,so keep that in mind when ordering. 

Headline Deals & Special Offers: 
  •  Right now you can sign up for Headline Shirts Newsletter & receive a coupon code for $5.00 off. {Signing up will also get you extra entries in giveaway}

For the past few years, as I've gotten older, I have been thinking about the benefits of retirement. Lots of things come into play when considering the many years ahead. Will I have enough money? Will my cost of living expenses increase or decrease? Have I saved enough, invested enough, made wise enough decisions?

While reading a few (ok, more than a few) articles on retirement, I realize that based on my standard of living and the 'experts' recommendations I may be working until I'm 103! Even though I started early with the 401k, worked for Local Government for over 22 years and will have a pension, I'm not sure I'll have enough money!

Will Social Security even be an option when I am old enough to consider 'not' working?

So, what will you do? Do you plan to work til you are too old to enjoy retirement? Will you retire early? Will you be ready when your 'perfect' retirement age comes around. Really gives you something to think about, doesn't it?

Wordpress or Blogger

I have spent the last few weeks trying to decide which of these I like best. I have my original blog on Blogger but am unhappy with some of the features. My biggest gripe is in not being able to do a new post for each page. They are always on my home page. I know if I were a computer geek that I could tag and/or label to make the posts appear on other pages but I'm not.

I love the design of Blogger and I seem to be bringing traffic a little more each week. Is it worth the switch? Is this option something I can live without? Most of you have been blogging for a long time and your opinions mean a lot to me.

So, which do you use and why do you like it better?
