Willie Horton’s Batting for Kids

13 Jul

Hey Detroit Tiger fans, I had the opportunity to attend the 13th Annual Willie Horton’s Batting for Kids baseball challenge at Comerica Park last week. The event benefits Don Bosco Hall, a non-profit that helps youth and their families with crisis management and counseling. This event invites 450 youths to participate in several baseball activities and meet Tiger great Willie Horton. (I’m with Willie in the photo above.)

Beaumont Children’s Hospital sponsored the event, and I attended as a representative.  The smiles and the swings were great!

Go Tigers! Go Beaumont!

 

Summer Shoe Spree

8 Jul

Summer shoes are always so comfortable especially because you don’t need socks.  I purchased three very distinct shoes this season that I’m enjoying. The flowered heels are by Ivanka Trump from Nordstroms.(This link takes you to the sale!)

The silver and black sandals are by Miu Miu from Tender in Birmingham, Mich. They are are all sold out!

The beige canvas shoes are Tom’s. I love the philosophy of Tom’s where they buy a pair of shoes for a needy family when you purchase one!

The shoes below are from my daughter’s closet. Her foot grew during pregnancy, and she can no longer wear these. They make a nice addition to my collection. Did you buy any shoes this summer?

Let’s celebrate the 4th with some red, white and blue fashions. Hopefully, the weather will hold out so we can have some great BBQ food in style. Here’s some fun patriotic garb from Meijer’s — a Michigan-based retailer.
