Cloudy with a chance of Hunter Boots

Happy Friday! It's been raining the past couple of days and the only good things from the rain are the grass is greener and I can wear my Hunter Boots. I paired my Hunters with a sweater skirt that I got from the thrift store and my black tunic from H&M. I think these boots can bring any outfit some life. I also think these are great in the winter with a pair of fleece inserts. I got this pair for Christmas last year and a black pair for my birthday this year. I have a great tip for you gals that have a pair of Hunter boots and have noticed they get dull and have a white film. Nordstrom sells a boot shine sponge that works fabulously. I am normally not one that goes on and on about a product, but it works great. I have talked to a few gals that have these boots and they were not aware that Hunter offered this product and it's only $5.00.

One of my blogger friends, Adrienne from The Rich Life on a Budget, does a post called Positively Friday. In her post, she focuses on the positive things that are going on in her life instead of the negative. I enjoy her blog very much and hope you'll check her out. I am going to try to continue  to be positive in a world, where it is just sometimes easier to be negative. So here it goes:

1. I am so happy that my son, Harrison, got his cast off this Tuesday. He still has a little bit to go, but he is walking better each day. I am so happy that he has such a supportive and great kindergarten teacher. It has made this whole broken leg thing a little easier.

2. Also, I feel so great to finally be apart of something that truly helps others. I am taking part of a program through the Celestial Mission. This program is providing the homeless a meal that come in during off main dine eating hours. How it works is they provide you with a food saver. You then put your left over meal from dinner into the food saver, then in the freezer. The mission then comes and collect the meals you have frozen from your house. You are only giving your leftovers, not making a full meal. I am not really a cook, but I am only required to give 2 single serving meals a month. I can handle this and hopefully cook more. I have been wanting forever to give back and there never seems to be enough hours in the day. This is a great way to get people involved. This allows someone that comes in off the street to have a great meal from someone's left overs. This is my first meal and I think this will help me cook more.
Yum! porkchop, corn, and noodles.

3. Lastly,  my younger brother, Kevin, is currently working for the AmeriCorp. He decided to do this for a year after he graduated college. He is one of the kindest people I know. He is currently helping people that have faced a natural disaster. He sent me a message during a crazy week that said he was thinking of me and loved me. That made all the craziness better. I am so lucky to be related to a person like him.

Well I won't be doing this every Friday, but I wanted to share.
Do you have anything positive to share? Do you have any plans for the weekend? What do you wear your rainboots with?
