Mini Update #1
In an earlier post, I mentioned that I was trying to get to my goal weight. Well, I am .1 pounds away from it, and I have an exciting shopping story for you!
I needed a dress for an event that was coming up and didn’t have much time left to find one. I decided to go to the consignment shop around the corner, which isn’t always a good idea when I have Cupcake with me. She got away from me at a small store, tripped, and got a small carpet burn on her forehead. I was desperate to find a dress, so I went with her anyway.
I found the perfect looking dress. It was Nine West, black, and had a cool 60’s vibe to it. The price was way more than I wanted to spend, especially at a consignment store ($50! At a consignment store!), but I thought I would at least try it on anyway. It was an eight. I held my breath, hoping it would look as cute on me as it did on the hanger.
Trying on clothes has been a harrowing experience since puberty struck. After one scarring school shopping experience when I left the store without new clothes and bawling my eyes out, I have never been one to enjoy clothes shopping. This time was different.
The eight was too big. I couldn’t believe it! There wasn’t a single black dress in a smaller size. Even though I left the store empty handed, I was happy. I don’t think I’ve ever been smaller than an eight before.
Mini Update #2
I’ve been working on my Writer’s Store Contest story idea. I’ve even gotten some scenes sketched out. I am actually putting myself out there, and I am really excited about it. I will let you know how it goes!
For the month of August, I am watching one movie a day and discussing it on my blog. Watch along with me or choose a movie for yourself. Check out my 30 Days, 30 Movies page for more info!
