I figured I better start shopping now for spring and summer, since I have donated all my old stuff. I realized I had absolutely NOTHING to wear, everything in my closet and drawers is way tooooooo big :) The pics don't really do the outfits justice, but I thought I would share my great finds. Ross is the place to shop. Can anyone resist a dress for less than $15.00? I think NOT.
This is a dress I bought for work
Cotton sundress, could be worn to work with a jacket perhaps. This really is a cute dress, it is navy blue, has a ruffled neckline and it gathers at the waist, you just can't really see the details.
For those summer nights and concerts at the beach
This one is especially for the DH, just in case we get a night out or I will wear on vacation. Smoking hot !!!!!!!!
Yeah for great shopping deals. I also got a top, but forgot to take a pic of that, it is PURPLE of course. All these great finds for a grand total of $52.00. Now I have to find some shorts and a tankini top.

I had a list of a bazillion things I was going to do over the weekend, and since I was off on Friday, I had an extra day to accomplish alot. So the checklist of a bazillion things is DONE - I grocery shopped, baked a cake, gave dog a bath, cleaned house, coupon clipping, got a hair cut, laundry, etc. Ooooh and the best part.... I got some serious retail therapy on Friday. I will post pics tomorrow of my hot deals.
Yesterday was a rest day, literally, I slept til 10:00 a.m. (which is unheard of), but then just kinda bummed around, made a breakfast protein shake, read the paper, stayed in my jammies til noon, I mean what else are you going to do with it pouring down rain. Helped my daughter bake a dessert to take over to her BFs house. Got dressed and took dinner over to a friend who just had surgery on Friday. Came home, gave myself a foot soak and pedicure while watching the Indiana Jones Movie Marathon, yep, I watched all four movies, I'm such a slacker, but I enjoyed just bumming around. And I had a couple helpings of homemade bread, my weakness.
Didn't sleep well last night though, I woke up about 2:00 a.m. with horrible chest pains and abdominal pains, almost bad enough to go to the ER, but I stuck it out. I believe I was having a gall bladder attack. I haven't had one in about five years, so I am hoping I don't have another one for another five years. Kinda scary with the chest pains, but having been through one of these before, I knew it wasn't a heart attack, thank heavens. So I just lay there trying to sleep, but the pain was excruiating. Now I'm at work, still in some pain, but less intense. Hopefully in the next hour or so, it will have all subsided and I'll be back to "normal".

Well my usual morning protein shake turned out crappy this morning, not sure what the problem was, I think it was lack of fruit so it turned out tasting like chocolate ice milk - ICK, so disappointed but I'm not letting that ruin my day. I am rather hungry since I tossed the shake in the sink.
So hmmm, look over there on the counter.... someone brought in bagels. I am really hungry so I talked myself into having a bagel. It's ok really, you can have one with some light cream cheese, it's ok. So, I just finished a bagel and boy was it yummy and it's not going to wreck the rest of my day's eating plan, so I am glad I let myself have one. Every now and then, it's OK, really.... it's taken me a long time to get to the point of "OK" and I'm happy I can say "OK" every now and then.
Not much of anything planned for the weekend, except a run in the morning and a yoga class, but this lady of leisure will find something constructive to do, no couch potato weekend for me, been there, done that, and over it. Hope everyone has a fun filled weekend.
