First post-baby night out

Sunday, November 11, 2012

On Cloud Nine! Still living in zombie land with an infant who does not sleep. I waited until the absolute last minute to buy a dress for my friend's wedding. It's tough getting out of the house since I'm nursing (tough to gauge time away from him) and I still won't take the baby out in public (I don't want him to be needlessly exposed to germs right now.) I went to one store and they had no dresses in my size and just TWO in a size smaller. *sigh* Crap. Tried them on anyway - they both fit! What?!?!?! At 8 weeks post-baby, I bought a dress one size smaller than when I got pregnant!

The wedding was last night (pic below) and I felt confident and pretty. I got a lot of compliments and it really did feel good. It was also my first time wearing Spanx - must admit it. From being pregnant I do have a soft muffin top that needed taming.

    This is awesome, and you look fantastic! I have to admit, I can't wear Spanx - all their clothes think I have boobs that are like a quarter of the size I have, haha! :D
