My new Christmas outfit... w/pic
Friday, November 23, 2012
My black Friday ritual is to hit the mall around 10 or 11 am - after all the crazies are back in bed (lol) & still pick up some door buster deals. I got a comforter for my bed & a comforter & sheet set for my son. That was all I was really after today but...
Every year for DH's Christmas party, I borrow something Christmasy from one of my friends or my mom; usually a sweatshirt or sweater. It's normally too big & I look frumpy - but I was frumpy. Last year was the first time in a decade that I actually felt good about the way I looked. DH took me shopping & picked out my outfit. I loved it. This year, I saw an outfit in the sale paper that I thought would look nice, I bought it & DH approves! YEAH!
OK, enough of the build up. Here it is. I'm so happy with it.
BTW-I joined a challenge that'll help keep me focused. I'm 2 pounds away from a normal BMI. I wanna hit that goal before New Years. It should help that my sweater is a little snug. I'm OK with the way I look in the outfit but I'd be happier if my tummy was a little flatter. It gives me a little extra incentive. Wish me luck.
