Yes...MOVE! I originally planned to move closer to end of next month but, the leasing agent offered me a smashing deal to move in on the 3rd of July. YES...next Saturday!
So needless to say I spent the entire weekend packing, throwing crap away and shredding. I got 2 words for you people....GO PAPERLESS! I shredded my brains out today. I receive most of my bills via email, but as I packed my belongings I ran across 3 baskets full of OLD mail. GO PAPERLESS!
As I thumbed through the old correspondence I stumbled upon my Layne Bryant credit card, which I never used. One day I ran into Layne Bryant in need of a pair of jeans, and the sales associate offered a discount with credit card approval. After I purchase the jeans the card never saw the light of day.
Well my friends I decided to hold a special ceremony today...a Layne Bryant Credit Card Shredding Ceremony!
Just Listen...I apologize for the video appearing so dark (ummm...I assure you that the fart sound after shredding the 1st card came from the shredder and not me)
After shredding I packed up all of my former BIG GIRL clothes. The end result...4 garbage bags busting at the seams. Time to give back, so GOODWILL here I come! 4 bags of clothes makes me wonder what in the world will I wear when I return to work in August.
I barely put a dent into my packing, so I think for the next few days I may post some of my favorite past post.
OH...so on to my change of a DRESS. I refuse to spend THIS summer covered up. In the past, I always wore jeans or capris and a big shirt over another shirt to cover my stomach. And the downside from wearing jeans and 50 shirts during a scorching HOUSTON summer... embarrassing unsightly excessive sweating.
THIS summer I refuse to hide behind my clothes. I took myself on a mini shopping spree at Ross Dress for Less. In all honestly I loathe Ross for the simple fact it remind me of a garage sale. BUT imagine my surprise when I started perusing the dress rack and found some jazzy garments! Take a look:
For those of you who missed this dress on a previous post...
And last...my favorite summer get up:
I purchased this skirt about 5 years ago during one of my many WW stints. After I gained weight, I held on to the skirt. Not only can I wear the skirt now, I need to take it to the alteration shop for a little nip/tuck. I found the shirt at Kohl's. Like Ross, I loathe Kohl's. I just happened to be in the neighborhood, popped in, and spied this t-shirt.
Wait until you see my black dress and the little cute number I found at Marshall's.
You know what...back in the day I rarely looked forward to shopping. And NOW, a few pounds lighter, shopping excites and exhilarates me...sometimes. Sometimes meaning the times when other people spend their money on me:-)
