Slice of Life Challenge #9 - $$$

Today, my sister had driven up from Indy to Fort Wayne (sorry Sarah I didn't call). I ended up going over to see her and spend time with her. We went shopping...Target, Kohl's, and my favorite - Ann Taylor Loft. Since losing weight, I am able to shop there. Please understand...I haven't been able to shop in the "normal" side of stores for a long time of my life. I was always bigger than my sister and my mom, and I'd love to be able to share their clothes. This is a huge accomplishment and I always found LOTS of clothes the Loft which made me feel beautiful. The past three times, I have struck out and I started doubting myself and even how I view my body. Today, was not one of those days. I always have a hard time finding pants that fit my small waist, curvy hips, and powerful legs. I found four today!!! Two at Kohl's and two at the Loft. I even bought four shirts. Yet, the most special slice of my day was this...



Sliding the credit card wasn't as fun, but I feel absolutely gorgeous in this...I feel that my inner beauty shines through. I'm excited to wear this to many weddings and fun dressy occasions (I'll have to create some)!

Cathy, I too am the biggest fan of the Loft. I love it there! I have a favorite dress that I would love to buy there but am too poor as of late!!!! Buying clothes is the most fun! I am glad that the slice of life included a trip with family.
Don't apologize, I understand!
