The Crazy Suburban Mom: Weekend round-up, shopping spree giveaway, and random arm flappage

Weekend round-up, shopping spree giveaway, and random arm flappage

 1.  Pandora -  Pandora passed inspection so whatever this wire is...


is anyone's guess.

2.  Wardrobe - I had to go to a graduation party yesterday and don't have much in way of wardrobage  (wrote about it here).  I don't even have what I thought I had because most of what I thought fit, doesn't. 

Took a field trip to Lane Bryant to find out what size I am and for the most part I'm their size 14. Not in everything, but in most things; so I was pretty much doing the I'm a petite dainty flower happy dance around the strore.

Reality check alert!  I know to most people that's as big as a mack truck hauling beef out of Kansas City but to me it was like saying I'm a double zero - Could have knocked me over with a can of Tab.

 I bought a few things to wear to the party.  Well, charged a few things because if I paid for them I wouldn't have been able to afford coffee creamer this week and that can not happen.


I got a spangly magenta tank...


And this turquoise over thing to wear over it because...

...Well c'mon, that color!  Plus it handles random arm flappage.

And I wore them over this denim skirt.  Which I had to get in a size 16 because...


Apparently my ass didn't get the memo that I'm now a 14...

And I also got these leggings...


I don't normally do leggings but...

The snaps on the side make my that area look a bit wider and so it works the cankle thing in a positive way.  And what is up with that cankle thing anyway?

3.  Giveaway -  I have another  Shopping Spree Giveaway coming soon.  Like, very.  I had one not that long ago.  Where you win a certain amount of credit and you get to spend it on whatever you want...  This one's better.  I mean bigger.. I mean better..  Well, tomato, ta-mot-o, you know?

You might want something like this...


...a fabulous silver bracelet, right?


That's a copper and amethyst wind chime and these...


Look at those beautiful tea cups with shell handles...


I'd want that.  If was entering...

 It's a sterling silver ring with blue topaz, amethyst, citrine, peridot and rhodolite.

But I'm not entering.  The shopping spree is coming up soon.  Really, really soon.

I think it's awesome that you've finally rewarded yourself with some new clothes! I did the grumbly groan dance this morning when I realized that my fitting comfortably size 12's are now fitting tightly. I have to go on vacation with family friends in 3 weeks and wear a BATHING SUIT in front of them. Ewww!

Going shopping with a new bod is SO fun!

Glad you fit in regular clothes! Congrats! Don't you feel light and full of life?

I'm top heavy and even with some weight off, I need an X after the size...Yet I can squeeze my butt in a size 12. Weird shopping trip!
