This past weekend resulted in something quite amazing for me: a delightful shopping trip! I was just stopping by Lucy because of their summer sale (I want this shirt) and I put some things on hold. While I was walking back to my car, I stopped into White House Black Market just to try on a couple of pieces displayed in the window. I didn’t actually have any confidence that they would fit me or look good on me, but I figured I was there and my colors are black and white (I always wear black or white to dance because it doesn’t show sweat). I wanted to try on this and this. I wandered on over to the sale rack and grabbed something else. I realized that I was wear Lucy capris and that cute little bustier wasn’t going to look that great with those. I thought, why not? and grabbed a pair of jeans from the sale rack that looked like they were a trouser/wide leg jean. They were a size 14 and even though I’m a size 14 at Gap (I went down a size, woo hoo!), I didn’t think WHBM pants would fit me since they probably run smaller, being a more expensive store and all.
Oh my goodness! The jeans fit! I couldn’t believe it! I really didn’t know what to do with myself, outside of jumping around in front of the big mirror of course. As it turned out, I grabbed a smaller size in the bustier and the dress. The sales associates working in the store were so much fun. They actually brought a couple things from the back that were on sale for me to try on. I really was a size 14 in their pants; it wasn’t some sort of pattern fluke for the trouser jeans. Overall, we had lots of fun and I bought a few things that are super cute. Perhaps I’ll post pictures as I wear them.
The rest of my weekend went pretty well. On Friday I bought four containers of raspberries (two red and two gold) and by the time I was headed home, they were all gone! My friends and I snacked on them all night when we were out dancing. Saturday was another dance day and shopping. On Sunday I went to see Toy Story 3 with one of my friends. It was a really fun movie! The movie theater was next to one of my gym locations, so I had planned ahead and brought workout clothes for a jog on the treadmill. I jogged/walked for 3 miles and then showered and got ready to go out dancing (again). Sunday was spent at my condo that I’m moving out of, so I the only food I have there are Lean Cuisines. On my way back from dancing on Sunday I went to the Wendy’s drive through. Usually I get a cheeseburger combo meal, but this time I got a Jr. combo meal. It filled me up and I didn’t feel sick afterward AND I didn’t go severely over my calories, in fact I ate just the right amount.
I had a wonderfully successful weekend which I’m hoping will translate into a wonderfully successful week!
