Guess who's pants are too big even though she just bought them a month ago. You guessed it, moi! This morning when taking my picture my husband called me “Skinny Mini.” I see the change in my face more so than the rest of my body, which still carries the excess skin, if not the fat that used to be behind it. But putting on these pants and seeing them hang on my hips (and not look so chic in these pics) makes the weight loss all the more real.
Big props to this sweater – I was tempted to not purchase it because I felt it would be one of those that looks gorgeous, gets laundered according to instructions and loses its shape, sparkle, life. Notsomuch. I wore it a couple weekends ago to meet my friend's twin babies and one spitup on my shoulder. Hit it with a bit of Bac-out when I got home, threw in the wash on the gentle cycle, chose to line dry (though it says you can tumble dry low) and it looks and fits exactly the same as it did upon purchase. Score for Gap!
In honor of International Women's Day, I ask all of you to do one thing today – don't quote Charlie Sheen, don't jabber about his antics, just don't discuss him. You can go back to finding entertainment in his insanity on tomorrow, but today let's drop the subject and spend our time supporting women, and men who treat women with respect.
