Hey Sailor...

I had a good weekend in sales which I was thankful for.I got the kids and hubs covered for Yule.Still don't have my mom or ma in law covered though.Anyone else always feel guilty during the holiday season?I do and I hate it.I know there is more to this holiday than just material items but I do have some awesome people in my life and one of these days I'd just like to be able to tell me mom "hey I love you,thank you for everything and here is a pair of diamond earrings"....one day,right?

Well,anyway sales means a trip to the post office!Exciting!No not really,especially during this time of year but duty calls,its a good walk and oddly my kids look forward to the post office.More so I think they like to get out of the house and Heidi is smart enough to realize that she always gets something out of our outings.Like today it was $1.25 in quarters worth of tiny dinosaurs from the vending machine at the indoor flea market we walk by on our way to the post office.Its the little things in life.No,literally these things are TINY but she is fascinated by them.

Today I realized I wanted to wear a dress but couldn't.You see a trip to the dry cleaner for most of my dresses is badly in order and sadly a lot of my cotton dresses(which seemed like perfect attire in this hot weather)I can't wear since my waist still isn't back to normal yet.Blame it on getting older but loosing weight gets harder and as I've lamented before the last of my baby weight is all in my stomach.I've weighed more in my life than I do now and was still able to wear my size 3's no problem but not right now.I am happy to report that a size 6 is now baggy and I am in 5's.Its been a slooooow process getting back into shape this around but it is progress and so shoot me I like doughnuts...or 2 I won't lie ;)

Being able to wear size 5's means I am now able to wear these sailor pants I picked up for $2.00 at the thrift store a few months ago!

The 60's beaded angora blouse I picked up at one of the local vintage stores here call Vintage Sanctuary.Its a cute store but tiny!It has a good selection with a variety of prices from high to low.This top was only $10.I remember when I picked up it the tag read "as is" so I expected some kind of flaw...I've YET to have found that flaw on it,mistake?Don't know but I'm not arguing it.And of course you know by know my love of berets,especially angora ones.This one comes from my Friend Jan back in Indiana's shop.I miss shopping there almost as much as I miss her.

And that guys and ghouls concludes my outfit post.Plus side to weight loss is getting back into my old clothes again and thus I can actually do more outfit posts.I will say that though I resisted the urge to buy bigger clothes because I just want to be back to my norm that my hat and shoe collection grown a ton thanks to it.See,every cloud has a silver lining.Gals,if you don't get your pre-pregnancy body back right away like some lucky ducks don't worry,if you're like me your shoe collection will thank you.Till next time!

    ahhh..I just pulled out my "skinny clothes" bin the other day & it was like Christmas--the joy of fitting in to clothes you already own is totally underestimated.

  3. Oh i love this outfit so much!You look devine!The red beret is awesome as is the sweater vest & i can't believe you got those darling pants for 2 bucks!
    Yes,yes i totally get the guilt thing,i see so many things i'd love to buy my parents & in laws & i feel so bad that i can't .
    Speaking of guilt,i so wanted to buy something from you when you were giving a percentage of sales to that little boy but i just didn't have any money left after i'd paid bills & bought groceries etc.I was just going to buy that white blouse with the lace on the front & i didn't even have enough for that so i'm sorry about that,i felt bad :(
