Shopping .. for myself??

I hardly ever shop for myself. I know .. it's pathetic. I put my kids before myself all the time .. I even put my husbands needs before my own. I wish I was one of these women that go shopping every week .. instead of like three times a year! My fluctuating weight issues over the years .. losing weight .. gaining it back .. losing it .. also don't help. There is nothing fun about shopping when you are overweight!

I wear scrubs to school so I don't really need nice clothing to wear on a daily basis .. most of the time when I get home I practically jump into my pajama pants right away .. they are just so comfy.

Sometimes however it is neccessary to actually buy myself some things. Now that I've lost 25 lbs .. that's twenty-five my pretties!! ..  shopping doesn't seem so depressing. My husband and I had a very casual wedding reception to go to this weekend .. yep it was in a barn .. it was very low key! I went out to see if I could find a summer dress thinking they would all be on sale at this time of year .. well I didn't find a dress but I did find some nice tops.

I really like this one ... I have to wear a black tank under it .. I paid $10 .. regular $36!

This one is kind of elasticated just below the waist so it tucks up a bit at that part .. super comfy .. again I paid $10 .. regular $36!

I also got some tank tops from Ricki's as they where having an awesome summer sale. It was buy one summer clearance item get one for $1 so I ended up getting these for $5 each!

And finally I got this green shirt and some shorts .. the tshirt was $5 and the shorts where $14.99 .. I also got a black pair of shorts but they are in the wash already!

I seriously couldn't believe the deals! I didn't luck out on shoes though .. why does shoe shopping suck so bad in this city?


  1. shopping after losing weight is the best.
