Doing my part

To stimulate the ecomony this weekend. I never go shopping. I actually hate it, too many choices. My motto is make do, go without, wear it out. But, I guess you can only make do and then go without for so long. I realized this weekend that I have only one pair of shorts, the rest were from high school/college (10 yrs old). And they were looking pretty bad. I didn't own a pair of sandals. And I still didn't have a bathing suit, only the one that was about 4 sizes too small.

The 3 of us spent a great weekend together, but my dh forced me to go shopping. He insisted on it. So, I got a new pair of crocs and keens shoes (on sale 15-20% off each) at this outdoor store. I got 2 pairs of shorts at Kohls. And I finally got a bathing suit at South Moon Under. This is the suit, I wish her chest came as an add-on. :)


The bathing suit was not on sale, which 1/3 of the way through summer, I wasn't happy about. So, I'm feeling a little less like the frumpy monster ate me. Now, I'm just sort of nibbled on. :)

I worked on some projects for a guest design team position. Here are some peeks, hope I can post soon.


How was your weekend?

GREAT suit choice! Your husband is a good man! Although he could have nominated you for TLCs What Not to Wear and while it would have come with a 5K shopping spree, it also would have come with a bit of humiliation which I am never sure is quite worth it.
