Random Monday

So far all of my posts have been about a certain topic. Today you get a day-in-the-life-random-me post.

I am now the proud owner of bras and underwear that actually fit. I’m telling ya…when I started losing weight, I didn’t really think that eventually I would have to replace my entire wardrobe from head to toe. I went from a size 38C bra to a size 32C bra. Actually, according to the lady who measured me at Victoria’s Secret, I’m a 30C…a size which doesn’t exist except at specialty stores. I got 32Cs and just hook them on the tightest hook. My feet shrunk too. I wear a whole size smaller than I used to wear. In the words of my mama…”well huh.”

I took Blue to Build-a-Bear today. It was my penance for dragging him to Victoria’s Secret. I told him that he could pick out one of the Small Fry stuffed animals. I almost had him sold on the cute little monster one, even telling him he could get the one-eyed one for his brother. But he looked up at me with his little puppy eyes and said, “But Mommy, those ones are already made. I want to make a bear and put a heart that I fill with love in it.” So this happened…


Could you say no to this face? Didn’t think so. He named her Rainbow. He was very adamant that she was a girl. She even had to have hot pink bows for her ears. I asked him if she was going to be Black Bear’s girlfriend. He told me, “I don’t know. Black Bear hasn’t met her yet. I don’t know if he will even like her.” Seriously…I birthed a comedian.

I got to run outside today. I hadn’t run outside since the Frosty 5K on New Year’s Day. No wonder my body was craving that vitamin D so badly. It was a glorious 4 miles. I could have gone more, but I wanted to get home and watch Downton Abbey. Disturbing episode, but I think it will all turn out right in the end. That’s the way it is with Downton. They break our hearts and then bring us back up. It’s a roller coast ride.

A couple of blogs I read always end with questions, so here goes nothing…

Do you wear the right size bra?

Tell the truth, you love BaB too, right?

Downton fan, yes or no?

  1. OMG, that FACE! He is so adorable!

    I.. probably do not wear the right size of bra. At my heaviest I was a 36D and now the bra that best fits me is a 32A. Seriously. 36D to 32A. I about cried when I put that bra on. Here's a TMI confession: I actually wear sports bras more than regular bras because they're so much more comfortable. I really should get measured just to see what size I should be wearing.
