A New ME!!

Tiffany and I had a lot of fun on Saturday. Since I had been feeling down lately... feeling OLD, Tiffany decided to help me out.

First, I got my hair cut. I'm still getting used to it, but I'm liking it. I let Tiffany choose the style. I know, daring... but she was right, I needed a change. I have been stuck in a rut of my own making.

We decided to go shopping, but took some pictures first.

Tiffany introduced me to The Dress Barn. I am not a fan of clothes shopping. I hate having to go to the plus size department. We got to the store and she started pulling dresses off the racks. Dresses in bright colors I didn't think would look good on me. But I had put her in charge of the day, so I went along and started trying dresses on.

I was amazed! The colors looked good on me. She took this picture thinking I wouldn't be buying it.

I commented that the dress felt a bit big on me, and so she went out and got the same dress in the next size smaller...... The dress was STILL too big!! Another size smaller and I was thrilled!! I bought the dress!!

I've dropped two dress sizes! Needless to say, I'm not so in the dumps anymore.... Nor am I in the plus sizes either!!!!!!!


  1. You look so fresh! Love the hair! Sounds like a perfect day! :)

  2. Thanks Reema,
    That was nice. I did feel lots better. It was a perfect day. One of the things that is especially special to me is that 5 years ago Tiffany hated me, she was 17 and determined she was all right and I was all wrong. We did not get along. Now... she treats me with respect and we have fun. I don't think a mother could ask for more.

  3. Oh yea, I just added this to my post.... I'm no longer in the plus sizes!!!!!!!

  4. Sandy, You look GREAT!!! Those colors look wonderful on you!!! Congrat on dropping two dress sizes!
