You all have been so sweet about my tips for plus-sized clothing. It’s nice to know I’m not the only big girl just trying to look nice. Several of you commented on how ill-fitting plus-sized clothes are. I completely agree! Someone needs to write a letter to the clothing designers letting them know that just because we are heavier doesn’t mean our arms are longer or our taste for stylish clothing has disappeared.
Many of you asked about my ruffled denim skirt. It’s by ZoZo. I got it a couple of years ago at Dillard’s and paid way too much for it. So thank you for the compliments. I will be forwarding them all to James so he can see the value of buying an expensive item every once in a while. I may even print them out and laminate them for my wallet so I have it ready the next time we are shopping.
Speaking of shopping and clothes, I am getting ready to fly on an airplane next week and I am so confused. I am not clear on the liquids rules and what to do with my hairspray. Do I need to buy a teeny tube of toothpaste? Shampoo? Deodorant? I need help here people. And while we’re at it, what do I do with myself during my 8 hour layover in Denver? Is it possible to nap in an airport?
And don’t get me started on how I am going to pack for 5 days in one tiny suitcase. My hair styling tools alone will take up half of the space. No one wants to see the mess that is my hair before I plug in my straightening iron. It’s not pretty. Not pretty at all.
This weekend we will be pushing James through the last bit of tax season 2012. No one can make any loud noises and no household appliances can stop working. I have gone around the house giving lectures about the importance of keeping the peace and the A/C unit that is on its last leg has agreed to hold up for at least 5 more days. I can’t say the same for the lawnmower, but it has been the difficult child for a while now.
Looking back over this post I can see that I’ve covered it all from clothing to airports to air-conditioning.
My job here is done.
