I haven't even had lunch and already the day has been interesting.
The Hunny says to me before leaving for his conference, "I get paid Friday. Go buy yourself some new clothes and under things for you new job." Woohoo! Yes sir! Snap to it!
So I took Oatmeal Head for a haircut and Maybelline for her first pedicure, dropped them home and headed for an interesting place which the Hunny recommended I try, being so amply endowed and all (if you're a guy or a kid, please go away now). This little shop, next to a cute quilt shop and near the Starbucks, is called the Bust Stop. (I was gonna link it, but I don't trust that the people who were supposed to stop reading actually did)
Yeah. So I was prepared for it to be a little expensive, seeing as it deals strictly in undergarments and swimsuits. And it is. But then, I'm accustomed to shopping the sale racks (I said racks! tee hee!) at Lane Bryant. My favorite bras have all come from Lane Bryant. But having lost weight, I needed to be measured and fit. Which means trying on multiple pieces. Ugh. Especially when most of them didn't fit. It turns out that the weight loss translates to a smaller number, but a larger letter.
This little shop is adorable. Yes, they have some racy things there, but they specialize in prosthetics and hard to fit. I walked out with one bra and $125 poorer (I know, right?!). I think that's what we paid for the Hunny's last suit. But when I put my old foundation garment back on I was shocked at how poorly it fit in comparison to the new one. I plan to go back to Lane Bryant and try on some in my new size, compare fit.
Now that I'm home, I open bills. It is payday, after all. The water bill always includes fun city info, and this month's came with info on free CPR classes! Each Saturday in June, the park system offers free CPR to anyone who registers in time. So I signed up for myself, Maybelline and Oatmeal Head. They weren't wild about the idea, but Maybelline babysits, and you just never know with a teenage boy when he'll need to know CPR. I'm thinking maybe I should go back and register Little Guy, but he horses around a lot. We'll see.
So I'm looking forward to what the rest of the day brings! Or maybe I should just clean the house. Naaaahhhhh. I think I'll continue teaching myself to tat.
Until I write again ...
