Dear Avenue...


Dear Avenue,
I am sorry I couldn't continue to support your goal of providing fashions to the overweight.  I realize that I always contributed a good portion of my annual income to keeping large florals en vogue and overpriced tents in stock.  However, you no longer carry what I need so I had to say goodbye.  I'm hoping this is an indication that many others have had to say goodbye as well.  I'll be honest.  I'm not going to miss you.


So the weekend was pretty good!

Friday night, we went to happy hour to welcome one of Ron's friends back to town.  Drank too much but didn't eat a whole lot.  It was nice to get out.


Saturday, my youngest had a birthday party so it was up to me to entertain my oldest.  We went to the mall, found a dress for a wedding, bought some sparkly stuff for my daughter, treated us to some chocolate from Popcornapolis and she got her first mani/pedi.  She loved it and we had a good time.

This is the dress I got.  Don't mind little hanger loops...and the fact that I'm not wearing a bra or spanx...I think  it'll come together nicely with all the proper support.  ;)


Then we met back up with the rest of the family, had lunch and went for a swim.  Sunday, we hit up a Splash Park with the girls and did some swimming in the afternoon.



Maddie's feeling a bit poorly this morning but hoping it's just a summer cold and doesn't linger.

So a Monday DEMotivator:

Isn't it great when you don't have to shop in plus sized stores anymore? Regular sizes are sooooo much cheaper, and the pickings are abundant! Congratulations:)
