Bye Bye Layne Bryant

My Bad!  It has been way too long.  I started my new job on Monday, which has kept me pretty busy.  It has been really wonderful though.  I didn't realize that I could actually enjoy my work.  I have worked from home for the last 5 years...so I had to go shopping since I couldn't wear my pjs to the office.  I must say that I was so nervous about trying on clothes.  It was the first time in a very long time!  After the 20W became too tight, I refused to buy anything else.  I had one pair of jeans...tight ass - make your belly hurt - huge relief to take them off pants, 1 "dressy" shirt, and a couple of maternity sized T-shirts (nope...I don't have a baby).  Sad right?  We  started at JC Penny because I didn't want to spend a lot of money, then I realized I didn't want to look like a grandmother, so we moved on to Layne Bryant where NOTHING worked.  I was sooo discouraged!  Last stop...Old Navy to look at shirts since the pants weren't working out.  I decided to be brave and try on a pair of slacks...and they totally fit!  THEY FIT!! Yes...they were an 18...but NOT an 18W...and they were roomy!  The first piece of clothing I have purchased in 3 years from a store that didn't sell super-sized animal-print bedazzled blouses w/ big-ass bedazzled jeans...a REGULAR store!  I will probably frame those bitches.
