With the bad news comes the good… I lost my ten pounds!! Seriously… I understand how that is kind an awkward thing to be cheers-ing given the situation, but given the situation: HECK YES. I didn’t TRY to lose it… but I just haven’t been really hungry and I’ve been super stressed… so BOOM. 10 lbs gone. Seriously… jackpot. Sorry Mom, I know you don’t like that I’m excited about this, but I mean at least I get SOMETHING out of the deal! Fortunately my appetite has returned (as has my taste for beer) (and pizza) so it will eventually weasel its way back. Until then? I am going to enjoy wearing my wide leg Mavi jeans, because they were a little tight ten lbs ago.
So, like I mentioned- I’d normally shop away these blues. However, that is not an option. Luckily, I have an amazing (AMAZING) support system. My friends have been the most amazing girls I could ever ask for. My family, the same.. Regardless, I can assure you that right now, I’m very HAPPY. In a time where I feel really, really low… I’ve never felt more loved. In my entire life. I honestly have the most amazing people and I am humbled by how much they care. Luckily, my dad and stepmom wanted to make sure I knew I was loved… and often times the best way to show that is a material item. :-) At least I like to think so.
Some fancy shoes to kick away the blues.They are TOMS- and I am so joyful each time I wear them. Literally, I like bounce around my house/office/everywhere just so thrilled that I am wearing such HAPPY shoes. Like a literal party on my foot. And the best part is, with each purchase of TOMS shoes, a pair is donated to a child in need in a third world country. So somewhere is the most precious young girl getting her FIRST pair of shoes. I hope she is bouncing around with excitement, too! (I also hope they gave her gold ones instead of boring white canvas ones).
Thank you so much to my stepmom (and to you too, Papa) for getting me these shoes. They really brightened my mood, they OBVIOUSLY brighten up my daily outfits, and were just the thing I needed to start walking forward, literally. Love you both.
And thank you to my readers for still reading this. Next week will be a momentous occasion- halfway done!
