Saturday 12-04-10 Shopping disaster...

I got up early and went shopping and I really had a good time.  I went and got a hair cut and really enjoyed my day shopping.  I picked out my mother what I thought was the greatest gift in the world.  She had mentioned that she would really like some pearl earrings so I found some that were beautiful.  I got a really good deal on them and I thought oh boy I have her the perfect gift.  I call my sister Annette and was all excited about it,  guess what she got mother for Christmas.  Yep you guessed it a pearl necklace and earrings, so I am back to the drawing board tomorrow and I have to take the earrings back.  Now I have no idea what in the hell to get her.   

Great day on my eating and I got a lot of walking in at the mall.  I walked in twice from one end to the other end, and before you thing I did so great it is a very small mall.  I am going to go for a walk in the morning before I head out again and I am going to walk for at least 30 minutes. 

We are going to a Christmas party next week and I am acutally looking forward to picking out something to wear.  For the first time in a few years I can wear something that is not to tight or makes me look like Moby Dick.  I have a couple of outfits in mind and I will post some pictures of the party and what I decide to wear.   It is a great feeling to be able to fit in a chair or fit in a booth at a resturant again.  It is weird what you notice that is getting slimmer, like me today at the barber shop.  I noticed that when she put the cape on me that I now have a neck and not so much of a double chin anymore.  I also noticed that the older I get the more I look like my mother, but hey I have a good looking mother so what the hell.

Have a great night and here is yesterdays food journal.  I am going to go read a few posts while I am getting ready to take a bath..

It is a very thoughtful gift!

Pearls are like diamonds ... you can never have too many. But I understand that you'd like to give something special. I've seen the brown "chocolate" pearls that are stunning. I'm sure you'll think up something just right.

Oh that is funny that you both had the same idea. You know what they say- great minds think alike!!

Debbie - what awesome NSV. I love that I can fit in booths! That was a big one for me. How fun to go to a Christmas Party. I hope it goes superbly. Good job on your walking. You are cruising right along! I totally need to pick it up on that one. :)
