bla bla bla...
I love winter. well, more specifically, i love winter in Florida.
When the temp is in the mid 60s, but the sun is shining, and the wind is negligible.
except for the fact that my lips are chapped, and i cant find my lip balm. other than that, i'm a happy camper.
I even went to the mall yesterday. and it wasn't torture!
my grandmother, knowing i need work clothes, and that she cant do any christmas shopping, since she's stuck in rehab for her hip, gave me her Sears card and told me to get whatever i needed.
we found parking spot at the front, sears wasn't massively crowded, and i actually found clothes that fit me properly. not that i bought much i'd normally wear anywhere... but i needed office-appropriate clothes. although i managed to mix it up a bit.
two pairs of pants. black and a dark greyish khaki. with normal waists, so i wont be showing off my tattoo every time i sit down. lol
i hate pants that aren't low waist. they never seem to feel right on my body-shape. but i'll deal. i'll never wear them outside of work, but that's what jeans are for.
three tops. a tan cardigan with pretty rhinestone buttons, a blue cardigan with a broach of all things, and a button down shirt in a color i cant really describe. it's not quite pink, not quite lavender, but a lovely mix of the two. suffice to say, it does wonderful things for my green eyes. a white cami to wear with the cardigans. although, i intend to wear them as shirts. they're also VERY VERY soft. I like being touchable. i think it's the tease in me. the tops are all from the junior dept. and appease the style-maven in me. 'cause i will NOT start dressing like i'm in my 30s. no matter how much they're paying me.
a new pair of black dress shoes. pointed toe, with a kitten heel. but office appropriate, comfortable, and more importantly they fit. unlike all my other black shoes. and with my first paycheck, i'm going back to buy the same pair in tan. cause they're absolutely gorgeous.
and two new bras, because they were on sale at a price that made them an instant purchase. ($3 each on clearance? hell yeah! i usually pay $20-$30! Natural D breasts are really hard to shop for, I'll have you all know...) I did discover something interesting, and potentially frightening. despite losing at least 10 pounds since i last bought a bra, i've gone up a size, again. this frightens me because my mother and grandmother both have breasts of a size that cause back problems. even with the family tendency to have a large enough fame to be able to handle it.
I dont have my mother's frame. I'm shorter (she's 5'11. why couldn't i get her height instead of her boobs?), with smaller bone structure. but i apparently have the same body shape. this does not bode well for my future breast size. or spine health, for that matter. o_O *starts saving up for a reduction*
and my mother also got two shirts for herself.
the total for the entire purchase was $110. how you ask? christmas sales, and the fact that i had two credit-rewards coupons that my grandmother gave me last year. for $20 and $17.50 respectively. which bought the shoes and the tan sweater. if nothing had been on sale, and i hadn't had those coupons, the total would have come to around $300. so we done good. =D
let's see. what else is new... Digital cable fucking rules... I have 400+ channels. lmao
and since they installed the box converter outside, the cable internet signal is stronger. so those probs we've been having have been solved.
my grandmother is doing wonderfully. she's stronger now than she was before she hurt herself. she still has a couple weeks left in rehab, but when she gets out she should be better off than when she went in. and she knows it, so she's not fighting them, like she normally would.
