A plethora of awesomeness!

Wow, so I had a pretty good day of shopping and listened to your suggestions. I didn't spend a ton and got some good classics to mix with some of the clothes I do have that still fit. I hit Stein Mart and Target, two of my favorite places. Let me tell you, if you have the time, you can find some GREAT finds at Stein Mart!

Items I purchased
  • Black Pants (a must!)
  • A-line skirt (another must!)
  • Black Dress with elegant cream/white design
  • 3 cardigans (black, red, burgundy)
  • 3 sweaters (teal, green, red)
I bought everything a little "clingy" so I will be able to wear even as I lose more weight. I gotta say, buying clothes that fit really can make you feel pretty good about yourself! Clothes that fit, really show off the hotness I've been working at! ;)

So, thank you for all your suggestions!!!

Switching gears...

My next half marathon is just days away, 5 to be exact! I'm getting so excited. This weekend I worked on the most badass playlist of all playlists. If you have suggestions, I'm always up for new ideas and downloads, I love all music, and am always looking for new stuff!
