Two of my Elon girls and I went to a shopping outlet mall today. I found someone to take my shift with the 103 year old, so I had plenty of time to relax and be with my friends! I needed to be around them more than I realized *sigh* Let's just recap my day...
Woke up, morning routine
TaeKwonDo class - I actually landed a turning back kick on a black belt!!!! Woot woot!
Came home, freshened up, went to my homegirl's house that was driving to the outlet.
We get to the outlet mall and had to wait for my other friend that was running late. We both had not had lunch so we decided to go to Outback for lunch while we waited for the other friend. The hostess sat us at a booth...a fixed booth where you can't move the table or seat..AND I FIT!!!!! I haven't fit in a fixed booth in forever!!!! Woot woot! My friend that drove has always been a petite person so she was looking at me funny when she saw how excited I was sitting in the booth. LOL! Our other friend join us and we eventually leave the restaurant.
There is a Lane Bryant outlet where we were. I have been too big to shop at Lane Bryant for awhile now. So while my friends are looking in the normal people stores, I branch out and go into LB, just to see if I can fit anything or at least see how far I need to go to get back into LB clothes. I ended up buying a pair of jeans, THAT FIT, for 38 bucks!!!!!! SCORE! I cried in the fitting room.
I meet back up with my girls, bag in hand, eyes red. They asked me what was up and I basically told them how I lost 90 pounds and how I now can shop at LB. They were super happy for me. I cried again, LOL!
My girl that met us at the outlet drives a Sequoia truck. Several times as I rode shotgun I could never fasten my seat belt. I always played it off, but it was always embarrassing. Even though I know my girls love me no matter what size I am. So today, I asked my girl if I could sit shotgun in her truck just to see if I could fasten the seatbelt...IT FASTENED!!!!!!!! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
We all find the items we were looking for then we went to Cold Stone for a treat. We all love Cold Stone :) We chat it up, say our see you laters, then head back to Raleigh.
So to recap: did something cool during TKD class, spent time with some of my Elon girls, sat in a fixed booth, brought jeans that fit from LB, and fastened a seat belt that I have a long standing history of not being able to fasten!
What an amazing day!
