There are many things in my life that have been affected by our TTC journey. One has been my wardrobe. When we started TTC in June 07, I quit buying new clothes. Why? Well, I thought I would get pregnant right away, of course. So instead of buying regular clothes, I was going to wait until it was time to buy maternity clothes. Oh sweet-naive-early-days-of-TTC-Shannon, if only you knew.
Fast forward to 16+ months later. I got up this morning and went to pick out an outfit and it occured to me. I have bought NOTHING new in all this time. I take that back. I bought a dress. The one I bought for a bachelorette party so that my friend would quit calling me old (Apparently Ann Taylor is not appropriate clubbing material) This realization angered me. I was so angry with myself that I had put my life on hold for all this time. And what does an angry girl do? She shops!
I warned Dan ahead of time because I knew it could get pricey. He was very supportive so today, between appointments, I hit the mall. When it was all said and done, I bought 3 pairs of pants and 3 sweaters along with 2 tops. It felt so good to pick out items I liked and buy them and not worry if my pregnant (or not pregnant cause who knows anymore) butt will fit into size 8 Limited Cassidy Pants in a month or two.
I wish I would have done this earlier because I FEEL GREAT. And I look great, too :)
I hope everyone is having a wonderful week!
