at long last

July 28th, 2014


So, I bought this dress approximately four seconds before I got pregnant.  I ordered it from an Australian website which takes a while to ship things to the United States, and by the time it arrived, I was four weeks pregnant, had already gained a few pounds (yup, seriously — I gained two pounds before I’d even taken a pregnancy test) and it. did. not. fit. 

I was bummed.  I couldn’t return the dress because shipping something back to Australia is mind-numbingly expensive — like, two or three times the cost of the dress in the first place.  So, I kept it.  I stuck it in the back of my closet, tried not to feel bitter, and figured I’d pull it in a year or so when I could fit into it again.

And, eleven or so months later… I did! 

Despite my long, long wait to finally wear this dress, I was super excited to finally pull it out.  Even a year later, it’s obviously what I fell in love with when I bought it — the bold splashes of color, the flattering cut (very flattering, LOL!), and the simple, sexy shape.  Just what this new mama needed!

And Rambo liked it too.  🙂 I couldn’t resist including this shot!

    Set goals for individuals as well as your team, and develop healthy problem-solving skills and training.

    s not that you will always attain success, many a times you
    may fail but you should keep yourself going and in the end you surely
    will be benefitted by it. Much of what we take for granted today results from technology that has been developed
    only within the last century.
