Spread the Sunshine

One of the few downers of living in Florida is the inability for overweight people like me to hide in sweatshirts and fat pants well in to the summer. Well, at least in public. I wear my sweats and yoga pants at home, especially the high school freshman field hockey sweatshirt that is ratty, worn and LOVED. Hubby hates it. I love it.

I went to Target today. As I walked to the back of the store to find my treasure I happened past the ladies' section and noticed a sign for tshirts that were labeled as "tissue quality material." TISSUE QUALITY!? I laughed out loud. I should have taken a picture. I mean seriously, clothes are getting thinner and thinner these days and those cheap tissue shirts DO NOT HIDE my lumps. I hate them for being so damn cute (the shirts, not the lumps) and I am pissed at myself for being THAT person who hasn't lost the baby weight. Damn. But, I was so happy to see a label that actually, truly, 100% described the piece of crap on the shelf.

I was quite pleased with myself that I left Target 10 minutes after I arrived with only the thing that I went in to buy. Amazing. I did not get sucked in. I did not go to the baby clothes or toy section. I did not walk around. I consider this my coup d'etat for the week.

I'm right there with ya- cute shirts. In fact, all kinds of cute clothes. And me with the baby weight (10lbs to go!).

That said, congrats on leaving with the one thing - I don't think I've EVER escaped Target without dropping $100 on *random* unnecessary stuff.
