Fun weekend ahead: Wedding edition! And NSV!!

Hey friends! Just wanted to post a blog and say hello before I leave for my long weekend in Auburn (again haha)! I am in one of my best friend's wedding this Saturday and all the festivities are starting bright and early tomorrow morning! I am about to hop in the shower, head to the tanning bed for a good ole' spray tan and head to Auburn! Tonight some of the bridesmaids are going to dinner and tomorrow morning we are all going with Kyndal, the bride, to get our nails and toes done! Yay! Then we have the rehearsal, the rehearsal dinner and the fun just keeps going and going! Her wedding is at 2 p.m. Saturday and hair and makeup starts at 7 AM!! I am not a morning person but if it means getting up and getting makeover, I am there!

I am so indecisive on what to pack for the rehearsal dinner haha! So instead of bringing one dress to wear, I have like 5 packed with all different shoes so I can try them on! Goodness gracious, I wish I were more decisive. Anyways, I will be home late late Saturday night so I just wanted to say hey to my friends!!

Also...

I have an exciting NSV for myself. I am officially, in every sense of the word, a SIZE 16!! When I started my lap band journey I was wearing a size 22 pants/jeans. Since about March I have been a size 18 in pants, jeans, dresses, you name it. About 2 months ago I bought a pair of size 16 jeans that I love and I squeezed myself in them but they sure were t-i-g-h-t! I have been holding off on giving away my size 18's just in case. But for the past week, every store I have been in I have asked for a size 16 and.....they all fit! Not just in one store, not in two stores, in all the stores! All the 18's seemed a little too big in the waist and legs so no thank you....bring on the 16's! For a fashion lover like myself, this is super duper exciting! Doesn't everyone want to be able to shop at any store and be able to wear the clothes? I know I do. Before my surgery I made a super long pro's and con's sheet and up there at the top was being able to go into any given store and wear a "normal" size. I still have a ways to go but I will take size 16 over 22 any day :)

Hope yall have a fabulous weekend!! I will bring lots of pictures back to show you! Love you guys to pieces!! I leave you with pictures of Kyndal and I :)

  5. You look like a supermodel... Has anyone ever told you that? Size 16... Skinny Bitch! Holla! I am sure you're going to have an amazing time this weekend. I wish I was young and all my friends were getting married... but i am old and they are all divorcing. I think we should start a fancy party service for divorces... Then i could finally be a bridesmaid... or Divorcee-maid. LOL, I know I'm grasping at straws...*M*
