Long time no write...

Not blogging can mean a couple of things.

1. I'm pmsing and too bitchy to write

2. I'm up to no damn good

In this case it's both.

I'm in Texas for work again... And the expense account means eating crazy just because I can. Plus I haven't worked out since last friday (after I found out that I worked my ass off and then gained a pound)

Whatcha gonna do?

Last night after consuming 3 cosmos in the company of a few of the chefs, I ate filet migon with asparagus and had the most amazing bread pudding made with croissants, dark chocolate, and banana. Yum!

Oh, and I forgot to mention that I've been having this incredible urge to shop. With that said, I managed to get a ride to the outlet mall here yesterday. They had an Off 5th, and a Neiman Marcus Last Call.

I was in nirvana.

Ok, it wasn't exactly the newest stuff, but who cares?! I wasn't buying anything (well- a couple of shirts on sale at banana republic, but that's not the point) I found these fabulous Badgley Mischka heels- nude (with a slight pink tint) peep-toe, with a knot/bow thingy on the toe. Beautiful! (I'll post a photo later.)

That was just the beginning.

Dior Sunglasses (really cute!) for $129 (not bad, right?)

And then I made my way to the shoe department in Neiman Marcus.

Oh. My. Lord.

I didn't know I was such a label whore!

Manolo Blahnik, Louboutin, Prada, Gucci, Dior... I couldn't believe it! I saw Louboutins for $299!! They were a size 6 and I would never be able fit them (I'm a size 10)- but $299!? And Prada for $180?!

Of all the things I saw, I kinda wish I had gotten the Dior glasses.

I guess I have gotten too responsible. I couldn't bring myself to swipe my Amex (the only credit card I kept for work).

When I get back home I am going immediately to our Neiman Marcus Last Call to see what goodies I can find!


I told my girlfriend yesterday, after my shopping experience, that after our Europe trip next year, I am going to continue to the save $200 a month and call it a "shopping fund".

Good idea, right??

Ok- tired of typing on my Blackberry. I'll be home on friday.

Until then!

  1. I meant to ask you about the gaining 1 have shed the inital weight that falls off you think you may be gaining some muscle at this point? Which would explain the weight gain? From my experience...its best not to focus so much on the weight, but how your clothes fit and if you are getting closer to the figure you desire.

  2. I guess it’s a possibility, but I’m guessing it was probably water weight from pms. I still have a lot to loose, so I should still be shedding pounds, even if it’s only 1 pound at a time. You can still gain muscle and loose weight, but there are so many other factors (hormones) that can alter what the scale says. Your clothes will definitely help you tell how your body is changing, but I think you would see that more when you are toning up and not necessary loosing weight. In my situation I need to see it on the scale as well as in the way my clothes fit.
