Making fashionistas proud

I am so glad that the elections are over. It is the worst time to be a reporter. Last night was a late night filled with coffee, chocolate and lots of junk food.

Today, I went shopping with coworker T and her next door neighbor. We hit some the Salvation Army and the Goodwill in Virginia. I did some serious damage but have tons of clothes, shoes, a bag and some books. For the next few months, I am going to look good. I tried on some skinny jeans that looked great on me. I didn't cringe too much in the mirror. I am slowly becoming more comfortable with myself. My first therapy appointment is the day before Thanksgiving.

While shopping I felt like Carrie Bradshaw and the gang. It was fun. There were a few anxious moments but I did pretty well. For dinner, we hit Olive Garden. The salad and breadsticks were good. I ordered a chicken and pasta dish I couldn't pronounce and did pretty good. The rest will be for lunch tomorrow with the gang in the breakroom. I am officially a member of the lunch patrol. Overall, I am hanging in there. There was a moment I wanted to call my mom and tell her about a dress I wanted. I think she will approve of it and those red heels.

Daily Dose

1. A good Goodwill is AWESOME.

2. Olive Garden rocks!

3. Being a better friend to myself.
