This is a dress that my good friend Bonne,over at MJ's Farm made for me! Talk about brave- she had no idea what size I am and the fit is pretty good. I'll have to make a few small adjustments but all very minor! Thanks so much Bonne-and the body butter is divine!!!!! Did you make that??????
I wish you could see the fabric-it's really pretty. The photo really can't capture how pretty the fabric is.
Why the dress?????
I am undergoing a yet another stage of life- it's the stage where you have to dress for the size you are rather than the size, (among other things) you WISH you were-
So I'm searching for answers and of course my friends are standing by to help!
Here's a little insight to the dilema~
For the last few months-maybe a year-I have been haunted by "MARIE"-
She is everywhere I turn and she makes me mad!!! I've been battling a weight issue for the last few years and so far I'm losing. No- not weight-the battle! The weight just gets harder and harder to lose.
To make things worse I am haunted by MARIE!!!!
Last year sometime I began to think that maybe it just wasn't possible for 50+ girls to drop the pounds anymore- and that's where Marie comes in!!!!
All of a sudden I start seeing her(you know...., Marie Osmond) everywhere!!!
She's my age and she looks just like she did in 1976!!!!!!!! Maybe better!!!
She's advertising Nutrisystems- and losing 40 pounds!!! GRRRR!
Next thing ya know I see her in my quilt magazine- not once but maybe 6-7 times!!!
It's not enough that she has 8 kids,she weighs 135 lbs and she's 50- but she has to have a sewing machine with her name on it ,a line of fabric and more....more..... more!!!!!
I can't escape her anywhere!!! I visited a store to look at some sewing machines and WHO do you think popped in??? YES- there she was-life sized, standing,in her skinny jeans right beside the machine I was looking at!
She has been with us so much that each time I lean away from my **MAD DIET**** my son says,"Mom, do you think Marie would be eating that?"
AGGGGG! She makes me crazy!
He told me he was gonna get me a t-shirt that says WWMD - "What Would Marie Do?"
I need MARIE"S address- I have found her 40 pounds and I'd like to return it to her as soon as possible. :)
I'll fill ya in on the MAD DIET shortly!
Thanks again Bonne!!!
