Rest in peace Susan

A terrible thing happened yesterday. My husband's Mother passed away. She's been ill, but it came suddenly and was kind of unexpected. Very sad. It's hard to see my husband hurting. Last night was pretty rough, but it's getting better. Today,we went shopping for dress clothes for the funeral. I have plenty in my closet, but of coarse I've grown out of them. So I had to buy new. Luckily Fashion Bug was having a huge sale and I got a shirt, a skirt (I've never worn a skirt before, eeek! but my hubby said it looks good) and some "smoothing" undergarments for $45!!! What a steal! We then went shoe shopping. Check out my heels!

Aren't they cute! I've never worn high heels before either. That sounds pathetic.

Anyway, we went out to lunch. We chose Chinese. I only have a few more days until I start my diet so we had a farewell Chinese buffet day. I know I will eat Chinese again, but won't be able to stuff myself with a buffet and I can't say I'm sad about it. I did try something new while we were there. I've never had crab legs (I'm not much of a fish/seafood fan) So we ordered some. I liked it. I didn't LOVE it, but I liked it. I could only eat a little bit though. My husband brought up a good point, a plate of crab legs would be great for a bander (if you like crab legs) Because for one, it only adds up to maybe a half cup of meat, and it's healthy AND it takes a while to eat it because you have to take the time to crack the shells and stuff. That would def keep you from eating too fast.


Well, I'm going to get off here, hope everyone is having a great week!

I'm so sorry about your husband's mother.

I eat a lot of seafood, I've always loved it but it works well with my band so it's good food choices for me.

Thank you all. I'm really glad that Ashli is doing this blog. I think it will be good for her, as well as an inspiration to other people.
None of you really know her yet, but as you follow her along on the blog, you'll begin to see more and more of her personality. She is very intelligent, absolutely hilarious, very passionate, and extremely determined.
She has a heart of gold, she is my best friend, and she loves me perfectly. She makes me want to be a better man.
I hope that you all enjoy getting to know my bride!

Awe, he is so sweet!

I'm very sorry for your loss. Its so hard to lose someone that you are close to. And I'm sure you'd rather have happy reasons to shop.

The crab legs were a great idea. Sending you some good vibes to get through the next couple of days. :)

I am sorry to hear that. :( My husband's sister just died last week unexpectedly, so I am in the same boat. Hate to see him so sad. :(

Thank you for all your condolences, we appreciate it. I'm sorry for your loss Janelle :(

About the skirt and heels thing, I always just wore dress pants if I needed to dress up. The only reason I went for a skirt this time was because I couldn't find a pair of pants I liked and my husband said he thought the skirt looked good. I'm just not a big fan of my legs right now..but it's nothing a pair of black tights can't help hide! lol!

I just found your blog. I'm so sorry for your loss. So sad to see the hubby in pain isn't it?

And can I just say I love your star tattoos? If I had those I'd be in heels every day!

Love your blog. Feel free to follow me too!

Ashli said...

How funny....I JUST posted something about crab legs on my blog and then I see this post. I was just asking why no one had ever mentioned these to me before! They were like heaven to me last night after only being able to eat about 2 oz. of sold protien for the last month! LOL!! Don't know how I missed this post. lol
