Double whammy

Holy moly, people. Two wonderful things happened to me while at Target:

1. I found a replica of an Anthropologie skirt I had been drooling over for $13.46! I feel I could submit my find to Glamour's "find it for less" article which I must admit, is always my least favorite of their features. Only because I find that the cheaper alternative never quite lives up to the original. However, in this case, the only thing missing were the buttons. And, saving $135? I could pay two credit card bills with that and still hit up some Starbucks on my way home for that.


2. Yes, this is bragging but, it's been a lot of hard work and control so, bear with me. In the past 7 months I have gone down three sizes. I'm back in the size I was in when I first started dating Fran, five years ago- hallelujah. But, never in a million years would I ever have expected to wrap a size TWO around my derrière. That's right, a two. If I could wear that tag inside out believe me, I would. I haven't really bought many Merona pieces so, more than likely, it's one of those brands that have bigger sizes attached to small numbers. For now though, I am basking in the numerical glory. 

PS: Feliz cinco de mayo!

Hah! Congratulations on your 2, hot Momma!! I can't wait to see you in a beautiful wedding dress :D

Also, for a few cents, you could attach some of your own buttons. Great shopping!! Would I be a crazy copycat if I went and got one too??
