I went shopping on Saturday for something teal to show my support for a friend who buried her mother that day after a damn good fight against cancer. I never actually met the woman, but reading what her daughter wrote about her and the stories she shared changed me a little. She was such a giver, so caring, and had a great sense of humor. I only wish I'd had the chance to actually know her. She raised an amazing daughter who is raising three amazing children of her own. A beautiful family.
The tanks were buy one get one half off and I can always use a basic black tank so that put me at two. Yesterday was Mother's Day. I went shopping with one of my sister while the boys hung out at home. I had eyed the tank with the tie Saturday, but assumed it wouldn't look good because I have a bit of a mom "belly sag" and stretch marks, but I decided to suck it up and try it on, plus my sister needed something nice to wear to a school thing. (She got such a cute top that I'm so jealous of. But I can borrow it! Yay! And she looked great in it.) it's long enough that it doesn't show belly and I love it. The flag shirt jumped at me as I was about the check out and they had the necklace paired with it already. I know, a jumping shirt, scary right? I'm still considering a really cute pair of earring shaped like wrenches. So that's that. Use what you have and add a couple of fun things because it's fun!
