Tomorrow I get to go shopping with Georgie for my upcoming functions. Georgie has become my personal shopper and fashion consultant since I lost my sight and she keeps me very well dressed hehe. For the concert, I need black bottoms and a white top. I was hoping for a skirt, but skirts have to be floor length, and I’m not gonna try and juggle a skirt and my cane and an elbow going up the steps to sing haha. I’ve got a pair of black slacks I bought last year to go to West Virginia, and I tried them on and they barefuly fit. Way loose yay! But they’ll work. Georgie has a button down white top that she’s gonna bring to see if I like, and then I won’t have to buy anything for the concert function.
The other function I need to shop for is B’s holiday party for his company. It’s a pretty fancy party held at the Hilton. I went to this function 2 years ago when I could see. Gamma and I spent an entire day trying to find a good dress. I was a lot heavier then, and I found an ok dress to wear, but when I showed up at the party, I felt way under dressed. So this year I’ll be prepared for this function. Georgie said the best place to shop for nice dresses that won’t cost an arm and an eye is JC Penny, so we’re headed there tomorrow. I’m trying not to have an idea of what kind of dress I want, because when I have something in mind, I never find it. I’ll trust Georgie to pick something out that’s good. I’ll probably get some fun jewlery to go with it, just those cheap pieces you can only wear a few times lol. A pair of black ballet flats will work for both functions, so I won’t have to drop a lot of money that i don’t have.
After that I’m getting yarn to make a baby blanket for my friend. I can’t go in to any kind of detail in case she stumbles onto my blog. I’m excited to start a crochet project because I haven’t made anything in awhile.
I certainly hope I have enough energy for all this tomorrow. I’ve got O & M with Dave in the morning and it’s freaking cold here right now. Not feeling well today at all, this whole week actually. So I just hope I can survive the shopping trip.
I want to look good while attending these functions.
Really the only reason I wrote this post is because I’m trying to make myself stay up until 8 and nothing is keeping me occupied. And I wanted to write a certain word a lot.
This is my one time of year to be girlie 😉
