Just wanted to swing by for a quick NSV (non-scale victory) post.

Braylen's brother is getting married this weekend, and their wedding is 20s-40s themed. I have been at a loss as to what to wear, because, well... my fashion sense these days is nil (or any days, really). Fortunately when we went to visit my mother-in-law yesterday, she had several extra dresses. I thought for sure none of them would fit me (because my MIL is one hot mama and way tinier than myself) but fortunately she had a dress that just might have been a possibility.

But then she said it was a size 14 and my heart sank.

I've been a size 16/18 forEVER, so I knew that it wouldn't fit me.

For the love of all things holy please ignore my laundry basket/pile. I'd be embarrassed, except I'm not.

But I tried it on anyways because I like to torture myself.

By the way, have I mentioned I only have one leg?

And guess what? 


So I know one dress size isn't the most impressive thing to ever happen. 

But it's the small victories that sometimes feel the most rewarding. At least to me, anyways! 

Oh, and I sent a picture to my husband and he said "Babyyyy! You're hot!". And that made me feel good because he calls me pretty and beautiful everyday (seriously, I'm spoiled), but rarely do I hear "hot" (like... ever in my life). So it made me feel, ya know, special. =]

Hope y'all are having a good week!
