Despite obvious cicumstances, I actually had a pretty great weekend. Got myself out of bed early on Saturday morning to take advantage of some sales and coupons at Kohls and managed to get my mom’s birthday gift and some Christmas shopping – plus one or two things for myself – such as a pair of pants that actually fit. What a novel concept. Yes, the juniors dept may have the cute emboidered jeans and pretty dress pants and such, but by hips are a little too wide and my backside a little too round to try to fit into clothes meant reed-slender 16-yr-olds anymore. Somehow I can’t see myself being too upset over that.
Left there and went to see Sphinx at a craft bazaar in Hendersonville and ended up with even more Christmas shopping done. For those of you who didn’t get to see Sphinx’s masks in person, you missed out; the pictures really don’t do them justice at all.
From there, I went home. And half-napped on the couch. And had leftover Zaxby’s chicken followed by a large bowl of Ben&Jerry’s Dublin mudslide ice cream. Wasn’t in the best of moods at that point…
Taht afternoon, I walked over to David’s Bridal to meet my mother and take advantage of the sales – ordered my dress. We were able to get the bra,slip, veil, shoes and a pretty floral-themed tiara-thingy that day, but the dress was no longer there in my size, so we ordered it. I’ll post a link to the website picture of the dress, but actual pictures of me in it will have to wait about six weeks, possibly longer for altering.
Was out that evening doing..soemthing with John, slips my mind just what at the moment, but on a complete impulse we decided to go to Opry Mills to attack Tower while it’s in its death throes. I can’t resist a bookstore when there’s one nearby, so we dropped by Barnes and Noble too, and there was Sphinx again. Was in a much better mood by then and feeling awake instead of moving in slow motion – not to mention were no longer surrounded by bazaar-shopping churchfolk – so we actually got to have a nice long talk. Don’t know how long it was, but John was nodding off in a cafe chair and the store was near to closing by the time we said goodbye; it was nice to be able to connect with someone like that again.
