Anyways, After going though 6 months of Weight Watchers I did what every successful Weight Watcher does, I gave all of my fat clothes as well as my maternity clothes to charity (since we didn't think we could have any more children). Well nowadays that proved to be a bad idea. I've been fastening my pant buttons on the last two jeans that were comfortable to wear with hair ties and wearing old baggy tee-shirts and sweatshirts. This ultimately left me feeling unattractive and generally frumpy.
Last night I was blessed with a visit from the maternity clothes fairy, Autumn. She had a box of her maternity clothes that she was no longer using and after visiting with her and the girls for a while I went through the box and to my surprise I loved and could actually fit into at least HALF of the box. I was so amazed and grateful and generally emotional about it that I think I might have cried a little. HEY I'M PREGNANT... I get a bit weepy. When Aaron got home I was so excited to show him everything and I think I might have cried a little again... hah.
I guess when it comes down to it, I really needed a little boost and even though to Autumn it was a small gesture to me it was something much bigger. I don't think I even realized how much I needed to really get some nice clothes and how much of a difference it would make on my mood. I woke up this morning and got dressed and didn't have to worry about what I was going to wear or how uncomfortable I would be. I just threw something cute on and actually put make-up on and did my hair. I feel good and I feel pretty AND pregnant!!!
So THANK YOU, Autumn! You've made this girl's life a little more pleasant.
Little gestures!!! I've always said that every thing you say or do can change lives. I know that it sounds dramatic BUT it's true... Every thing a person says or does can change a life and hopefully for the better. I can honestly say I feel changed! I am a much happier person today than I was a few days ago and it shows... on my clothes :)
