It’s Time For Some Silly Fun

So, I went into a fun little gift/clothing store/spa on Tuesday to buy a little birthday gift for a friend.

Of course, while I was there, I enjoyed looking at all the fun goodies they carry and before I left a friend came in to start her work shift.  This friend, Bailey, is a young woman I met through my daughter…actually a friend of hers…who then became a friend of mine!

Bailey is one of those crazy fun, interesting and fantastic people who you can’t help but laugh with when you’re around her.  Our topic of laughter was a new fashionable piece of clothing they had at the store.

I just couldn’t resist, I HAD TO try it on.

Yes, it was just Christmas…and yes, we overspent again this year.  But a few of the sweaters I’d purchased off Zulily didn’t fit, so I resold them to friends and decided I could spend a portion of the money on something different for me.

What did I find when I tried it on?  I LOVED IT!

IT being a Slip Dress Tutu!  And it was 25% off!

Bailey saw me in it and decided if I bought the pink one, she’d get the black one.

I put it on hold for a night.  (OK, along with a GREAT sweater that had a deer head in a frame on the front and cute black buttons all the way down the back.  It was 1/2 price.)

The next day I went to work, doing all the grown up things I do…spreadsheets, expenses, year-end reports (aaaaaahhhhh!).  After that I got a call from a friend and had a very adult/sad conversation.  Which brought me to my next stop…The Pebble Spa (the store holding my silly tutu dress).

I debated…should I skip it?  I’m way too old to dress like that anyway.  But it was fun…it made me feel like a kid again…young, carefree, like I could skip through the park with all my favorite little friends (kids).

I made myself go in and try it on one more time.

And it happened again.

I went from being this serious adult to feeling like a young girl again.

I bought it right then and there.  I left the sweater behind so as not to overspend.  See?  I had an adult moment there.

And today was the day.

The day I decided to stop being a serious adult…that has dealt with far too many serious situations since I was little…and feel like a kid again.

I had to take a picture for you, since some of you who know me personally wouldn’t believe it without a visual.



As I skip to my car to go to work.

I hope you had a great day like I did!

Feeling fun and fabulous at 48!
