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!
