TOM'S, Modest Fashion, and Resolutions

I found this website that sells Toms for super cheap!! Some less than $20!!! Heellllooooo bargain! Do you love Tom's? Have you heard of them? So cute.  OK HERE IS THE LINK.  In case you don't want to read the rest of the post.  In case you find cheap Tom's more appealing than me.  You probably didn't read anything except the sentence in all caps.... me either. 

Wanna hear something sad? I picked out some clothes for myself for Christmas and didn't try them on.  All XL.  Tried them on Christmas day....... They are too small! UGH.  THANK GOD I started  my 5,678th diet today. 

Day one went well. More on that tomorrow.  I am really looking forward to wearing those clothes I bought...MOTIVATION.

I've been considering making a "Modest Fashion" tab {with actual cute, modest clothing...not like Amish or anything...come on now {no offense to any Amish...I love you all. You're awesome and I can learn a lot from your simple living. you probably aren't reading this because you all don't have computers. Or cellphones. Or light switches}).  But like EVERYTHING else... I feel unqualified to do it.  Everyone would say, "What does she know about fashion?!"

Did you know I use to work in fashion?? yes, yes I did.  I use to work for Nordstroms.  I often got the opportunity to work directly with the buyers (that's what I wanted to be). 
In fact I went to school for it my first year in college.  I have always LOVED fashion.  I was voted "Biggest Wardrobe" in junior high...LOL.

What happened? Oh yeah I got pregnant with Boy 1.  And super fat.  Then pregnant with Boy 2 right away.  Now 4 boys later....I hate to confess that I often wear dull, boring, whatever is clean and whatever fits kind of outfits.  Sigh.  Well NOT ANY MORE! It's a New Year's resolution.'s on "The List" (serious background music). 

Ok enough of my ramblings. It's late, and I'm tired.  Boy 2, 3 and 4 are asleep, and I'm gonna go to bed soon.  Well actually after I watch Biggest Loser on Hulu.

LOL. I think I like you sleepy. It makes you funny. :) Sorry about the XL. I already told you about having to buy an 18/20 for the first time ever in my life. U.G.H. I have to go grocery shopping Friday eve so I can get started on Trim Healthy Mama!!! I have heard of TOMs but don't own any, have never seen them with my own eye, and actually thought you were talking about Time of Month. Ha!
