Me & the little black dress

OK OK! Me and the LARGE black dress! Our school fundraiser was last night. I wore this dress....totally something I'd never, ever worn much skin! So much airflow across the neck and arms... Why do we feel that if we are not pencil thin that we do not deserve to show our arms...neck,ect.... Are we any less beautiful/worthy than our thinner sisters? NO NO I SAY! (ok, I'm talking to myself as much as talking to you!) I felt like a million bucks. So what that I've gained a little weight. So what that profile wasn't quite what I'd wish for. I busted out of my boring, humdrum, mammalook, box so far that the box may not be fixable!!!!!! YEAH!!! I've been wanting to get rid of that boring box for years! Wish I hadn't waited until the downhill side of my 40's to figure it out!!!!!

On the down side of last night....we had a dismal night of raising money. The little quilt in the previous post took in $50. It makes me sad and yet glad at the same time. The girl that won it can just barely afford a few extras in her life and since noone outbid her, she won. I am so glad. I had already decided that if anyone had outbid her I would have outbid them and given it to her.
Ok, I may have felt like a million bucks last night and hurt foot or not, exercise must be on the agenda for today. I wish that all these little obstacles would quit popping up in my exercise regime. I'm off...look for a stashbusting report later.......

I think you look wonderful! I hope your mama-look box is gone for good. Sorry you didn't raise the expected amount of money. Somehow others don't seem to see the value in quilts that "we" do. I'm glad it went to someone who will appreciate it.

Hey girl, "You've come a long way, baby!" There might be a lotta lovely skin in the photo, but not as much as there used to be!

What I really like are those incredible shoes - adorable, glitzy, up town. You're just beautiful, and your smile shows that you KNOW it! Good that you feel good.

Knowing it after 40? Hey, there's a time for everything.

You look wonderful! I'm glad you shared how you were feeling. I'm 45 and I feel like frump-queen about 1/2 of the time anymore. (maybe more than 1/2) -- you inspire me!

You look HOT! I LOVE the dress, and I know it made you feel terrific.

Thanks for the comment on my blog, looking after ourselves SHOULD come easy, but sadly is at the bottom of our list.

Keep going! Thanks for the cheer.
