So yesterday I got my 3 new Old Navy shirts in the mail! I got a yellow, blue, and white plaid top, it's really cute, and then I got a plain grey v-neck in a size Large, and then I got a cute "periwinkle"(light violet/purple) scoop neck in a Large, but it's a little tight and the material is thin.
Today my mom finally accepted the fact that she's gotten a lot smaller. She kept saying she refused to buy new clothes until she was a size 12, well I was online one day and I found a size 12 Calvin Klein skirt, I offered the seller $10 + $5 for shipping, and she accepted. This trip home, even though I bought the skirt for Mother's Day, but I went ahead and brought it home b/c I was pretty sure it would fit her, and I knew she didn't own a size 12 in anything else, so my thought was if she doesn't own anything else that fits, this skirt will fit. And guess what it fits. So that inspired her to go shirt shopping today. We went to JC Penney's and picked up some shirts, the first shirt we picked up I said to go ahead and pick up an XL as well b/c the shirt had no give or stretch to it, so if she liked the shirt, just in case a Large was too small we wouldn't have to go back. But in all the other shirt's we picked up we got a Large b/c they all were stretchy. As we were walking out I saw these plain tops, and I suggested she consider getting one, well out of curiosity she asked if she should try on a medium, and I said sure. I didn't think she was that small yet, but it never hurts to try something on, worst that can happen is you hate it and put it back. So she tried on the medium and they fit GREAT! She looks so skinny. When she was trying on the first 3 shirts I was like wow, you look so skinny, I've never seen you this small. Which is true, I've never in my life seen her smaller than a size 14. And now she's a size 12.
I will say that *unfortunately* my mom's finally willing to get rid of some of her better clothes some of which I really like, and well now they're also too big for me, since I'm about a size 14 and a Large/XL on top. So now that's she's willing to get rid of them they're now too big for me. :(
When she tried the Medium shirt on, and realized that's how shirts are supposed to fit, I was like "now do you see why I told you 'mom I need shirts that fit!'"
I have to write a proposal over the break, and I think I'm going to write about how "Bi Polar is NOT contagious!" You would be surprised that people still aren't sure about whether or not you can "catch" bi polar or if it's genetic. Obviously it's something I'm knowledgeable over, but still something I could learn more about.
Oh and either this evening, or tomorrow, I'm totally going
