Not so fun, I say.

Take a Guess..
What am I referring to…
that is..
not
so
fun!?
(Shopping)
Yep.. I decided Spring is coming,.. I am at that “in between,” size again.. ( Maternity clothing, and “normal” wear.)
HA!
Let me tell you…
There is NO SUCH THING as “In Between” clothing.

I took three of the older kids with me,,, we went to three stores..
What did I come home with?
This:
* Two Shirts
*A confusion about which mirrors are really right…MINE or theirs?
*A BIG reality Check .. ( notice the emphasis on BIG) 
*Less money- As usual …spent it on the kids
*A confirmation as to why I normally shop at the Local Used Botique… where all of the clothes are sorted by color and not SIZE
Leaving the last store… my waist was probably 2 sizes larger…
because my hope had been deflated!
I was mumbling under my breath about how I cannot understand how I didn’t see at home what I saw in those mirrors.
Is it the lighting?
AND THEN..
I walked to the van, looked up, and remembered where we had parked and saw this again:
Do you think this sign was put there just
for me?
Thank you… encouraging sign- you!
Shopping-
Not so fun, I say!
Not yet!

    I agree, I do not believe there is an "in-between" size, I think it is just they way that goes.

    I did go shopping last weekend, and was in the same boat, sizes, etc……I did make out rather well though….

    Don't ever give up…. Love to you!

    If I could shop for clothing with a blindfold I would be so much happier! Love the sign. Some very smart person put that up.

    I know what you mean about shopping and clothes. I think alot of times it just depends who makes them. One time this size will work and then another time a bigger size. I get so upset. Great post.

    Ugh. I'm "in-between" on the clothing issue, too. I need to buy clothes, but my body is not quite back to the post-pregnant shape I want it to be in. 🙂 What's a girl to do?… 🙂

    Yes, that sign was there just for you because you ARE a super star! (To everybody that matters!)
    Love you,
    Your in between friend,
