So I totally didn't get everything on my list done last night. Oh bother. I did get a crapton of laundry done and all of my dresses and a lot of the others articles of clothing that were strewn about hung up and/or put away. The bedroom is looking better. It's a process. I'll get there.
Today's dress is not super flattering with my extra pounds and it was kind of chilly today so I paired it with a short sleeved shirt underneath to hide some more skin. I also wore a cardigan. I think I may have added some bulk to the dress with the undershirt but I wore my coat most of the day so whatevs.
I woke up a little earlier today but I was dragging my feet a lot, very tired lady. I worked and then drove to King of Prussia to meet up with my oldest friend, Jen. We had dinner at the Cheesecake Factory to celebrate her birthday and then we shopped and chatted it up. It was lots of fun. The evening certainly revolved around eyebrows as we visited Sephora for an eyebrow filler solution for her and then I got my eyebrows threaded at one of those weird mall stands. We both couldn't stop staring at ourselves in mirrors. Hers were way darker than she's used to and mine are much skinnier but we are both happy, just getting used to it. Eyebrow threading is really weird. I probably should not have just trusted some crazy lady in the mall with my eyebrows but it all happened so fast. At first we were walking by the stand with a don't bother me attitude but then I realized it was a threading stand and stopped for a second to look at it. Before I knew it I was in the chair holding onto my eyelid and forehead, stretching the skin for a stranger to vigorously rub thread together and remove a ton of my eyebrow hairs. It hurts but not more than waxing. It's definitely weird to be on display in the mall though. I think I'd do it again. I also think this blog has way too many accounts of hair removal!
I came home and watched the Phillies lose the series, so my friend Chad will be happy to not have to read anything about baseball in this blog anymore. Good for him. I am exhausted so until tomorrow's dress, goodnight.
