Straight A's in Home Ec

This dress is further proof that I could survive in any time period.  This is another dress from Mel in our swap that we are doing.  I felt like a big blue cupcake, but in a good way.  Wednesday night (when I wore this), Sam and I were going to cook stir fry.  Before he came over I was already getting it started and I had on my apron.  It was almost a little too much 1950's house wife for the both of us.  The great thing about this dress though, I felt pretty.  I felt like a lady.  I felt super-feminine.  And I liked it.

My weekend plans are pretty sparse this weekend.  But I have had a really full week and my house is a disaster, so I am ready to just have some down time.  Besides, it is supposed to start raining in Nashville any second, so I'll be fighting every urge to crawl under a blanket instead of getting my house cleaning on.

Finally, I've made a little mini commitment to start working out more.  I may have said this before, but I am super skinnyfat.  Meaning, from the looks of me you would think that I am healthy and active, but that's not true.  I'm all squishy :).  So here is to kicking my butt into gear!  However, I did a buns workout by the same woman who did "Buns of Steel" and oh my gosh.  I have had trouble walking the past two days because my buns and thighs are so sore.

Belt: Target

  8. You do indeed look like a lady. Oh and I'm so right there with ya on the Skinny Fat thing. I always call myself a Fat Skinny girl, meaning I'm "skinny" by most people's standards, but I have no muscle whatsoever, its all fat, squishy mushy and wobbly. I just outed myself!

  9. That dress is super cute. :) Fun and colorful, perfect for summer.
