Welcome! My name is Mrs.G and I started this blog so people could share in my mis-adventures in wedding planning. I married my southern gentleman on September 6th, 2009. Throughout our courtship I became enamored with everything southern and desperately want to become a steel magnolia.

Oh the possibilities

My bestie Crystal, over at The Story of Us said that she couldn't wait to go shopping during my weight loss. Up until this point I guess I hadn't thought about it. I am trying to break myself of saying "diet" because this is more than that. This is me trying to better myself. But being so enthralled in articles, nutrition labels, and calorie counters I didn't even think about revamping my wardrobe.

I don't want to get ahead of myself. My mantra is "take this day by day". I am a person that needs instant gratification. That is why I think I didn't succeed in the past, if the weight didn't just melt away I fell in to a sort of diet depression and would ruin whatever progress I would have made.

I did, for a little while last night, let myself think about it. How I would walk past Lane Bryant and bid them a gracious farewell and say a warm welcome to stores that I hadn't stepped foot in, in years. I love fashion. You would never guess it if you saw me or my closet, I have been dressing a little ho hum these days. Over size sweater, worn blue jeans and hiking boots almost every day since it got cold. It is amazing how much this can effect you, I know the clothes on my back don't make me ME, but think about how much you express with your clothing. It is like a tattoo and a piercing, but ever changing. Not to mention it is just FUN!!!! Fashion is fun and I have been missing out. I know it is me holding myself back but I don't want to miss out anymore. I want to take my style to the next level and not be afraid to try those leggings on, or feel comfortable in sleeveless.

I think one of my bigger triumphs will be to go in to clothing stores where I have always been on the outside looking in, like Ralphie looking at his Red Ryder B B gun, and walk through the doors with my head held high and actually find something I like and have it fit...maybe even a little to big :)
