Since the Nordstrom sale is still going on for a few more days I wanted to round up my favorite sandals from the sale. I’ve been wearing the same sandals from Zara for the past two summers and am definitely due for a new pair. The worst is debating all season long, only to buy them at the very end and only get to wear them for two weeks.
I completely forgot to tell my weight-gain story that I mentioned last week. It was when I was working in Florida at Disney world. There wasn’t a scale in my apartment, but I thought I was gaining weight just because of the way my clothes fit. So I did what any girl would do and called my sister. “Jenny, you just saw me at a wedding, did I look bigger? Be honest.” “Well, you could tell you weren’t on pom anymore.” Pom squad was my college’s dance team and being a member of it meant a required workout everyday. Based on her less than complimentary but honest response I went and bought a scale. I got home, stepped on it, and was horrified to see that I was TWENTY POUNDS heavier than what I had been three months ago.
Enter: panic mode. I flung open all my kitchen cabinets and began throwing away food – oreos, chex mix, chips, no wonder you’ve gained twenty pounds, Lauren. I decided to calm myself down and relax with a glass of wine and a bath. But sitting in the bathtub didn’t help. Look, Lauren, this wine, that’s another reason you’re 20 pounds heavier. I couldn’t handle it. I poured my wine out in the bathtub, pulled the drain and ran to the gym in the apartment complex. Ironically going the long way because I wasn’t exactly sure where it was – since it was my first time there’n all.
When my friend Justin got to my house he saw how distraught I was. “What’s wrong!?” he asked. “I’ve gained twenty pounds” I said. He looked down and asked “is this the scale you used?” “Yes,” I responded. He asked “is this where you weighed yourself?” “Yes.” He started laughing and moved the scale from the carpet to the kitchen tile. “Try it now” he suggested. And instantly, when I stepped on the scale, I was twenty pounds lighter.
Heck yes! Let’s get that unopened bag of oreos out from the top of the trash and sit on the couch to watch the show Prison Break!! haha
Have a wonderful and safe Memorial Day everyone and thanks for reading!
