What I Wore and Weight Loss Wednesday...........


Well, here I am - it's Wednesday again - and I'm still not sure about the linky party thing - but I'm gonna give it my best shot! I am a little hesitant about putting photos of myself out "there" for people other than my friends and family to see, but here goes..................

Please join me, and many others, over at The Pleated Poppy for What I Wore Wednesday.

Friday we were supposed to go to a Lady A concert, but due to the weather it was cancelled. This is the second Lady A concert that we've had tickets to but didn't get to see. Thank goodness this one was rescheduled, but if I don't get to see them on the rescheduled date - I'm taking that as a sign and marking it off my concert bucket list!! Lady A - I'll catch you the radio!!

Not really needing an "excuse" to shop, I did feel I needed an "excuse" to purchase this jacket because it's not something I would wear everyday and we really don't get out much.  The jacket wasn't expensive at all, but so cute and looked like it would be the perfect Lady A concert attire!!  I purchased it and didn't want to wear it anywhere before I got to wear it to the concert, so it remained hidden in the back of my closet (what this old thing - I've had it for ages..............c'mon girls, please tell me you do that too!) for at least 6 weeks - then low and behold  - the concert was cancelled.  I was bummed!!  Really bummed for several reasons! I really wanted to get out of the house!! I needed to get out of the house!! I really wanted to see Lady A!! And I really, really, really wanted to wear my cute new jacket. The only one of those I could do anything about - was wear my cute jacket!! So that's what I did - I got dressed in the clothes I had planned to wear to the concert! I was all dressed up and no where to go, but my spirits were lifted and I felt good! I wore these clothes long enough for The Man to see me, make fun of me for getting dressed up, and take a few photos for this post.

And now, for the weight loss part of the post...............I didn't lose any weight this week - but I also didn't gain any, which is a miracle!! Being snowed in for four days and having the Super Bowl all in one week, makes me think I can eat anything I want, anytime I want!  Thank goodness that week is over!!

So, here's to a healthier week!!  Thanks for stopping by the farmhouse!!
