Spouse Speak and a new old blouse


Some of you expressed a 'burning' desire to see my new ONE DOLLAR blouse.... OOPS! I tried to take a picture in the bathroom mirror... Then  i moved to the full length in the bedroom and here you are..... I am down from 220 to 166... woo hoo. yes I said my weight, and my age is 73. Shocking, right? saying these things to the world will help with my accountability...


I came home with two blouses, paid one dollar each for them. Walked out with this blouse on and Bob said
"I like it, I like it a lot" and You look great in it.
I came out in the other one that i bought to match capris I have and he said
"well, it matches the pants really well"
that blouse went in the donate pile on the bed.
Plus it jogged a memory. My son Dan is turning 51 in a few days. When he was 13, I came out dressed for some event, and he said
"mom, are you wearing THAT dress?"
it was new, I wore it out the door and never put it on again.

  Can I get two thumbs up? or even just one?

You look so good and I love the blouse!

Ann said...

Yes, you get TWO thumbs up. You look fantastic and the blouse is great too. I've had things on in the past that someone has said they didn't like (usually my daughter) but if I liked it I kept right on wearing it.

You look great. It is so special when a spouse gives a compliment about an article of clothes.

Linda said...

Thumbs up! Both thumbs! You look terrific!
I wore a green on green outfit last Thursday and I made the mistake of asking Louis Dean how I looked. He said, “I don’t like it.” WHAT?? I wore it anyway because I was running late and my bedroom is a mess of clothes piled everywhere....but I felt self conscious all day. I’m keeping it though be ause I like it!

I will give you 2 thumbs up and the rest of my fingers too.
Awesome Miss Sandra!!
I really like that blouse and you look terrific.
So I will brag a little bit too.
I'm 74 and my starting weight was 234...got on the scale this morning and it said 161.4 !!
Proud and so proud of you!
This is quite a journey we are on...
Let's keep on keeping on...

Definitely two thumbs up! You look wonderful. :)

I'm chuckling over Bob's and Dan's remarks, only because I'd have done the same thing! Thank goodness for those who love us enough to tell (us) the truth ... even when the delivery is wonky. Bob scores for the giggles!

Two thumbs up from me. I have been trying to lose five kilos for months but I'm obviously not trying hard enough. You do look fabulous and the blouse is nice too. My Bill wouldn't even notice if I had on something new.
