Yesterday a friend told me about a spot in a free preK program at a nearby public school for the upcoming year.  I had already signed up Princess Sparkles at her current preschool and wasn't sure what the best choice was.  I just wanted to make sure I wasn't doing it because it was free, you know, kind of like buying a dress that doesn't quite fit right because it's on clearance at Loehmanns from $250 to $10?  After much consideration, I decided it would be good for Princess Sparkles (though not so good for my schedule... but isn't that what parenting is all about?).

Tonight my in-laws are babysitting the girls so Camouflage and I can go out.  We're supposed to meet his co-workers to have ALL-YOU-CAN-EAT sushi.  The problem with these ALL-YOU-CAN-EAT meals is I always over eat.  And if I don't, I feel like I'm not really getting my money's worth.  Somehow they're always sort of a lose-lose situation. Nevertheless, I still do them because, well, they're a good deal.  And why pay the same price for less sushi?

I realized that I've worn everything in my collection of 30 pieces except for one top (the navy rose top!) so I figured I better wear it.  I debated whether to pair it with white jeans or blue jeans.  I decided to go with the blue jeans (only because they're looser, and I'm going to need all the room I can get for my ALL-YOU-CAN-EAT binge session). Since it's cold (and because I always LOVE the look when they do it on the mannequins at F21), I decided to wear my clog sandals with socks.

Anyway, I'm thinking they're going to have to roll me out of the restaurant, because let's face it, I have very little self control... Not only am I going to stuff as much as I can into this belly of mine (though may be sorry later when my clothes no longer fit comfortably) but I'm also that girl, the one who DOES buy the dress on the clearance rack because come on, it was $250 and now it's only $10!!!

I knew there was a good reason to keep those low waist jeans (even though one risks the plumber's view when crouching)! Happy eating! That blu top really looks great. Can't believe you waited so long to wear it.

Cute blog! Hahah that happened to me too, where I wore almost everything and then forgot one piece! Good luck with the rest of 30 x 30!

Eli said...

Your little gal should do fine in the pre pre k. If anything it will give you a little more time at home and let her socialize with other kids, only good can come of this :)
