Happy Birthday :)

It's my little brother's birthday today. A big 22. He's not so little anymore! His girlfriend has arranged a surprise dinner at a swish restaurant tonite with cake and sparklers and all the fancy stuff. I'm going to be strong and say NO to the cake.

It's going to be a challenging weekend; I'm off to the races tomorrow. The whole of the town is going. I only decided on Wednesday... If I found something to wear, I'd go; if I didn't, I'd sit at home (which is in the same suburb - literally 200m from the race track) and sulk.

I found THE.MOST.GORGEOUS outfit. I'm sooo excited. I acutally found three, nearly bought two of them, then sensible Selina kicked in and I bought the one. I really wouldn't get the wear out of two.

Last night I went shopping with my sister as she had the same drama. As we left her hubby said "Spend what you want hun". I looked at him; he innocently said "what?"... He has no idea what us to can get up to when we shop. She tried on three gorgeous dresses, couldn't decide, so bought them all! Oh I love shopping with her :) I walked away with another one too... it was a HUGE bargain I couldn't say no to.

So it's going to be a fun weekend of glamming it up. I'm going to behave as best I can... the scales are doing nice things to me lately. I'm seeing numbers that I haven't seen for a very long time. My comparison progress pics aren't all that exciting, but I've had 3 different people tell me over the last week that I've trimmed up; so I'm taking that and running. Fast.

And as a side note - the outfit I bought, and all the dresses I tried on were... size 6!
(I'm positive sizes really are getting bigger, but it still feels good just to say that) ;)
