olivia wilde

 Thrifted  wedges $3.99, Thrifted ribbed tank $3.99, thrifted skirt $3.99.  My necklace is from the flea yesterday for $5.00.  I think it is vintage and it is so lightweight and comfortable it is quickly becoming my favorite.

This is a big step for me showing my toes so don't stare at them too long or I will never show them again.  Had to get that out...I feel better.

We all have a lot going on in our everyday lives so I just want you to know that I appreciate you taking the time to read about my day and for commenting on the things that I write about.  Thank you!  Lots of love, Dawnxoxo

WHAT A DAY!  So many great things happened today!!!  I am linking up with Two birds for Inspiration Monday featuring Olivia Wilde.  You should join them every Monday and get inspired . These two sisters, Megan and Nora  have a great eye for style!!!   First thing is that I got a call back from  the job  that I applied for and now I don't have to sell hot dogs and freeze pops in front of my house this summer....yay! Tomorrow I am going to accept the offer and talk about the details.  I will let you know what it is as soon as I have the official title.  Next up, I got approved by my insurance to have a breast reduction....God knows I need it.  My new size  will be a large B to a small C when all is said and done.  I am currently a  G.  Don't gasp, you should try carrying these things around all Summer.  As soon as I begin to sweat, I want to tear my bra off and burn it.  I live in a muu muu at home because my shoulders, back, and neck hurt from wearing a bra around the house so I just throw on a baggy dress or large tshirt and deal with it that way.  Don't ever come to my house without a phone call to let me know you are dropping by because I will have to run and put a bra on before I answer the door.  A long time friend came over yesterday and she caught me without one and the look on her face said it all...I still laugh when I think about her expression and her comment.  She said this, " You need those things taken off" to put it bluntly. Easy for you to say Kathy, Mrs perfect breasts.  Then she proceeded to tell my husband that I needed a reduction as well.  Too funny.  I can talk about this so openly because it is a positive for me and it will change how I feel about myself  for the better and I won't have all of the physical pain I endure everyday.  I live on ibuprofen due to neck, back and sciatic nerve pain.  So keep your fingers crossed or say a prayer that all goes well for me.  I appreciate your good thoughts.

Dawn, I love the flower behind your ear. Olivia is jealous because you look cuter than her! Congrats on your job offer and your upcoming surgery. My best friend had breast reduction surgery and she was so glad she did for the same reasons you said. Debbie htttp://

OMG Dawn, G's?!? I was miffed when mine went from a full B to a full C after my first baby, so I can't even imagine what you go through with those things.'s to them being a thing of the past!!

I love your outfit as always...your posts always make me smile, especially the tales of the pups.

Congratulation on the new job and the upcoming breast reduction. I have a friend who have the same size as yours and yes, she's (still) in a lot of pain with neck and back ache so good on you taking this courageous step!

I'm so glad good fortune is smiling upon you!!! I can't wait to hear more about your job and the booboids are just too much to deal with doll! That's great that insurance is going to take care of the financial part and I'm sure Rob can be your nurse while you recover!
P.S.: I'm weird about my feet too! I do my own manis cause I don't like strangers touching them! HA!

Daisy said...

You look beautiful and that smile shows everything good that is coming your way. Good luck for your new job and for your operation.
I also don't like my toes and have just started wearing open shoes and sandals.
