NEW (.)(.) ANNIVERSARY...

ELLO, ELLO....TIS ME, DAWN.  HOW ARE YOU DARLINGS?  I know, I know, it's been a long time since I've blogged but today is my one year anniversary post op booby reduction and I have been celebrating all day.  I began by thanking God for the day  and then I dressed up and met my gal pal, thrifting buddy, Betsy, at the Goodwill outlet.  Boy, I am in trouble with that place...it's phenomenal.  I could spend hours, and I do.  Don't be jealous, just pack your bags and head straight to NJ.  It is worth the trip...bring a friend, plenty for all.  I have cart envy while I'm there, I look in everybody's cart.  I'm usually the one with the great cart but man, I am stalking people and their carts...seriously.  I followed a couple around hoping that they would put a few of their things back but they didn't.  Smart of them...cause I was ready. 


Anyway, hope you are all well.  I am still plugging away at the gym with my personal trainer.  I have lowered my body fat by about 3% and my BMI is now in a normal range.  I needed to lower my body fat, big time.  It was off the charts and I felt like a bowl of Jello...watch it wiggle, see it jiggle.  You get my drift. 


Tying bows is not my area of expertise...

Found this vintage, mod, dress at Goodwill a while ago as I am still sticking to the vintage only rule unless I can't live without something or if it's super cheap.  I'm talking like 25 cents.  The outlet weighs everything and it's .99cents a pound, so a shirt is like really cheap.  One year ago I was a size 38 G and today I am a 36/38 C.  I am thankful for the having less boobage and glad to have met my one year anniversary of a major surgery that turned my world upside down for a bit.  You can read about it here and here  and here if you want to see my before boobs in a bathing suit.   Love to all and thank you for dropping in.   dawn xo

Yayyy so glad to see you back! Congrats on the one year! You look fabulous, as always. That dress was a GREAT find. I'm thinking that NJ might be a thrifting road trip in the future....

You look wonderful. I love the contrasting tights with that fabulous dress.

I can't believe it's already been a year with the new boobs. I think they've served you well though. You should keep them. ;-)

I had cart envy today. Reeeeally bad. A vintage bread box. I missed out.

Wow has it really been a year? We have been blogger buddies longer than that :) I wish I had known about the Goodwill outlet when I was in NJ in the fall but I am heading to Avalon, NJ in August, maybe it's close by? Love the neon green and fuschia colour combo!

Hiya my petal!! Wow, you look marvellous...adore that dress and I like the pink tights with it too :)))) Perfect!! What a bargain. I always look in other's carts as well, and wish they would put stuff back, so I can swipe it! haha! When I find something good & even if I won't buy it, I carry it around for a good hiding place and then come back for it when I can, hahahaha! I know this annoys other shoppers, but I'm just smarter than them is all ;) Adore the outfit, so colourful :)) I hope you have a great day doll, you are look great!! xoxo

I've been away a while too. Posted today and thought I'd poke around and see what everybody has been up to. Happy boobversary! I remember how painful it was for you but how happy you were. Take care my friend. I think there is one of those GW outlets in Indianapolis. Maybe this summer I can grab my Mom and off we'll go! I was told by somebody to always wear gloves.
