New Hair, New Outfit, New Address?

I’ve been a busy little bee … I mean, after all, Debra does mean ‘worker bee’ in Hebrew, so it is only fitting I suppose.  And speaking of fitting, it was getting ridonkulous how many clothes I own that no longer fit {Insert Happy Dance Here}.  So I gave away a big pile. Truth be told, I had big motivation to do such.

My latest motivation to gut my closet is the fact that we are moving in October.   I’m quite excited about this move, but I wasn’t excited at the thought of filling up boxes with clothing that is too big.  

Meanwhile, school starts on Monday.  Not only does it start back for the kiddos, it starts for this mama as well.  Yes, I will be taking 13 credit hours.  This helps propel me towards my goal of certified personal trainer … among other things.  So I get to carry a full college load and pack up a house … all in short order.  And somehow I got bamboozled to be on two different PTA boards.  Yes, I’m that crazy.

Now with all of this going on, you know it would be horrible to end up completely BALD by pulling all of my hair out … thus … a haircut was seriously needed.  Pictures below.  You may also note, I am wearing a new dress in the pics.  I’m not big on dresses actually, but it was kind of fun to buy some new clothes and test out different styles.  But when all is said and done, I am probably most comfortable in my sneakers, jeans and a simple t-shirt.

Attention-Seeking Ninny?

I swear I’m not vain or an attention-seeking ninny posting selfies all over the internet … but I am; however, posting these pics here to prove a point.

These three photos were taken a day apart, as in today and yesterday. Same size body, different clothes, and I look different. The white shirt is actually a size XXL which is crazy because I’m wearing it with size 12 jeans, lol – and I am not an XXL anymore, but this is a ridiculously small shirt. However; the Spurs shirt is a Medium, from Wal-mart. The red tank is a Large. Your clothes can make a big difference, but also – do NOT get hung up on sizes and labels.  These photos were taken a day apart, and the shirts were purchased all within the last month.

My advice? Wear what actually fits your body and makes you feel good. I’m wearing the white New Orleans shirt today and have received three compliments, and one was from my pharmacist this morning, lol.


This is a size XXL shirt bought at a souvenir shirt shop in New Orleans, LA


This shirt is a Medium size shirt bought at Wal-mart.


This shirt is a size XL bought at Target.


Please note it also makes a difference in how you pose for the camera, how you stand, what kind of bra you are wearing (if you wear such), what the lighting is like, and a million other factors.  Point being, don’t make a lot of snap judgements based on images you see all over Facebook or the internet.  Chances are high, they may be photoshopped.  Meanwhile, let me state for the record, none of the pictures I take are ever photoshopped.  I’m a WYSIWYG girl (that’s an oldie tech term from the 90’s).  In other words, What you see is what you get.
