I have always lived life as a curvy girl. Adjusting my outfits to fit all those shapes in nice and tight. :) Becoming a mommy was a whole new experience for me. My whole body changed! I have had this body for 27 good ol' years! It was working great for me! My hips, butt, boobs, waist, feet, and even hair had changed! I had to start all over with adjusting everything. I had this realization that altered my world. Why do I need to adjust?
I decided then and there that I was fine the way I was. I love my curves and I felt like there was no need to hide them. I was now waving my curvy curve flag proudly. I started looking at clothes differently. Buying things that were a little out of I my comfort zone because I needed to shake things up. It was a bonus that all the pieces that I bought were under $10! I was also desperate not to lose myself and who I was. It is so hard when you are a mom 100% of the time. I needed the retail therapy as well. I loved that I had all the fun of shopping without any of the guilt of how much I was spending. I think that there is a way to dress for your age, dress for your body type, and not look like a mom. :)
I am on the road to figuring that out and by reading this blog and being on our site, you are joining me on an awesome journey.

And (of course) my adorable little man!
