Day 25 No Spend August / Huge Temptations Today
Today has been hard for me, it always is when I go to a Shopping Mall. I can,t resist all the glittering lights, the mood music, the gorgeous clothes, the coffee shops and although it,s all set up to suck me into buying I still looooooooove it. I have got a brain in my head and I do know that they are trying to wash it, but shopping Malls can be my downfall, and so today was no different plus I had my Daughter with me, and she was determined that it was time for me to shop for my Mother-of -the -Bride,s dress. Now there are a couple of reasons why I did,nt want to do this.
1) It,s No spend August
2) I,m not happy with my weight and would like to lose a few pounds, before the Wedding.
3) I,m not sure if I want 1 outfit or 2
My Daughter is having a Church Wedding it,s a little non-denominational church that,s been erected in our local Wedding Gardens, and a celebrant is marrying them. And then after we are dispensing with the Wedding theme and having a Masquerade Ball in a marquee, in our large backyard. So there lies my quandry, do I arrive all traditional and Mother of the Bridey at the Masquerade Ball with my mask on, or do I arrive at the church in something appropriate for a Masquerade Ball without the mask of course?. So we hunted and hunted and I came away all frustrated no nearer to making a decision and $10.00 worse off after coffee and a toasted sandwich. I might be turning up at this Wedding in my Birthday suit, complete with mask of course.
