weekend adventures

My weekend starts today…at 4:45 pm when I get off work. How fun is that? And I get to go home…well, not exactly. I’ll be little in the city (as we always call it), but close enough. I can’t wait. We all know how much I love California. I can taste Caspers already. I don’t know how I’m going to fit everything in (and by everything, I mean all of my favorite shopping and food stops), what with being my sister’s “slave” and attending this singles thing. I’m a little nervous about the latter, but I’m going to do my best to have a good time…in any case, I’m sure I will have some good stories, and I get to take a cruise on the bay, which I have never done before. I must admit I’m feeling some pressure, since I received an email from my sister telling me that she fully expected me to find my husband at this thing, which would be most inconvenient since I have sworn not to get married until I’m done with grad school. Although, I guess I could meet him. I don’t have to get married. Oh, the things that living in P-town is doing to my brain!

Wish me luck!

Oh, one more thing. I went shopping last night (you know, because I’m made of money and thought it would be a good idea…actually, I was stressed out and retail therapy is my family’s drug of choice when it comes to mental health, since it costs about the same as regualr therapy, but you get to come home with clothes/electronics/cosmetics/toys, rather than puffy eyes). I started at the GAP because I needed jeans (yes, needed). I had the a salesperson help me and grabbed a bunch of different styles in my size. I ended up getting a fabulous pair of long and lean jeans. The best part was when I put on the jeans the first time and came out to look in the big mirror, both of the employees standing there said, in unison, “You need a smaller size.” It was fabulous. So I grabbed the smaller size, tried them on and decided to go for it. I’m not sure how I’m feeling about wearing jeans that “fit”, since I’m kind of a fan of loose and baggy, but when I showed them to Sarah later, she said that they looked good (and I don’t think she’d lie to me). Woohoo!

  1. Woohoo! I can’t imagine being able to wear long & lean jeans! And a smaller size… can’t remember the last time THAT happened.Can you believe I’ve never been to SF? It’s a problem that needs to be rectified. Too bad you didn’t meet your man. Yet.

  2. I can’t believe you’re braving a singles cruise. I’m not sure if I could do it. You will have to report on every detail. I have lots of the long and lean jeans, too.

  3. i just bought new jeans in a smaller size too.i have several pairs of long and leans and they stretch out a bit after a few wear so you can have the best of both worlds – fitted jeans and then a bit looser

  4. You were probably coming as I was going from SF. I had a meeting on Thursday and did the plane commute thing. Hope you are having a really great time! I love that city.Hey, I know that “smaller jeans” experience. When I went jeans shopping few months ago after losing my weight, I had to keep having smaller jeans brought to me. And then, like you, I wasn’t convinced that they were OK — just felt like I should be wearing a bigger size even though everyone else thought the new smaller size looked great. What’s up with that anyway? Guess it takes awhile for body image to catch up to reality. Enjoy those new smaller jeans!

  5. A smaller size? That is great! What a wonderful feeling. In order to give balance to the universe I am going to put pressure on you to NOT find your future husband this weekend. Does that help? ;)I want to hear all about your little cruise. I have always wanted to do that….let me know how it goes.Talk to you soon!

  6. Congrats on the smaller jeans size!Woo Hoo! What a good feeling! So you are coming to visit my neck of the woods? Enjoy your visit here! Oh…and if you do meet your future husband, be sure to tell us all about him!

  7. Yay for smaller jeans! That’s so exciting. Also… have tons of fun this weekend. Hopefully you’ll make the most of it. Good luck on meeting your future husband… and if you find one for me too that’d be great ;)xoxo
