What a night!!

Our Historical Society hosted the Chamber of Commerce mixer last night. Since I'm an officer, I felt it was my duty to go. I don't enjoy going into groups where I don't know people. I guess the shy part of me rears it's little head when I go into those types of situations.

I didn't eat dinner because I knew there would be finger food there plus desserts and today was my weigh in at WW, so I didn't want to over due the food. Then I wanted to look nice, because I didn't think anyone would be showing up in tee shirts and jeans. When I went into my closet, I had a horrible time trying to find something! I realized that 95% of my clothes are very casual. When I found something that I really liked and tried it on, low and behold it was so big that the shoulder seams came about 3 inches off of my shoulders!! LOL Of course dh said it looked very nice, but I couldn't wear that! Turns out it was a 3x that used to be tight on me. hehe Finally I found a long black dress hanging there. When I tried it on, it actually fit me! Joy filled my soul! As it turned out, I could have gone in my comfortable jeans and a nice shirt! Who knew? lol My friend Deb said that I did a good job of mingling, which made me feel good because I wanted the society to come over as a friendly bunch of people (needy tho we are).

I did eat the food that was there including a piece of homemade cake that was delicious. When I went in for my WI (weigh in) this morning, I had lost another 1.2#'s!! I couldn't believe it!

So that's how my night went. Did I mention that I received a lot of compliments, that I don't know how to deal with?

I agree with Shelly, ans she will be the first to tell you I don't take compliments very well either, comes from years of being told I am worthless. But I am getting better.

I'd love to see the black dress, sounds really nice.

Maryann, I copied the award picture and clicked on the "saved as" link and saved it in a folder on my compouter then uploaded it to my blog from there. I didn't know any other way to do that.
