Trophy Wife Dress
Anyway, I am so happy to be done shopping. I scored some really awesome clothes at great prices and in smaller sizes! I’ve lost 35 pounds since January and I haven’t seen size 6 jeans since High School, so it was very rewarding to zip some up at Old Navy! I bought my trophy wife dress and completed every outfit for my long (hopefully romantic and non-awkward) weekend in Chicago. Right now I am in between laundry loads and it’s close to midnight and I am typing to stay awake. We’re “waking up” (well at least my in-laws are, I will be up already) at 2am to get to LAX by 4am for our 6am flight.
I am pretty nervous thinking about putting all these outfits on because that means that my husband will soon be seeing me in them. I know he will think I’m beautiful in whatever I am wearing, but I really want to feel incredibly sexy, sweet, and cute. I want it all to be perfect – skin, makeup, hair, scent. I have been dressing only for myself the past few months and haven’t felt the need to impress anyone, but I want to impress my husband. I am so proud of him, and I want to feel like I’m something to be proud of, too. I know I am, but I want him to feel like he’s showing me off. Forgive me if that sounds vain and old-fashioned…but I love to feel delighted in by him.
Here’s a piece of advice for y’all who are preparing for your trip to Great Lakes for your sailor’s graduation: don’t wait to shop for graduation till the last weekend and don’t wait to do laundry till the day before!
