|This is the dress that doesn't fit now :(|
We're both sick so we decided to keep the evening low key. (Sorry dancing friends!) The initial plan was dinner and a movie. We looked up movie times and a place to eat. We got to the place to eat and it was closed for a private party. So we figured we'd try to go to the earlier showing of the movie and get dinner after. I thought we had time before the movie started so we went to Target to get Starbucks to tie us over until after the movie and so that I could get a smaller belt (I'm running out of holes on the belts I have and they're starting to get too big). Then we headed to the theater. We got to the movie and found out it had started five minutes before we got there. Scrapped the movie. We both remembered that we have always wanted to try Benihana, so we decided to eat there instead. I called and got us a reservation for an hour later. We decided to kill time at the mall. ( I swear this is going somewhere!)
I remembered that I had massive amounts of coupons for The Limited and I wanted to see if I was, indeed, down to a size 12. This has been a goal in the back of my mind for awhile and I wear their clothes often so it's a good gauge of where I'm at. I went in and bee-lined for a pair of size 12 jeans. My coupons were for a bunch of other items too so I looked around and grabbed a few tops to try on too.
Anyway, we made it to Benihana where we both had a lovely dinner complete with acrobatic food preparation. Everyone seemed to be getting ice cream with their dinner and I was a little bummed when I found out that it wasn't included. We'd done such a good job budgeting our meal so that we didn't end up with an outrageous bill - they can get expensive! So afterward we decided to split a slice of cheesecake at the cheesecake factory where our money would stretch a little further. I figured this was a great way to grow right out of the jeans I had just bought haha!
