What I Wore- Brunch!

Friday, May 26, 2017

I don't have many friends here. I miss my great friends in Texas tremendously!! I miss the things we did together- running, beach trips, church, pool time, AND getting together every Thursday afternoon for snacks and wine.

For years I along with two great friends got together every Thursday afternoon to eat and share a bottle of wine! We often joked that we did it to "talk about our daughters." - which many times we did. But we have also talked, laughed and cried about what was going on in our lives on many occasions! Those Thursday afternoons together never meant more to me than they did after R passed away! That simple "normal" activity helped me heal in so many ways! I miss my friends soooo much!!

There is just something about getting together with other women to talk about life in general that is so enjoyable! So I was very excited when I was invited to a brunch for women who attend classes at the local Y. I have come to really enjoy seeing the women that I have gotten to know here at the classes.  We all have a  goal of being healthy so that is a great commonality to share!

I luckily had time to go home after a class and get cleaned up before the brunch!  Here is what I wore:

Blouse- Shein, Jeans- H&M (similar)

I am 10 pounds heavier this spring than I was last spring! I guess I hibernated a little too much this winter. But I am really watching my diet and have committed to correctly train for a half marathon that I'd like to run in September so I hope to get the weight off!! My goal at this stage in life is to be healthy- this extra weight does not make me feel healthy!!

It was really fun to see these women that I've gotten to know away from our exercise class. The women that I've met here are all very accomplished. Most are from various places all over the globe which adds a unique dynamic to knowing them. It is interesting to see the different opinions about Texas when they find out where I'm from. (some are not very kind) But, I'm proud to be from Texas!! I just try to always show that great Texas kindness and friendliness no matter what has been said to me!!
