A few months ago I splurged a bit on a boudoir-pic photo package, with plans to schedule the shoot after I was at my 'goal weight'. (I lost 33 pounds!) So a couple of weeks ago I found myself in a rented suite~it was lovely and I felt like moving in~with a few outfit changes and some props. And my photographer,Melissa Knowles. Melissa photographed our "Images for a Cure" pics a year or so ago.
It was such a fun afternoon and I love how the pics turned out! Here's a teaser~more to come when I receive my disc!

Last October, at the Westcoast Women's Show, I tried on a couple of corsets at 'Felix and Kitty'. I still had a few pounds to lose, so didn't buy one. Last week I went to the 'Taboo' show, and decided to get this fabulous one! Love the colors! For the first time in my life I have cleavage! Once it's on, it makes your waist tiny, tiny, altho you can't really see it in this photo. It's also reversible~the other side is denim, for those times that call for a more casual corset!

He came in the room just as I finished
tidying up. I looked at him and felt so
much emotion rush thru me! Throwing
my arms around him, I gave him a big
hug and kiss. "Are you playing with me?"
he asked. "No", I said, shaking my head,
"I love you, Mr. P."
And that's when I woke up. We broke up 5 months ago. Why am I dreaming about him now? What does it all mean?

Goodbye 2011! I'm so ready to move on to a new year and new plans. But first, some of last year's accomplishments should be shared and celebrated!
~In April, Mini got a job at one of the 'Big-Box' stores! She's done really well and is on management's radar. November brought a promotion to a different position and a pay raise. It also brought a new, 4 AM start time, which we are slowly adjusting to.
~Last January I set out to lose 30 pounds, thru a change in life-style habits. Christmas Day I weighed in 33 pounds lighter and several sizes smaller than I was at the start of the year! It's amazing and a huge accomplishment. The reward is looking and feeling so much better. Being able to wear cute and stylish clothes that fit. No more 'fat-sucking garments' needed to be able to fit into a dress! And I found a love of power-walking in the process! Bonus after bonus!
Yesterday Mini and I found ourselves on a walk and ended up at a coffee shop nearby. Just a casual and low-key start to the year. We shared soup and a grilled 4-cheese sandwich that was so, so good! And snapped a few pics to remember the day. One of my plans for this year~to take more pictures. To keep a better record of the year, both with photos and writing.
And my wish for the New Year? That we all have a year filled with love, laughter and good health.
Happy New Year!
