Great Find, Good Food, & Goodbye

Last night I popped into Dillard's, I have a Gala to go to Friday night and it is cocktail attire. I have one thing in my closet that I feel like I can wear and really feel comfortable in. I have a few other "cocktail" attire dresses, but they don't exactly fit like they used to - SO depressing!! I don't need to spend a lot and buy a dress that I'm just going to wear once or twice, but I thought what the heck and looked around. I found one dress that I just fell in love with. It was much prettier in person!! And it was marked down to $45 from $180 - what a steal!!!

I felt like it was a hair too tight (mainly on my bootay) but nothing that spanks wouldn't fix, ha ha! I contemplated and as much as I hated not to get it, I didn't. I have to admit though, I've still been thinking about it like crazy and though geeze, for that price I should just go get it and work my butt off so I can wear it and feel good in it, So we'll see . . .

As I was just about to leave Dillard's empty handed, I was making my way out and trotted on by the shoe section. I just couldn't help myself. I did a brief skimming of the inventory then saw a huge wrack of shoes that were marked down, so I made my way over for a quick look. And boy am I SO glad I did because I found gold!!!! I found a $100 pair of BCBG sequin, black heels marked down to $26!!! YES, score!! So of course I got them!! I also felt like it was a sign that I need to wear the dress I have, which also has black sequins (sounds like a lot of sequins I know, but I tried it on and it works perfect together!!)

Just look at these beauties!!!



After trying on clothes and feeling depressed I knew I needed to fix something healthy for dinner. On the menu: Salmon, sauteed veggies and then for hubby, mashed potatoes.



I was good and only had TWO bites of mashed potatoes. My plate consisted of only salmon and veggies! It was good!!!

Hate to end this on a sad note, but I just read that 80's movie star Corey Haim has passed away due to a drug overdose.

So sad. It seems that he had been troubled over the years and had taken the wrong path. So sad though!! I just wish Hollywood could get a grip on the drug abuse. I say Hollywood, but it's not just Hollywood, it's the world. But it is such a poor example to see and know that celebs are abusing drugs. As sad as this is, maybe it will wake someone up out there and make them realize they don't want to end up like Corey Haim. I pray for his family and friends, and as I said before - that somehow through this sad outcome, something good can come from it and someone out there will get help before it's too late!

Oh and one last thing - I read today that years ago he date Victoria Beckham and Alyssa Milano - interesting, never knew that.

Good for you on the healthy meal!! Yes, sad about Corey. Not surprised though. When will the madness end? Sorry, but a lot of these celeb doctors contribute to this.
