With every new year, there is a feeling of starting over, doing something better, or giving up a vice. Honesty, I’m not sure about a “resolution,” but I know that a goal for me in 2014 will be gaining back strength, endurance, and flexibility after my surgery happens in a couple of weeks. Not being able to go for long walks, climb stairwells without grimacing, or teach a dance class got me feeling down a bit, however, I am very hopeful for what is to come. Here’s to better days!
The ringing in of this new year started off with a bang (literally, Germans LOVE to set off BIG fireworks in the streets!) by partying it up at a “Great Gatsby” theme party! So, what’s a girl to do when her closet lacks 1920s inspiration? Go shopping, of course!
I was excited to see that H&M has become more stylish in the Plus department. Many retailers are finally getting on the bandwagon that we curvy girls want to wear hot, fashionable styles, and it’s about time! Here’s what I scored from H&M:
The Hubby and I had a fantastic time with friends. Lots of dancing, singing, and eating a delicious “Tres Leches” (Three Milks) cake, which is a tradition in the Latin culture. I would describe it as a very fancy Twinkie! Delicious!
Along with the popping of champagne, we were treated to Columbian cigars! I am not a smoker, but every once in a blue moon I like to have a cigar. Very 1920s, indeed.
Here’s to a prosperous new year full of love and laughter!
