No dress yet, but I had some delicious chicken nuggets.

I went out today to look for a dress to wear to an upcoming wedding. Honestly, I wasn't in the mood to try on clothes but I had the time and opportunity. Plus, Hubs is off again today, so he could pick up daughter from school.

Isn't that just the way it is? You have the time and even a little money and you cannot find a single thing on the rack?

Must be one of Murphy's Laws.

I didn't even find one thing I wanted to try on. Most of the semi-formal dresses were sleeveless. Not going there. The others I found were a little too dressy or shiny. I want to look like I am at the wedding not like I am in the wedding.

My husband is going to read this and think it is much ado about nothing. He just doesn't get it. He's a man and real men don't worry about clothes. They worry about bills and flat tires and hair loss.

I ended my shopping trip with a stop at Chick-Fil-A because no mall visit is complete without it. After eating fried nuggets and fries, I was less than inspired to try on clothes.

However, I did buy Spanx- my generations version of the girdle. My grandmother would be proud. A little Lycra is good for everybody.

Especially when it is covering chicken nuggets and waffle fries.

I think you need to keep some Chik Fil A nuggets as a back-up at ALL times.

Coming out of lurkville to tell you I heart my spanx. Nothing says loving like taking off the 10lb buldge with a little lycra.

Do those spanx things work? And do they come in a neck to ankles style?

I've never purchased any kind of girdle. I've been curious about whether or not they really work. I may have to try one soon!

Do you know what? I can't find Spanx around here. Not kidding. So I've opted for heavy-duty rubber maid underwear.

I was worried you might not find something, because that is the way it always goes. I've honestly thought that if I ever do stumble across a fancier type dress that I liked, I would go ahead and buy it, even if I had no place to wear it. I would just keep it in my closet for the inevitable time I would need a dress and be unable to find one.

I love me some Chik-fil-A and I love me some Spanx. That you bought them both at the same trip to the mall is just awesome.
