    Wedding gown/tuxedo shopping

    I wore a 34W tall, so I definitely had to go with a company that did custom cuts.

    What did you serve at your wedding?

    We had a mid afternoon wedding, so a "cake and punch" reception. I ordered a couple of delicious artisan baker cakes and had coffee, tea, cocoa, sodas, juices, and a fruit platter, cheese and cracker platter, and vegetable tray for those who needed more of a mid-afternoon snack. It was very...

    What did you buy today?

    So, I've had a chance to use my new chair. A Lane Home Furnishings 4501P-19 Power Rocker Recliner. And yep, it's a good big people friendly recliner. It's rated for 500 pounds. I'm just under 400 pounds and I feel very supported and secure in it. It doesn't creak, doesn't wiggle, doesn't shift...

    What did you buy today?

    The main thing I bought over the weekend was a new comfy chair. A Lane "Gladiator" Comfort King rocker/recliner (power model). It hasn't been delivered yet, but I will review it once I've had it a bit. It's rated for 500 pounds, extra wide and extra long, and has a motorized reclining mechanism...

    How did you respond when health issues arose?

    Another factor I only touched briefly on in my previous response is how being at a higher weight makes it more difficult to diagnose, treat, and manage some health problems. I'm not losing weight to be more "healthy" per se, it's more for physical comfort, mobility improvement, and greater...

    The annoying behaviour of Ghosting

    I ghost people if I find out they are toxic in some way. No conflict at all about it. Experience has taught me that it is simply not possible to remove them from my life without just going abruptly, completely, and permanently no-contact. If I don't just cut them off cold, they want an...

    What are you having for breakfast

    The past few days I've been having whole grain toast with lots of butter, and lots of blackberry all-fruit spread for breakfast. I've been craving fruit in general lately for some reason, especially tart fruit like berries and citrus.

    Natural Remedies and Homeopathic Suggestions

    My rheumatologist recommends tart cherry juice as an anti-inflammatory supplement. She says that studies she's read along with patients' personal experiences shows that it's beneficial. And pretty much no risk or side effects. I haven't decided if it works, but I drink it every day because it's...

    What did you buy today?

    And the 1920s perfume smells lovely. It has a bit of "old perfume mustiness" at first, but it is very old and wasn't an airtight sealed bottle. I'm happy with it. It's a little bit different from newer formulas because of age, deterioration, and old technology and raw materials sources. But...

    BBW’s and the Fashion Industry

    I used to love the fashion aspect of the bashes. I shopped from vendors, worked for a vendor, modeled for vendors, and was a vendor myself at the last event I went to.

    What did you buy today?

    My 1930s-1950s fragrances actually all smell very good. I mostly collect vintage fragrances (through the 1990s) and very few have gone off or started to smell unpleasant. A lot of people say that fragrances "expire", but that's not really accurate. Depending on how they're stored (away from...

    What did you buy today?

    A 90-ish year old bottle of Coty L'origan perfume (bottle style dates from the 1920s to early 30s). I bid on it on impulse on Ebay not expecting to win, because I always bid pretty low, but did actually win this one. It should arrive by the end of next week, so I'm looking forward to seeing what...

    We didn't do much baking this year, but made some cookies today. Chocolate cookies with peppermint bark baking chips.

    What did you buy today?

    I ordered some henna powder to color my hair. I haven't done it in several months and it needs a couple of applications to get the new growth to match the length.

    Recent Picture of You Part XI !

    I got a shaggy haircut this afternoon. I wore it long and straight for so many years, I just wanted something new and different for a change.

    What did you buy today?

    I did a little bit of Black Friday shopping online. The big thing I got was a little pocket sized digital camcorder for vlogging. I have an older compact digital camcorder I bought around 4-5 years ago but it's getting glitchy and is way out of warranty. I wanted to replace it and found a good...

    Best & Worse Job You've Ever Had?

    Worst: Sewing machine, microwave, and vacuum cleaner salesperson at a Sears store. Why? The pay was straight commission, so I had lots of anxiety about earning enough every week to pay my bills. And there was a lot of drama and backstabbing. Even in management and HR. I wouldn't give up a...

    Thanksgiving Day Menu. Whatcha cookin'

    It's just my husband and I this year. The supermarket had a special on ready to bake Cajun style stuffed boneless chickens. Buy the chicken, get a package of dirty rice dressing free. So we got a collard greens stuffed seasoned chicken, the dirty rice dressing, and will fix green beans with it...
