Thank You Very Much! The Clothes Buying Edition!

It's Free Therapy Day!! That's right, it's Thursday, which means it's Thank You Very Much day. The way it works is that you post your little peeves that may have affected you in some way during the week and say, Thank You Very Much in a less than slightly sarcastic tone.

If you visited my blog within the last 2 days you'll know that I had gone shopping for an outfit for my 40th Birthday Party tomorrow. And thus this post was born. Thank You Very Much!

  • To all manufacturer of shoes, Thank You VERY Much for stopping at size 9.5 when making half sizes. Never mind the few of us who are actually a 10.5 but can't EVER find that size ANYWHERE on a store shelf!
  • To the few of you who thought that yesterday's blingy red tank top was indeed a dress, you might want to go back and look at the picture once again and remember that I am 6 foot tall, Thank you very much. LOL! (It did make me laugh though and you know I love ya!)
  • To all the store clerks who had the perfect opportunity to tell me that I DIDN'T look anywhere near 40, but didn't, that hurt, Thank You Very Much. LOL! (Actually one young gal did comment about me not looking 40 and I'll be shopping there again. LOL!)

  • To EVERY store in the Mall and all around town, Where is all the red? I wasn't looking for purple or pink or puke mustard. I wanted red and there wasn't a whole lot to choose from, Thank You Very Much.
  • To the store clerk who pulled a mini skirt off the rack and actually thought I'd consider wearing it, I appreciate your enthusiasm but, NO WAY, not even in my wildest dreams (okay MAYBE in my wildest dreams), Thank you very much!
  • To those people who make that thing that you painfully slide over your head and SQUEEZE over you upper body that's supposed to smooth out your, um, *cough*, not so flattering midsection, but in return make you feel like a stuffed sausage! I secretly love you, Thank You Very Much!
Once again I feel soooo much better. You really should try this. It works. LOL!
If you decide to, head on over to Kmama's and link up!
Have a fabulous day my sweet friends!

(Don't forget about Friday Funnies tomorrow!)


  1. LOL Those made me laugh!! Now I need to go and check out this tank top that might be a dress. ;-)

    Thanks for linking up!

  2. Did you try on some Spanx? I love those things too. They are my muffin tops best friend. LOL
    I love when people tell me how young I look...the other day at some church function a guy I hadn't seen in years asked me if I was 28? I almost died laughing.
    I hate it when I can't find the item I am looking for in the right size or color. Frustrating.
    LOL on the dress.

  3. I think nearly all of us can relate to this post...especially about the stuffed sausage feeling!!! I'm sure very few of us actually do have a flattering midsection, so we squeeze into one of those horrible "shape wear" items...and we wonder how gals tolerated corsets for all those years!!

    My dear daughter has the opposite shoe problem as you...she wears a 5, but most of the time, size 6 is the smallest size she can find. We hear ya!!!! It IS most frustrating when you don't fit into that range of sizes they call "average."

    Have a wonderful day.


  4. Love these! Sounds like you had a fun day shopping anyway. I miss most of this excitement because I do 90% of my clothes shopping on-line (having the opposite issue from you in that I am only 5'1" and clothing manufacturers seem to think all women are at LEAST 5'4".....).

    And a VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU my friend!

    Maria :)

  5. Oh Kimmy Kimmy Kimmy! How I would have loved to shop with you :)

    I will be sporting my "Sausage wear" this weekend as we are going to an outdoor wedding ARGH! IN THIS HEAT???? I MAY BURST LOL ;)

    You definitely don't look anywhere NEAR 40!! You are gorgeous my friend ~ inside and out !! Thank you very much!

    I love ya

  6. Ooops, yes, I thought that was a dress! LOL! Sowwy!

  7. LOL my friend, LOL!! It would be fun to shop with you! I was looking everywhere for some cute red flip-flops and could not find 1 pair - what's up with that??

    Big if-I-could-find-something-that-would-squeeze-away-50-pounds-I-would-buy-stock-in-it size hugs to you!! So excited to hear about your fun party - I'm certain it will be quite blogworthy! :) Hugs!!!

  8. To Kim who is a tall fashionista not looking at all 40...and is a barrel of monkey laughs....of which I wish I could be like but can't ever be like especially tallish....THANK You very much!


I really appreciate the time you take to leave a comment. Thank you!
