Just had to tell everyone....Because of Tasha's newest picture (the tree dance) I kept starring at it thinking there was just something about that pitcure I couln't put my finger on. Then it hit me! I had decided how much I really liked the color Turqoise, because of her top she is wearing in that picture. Since I basically have a nuetral wardrobe, I decided today that I would go buy myself something (to be kind to myself!) but that it had to be Turqoise just to make it fun.

Well, I am happy to say that I found the PERFECT little summer top (it even came with a cute necklace) and it is the prettiest shade of Turqoise I have ever seen!! My dear Hubby was patient enough to wait two hours for me to pick it out!! And the best part is I found a pair of Chocolate pants to go with it.

Now, here is the finale.....I had a $10.00 gift card that came in the mail and shopped on the 90% off rack at Kohl's, so my total cost for my new $50.00 outfit was (drum roll please!!!).....$1.06 can you believe it?!! My husband actually thought it was $106.00, so I had to ask the clerk twice if she actually said $1.06 (I love looking at the receipt where it says "you saved $49.00 today"!!

So now I came home not only feeling good about the bargain but I was able to forget about the Cancer for 2 whole hours!! However I did discover that even though I only gained 8 pounds, I no longer fit into my usual size!! Time to consider a diet. Anyone care to join me? We can weigh in once a week!! Hope everyone has a happy 4th!!! :) Pammy

PS) Thanks Tasha for the picture or I would never had broaden my horizons!!

    Weigh in--ummm...
    I would consider this AFTER I lost some pounds! I have gained, 20 since chemo finished.

    Tasha, though you are an inspiration, I am sorry to say that I would never be moved to the point of wearing turquoise such as Pammy has recently done. I would look like an off-color traffic light with my reddish tone in my skin, an almost green (turquoise) shirt, and reddish brown hair. All I would need would be something amber to finish off my outfit.

    But, good for you Pammy--a $1.06, you can't beat that price!

    As for widening my horizons, the most I have done in that respect is buy some black and white checked tennies and wore them with my black suits at work when my neuropathy was so bad I could barely walk. I bet I was a sight for sore eyes (or maybe I was the one that caused the sore eyes-dunno).

    Yes.. I questioned that
    Yes.. I questioned that picture of Tasha in the turquois shirt... her actions with that tree... I warned her that there were probably laws against that sort of thing...

    But you know Tasha she only got excited about the policemen coming and making her assume the position....

    I did tell her with her luck they would only throw money at

    Good for you "retail therapy"... that sounds like a treat... and with "savings" to boot... you my friend are one lucky girl... you must put it on and take a picture... then post... need to "see" it...

    Love & Hugs

    Pammy I think I am the only
    Pammy I think I am the only human being who is gaining weight on chemo. Every time I go in to the doctors office I've gained another 2 lbs. So yeah, I'm game for the BC DIET.

    For Retail Therapy...
    You get an A+ for excellent work, Pammy!

    Kind regards, Susan

    P.S.: I think it was before you joined the site... I published several Tutorials for Retail Therapy (much to the chagrin of Joe/Aortus).
