who flys over JUST for shopping? Can we Talk?

Friday, August 23, 2019

*************** can we talk? Is it just me? ***************

Tomorrow my daughter is flying in to go dress shopping for the mother of the bride and get a tux for her brother, my son.
Truth: I do NOT own any formal dresses.
I wear pants 100% of the time.

but she wants to do this and I was like okay.

She flys in on Friday two hours away, hotel, sees us on Saturday, for shopping for a dress for me and a tux for my son for the upcoming wedding in October .

Truth: I hate dress shopping but I would never tell her because I would not want to hurt her feelings.... she is flying here after all JUST to go shopping. and she flys back Sunday morning.

it amazes me how people have money/credit like that.. just can fly over for a WEEKEND.
Do you know how much that cost???? I do. a LOT.
but she wants to do this and I said okay.

Mind you she is INSISTING on paying for EVERYTHING emoticon
I was like wait... we are not poor baby, we can pay.
She insisted... no mom, let me do this. (she just got promoted to Director)
shrugs... okayyyy.

just kinda bothered me inside.... like I am grown, I can buy a dress and tux.

but in REALITY... I haven't been dress shopping in yearssssssssssss.

but maybe I should be gracious and grateful and just be happy she is doing this
because maybe for her... she just wants to do this.

I am energetic in my photo because I am a "morning person"
but: by 9am or 10am... my feet are hurting, body tired, muscles sore all over for real.
Can't take a nap because I have to go to the post office lol.

    I hate clothes shopping but especially dresses. I only wear them if I absolutely have too. I think your daughter wants to spoil you a little bit. Sometimes it just feels good to do something nice for your parents. emoticon
