I think that I'm getting bigger. Not fatter (well maybe a little) just bigger in general. My desk at work feels like it's getting smaller and smaller. My legs keep falling asleep because I have to fold them up to fit underneath. I kept hitting my head while getting in and out of my car. I heard a young child whisper "Sasquatch" to her mother and then started to cry. 

And then today in the mail I got a postcard notifying me that a local retailer in my area will be carrying larger shoe sizes for women. It's official -- I'm a giant. And apparently everyone knows it and I'm just now figuring it out. It's just like that movie The Truman Show, except I'm not Jim Carey and there aren't camera's following me. Or are there...

Paranoia aside, can we officially start a count down now? 3 more outfits and 1 more day until my shopping ban is lifted. I'm already fake shopping online. I've got shopping carts full all over the internet. Truth is, I never stopped. (except for at work, because that's wrong, right...?)

  6. cute dress. I love how you've worn it with the top underneath, thats a good idea because strapless tops never stay up on me.

    I'm excited for you to be able to go shopping again :D! I'm going shopping tomorrow, yay.

  11. I love how you make this work with the tank, and that dress is perfection on you. And I am sorry we forgot to tell you you are becoming a giant.

  12. I don't have a shopping ban (although I should) and I too have carts full all over the internet. It's bad, it's just so easy to click "place order".

  14. you look adorable! so glad that your shopping ban is almost over. gosh, you have so much willpower.
    and the story about your desk reminded me of that episode of 'the office' when jim keeps steadily adding weight to dwight's phone so he doesn't notice it. over time he just gets used to having to pick up the extra weight of the phone and when jim takes all the stuff out of the phone, dwight hits himself in the face when he picks it up to answer it. so funny.

  18. I laughed out loud at the title of your post, and was then thrilled that the post was actually about getting bigger/taller.

    And I am SERIOUSLY loving this outfit. Three to go!

  19. I love the idea of throwing a strapless dress over a plain tank and cinching it with a belt. So perfect for spring. You just keep amazing me with what you're pulling out of your 30 in 30 challenge! :)

  21. Amber -- I'm 5'9". So tall-ish but not freakishly tall.

    PS is it weird that I'm commenting on my own post? This feels unnatural.

  22. OMg 5'9!!! That is TALL!I am only 5'6 and I thought I was okay.

    LOl I post on my on posts all the time, natural I am ;)

  23. Now I feel very short. I'm barely 5'3" xD
    I always wonder how tall bloggers are, it's hard to tell from just pictures. Plus most of them wear heels. For instance, I've always wondered how tall Rhiannon of Liebemarlene is.

    I love your outfit. Congrats on almost being done! I could never have done it. And thank you again for my daily laugh. ;D

    For such appealing backless dresses, Bye Bra breast stickers are the most
    suitable breast shaper. Do you know it? http://byebra.com
