the grass IS greener

Don't let the little smile fool ya.
I wish I had something good to say, but these past two weeks have been just awful.
This YEAR has been awful. Probably one of the worst years ever for me.
I don't even know where to start and I don't really feel comfortable going into too much detail on here but I will say that my husband and I are having some "adulting" issues. Not adultery issues.... ADULTING.
You know, the act of being an adult?

Yeah, we're sucking at it.

I've been doing a lot of just sweeping thoughts and emotions under the rug and I'm feeling kind of numb. I know that sounds dangerous but in my case it's actually rather nice.
I love not feeling anything right now. 
I know I'm going to crack and that's ok. I need to.
It'll happen in due time but for now I can say things like, "Look at my pretty dress!" and mean it!

As usual, this dress came from Ross Dress for Less. A little more than I care to pay for a dress at about $12 but I was shopping with gift money from a very special friend. I'm not sure if she'd want her name mentioned but you know who you are!

I've been lusting after this style of dress for ages so when I saw it at Ross I just couldn't resist. It's a 2X is which should be plenty big but for some reason this dress didn't allow for much room in bust. Too lazy to go exchange it for a bigger size I just forced it over the girls and took made sure to breathe very carefully so I didn't bust any seams. 

The details of the dress are quite lovely. It's crinkle rayon(?) with machine embroidery and little tassels. Seriously one of my fave dresses now. 

Sorry for the poopoo phone photos. It was pretty cloudy and had just stopped raining. I didn't want to wrestle with a real camera in those conditions.

Sooo.... how are things with you?
Got into any good arguments lately?


  1. That sucks.

    At least you have a fun dress to take your mind off things.

    I have a feeling I'm going to go into a funk now that my husband is on the plane back to Hong Kong. : ( He won't be home again till Dec.

    I feel a thrifting day coming on...


  2. It must be in the air - we're having issues lately, too. I'm blaming both the Cubs for winning the World Series and the eclipse throwing the country out of whack.
    That's a great dress! There's a Ross somewhere sround here - my son shops there a lot. Looks like I need to check it out. Your jewelry is always so great.

  3. Lookin' good, Hollie :)

    I'm in my 50s and I still have "adulting" issues. Life is just hard. It's just hard to be human, isn't it? I'm jealous of my cats :)

  4. Gah! being a grown-up is no fun!
    That's a fantastic dress regardless of the boob issues and the jewellery is stunning.
    Hooray for great friends. xxx

  5. Adulting fucking sucks most of the time. I've had some major shitty things happen to me this year and I'm about done being quiet about it. Feel free to vent or message if u need to!!!!!! I am so sorry ur having troubles babe :(

  6. I'd take adulting issues anytime over adultery:P And yes....agree with the others. I have some days when I actually still feel like a child. I honestly think I'm maturing "backwards" so you're not alone, Hollie!
    PS And love this dress on you!
