Of being a princess



I am losing weight! I am slowly starting to pull out clothing articles from my fall/winter wardrobe and they feel loose! I have not weighed myself in ages. I just eat right and get as much exercise as possible. I stopped checking my weight because it stressed me out and made me feel bad about myself. I decided that a number on the scale shouldn't be used to determine my own self worth, instead I focus on what is on the inside and take care of myself.

The realization that my clothing is starting to feel less tight on me, made me feel great about myself, in fact, I was walking with an extra spring in my step and with an air of self confidence yesterday morning. I layered my tights with my favorite fishnets and I combined them with my old but favorite pair of heels. I dropped my son off at school (which has been going really well this days, I guess my reward system is working) and I was walking towards my car. I heard a little girl shout "Mommy, she is so pretty. She looks like a princess" I look over to see who the little girl was referring to and I was shocked to see she was pointing at me! I look like a princess? Me? That made my day! I come home from work and after supper, I gave Philip these Star Wars cookies for dessert. They come in shapes of all the Star Wars characters. Philip shared the princess Leia ones with me because I remind him of her. What a really cool compliment! What a great little boy I have! Wow! Two compliments in one day!

Without further adieu, here is my princess outfit. Now excuse me, the Royal Chariot awaits to escort me to the ball!


Playing with the filters on the new app I got....wheeeeee!Im tired, my hair is uncombed and I got caught in the rain but I feel great!



Today is the final day of my quote challenge. I was originally tagged by "Just Keep Brains" who also did the same challenge on her blog. Basically, I am to find a quote then tag three bloggers so they can do the same on their blogs! Today, I am going to quote Shakespeare. I was inspired by a post my friend Trevor put up on Facebook which involved this very quote. I am quite fond of Hamlet.
 “Doubt thou the stars are fire,
  Doubt that the sun doth move,
  Doubt truth to be a liar,
  But never doubt I love."


I have pretty much ran out of ideas on who I could tag and I am not sure everyone would want to participate either so if you do, feel free to tag yourself! I am taking the lazy route today! I deserve it, after all, I am a princess!

  1. Aw, I love how sweet little kids can be before society teaches them to be judgemental! You are a princess, though!

  3. Of course you're a princess to that little girl! You don't wear boring jeans and sweaters like all the other moms, and a child has not been tainted by our stupid adult prejudices and judgements yet. Rock on!

    1. LOL thanks! I also don't wear yoga pants. What is it with mom's and yoga pants? I do have a pair but that is my "I am bumming around the house/doing gardening/running to the corner store pants because I got too lazy to get dressed that day" clothes! Maybe they are stay at home mom's? I wonder if I would wear them too if I didn't work? Hmmm...probably not

  4. Looking good Sylvie. Congrats on the weight loss. A little girl recently noticed me also. She pointed and said look mommy a witch! She's a witch! Hmm...perhaps she is right! I should have cackled. :D

  5. Oh, you do look lovely in that outfit! ;)
    I got the same compliment from a little girl once, I was wearing a flilly lace blouse with a satin skirt and heels, my hair was curly and I was walking around with a laser cut fan...I was so happy about that one compliment, that I still remember it. ^^

  7. Have the princess tales gotten spookier since I was a kid? I think it's neat the old cliches are dead..

  8. You do look like a princess ... a Dark Fairy Biker Princess - the very best kind! That little girl knew what she was talking about. :)

  9. Three huge cheers for being - and owning - the princess that you are, dear Sylvie! Sometimes "rain hair" is a great thing. A little humidity can add body and here I think it gives your locks a great tasseled look - akin to the "beachy waves" magazines are always so keen on.

    Have an awesome weekend,
    ♥ Jessica
