Holiday Party Sparkle

Posted on: December 16, 2012

Before I get into my outfit and the holiday party… I’d like to make you smile.  How can you not smile with this photo:

get-attachmentThis is Chloe our four year old mini-lop.  The children decided to dress the bunny up for Christmas.  The rabbit is so much fun and really a perfect pet.  She recognizes my husband’s voice when he comes in and goes crazy as he spoils her with raisins and is the one to feed her.  Since the kids are in bed a lot when he gets home, it’s a good substitute. I could write a lot about this delightful rabbit. but I have a holiday dress to reveal!

IMG_1014I originally planned to go bare legged, but changed my mind at the last moment.  I received so many compliments on my weight loss and how great I looked.  My favorite moment was when the owner’s wife who has lost weight reminded me how far we have come from where we were at last year’s party.  Last year I cried over feeling fat and finding something to wear.

IMG_1019This is my husband, my biggest supporter and favorite photographer.  We have never been a couple who dresses to match,but I love him in blue to match his eyes.

IMG_1001This is the view from the balcony of  our hotel, when we first checked in.  I love getting ready in a hotel room with no kids or pets to contend with .

A quiet moment before getting ready for the party…

It was a really great night.  I always love the company events and seeing everyone relaxing and having fun.  They all work so hard to make this company a success .  There is always funny presentations and jokes mixed in with prayers and touching heartfelt moments.

I may add some other photos as I didn’t take my camera to the event.but they had a photographer and will have access to those pictures soon. There is actually a picture of my husband I together…

Gratitude:  I am grateful for the holiday seasons and loving moments.  I am grateful for time with my husband.  I am grateful that I can leave my kids overnight and know they are fine.  I am grateful for a chance to celebrate where I am in my weight loss journey and what I have accomplished so far.

You look amazing! Such a pretty party dress!

Congratulations on your weight loss.

I love your outfit! -Marci @ Stone Cottage Adventures

I saw your lovely dress at Patti’s Visible Monday and had to come over and tell you how radiant you look. I had a large weight loss myself about 6 years ago (50 lbs) and I totally understand how good it feels to get back in control and feel better about yourself. Well done!

Thank you! yes getting back to me is invigorating!

You look smashing, and you and your husband make a wonderful pair. Thanks for sharing your pretty look with Visible Monday!

Beautiful article, and beautiful couple. You too look like you are having a lot of fun together. What a lovely picture (the last one).

Thank you and we did have a wonderful evening!

I absolutely love your outfit! The sparkled dress, the detail on the jacket, the polka dot tights: all perfect! Congrats on your weight loss!
