Thanks ladies for the book series suggestions...we will look for them! I've tried steering her toward Junie B when looking for books at Target. Maybe she will have a change of heart with her newfound love of reading.

Today was my day to archive my recent work. One took 3 hours so I headed to the west side to a lingerie store for a proper fitting. I try to stay away from full cut bras because in my size they aren't too pretty. Well today I came to the realization that no other bras fit me well so I ended up the 2 full cups. And a sports bra that is the most comfortable ever. The plus is that they fit really well. yay bras. I didn't think I'd get the time to do this for another month.

Awww...yes, I cling to the demi cup with quite a bit of desperation! LOL I go through phases...comfy full cup for a while then I rebel and go back to demis.

Glad you found a comfy sports bra! I'm a 34DD and have been buying the Champions brand from Target in 38D. It's not perfect....

If you are willing to throw down (more than) a few bucks, this is the sport one i ended up with: http://www.wacoal-america.com/shop/wacoal-bras/sport/facet-size_32D/wacoal-sport-underwire-bra_855170.html?index=1&searchCategoryId=10070&totalResults=2&displayMarkdownsOnly=false it does not have the most support, but it is very good support and don't do anything high impact so it will be fine. I am once again a 32dd (i have about 10 lbs to lose which will probably put me back in a d but we will see if i actually lose it). the demis are what i prefer because they have more lift, but i seem to be between sizes on those or not full enough or something. it is always so frustrating. having a little old lady tugging at my boobs and bras to make sure everything was right helped a lot. then again, it was hard to tell her i wanted something sexy (though she figured it out an hooked me up).

Thanks Karen - I'll think about that one when I get a little closer to my goal weight. I'd hate to spend that kind of money then lose weight and have to buy new ones! I have three from Target plus a crappy one from Walmart right now.

What is everyone up to today? It is warm here...last day before it gets cold again. I took Addison to the city pool yesterday and may take both kids today. They have a cool play structure in a childrens pool (goes from 1.5-3 feet deep). Tomorrow Gabe has a birthday party at a bounce house place from 10-12:15...then I think we'll hit the library.

DH has to go to London next month. He finalizes the details on Monday. My mom is going to see if she can hang with the kids for a week so I can go. Keep your fingers crossed!

Pool? We are getting on and off lake effect snow. I'll take it over the rain. Tonight A, my mom and I are going to see Annie. It's put on by the local community theater. They seem to do one production a year. We tried to go last night (their website said that you can get tickets at the door) but it was sold out. So I bought the tickets for tonight.
