I'm leaving my comfort zone Thursday ....

My husband's company has a formal party tonite. The employees have a 9-5 meeting, with a catered lunch. Then they go to a nice restaurant and bar for dinner, where spouses are invited. So I have a new dress (had to buy one, losing 35 pounds and having a breast reduction means nothing in the closet fits anymroe!). I have pantyhose and cute new shoes. I dyed my hair today to cover the gray that was peeking through.

Tomorrow I am going to the MAC counter at Macy's for a makeover. You have to spend at least $50, but someone gave me a $25 Macy's gift card. I would never use it otherwise, so I'll use it tomorrow and only have to spend $25.

I am SO nervous! I am worried that the hip young makeup girl will think I'm a fat, not-so-hot mom. I am going to go to Macy's fully dressed, get made up, and then meet my husband for the party. I HOPE HOPE HOPE they don't make me look crazy!!

Serious, this is so far outside my comfort zone it's insane. I am a PTO kinda mom, a SAHM who sells on eBay. I am not a get dressed up and have a professional do my makeup kinda mom!

Gaahh.. I am nervous!

Go girl and get your party on!!

Don't worry about what other people think (easier said than done, I know). Just go out and enjoy an evening with your husband.

Have fun,

I hope it went well and that you had a wonderful time!!! Can't wait to hear how the night went!

It can be so difficult to step out into the 'real world' when you spend so much time taking care of everyone else on the home front and forgetting about your own needs, I can totally relate!
