so my husband's best friend and ex wing-man (i say ex cause both of them are married now) is having his wedding reception this new year's eve. they eloped last year, then he deployed for a year and returned a few weeks ago. anyway, the party is "cocktail attire". we have all the babysitting arrangements, the only problem is me. cocktail dresses are thinner material and i don't even have to try one on to know i'll look like a fat sack of potatoes in it. but, i went to the mall today by myself with our 3 kids and decided to search. i scanned each store and i truly didnt like a thing i saw. but i only checked out department stores, going to white & black or cache is not in our budget. i wouldnt feel comfortable in a dress like that, 3 kids later and i have a fat ass & thighs, and the fat mommy pouch on my belly. my new year's rez is to work on my mid-section but til then im better off wearing jeans!
so anyway, he came home on his lunch break and we had just gotten back from the mall. i said i didnt find anything and im probably not going to go if i dont find a dress. and he snapped back with "well im going regardless!" okay.. jeez.. i never said you can't go. i just said i don't want to go! im fine with buying some damn sparklers and fireworks and giving the kids a show! id love to spend NYE with him but not in a cocktail dress. and new year's day we're going to a football game together just the 2 of us anyway.
i guess he's mad now that i dont want to go. what would you do in this situation, if you had a less than perfect body? suck it up and feel like a fat whale all night, or stay home?
