What’s too big?

Do you ever feel like your breast aren’t going to stop growing? I do! A few years ago (I think 2009) I had a breast reduction because I felt like I was getting too huge for one girl. I was very happy after I had it done, they were amazing!  Crazy size difference!
NYC a few weeks after
It was about a month after my reduction I started to look forward to getting new bras, new bras! I found the perfect bras at Jacob Lingerie. So perfect!! Until now… I was recommended to try this bra by Le Mystere No. 9 Lolita Strapless everyone told me it was a perfect bra, you’ll love it the second you get it on. I decided to go into Nordstrom’s to try it on and I’m sure glad I did! The beloved bra wasn’t all that I expected so after talking to a couple of the sales associates I decided to try on a couple other bras and finally came across a bra by Wacoal. I had never heard of them but was surprised how comfortable this bra was, oh my god and the support! The Wocoal Red Carpet Convertible Strapless Bra was beyond any bra I currently owned.


The comfort of the Wocoal is unbelievable I feel like I have nothing on, one amazing perk is you can’t see if through any top. It was decided I needed both black & nude for my collection! After speaking with a lot of women with a fully bust I’ve noticed a trend that they can’t find the right size or the bra that fits them. My recommendation to you – when shopping for a bra don’t be shy ask for help! Ask the manager to help fit you, this is her job (I bet she knows what she is doing!). It’s a great feeling when you’re wearing the correct bra for your body. 

Our week in Texas

Whooaa we made it to Dallas!! Our flight was on time and Gryphen slept for most of it! The amazing gate agent left the seat beside me empty so Joanne could sit with us. I was able to watch the rest of the movie I had started on my previous flight the day before which was great! Getting through the airport was smooth and we were greeted with open arms by Devon’s Auntie Bobbie who had been wondering what was taking us to long to get there (not very easy lugging two heavy suitcases off the plane (lesson learned to check bags on verified flights). We were off like a herd of turtles!
Our tired girl after a long morning!

We had a really great time with Devon’s family, lots & lots of shopping and food! I’m surprised I didn’t gain 20lbs while we were there!!

a nice dinner in
Since Gryphen is an only child she doesn’t get much of a chance to play with other kids unless she’s with her cousins. Oh man did she love playing with her cousin all week! I think Rebecca will have a friend for life after this week.
Who couldn’t go for a late breakfast at iHop! All smiles 🙂

Taking a break from shopping at Cheddars to refuel!
Gryphen strolling around the house in her undies & bandy!
 Sadly our trip was coming to an end and Gryphen decided to help Gramma pack.
We had such a great time while we were in Texas! We were able to spend some time with part of the family we don’t get to see too often and they finally were able to meet Gryphen! As happy as Fin & I were to get home to see Daddy, I think Fin was pretty sad she had to leave her cousin Rebecca.
Hopefully we’ll be able to go back soon for another visit!!!

Are we there yet?

March 6th at 3:15pm Gryphen & I boarded a plane for Toronto! Toronto was to be the first stop on our trip. We arrived early thanks to the winds in our favour, got off the plane and headed for the exit to meet up with Devon’s Auntie Karen. When we stepped outside Karen was waiting ready for us to toss our luggage in the trunk and cuddle Fin. Once we packed up the venza we were on our way! Gryphen & her Great Auntie Karen danced around the living room while we waited for her Gramma!


Our flight to Texas was early the next morning so Fin & I headed to bed a bit early (11pm) and after a short 15 minutes of tossing & turning Fin was asleep!
