Binging & Purging


Seriously, it's been a long time since I updated here. WHY, you wonder???? I wouldn't even know where to start. LOTS of things have been going on. I got sick. I was sick for 2 weeks. Was taking 5 medications at one time! Then I was diagnosed with migraines - and you guessed it - more meds! Ugh. That part of life is finally beginning to calm down, only about twice a week I have a headache now.

The "Binging" I want to tell you about.........I have been doing some serious shopping. Of course it's the holiday season and that sounds like a good enough excuse, yes? :-) Before you ask, of COURSE some of the items I purchased are gifts. And the others, they're for ME! HA. Probably the worst thing about it, I've managed to do most of this without leaving my pink laptop! I've purchased from Lilly Pulitzer, Sephora, Clinique, Lorac Cosmetics, Ebay, TJ Maxx (in person!), Belk (in person!). I might be leaving something out but if so I can't even remember, oops.

Also in the "binging" category..........THANKSGIVING. Did you eat as much as I did? We had the "traditional" thanksgiving feast - turkey, ham, dressing, green beans, sweet potatoes, hash brown casserole, corn, rolls, sweet tea. And the desserts - pecan pie (which isn't MY thing but DH and Dad indulged enough for me too!), lemon cake, rum cake (wish I had a piece of that one right now!), cupcakes, etc. A few days of that food and I felt like the stuffed turkey! HA. This week I've been trying hard to get back on a "normal" eating program. No junk food, yogurt and cereal for breakfast, dinner leftovers, salad or a Lean Cuisine for lunch, and a healthy dinner.

In my "purging" process......I have a constant battle with my CLOSET. Me thinks this is possibly related to binging #1 which is shopping, Duh. Anyway, I have been cleaning out and listing some items on Ebay. I have to free up some room around here. I have two closets and they're bursting with "stuff". I'm having to get "creative" about how to store things. If you know someone looking for good stuff, please refer them to my blog and tell them to check my Ebay listings in the bottom right corner. Help a girl out! :-)

I hope you're having a nice holiday season. We've been under a coastal flood warning and have had storms the past 2 days. I'm ready for the sun to come out again!

Happy Holidays!


  1. Hi there! Just left something for you on my blog!

  2. OM gosh I can't believe you were sick for 2 weeks. That stinks. I know I'm always trying to stay on top of my closet. What a task! xoxo


  3. Hope you're all better now! Merry Christmas!
