Winter Essential

      Although wearing fun, cozy sweaters is great for #1 winter essential has been this red and black buffalo plaid top.  It has been, by far, the most warn item in my closet this season. I can't get enough of it!

    It was a fairly warm day today so I paired it with some short booties and the turquoise bracelets for a pop of color. 

     I wore this outfit to the *gulp* surgeon's office today.  Lately, I have gradually lost the ability to eat ANYTHING without severe pain in my right side.  It is looking like my gallbladder is the prime suspect. It will most likely have to come out soon so I can eat again without pain.  Yeah, remember a few posts ago when I was complaining about my clothes not fitting?  Not a problem anymore (but also not a fun way to lose weight)!

I bought this ring as a "happy" for myself (combining a 25% coupon and my vault points for a killer discount of course!).  Gave me something to look forward to in the mail while not feeling so hot.
