Back to school is creeping up on us. I imagine the frenzy of back to school shopping is underway in some places. Luckily we still have a few weeks up here.
If you need a new bra I have an extra special giveaway on my plus size shopping blog that will have 15 women wearing a Playtex's 18 Hour bra very soon. It ends on August 31.
Be sure to check out this week's article on extending your circle of friends.
Have a great weekend!

"Mr Perfect isn’t this flawless prince who we dream of. He is a man who makes us happy (for most of the time, anyway), he makes us feel blessed to have him in our lives even with his flaws. He accepts us for who we are and never ever dreams of causing us any unhappiness. You think your relationship will last because he shows just as much commitment, hard work, respect and love as you do. That’s not a fairy tale dream, that’s wanting to be with someone who is good to you, worthy of you and brings joy to your life" From Weesha (Weesha's World)
