Plus Size Clothing

I am a Plus Size Woman.  I am not necessarily HAPPY about being a plus size woman but none the less I am. 

Today, one of my favorite blogs was hosting a giveaway for a free shirt from a new clothing company.  When I entered to win I looked at the company's website and saw that the largest size they have is a 10/12 XL - (yes, XL). And that got me to thinking!

I have always had a hard time finding clothing to fit, especially something more than a moo moo.  I do shop at Lane Bryant and Torrid but sometimes you want to wear oh I don't know maybe a shirt from a new company that is fresh and fun.  I see small cute women wearing outfits and t-shirts that I would LOVE to wear.  But, NOOOOO the companies who make the clothing don't want to sell to the more average sized women in America.

I just don't understand, how much more could it really cost to make clothes to fit more sizes!!!!!

Broken Nose vs. Heaven

While talking to my 10year old daughter about why it would be better to get hit in the face with the piece of plastic dashboard covering her air bag vs. not having said air bag we had the following conversation:

"Mom, wouldn't it be safer to not have the air bag behind that plastic?"
"No, it will be better to get hit with the plastic than say, die."
"But, I might break my nose."
"Again, broken nose - better than death"
"But, I would be ugly with a broken nose"
"You would look worse dead and you can still play and have fun with a broken nose"
"I can still play an have fun in Heaven. When my spirit gets there, there are basketball courts, soccer, everything that we have that is fun here"
- How do you argue with that???????
