Comas & Stretchy Maxis

My mother threw a big Polish party last night.  I'm having PTSD just thinking about it.

For those of you who have never had the pleasure of going to one, it includes big Polish plates of food, generously laden with every sort of meat your heart would ever even think of desiring. It's like a butchers wet dream out on the table.  Coupled with this are big, Polish words urging you to take seconds, thirds, and fifths, with plates being simultaneously passed to you not giving you a choice in between.  And this is all capped off with you sprawled on the carpet, not being able to summon the energy to undo your pants, willing the big, Polish tummy ache to leave you be and go away.

Gluttony at its finest, folks.

This was last night and I'm still comatose. I'm about to request an IV. So I leave you tonight with some snaps of my Sunday outfit (with my stretchiest waist band) and the winner of the Cheerfully Charmed giveaway:

Erin, from Babes in Thriftland.  Yay! I'll be e-mailing you to claim your prize.
Thanks for playing guys :)

  3. Your Polish feast sounds like my ukrainian boyfriend's Christmas Dinner. I love it and hate it all at the same time.

    I love that military jacket. And I also sometimes wear H&M head-to-toe without realizing it.

  9. hahaha sounds similar to indian culture, with the whole take 2nds, 3rds, etc... food is such a great part of culture!

    i love that parka!! saw it at h&m and debated about buying it..but i already have an army green one, and figured i should stick with this whole streamlining of the closet thing. its not really working tho :/

  16. My mom's side of the family is Polish. She talked about all the big Polish parties they had when she was young (she grew up in Chicago). I've never actually been to one of those parties myself... might be worth it, even with the PTSD ;)
