Chubby Girl In the World Gets Engaged!!!

After two years of being the most awesome boyfriend ever Terick Hines proposed to Stefanie Gomez on December 25, 2012. This is the story and hilarity of how it happened.

On Christmas eve Terick aka "Big" walked into our fabulously messy apartment ( thanks to the shin dig I three the night before) with a very large gift box. "What is that?" I exclaimed. "It's a present." was all he said. So I kept pestering him, actually I attempted to tickle him to death, then he finally said "it's something fuzzy and blue" which stopped me in my tracks "Fuzzy and blue?" last time he'd said that I got earrings from the Shane company, was it earrings again? I decided to shake the box as much as  I could, I smelled it, weighed it my hands no clue.

Christmas morning came, since we'd be waking up at 4am every day to get him to work by 5, we couldn't help getting up early and I got up at 3 that day. I jumped on him said "Merry Christmas" and dragged him out of bed. He ran into the office we have in our apartment and proceeded to dress in a suit and tie. "Why are you getting dressed like that?" I asked. "Because I have to play Santa and this is the only red thing I have." I didn't really question it as Terick says and does weird spontenous things all the time so I just let it go, the tie should have been a clue though. For the records I was wearing sheep pajamas. I waited for him in the living room and when he finally came out I handed him the present I knew he'd like best the lightsaber I'd gotten him. See my twitter pics for the reaction. After I'd let him open all his I looked at the big box longingly, was it a new computer? Or the boots I'd been lusting after on Simplybe? He grinned handed me the giant box and I ripped through the wrapping paper, two boxes stacked on top of each other, I ripped into the wrapping of the top box and pulled out.......blue fuzzy hangers. I smiled looked at him and tried not to cry, "Thank you honey, I-I needed more hangers." He couldn't help laughing at my "present" face so then I moved on to the next box hoping to God it wasn't socks. This box was smaller, and had over two balls of newspaper wrapped in giftwrapped inside. As I waded through all the wrapping paper balls, I saw it, beautifully wrapped in maroon textured giftwrap what I knew to be a Shane company box, "it is earrings! I thought) I opened the gift wrap but before I could open the box, he took it from me, got down on one knee and said: "I've loved you since the moment I saw you. I knew you were the one from the first time you smiled, I've always been drawn to you. You're the most beautiful woman I've ever seen, will you please, please be my wife." I burst out into tears and hugged him, I almost forgot to say yes. I don't think we stopped hugging each other for an hour.

I never thought I would be so incredibly happy, so joyously in love with someone. Before Terick I have never known what it was like to be completely and totally loved, to be confident in the other persons affections, loyalty and fidelity. It is one of the most liberating feelings in the world to know even if you don't understand why, that you are loved completely and unconditionally. To all those who have it cherish it, guard it and tend it well, to those of you who are still seeking it, don't worry it will find you.

Winter is coming...

So my fiance and I are obsessed with Game of Thrones. We love Danny, hate Jofferey and yes I read the f@uking books! So winter is here, I've been snowed in for three days here in Wilsonville,OR with one of the largest snow storms to hit the area since 1996. So in order to keep from getting cabin fever I've decided to share with you lovlies the pieces which I'm currently coveting from Igigi and a new source I found called Navbi (much more expensive, think Nordstroms for plus sizes).  I also wanted to make you aware (as if you didn't know) how awesome some modcloth stuff is. I just purchased the travel day skirt on sale for 14.99, we do love a bargain.

Things drool worthy from Igigi:


Zola Dress $118 I imagine mysels as Reese witherspoon in this dress, cute, quirky and loveable.
garnet dress in black, perfect for office or cocktails. I imagine the model as a Bond girl, with a thigh holster and .22 tucked inside her dress.
Cadence Dress $118.
I think I could take over the wor…

Shout out to local businesses!- Please support local and homegrown plus size friendly business in your area! This is the Portland edition

If you're in Portland Metro area do not miss out on going to two shops one in Northwest called Fat Fancy which has killer vintage and new styles for the plus size retro princesses out there and in the Southeast there is Savvy Plus run by the beautiful and awesome Gaya (I'm not sure if I spelled that right! Someone please correct me if I'm wrong).

Fat Fancy- great for both men and women and the funky little shop is right in the heart of downtown Portland so it's a great destination if you're on the Northwest side of town and wanna do some shopping. My favorite piece I got there is the amazing graphic crop top I use over camis. The girls who work here are amazing at making you feel comfortable and helping you find exactly what you're looking for.

Savvy-Plus has been and will continue to be my first destination when shopping for casual and career wear. I went in yesterday and was so excited about all the new things, the inventory is constantly changing so go in at…

Overcoming the "I'm too fat for this."

I have not been posting lately due to many reasons, I'm back in school, I'm working full time again and I've been stuck in a depressive cycle in which I overeat, condemn myself for being a glutton tell myself I'll never amount to anything and then overeat again to make myself feel better. Wow, that sound really crazy when I say it like that. But so many women I know have told me the go through exactly the same thing. We lie awake at night thinking about all the terrible things we did to our bodies that day. I had McDonalds and Taco Bell all in the same day; word to the wise don't do this.

Tomorrow I have to go out networking, normally this is a chance for me to increase our connections or strengthen ones we already have and hopefully broker us more deals in the process but really it's about relationship building and frankly I've been pretty terrible at it lately. Why has my performance decreased so drastically? Because I don't think I deserve to be ther…
