Skinny legs and all.

I have never been one to obsess over my weight and appearance, I’m to preoccupied with the joys of motherhood now for such silliness. As long as I feel strong and healthy I am happy. I rarely wear makeup and when it comes to style, I am all about function over fashion. Sure I like to think I still have a little funk left in me, but really I kind of dress like a mom now. Lately I have found myself feeling a little like a sac of potatoes. I am happy to say I have not succumbed to the saggy overall look, but with all the weight I have lost post-baby my pants have all become quite baggy.

When it comes to shopping I have more fun finding treasures for Frances. There are few opportunities for me to get out on my own to even try clothes on and I feel so impractical and guilty spending money on myself. In the back of my mind I am always thinking it would be so nice to find a new pair of blue jeans that actually fit. Well this past Tuesday presented an opportunity. My wonderful mother had some time to take Frances and I over to the thrift shop. She was also sweet enough to sit in the car while Frances was sleeping so that I could find myself some new (new to me!) blue jeans.

Wow, what a difference to have clothes that fit! The once feared “skinny” jean has now become my best friend. I believe this is just the pick me up I needed, all for $5.99. I think I might just become a little vain and get out some makeup. I can’t stop looking at myself in the mirror. I feel like such a hot mama! Now if I could just keep my full chest, I’d be the complete package. Guess I’ll just have to keep nursing!!

  1. Hey Hot Mama!! (Hope Mr. Josh has noticed….) You look AWESOME Ms. Skinny Mini!
    Isn’t nursing GREAT! That’s how I lost all the weight! What size are you down to now?

  2. Sweet jeans! It’s amazing how a nice pair of jeans can just make a girl feel sassy. (And for the record you’re one of the funkiest folks that I know, the other one lives in San Diego on a sailboat).

    Time to go show off your sassiness!

  3. I’m so glad you got to go out and have a little “me” time and get some jeans that boost your butt and self-esteem!

    I was just like you – it was more fun to spend money on Cam and where was I going that I had to look go anyway? But after a few years – you start getting your groove back. You’ll be back in full funk by Kindergarten, I’m sure.

    You look great!
