skinny jeans

So, Friday morning my husband and I dropped our boys off at Parents Morning Out and went Christmas shopping.  We were done after one stop at Toys R Us and Target, so my husband asked if there was anywhere I wanted to go before our lunch reservations.

How many weeks ago did I get those 12P Calvin Kleins from Costco?  Two or three.  

They're already too big.

SO....Jean shopping was in order (loath).  Not the most fun thing in the world.  And quick!  Because we didn't have much time.

Due to the time crunch---we headed straight to my go-to-store (Nordstrom) and my go-to-brand (Not Your Daughter's Jeans).  Grabbed the 12P.  Tried them on.  Too big.  :D  Next!

What do you know?

The 10Ps fit.


If 8Ps ever fit I will do a freakin' somersault.  6Ps?  I'll do a cartwheel right here on this blog!!!  But for 10Ps, just a bunch of exclamation points.

You know, shopping is not the torture it used to be.  I might even like it a little bitty bit.  It helps to have a brand that can reliably fit your shape.  If you haven't tried NYDJ jeans, you should.  They work miracles.

Andddddd?  And I almost forgot to sayyyy, these are SKINNY jeans people.  SKINNY FIT jeans on me?!?!


Those are not my mile-long legs in the pic (duh), but those are the jeans.  This chick is probably a size O tall.  I'll have to get a whole outfit together before I post any pics.  You can't see it but the back pocket has a really cool chevron-shaped detail made of leather.  LOVE.

My weight this morning was 153 this morning (BMI = 27).  My goal is 140.  Hoping to get there by my 35th birthday (Feb).  :)
