First, let me apologize for this post.  Not only are those legs (not far off from what mine look like, but they are just) large and in charge.  Not to mention the feet of this person.  Yikes!

I wanted bring mention to my thunder thighs.  Again, NO, these aren't my legs, but seriously it's pretty close to what they do look like.  My mom said that it's her family/gene's fault that they look the way that they do. 

Last year, about this time, I really didn't mind their size because they had shrunk a bit.  Now, however, I've gained some weight back and it just goes straight for my legs.

Not only does this make it hard to walk/run but it makes it hard to buy clothes.  No one makes pants for girls with smaller waists and larger thighs.  It's troubling but there's nothing I can really do except wear more skirts.

I'm working on running these babies off but seriously, at times it can be very painful and embarrassing. 

Bottom line though, I know it's a problem.

I'm working on it but I wanted to bring attention to it because it's just getting a little out of control.

Lucky for me, I was able to get some sun last weekend and that helps camouflage my cellulite.  Too bad I don't like to tan normally, otherwise I'd do it more for looks... :)

I feel your pain. It was to the point where I was actually SCARED about getting smaller than a size 12 b/c then I couldn't buy women's (plus) sizes anymore. Plus sizes do tend to allow for a larger thigh in SOME styles.

And this is why I wear all wide legged pants...these things are horrible. I've always carried all my weight there, even when I was fairly small (for me).

If you were on What Not to Wear, they'd tell you to buy pants to fit your thighs, then have the waist taken in. I'd tell them I'm too lazy for that, but if you're not, it might be worth it :)

Be nice to my friend Jill!
ugh, I hate this.

Even when I was too thin and the top half of me looked anorexic my bottom half always was thicker. I have curves and dont mind that at times but my legs will never look defined like I would like them too. They will always be thicker and I will always gain weight in my bottom half first. sigh. And you are right, buying pants is a pain. My pants always have to be bigger to fit my legs and butt, not so attractive! I need to get my butt moving to start walking alot more.

that nightmare

Time is passing and permanent/next step decisions AREN'T being made about where our marriage is going.

Not because of anything other than HOPE....

Hope that these changes are real.  I can't deal with an act anymore.  I'm done with those fake attempts.  It just won't work for me.  I can't.

Hope that he really wants to change.  Because he's the only one that can make that decision for himself and not anyone else.

Hope that a new normal is really a possible option.  And not just a glimmer of something that will eventually be shattered and destroyed.

Hope that we could work through all of this and actually land on our feet.  But he has to want to do those things and my guidance won't help him.  He's got to want to do them on his own.  I can't help or ask or guide.  He has to do it.  Alone and with the help of God.

Hope that the narcissistic behaviors are being dealt with in positive ways and won't resurface.  With the help of prayer, guidance from h…

my little model...

There is a blog that I follow of a photographer that I saw at the Delaware County Fair. Her studio is near my home town and her pictures are very vibrant. I enjoy looking at different aspects of photography and I like seeing how didn’t people capture pictures and scenes… I guess you could say I’m envious.

While following her blog, I saw a post that stated Calling All Furry Friends and immediately responded. I have always wanted to have Toby get professional pictures done but I just fear that I wouldn’t pick the right person to capture his personality.

Anyway, as you can read in the link above, there were a handful of photographers at Megan Morgan’s studio and they were all going to be there just to take furry friends pictures.

Of the people that were there two have uploaded their pictures and Toby is in them!

First, Megan Morgan’s blog: Weekend Workshop

Then, Holly McCaig’s blog: Dogs Everywhere

They all captured some great pictures and I can’t wait to get my hands on them so that I …

Starting here..

I know that I haven't really updated this in a long while. I apologize. In the moments it was hard enough to survive, let alone write about it or find time to write about it.

With that said, I've told people over and over again that I'm going to write again, just not sure where to start.
So, today, I'm starting here.
My mom is terminal.  
Words that I cannot believe have to leave my mouth or my fingers.
She's been battling Ovarian Cancer for well over 10 years and this last year or 8 months+ have been just the worst.  Her body is being consumed by cancer and with every day that passes we are just another closer to losing her.
She's fought this whole time and continues to beat the odds that the doctors have placed before her. She's set goals and surpassed them and when the doctors say something, it's like she mentally tells herself that it's just NOT going to happen and she flies by those measurable items.
She's been a rock star and I have known …
