Red Engine Jean Love

So, I go into my favorite little boutique in town. I know both ladies working in there, both nice people. One of them...we'll call her Angie is, um, well about 2 seconds little. Angie is probably in her sixties and is about 4ft. 11in. and might weigh 85 lbs. Tiny lady! She looks me up and down and says, "Oh, Katy you've REALLY lost some weight....I mean A LOT!! First of all, I've lost nothing.....I'm probably the biggest I've ever been and if I recall, the last time she saw me I was 9 months PREGNANT!! and not to mention I've never been a "large" person. {thank the Heavenly Father b/c I eat like crap}
I have been wanting these jeans for a while now and finally decide to go in there and buy them, but the whole time I'm in there all I can think about is how "large" I feel and how "skinny" she thinks I am now. I was uncomfortable b/c I felt like everyone in the store was looking at me and thinking..."Oh, poor use to be fat girl". Whatever, I happen to like my body after 3 babes...it's not bad.
On a happier note: I bought the darn jeans. Red Engine...Scarlett jean. They make me feel pretty and that's all that matters.

I looooove Red Engine!! I bought a pair when I worked at Lee's and omg they are my comfiest jeans ever! I could seriously sleep in them, they are that soft! I also love me some Joe's and True Religions...but Joe's and Red Engine are much more comfy! :)

Sorry about the rude old lady...I hate feeling that way. Maybe she was just so blown away by your cuteness that she didn't know what to say...and it all just came out wrong. :)

I love them! I bet you look hawt. I rock my Wal Mart jeans in my 2 c-section having body and I don't give a ratz azz what anyone thinks. My hair is cute, I have a tan, my make up looks 'licious and that's all that matters.

You always look pretty and put together every time I see you. I need to take a lesson.

Thats a funny story...you go and wear those jeans proudly:-) Sorry...I forgot to let everyone know I tagged them in that 7 things post... I'm new to the whole tagging thing :-) Either that or I am just a total spaz lately...one of the two :-) haha. Next time I will make sure to actually TELL people I tagged them! Thanks for the compliment on the Bray-I love that pic too! He is such a stinker! Your babes are precious... take care -Shannon
