I have to tell you something. Are you ready? Ok, here it goes...
I bought a pair of skinny jeans. I know, isn't that so crazy! I remember the first time I saw them, while looking through the Sunday adds. My thoughts were consumed with how ugly they were. How could anyone wear those? It was like in the 80's, when I used to fold my jeans over themselves at the cuff, and tuck them into my socks. What an awful fashion statement, one I swore to never repeat.
I momentarily forgot that promise last week at the store. As I buttoned the top button in the dressing room, I talked myself into being a little brave. I'm the mother of 4 wonderful kids, and I spend most of my time doing all the duties that come with that. A pair of skinny jeans seemed like the perfect thing to spice up my life. I began to day dream about how cute I would look while scrubbing the toilet, or vacuuming the floors.
The jeans sat in the bag for 4 days while I waited for the perfect opportunity to slip them on and debut them. The day finally came, and as I walked into the room where my family sat, my cute husband just smiled and didn't say a word. I couldn't leave it there, so I probed further. I discovered that he preferred my old ratty jeans much better. I think his reaction to seeing them the first time was the same as mine. Sometimes change is hard for everyone, (wink).
So now I have a pair of skinny jeans. I am not sure if I like them or not. Those of you that know me, know that I don't have skinny jean legs. I have always been "stocky", and I don't mind that one bit. It's just fun sometimes to step out side of our comfort "jeans", and try something different. I'm keeping them. They might grow on me, and my husband. They look weird, but fun at the same time. They might be cute tucked into boots this fall. Who knows, maybe I'll be brave and wear them to the grocery store next time. Maybe I'll even get brave enough to put a picture of them on the blog.
