the pair of jeans that moved me to tears

All the not eating, and walking, and not eating, and calf work-outs on the playground equipment, and not eating, and lunges down the trail, and not eating, has finally, finally, FINALLY!!!!! given me a genuine reason to smile.

My skinny jeans slipped right on this morning.

The jeans that have sat on the closet shelf for the last 6 years waiting for me. Waiting in all their skinny jean glory for me to be ready to wear them again. They’ve tagged along from apartment, to apartment, to best friend’s condo, to current co-worker’s townhome – all the while patiently sure that I would one-day slip them all the way up again.

They always had faith in me, even when I lost faith in myself.

They knew.

When I think about it all, I really do tear up.

There’s just something about a pair of jeans that can do that to a girl I guess.

It’s kind of hard to take a full-body picture of yourself with a cell phone, but I promise these are my legs. You can tell, because I’m the only person alive who considers 2002-jeans with fake-wear marks across the thighs cool anymore. (sorry about the messy bed).

a pretty blank day

don’t get me wrong, some shyte happened today and whatnot, it’s just that none is the kind of thing i can post here.

i mean there was the thing with that one guy and then the other thing with the other guy.

oh! oh!

AND that one thing with that one girl.

sigh.

ya. can’t write about any of that here.

i swear, it’s almost enough to make me wish that i didn’t go around telling people about my blog all the time.

ha.

ya right. like THAT’S ever going to happen.

in other news, i did change my earrings today for the first time since getting them pierced. i went with a lovely little blue flower that i got as part of a three-pack on sale for $2.65.

seriously.

im cheap like that.

here’s a pic in case you’re sitting there on the very edge of your seat cushion wanting to know what they look like (and yes, i really am that pale):

i COULD post to these to facebook like every other person on the planet does, but then i wouldn’t get any blog clicks now would i? I just wish these photos (which I obviously took with my cell phone camera) could do the amazing state of south dakota justice. for that, you just have to hop in your car and go there. sorry. for all the rest of the pictures click the “continue reading” link below. i tried to post it so you could click “continue reading” and then go to a new page with all the pics so my blog wouldn’t have a bazillion photos on the home page, but it was messing up my coding, so instead you shall see them all there. and if you want to see them full scale, click them and they will fill your screen. i know. technology right?
