The sisterhood of traveling pants


My sister Jennie is here for the weekend!!! We got to discussing dieting, which we normally do and we figured out either we are dieting or we are gaining weight. There is no maintaining. My sister Beth has lost a bunch a weight and since I'm still trying to lose the Harper (and a little bit of Ollie) weight she gave me some of her hand me downs. In particular some gap jeans that were starting to fit her loose. I remember thinking  No way are these going to fit me. She made me try and guess what they did. Jump 3 months later Jennie is here getting ready and she needed warm pants. And I say Hey try these on. She muttered something like No, If they don't fit I'll just be depressed. Guess what.....They totally fit her perfect.  We're on to something!! Now what would make this story even more amazing is if they were size 8. Who wants the jeans next?... Terri, Cathy?

so...a girl doesnt check your blog in a couple of days and misses out on so much! Ok, so I literally almost peed laughing so hard at ollies dog penis comment. Then laughed even harder about you asking if he was hanging out with ryan. Could totally hear him saying that. Also, you looked way cute at the emmy's!, rad picture taking and have I told you how much I love reading your blog!, I choked up when reading max's poem and really did cry reading about him and buying presents. I know you did too! He is such a sweet boy! 8 more days...
