But the kind of leftovers I'm talking about now are "baby fat" leftovers. The post-pregnancy kind. Some like to refer to it as muffin tops. Ewwwww. I used to like muffins until I heard of this reference. Okay, I still do like muffins, blueberry ones from Starbuck's, but I digress.
And why does the fashion industry think we all like the low-rise, belly hang over the top style of jeans? I've got leftovers! I don't like leftovers, but I've resigned myself to not worrying about it this year. Next year, let's say sometime after April, I'll worry about it.
So I bought myself a new pair of jeans this week. Actually, a friend found them onsale and mailed them to me. Even with shipping it was cheaper than I would have found locally. These jeans will definitely hide my leftovers! I don't think I'll fill them out for quite some time. When I got excited about them, JP asked if the packages will begin coming in the mail again soon?! Yes, I must admit, I have somewhat of a maternity clothing fetish. This pregnancy will take me into a season completely different (by trimester) than the last. But... I must... restrain... myself!!
I couldn't resist. I tried on the jeans this morning, just to make sure they fit (below the leftovers) and I absolutely love them! Maybe I should take before and after pictures. Now, that would be funny! I folded them back up and will tuck them away with the other clothes for this fall/winter season.
Ooooh, and just in case you thought shopping during pregnancy was all about the women, I bought something for Tommy today too! He'll just have to wait until he travels here to see what it is.
