Aw, Dave - 4th Weekend!

Hello everyone!

Just a quick update.  This weekend was lotso fun.  I shot a wedding on Saturday (You can see that here,) and then Dan and I went to see one of my all-time favorite bands, Dave Matthews Band, on Sunday.








In other news, the size 8 skinny jeans fit!  They're a bit tight still, but here they are:



Also I will be giving away two pairs of jeans!

Size 16:




I'll link it up over at the Bloggerhood later tonight!


Yesterday it was so hot I finally decided to cave and I bought my first pairs of shorts since High School.



This was my outfit to the concert:


Of course I looked pretty cute as I can plainly see, but once I got there and was standing in a sea of girls with skinny tan legs, I started to feel pretty damn self conscious.  I started comparing myself to them and wondering how my legs looked to other people.  I wound up sitting on the blanket with a hoodie covering myself.

Damn you, self image.

Oh, and the amazing cherry cobbler Dan's Mom made that I DID NOT EAT even though I wanted some so bad!

You look great! I bought shorts recently for my first time in years too! It's hard feeling comfortable in public. I am determined to keep wearing them though :-) You are strong to resist that cobbler...I should wouldn't be able to lol The wedding pictures are awesome!!! What kind of camera do you use?

You look awesome and should be so proud! Congrats on resisting that cobbler...

Oh, and I'm loving that duckie Tshirt!

Girl, you had no reason to be self-conscious! Those are some pretty, shapely legs! Tanning is bad for you, so screw that. Pale is in. :)

Kudos to you girl for getting into those 8's.

Jess said...

Those denim shorts are made for you!!!

Okay, we need to do a shirt swap. I LOVE that shirt!!! I want it. I'll send you my turquoise one with the bird. :-) You look AMAZING!!!!!! I am still self conscious in shorts too, and also haven't worn them in years.

You look fantastic in shorts and look how far you have come. Did you ever think you would be a size 8 again? I have never been a size 8 but I do dream.

Wesley said...

I love the pic of you in your 8's the other pair. Just a cool side-by-side comparison! And nice job on staying away from that effing cobbler. That would have been harder than hell for me!

Love you!

It's funny how it's such a battle not to compare ourselves to other people, or to see ourselves less favourably, even though, in your case, you look great!

Well done for not eating the cobbler!

Dave Matthews ROCKS! I can't wait til I can go and see him again...

Crystal said...

Do not make me get violent with you. You look AMAZING!! You pull those shorts off without ANY issues. So cute!!

You look great. :) I will never wear shorts...never ever...lol

You are looking great!!

I was at the Dave concert at Alpine this weekend too! We went to both shows this year...normally we only get to see Saturday. Everyone always says night 2 is so much better...Those people may just be right! Unless some drunk kid puked on you (you were in lawn, you know what I'm talking about), I know you had a great time!!
