Default Went shopping for jeans

I wasn't sure what size I was.. but I figured since I can take off all of my jeans without undoing them that I needed a new pair. I figured I'd be able to squeeze into a size 12, I thought it might be snug but I could make it. At my highest I was in a 16. What a surprise it was when the 12's were to loose! I thought it was a fluke, maybe just a really big fitting pair of jeans. So I tried on a whole bunch of 12's. They were all to big. So I grabbed a few 10's, expecting them to be really snug. They fit. I just about started freaking out in the store, I haven't been a size 10 in YEARS! Sure, some of them were to snug. But the ones I bought fit really well. When I showed them to my husband he started nodding and didn't stop... "Those, look, GOOD" he says Wowzers!

Jeans are so hard to shop for.. and then you get a double compliment with the size and with your DH's reaction! That's so awesome! Congrats!
