Default I Wore Shorts

I went to the beach and I wore shorts!! Not a big deal for some, but I haven't worn shorts in YEARS. I still felt a little self conscious, but actually forgot I was wearing them and ran into 7Eleven to get ice for our cooler and got a gigantic smile, turn around & a GOOD MORNING Miss from a guy buying coffee when I walked in. (GIGANTIC Ego boost)
Feels good to see the fruits of all this hard work!

First off congratulations! Second off I'm SO jealous (but in the good way ) I haven't worn shorts in who knows how long. I'm so proud that you managed to smile and feel good and even managed to forget about your self consciousness! Congrats girl . And dontcha just love moments like those that make you feel all warm inside. It's amazing how little things like that can help the ego.

Congratulations!! I wore shorts for the first time since middle school Saturday at the guy I'm dating's pool party. I had to change them after being pushed into the pool (lol) but I had to prepare a whole week to wear those shorts and it was totally fine.

CONGRATS!

Believe me, plenty of us understand your accomplishment! I haven't worn shorts in public since high school, and I am not even close to the point where I'll be wearing them again. Someday soon!

Thanks everybody! It did feel great! Way to go to all us girls getting back into those shorts. @ Mello if I was pushed in a pool they'd have to call 911 lol (*Sigh* Why did I never learn to swim?)
