Sonoma, I Love You
So, I've gained a little weight lately. I love to buy Halloween candy that has some sort of chocolate on, in or around it. Then I consume every last morsel before October 31st and go out and buy Smarties to give the kids. Why do I buy Smarties? Because I won't touch them unless I'm totally desperate for sugar. I know that's lame, but that's how it is. So, after consuming a bag of peanut M&M's, mini Twix and a few Reeses Peanut Buttercups, my weight has gone up just a tad. This is a bad thing since I needed some new clothes for family pictures tomorrow. I headed off to Kohls, my head hung in shame. I grabbed a pair of super cute Sonoma pants in my normal size and one size bigger and slumped into the dressing room. I just KNEW the bigger size was gonna fit. Imagine my surprise when they were too big. We're talking "falling off as I walk around" too big. Woot! Woot! So, I tried on the normal size and they were too big too!! So, I grabbed the smaller size and WAHLAH! Look at me baby! Pants that fit perfectly! I think that everything I buy from now on will say "Sonoma" on the tag!
(P.S. I know that each company has their own sizing and that if I went to Gap I would be buying pants 10 sizes bigger than normal... I just want to enjoy this moment and pretend that my weight gain has all been muscle mass... )
