Whose pants are these??


Today I was doing laundry. Okay, with 5 kids, I do laundry everyday. I grabbed the hot clean clothes out of the dryer and laid them out quickly so they wouldn't wrinkle. I pulled out a pair of jeans, held them up and thought, "Whose pants are these?" For a quick second I honestly didn't know who they belonged to. Oh my heck! These were my pants! I used to wear size 24. These were my new size 16 jeans that I've been wearing for about a month and a half. I couldn't believe it, and I laughed out loud.

  1. That is awesome, I had to stop the other day and wonder if the pants I was holding were mine or my daughters...they were my daughter's.
    now that is a good feeling.
    Congratulations. I just got into a pair of 16's two days ago.

  2. It is little things like that that make every single choice you make worth it! Can't wait till I have the same experience.

  3. That's wonderful. These are little reminders along the way that all our efforts are for not. I had a similar thing happen to me. I thought maybe the dryer shrunk my jeans.

    Thanks for your comment on my earlier post. I love the title of your blog. I feel the same way... I don't know what took me so long.

  8. I love that! Like Roni, that still happens to me too. I'll pull a pair out and think they are my daughter's but they are mine!

    You asked if I were LDS the other day. I'm not - just non-denominational!
