I've lost almost 10 pounds since the beginning of the new year (whoa there, don't give me props yet. I gained that much weight during the holidays). So I went shopping for a new pair of jeans. My last pair was $19.99 (God bless Target) and were bought in the Fall of 2004. Yes, they've lasted me that long (again, God bless Target). They are still in okay condition, but they are getting a little white in the knee and the hem is starting to fray a lot. And come on, people, it's been over three years, I deserve a new pair, right?
Since I'm at Target 2-3 times a week, I went shopping for more, And feeling thinner, I bought a size down. And as many of you know, shopping with kids merits taking home clothing to try on rather than a wrestling match peppered with death threats inside the dressing room while your daughter plays peek-a-boo with the poor woman in the next stall.
When I got home, I excitedly tried on the pair and had to start sucking in at the knee.
I guess with that 3 1/2 years of wearing those jeans 2-3 times a week, they've stretched a bit.
Stupid, dummy stretch jeans. I guess I'll be returning to my original size.
