Life's hard lately. Let's have some Stuff I love: August 27th, 2009 Edition!

1) My husband.

Last night we were watching Jeopardy and one of the questions was something about the painter Peter Paul Rubens. He liked the plus-sized gals so I said, "If I had been alive in his time, I would have been a GODDESS."

And he replied, "Um, Stephanie? How do you not realize you ARE a Goddess?"

I'm so not. But he's awesome, yes?



2) My story (and picture!)about my dog is in this book! Which is now available for pre-order! Heck yes!



3) You can still win this. Eco-friendly! And whatnot!


4) Okay, and finally? I got my new jeans today y'all.

And here I am:





And Oh Lord y'all. I know. The mirror. It's terrible.

It's Jason fault, I swear. I have no idea how a grown man can get SO MUCH TOOTHPASTE on the mirror. But he does.

And since this really doesn't show so much of the jeans? I had Girl Child take this:

TREMENDOUSLY blurry. But you get the idea.

I have new pants. They are smaller than my old pants. AND THEY FIT.


Now? I just need new shirts.

Also?




I HAVE NEW PANTS! AND THEY ARE SMALLER! AND THEY FIT! AND I LITERALLY SAID "YAY!" WHEN I LOOKED IN THE MIRROR AND I TOTALLY DIDN'T MEAN TO DO IT!








Don't you want to come visit me? I'm really fun.

You look TERRIFIC. I love that shade of red on you.

AndreAnna said...

1) You look AWESOME
2) Is that a clock in your bathroom? Because you may be the first/only person I've ever seen do that. Unless I live in a hole and that is normal.

Been reading for a while, but this is my first comment (I think - if I commented before it must not have been very meaningful, since I don't remember.) Anyway, your blog posts always make me smile - but this one made me GRIN :) Congrats on the new pants, they look fabulous!

He's right, you are a fucking goddess. I hope he knows how lucky he is.

Jocelyn said...

Awesome pants! Awesome YOU!

You have got to tell Jason that you got comments about his toothpaste spray. He'll be horrified. Also, it could float down and spot his socks. That would really tear him up!

Amy said...

Congrats!

SJ said...

kristi said...

Yeah...now Jason wants to get you out of them..LOL!

Danger said...

Don't get too attached to those pants, when you lose more weight you'll have to get an even smaller pair!

Maybe you could have a slumber party, 'cause I'm not the only one wanting to visit!

Mikey said...

oooo, hey, slumber party!!! I'm there! YOU look GREAT girl! You ARE a goddess and your husband? He's the best ever.

Sarah said...

Congrats!! It is the best feeling in the world when you go down a pant size.

And I would so totally visit you!

Rachel (Crazy-Is) said...

You're looking really good, girl! I can really tell a difference! I would totally come visit you!

Reluctant Housewife said...

You look freakin' fabulous! I love your hair! And your jeans, which are smaller and which fit! Yay!

mythoughtsonthat said...

Oh!! So great!!

Peace.

Lil Mouse said...

I hate spray on the bathroom mirror. Yuck. Why can't they aim 'down'? Anyway, how do you NOT lose your shit when you feel like you're going to? That would be a good post for you. Cause I'm about to lose my shit and I think the laptop is the only thing keeping me from losing it completely.

J said...

herewegokids said...

M said...
