Saturday Photo Hunt #2 - Skinny

The theme for this week is "skinny". Ah, skinny...such a dangerous word! Initially I was going to show you my favorite new jeans. A pair of skinny jeans that I have now bought in two different shades of blue, because I love them THAT much. Skinny jeans that I can wear beneath knee high boots. Skinny jeans that I just didn't think anyone who is NOT skinny could wear...but have since learned we can. In fact, the beauty of skinny jeans is that they actually make someone like me look taller, and therefore, skinnier. Fabulous, right? So, I was going to show you a picture of me wearing my skinny jeans, with my slouchy boots over them. I was going to...but then I took a closer look at the photo and realized that I'm really not nearly skinny enough to post a photo of myself under the "skinny" headline. It just wouldn't be right. Then I'd be forced to say something like "Skinny - Not so much"...or "Skinny - Or Not"...or...well, you get the point.

So, I opted instead to show you a picture of me from when I truly was a skinny minnie. See, up until fairly recently, I was actually SO skinny, that I used to get those "You're so skinny" kind of comments from perfect strangers. (ah, the good old days). In this photo, I'm about 11 or so, and that's my little brother, Shortstuff, about 1 1/2 or 2 yrs. old.


I love his little crossed leg in the air action. How cute was he?

I guess the world would be boring if everyone was skinny. I don't recall ever being. (skinny, not bored)

And you might be jealous of me.. who knows! Cuz I just roll everywhere I go.

You were both beautiful children.
