Let’s also note that my outstretched arm could not capture my entire belly.
MY BELLY WAS SO BIG IT DIDN’T ALL FIT IN THE FRAME.
We just discovered that friends of ours suffered a miscarriage a couple days ago. Obviously they’re heartbroken and our male friend wants to know how he can most effectively help his girlfriend through this loss. How can he acknowledge her unique pain at this loss and help memorialize the baby that could’ve been. And how can he help her move past it?
I’ve been fortunate enough to never experience the pain of miscarriage, but I know many of you out there have gone through such a loss and so I turn to you all as the experts on how to help our friends through this time.
So, what can I do for them? And what can my friend do for his girlfriend? Thanks in advance for all your advice and wisdom.
I still follow the twitter account, though. And the whole reason I unsubscribed from the magazine was that I was sick of seeing all the coverage of celebrities’ post-baby bodies. Yet those same stories are still abundant on their twitter. Clearly I also need to unfollow their twitter account.
But seriously, every time I see pictures of Princess Kate or fucking Kim Kardashian, I think to myself that I can just stop eating anything of substance for a few weeks because clearly my YouTubed bar method-esque workouts and 30 Day Shred videos aren’t doing the trick. And then I remember I have no self control and I get depressed that I’ll never be a size 2 again. And then I get even more depressed that I even fall into that mindset of strategizing unhealthy ways to get to an unattainable size. And then I eat my body weight in ice cream. Yes, so cliché — I eat my feelings. It’s a vicious cycle.
So basically, Us Weekly is THE WORST.
Happy Friday, y’all.
Lately I feel like I’ve been raving about a variety of products to anyone who’ll listen, so I figured I’d share ‘em with you all as well. Some of these contain referral links, but none of these things are sponsored and all were paid for with my own hard-earned American dollars. But for the record, I love free shit and would happily take any of these items for free.
So that’s it for now. Trust me and go buy all this stuff and spend all your money that should ultimately be spent on more practical things on these frivolous addictions.
What other stuff should I know about and become addicted to?
At the end of last summer I bought Mac 5 pairs of 4T pajamas to be worn this summer. Since he’ll turn 4. And his clothing size should presumably match his age. Today I wanted him to wear two-piece jammies (instead of the cozy footies he prefers) and so I busted out one of the long sleeve/long pants combo jammies that I bought last summer.
They’re too small. Like, noticeably too small. The legs are too short, the shirt is too short, but everything is also too wide. They’re a mess.
So apparently I need to get some 5T jammies for this summer. Uuuugggghhhhh.
