So I'm wearing my H&M skinny dark denim jeans today. I try to get 2-4 uses out of them before I wash them, because a)they shrink and b)the darkness ALWAYS wears off. Nothing makes me cringe more than jeans that once were dark wash and then look all faded. It really irks me, so if you are near me, don't wear jeans like that. Anyway, it's rather cold here today in NJ and since my boss and her backup are out of the office (and I have a car appointment right after work) I said to myself, "I'm wearing jeans today with my boots!" Personally, I hate wearing "work business clothes" to appointments. And this could be an appointment of any kind really, hair, car, doctor's. It just makes me so nutty! So that brings me to the topic of my skinny jeans and my knees.

The current pair I have on, I wore one other time before this and so today, my 2nd time wearing, and they are inside my tall boots. I have that ugly knee gathering because they are stretched out. What the hell, really? Why must they stretch out so badly?! I do sit cross-legged in work sometimes, but NEVER with skinny jeans because I know what the result is = ugly baggy knee area. And put that inside of tall boots = one ugly freaking look. So my question is, are you people wearing skinny jeans inside your tall boots? Do you have magic kneecaps that don't stretch out your pants? Are they so tight that they don't stretch? Are you wearing JEGGINGS?! Help me out here! I'm very self-conscious when it comes to baggy knee caps in skinny jeans. It's funny and ridiculous at the same time!
WHAT IS THE SECRET?! SOMEONE TELL ME.
Now that I've gotten that silly shit out of me, let's move onto something serious. I really need help here.
Let me start with the facts: As you know, I am the Maid of Honor for my sister in law. Her wedding is in April 2016. Currently, I am 29 years old, with a birthday in August, (next year I will be 30). I am in a wedding in August of next year and then 8 months later will be my sister in law's wedding. At that point, I'll be approaching 31. Do you follow?
Now here is the story: I had my mother in law over for tea to catch up and when she got to my house, she told me my sister in law and her fiance would be coming (thanks for asking if they could come over BTW) [okay that was bratty, I really didn't care :) ]. We were all chitty-chattying and my sister in law said "Okay I have a question". My stomach dropped and I wondered what this was all about. She said, "Would you be opposed to going to Vegas for my bachelorette party?" I already had a nervous pit developing in my stomach, this just put me over the edge. Now if you've been around here long enough, you know I'm not a partyer, go outter type person. So I simply stated "Really? Umm (not a bratty um by the way) I guess? I mean, if I am physically able to go, I guess so?" She didn't get my hint (aka maybe I'll be pregnant?) So we kept talking about it and then I just flat out said "You know, I'm turning 30 next year and Mike and I do have some sort of plan in action as far as moving on to the next steps in our lives, and wanting to start a family" She asked me when we would start trying (is that really her business?) and I said in the late summer of next year (which would *fingers crossed* put me pregnant in April 2016 during her wedding. All of a sudden the room got so quiet, and she turned ice cold. Everyone left and that was it.
So, is it wrong of me to say these things? Obviously I don't know what my future holds but I can't be 8 months pregnant in my other friends wedding in August, it's so messed up! I really don't want to go to Vegas (hello, we live in NJ). Not to mention putting starting a family on the side, that would be 2 vacation days I have to save, on top of 1 for her actual wedding date (it's on a Friday). Am I wrong here?! Argh. Life. It can be so complicated sometimes!
