The War On Jeggings.

Hello All! I hope everyone is bundled up! It’s pretty cold here in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. People are already wishing for Spring but I personally enjoy the cold weather. I despise summer heat in Alabama so I welcome the cold weather…I’ll just deal with it, it’s way easier to add clothes then to take them off…at least in public anyway. I hope everyone had a great weekend! I weighed Saturday morning and I was down .2 and then I weighed again after I exercised and I was up .2 so I pretty much decided that I was the same weight. I will definitely not complain about maintaining my weight this month…there is good food EVERYWHERE! I watched the SEC Championship game with some friends Saturday afternoon and I ate WAY too much so I am trying to work hard this week to make up for it. Sunday, I wrapped presents and helped decorate my parents Christmas tree. I posted a couple pictures below.




I am pretty much a scrooge up until the actual day of Christmas because everything is so hectic and I am way more poor than usual but Sunday was a fun time and I am feeling a bit more in the Christmas spirit. I suppose I have no choice, I have 4 Christmas parties between tomorrow evening and next Friday night. Gosh, until I typed that out, it didn’t sound so crazy…that’s a lot of Christmas partyin’. It should be fun!

Ok-now a departure from the Christmas talk. Last night was recipe night…



These were Zesty Turkey Tostadas. This was another recipe that had certain instructions and ingredients and I sort of did what I wanted. It called for chopped turkey breast but I used ground turkey. It also called for me to chop up several tomatoes and green chiles and I used Mild Rotel so if you wanted to make these, you could use what I did or use the actual ingredients. I figured it would be cheaper to use ground turkey I already had and buy a can of Rotel rather than all that produce. It literally took me less than 10 minutes to prepare/cook these. All I did was sauté the ground turkey together with the Rotel, onions and garlic. I toasted small corn tortillas in the oven for just 3 or 4 minutes and then put the turkey mix on top of them. I added lettuce and cheese. They were really easy and they tasted great! I couldn’t believe how fast it was and I love a fast recipe…so I see myself making these again in the future.

One last thing I wanted to talk about was a new fashion trend that I’m SO SICK of seeing…



The picture above shows a picture of a woman wearing JEGGINGS. In case you haven’t heard, Jeggings are a new craze that are basically a mix of leggings and jeans. I’m not going to lie, I bought a pair of regular black leggings that I wear a long dress over. I’m not 100% sure that I like them but I do know that people who are not emaciated like the lovely woman above should not be wearing Jeggings without a long top to go over them. Honestly, I don’t find them very appealing on anyone. Conan O’Brien expressed his love for Jeggings and actually wore a pair of them last week for his whole show. It was ridiculous and funny. I can see why guys might find these attractive on a fit woman because they leave nothing to the imagination. I just don’t get them. I think the thing that irritates me the most is that it is hard to find a pair of jeans anymore that aren’t skinny jeans or Jeggings. I want a normal pair of boot cut jeans! If you want to look ridiculous in a skin tight pair of jeans and show your camel toe to the world, that’s your business but as for me and my house, I’m keeping my camel toe to myself!

Alright, that’s all the venting I wanted to do about that. I hope everyone has a great week! Bye!

“This ain't nothing but a Heartbreak Town
Square people in a world that's round
And they watch you dancin'
without the sound
It ain't nothing' no nothin'
You take your number and you stand in line
And they watch to see how high you're gonna climb
Pat on the back 'n' better luck next time
It ain't nothin' no it ain't nothin' but a Heartbreak Town

Stardust well it's a funny thing
It can make you cuss
It can make you sing
And the need to touch it gets hard to explain some days
I've seen 'em rise
I've seen 'em fall
Some get nothin'
and Lord some get it all
Some just run
while others crawl away
Hold my hand baby don't let go
I've got some front money
and I've got a next show
And I'm gonna need you
down this yellow brick road

This ain't nothing but a Heartbreak Town
Square people in a world that's round
And they watch you dancin' without a sound
It ain't nothing', it ain't nothin' no
You take your number and you stand in line
And they watch to see how high you're gonna climb
Pat on the back 'n' better luick next time
It ain't nothin' no it ain't nothin'
but a Heartbreak Town.” Heartbreak Town-The Dixie Chicks

  1. First I have to say, I'm a fan of any blog entry where the blogger uses the term "camel toe"--twice!

    Secondly, I'm not a Jeggings fan. Come on. They're called Jeggings. No.

    Really cute pics and great song too!
