Lazy Friday

Dec 8, 2012

Tonight has been a The-Newsroom-watching-nail-painting-recliner-sitting-cat-petting evening. I now have my first ever set of glitter nails (minus the clear top coat on my right hand), a happy purring cat who is lying next to me practically upside down, and ice cold feet because of keeping them up too long (a small price to pay for a very lazy evening).

My nagging husband keeps asking, “Are you ready?” He wants to know if I’m ready to start another episode of the show. I’m going to try to put him off long enough to write a post. I love my [nagging] husband. Let that be known right here and now so that in the future when I bitch about him, we’ll always have that frame of reference.

My exciting news of the day is that I now have a scheduled session with a photographer! Kira Childers from Kira Childers Photography and I will be doing a photo shoot next Sunday. There are SO MANY [sarcastic tone] venues in my town that I’m overwhelmed on where to shoot. My think-outside-the-box mind will have to come up with something.

I have been rolling an idea around in my head about the photos. If you have (or haven’t) noticed, I intentionally post my size and weight. Some bloggers intentionally don’t. I do it for two reasons: 1) to abolish any residual size-shame gunk that still hangs out in my head; and, 2) for the others who read this blog to do the same. It doesn’t matter, right? Well, it does. Even I have noticed that in the curvy girl blog world, most are smaller than me. Hell, I don’t even have an hourglass figure unless I wear the right bra.

So here’s my conundrum. My developing philosophy is in line with “you are beautiful in your body no matter what.” I also like to dress it up. My solution is probably going to be not to think about it, because over-analyzing it and getting crazy about it will just be stupid. It will also drive me nuts. But I wonder about sometimes wearing shaping undergarments, or enhancing bras, or support hose… these aren’t moral issues. And it’s not right or wrong if I don’t wear them. I suppose that sometimes I will and sometimes I won’t. The trick is to look in the mirror and think I’m beautiful no matter what.

So as the blog photos develop (get it? photos? develop?), I’ll have whatever kind of photos I want. I’m too established in some ways to try to fit myself into a BOX. This part of my journey is all about coming OUT of a box!

Found this just now on Sexy Curves Required‘s Facebook page.


It’s gonna be worth their while either way. 🙂
