Chasing My Fit: like WHOA I was trying to find a Christmas present I misplaced in the closet and stumbled upon my old jeans.  They were the jeans that I bought after Isabel was born in January 2012 because my other pants were too tight.  Old Navy stretch size 16 and I was busting out of them so it's safe to say that I really should have had a size 18.

Anyway...I grabbed them and held them up for my husband.  Me - "Honey, did you realize that this is what size I used to be?"  Adrian - "No I didn't!" (Smart man!)  Me - "But seriously..."  Adrian - "I know hun.  You've done great" (Very very smart man)

And the cake topper?  Wearing my jeans I wore in high school & college!
