Erin's New Year's Resolutions

Seven random resolutions for 2007:

1) Stop trying on jeans that haven't fit in years just to see if my thighs secretly shrunk when I wasn't paying attention (p.s. the picture at right is NOT me...)
2) Write book. What book? Um....
3) Figure out subject and plot for next book.
4) Cease biting nails during episodes of America's Next Top Model. The judging is important (all but one of the girls will continue on with the hopes of becoming America's Next Top Model!), but not enough so to chew off cuticles.
5) Remember to water Christmas tree all year long so I don't have to buy a new one in December 2007. Reduce, reuse, recycle.
6) Drink remaining red wine that was bought during Christmas trip to Sonoma, CA. (YES! I can probably achieve this in 2006 and be ahead of schedule on my resolutions!)
7) Train for try-outs for Dallas Cowboys cheerleading team.

Happy New Year!

Great resolutions! I haven't done mine yet (my first resolution is to come up with some) but I do have a couple of suggestions to make you feel better about the jeans situation.

First, donate those old jeans to the charity of your choice. Ah, yes, that always feels good. Besdies, they're probalby way out of style by now (no offense).

Second, go to Express and try on their new "curvy" ones. They're stretchy and made to fit tight and you'll be amazed at the size you'll wear. Sure, it's all part of how the U.S. is getting fatter and the sizes are all screwed up so we don't feel quite so bad about ourselves, but hey, it's kinda fun to wear such a ridicoulsy small size. And as a bonus, they're comfy and make your booty look great.

Wendy T, who equates jeans-shopping with bathing suit-shopping -- Ugh!

I like that wine resolution. I should have thought of one like that. But tryouts for the Dallas Cowboys cheerleading team? Are you sure about that? :-)

K: It's possible I'm joking about a few of my resolutions...but some are very serious (the wine, for example).

Thanks for the jeans tip, Wendy T!

Ha! I just gave my skinniest jeans to a skinnier friend, who told me that wearing them makes her feel like we're our own Sisterhood of Traveling Pants. I had to remind her that if that were the case, they would fit us *both*...
