Let's Fuarty!

I just thought the Things I'm Afraid To Tell You post was scary, this one might actually kill me. In which case, you are all invited to my fuarty: funeral in the front, party in the back. 

This fuarty will be an open casket affair as you will be required to gaze upon my lifeless body and say things such as "Jen's so skinny" and "death does not diminish her unique ability to look both highly intelligent and astonishingly beautiful at the same time". Don't pay attention to the part of my face that will be missing. It'll take a few days for someone to notice I haven't been around and my cat will begin to eat me.

Also, I'm going to need at least one of you to be a spectacle. You know, throw your body over me and cry out like a hyperactive latino woman. (This is not to be confused with specter. I'll be doing the spectering around here.)

Now that we have the fuarty squared may or may not remember the Self Love Month from way back in February. Amy Morby is at it again with the Summer of Self Love. It's an embrace your inner pin-up girl situation. She introduced her readers to her pal, Rachele from The Nearsighted Owl, who challenged us to admit our true size. And to be happy about it. Here goes nothing. I'm posting my size. On the internet. Where people can see it.

Top: Cynthia Rowley, TJ Maxx (L)
Tank: Teez Her, Bealls Florida (L)
Jeans: Nine West, Bealls Florida (14)
Shoes: White Mountain, TJ Maxx, (8.5)
Jewelry: Target, Dillards, Etsy (one size fits all)

Real talk: I used to be quite thin. Like, I still have size 2 jeans in my closet thin. I am mad at myself for not staying in shape and am working on getting my sexy back. I don't think size 2 is the answer any more. I don't know what the answer is now but I do know that I want a curvier, more feminine body than I had then. I think I'll know it when I see it. And I'll go 'head be gone with it.*

*I'm not sure what this means but Justin Timberlake sang it about bringing sexy back and I figure he must know what he's talking about since he did an entire album on sexy. Plus he played one of the nerds in the FB movie. What's sexier than that?!? Hose me down!**

**Okay fine, Andrew Garfield was actually hot in that movie.


  1. Looking good, size two, I have never been in the ball park unless you count 2T. I worked my way to a size 10 which is the best I have felt in my adult life. As a teen I was usually about an 8. I remember feeling fat, wish I would of had perspective and loved what I had then like I do now.

    1. I was the same way. Even at a size 2 I'd pick out parts of me that I wished were smaller. Now I look back at photos from that time and think I look too skinny [and tired and hungry and boyish]. Size 10 sounds great - I remember liking my body when I was that size.

  2. You are totally sexy and curvy! Work it girl! Drop it like it's hot...

    1. Working it! Thanks for the push to be real and happy about it.
