Pants That Fit


This is Mo.
She's 11 (almost 12), 5'1.75" and 80-something pounds.  She's an average size for her age.  Her problem?  Her legs are the same length as mine.  I'm 5'6.5" and have about a 32 inch inseam. My legs are considered "regular."
Mo had basically given up on wearing jeans.  Every single pair she tried on came up to her mid-calf.  She could NOT find a pair that was long enough.  She probably hadn't worn a pair for over 6 months.  
The other day I realized at my lowest weight [107 lbs] I could fit a child's size 16. I was an adult 7, borderline 5. If a size 7 is equal to a girls' 16 then a size 10 in girls should roughly be the same as a 0.

I was basically right.    I went in to Old Navy a few weeks ago.  She is a size 00 in their Rockstar style jeans.  They are super skinny and only a tiny bit too long.  But, she loves them.  They look and feel great.

2017 Goals





I have 3 goals for 2017.  They are rather vague but, they totally mean what I plan on accomplishing this year.

1.Do More  -- This is as simple as it sounds.  I want to do more things.  Get back into my photography.  Start doing the things that I used to love. Buy a house.   

2. See More -- I want to go more places.  The girls and I don't DO enough.  We are together alot but, we don't do much.                                

3. Be More -- I want to grow my business.  I want to better myself.  I want to grow as a person.

So, as you can see.  I don't have anything specific.  I jsut want to be able to wake up on January 1, 2018 and say "I did alot.  I am a better person."

What are your goals/resolutions for 2017?
