100th Post!

So this is my 100th post. There's really not much to say about it. I really want to do a give-away but don't know what I would do or how it would happen. I don't get that many comments so that's another issue. Oh well...Maybe once I reach 50 followers, I will do a give away. That sounds good, right? I do want to say thanks to my readers. I know what I write about isn't that interesting but hey...I must be doing something right. Love you all! :)

In other news, apparently my weight gain is a hot topic in my office building. There's some rumors flying around too that are a bit irritating. Here's the backstory to a conversation that took place this past Monday. I work in a 2 story building that is home to 4 offices and mainly woman work in the building. When I was a smoker, several of us would have our schedules down to where we would all go out and smoke together every 45 minutes to an hour. Well, since I quit smoking this past January, I haven't seen those ladies very much. Here is a conversation with one of the older ladies:

D: You've gained weight. You look great. How much have you gained?
Me: Ummm ::caught off guard:: Thanks? I've gained about 15 lbs.
D: That's what married life will do to ya. You really do look great. You really were
too skinny and you're glowing! You're pregnant aren't you? You can tell us!
Me: ::seriously, did she just say that?:: Nope. Not pregnant, promise. ::fake laugh::
D: Oh, come on... I know you're pregnant. You don't have to lie. You haven't gained
all that weight for nothing.
Me: No, really, D. I'm not pregnant. I've just enjoyed sitting my fat ass on the
couch with my husband. Gotta go. I wanna grab my cheese sticks from Sonic
before the rain starts. ::ya know, because I'm a fat ass and all::

Yes, I've gained weight and yes, it's been brought to my attention by everyone that I know. My bank account noticed too. Ya know...from where I had to go buy all new pants because I couldn't lay on the bed and button my pants anymore. Guess what though? Quitting smoking, getting married, and trying to have a freakin' baby will do that to someone. Hell, Josh has gained damn near 35 pounds in the almost 3 years we have been together. Moreso in the last year though and I promise it's not my cooking. :)

Anyway- just a little conversation that I thought I would share with the peeps on the interwebz because who in their right mind tells someone that mess? Ugh!


  1. Yikes! You are tiny so don't let it bother you. People can be so dumb sometimes.

  2. Happy 100!
    I hate when people think its ok to say rude things. Ugh!

  3. Girl, I know what you mean. I was actually just telling Bethany about that earlier today. I have outgrown all the fabulous clothes DH bought me 2 year ago when I LOST a bunch of weight. Yep, went off BC and put all that back on. So, I finally went and bought new clothe last weekend. Even though I look better because the clothes fit better even if they are a bigger size, I get the distict impression that at least one woman in the office is dying to ask--she has commented on every outfit and she just gets that look. I want to wear a sign that says "not pregnant, just fat, thanks."
