I'm in Arizona

Not much time to type, as I only have until my friend gets done folding a load of laundry and we're out the door.

Enough time to tell a quick story .. We went to forever 21 yesterday for my friend to find a pair of jeans. Well, I forgot to bring a belt and the pair of maternity shorts I brought with me are under the belly and now that my belly is huge, they won't stay up on their own. I needed a belt.

Do you know how sad it is to go into a belt section and not have even ~one~ belt fit you? Little teenagers kept giving me the eye too, as I tried to find any belt to wrap around my girth.

No matter how sad that was, it was more sad that I ended up having to buy a SCARF to use as a belt. No, not a cute light scarf some women may tie around their necks in a cute knot or the kind some women use as an accessory on a handbag. I needed to buy a winter scarf. You know, a long winter knitted scarf. It's really thin thread and skinny in width, but still. A full on scarf.

Awesome.

I demand a picture of this outfit! (please)

Denise - the outfit isn't bad. It's a dark multicolored scarf (purples, red, dark blues) that I twisted and ran it through my beltloops. Then I tucked in the ends, so it just kind of looks like a hippy type belt. It doesn't look bad at all. And really, anything is better than my ass crack hanging out, don't you think?

Look at it this way - you just started a new trend in maternity fashion! Just you watch - very soon maternity pants and shorts will come with scarves as accessories! :-)

I've used extension cords and even dog collars as belts so a scarf isn't so bad.

At least you are pregnant & can't find a belt to fit you. I have been in those stores & even the extra larges didn't fit at one point. I was a 10/12 then... lovely. ;o)

There is a huge mall being built that is about ten minutes from my house. It will have the first Forever 21 in Canada, AWESOME!! Now if only we could get a Target (feel bad for me, feel very bad for me).
ps. Sorry about the belt and yes, better than crack :)
