Perks of Being Chubby


There are many perks to being a bigger girl, and I've made a list of them for you! So if you are chubby or becoming chubby, this one's for you..

1. Your boobs will (most likely) get bigger if you are chubby or in the process of becoming chubby. I went from a B to a D.

2. Your husband's t-shirts fit you like a regular shirt. Instead of people being like, "you are totally wearing your husband's shirt." *eye roll* They are like, "cool, vintage band shirt. I've got to have one." *fist bump*

3. You save money. A lot of girls get caught up with spending money on lots of cheaper clothes that are cute but won't last for more than 2 wears, but we save money because half that shit don't fit us. (amazing grammar Sarah, you go girl)

4. People give you space when you sit somewhere. More room for this girl? I'll take it.

5. Our one piece swimsuits have "tummy control" in them, so we don't have to suck in while wearing a bikini. More beer for me.

6. You are automatically allowed to buy a big soaker tub for your house, and your husband can't say anything about it because if he did then he would be calling you big.

7. Ordering a large size or biggie size portion from a fast food restaurant is okay, especially if you are having a bad day. Heelllloo McDonald's 10 piece nugget, large fry, large coke, with barbeque sauce. My favorite!

8. You don't have to prepare for stretch marks when you have a baby because they are already there.

9. Judgement at buffets are non-existant because you most likely fit in with the crowd.

10. Last but not least, no one can beat your badass cannon ball in the swimming pool.

To all of my chubby girls who are too lazy to change it, like me, you just have to embrace it. You are perfect in every way. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise.

Food Truck Fail

I have yet to eat off of a damn food truck.

John has been talking about food trucks since he got up here last April. He's mildly obsessed - to the point that his entire twitter feed is nothing but food truck updates around the St. Louis area.

A couple of weekends ago, he found out about a food truck event about 20 minutes away from where we live. They were having the event because the city was demolishing a mall. I guess people will do anything to have a "food truck event."

So we went. It was hot. We waited in one line for 1 1/2 hours. We were 8th in line to order when they told us they had no more food. No more food? Really? We were there around 1:00pm, and the trucks were supposed to stay out there until 6:00pm.

We decided to try another line.. 1 1/2 hours later, 5th in line to order, we were told there was no more food! We said eff it and went somewhere else.

So, I have yet to eat off of a food truck. If I have to stand in line for over an hour again, I might not ever eat off of a food truck. Ain't nobody got time for that.
This picture was two chugged beers in and when we first got in line. Glad I got that picture while I could.

Have you ever eaten off of a food truck? Or am I the only one who hasn't?

The Roaming Traveler: Honeymoonin' in the Bahamas

John has been poorly this weekend, so we have been hermit crabs trying to get him better, which has me thinking of the beach. 

Beach pictures have already started popping up on my instagram and facebook feed, and it makes me want to go so bad!

We used to live 3 hours away from a shitty beach and 5 hours away from an awesome beach when we lived in Mississippi, but now I feel like we live a million miles away from one.

Seriously! We live right outside of STL in Illinois. Where is the nearest beach?!

I've been reminiscing of our honeymoon to the Sandals Royal Bahamian in Nassau. 

Even though the water was somewhat freezing almost everyday we were there, the weather was amazing, and the water was so beautiful! Also, the staff was incredible, which makes all the difference in the world, in my opinion! We didn't want to leave.

And now, we can reminisce together on the best honeymoon ever - full of visiting Atlantis, a sunset cruise, touring downtown Nassau, John getting burned and having to wear a long sleeve shirt, and beautiful blue water..

Where have you been dreaming of traveling to?
