things I am thankful for....#2

okay so today I went into the dreaded area of my closet that contains my summer clothing....hmmpph....you know, we are getting to that time of year again......time to bring the old arms and legs out...and if you have been following my blog for anytime at all you will know how I feel about my legs.......not good...not a good scene and no, much to my dismay they haven't wintered well.........

so I started the torturous job of trying on all of my summer stuff and started to assess the situation....what we can use and what we can't..........I figure now that we are going to be "beachin it" I might just as well get over myself and get some shorts and tanks and some more "swimmers"......oh brother.......I think I might just have to show my upper leg this year..........

or maybe not..............I have decided that will not be happening once again....no way, no how... never..........these legs are just hideous...........they have not got any better even though we have donned the support hose for 3 months this winter to combat the varicose vein issue......even though we have probably done up to 10,000 squats since Christmas.........no they don't look better.....they might even look worse than the last time I laid eyes on them....at least last Sept when I was waving goodbye to these bad boys they had a bit of colour.......aghhhhh :)

so let me get to my point...........the second thing that I am most thankful for is the CAPRIS PANT......ahhhh the greatest invention......the long short...the peddle pusher, the capris whatever you call them....I love them........they have enabled me to join the "summer lovin" crowd......show my calf but not my knee.........they are just great.........I have many many pairs....in an array of colour choices..........and they have been my saviour, for the past 8 years of so.........I seriously don't know what I will do if they go out of style.........lol lol


so there you have it........#2 THE CAPRIS PANT.....(my most thankful things are in no particular order...haha)

happy monday everyone

I love carpris, too. They are soo cute and have that casual summery look to them that shorts have.

You and your legs, I am sure that they aren't as bad as they make them out to be. I bet you your husband loves them!
