Vintage Week, Day 2

Girly Muse suggests in this recent post that if you pose with one hand on your hip, "it helps take care of the Flabby Arm Syndrome and makes you look sassy too…in a good way".  So I'm trying it out here.  I think she (and Courtney) are correct.  I do believe I haven't lifted anything of great weight since marrying the guy who would kill all bugs, open every door, loosen all twisty-caps,  and lift all heavy objects for me.  It's not anti-feminist, it's chivalry.  Go get your own.  (teasing, teasing)

My arms have become like noodles.  I figure I'll get muscles again when I have a kid and have to tote around a baby/baby carrier.  There is plenty of time for heavy lifting in the distant future.  I've gone through spurts when I'm really into babies...this is not one of those times.  I think other people's babies are cute and all, I just have no desire to take one home with me right now.  ONE exception:  Lily on Modern Family.  I want HER.  Every time I see her, I absolutely melt.  I say to Steve, "She's a twin, right?  I want one." 

He says NO every time. (sigh).

Ha ha ha I can relate to everything you said, I have a sweet, chivalrous husband too, and no kids.

Beautiful dress!

Hahhaa, oh I love that pose! My college friends and I called it "Skinny Arm." :-)

I absolutely adore how that skirt falls. So pretty!

Hm, I knew there was a reason I kept doing the hand on the hip thing!

And I feel the exact same way about Lily too!
