A Bit About Me, March Edition

My birthday is February 23rd, and on the 23rd of each month, I post a couple of random facts about myself.  So here’s the randomness for the month of March…

I didn’t get my first pair of jeans until I was about six.

My mom thought that little girls should be dressed in frills.  I think I had some corduroy pants, and I know I had shorts in the summer, but she didn’t like the idea of jeans.  I finally asked for some for my birthday one year, and I got Gloria Vanderbilt jeans from my grandparents.

I have to laugh about that now.  My girls got their first pair of jeans when they were about seven months old, and jeans are a huge wardrobe staple at our house.  I may pair the girls’ jeans with cutesy buttons and bows, but I’ve gotta have my denim!

I wonder if my palate is maturing a bit.

Don’t get me wrong…I COULD eat several entire bags of jelly beans during the time between Valentine’s Day and Easter…but I haven’t CRAVED them this year like I did in the past.  To date, I’ve consumed part of one bag, and I’m not even sure if I’ll have any more.  I don’t mean to jinx myself, but I wonder if my taste buds might actually be growing up???  It's probably not a bad thing.

There it is!  Until next month...

Are you sure our moms are not sisters :)

My mom didn't like the idea of girls in pants so for many years it was frilly dresses. Unfotunately for her my 2 sisters love love love jeans like it's their second skin LOL

At least you didn't have to wear "matching" clothes with your twin brother for the first 5 years or so (Like I had to)...LOL!

Oh, don't grow up! That would be a tragedy. Perhaps you should move on to Cadbury eggs... my Easter weakness.

And, I'm not sure when I first got jeans, but I know I hardly ever wore them. I was the little girl who WANTED to wear dresses everyday. :)
