Looking for the perfect pair of Jeans

It’s been awhile since I last bought a pair of jeans. So my mission this week is to find and purchase the perfect pair of jeans. Actually two jeans, one for use with high heeled shoes and one for use with flat shoes. Therefore, I have done some research on this subject:

Petite size: choose straight leg, no boot cut, no cuffs

Tummy Troubles: choose a mid-rise that hits across the belly, not above or below it.

Large Hips: mid-rise, straight or trouser leg which falls from the hips to create a longer-looking leg line

Big Booties (Derrière): Stay away from back flap pockets or back pockets with heavy embellishment or embroidery and find a rise that fits properly in the crotch. Flare leg openings helps to slenderize your body.

Here is what Oprah had to say on her show entitled Genius Jean Makeovers….

The most important thing to look for when trying on jeans is the "rise" or crotch area. You don't want any pulling, puckering or extra fabric up front. Also, you will want to make sure your new jeans flatter your booty, hips and thighs—if they're too big in the waist, a simple alteration can make them look custom-made for your figure. After only seven attempts, Oprah found her perfect fit in a pair of AG "Club" jeans! "I love these jeans because the crease helps to lengthen," Oprah says. "And even with the cut it's not so low that when you sit, it rises down and you see your crack—that's very important to me."

Oprah's jeans (pictured above) are the perfect length for her as they go all the way down to the bottom of her high heel in the back. But if your aching feet are pleading for a flat shoe, don't you dare roll up your denim. Every woman should have a second pair of jeans that's ideal for flat shoes. So ... the next time you hear from me on this topic will be the day that I locate my perfect pair of jeans and you may even catch a glimpse of me in them if my new scanner helps out in this process.

With the help of my technically blessed daughter, I was able to add music to my blog yesterday.
Hope y'all enjoy your visit here and have a good week everyone!!

Two Visible Moons!

I wish I could tell you that this is me relaxing. Unfortunately, it's been a busy weekend for me with little chance for relaxation. No doubt a hammock will be waiting and empty just when I most need it which should be real soon. lol

Wanted to share an e-mail sent to me by a friend which indicates that two Moons will be visible on 27 August '06. It says that Planet Mars will be the brightest in the night sky starting August 2006. It will look as large as the full moon to the naked eye.This will culminate on Aug. 27 when Mars comes within 34.65 M miles to Earth.

Be sure to watch the sky on Aug. 27 12:30 am. It will look like the Earth has two Moons. Don't Miss it.....The next time Mars may come this close is in 2287. Share this information with your friends as no one alive today will ever see it again.
Have a great week and let me know whether you were able to view the two moons in your area.

Some funny Stuff

There is nothing more serious on my mind this very blessed Sunday than to pass along to you some funny stuff I lifted off a newsy e-mail from a friend...entitled

Some Funny Stuff!


1. You accidentally enter your password on the microwave.
2. You haven't played solitaire with real cards in years.
3. You have a list of 15 phone numbers to reach your family of 3.
4. You e-mail the person who works at the desk next to you.
5. Your reason for not staying in touch with friends and family is that they don't have e-mail addresses.
6. You pull up in your own driveway and use your cell phone to see if anyone is home to help you carry in the groceries.
7. Every commercial on television has a web site at the bottom of the screen.
8. Leaving the house without your cell phone, which you didn't have the first 20 or 30 (or 60) years of your life, is now a cause for panic and you turn around to go and get it.
10. You get up in the morning and go on line before getting your coffee.
11. You start tilting your head sideways to smile : )
12. You're reading this and nodding and laughing~lol~
13. Even worse, you know exactly to whom you are going to forward this message.
14. You are too busy to notice there was no #9 on this list.
15. You actually scrolled back up to check that there wasn't a #9 on this list
AND NOW U R LAUGHING at yourself.

Something for us to Think About - the high cost of gas.

As my car is now back from the garage, it now hits me just how the cost of purchasing gas has become recently. A record high of approximately $12 per gallon. The car is such a convenience, but I may have to use it sparingly until school re-opens when it will be pressed full-time back into commission to ferry the children everywhere. Until then, however, I will continue my daily walk (which last about 15 mins. each way) from home to my workplace.
