Rolls of Thunder Here My Cry!!!

So, I have a confession... this is going to sound vain but bear with me here. I am very confident. This is not my opinion it is just the truth. You can only imagine how much confidence it takes to wear my hair like I do everyday in my profession... But there is one place where I lack confidence and that is my thighs. I havent worn under a size 12 in about 5 years and I have a gap in my teeth which I wear with pride but when it comes to my thighs I melt at the idea of them hanging out.
So, I was at this fabulous thrift store in Danville, VA a few weeks ago when I was visiting my in-laws and I spotted these shots... I would normally chuckle and walk right past them but on this warm and sunny day all I could think about was how fabulous it would be to have on a pair of shorts... so I picked them up. With the dollar price tag calling my thrifty minded name I purchased them secretly thinking that I will NEVER put them on.
Well, here I am... Standing before you facing my fear... letting my Rolls of Thunder ring out for all to see.
This summer I have made a promise that I am going to try to embrace my think thighs or change them... yeah, there's a novel idea. If you don't like something on your body you can easily change it with a few weeks of work and some dedication.
Look out world... Here me and my thighs

Foxy! Your thighs are sexy. I used never to wear shorts because I hated my legs and never open toe shoes because I have ugly feet... But I've embraced them recently... Great blog!
