No Jeans, Please!

Soooooooooo…last Saturday I went shopping w/ my momma for fall attire.

Specifically, shopping for jeans.

Please tell me this is your nightmare as well.

Ever since I was little I have had the worst experience jean shopping.

Nothing ever fits!

I have a tiny waist and a larger bottom half so you know the drill…it’s too big up top and too tight on the bottom.

What can I say…I’m curvy.

Oh, and I’m freaking sick of skinny jeans.

Do they not sell jeans for svelte women anymore?

Apparently not, because everywhere I searched it was “skinny jean, stick jean, matchstick jeans, etc.” blah blah blah.

I mean, what kind of message is that sending to us women?

How is it realistic to fit into a size 0?

Oh for the record, I don’t feel like looking like a hoochie momma trying to barrel myself into a size 8 skinny jean when I wear a 4 and oh, wait, because they are skinny I can’t even fit them around my thigh!


Do these designers not know the demographic of Texas, which is probably about 99.999% multi-cultural.

We are a curvy girl state.

I like my cornbread, biscuits, and barbecue.

Oh, and my cookies.

Chocolate ones to be exact.


You need a cookie like this after a day of jean  hell shopping.


I finally settled on two pairs of yoga pants.


You know what?


I’m 100% content w/ that!


Yoga pants say “I have confidence, so screw you skinny jeans.”


Oh and they say “hand me another cookie.”

  1. So simple! But just for all the vegetarian/vegans out there – Nutella is technically not vegetarian 🙁

      Hi Ani. Ummmmm yes, real Nutella isn’t vegan, that’s why I included and used the recipe for my paleo/vegan nutella for all of you 🙂 Therefore, the cookies would be vegan if you used that in the recipe instead of actual nutella 🙂 I love being versatile and giving everyone options. I’m not a vegan but do know a lot about the vegan community and have a lot of respect for them which is why I like to cater to them, as well as everyone else 🙂 Hope that helps 🙂

    I have never heard of coconut sugar. Where can I find it in small town Iowa? OR, can I substitute regular sugar?

    • Chelsy says:

      Kristie! What grocery stores do you have. It would be in the organic or gluten-free section. You can substitute regular sugar for sure! It has the same texture, only coconut sugar is made from coconut and it’s pretty awesome 🙂

  3. Hi, Chelsey…
    I am just getting started with some gluten-free recipes and this one looks yummy! I’m wondering if there would be any way to add almond flour, and if so how it would affect the
    cookie. Thanx!

    • Chelsy says:

      Hi Beth,
      That is awesome! I would start with 1 Tablespoon and test a cookie and see how it works. Sometimes, it can make the cookie crumbly in texture 🙁
      Let me know if that helps and what happens 🙂
