barefoot & famous.

Hard to believe I've only lost 2 followers during this extended blogging hiatus. Even for an over-sharer like myself there's really nothing exciting or eventful to post unless you want to read about me wasting my entire Saturday afternoon baking a double batch of cranberry-banana Pinterest muffins that tasted like a$$ {not that I know what that tastes like}. In the recipe's defence I tried to health-ify the ingredient list by making some whole wheat flour, greek yogurt and coconut oil substitutions;  insert Pretty Woman* quote, "big mistake, HUGE".

* for the record I know every line from that movie #sadbuttrue

I think I mentioned awhile ago that I hopped on the Kardashian train just as Kimmy was having unprotected sex with Kanye. I'm the type of person who - unless you've got no business being knocked up (as in child protective services has your other 5 children and you have a $100/day crack addiction) - gets pretty excited for a woman sporting a bump.

Aside from my uber lazy 'I think I'm gonna hurl' 1st trimesters, I l-o-v-e-d being pregnant. The transformation went well beyond the physical, not only did it alter my waistline (and bra size), but my spirit, my purpose, my self-confidence... for 9 months (x 2) I felt beautiful and stopped hating every single curve on my body. Even when the scale settled on the 200 lbs mark #holla, my growing baby and changing body brought me incredible bliss. Nobody ever called me fat or made fun of my - in hindsight - embarrassing Facebook bump-dates. I felt celebrated.

I wonder if the middle Kardashian sister can say the same? I doubt it. Hollywood forgets that not all us look like we ate a basketball for breakfast when preggers. Some of us gain poundage in other areas. I haven't followed any of the stories pertaining to Kim and her baby weight, but I was saddened to see an entire rack of magazines dedicated to unflattering photos and painful headlines about her baby body. 

Why does this entertain us?
Is this not just bullying on a larger scale?
Do we honestly believe that fame & fortune repels the sting of cruelty?

I don't know about you, but I think she's gorgeous and while she may want to reconsider some of her wardrobe choices, I'm celebrating her, 
                her curves 
                          and her billionaire bebe to be...

(Good stuff Sarah!). Considering how much $#!^ is hurled her way, she looks like a regular women (minus some of the maternity clothing choices, yes), who is pregnant...I agree, everyone should just leave her alone and let her enjoy these months! Nuf said.

I completely agree! If Kim gained no weight, people would be criticizing her for putting her figure before her baby. Her choice to not worry about the weight gain is getting her criticism for being "fat." She can't win. I think it's really sad that there is so much woman-on-woman bullying of this nature.

I know! I 've felt the same thing about Kim Kardashian. It doesn't matter if you like her or not, no woman deserves to have her pregnancy plastered all over magazines. I can only imagine how shitty that is!

p.s. how hot are you as a preggo woman? wow.
