Mindy Kaling does this thing I love, get ready, because it's groundbreaking... She wears mini skirts and she tucks her shirt in. Which is, in chubby Brittanyland, a mind blowing concept. I mean, my grandma always told me to tuck my shirt in, but she was old and didn't know who Shanice was at the [...]

Yeahhhhh.... no. I know my body. I know my thighs. I know how attractive I look fishing fabric out of the fold of my vagina. Bottom line? I am not built for shorts. Even at my thinnest, like in high school when I thought I was a fat ass but would now drink the blood [...]

My kids measure everything in sleeps. How many sleeps 'til we go to Disney? How many sleeps will you be gone? How many sleeps until Ice Age 10 comes out? Ok, the last one kills me. How many Ice Ages are we going to make, 20th Century Fox, until we finally admit to the kids [...]

The State of Plus

I spent last week in New York City. Since I typically travel based on food, going to New York City is a personal favorite, because I can eat like a king at both in world famous restaurants, as well as on almost every street corner. This last trip was especially exciting, not only because I [...]
