Buh-bye Muffin Top!

I recently came to grips with reality that I could no longer rock form fitting tees and I started a liposuction fund. Seriously.
I have 2 boys. They are my world and I love them more than life itself. But the punks left me with a midsection that has more rolls than a bakery. I gained a whopping 85 pounds between my 2 pregnancies. I lost every pound and then some (thank.you.very.much), but the lovely belly bulge and love handles* decided to stick around. No tightening back up in this region and so stinkin' depressing! *There is no 'love' in my handles. What a dumb name! Jeans are always fun to fit into. I am a size 26 (2), but the low-rise waists sit just under my gut, enhancing a fabulous muffin top (not the yummy kind that you eat). And I just love having to adjust the flab when I sit down so that it doesn't all bunch up above my jeans. <--Did ya hear the sarcasm there?
So how excited am I with the newest clothing trend that is popping up this spring?? I am giddy!! It's the return of the high-waisted jeans!! Can I get a whoop-whoop!?! Takin' it back to the old school days of the 70's with higher rises, flared bottoms, and sexy curves (not bumps and lumps). My imperfections will be hidden and smoothed, and there will be no need to purchase maternity tops that have extra belly room. Plus, my hubby would much rather I spend $$ on new jeans rather than a plastic surgeon. See, it's a win-win situation!

What are your thoughts on the spring trend this year? Love it? Hate it? Anyone wanna buy my jeans?

I never bought a pair of low rise jeans mainly because -

I used to sit next to a girl at work who wore them EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. She had a major muffin top goin' on and it really just seemed to accentuate it. She said they were very comfortable. I'm sure they were but they were not exactly flattering to her figure.
