Meaty Arms

Turquoise Jelly Watch

On Sunday, I prepared for my 4th flight in a week.  I went back and forth to Phoenix, Arizona twice.  The first time I went to Arizona for an event with Bosch. The second time I went to Phoenix was for Bloggy Boot Camp.

I flew both ways to Bloggy Boot Camp with Tiffany. Tiffany, you know, the VERY PRETTY WOMAN, who was actually hosting the conference. Well, she liked the watch I was wearing.  I think she might have wanted to steal it from me.  It was a Guess Watch that I received as a gift over a year ago.

She liked that the watch was a “larger style” and that it was not petite.  I’m not a fan of tiny watches and either is Tiffany.  Throughout the weekend, she kept reminding me that we needed to look online for the watch.  She HAD TO have one.

When we arrived at the airport on Sunday, we were exhausted.  Really, exhausted wasn’t quite the word for it.  We really wanted to lay down on the floor of the airport.  Why don’t they have beds for people waiting for their flight? Are we not worthy?

We grabbed some food and did some shopping along the way.  Do you like my turquoise watch I bought? It was $29 and it is a “jelly style”.  I also got a black one.  I really needed another turquoise accessory, right? Tiffany completely regrets that she did not buy an awesome jelly watch like me. I know she does, because she told me.

After doing our shopping we headed towards our gate.  As soon as we sat down, I got a random text message. It said our flight was delayed for an hour.  Supposedly a certain Vice President of the United States had landed, and all of the flights were delayed.  Didn’t Mr. Biden know that these bloggers were overly tired and wanted to get back to California?

Well since we had some time, Tiffany and I decided to shop online.  She wanted to look for “my watch” online. We searched and searched. Apparently, my particular watch model was discontinued.  I found it online, but it was sold out everywhere.

We decided that we would look for a similar watch.  Our only problem was that the watch sizes were listed in millimeters (aka mm).  Yea, we had no idea about the sizing of millimeters.  Cause were are smart like that.  We pulled up a ton of websites to compare the sizes.  We finally discovered that the face of my watch was 36mm, at least we had a guideline. And then the searching began.

Here are some of the phrases that we used when we looked for watches:

  • Guess Watch 36mm
  • Boyfriend Style Bling Watches
  • Silver Wide-Faced Watches

We finally settled on a watch from Fossil. It was pretty similar to my watch.  When we got on the plane, Tiffany told me a story about her son. She said that he likes to snuggle with her all the time.  She actually told me that he once said this, “Mom, I just love to snuggle in your meaty arms.” I was laughing so hard, that tears were starting to come down.

Now you know why we were searching for wide faced watches, for Tiffany’s “Meaty Arm”.  Just kidding, Tiffany does not have huge arms. She just prefers wide and big watches, like me.

I’m submitting my photo of my awesome turquoise airport jelly watch to Darcy’s “Sweet Shot Tuesday”. I took it with my iPhone, because I totally wanted to share my awesome watch on Twitter.  You all should link up your photos to Darcy’s challenge. It is quite awesome, and I even won a prize for my photo from last week.

I just adore that this post is titled "Meaty Arms" - I had to read it! Have NEVER had skinny arms. Ever. Even when the rest of me was skinny. Anyway, the title drew me in and now, thank you very much, I am watch shopping.

"Meaty Arms" you should tell your audience we also thought of searching for the watch under the key words: *Watches for Husky Women *Watches for Stout Women *Watches for Stocky Women *Watches for Large and in Charge Women I wish we had vlogged that 3 hours of nonsense. xoxo Tiffany

Meaty arms. Awesome. Mine are beefy. Dude, Biden slowed things up again? Lame. p.s. "Meaty" makes me think of Rob's dog...you know, Rob from "Rob & Big," the greatest TV show MTV ever produced? I miss it. I miss Meaty.

That's when you need to be the wife of a soldier and in an airport with a USO. Some of them have beds and play areas for kids. Sometimes that pesky gov't ID comes in handy.
