My measurements are 35,26,36, so I'm a pear I guess? So it seems like all my weight goes to my legs, and I hate it. I work out, so they're pretty muscular, but they're just thick and I don't like it at all. Is there any way to help avoid it? I'm not overweight by any means.

What's your current workout?
You can't change where the weight goes although outside factors such as dramatic weight gain/weight loss, pregnancy and childbirth and surgery can alter where weight goes, but there's no way of changing it just because.
Most you'll have to do is learn what type of exercise routine works best for your body. You aren't too dramatic of a pear actually, so your perception of it going all to the lower half might be just in your head.
Lunges, squats, wall sits and hip raises/lifts are absolutely wonderful for the legs, thighs and butts regardless of body shape. They'll keep you toned.
You should do about 30-60 minutes of cardio a day. You could try running, cycling, jump roping, high intensity interval training, tennis or swimming to keep your body and legs in shape.
Also, to "balance" out the top half(cause looking proportional is about the most you can do), make sure to work the upper body with weights. You won't become muscular or manly looking cause you're a girl.1
