I must tell you the story of the pajama pants.
On Black Friday, I bought a handful of stuff from Old Navy that I decided to get as as a Christmas gift from my in-laws. Included was a pair of fleece pajama pants. Now, I have never had a legit pair of pajama pants as an adult. The closest thing I ever got was the satin pajama set from Victoria’s Secret, which I highly recommend by the way. I was very sad when I recently caught the knee of them on a door knob in my office and ripped a small hole. Anyway, besides those I usually wore a pair of my yoga pants with a T-shirt. So Saturday evening after opening our gifts at Scott’s parents Saturday afternoon, we all put on our pajama pants to settle in for some movies. Some of you may have even seen my tweet.
Well. I wore them Saturday night and then Sunday we were snowed in. I didn’t get a shower and spent the morning cleaning. Sunday afternoon I finally took a shower, changed the “important things” and then put my pajama pants right back on for me to lounge around the house. I wore them Sunday night and until I showered on Monday at lunchtime. I know. Gross when you actually type it out like that. But let me tell you, I double, triple, quadruple puffy heart the pajama pants. They are SO comfortable. I promise I’d still be in them if I had just a tad less sense than I do. I told Scott yesterday that I needed to get another pair pronto.
Last night Melissa and I met for dessert to exchange Christmas presents and I busted out laughing as soon as I opened the box. Oh, you guessed it. Pajama pants. From Old Navy. IN THE SAME PATTERN. Holy cow. That’s what best friends are for. Even better, she thought my big ‘ol hips would still fit in an Extra-Small. Now that’s a best friend for you.
I am very sad to report the pants are all gone from the Old Navy website but I’d high-tail it to your local store and see if you can grab any on clearance!
