Getting my Mommy Pants was a nightmare.
People have been telling me since I got married that I would look GREAT in a pair of Mommy Pants, but I was reluctant to get myself a pair.
Yes, I had watched other people wear them—my own mother had a pair that was so perfect for her, I could have sworn she was born in them. Many of my friends also had the latest, greatest Mommy Pants style, and sometimes I found myself envious of them. They looked so comfortable, so much fun. They seemed so “in”.
And then one day in February of 2007, I got a shipping notice that my Mommy Pants would be arriving around Thanksgiving of that year.
Wait. What? I hadn’t ordered any Mommy Pants. Or I didn’t think I did.
I was stunned.
Suddenly, I did not want anything to do with Mommy Pants. I wasn’t in the market for them and I certainly didn’t think they fit my style at that time. They looked great on some people, but not on me.
I am also
mocking reviewing Vis a Vis overhead markers over at This Blogger Makes Fun of Stuff. If you have ever used an overhead, or been witness to one being used? You really need to weigh in on how I feel about these markers.
Back here in Sluiter Nation? We are working on our basement.
I don’t have much to say about it except that it sucks and it’s awesome at the same time.
This has been the past two weeks here in Sluiter Nation: a constant state of construction.
Don’t get me wrong, I am super excited that this is finally happening. We have been saving and saving and planning for six years. It was time.
But I don’t do well living in a state of limbo.
So I may be hard to live with lately.
I have a new book review and a GIVEAWAY going on at Katie’s Bookcase! Just in case you weren’t sick of me sending you all over the internets today.
