Yesterday PigHunter gave me orders to buy new “casual clothes” to wear around the house. Apparently, he’s sick of seeing me in a black tank top and black sweat pants when he comes home from work.
I explained to him that I do get dressed every morning, but as soon as I pick up Gabbers from playschool at noon, the clothes come off and sweats go on. I want to be comfortable when I’m sitting in this chair working.
“Well, then get some different colored sweats, I’m so sick of seeing you in black when I get home.”
He’s not one to comment negatively on my appearance, so I took what he said to heart and vowed to do a little shopping for myself. I figure I can make my husband happy while helping the economy out at the same time. From what I’ve read, the economy can use a little help so I think one of you should do a little shopping with me. I’m going to purchase a $25 amazon gift card. At 5pm, I’ll randomly choose a comment from this post and that person will receive an e-mail gift card from me tonight.
Comments now closed. A winner will be announced shortly. Woo! Shopping!
And the winner is…
Because… why the hell not.
Yesterday PigHunter gave me orders to buy new “casual clothes” to wear around the house. Apparently, he’s sick of seeing me in a black tank top and black sweat pants when he comes home from work.
Why not pamper yourself?
Buy something nice and totally impractical and makes you feel sexy.
Shopping is fun!
I don’t ever pamper myself. I have too much guilt about spending money on myself. Seriously, ask me the last time I got a pedicure or a manicure. However, I will buy some clothes because, well, I need them.
You should pamper yourself…many times, I stare in my non-existent closest and I think I should do the same, but, gaining weight has prohibited me to do so. I used to say ‘its wasteful spending’ and ‘ohhhh, I’ll buy something when I lose some weight’. I re-joined WW and I’ve lost 14 pounds in 5 weeks….and I’m finally starting to feel a little positive again. I could use a good a little something to keep me motivated…maybe the spouse will tell me to get trucking to Wal-Mart! You should do the same for yourself! I think its great that the spouse is thinking about you too!
I know what you mean Y! As soon as I get home from work, I’m in my PJ’s! But on the other hand, if my husband told me to please go buy some new clothes, who am I to say no! LOL
Now you go get yourself some comfy/cool threads like your husband told ya! A tip if you will, I know that us…um…valuptuous ladies don’t always find jeans a comfortable to thing to wear, especially when we’re sitting at the computer all day (as I do), but I have to tell ya, Lane Bryant comfort fit jeans rock my world! They are a snug when you first put them on and then relax a little once you have them on for a while and are sooo comfy! Their not cheap, but believe me, I’m getting a lot of mileage out of two pairs! Plus I get to say I’m a size 4, based on how they size their jeans…so cool!
When I’m down, I gravitate exclusively toward dark, drab colors. When I’m up, I notice that splashes of bright color work their way into to mix. Perhaps you do similarly, and there’s some subconscious wish on his part to see you happy?
Um, I’m sitting here in my sweats, too… And I meant to shower, but lost track of time.
Um, I am still in my pjs and it is noon…but I do tend to jump in some ‘real’ clothes by the time 5 rolls around! Comfort is key, long live yoga pants! Have fun shopping!
Gleep– whoa. that’s deep. I have been rather down since Grandpa died. Also, since I’ve started working full time from home, I am home all day, cut off from the world and fresh air. Perhaps you’re on to something. In that case, he should take me away for the weekend, not tell me to buy new clothes! 😉
I wore my giant (seriously – men’s XXL) flannel jammie pants until 1:00 today. With slippers!
You know what I do? I buy men’s pj bottoms and cute tops to wear around the house. Comfy as hell and it works even if I do have to go out in public…like to check the mail!
Have a blast shopping Y!!
That is how I am. When I am home I am COMFY. I do wish I could be comfortable in clothes though. To go all day in clothes instaed of comfy wear would be so strange.
My husband sometimes says the same thing to me. But by the time he gets home I am tired and have been dressed all day and taking care of a 1 year old can ruin nice clothes. lol.
Have fun shopping!
I love your blog! It’s beautiful. 🙂
I subscribe in a reader. I haven’t been reading very long and I hadn’t commented yet… So I hadn’t been here. Gorgeous!
My husband comes home to me in my monkey pajamas most days. Shockingly he has not complained. Obviously my monkey pajamas are super-sexy.
Whatever you get – do share/model!
I realized the other day every shirt I have is stained – and I thought wearing all black hid that, nope! I feel better about myself if I at least look presentable and shower every other day (hey, it’s the best I can do right now…)
I’m the same way. As soon as I get home, I change into sweats!
Have fun shopping!
You should treat yourself to some new comfy clothes. I find it a necessity to have a few nicer lounge clothes.
Good for you…Happy shopping!
It’s 2PM here and I’m still in my pjs – And I had to get gas taking the girls to school this morning. Yeah, they were SUPAH PROUD!11!
Good for you — everyone deserves a little pampering & “retail therapy” now & then… Have fun!
I have levels of comfy clothes – those that are presentable in public (running to the grocery store), those that I prefer to sleep in, those for house cleaning, and those for when I want to bundle up and stay warm!
I have a sweatsuit mommy uniform too. I think it is fabulous. Good luck shopping! 🙂
I am the same. I never pamper myself. I feel guilty about spending money. Clothes. Shoes. Haircuts. I haven’t had my hair cut in about a year. I was saying the other day to my hubby that I need to get it done and said sure. And I was like hmm..then I can dye my hair (from a box) and he was like, why don’t you just get them to do it? Cause it’s gonna cost me $100! He’s like So?
Yeah, I need to adopt his attitude when it comes to some things! lol
Oh, as a side note, please don’t enter me in the contest 🙂 I would end up spending more on shipping then what the gift card is for (living in Canada)…unless of course you are willing to purchase an amazon.ca card? 😉
I have to agree with Jenn. Your blog is very pretty!
I’m still in my pjs. It’s 3:15 pm.
Wow! That’s very generous of you to offer up a gift card.
Good luck with your shopping!! Have fun!!
I understand- I wear the same yoga pants & t-shirts all the time!
I don’t really NEED whole lot, but I am currently saving up all my money to a) finish paying for college and b) make my rent so there isn’t a whole lot left over for personal spending..
ps I am delurking because I love to enter contests for things, but I really enjoy reading your blog!
I wish I could work in my PJs. So comfy! I’ve been able to find cute comfy clothes at Target and Old Navy… inexpensive enough that you can treat yourself to more than you would be able to at other stores.
With money tight these days, I find it hard to buy even things I desperately need. I finally bought a new pair of black work shoes from Amazon last week, which I’ve needed for months… and then splurged on a second fun pair in a bronze color because they were only $20 each, and am trying to stop feeling guilty about it. At least they’re cute.
wow, i can’t remember the last time i bought something for myself! college sucks up every single extra penny!!
have fun shopping and don’t forget to show us what u bought! 🙂
Good luck with your shopping. I’m a pro at it, as I’m able to justify ANYTHING, but my best friend is horrible at it, and I literally have to talk her into buying a $15 t-shirt. About half her waredrobe is from when she was in high school…she’s 31 years old now.
You can do it!
Heck, I take off my clothes when I get home from work (around 3:30) and put on my ratty old PJs. Sweats would be an improvement! 😉
How sweet…of you both. I would buy some brown boots that I really want but keep putting off because the kids always need something more than I need those boots.
You deserve to feel good. If that means sweats then I say buy a few other colors and a tank that shows some cleavage and you’ll both be happy 🙂
When I home, I also pick comfort over style. I sadly don’t always match either, but if it’s just the family here, who cares. I will say that these are my favorite lounge/yoga type pants, and they are so comfy and come in a variety of colors.
I need something new for the fall. pick me please
Wow, that is generous! My wardrobe could use some updating.
WOHOOO!! My Baby needs a carseat! And although $25 dollars doesnt go very far in car seat world..anything helps.. but let’s be honest.. I’ll probably end up spending the money on those little socks that look like shoes anyway!! 🙂
Sweats would be an improvement for me as well! I had to send my child care kids home early today to take my sick daughter to the doctor…the very minute she went down for her nap, I put on a pair of orange flannel PJ pants, a bright red hoodie, and ugly (but cozy!) pink fuzzy socks.
I stay at home with the kids, and my wife can count on seeing me wearing one of three outfits when she gets home (when it’s cold, at least).
1. Blue jeans and a red t-shirt – 15%
2. Blue jeans and a blue t-shirt – 70%
3. Blue jeans and a green t-shirt – 15%
If I had sweats that fit me right now I’d wear them instead. *laugh*
Today I bought my ten year old daughter some yoga pants because I realized she didn’t have any elastic waisted things, and God knows, ya need elastic waisted pants some days. Even when you’re ten. Cause they’re comfy and make you feel good and chill-out-ariffic.
My husband just convinced me that we should go and see Obama in Norfolk tonight, so I am thinking that elastic waisted pants are a-go for that too……lots of standing around and feeling cold. But feeling cold FOR CHANGE! 🙂
I LOVE sweats in the winter time. There is NOTHING better. That is very generous of you Yvonne! Thanks for giving us a chance to win this
i’m all about comfortable clothes. ALL about it.
and i guess i’m also mercenary enough to delurk when there’s shopping money involved 😉
You know of all the people I read I feel like you really deserve this! I hope you splurge just a bit!
When I get home from work, I immediately change into any number of “comfy pants” — gray sweats, some terry or velour track pants, or some capri-style lounging pants I got from Target.
I also have a few pairs of comfy, knee-length shorts. (Also from Target.) I have them in basic colors like black, khaki and a totally not-basic gray/black/white plaid print.
You can still be comfortable and stray from the sweats. 😀
Plus, you would look fantastic in bright colors, like fuchsia or teal.
My husband has asked me to please wear something besides jeans and a hoodie. Anything, besides jeans and a hoodie. I sit here right now, wearing jeans and a hoodie. I might be a lost cause.
Go for red, I just read today that men prefer girls in red and think it’s ultra sexy, well go for red if you have time for all that stuff, otherwise pick blue, lol
Woo hoo! Baby needs new shoes 🙂
If my husband gets home and I’m wearing something besides my pajamas, it’s a minor miracle.
you SHOULD go shopping Y! it always makes me feel better getting a few new clothes! Enjoy your shopping adventure — and may I plug JC Penney’s? I have gotten alot of cute things there recently as most of their things have been on pretty decent sales.
Sounds like me. I tend to only get dressed on the three days my daughter has preschool… I do remained dressed for the duration of the day, though. Is this some sort of sign? lol
You definitely deserve to splurge, Y!
I’m trying to save up enough so I can splurge and buy myself a digital SLR so I can take more photos.
Hi, Y–I read you every day, but have never commented. So sorry about your grandfather.
I am a sweatpants queen, as well. Wear ’em proudly (and comfortably!). And I love a hubby who demands you to shop! 🙂
Your husband reallly told you to spend money on yourself! You go have a blast!
Tell PigHunter that SOME of us would KILL for the ability to wear a black tank top and sweatpants…(tries to dig at thong wedgie while readjusting bra and hunting for errant high-heels that managed to disappear under the desk).
I swear, if I ever quit this job…I will come in on my last day sporting a spaghetti strap tank top, no bra…a pair of ratty yoga pants and some well-loved flip flops. I’ll wear no makeup and will put my hair up in jaunty pig-tails.
Y, that will be the best day I will EVER have at work!
That is so nice!! You definitely deserve some pampering. I love amazon!!
Well, being pg, I have to admit that I wouldn’t use this amazon gift for clothes, but I do hereby solemnly swear to use it on something just for me. I kind of think I deserve it since hubby left for basic training for the Army last night and I’m the only one left to love on our 4 year old… oh, and I teach full time, and did I mention that I’m 6 months pregnant? 🙂
Oh you sweet, wonderful sharing woman. I need new sweatpants too!
I hope you had fun shopping for yourself!
Get yourself some purple, girl! That always makes me feel better.
I wish my husband would make like Pighunter and order me out to the store. I was just thinking in the car this morning that I haven’t bought a clothing item for myself in over two years. NOTHING. Is that unbelieveable or what?
Good luck! I hope you find some great stuff!
Trust me. What PigHunter was telling you was the sweats are fine and dandy, but pair them with stillettos and he’ll bring home some candy.
Danskin has very cute, very comfortable clothing in all sizes at reasonable prices. (I am a fan, not an employee 🙂 )
Maybe he would rather you greet him at the door in saran wrap?
Hmmm… You look sassy in red. I vote for red! Which is not to be confused with “voting red” which is SO NOT THE CASE. If this confuses, buy a blue sweatsuit.
My vote is red too! Men love red!
Yes, I would also very much appreciate a direct order to purchase some clothes! In any case, I agree that you would look great in red but also think that probably a lot of rich colors would look awesome. I say try to go for colors, not shades of black, grey, and neutrals. Have fun!
First-time commenter! Happy shopping – although I think there is nothing wrong with putting on the black sweats as soon as you get home!
I love it when you call me random.
I’ve been thinking for my bday that I want my boyfriend to buy me clothes because I have no winter clothes that fit me and I’m not motivated myself to go out and by some.
I wish my husband would order me to buy new clothes… or new anything, for that matter. Good luck!
Oh, fun! Shopping! I’m in!
For a guy named Pighunter, he’s a pretty cool guy. Hope you have fun shopping.
Oh fun! Please don’t get pink sweats. You should get a sexy little number and surprise him the next time he comes home.
Good for you! And good for him on encouraging you to treat yourself. (Well, that’s the nice way of saying it. 😉
So good for you! I need to do the exact same thing. I’m afraid to ask my Pighunter what he thinks of what I wear!! I’m not ready for that sort of honesty!
I do the same thing..I get home and put on comfy clothes. And I hang onto my work clothes for FOREVER. My boyfriend is always telling me “take up more room in the closet!! GO SHOPPING!!!”
That’s so funny. I just finished pulling on my jeans because it’s time for me to pick up my oldest at school.
I walk around the house in torn up flannel pants and wal-mart clearance shirts. I want to be comfortable too!
It’s also funny how time and kids and weight changes things. I remember I wouldn’t be caught dead leaving my house in sweats or jeans. Now I throw a sweater on over my pjs and put my slippers on and say “lets go” to drop my daughter off at school.
Have fun shopping!
Different colored sweats!? Ha ha!! I put on pj pants after I come home from teaching all day, so I know exactly what you mean! I wish my hubby would tell me to go shopping, usually it’s him telling me not to shop so much!!
Pighunter is awesome! My husband has never said such a thing to me, but I suspect he will in a couple of months when my regular clothes stop fitting and I need maternity!
Enjoy your shopping! I could really use a new winter coat (it was 32 here today) so I would LOVE being chosen for the Amazon gift card.
Thanks for considering me!
You know, how often does a husband ever tell a wife to go shopping? Go buy yourself something pretty, bright and that makes you feel good. Enjoy!
My husband says the same thing. I am always in my pajamas (which is just a t-shirt & black yoga pants) as soon as I get home from work. Oh Well. It is comfortable and I dont’ have money to buy nice looking t-shirts!
Ooh, wow, I would love that gift card! I am about to take a $10k pay cut just to stay employed. Halp!
Wow! Your husband sounds like mine! He has been telling me since I have had my last baby 10 weeks ago to do something nice for myself, but having the time is never their! After 7 kids, getting my nails and eye brows done is the last thing on my mind. I know I need it, but I feel guilty, I tell myself that the money I am spending is money that can go for a new pair of shoes, or food or diapers for the kids! GIRL IF HE IS TELLING YOU TO DO IT, THEN GO FOR IT! If I had the means I would, I guess us mom’s do deserve it, I used to make sure I kept up my appearance but now we live out in the middle of no where literally, so finding a place to even do it is a scavenger hunt! Shit I have to tip the pizza guy 15 bux just for driving out here since he comes 20 miles to deliver our pizza!
Do something nice for yourself, with everything you have been through, you deserve that much! Take care!
Years ago my husband complained about this very same thing. I’ve taken to putting my uncomfy clothes back on right before he gets home. He’s worth it.
It sounds like you are taking his comment very well and I’m glad because even if he meant it exactly like he said it, its not bad for him to want to see you in a little variety.
But– also think that maybe he knows that this is (obviously) a really hard time for you and if you’re like most people, a little retail therapy can be a bright spot in even the dreariest time.
I would stay in sweatpants all day long if I could too. Ahh…sweatpants. Unfortunately they look down on that at work.
PS. I am so very sorry about your Grandpa. I was not close with either of my grandpas, and I think you are sooo lucky you had such a close relationship with him. Your family is in my thoughts.
Awesome girl! Where are you going shopping? Wherever…remember that you have to try it on no matter how it looks on the hanger. My mom-in-law scored some great deals at Kohl’s yesterday.
OH fun!!! I want sweats of another color also 🙂 Black is so slimming, only except not in sweat pants 🙂
Comfy clothes are goooood. I do the same thing every day, once all my running around is done, the sweats are donned. You’ve got a good one (hubby) Y, telling you to spend some $ on yourself? Priceless!
‘Round here yoga pants and t shirts are def considered “going out” clothes. All I can say is thank God for yoga pants, they are the cheapest, most comfy, flattering pants ever! I’ve been big and small and no matter what its ALL about the yoga pants! After I met them at 16 I was like, “and why would I NOT wear an elastic waist?” I still don’t have an answer.
When I was younger and taking care of babies, I never cared about staying in my PJs all day. They are all in school now and I work from home. I feel depressed if I don’t showever every morning and put on some “real clothes” cause I am gettin older and need all the help I can get to look good, lol! Plus I never know who my teenagers will bring home after school, and it is embarassing to meet their friends in PJs!
I pamper all the time, maybe a little too much but you totally deserve it due to the month you’ve been through! Go get yourself some cute sweats oh and stop by the lingerie section just to treat yourself and pighunter.
I have the most comfortable sweats in the world, but I cant find them in the stores anymore! They are thinning at the knees and thighs, dang it!
so what if you’re always in black? at least you’re not in a robe or a mumu.
I lived in my sweats when my children were young. How I wish I was back in the day!
You are too, too kind, Yvonne.
And I bet you rock those sweats.
Wow, hey, I like sweats!
My husband lost his job today and the first thing I did when I got home was got in my sweats and had a good cry!
Being your sweat-suit clothes kindred spirit, I would love to join you in a spree (for more sweats, of course!)
Do you lose the bra like I do, also? lol
Out of the running, but glad you sound in better spirits.
you go girl every one deserves a little pampering now and then.
I say you use the gift card for yourself too!
pampering one self is hard at times…usually my kidlets get more then me cause i feel so guilty. but if your hubby said go shop woman.. go do it ~!:D never turn down like that LOL
go for fun colors 🙂 pinks, blues oranges yellows
hugs!!! something that makes the wine go wow shes kicking hot 😉
I’ll help with the economy!
Have fun shopping
I get to go to work in my “PJ”s. I wear scrubs! SOOO COMFY! Got to be careful with eating though, if my scrubs are getting tight watch out!
Hey this girl could use a new work-appropriate outfit! Pick me!
Have fun shopping, I agree with PigHunter – you do deserve it!
you inspire me.
Have fun!! I am obsessed with buying for everyone else but me. I spend my Christmas gift cards on my daughter! That won’t stop me from pushing someone else to go out and pamper themselves. =)
Have fun shopping!! Sadly I have the same affliction.. Although I’ll do you one better and say that I normally wear oversized tee-shirts & DH’s pajama pants.. Heck if I’m not leavign the house, what’s the point in getting dressed in “real” clothes? That and the fact that I’m at that I really need to loose weight b/c I’m not buying anymore fat clothes point in my life.. Let us know what you buy 🙂 And I think a picture is called for!
you’re so generous!
I too put on sweats as soon as I get home from work!
I do the same thing, I just rotate through different pairs of ancient sweats.
throwing my hat into the ring.
your husband is awesome 🙂
sweats are my life!
Hmmm, my husband hasn’t said anything yet. But I wonder if he’s thinking it all the same. Because my sweats are either plaid, polka dot, or ones with little flying witches on them….
Awww!! What a sweet husband you have! On my days off I don’t bother even showering if I have no reason but less get out of my pjs.
Sweet! Enter me on that.
Dude I went to thrift stores this weekend and you would not believe the great clothes I got for .25 to $1. The last 5 years people have been consuming like mad and you know where those clothes end up? The thrift store.
yea for new clothes!
Can you buy colored sweats at Amazon? Really?
Awesome! New clothes always make me feels better. And don’t feel bad. The second I get home from work my clothes are OFF and the Jammie pants are on. I hate being uncomfortable. It’s like having a wedgie all day long and not being allowed to pick it. lol
You’re so generous!
I have like, three sets of “work clothes”, which kinda sucks ‘cos my students get to see one outfit at least twice a week but I’m too cheap to go buy anything else (the Fat Lady Clothes are EXPENSIVE!). Especially when the second i get home, off come the pants and on go the pj’s.
with everything you have been going through, you still are thinking of others. you totally rock girlie…
I’m not buying my sweats at Amazon! I just thought that would be the best gift card to give away.
But you should be able to buy pretty colored sweats at Amazon!
I am the QUEEN of black sweatpants. I too am a work-at-homer, so I totally understand 🙂 I have every pair of track pants Old Navy has made in the last 5 years. It’s too sad.
I’m confused, I thought you went back to work? Whatever, enjoy the new clothes. I totally understand about the mom wardrobe. I have two pairs of yoga pants I should NEVER wear, but I rotate them around and around and around. They’re comfy!
I also am going to have to help the economy…i have been a stay at home mom for 16 years, and i had a job interview today… i will need a whole new wardrobe if i get this job
They do have yoga type pants in cute colors these days. I’m sure you can find something – good luck!
My readers have been extremely kind to me– $25 doesn’t compare to the kindness that has been bestowed upon me here. I am so very grateful and I just wanted to have a little fun here today. All the bad news and sadness and BLACK SWEATS– Time for a little joy, man. xoxo
lol that’s how my Dad is. he thinks I live in my pajamas and it’s really just that I’ve already gotten dressed and then gotten BACK in my pajamas by the time he gets home from work. maybe I need new pajamas and you need new sweats 😀
I started a full time job October 1st, but! I work from home… so, yeah, I went back to work, but I never leave the house. 🙂
LOL! You are funny. It’s always nice for a little chance so something besides your black sweats will be good for ya! 🙂 But you have to tell us what color you got (and if they are infact sweats!).
I would love to be selected for the Amazon gift card. Today, my baby boy turns 8 weeks old, and with a few unwanted pregnancy pounds lingering and the work wardrobe limited, I could use the $25 towards a pair of nice black pants.
Good for you doing something nice for yourself…even if your husband did have to push you to do it. We need a photo montage, like the one you did before Blogher!
I bought a new shirt and 2 pair of work slacks yesterday and the guilt is killing me. My son needs underwear and new pajamas. Why is it so hard to put ourselves first? Guilt! Guilt!
Good for you for going shopping… I’m guilty of the same thing, my kids are wearing cute little outfits and I’m wearing my jeans and a t-shirt. every. day. I’m so boring!
good for you!
Well…you could always “upgrade” from sweats to PJ pants! OK, maybe that’s a downgrade but they come in pretty colors and they are really soft. AND there’s the bonus that you’re ready for bed anytime after 12:00 noon. In my world, that is what it’s all about. Happy shopping!
I just picked up my step daughter from school and I’m already in my pajamas. Am I disqualified?
Have fun!!! Try NY and Co.
I will de-lurk for a chance at that…I love me some Amazon shopping 🙂
I hope you find something fabulous and flattering that is comfortable and on sale.
I think it’s great that your man wants you to spend a little time and money on yourself.
PS when you look good, you feel confident, and feeling confident is worth every penny
I do work in my jammies 2 days a week. Because I can, that’s why. But it is embarrassing when the landlord comes over.
Thanks for reminding me that it’s time to get into some PJ’s!
If your man is like most of the men I know, I’m surprised he doesn’t recognize the value of something thoroughly worn-in and comfy. (see the pair of undies w/one fruit of the loom guy hanging on for dear life in any man’s wardrobe for proof)
however, new clothes are always fun and I agree with the poster recommending PJ pants. I have several pairs that i wear with my large assortment of grey or black t-shirts.
If you want to branch out colorwise, I’m betting greens & purples would look WONDERFUL on you.
Do we get to see a virtual fashion show of your new clothes? Please?
that’s awesome!! what a great man!
I say Yoga pants and a tshirt… or PJ bottoms and a tshirt. with the PJ bottoms, you can be more creative and fun depending on the pattern. just make sure there are fun colors on them… NO BLACK!
I’m afraid I’m almost always wearing black. It’s just a very flattering color on me 🙂
My marital status (divorced) enables me to put on my flannel pj’s when I get home from work if I am so inclined (and I often am!) – ah, the joys of singlehood!
I find that I wear black too often. I guess that I feel slimmer when wearing it. Though some may say it is a representation of how one feels on the inside. I don’t know so much about that because there are many days that I wear black, usually pants, I feel quiet happy that day. This is coming from a stay at home mom that hasn’t updated my wardrobe in a long time. Have a nice time treating yourself to some new clothes. 🙂 Thank you for the chance to win an Amazon gift card!
We were just talking about this at Bible study this morning. About how even though we’re at home all day and cleaning (etc.), we should at least make ourselves look presentable for our husbands when they get home. I’ll get dressed nice(r) and do my makeup for church or dinner, so why can’t I do it for my husband (or at least wear a clean shirt and brush my hair! lol)?
The SECOND I walk in the door I can’t wait to strip off my clothes and put on my sweats or PJs (depends on whether or not I have to take the dog for a walk). And what’s funny, it’s not like I have to get dressed up to go to work. It’s jeans, T-shirts and boots all day every day. And it’s usually black boots and black T-shirts, so I fully support your black sweats and tank top.
Once upon a time I wore black sweats, but I’ve branched out. I find that this time of year I’m way more into french terry and corderoy, both of which look MUCH more presentable than sweats but are just as comfy. The Silhouettes catalog, which conveniently came today, has REALLY comfy clothing in it (skip the horrid Christmas dresses) that is reasonably stylish and quite inexpensive. As in cheap. 🙂 You can browse at silhouettes.com to see what there is. Often you can find good stuff on sale. Like for $10/sweater.
Have fun treating yourself to some new clothes. It will make you feel more glamourous, even if you just get casual duds.
I’m partial to the PJ pants idea actually 😉 I’m sure PigHunter would love that!
I love gift cards! I also love your candid blog! You go girl. Spend a little money on yourself. You deserve it!
I’ve been in my pj pants for four hours now (6:20 here). My husband works the afternoon shift or he could be saying the same thing to me!
If only it were a gift card to Bullock’s….sigh.
Oh pick me.. hope I am the lucky girl who gets to buy new sweats with ya
Woo hoo! Thanks for sharing the love. 🙂
Jaysus! All the COMMENTS!!!! I hope you find yourself something BEAUTIFUL!
Shit. You don’t need to sell me. I’ll go shopping with you.
That’s awesome! Have fun shopping!!! I’m in the same boat and would love some new comfy clothes.
I love to shop! And, I sure do need some new clothes.
Sweatpants rock. Stretchy pants rule.
Enjoy shopping, Y! You deserve it.
Is it too late? I don’t know what time zone you’re in! Oh, how I love Amazon!!!
I wish the hubby would say that to me! He’d be afraid the bank would be crying afterwards! Enjoy yourself!
Is it too late? I don’t know what time zone you’re in! Oh, how I love Amazon!!!
………………….and……………………… we’re all out of the woodwork. Choose me, cuz you know I’ll spend it on books for the library at my school. (I’m okay for clothes. I mean, once I iron, that is. And do the laundry.)
not too late! I’m in CA, so t here’s still time.
Oh! Oh! I need to buy a GRE book so I can get into the Masters program for a MA in Education!

I think you and the economy are going to be happier tonight with this decision!
Good luck shopping! I hope you find something marvelous!
It’s not everyday a woman gets to hear her husband utter those words! Lucky you!

Aw, that’s a cool idea! Hmm…I think with the time difference, I’m just making it in…
Oh, how I miss shopping…
being unemployed in california sucks.
You totally deserve it! Ooooh I wish I had new lounge clothes. The Pj pants from Old Navy circa 2001 just aren’t so sexy anymore. Have fun!
My favorite part of the day is coming home and putting on comfy clothes!
New clothes are always fun – have a good time shopping! and take some pix of what you buy!
I just posted on the same thing on my blog. I guess we’re in the same slump, but boy are we comfy…
Ack – only 5 minutes left!
ooh ooh, pick me!!!! =) *hand way up in the air*
