Happy Saturday! This is my usual Saturday morning attire, and I figured that most of you were dressed in something similar. So, since so many of you read my blog with a cup of coffee, I thought that we could have a drink together this morning. I’ll give you a few minutes to grab your beverage, I’m drinking Chai tea, and then let’s talk pajamas.
This tiny breakfast table is my normal perch as I sip my tea and look out the window. Lucy is my shadow, and she doesn’t seem to mind that I don’t have on makeup and haven’t combed my hair yet. There is a reason that you gurls call me real and authentic, what other blogger comes to you looking like this? Lol!
I love those memes that say, “I woke up like this” and you can see a full face of makeup and curled hair. Lol! Maybe they have a hairdresser and makeup artist that visits in the middle of the night instead of elves that make shoes. Anyway, today is Kentucky Derby Day, so I’ve got to get some clothes on, throw on a big hat, and go fix myself a mimosa since I am not a fan of mint juleps. lol!
Some of you have asked about my new house, and why we have moved. Actually, we haven’t moved and don’t have plans to move any time soon. We are just spending the weekends at our new house for now, and we’ll see what happens in the future.
Our house is in the flood zone and is slated to be bought out through a government program. The time frame is between 18-24 months, and we decided to go ahead and purchase a house to take advantage of the low-interest rates. Since my son and grandchildren live next door to me, their house is also slated to be purchased. Everything is in holding mode right now, and we will decide in the future which house we live in, which we sell, and where my son will end up if he also has to move.
But, since we are spending the weekends at this house, we are slowly bringing a few things at a time instead of moving everything at once. As you can see, my coffee mug is a Christmas mug. I didn’t have any plates, cups, or silverware, so I am running to the store later today and grabbing a few things.
I guess all of you actually came to the blog looking for fashion, so let me tell you that pajamas are fashion choices also. You spend almost half of your life in bed, so torn shorts and dirty t-shirts should NOT be what you are wearing. I have to admit that I was guilty of the torn shirt and t-shirt sleepwear look, but I upped my sleepwear game years ago, and Joe is much more appreciative.
I love the Cool Nights pajamas from Soma. It took me forever to take the plunge, but I’ll never go back. I have gone through my PJ drawer and ditched anything that isn’t from Soma, and have slowly been adding to my collection. I love this cool blue set, and I also have it in black.
The leopard print kimono-sleeve robe is a gorgeous print of pastel blue, pink, and gray. I thought it was so unusual, and I love that it just matches my Blue Fog pajamas. The Sleep Tank is soft and flowy, and perfect for sleeping. I could have worn a medium, but I didn’t want it to be snug at all, so I chose the large instead. The fold-over pants are in the same material, and I am wearing a size medium in those.
You might remember seeing me wearing the Blue Fog fuzzy slippers the other day when I forgot to take them off. But, in my defense, they did match my outfit. Lol!!!
I also recently got the outfit below, and it is gorgeous!
So, who are you pulling for in the Kentucky Derby?
I just was looking at May’s Special Deals on HSN, and I’m sharing a few that caught my eye. I haven’t looked at all of them yet, but if you like the sales rack as much as I do, then be sure to check these out.
