It's Official

I am in trouble.

My dad was coming over to dinner the other night and just before he arrived I rushed up to change into something "nice".

What did I choose?

Yoga pants with dog hair all over them and a hole in the crotch.

Granted, it was just my dad, but STILL. I changed into these pants to dress myself up a bit. This is how What N0t To Wear victims (aka "lucky bitches") get their start.

Seriously, Stacy and Clinton? I'm here. I'm a little busy (and pudgy) right this very minute, but in about six months, I would absolutely love you to ambush me. I'll really need it by then. Will you be mad if I want everything to have an elastic waist? Also? I only wear flip flops. Or running shoes. Is that going to be a problem?

I SO hear you, sister. Yoga pants rock. Period. And, as far as I'm concerned, that they only had dog hair and no spit up makes you my hero. :-)

Does your dad not like yoga pants?

I don't think it matters what you wear right now. Not a bit. And I'm sure your dad was so busy looking at his grandchildren he wouldn't notice at all.

Your wardrobe will sort itself out in time. And dog hair is good, keeps you warm :-)

I have a pair of maternity yoga pants that a friend donated to me when I was about 7 months pregnant that I STILL wear, all the time.

Totally faded? check
Totally stained? check
Hole in the crotch? Check AND CHECK.

What's even worse than all that? I stretched them out sooo much with my ginormous belly that now, with the belly slightly less ginormous but the pants stretch beyond all recognition, they hang too low around my waist and are literally like 3 inches too long and drag along the floor.

So very, very sad.

But that's my life.

And apparently yours too. So at least we're not alone!!

Too funny. I feel ya with the dog hair on everything. Our German Shepard is long haired and she hasn't been getting the good brushings that she needs lately.
I wore (as a skirt)(and still do) at the end of my pregnancy a bathing suit cover up that I had worn as a bathing suit cover up the summer before I grew 60 pounds or so........ hey there were 3 of me. It makes a nice skirt -- with the 6 inch wide "tube top" waistband..... I love it even though I look like a frumpy dump -- I think since we can't get any sleep we can wear whatever the hell we want. Right?

I spend my days in pyjamas, so I understand the dressing up issue :)

I so hear you on the yoga pants. The elastic waist makes it easy to go to the bathroom while holding your crying baby. That I have done this and am admitting to it is mildly embarassing.

Am making a note in my calendar to nominate you for WNTW in 5 months time.

Ah yes, I will never again judge a mom's wardrobe. I took Bronco (dog) to the park in red & pink pj bottoms and a black and orange tshirt w/out a bra. EVERY neighbor I know was out. But, I had brushed my teeth so I considered myself okay :)
Re: my rss feed...I don't think it's turned off, but I don't know how to do much w/ my blog.

I totally relate. That is me during my summer vacations. I also only ever wear flip flops.

seriously? said...

Ha. Here from ICLW and laughing because I was just wondering how bad my clothing is going to get as I grow out of my clothes. There are already such limited options.

Those what not to wear people are lucky!

I love WNTW! I go back and forth with myself on whether I would want to be on the show or not and usually come out with a no. The $5000 would be great, getting to meet and hang out with them and get a makeover would be great, but then people would see me on tv, which would not be so great.
