Even the best laid plans get foiled…
That’s my motto for this past week.
Remember, I had a cold… and then STREP THROAT? Oh, and remember that little overnight to GERVASI VINEYARD we had planned as a winter treat to ourselves?! Yeah, well… that didn’t quite happen. Influenza got in the way… HARD. Mr. THD and I, along with both our kids’ grandparents (the planned weekend babysitters) went down in quick succession starting Friday morning. Canceling that non-refundable trip was pretty tragic, as was how we felt for most of Friday + Saturday. It’s Monday, and I think I’m finally back with the living, enjoying my first cup of hot coffee since Friday.
So, it’s not ALL bad news.
While my planned cozy weekend getaway post/packing guide is scrapped for the time being, I wanted to share with you the true superhero of my weekend — these XHILARATION PAJAMAS. Actually, it’s this exact set but in a soft grey and white star print, which I cannot for the life of me find online?! (I did happen to find them in PLUS SIZE!) So, if you’re willing to take a trip to TARGET and battle some aggressive holiday shoppers, you might get lucky and score an identical pair.
Aside from the fact that they’re only $15, they’re also extremely SOFT… and cozy and surprisingly flattering. Yes, even when dying with today’s version of the plague, I still check out my butt in pajamas. These PJ’s run true to size BUT based on some reviews, they may shrink up in the wash, so definitely size up. While the pants fit like leggings, the top is the best tunic length to cover all of the goodies and make these Christmas morning appropriate lounging attire.
You know what?!
I almost forgot about my next favorite TARGET purchase that definitely came in handy this weekend — these cute WOOL SOCKS. My feet are always icicles — especially when I’m sick — and I actually had toasty toes all night long. Aside from a sick day necessity, these socks would look especially adorable worn with HUNTER BOOTS! The athletic stripe at the top is really cute. I bought a similar SHORTER PAIR (in Rich Charcoal) to wear with my beloved DANNER BOOTS.
