So, I was totally coveting these jammies at Aeropostale, but I'm a cheapskate, and I just wasn't gonna spend 60 bucks on jammies (yes!! 60 bucks!)...so, I felt them, and fawned over them, and drug (dragged?) myself out of the store...backwards, just so I could see them longer.
A couple weeks later, I went in...and they were on sale!! Buy one get one 50% off...still...no dice. Again, I'm Mama Cheapskate when it comes to buying stuff for myself! Even on sale, they were well over 40 bucks. Again, I fawned, I petted, I shed a tear or two...and dragged (drug?) myself out backwards (which is really hard, when you're the navigator of a double stroller, dontchaknow!).
Then, I came across them at an outlet mall...this time, both top and bottom were 50% off!! Score? Nope. The old frugalista in me reared her nasty head and sent me packing, sans adorable jammies.
But...but...it totally paid off!! For yesterday, my friends, yes, yesterday...I went to check on them. To see if they missed me...to cop a little feel. And...they were on sale for $9.99 a piece!!!!
Can you believe it?!!!! I can't...in fact, I need to go check on them, make sure it wasn't a dream. Hold on...
...okay, yup! They're still there!!
Such a great deal, they were, that I bought two sets! One for our babe's Godmother, my BFF, Dr. J!! I'm safe to say what her Christmas present is...she doesn't know this blog exists! (Is that weird? That I don't tell my friends and family about my
Okay, I know you are totally dying to see my jams...so, without further adieu, I present to you Mama Cheapskate's adorable P.Js!!
Please forgive my poor photography skills, but trust me when I tell you that they feel so incredibly soft and are unbelievably comfy (I think!)...only thing sad about it, since they came from Aero, a store that caters to tweens and teens (and not thirtysomething mama's of five), I had to buy them two sizes bigger than my usual! Sigh...such is life! And they're totally worth it!
I can't wait to come home from work tonight, and fall asleep in my brand spankin' new, totally affordable, adorable jammies!!
And, in a different, grateful story, I want to say thanks to Leah!! She advised me to buy some "Bag Balm" for the nasty dry, scaly red patch under my eye (hee, hee...red patch...makes me sound like a pirate, aye mates!!). So, I took her advice, and I must say, the "bags" under my eyes have never been so soft and supple!! (Although, they are not they bags "Bag Balm" was made for!!) It's like rubbing a baby's butt...they're so soft! Thanks again, Leah!!
