Do you have playclothes? For….yourself? I totally do. I can’t even blame motherhood – even in my 20’s, I’d come home from work, take off my khakis (haha just kidding) and change into….wait for it….
My Juicy Couture Tracksuit. Navy, piped in lime green and white, thankyouverymuch.
So once I had kids, I just ended up living in my playclothes. Which, thankfully, have been upgraded over the years (RIP Juicy), and if you are a long time reader of this blog, you’ll know I have a borderline-unhealthy obsession with skinny sweatpants (these or these, especially).
But YAY it’s HOT OUTSIDE and as I sit here, typing and sweating, the thought of skinny sweatpants gives me hives. (I also have a borderline-unhealthy obsession with turning the air conditioning on because – and this drives Mike nuts – I like to feel REAL AIR. However, one can only take so much REAL AIR when it’s 80+ degrees, so I tend to switch the AC on/off like a lightbulb, which of course, Mike knows about because the DAMN NEST THERMOMETER TEXTS HIM whenever I touch it. Or something. Anyway, this is where I typically start imperiously referring to our house as “my office” in all conversations – but I digress.)
Back to Loungewear.
Lately, I’ve been living in tiny little tap shorts – so frilly! so feminine! – paired with a pretty, lacy bra and a boyish tee. It’s comfy, machine washable, and something I can wear straight to bed. (I can’t be the only one who does this.)
I also wanted to share the world’s best cut-out cookie recipe. It’s not vegan or gluten-free, or – heavens – low sugar, but we’re all about taking things in moderation around here (well, except for Pax), and on a rainy day, making smoothies, frosting cookies (in the shape of sunglasses), and having a dance party are JUST the thing.
The cookie recipe is from The Girl Who Ate Everything. I came across this recipe when I was googling madly to find my mother’s cut-out cookie recipe, and this one looked close. However, after making it several times….it’s actually better. (Sorry, Mom!) Just like Mom’s recipe, though, I find these cookies are much improved with a few grates of fresh Nutmeg.
And here’s a link to cookie cutters in the shape of sunglasses. SO fun.
