ABOUT ME

About me: I'm 42 and added another gherkin to our pickle party of a family. My husband Chuck, our 9-year-old Junior, our 6-year-old Everett, our toddler and I live in a town in Connecticut I affectionately call Mulletville Lite (aka my childhood hometown). My friends call me Nutjob, and they're right. In my husband's spare time he dresses up as a Viking and chases ghosts (and I'm the nutjob?). When I'm not busy working as a graphic designer, I lie in a ball in the corner.

The question that keeps me up at night

I've been up every night at 3:30 a.m. for the last month feeding darling Diddly. I've seen this ad for Pajama Jeans about 5,000 times:



I can't lie, I'm one phone call away from ordering them. Jeans that feel like pajamas but hoist your butt cheeks up in a flattering manner? Jeans that I can wear all day then jump into bed with? For the low, low price of $39.99, plus a free grey crew neck tee?

Hot damn!

I must know: Are they all that? Would you be caught dead in them? Do these "pants" symbolize all that's wrong with our slovenly American culture, like one of the commenters on youtube noted?

Until we meet again Pajama Jeans...

I saw on facebook that someone I knew ordered these.
I have yet to see the ad.
For me they are still urban legend...and I think I want them to stay that way.

I mean really....PAJAMA jeans?! Isnt' that just sweat pants died navy blue?

Sign me up

AMY said...

sound interesting to me. but I doubt I'd ever wear them unless someone important did first.
So if sandra bullock or Reese witherspoon wears them I'll buy a pair that day!

I just dress each morning in my going out clothes, then don't go anywhere and pass out in a drunken stupor at night.

I've actually seen them in Cato's. (Not sure if you have Cato's in Mulletville...) I read this great blog (this chick is hilarious just like you! :P) and the author says that jeggings are NOT all that. lol.

There's something so depressing about ads on in the middle of the night, isn't there? So no wonder this one speaks to you--it offers so much HOPE! It speaks to me, too. I'd even consider buying them, but the issue is what size do I get? Pants are so particular. And then if they don't fit, I have to pay shipping for them to go back and make arrangements to drop them off at the UPS store. And that's a big old pain in my ass which will make it sag despite Pajama Jeans' magic.

My kids get a kick out of asking me if I want them to order me a pair for my birthday. But, no. I wouldn't wear them. I didn't see the commercial in the middle of the night, by the way. So I guess you can see it anytime!

60 day money back guarantee?

Go for it & publish a review.

* And if the latex fatigues after a 12 hour day, and they fall around your ankles?... be sure and post the video too.

They are everything that reflects the slovenly culture we have become. They are so HORRID. I think it 's your post maternity brain talking when you say you want them. YOU DO NOT WANT THEM. They are just gross. Just like jeggings and don't even get me started on those.

Julie said...

Please don't buy them! I feel that in doing so, you might be taking an irrevocable step into a dark, evil, place that we should all strive to avoid.
(Also, my friend and I saw someone wearing them at Target this weekend and honestly, couldn't stop laughing. Look like real jeans? Eh, not so much.)

Lindy said...

I don't know what these are but have you seen the infomercial for robo stir? That is freakin ingenius.

Jenni said...

Here's what I don't understand: Are they jeans that feel like pajamas or are the pajamas that look like jeans? Are they for bed/lounging or could I wear them in public? I feel like they are unclear on this point.

Don't do it. Just don't. Really, they're one step away from jeggings. They can take a perfectly good booty and make it lumpy. Who needs that? You need Tivo! All the late night, none of the infomercials.

VandyJ said...

I have decided that Pajama jeans area n unholy mating of jeans and pajamas that should never have been let out of the closet. There is just something scary about them.

Frogs in my formula said...

Sparkling, my post maternity brain and morbid curiosity is fueling the obsession...but I'm stymied by all the concerned comments. All the "Don't do it"s!

I can't sleep until I know how horrible they really are.

Actually, I can't sleep period.

She bought 'em.

Kori said...

I might buy them. The same day I buy a snuggie, hahahahhahahaha!

Jeanne said...

The problem is, it's only a second, sexy skin if your first one also meets that criteria.

Which may be true for you, but, honey, it sure ain't true for everyone.

FoN said...

OMG buy them! That sounds like the best thing EVER. I am very fashion-forward so I know what I am talking about here.

I can't wait until them come to Canada.
