I may not be a nine to fiver, but I can still appreciate the joy of a Saturday.
At night, before going to bed, I always go in and check on my girl. Usually, I change her diaper, put her back to bed from whatever weird position she’s got herself into, give her a kiss, and tell her I love her. She never wakes up, just sleeps through it all, but she does often talk to me.
I lean in close to kiss her, and whisper in her ear that I love her. She replies matter of factly, “I know.”
I think everyone loves a comfy, cozy pair of sweatpants. I certainly do. If anyone, fashion blogger or editor, says they don’t wear sweatpants, know that they’re a bald faced liar. Everyone, I mean everyone, owns a pair of sweatpants, or sweatpant-like lounge pants. It’s a universal truth – like gravity.
I find great comfort in that too. It kind of brings everyone down to earth a bit. You go into a scary interview, just imagine them in sweatpants. About to meet the President, Prime Minister, or Queen and a nervous wreck? Imagine him/her in sweatpants. Seriously. All of a sudden, that person becomes less of an intimidating abstraction, and a relatable peer.
So for all of you today, here’s me relating to you.
That, and it’s a lazy day.

So naturally I tweeted back, “Challenge Accepted!!!” *because I really consider myself the Barney Stinson of fashion* That’s the reasoning behind this stunning outfit you see here, and I am linking up for WIWW with it, and if you’re visiting from there, now you know the story behind this super chic look. *sarcasm fully intended*
But as I took on this self-thrown down gauntlet, and as I’ve been reflecting on the last year, I think 2013 is the year of “Challenge Accepted!” At least I’m going to try my darnedest to have the attitude of nothing being impossible and nothing being off the table. This year, to paraphrase a friend, I’m doin’ things my way. This year I’m not going to back down. Chal-lenge Accepted!!
