Because Spring Is About To, Well, Spring

Now I know full well that winter weather is not all the way behind us – there is even talk of ice and whatnot later this week in Alabama – but seeing as how it is March 1 and that means NO MORE FEBRUARY (hallelujah), I think it makes perfect sense to turn our attention to one of spring / summer’s most wondrous creations.

The Linen Blend Pull-on Pant from Old Navy.

Oh, y’all. I love these pants. I had four colors until I snagged my gray pair on a nail. So I now I only have three except I just ordered two more which means I’ll be up to 5 for spring ’15. And lest you think I’m crazy for having 5 different colors of the same style pants, let me just stress to you that THESE PANTS ARE A DELIGHT AND A JOY. I actually put mine in the dryer, and since they’re not 100% linen, they don’t need to be ironed (unless you’re a little obsessive about ironing, in which case you can iron to your heart’s content). I wear mine to work, to church, to coffee, to the grocery store, to baseball games, to hang out at home – you name it.

So. I don’t know if you like a wide-legged pant or not, but if you do, I can’t recommend these enough. I had a 30% off coupon from Old Navy when I ordered mine, so even if you don’t have a coupon right this second, you know that Old Navy will email you one within about the next five minutes. Or maybe it’ll take a couple of days. But still. Old Navy loves a coupon.

I ordered the chambray (which I’ve wanted forever but they were out of stock) and the black, by the way. I’m beside myself with kicky wide-legged excitement.

Who knew that the return of the Linen-Blend Pull-on Pants would make March 1st so much fun?

(I might be slightly overexcited about this wide-legged development.)

(However, I make no apologies considering that skinny jeans / pants make my legs look like tree trunks.)

(It’s good to be clear about skinny jean limitations.)

Happy Pants, everybody!

The Big Boo Cast, Episode 44


I don’t mind saying that I’m a little punchy in this podcast. In fact, I had to sort of dial myself back a few notches about midway through. Please pardon all my very strong opinions about and objections to things that are really not important at all.

(I like to think that my absence of charm is connected at least in part to the antibiotic I’ve been taking this last week.)

(Apparently it’s turned me into FEISTY MCGEE.)

Also, Melanie has a bit of a cough this time around. For some reason it entertains me to no end.

Anyway, we talk about sandals, musicals, Melanie’s debut as a clue on Let’s Make a Deal, my misguided experimentation with hairspray, our mutual love for crackers, Mel’s cough syrup preferences, Noonday jewelry, and Talenti gelato (which is UNBELIEVABLE).

You can click here to listen. Or here. You can even listen right here.

Or, as always, you can subscribe on iTunes if you’re feeling particularly fancy.

Hope y’all enjoy it!

p.s. The crackers we mention are John Wm. Macy’s Asiago & Cheddar Cheese Crisps. :-)

Let It Maybe / Possibly / Hopefully Snow


I have failed at all the internet things this week. I haven't blogged, I haven't answered email, and I've just barely read anything. Work was super full on Monday and Tuesday, so I've pretty much driven home every afternoon in a too-much-to-process … [Continue reading]

Let’s Just Call This Thursday Thoughts Because I Am Fresh Out Of Titles

Well, I'm not a doctor, but apparently - at least this time around - I did a pretty decent job diagnosing myself with a sinus infection. Because sweet fancy Moses do I ever have one. I also now have an antibiotic, a 10-day supply of a steroid, … [Continue reading]

This Is Where We Are (And Also: VOTING!)


I typically head into a long weekend with a very ambitious mental to-do list. In fact, as I was driving back from Nashville this past Saturday, I thought about all the things I wanted to accomplish after I got home: washing four or nine loads of … [Continue reading]

Sunday Afternoon Catch-Up


Well, I'm home this afternoon with a 5th grader who sounds like a frog and can't seem to stop coughing, and as soon as I hit "publish" on this post, I'm going to make it my business to eradicate some of the PILES-O-STUFF in this house. There are … [Continue reading]
