a tisket, a tasket UPS left me a package

I sweep and mop once a day, grocery shop and do laundry once a week, switch out our families bedding once a month--did I just say that outloud--and by golly, I'll buy a pair of Sailor Pocket Trousers once in awhile.

I have a hard time shopping online. Unless it's with Amazon. I love Amazon. But buying clothing and paying for shipping, then not really knowing how something will fit, or look, or feel...I hesitate at the idea. However, when I find a great opportunity to pay no shipping, and return with no fee, I'm takin' it and runnin'. And that's obviously what my new pants' delivery team did too...I already have my new jeans. Wahoo! And I love them and their chunky buttons, and extra long striking wide leg. Since I knew you'd want a look, I'll show you here on Mr. Marvelous' weight bench in our workout room in the basement. Bring it on Autumn...60 degree weather doesn't scare me and my indigo colored jeans.

Is it just me or do packages in the mail tickle your fancy?

First of all the jeans are fab and you look great!
Saw that you enjoy Oh's cereal. One of my favorites but I can't always find it. Love it when it's on the shelf at the store. Have a great afternoon. :)

Very cute (and trendy!) jeans!

I'm like you--the site of that big brown truck in my driveway gets my little heart all fluttery! :)

Unlike you, though, I LOVE buying clothes online! I try to buy from stores that either offer free exchanges/returns or free shipping--or both!

I DO love wearing jeans too (they're my favorite!)--actually for about a week now I've been wearing them every day, even though it's not quite weather appropriate here yet! Ha!

When I was a child, I once had an ant farm delivered to my door. I was extremely excited! And can I come over to exercise in that room of yours?

I should get brave and shop on-line since I don't like shopping off-line. Yay for no shipping fees!

They look great!

I must say, those pants look a bit like bell bottoms! Would you say?

You are brave! I don't think I could order pants without trying them on!! Super cute!

Horray for packages in the mail. I like getting and giving them. And I'd like a pair of those jeans too. Hint, hint.

Yes- I LOVE packages in the mail. As a matter of fact, I am such an online shopper- the truth is, there is rarely a day that UPS does not ring our doorbell. We are seriously on a first name basis. I am a little ashamed- but, well- what the hey. Gotta love that free shipping/no sales tax ;)

Love 'em! And if you shop amazon.com or any where online- you should join BIG CRUMB! I have a link on my sidebar- you earn cash back EVERY time you shop online! You also earn money when the people you refer shop online- I joined under Erin from the Vintage Pearl and I habve others that joined under me. Every store I shop at(and Ebay!) is covered- it's so fun getting money in my PayPal account- it's like getting paid for shopping!

Way to face the changing season with sassy pair of trousers. I'm sure Mr. Marvelous was excited to find you on his work-out bench. :)
