I come to you with morning breath

I practiced Lounging Complacency today. Otherwise known as the stay home, relax, and be fine with it exercise.

I admit it. "Hi, my name is Tiffany and I am a Go-go-aholic."

I've acknowledged that I have difficulty implementing the stillness proponent during the wake hours of our days--and I wish I didn't feel like we had to go somewhere every day--so last night I decided that this very Tuesday would be different.

We were to be still. In our home. Together.

So today was a pajama party for us all. Well, not all. Norah and Hazel woke up soaked to the bone, so they had breakfast in clean t-shirts, then went straight upstairs for a "splish splash," then into clean outfits. And I changed into lounging clothes from my real pajamas. But Julia and Luke sported their Cinderella and Basketball jammies through and through.

And somehow this whole thing was super invigorating. And refreshing. Like a breath of Starbucks' whole bean Breakfast Blend. Ahh.

I know that most days we all clean up nicely, like this little guy does:
..which makes today's all day pajama party--filled with morning breath--seem just fine.

I have to say, most of our days are PJ days....I need to be a little more like you and actually get dressed sometimes! HA!

I'm glad you had a refreshing and wonderful day!

So right now I am wearing blood-red long johns and hott black boots. (Gotta break my new boots in. Did I tell you I got new black boots?!) One of those...lounge nights. Low-maintenance 34th birthday party for my December baby. :)

Lukey's tie is sew cute.

How fun! I'm like you and don't often have the stay home days that I probably should. I'd just rather be out DOING! :)

I think I've said it before, but I LOVE that little tie--and he's got the grin to go with it!

Wow..that looks like fun. I can't remember the last time I did that...I think you just inspired me :)

Usually Thursdays are our pj day. We are up late from Wednesday night church and if we have no appts we declare it a jammie day. Love those days. Glad you were able to have a relaxing day-morning breath and all. :)

We love pj day too. Glad you enjoyed yours.

I see nothing wrong with that at all. And I just love that outfit. Is that a tie on the shirt or is it an actual tie? Cuuuute!

The fact that you have to SCHEDULE pj days is amzing to me. Of course, sometimes does help the day go quicker to be out and about with the kids. :)
