Do you have something you just can't let go of in your Closet?

OK, there is something I need to address.  This is very serious so first I will start off by sharing a personal story that may help us all get thru this together.

I have a pair of pajama pants that I got my senior year of high school.  They have been with me thru thick and thin (thin being high school-thick being now  :)  ) and they don't owe me a thing.  I remember actually wearing them to school on a dress down day, wearing then after I gave birth to my son, wearing them in our apartment in Lake Orion for three years, and wearing them to Curves when I started working out there while I was still living in Lake Orion.  I even wore them after I discovered that there was a hole on one side of the butt, in public.  And yes, they are still in my closet and I still wear them. 
They have been demoted to PJ pants or I am sick and don't want to get dressed since I'm not leaving the house pants.  So, in saying this, I want you all to understand that I have clothes that I love, that mean the world to me, that have been with me thru Thick and thin and I still wear them BUT (here goes)...

Vicki, we need to have a little chat.  I discovered something that I am just not sure what to think about it so I am coming to you in private (via this very discreet blog) to ask you...

Have I seen you in this sweater before?!?  






I could almost swear I have.  I have known you for around 7 years now and I am pretty sure some where, at some time, I have seen this sweater make an appearance.  
I could be wrong, but I just had to confirm.  And the only reason I am so interested is this sweater must be around 16 years old.  So, anyway, maybe I am confusing it with some thing else or maybe I just wanted to find an excuse to put these pictures up here.  
Now you all know how old my favorite PJ pants are (sorry I am not posting pictures though :P)

I have a QuickSilver LongSleev T-Shirt that has been worn so many times that there are holes under the arms and everywhere else. I like to wear it under other shirts and don't plan on letting go of it anytime soon. In fact I slept in it last night.

I also have this little thong......Just kidding! :)

I also have this one sock that has three toe holes in it. Not a pair, just one sock that I can't seem to get rid of. I just like the feel of the air blowing between my toes on a warm summer day. I plan on buying one glove and cutting off 3 fingers to get the same feeling on my hand.

Leah W said...

Oh, and don't even lie, you know you wear "little things" all the time!!!

Leah W said...

Alyssa said...

Okay, Ben, I think you are the one who is a little bored today:)!

You have given us too many things to visualize today that I did not want to:) lol Chris did get a kick out of your humor though I will say. He is so looking forward to seeing you.

Me too:)! & no, Leah, I will tell you I don't save much. I clean out closet each season, and get rid of a lot! I am weird like that:).

Love you guys!

Alyssa said...

Pardon my foreign wife what she meant to say was that she cleans out the closet every spring! I myself admit to having T-shirts (notice the plural) from high school and yes I still wear them! They are quite comfortable! I can not say yes or no to a thong! I'll bet they too may have the same breeze affect! Just a guess! See you all soon!

P.S. Commando is not a bad way to go either!

Chris

Leah W said...

Chris, I can see that you and Ben both have the same sense of humor and thanks for the commando comment, now that will be stuck in my head all day...

Ok yes you have seen me in this sweater but I think I got rid of it. In fact I forgot all about that sweater. I wonder where it is. I liked that sweater and if I could find it I would wear it to christmas just for you Leah! I must confess I have a hard time throwing good clothing away. If it isn't falling apart it is safe to wear in my opinion. I love ya Leah but I'm glad you didn't do a blog on hairstyles!!!

Vicki Aeschliman said...

by the way, that sweater is probably older that 16 because I bought it at a yard sale!!!!

shelly said...

Leah W said...

I love you guys, I am excited to spend Christmas eve with you all
