Friday Flotsam


I need help.

You’re like, seriously already?

Let’s talk about joggers. Pants joggers. Sweats joggers. Running joggers. Lounging joggers. Cute joggers. Joggersjoggersjoggers.

Do you wear them? I’m starting to get into them more. But I’m having THEE hardest time finding the right pair. I did find some good running ones that are thin and airy sort of? Airy isn’t the word. They’ve got the little athletic mesh holes on the side that let air in. Breezy. They’re breezy. (“You can’t SAY you’re breezy. It negates the breezy!”) But see I need some warmer, loungy FLEECE ones, and every pair that arrives from Amazon (probably my first mistake) are bonafide hideous balloon pants that make me look like Spongebob square pants. Having none of that.

Tell me some good jogger brands! I WILL SAY, I ordered these and I feel like they’ll be pandemic perfect, but I also want some black fleece ones. Are you into joggers? This might be my new thing! Joggers.

You guys, my friend was on a plane yesterday and this drunk girl (also on the plane) stood up, TOOK OFF HER PANTS and puked everywhere. She was screaming and fighting random people nearest to her WITH NO MASK ON. The plane had to make an emergency landing to control her. It’s so 2020 right now.

Also, you are going to die: yesterday I got a mistake photo text from a young shirtless ripped dude, with the followup that said, “oh, wrong area code.” (that’s not all he said but my mom is reading this, so.) What’s even better was that Aaron was standing RIGHT NEXT TO ME when this seemingly scandalous photo popped up on my laptop, o m g. We both just looked at it. Paused. I enlarged it. (because duh) And then we laughed so hard at this poor guy, having no idea who he sent that to. (to whom he sent, whatever) I responded (obviously) with two rows of unruly HA HA HAs, and left it at that. He was SO EMBARRASSED, it was fantastic. I screen grabbed it and sent it to my GirlSquad text group. Between shirtless dude and pantless drunk girl, my friends and I were able to stay semi distracted and entertained for most of yesterday at the expense of two hopeless, half-clothed millennials. Maybe we should introduce the two of them.

I feel like you might have needed those stories right now.

Remember Halloween? How does that feel like six months ago?

Honestly was that last weekend? That can’t be right.

Was it?

I’m finishing The Memory Wood this weekend, HOLY MOLES. Have you read it? Between the anxiety from that nightmare story to the current events of these last four days I’m gonna need to watch Friends and the Little Mermaid for a straight month.

You’re like, oh she’s about to address the elephant in the room.

HAHAHAH, get it?

Never mind.

However, Ashlee and I crafted our Christmas reading list, so I’ll post those this weekend in Stories (and here later) when the books arrive. It’s nothing but warm and fuzzy and fluffy and cozy and sparkly and glitter and cuddles and a hot toddy or 80.

You in?

Weekend plans?

Not a single ding.dang.thang and it is heaven. Ohhhhh I should work on my gallery wall YES I’M STILL TALKING ABOUT IT.

Tell me HOW YOU ARE. Panicked? Confident? Depressed? Renewed? All of it swirled together and tied with a giant blue and red bow?

And then tell me your favorite joggers because priorities.

    Lululemon has some good joggers. They are the only ones I’ve found that don’t look ridiculous

    So I bought these fleece joggers from Target a few weeks ago and they are the softest things EVER. They did shed like a mofo before I washed them the first time, but other than that, they're amazing.

      AHHH PERFECT. I've not been in Target literally since 2019, so I forget to check there! Thank you, thank you.

    Well, since I don't jog, I got nothing on joggers :). I have been watching all the "fluff" I can get on Netflix and Amazon; all the Christmas movies and Hallmarkish movies because they're so darn predictable and damn, that's what I need right now. My anxiety was off the charts the last few days, well months to be exact. I was having physical pain from the stress. But yesterday I decided I had to let it all go; because I know there's very little I can control other than myself. And to be there for my people. Because after all, we're talking about 2 creepy old white men. My vote is that we all turn off our TV's except for Netflix and Amazon, of course, and hug our kids and pets, beautify our nests, cook good food, listen to great music and hang out with our besties. That's something I can get behind!

    Panicked 100%. In the fun space where I am obsessively checking CNN and any other news source I can find to compare them while also eating my feelings.

    Here's what I'm wearing. I've fallen in love with the brand: Fleece Lightweight

    Vuori makes the absolute BEST joggers... not droopy at all. Actually cute, and soooo soft. They are short (which I like because I am short) but they have a “long” size if you need it.

    Eddie Bauer Cozy Camp Joggers. I live in these.

    Not sure they're joggers but definitely sweats. They're from Uniqlo and they are cheap but fit nicely and when this is ALL over I will likely throw them away. ;)

    Wow I simultaneously severely do and do not hope that, one day, the "pantless drunk girl" tag brings up more than one result Joggers - i wear these 9 out of 7 days a week and also they are $cheap$

    I’ve heard the Soma joggers are great.

    Try Pact brand joggers/sweat pants! Love this brand. The clothing is well-made and ethical!

    These are amazing! I have two pairs.
    • Marine November 6, 2020 at 8:25 pm #
      Ditto these! Just bought a pair earlier this week and they are AMAZING. Definitely thinking about buying another because I don’t want to take these off. Think yoga pant waistband with jogger legs.

    Have you seen people on the FaceB selling Zyia active wear? They have the BEST JOGGERS ON THE PLANET. I kid not- worth every penny.

    I got a lovely pair from Old Navy! I’m totally into them as well and get you have to find the perfect pair to feel comfortable and confident in them. I also got a pair from Carley Jean Los Angels (CJLA), check her out on Instagram. I have also seen some nice ones at Target!

    These are actually called leggings but they are jogger-like and they are my favorite cozy pants I’ve ever bought!

    I just stumbled on your blog and I just laughed out loud and read it to my husband. After the events of last week and basically 2020, your post was amazing. Also...yes...priorities and with it being 2020 I haven’t worn anything else BESIDES joggers...Lululemon Algin jogger. Love them and I feel like you can dress them up (right?).
