Sparkle Butt

I get home last night and I walk in and Nathan asks if I am going to go take my pictures.

I have been sick all week and I was tired and it was misty and gross outside and I just did NOT feel like it. So I didn’t, and as much as I didn’t feel like it I was bummed because I loved my outfit. So I went to my room and threw on some jeans and a tee and grabbed my book to go into the living room to read, and there on the armchair was a big package addressed to me.

I was like “oh, well what is this?” Because A) I never have stuff delivered to the house, I get all my mail at work and B) I have not ordered anything. So I went and picked it up and saw that it was from Leina. I thought “Feels like clothes…I wonder what Leina would be handing down to me?” because I just assumed it was something she wanted to free-cycle to me or whatever. Or maybe a scarf she made. I didn’t know!

So. I took the package to my room and put it on the bed. I opened the envelope. I reached in and grabbed the bag and when I pulled out an H&M bag, I dropped it, gasped and held my breath.

(I am not exaggerating. I'm very dramatic. All the time. In real life. It drove my parents crazy.)

Then I had to tell myself to calm down, because lots of people shop at H&M and she probably just packed whatever in the bag. And so I just stood there sort of staring at the bag on my bed for a minute, and then I reached down and open it and SQUEALED with delight.

I yelled “Leina sent me the sparkle butt pants*!~ I have the sparkle butt pants!” I ripped my jeans off and tried them on and they fit like a DREAM. They are so thick and nice they are ALMOST (but not quite) like a skinny pant. They are AMAZING. I did little dances while staring at the sparkle. I cannot even remember how many times I went to the back to look at them hanging on my garment rack. I would just pick them up, smile and look at Nathan, and say “I cannot believe how nice this is. I cannot believe she sent me these."

So, so nice. To say it made my week is an understatement. Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you!~

So stay tuned, because I am totally going to wear them this weekend and there will be sparkle butt pics come Monday!~

*sequined leggings from H&M. I have no idea why I was calling them this, but it is in fact a very accurate description.

I'm a new reader to your blog, but I'm pretty excited for you and your gift of sparkley leggings. I was convinced for a while that sequined leggings would not be cute, but I think I'm beginning to come around on them. I'm curious to see what kind of ensemble you put together.

Audi said...

Surely there has never been a better surprise than pants that make your butt sparkle. I can't wait to see them!
