I have caved. I purchased the ultimate in the essential suburban mom uniform.
A pair of Lululemon pants and of course a little hoodie to go with them.
The process to get these little babies was a unique shopping experience that will not soon be forgotten! As I wandered about this somewhat spandex laden store I realized I was surrounded by an alarming number of uber fit women. I ignored them all and searched out the pants who as urban legend will have it..is famed to transform all butts into objects of art. A few hard bodies disguised as women was not going to dissuade me from seeing if this legend was true.
Now. To the selection. I scoop up my size. (I’m not telling you my size, it’s none of your business) But, am I a tall or a regular? I am a tall girl. Nearly 5 foot 10 inches but I have to tell you, doing that thing we all do, holding those pants up to myself to “measure” them, it looks like these tall pants were made for Amazons! I grab some pants in my size, and the size up. (No girl wants to have to beg for someone to go get her a size bigger, size smaller great, bigger no.) Also grabbed both the regular and tall variety. My arms were getting full!
The perky little sales girl at the changing room requests my name and writes it down on a white board attached to my change room in big bold script. She then proceeds to ask me what I will be using my Lulus for?
Thinking on my feet I quickly stammer “Oh, just my treadmill at home.”
What was I supposed to say?
I can’t tell her I just want these pants to strut around the house in. That I just came in to see if the urban legend was true. That I want to see if these are truly magic pants that makes your ass look 10 years younger. That I figure my Hubby might think they are hot.
I slip out of my jeans and into the Lulus.
AHHHH… What. Turn. Turn. Giggle. Seriously?
These pants are GREAT!
I’m buying a new butt today!
I can not get to the cash register fast enough.
I text Hubby from the parking lot.
Bought new pants u r going to LUV.
Oh Yeah. Let me just say. The legend? She is true.
Run, don’t walk, to get yourself some new Lululemons and the brand new swagger that comes with it.
