Pioneer Woman's Favorite Jeans

Screenshot 3 28 13 8 40 AM


Skinny Kick Jeans from American Eagle are Ree Drummond's very favorite jeans.  Just the name of them inspires legions of shoppers all across America to snap up one, two or three pairs of them as fast as possible.  

When I read her post about them, it mattered not that I'm old(er) and fat(ter), I zoomed over to American Eagle faster than the speed of light.  But of course, they are sold out of almost all sizes. *sigh*  American Eagle, I'm sure, doesn't know what hit them.  Pioneer Women groupies obviously bombarded them with sales, so we will have to wait until they restock.  The commenters said they ran large.  Large, bless their little hearts, that alone, will endear them to women everywhere.  And did I mention super stretch?  And they're only $39!  Heart be still!

Pioneer Woman says they're her favorite jeans, and that they are "real world" skinny jeans, meaning that they aren't as fitted as the spaghetti skinny ones you see in the store.  Of course the model in the picture below is probably a size 00, so on her they look tiny, tiny.  But hey, if they're good enough for Ree, they're good enough for Moi.  Now if American Eagle would just restock!  And yes, I'll update you when I finally am able to purchase them.  I'll probably be p*ssing and moaning about how awful they look on me.  But a girl's gotta dream, after all...

I know, you want the link, here it is, drool until you can buy them.  Here it is, antique medium is Pioneer Woman's fave…  And maybe they will make them in white for summer, or capris, oh the possibilities...

My friend, Marti, sent me the following grandparentisms.  Just had to share.  Enjoy!!!  ~   Jan


1. She was in the bathroom, putting on her makeup, under the watchful eyes of her young granddaughter, as she'd done many times before. After shenapplied her lipstick and started to leave, the little one said, "But Grandma, you forgot to kiss the toilet paper good-bye!" I will probably never put lipstick on again without thinking about kissing the toilet paper good-bye....

2. My young grandson called the other day to wish me Happy Birthday. He asked me how old I was, and I told him, 62. My grandson was quiet for a moment, and then he asked, "Did you start at 1?"

3. After putting her grandchildren to bed, a grandmother changed into old slacks and a droopy blouse and proceeded to wash her hair. As she heard the children getting more and more rambunctious, her patience grew thin. Finally, she threw a towel around her head and stormed into their room, putting them back to bed with stern warnings. As she left the room, she heard the three-year-old say with a trembling voice, "Who was THAT?" (I love this one!)

4. A grandmother was telling her little granddaughter what her own childhood was like. "We used to skate outside on a pond. I had a swing made from a tire; it hung from a tree in our front yard. We rode our pony. We picked wild raspberries in the woods." The little girl was wide-eyed, taking this all in. At last she said, "I sure wish I'd gotten to know you sooner!"

5. My grandson was visiting one day when he asked, "Grandma, do you know how you and God are alike?" I mentally polished my halo and I said, "No, how are we alike?''  "You're both old," he replied.

6. A little girl was diligently pounding away on her grandfather's word processor. She told him she was writing a story. "What's it about?" he asked. "I don't know," she replied. "I can't read."

7. I didn't know if my granddaughter had learned her colors yet, so I decided to test her. I would point out something and ask what color it was. She would tell me and was always correct. It was fun for me, so I continued. At last, she headed for the door, saying, "Grandma, I think you should try to figure out some of these colors yourself!"

8. When my grandson Billy and I entered our vacation cabin, we kept the lights off until we were inside to keep from attracting pesky insects. Still, a few fireflies followed us in. Noticing them before I did, Billy whispered, "It's no use Grandpa. Now the mosquitoes are coming after us with flashlights."

9. When my grandson asked me how old I was, I teasingly replied, "I'm not sure." "Look in your underwear, Grandpa," he advised "Mine says I'm 4 to 6."

10. A second grader came home from school and said to her grandmother, "Grandma, guess what? We learned how to make babies today." The grandmother, more than a little surprised, tried to keep her cool. "That's interesting." she said. "How do you make babies?" "It's simple," replied the girl. "You just change 'y' to 'i and add 'es'."

11. Children's Logic: "Give me a sentence about a public servant," said a teacher. The small boy wrote: "The fireman came down the ladder pregnant." The teacher took the lad aside to correct him. "Don't you know what pregnant means?" she asked.  "Sure," said the young boy confidently. 'It means carrying a child."

12. A grandfather was delivering his grandchildren to their home one day when a fire truck zoomed past. Sitting in the front seat of the fire truck was a Dalmatian dog. The children started discussing the dog's duties. "They use him to keep crowds back," said one child. "No," said another. "He's just for good luck." A third child brought the argument to a close."They use the dogs," she said firmly, "to find the fire hydrants."

13. A 6-year-old was asked where his grandma lived. "Oh," he said, "she lives at the airport, and when we want her, we just go get her. Then, when we're done having her visit, we take her back to the airport."

14. Grandpa is the smartest man on earth! He teaches me good good things, but I don't get to see him enough to get as smart as him!
