New addiction.


I admit it.  I tried my first pair of Lululemon pants on this weekend and I’m already hooked.  I had heard from so many people that these pants could change your life, but to be honest, I thought they were all nuts.  Sweat pants…for $100?  Ummm…no thanks.

But over the past couple of years I became curious.  Curious enough to decide to try a pair after having Jaia.  I figured that I should take full advantage of a year sans work clothes by sporting a kick ass pair of comfy pants.  It was going to be the gift I gave to myself for getting back to my pre-baby size.

I tried them on and the rain stopped.  The clouds parted.  The sun shone through.  A rainbow appeared.  Ok, that’s a bit much, but they really are the most comfortable things I’ve ever had on.  The friends that I thought were nuts were actually pretty bang on.  I’m not sure the pants will actually ‘change my life’, but my bottom half may look a hell of a lot better from now on.  Thanks for the heads up, Ladies.  I never should have questioned your expertise.

I still can’t imagine paying close to $100 for a sweatshirt, but after this weekend’s experience, you just never know.

Kristin - Enjoy, my friend. And two years worth of washings down the road, they will still look just as great as they do right now. Seriously.

Told ya.

Heather - LuLu Lemon.

I have a redonkulous number of the pants pants – the reverse groove are my favorite.

I also own a few of their work out tanks – they make your boobs look great – very important when working out. Or sitting on the couch.

As for the sweatshirts – they are my absolute FAVORITE item of clothing. I have one in aqua blue, chocolate brown, and black. They may come to $97 with tax but they are the best quality and so warm.


Get a hoodie. Dooo it. Love yourself.

Kristin - I’ll second the hoodie motion. They are called Scuba hoodies and I have two and they are also my favorite items of clothing. In fact, I will be increasing my collection by one (1) this week. Amazing quality.

Bad news though…apparently they are getting more expensive soon because they’re going to start making them a bit longer….? I don’t know…word on the street is that they are going to be different sometime soon.

Diane Belanger - Hey Shannen,

I was thinking of getting a pair myself as we bought Anneliese a pair a couple of years ago for Christmas and I had to get over the ticker shock of paying $100 for workout wear!

Having said that Annie looooooooves hers and I am glad to know about the hoodie…good idea for Birthday!

Thanks ladies!
