Sara's Technicolor Housecoat
I will greatly rejoice in the LORD, my soul shall be joyful in my God; for he hath clothed me with the garments of salvation, he hath covered me with the robe of righteousness...
A few days ago the Mr. and I were at Wal Mart with Mac buying Thailand supplies. As Mac tried on various shirts and such, I wandered over to the ladies section. And there it was.
My new bathrobe.
Oh, it’s wonderful!
It’s green and white checkered seersucker with pink dragon flies and flowers embroidered around the collar. It snaps up the front.
Mmmm. My new bathrobe.
The Mr. looked upon my new bathrobe with contempt immediately. In fact, he insists on calling it a “housecoat” and says that if he’d known I’d wanted such a thing, he’d have gotten his grandma’s for me.
The Mr. is a housecoat hater.
I put my new housecoat/bathrobe on that very night. The Mr. continues to furrow his brows and make snide comments.
I don’t care. I love my new housecoat/bathrobe.
It’s light and cool and comfortable and summery.
Yes, it is a little matronly but I love it anyway.
And it was only $10.00!
I say there’s a lot of pressure out there to look hip and fabulous all the time and sometimes, you just gotta go to Wal Mart and get yourself a housecoat.
Don’t let the housecoat haters steal another evening of unencumbered bliss.
Go to Wal Mart and get yourself a housecoat.
