Often when we see something crazy I have to go by my 24-hour rule so that I don't bring home a bunch of knick-knacky things that we don't really need (regardless of the cool factor). My 24-hour rule is this: put it down and leave the store. If I still want it in 24 hours I can go back and get it.
Just before Christmas Elle and I were shopping and came across these amazing cat pants!
You need a closer look, don't you?
Pure awesomeness. Elle told me I could buy them if I wanted. I almost got them for my cat-loving friend for Christmas but just before check-out I told Elle I was putting them back. She immediately put them with her stuff in the cart and then bought them for herself.
Do you know what happened? I wasn't even trying for the 24-hour rule with these pants but I could NOT STOP THINKING ABOUT THEM. Here's the thing, though. She bought the last pair in the store. We even had two different ladies ask us where we got them when they saw them in our cart. THAT is how amazing these pants are. That is the power they hold. SOLD. OUT.
A week after Christmas these pants were still calling to me. The internet, I thought. And so I searched, and there they were. You can buy anything on Amazon! So I did. And then the bad weather came and delayed my package in Illinois for almost TWO WEEKS. But today? It came.
I am now the proud owner of 'Cats Flying Through Space Cute Kitty Leggings' and I can't wait for the chance to wear them to the gym.
