For my US readers, I hope y’all had a Happy Thanksgiving and stuffed yourselves silly! For everyone else, I hope you’re doing great and are ready for Christmas! Yes, ’tis the season…. finally!
I was fortunate enough to spend Thanksgiving back home in New Orleans with my family and friends. It was our first Thanksgiving in New Orleans since 2008! Oh how I missed Grandma’s oyster patties!
Now that it’s officially Christmas season (yay!), I’m going to share a very seasonally-appropriate piece of clothing… my third pair of True Bias Hudson Pants – AKA Cozy Fleece PJ Pants! (See #1 here and #2 here, if you’re curious.)
This is definitely a pair that shouldn’t get any time out in public. These are strictly for lazing around indoors, staying warm, and enjoying a tasty beverage. My drink of choice here is a delicious peach cream ale/lager brewed by DD himself. Yep, he makes his own beer! A total keeper, I know. This beer is a bit special since it was an experiment. We hand-picked many pounds of peaches at a Pick-It-Yourself Farm in Wilcox, AZ and decided to throw them in a beer! We’re calling it an ale/lager because there’s ale and lager yeast in it and he umm… aled and lagered it? Hey, I don’t know much about making beer (I’m only the designated bottle-filler), but I sure know how to drink it.
The fabric is a fleece-backed sweatpant knit material from Girl Charlee. It’s very soft and cozy. I also love the shape of the pants and the cuff at the ankle to keep the pants from riding up while sleeping and for extra warmth.
Just like my other pairs of Hudsons, I omitted the drawstring at the waist. Random front tummy bumps aren’t my thing since I rarely tuck in my shirts.
Kind of a random picture, but I wanted the tree in it. Plus you get to see the plain but awesome pocket! The pockets are great for carrying cell phones, holiday cookies, and whatever else you can fit to carry around the house.
At Costco, there’s a Beer Advent Calendar (that lovely thing I’m sitting next to). Yes, you heard me… a BEER ADVENT CALENDAR. There are 24 German beers inside, all over 16 ounces. They are DELICIOUS. And this is our third box since October. Don’t judge.
It also helps that the box is super festive and has a picture of Rothenburg, Germany! DD and I loved this city when we visited Europe last year. I can imagine how adorable it must look when it’s all decked out in holiday decorations.
Oh, and by the way, this post makes my 100th post on Sew RED-y! Holy macaroni! Sew RED-y has only been up and running for 1 1/2 years. That’s almost a post a week! I think this calls for a drink…
Cheers! Here’s to 100 + more!
